Hey guys, this tutorial will teach you how to download and burn Xbox 360 games. This tutorial was 100% put together by me (gurvirj95). Make sure you are able to hotswap or have a flashed Xbox 360. Also if you have an questions or concerns, just post in this thread. I'll do my best at answering you're question.
If you don't know how to hotswap, follow Dan's tutorial here
This tutorial was made for people who have PC's. If you have a mac, use this program instead.
The two ways you can download torrents is by either downloading directly from a server or by p2p (peer-to-peer). uTorrent speeds might be slower at times, depending on how many seeders and leechers there are. But JDownloader is a bigger app, your choice which you want to use.
Find links for the game you want. To do this, sign up on www.xbox360iso.com, it's free. Then on the forums, scroll down to Xbox 360 DVD Game downloads. Here you can click on any thread and search for any game you want. There will be a bunch of links for each game, just copy them all, and go back to JDownloader.
Note:Sometimes there will be only one link. This is a link to a .dlc file, which contains all the links and is openable by JDownloader. People use these files to hide the links so they're not reported. Just open the file in JDownloader.
Anyways, after you have the links, just click on the 'Linkgrabber' tab, and go to 'Add URL(s)'. If you have the links copied to clipboard, JDownloader may just take them automatically.
Then press the button at the top left and it will begin downloading. And it does do all the Captcha's itself.
Download the .torrent file and open it in uTorrent. It should begin downloading.
After your download is finished, you should have a bunch of .rar files. Sometimes when you download from uTorrent, you'll have the ISO and won't have to do the extracting. But in most cases, you do have to extract the ISO from all the .rar files. Just right-click on the first one, and go to extract here. Make sure you have Winrar installed. You can find the download link at the top of this thread.
2. Stealth Patching and Verifying
Download ABGX360 here.
Open ABGX360 after installing it.
First click on the 'Autofix' tab and change the Level 2 to Level 3. Then go back to the first tab find the ISO.
Open the ISO with abgx and it will stealth patch the ISO and verify it.
Let the stealth checking begin...
If it passes the Stealth Check, it is 99% safe to take on Xbox LIVE, even if it doesn't pass verification. If it doesn't pass the stealth check, do NOT take it on Xbox LIVE.
Abgx will create a .dvd file to go with your ISO if you didn't get one with your ISO, if you did, abgx will check and fix it. If your ISO didn't pass the stealth check, delete your .dvd and try again.
After your done everything above, you're ready to burn your ISO onto a disc.
3. Burning onto a Disc
Download ImgBurn here. It's free.
The first thing you have to do is go to Tools -> Setting and then click on the 'Write' tab. There, look at Layer Breaks (For DL Media), and click the 'User Specified' radio button. In the text box, type in 1913760.
After you do that, go back to the main menu, and click 'Write image file to disc'.
At the top, where it says 'Please select a file', click the yellow folder button to browse for the game. Once you find it, open the .dvd file, not the .ISO. I know the .dvd one is only a few kilobytes, I'm not even sure how it works, just do it.
Next, you'll have to set the write speed in the bottom right corner. Make sure if it's on 2x or 2.4x. Any higher will not be read by the Xbox 360. Well, not how you want it to at least.
Then click the shiny button on the bottom left to start the burning process.
It should take about 40 minutes. After it;s finished, you don;t have to let if verify, but when it says it's 100% finished, it may still take a minute to completely finish.
