From ConsoleMods Wiki
Jump to navigation Jump to search

XeXMenu is a dashboard for the Xbox 360. It is often recommended in JTAG/RGH tutorials as the first dashboard to be installed as it has an installer that shows up under the Games library in the official dash. However, it is limited in function compared to more feature rich dashboards such as Freestyle Dash or Aurora.

A video demonstration of installing XeXMenu can be found on MrMario2011's channel.

  3. Make sure you have hidden folders enabled.
    • Go into File Explorer under View on top, check mark Hidden Items.
  4. Plug the flash drive into your PC. Open the Content folder, select "New Folder", and name it 0000000000000000 (16 zeroes). Open the new folder, then drag the CODE9999 folder into it.
  5. Safely eject your flash drive and plug it into your Xbox 360. Navigate to the Demos section of your dashboard, and it should list XeXMenu there. Select it to launch it.
