ok I know I should just be patient and sit at my computer and do a search for everything I want to know. I know I will be blasted but there are some very helpful and patient guys on this board so I know that I will be assisted. Ok what I am looking for is what are the best softmodding software, hardware modding chips for the Xbox? Should I get specific softmodding or modding chips for Xbox's models? What are some of the best sites that have detailed pictures and descriptions on how to install both a softmodded software and a modchip(solder and non-solder versions).Best sites to that have detailed pictures and descriptions on how to install a larger harddrive? I know nothing about emulators and emulated games. Some one educate the uneducated please. I want to get the most out my Xbox before the Xbox 360 is released.
