How to Play Grand Theft Auto Vice City on Xbox 360 with JTAG RGH
Grand Theft Auto Vice City is one of the most popular and iconic games in the GTA series. It was originally released for PlayStation 2 in 2002, and later for PC and Xbox in 2003. However, if you want to play it on your Xbox 360, you will need a special modification called JTAG RGH.
JTAG RGH stands for Joint Test Action Group Reset Glitch Hack. It is a method of hacking the Xbox 360 console to run unsigned code, such as homebrew applications, emulators, and backup games. With JTAG RGH, you can play GTA Vice City on your Xbox 360 using an ISO file or a DVD.
However, JTAG RGH is not a simple or risk-free process. It requires soldering wires to the motherboard of your Xbox 360, which can damage your console if done incorrectly. It also voids your warranty and can get you banned from Xbox Live. Therefore, you should only attempt JTAG RGH if you are confident in your skills and willing to accept the consequences.
If you are still interested in playing GTA Vice City on your Xbox 360 with JTAG RGH, here are the steps you need to follow:
Check if your Xbox 360 is compatible with JTAG RGH. You can do this by looking at the manufacturing date and the dashboard version of your console. You can find these information on the back of your console and in the system settings menu. Generally, consoles made before June 2009 and with dashboard version lower than 2.0.7371 are compatible with JTAG RGH.
Obtain the necessary tools and materials for JTAG RGH. You will need a soldering iron, solder, flux, wires, a NAND reader/writer, a glitch chip (such as CoolRunner or Matrix), a USB drive, and a computer.
Dump the NAND of your Xbox 360. The NAND is the flash memory chip that stores the system software of your console. You need to dump it to get the CPU key and the DVD key of your console. To do this, you need to solder wires from the NAND reader/writer to the NAND chip on your motherboard, and connect it to your computer via USB. Then, you need to use a software such as Nandpro or J-Runner to read and save the NAND data.
Create an XeBuild image of your Xbox 360. This is a modified version of the system software that allows you to run unsigned code on your console. To do this, you need to use a software such as J-Runner or AutoGG to input your CPU key and DVD key, select your motherboard type and glitch chip type, and generate an XeBuild image.
Flash the XeBuild image to your Xbox 360. This is the process of writing the modified system software to your console’s NAND chip. To do this, you need to use the same software and hardware as in step 3, but this time write the XeBuild image instead of reading the NAND data.
Solder the glitch chip to your Xbox 360. This is the device that injects a glitch signal to the CPU of your console, allowing it to boot into the XeBuild image. To do this, you need to solder wires from the glitch chip to specific points on your motherboard, depending on your glitch chip model and motherboard type. You can find diagrams and tutorials online for different combinations of glitch chips and motherboards.
Test if your Xbox 360 boots into XeBuild image. If everything went well, you should see a blue screen with some information about your console when you turn it on. This means that your console is now JTAG RGH hacked and ready to run unsigned code.
Download GTA Vice City ISO file or DVD for Xbox 360. You can find these online from various sources, but be careful of viruses and malware. Make sure that the file or disc is compatible with JTAG RGH consoles.
Copy GTA Vice City ISO file or DVD to your USB drive or hard drive. You can use a software such as XBOX Image Browser or ISO2GOD to extract
