Ok so you got a xbox, and you wanna softmod it and have tons of fun. If you don't know what what softmod is It lets you mod your xbox w/o opening it.If you are wandaring what you can do with a modded xbox you can play burnt games,play emulaters,And mod games (usally people like to mod halo).

What you need:

Action replay (You need this to transfer linux to your xbox)

Meccahsult,Splintercell 1, or 007 Agent Under Fire ( you need one of these and it has to be orignal, the reason you need this is because these games have a linux program in it)

Your gonna need a linux installer each game for if your gonna use meccahsult (i prefer this game) AIM me i have the installer.

If you are gonna use Splintercell download http://eastcoastxbox.com/modules.php?name=Downloads&d_op=viewdown... SC%20UXE%20Installer%20v2.7
(scroll down)

If your gonna use 007 Agent Under Fire
http://eastcoastxbox.com/modules.php?name=Downloads&d_op=viewdown... ller%20v2.7
(scroll down)

Ok so you got all those Things then your ready.

2. Now drag you linux installer onto Memory Card.

5. Now ok you got your linux Installer on your xbox. Ok restart your xbox.

6. Put in the game you are using.

7. Ok load up all the profiles and you should see "run linux" go there.

8. Ok it took you to a whole differnt screen it'll say netherlands or english, if u speak better in netherland then pick that if not pick english.

9. The Rest of the questions it'll give you is really easy exept when it asks you if you want Nk patcher.06 or Nk patcher.67 Pick Nk Patcher.06. then when it asks you if you want Unleashedx or evoltuionX. PICK UNLEASHEDX.

10. After that you are all done your xbox is modded.

I am sending a bunch of NOOBS to your tutorial. I mod with chips and when I did try softmod, I had the hack saves on a memory card. I never even tried to learn this method but now I know where to send the ones that continually ask me.

lol..i wrote this again because i haven't seen any softmodding tutorials on the front of the fourms and people who want to softmod their xbox is too lazy to use the search box but w/e it's kool. and oo by the way if you screw up ever on softmodding your xbox never think it's a good idea to hit the "Restore xbox" unless you got "slayer disks" and slayer disks work for hard modded xbox's.

woot?

simple question is there a way to soft-mod only using ur xbox and your computer?
#5
Technically speaking, you may be able to transplant your xbox hard drive into your pc. Booting with some sort of xbox hard drive disc with a copy of the savegame that you need on it in unzipped form. Obviously, you'd have to follow some of the instructions from this site on how to do the hard drive upgrade, then using either linux or dos tools on that boot disc, copy the appropriate save over to your xbox hd. Then relock. Then put it in your xbox. I'd be interested in knowing if this method works or not, i don't have any idea if the xbox hard drive can be unlocked and relocked without apply the soft mod to gain access to the eeprom.bin file or not. *shrug* Action replay is 30 bucks.

FIRST OF ALL
Coming to Afterdawn, criticizing the members and quality of their volunteer work is no way to get the help you need any quicker. Also, you need to remember that this not a live site and posts are not answered right away.

It seems that you may have a problem that others would benefit knowing the answer to. I would first search the threads to see if your issue has been tackled and if not, post one specific to your case and name it accordingly.

PM me and please clearly explain what the issue is. I've dealt with UK xboxes and I may be able to help you.

you need action reply max. BUT this only mods the xbox as far as allowing you to get ot the setup screen! it does do much else...
i'm further alone than this. also! my xbox requires audio mod not a fonts mod which is what this one is.

Okie it seems that the links i posted WORK! but there in dutch let me find some english ones. but you need to have WINRAR and when you download it to your desktop it'll be in a form of books and just drag that to your action replay DATA BASE. and remeber you need action replay MAX that's the new one!
