    Been out of the modding scene for quite some time now... was told by a friend that he modded his 360 with just a usb drive and some software and now he can play all the backup games he wants.

    Personally I think he's full of S**T, but I wanted to confirm. I've been researching it and they all seem like scams.

    Is there a method of softmodding that doesn't require any hardware modification? All I want to be able to do is play backup games. I checked around a while ago and I had one of the only 2 drives going that couldn't be modded at the time so I was SOL.

    Any updates that I should be aware of?

    Ok, I have one of those drives then I think...

    EDIT - found my old post, my drive is Liteon DG-165S with FW 1175... so I guess I'm screwed, oh well.

    I figured my buddy was a lying d**khead, but I wanted to verify before I told him so! lol

    Thanks for the info! :)

    xkey is an option

    c4eva is working on the firmware for your model liteon,so one assumes there will be a flash method at some point

    That's been since January though... I'm not too hopeful of it at this point.

    i know its hard to remember but the original slim firmware was not released for almost a year, with they're need to make money, they have to figure out the best way to release it so they earn the most profit, they also have to make it as noob friendly as possible, and get all of the probes made or whatever the additional needed hardware turns out to be. they also have to rework jungleflasher, it will be close to complete when that finally release the information and the firmware!
