Okay so I have a regular old Xbox. I want to softmod it so I can play games (xbox games), emulators (PSX, N64, and SNES especially), and roms off of the HDD (I don't care about music or other things, but they would be nice to have also). Standard Xbox HDD size is 8-10GB. So I'll swap it out with my Seagate 250GB HDD (My HDD model works 100%) after I softmod. 1. So I should softmod it using the guide here (luckily, I do have a copy of the original Splinter Cell): http://forums.afterdawn.com/thread_view.cfm/558747 I have a friend who has ftp and streams anime to his xbox with xbox media center, so I can use his xbox to put the softmod on a memory card for me correct? Which dashboard is more user friendly (I AM A COMPLETE NEWBIE AND WANT TO DO EVERYTHING IN THE EASIEST MANNER SO THERE IS THE LOWEST % OF ME MESSING UP), UnleashX or Evox? Also please tell me how to put games, emulators, and roms on the xbox after I am done. Are there any apps out there I should get? 2. Then I should switch it out the HDD with my 250GB Seagate HDD using this guide here: http://forums.afterdawn.com/thread_view.cfm/407140 Hopefully these 3 youtube videos show the correct process to go through replacing the xbox HDD: http://youtube.com/watch?v=-MX6yk6MgGU http://youtube.com/watch?v=TciIVrkkpDw&mode=related&search= http://youtube.com/watch?v=oAaVfVgsAgo&mode=related&search= Any advice is greatly appreciated, links are welcome too.
