    First off, you might ask why?
    Why would I want to do this, well, there are many reasons as to why this would be a useful thing to do:

    -Fix bugs that Bethesda doesn't seem to fix using console commands
    -Create many giant chickens for you to hunt
    -Build new areas using only console commands
    -Cheat using the console commands
    -Continue your save on the PC so you don't have to start over


    You also don't even need a good gaming computer to do this, you can actually use an awful laptop that lags even on low settings.
    This will not stop you from simply using console commands to fix problems, and then save and put your save back onto your Xbox.

    So, anyone can do this and with (almost) any kind of computer.

    You are welcome, I made sure to include practically everything a person would ever do for the tutorial, so it should be almost impossible for a person to get lost, and I even added images to assist with it.
    Didn't realize I would be making so many, though.

    I should have the other two parts done by tomorrow, and I will try to update this with whatever I feel like should be included, or even what is asked.

    Maybe even an FAQ...

    Fixed up Step VI with tutorials for both tools (information for both tools can ALSO be found on their respective pages).


    I might mod people's saves, so if you need your save modded, then just give me a link to it (you will need to at least get it off of your Xbox 360 Hard Drive and onto the computer) then I will download and mod it for you.
    You would just have to let me know what you want modded, and provide a batch file.

    Do you recommend any specific brands of USB drives, or are 'most' brands compatible with Xbox?

    Hey, I could use some help. I've looked through many threads and YouTube acct. but I can't find an answer. I've done everything in this tutorial but I load Skyrim and click on the save and after 5 to 10 seconds it quits to the desktop. PLEASE HELP. (Also, when I click on the save file the picture is messed up)

    Wow, haven't seen this topic in a while, lol.

    Do you have any mods installed on your PC version?
    Also, are you using this to convert your save back to the 360 version at some point, or just use the PC?

    Oh my gosh!!! Thank you for replying! Well, I have high texture packs that I disabled. So those don't count. I have Dawnguard, hearthfire, and dragonborn mods/dlc's and those are also on the Xbox. I am going to revert it back to xbox360, just cause I lost a mask and was going to get it back. But again, this is the issue and I haven't found a solution for the longest time. Thanks for replying back!!!

    hmm....upload your save, and I'll see what happens on my end.

    Also, the distorted image for the save is normal when converting saves.

    Would you like the original Xbox save? And also if you can get it to work, I will try myself again, but would you just add the mask? (if you can work it.) The mask is Volsung, the code is 00061CAB. But anyway, i'll up load it!!

    Your save works on my end, and you had the save as a .txt, but I changed it back to a .eos and then extracted the Savegame.dat. Then I changed the .dat to a .ess and then put that in my save directory.

    ......but I am not going to add in the mask.


    ....I'm going to add in something much, much better.
