I did something similar, except that I didn't see a reason to use a different profile than my normal online one. I copied my save file and song cache to one stick, and have another save file, song cache, TU4 and the customs on the other stick (and some hardware settings file the Score Hero instructions told me to copy). I put the first stick in when I want to play the game without customs and start the GoD version, which has TU5 built in. When I want to play with customs I put the 2nd stick in and start the game from disc. When I start the disc it wants to install the update and I decline, at which point it logs me out of Live and continues otherwise normally.

I suppose using separate profiles there would be less danger of accidentally deleting a save file if the wrong stick was installed.

BTW, people who want to try this should use the bulkiest flash drives possible. The 360's front USB connections are recessed, making the smaller drives more difficult to plug in. I have a tiny 16 GB drive (like this) that I couldn't find and I'm glad. I bought one of these and its probably the shortest stick I'd want to deal with; the rear end of it only barely sticks out. (It doesn't need anything like 16 GB for a couple of save files, but I used the Xbox customize option to minimize the storage reserved for Xbox use so that I can use the rest for other things if I want).

I'm having a lot of fun with these customs--thanks for mentioning it, Christopher_H! 120 new songs really breathes new life into the game for me. 14 of them even have built-in pro g/b charts; I may have to dust off my Squier .

I should spend some time combing through that list and listen to some of the songs that I'm not familiar with on Google Music.

I forgot the things that TU5 fixed; I just ran into the "pushing a crate into a truck" freeze this afternoon . Also the increase in highway opacity was a wonderful innovation.

Turned out that keys-on-guitar unlock required 5S'ing a certain number of RB3 basic guitar charts . The "Guitar Immortal" goal was supposed to require 50 5S'd songs (medium difficulty at a minimum) but it let me have it at 43; whatever.

I'd completely forgotten the goals system.
