Okay, been seeing a lot of post about softmodding, so I thought Id help. What you need to soft mod: -Xbox (duh) -USB port -Action replay (the one that comes with memory card, and the usb cable where you can connect it to your computer.) -Itools game save. -The game with the exploit (The games are 007 Agent under fire, Splinter Cell, and Mechassualt (the old version) I recommend you use the 007 agent under fire one. Splinter cell i heard is hard to figure out. and there's two different versions of Mechassualt. You also need to find out what Xbox version you have. To do this; from your m$ dashboard go to settings and then system info, what for it to scroll down to K: then a number and .s; Copy this number down, and search it with google, and a website telling you which version you have should come up. Once you have the game; and the action replay, you need the itools game save, where you can get from here: Download mirc (from mirc.com) and Smart FTP (from smartftp.com) Run mirc. Options menu should come up, if not go to tools, options. Fill in a username/nick name, then on the left, hit servers. You should see a box, and when you click on it a bunch of servers come up. Pick Efnet (random US sever). Then connect to server. After it connects another box should come up that says enter a channel name. Type in #xbins and then join. In the chat type "/msg xbins !list" without the quotes. A new chat should come up; Then copy down the information it gives you, like server, username, and password. Start up smart ftp, type in the server, username, and password at the top, and connect. The Itools can be found in xbox/operating system/linux/distributions/ltools/ Now run your action replay cd that came with the memory card. Install it, and when you get to the AR screen, you should see a middle colloum, called PC Database. Find the file you downloaded, and click and drag, it to the PC database. The save should now be under whatever the game is (for example: Agent under fire save; would be in agent under fire folder.) Now plug in your memory card to the usb cable, and put the usb cable in your comp. Click and drag the save to the memory card, and wait for about a minute or so. After this is done, plug it into your controller. On the dashboard, go to memory; choose memory card, find the file, and copy it to your hard drive. Put in the game. When you get to the main screen, load the save you just copied to your hard drive. It will start Itools. When it starts, it will say the name of your game, press B ( If you press anything else i think you will get an error 21 or something). Select UDE Install from the list. Follow the instructions, you will need to know what kernel you have and what version. (kernel was in system info, the K After that, let it install, then when it tells you to turn it off, turn it off, but not before that! Your Xbox is now modded. For burning check: http://forums.afterdawn.com/thread_view.cfm/141037 Its a wonderful guide, written by Quadratic. Troubleshooting: Don't load the save from your memory card, this will result in an error 21. If you try to run Xbox live, you will get an error 21. A problem I was having was when it went to install, the screen went green, and the button would flash orange. I found out though, if i waited till it was green, everything was fine. Good Luck.
