    I would like to play backup games. Should I get a chip and solder it onto my xbox360, or should I flash the firmware? ...which method is the best? ...or do I have to do both?

    flashing the firmware is the easiest way to do it and you dont have to spend any money(unless you dont have sata).

    flashing firmware is by far the best and easiest way to go. if you don't have sata on your computer just buy a 15 dollar sata pci card(via 6421), have no worries, and also way cheaper than the globe or nme chip. trust and TONS of support for it here. can't ask for more.

    You can get one cheap from ebay(usally, it's where I got mine) if not then almost any large PC place sells them. But remember, do not go on xbox live with copied games, you will get banned

    well first you need to find which drive you have. and there are plenty of tuts on here that will help you regardless. hitachi and samsung are different methods, just let us know which one so we can further help you.
