Product Description Releate Products Other XBOX 360 Products

The X360Key was the world’s first announced Xbox 360 USB loader which is being produced by the same group that made the extremely successful line of mod chips for the Wii the WiiKey & DriveKey. The Xbox 360 key is based of Linux, just like the WODE was. This means that it is compatible with multiple file systems, but more importantly, is that the feature list can grow and grow and grow. Initially the device will only be made to work with the "PHAT" Xboxs and the 9504 and 0225 slim Xboxs. There are more Slim Xbox types to come in the future, so please look at the compatibility table below to check if it will work on your box.

Xbox 360 key consists of 2 parts, a motherboard and a remote.

The motherboard connects to the SATA bus inside the Xbox 360, and sits between the drive and the Xbox 360 motherboard. Xbox 360 key is a full-fledged computer system running embedded Linux. It is capable of many things such as

  •     * Emulating the Xbox 360 DVD drive
  •     * Reading USB hard drives and other USB media with various file systems
  •     * Updating itself and other hardware from USB media
  •     * Communicating with the remote and other external USB devices
  •     * And a lot more! (embedded Web server and Wifi connectivity for example)

The remote is a simple yet stylish piece of hardware that features an OLED display and 3 buttons. It connects to the X360key motherboard via a high speed USB2 connection. It also has USB for connecting USB hard drives and other devices. The OLED and buttons are used to control various aspects of X360key. It is also used for browsing attached USB media devices and launching games.

X360key FAQ

If you have a stock drive
a dump must be obtained using available tools (we recommend the Maximus Lizard 360).

Firmware Dumping
At launch xKey can't dump the drive firmware. Updates, planned for shortly after release, will allow xKey to perform this task for you. There is no need to flash your drive and 0225+ owners can enjoy all the benefits of xKey without the hassle of swapping PCBs or waiting for an unlock hack

Configuring xKey - Fats
xKey requires a dump of the original firmware from your drive. This is copied to the xKey's SD card, when the xKey boots the firmware file its analysed, the drive type is identified and the drive key etc. are extracted.

Configuring xKey - Slims
xKey requires the file set (dummy.bin etc.) that can be created with available tools, these are copied to the xKey's SD card. When the xKey boots, the files are analysed, the drive type is identified and the drive key etc. are extracted.

If you have CFW
You should have a backup of the required files and they are used to configure xKey. There is no need to reflash your drive with OFW
