Xbox 360 Neighborhood (or Xbox Neighborhood for short) is an official Windows extension tool that is meant to be used with development kits, but also can be used on RGH/JTAG exploited consoles. The tool allows basic FTP features as well as live peek/poking of values and running XEX files remotely. Xbox Neighborhood is often used for modding as it provides a simple interface into your console.

A video demonstration of how to install Xbox 360 Neighborhood can be found on Modded Warfare's channel.

Note: Since Xbox Neighborhood is an official Microsoft tool, it can not be distributed. Do not ask for download links.

Adding a Console

  1. Place xbdm.xex on the root of HDD1:. If the file xbdm.ini is present, delete it. If you are on a real developer or testing kit, skip to step 3.
  2. Open DashLaunch and expand the Plugins section. Highlight plugin1, press A, and navigate to and select xbdm.xex. Press RB, highlight where you want to save your launch.ini, and press X to save.
  3. Reboot your console, and launch Xbox 360 Neighborhood on your PC.
  4. If not automatically prompted, select "Add Xbox 360".
  5. Enter the console name (default "Jtag") or the IP address. It will add the console into your Xbox 360 Neighborhood window.
    • You can change the icon and name by editing the "xbdm.ini" file that is generated in the root of HDD1. Valid names are black gray blue white nosidecar.

Taking a Screenshot

  • Hang/Crash
    • Crashes are inevitable in Xbox Neighborhood. When they happen, they will also crash explorer.exe, the interface of Windows. To restore explorer.exe, press Win+R and type "explorer.exe" and press Enter. You can prevent it from crashing explorer.exe on Windows 7, by opening File Explorer, pressing Alt > Tools > Folder Options > View, and ensuring "Launch folder windows in a separate process" is checked. If not, change it and press Apply. By default, Windows 10 has this option checked.
