    It probaply needs the rest of the space for itself (games or xbox live if you're on it).

    you're just full of useless posts, aren't you, joshua? it's easy to see how you're already a member. -_-

    *reported*

    billie, before you come back asking how to softmod or install a chip, search and read the guides first. you really shouldn't have to reply at all from this point.

    Joshua30, what type of post is that? post padding? edit your sig to conform to forum specs ASAP.
    4. If you want to use both text and image in your signature the image should not be more than 500 pixels wide and 100 pixels tall, and you can use up to three lines of text.

    As far as selecting hard vs soft mods....


    ---Do you play on live? Yes leans toward hard mod, which can be setup with a mod/unmod switch for stealth

    ---Do you know how to solder, or feel comfortable paying someone else to solder your system for you, which usually runs a minimum of $20(If you're lucky!) If you're comfortable soldering or paying 20-50 or more for someone to do it on top of your chip cost, then you're leaning toward mod.

    ---Do you have any personal feelings about wanting to 'keep it stock' or not wanting to open the system? If you do, then this leans towards softmodding.

    ---Would you rather pay between 50-100 dollars to have someone professionally chip your system(Knock 20-50 off if you can do it yourself) which will probably be more stable; or do a software-based install yourself for (generally) $20 or less? No explanation needed here.

    Each side has it's pros and cons. Many people consider chips to be a more stable option, I personally have done several soft jobs, and have nver encountered any problems. Chips are perceived to be 'safer', probably in part due to the fact that many people have been working with chips since the saturn, and just feel more comfortable with familiar choices. Softs DID have problems when they first cme about, but have since become vastly mroe stable. IF YOU PLAY(OR INTEND TO) ON LIVE WITH THIS SYSTEM, YOU DEFINITELY WANT TO GO WITH A HARDMOD THAT COMES WITH A SWITCH TO ENABLE/DISABLE MOD. However, may Live gamers either already have, or plan to switch to 360's for that soon anyways. It's ultimately a matter of preference, largely depending on your needs, funds, skills, and whether the idea of altering software or hardware seems 'safer' to you...

    softmods can be uninstalled, mod chips really can't unless you go solderless which i do not reccomend. But they can usually be disabled. Personally i do not use Live with my Xbox, so a hard mod is the only way to go. For both ease of use, easier recovery from problems, and very easy hard drive replacement.
    and make sure you have it installed by a professional.
