Just wondering do you have to hardware modify the xbox elite or can it be softmodded to play backed up games. (fingers crossed on softmod) If you have to hardware modify it. Whats the best mod to use (was looking at buying "Xecuter Blaster 360 NE" and is flashing the drive afterwards easy to do? My last mod was done for me on xbox premium but im interested in purchasing an elite and would give it a stab at modding it myself. Ive modded a good few wii's myself with wiikeys already. Hope you can help. Cheers, Al.
