Install XBoX Games To Your Hdd Over the Internet Using Ftp Complete Tutorial Guide


Recommended Posts

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cyfbxuMgI4M&t=480sHello everyone!

First post, and happy to be here. I want to share something that will add value to the community. I've put together a video tutorial on how you can install games directly to the XBOX HDD through the internet and FTP. All you'll need is your softmodded XBOX, an Ethernet cable, and the HDD Ready games you want on the HDD. You'll be up and running with it in no time. Full how-to video is below. Please let me know if this video helps you so that I can make XBOX content that makes your gaming experience more enjoyable.

 

Thanks,

Blaine

Works for windows 10 as well ?

yes, this works on windows 10, I have done this with all windows versions starting with xp all the way to the current windows 10. though i would not recommend filezilla for your FTP client, instead i would use FlashFXP

I thought this was just standard. This has always been the way to transfer games to the hdd. Even back when the scene was alive in the early 00’s this was the done thing. Oh well maybe there’s people out there that didn’t know it could be done. 

Personally like @M0RPH10U5 I’ve been doing it this way for years!!  Download the game, extract the iso and ftp it across.

Back in the hayday people I modded for had no idear about FTP.

I have never cloned a xbox drive when copying to a new drive I just set up a FTP sesion and go to bed or work sometimes both. But then when I was modding a 160igig drive was considered huge and if you had 160gig in a desktop you where lucky.

Lol, yeah, I remember those days. Back when terabyte drives were just a dream, and ssd's were far and few, and expensive as hell.

My 1st desk top had a HUGE 10 megabyte hard drive and my mate was running a BBS using a Comodore 64 with a hacked bios and a 7 megabyte Hard drive.

Just throwing my bit in as not everybody knows this.

The Xbox is capable of mounting xiso directly from hard drive using attach.xbe. There isn't any reason to extract/decompress your xiso files simply drop the xiso into the (GAME FOLDER) along with attach.xbe (renamed to default.xbe) and a nice default.png and you're done!

UNLESS, you want to play MGS2 or Jade Empire then you will need to use xiso split beforehand.

Most of the tools I've mentioned are available in rocky5 github.

For what it is worth (probably not much) I used Filezilla on my mac to copy the chimp app over to my xbox for a clone, and it caused the system to hang after the first two ok checks.  I was able to delete it, use another ftp app called Cyberduck, and then chimp worked without issues.

I had no idea there was a problem with using Filezilla (something about permissions, I think), until I came across a reddit post from a couple of years ago mentioning that FileZilla transfers cause problems with the chimp clone app.

      Hello everyone!
      Something very strange is happening with my softmodded xbox and I really can’t figure what’s wrong.
      I recently got a used xbox in very good condition, cleaned thoroughly, clock capacitor removed, top notch condition overall.
      So, I installed a new 1TB WD hard drive (WD10EZEX) and everything went great.
      In the Hexen options I selected to make a big partition so I can put the games in there.
      So, long story short, I transferred a whole lot of games with FTP using a crossover cable, directly from my laptop to my xbox, since the Ethernet method gave me low transfer speeds.
      Everything was going great and at last I had a big library to choose and enjoy, even downloaded a big coinops pack! So, as you can tell I spent countless hours just transferring every day.
      I played daily for 1-2 weeks with no problems at all.
      Then one day, all of a sudden I saw that coinops was missing and some of the games also.
      To my surprise, they were magically deleted, and it messed up the games folders, for example there was just an empty folder with the game name and nothing in it.
      I couldn’t find any info online, so I decided to start transferring again and see if it will do this again.
      And at that point I started getting errors in Filezilla, half of the files were transferring and the others failed. The ones that fail are always the same files, everytime in every game.
      I even tried a different cable, but the result was the same.
      Another weird thing is that the later partitions (X,Y,Z) sometimes have weird files in them and other times are empty, for example at one point there was a 500MB file called gta3image.iso or something like that, and at other times, just random assorted files that it creates and deletes by itself. I never mess with those partitions, it does this by itself. The only partition I access is F which is the main ~900GB partition with my “Games” folder.
      So now, I’m with a half-broken xbox and can’t really tell what’s wrong.
      Any advice or info what may be wrong (maybe something similar has happened to someone here), will be greatly appreciated!
      I’m attaching a Filezilla report with a game I just tried transferring (25 to Life is the game), maybe someone could figure something from the report:

      Please help me out fellas!
      Thanks!

      Hey there everyone, just purchased an unmodded Xbox and I'm having issues. I tested with multiple games and for some reason, the console cannot read discs. It can boot to the menu and works perfectly fine in that regard, but when I put a disc in the green lift around the eject key will blink for a few times and then... Nothing. I don't get a read error or damaged disc message, it simply does nothing. No error code, everything else seems to work perfectly fine, but it simply won't read discs. It is a samsung disc drive and I opened it and did a bit of cleaning, checked the wires for seemingly any damage or missing pins which there weren't any and nothing has changed. The disc drive is clean, the connections are fine, and the discs are all basically flawless. Any ideas or advice?

      Hi All,
      Thought I'd post a quick hello as I work my way through the huge overload of information on the internet with regards to modding. I believe I have a v1.4 or v1.5 as I have a Focus video chip. The internal condition is remarkable and shows how well I looked after it when younger - but now I want to be able to show my kids some of the games I played on the Xbox and before using an emulator so I'll be reading through guides etc on here
