    You're not gonna swap anything with xbox. Sorry buddy.

    You have two options:

    If you're good at soldering, you could put a modchip in your xbox.

    OR

    If you don't really want to go through all that, you can "softmod" your xbox, which is basically using a hacked game save to flash your xbox with a new bios and install a new dashboard on it. It's basically the easiest way to mod your xbox (and smartest, since you're not voiding the warantee)

    I think a solderless modchip would be a hell of a lot easier than a softmod. Learning to softmod in my personal view was harder than chipping my xbox(and I used solder)

    ive also modded my v7 with swapmagic and fliptop. i too cant solder, so when i wanted to mod my xbox, solderless modchips are the way to go. there are great solderless modchips out there right now. and they are really easy to install, but it does include opening you xbox, removing hd, removing dvd drive, till you get to the lpc holes, basicly most of the xecuter chips depend on a screw to tighten the solderless modchip, its the flashing of the chip and choosing and installing a dashboard where you might get a little stuck. but dont worry, theres alot of good guides out there that cover these issues, xbox-scene is where you should be really

    "I think a solderless modchip would be a hell of a lot easier than a softmod. Learning to softmod in my personal view was harder than chipping my xbox(and I used solder)"

    All you're doing is dropping a gamesave to a memory card and saving it to your xbox, compared to opening your xbox, taking everything apart, soldering, and putting it back together :|
