XEXMenu has two different versions, which can be incredibly useful for different situations.

The ISO version of XEX Menu is useful for people with new Jtag or RGH Xbox 360 consoles. You can burn the ISO of XEX Menu to a CD or DVD and place it in the Xbox 360. You can then load XEX Menu directly from the dashboard, giving you FTP access to the Jtag or RGH hacked Xbox 360. In addition you also have access to install content from a FAT32 formatted USB hard drive.

XEX Menu allows you to copy content to a USB hard drive using a computer and then load that content on the Xbox 360, this is an advantage for people who don’t wish to use special tools to gain access to the Xbox 360’s unique FATX file system.

The ISO of XEX Menu is also handy in helping newbies to the Xbox Scene in launching the installers for Dash launch after updating your console, allowing you to quickly restore the Xbox 360’s ability to boot in to a replacement dashboard, such as FreeStyle Dashboard.

The Live version of XEX Menu can be injected in to an Xbox 360 formatted USB stick using tools such as Party Buffalo Drive Explorer or even copied across from a USB hard drive to the internal hard drive when used with the ISO version of XEX Menu, allowing XEX Menu to be used without a disc in the Xbox 360 console.

Joint Test Action Group (JTAG) is an industry standard devised for testing printed circuit boards (PCBs) using boundary scan and was designed to quickly and easily test PCBs coming off a manufacturing assembly line. JTAG Forensics is a process that uses that same process and involves connecting the the Test Access Ports (TAPs) on a PCB via solder, molex or jig and then uses a supported JTAG Box (Riff, Z3X, ATF, etc.) to instruct the processor to acquire the raw data stored on the connected memory chip to get a full physical image from the device. This process is non-destructive to the phone.
