Hey guys, finally broke down and bought a xbox 360 on black friday.. Got a good deal. It is with Kinect and didn't know whether or not I should update it.. Well it did and I am also online as well. Now that being said Im an older guy that is just looking where to start.. Im a pretty fast learner and good researcher, but not sure where to start.. Seen lots of things from Google from soft modding the xbox by opening it to hotswapping it and not having to open it.. Back years ago I soft modded my regular xbox with a ftc files and hooking the xbox to my laptop.. then coping games was pretty easy... So im sure its a hell of a lot harder now.. Im not looking for step by step instructions here I can search for them, just want to know where to begin or maybe the steps on what the process is if that is possible. I have already read some things on here like flashing and burning disks.. not that I get any of that right now.. I would prefer not having to open up my NEW Xbox if possible.. But I will read the comments here and see what is possible and what is not.. Hope there is some help out there for a Noob to the xbox 360... thanks guys..
