I want to softmod my xbox using Softmod Installer Deluxe 4.5 - Nknave Edition, but to complete the install do I really need AID? I know that I must use AID but since I have a dial up connection it'll take me forever to obtain AID. And I was wondering if AID will be needed to complete the install or If i can run it later? I'll use AID 3.0 (which i dont have yet)the complete final version then update to a new version. Also I what software should I use to format a new HDD. I would like to upgrade my HDD. I have a doubt about what the softmod will do to my HDD. will SID reformat my the current xbox HDD the moment i run it? I know that in order to install a new HDD i must connect the new HDD and format it from a PC.
