    Hey everyone, i am new at modding and was wondering if anyone could answer my questions.
    I have a samsung dvd drive.

    1) What would be a good mod for xbox 360?
    2) Is the mod wired to the dvd drive or the motherboard?
    3) What are cons of having a mod?
    4) How can I make a backup of my org frimware if the mod does get wired to the dvd drivea and I screw up?
    5) Is there anyway I could screw this up?


    Thank You advance for any help that you can give.
    Oh, and sorry for any stupid questions asked.

    1.) use a firmware mod
    2.) no, it's not wired to anything, it's just software
    3.) possibly getting banned from Xbox Live
    4.) if you flash your drive, the backup firmware is made automatically, and once again, no wiring to do
    5.) not really, if you follow the instructions EXACTLY (the instructions that come w/ the firmware) then you'll be okay, just make sure you keep you 360 grounded somehow, i use a wire to touch the 360's metal case and my pc's metal case.


    no problem, we're here to help :)

    It depends on what brand drive you have but the newest for both drives are the newest ixtreme firmwares
