    Modding an Xbox eh? There is a lot to read, you have to make yourself comfortable with knowledge gathered from all of this. I spent hours reading about modding my Dreamcast and playing certain games on it. I still haven't achieved my goal lol. Like everybody else said, Google is your prime resource. I suggest contacting someone with good soldering skills and probably someone who knows a lot about modding and emulators.

    I know how to play games on my computer, but modding isn't my cup of tea.

    You know what would be cool?...If you took fine sandpaper to the casing of the Xbox and had it airbrushed white.



    Pimpin' ain't easy.

    well i talked to mitch2025 and he gave me a bunch of information like using spliter cell as a patch (as long as its not the platinum edition). then using a cable that connects the controler to the USB ports on your computer and using the memory cards. once i do all that we're going to access the harddrive with the network cables.

    i want to play burned disks too just litterally do whatever possible with this thing. i cant wait either!

    ETA- thats extremely hot! i want to do that now! im artistic enough

    Why are you asking this here? Go to the xBox 360 forums.

    I register there asking about the xbox 360 Simpsons Limited Edition but it seems it's only going to be available in contest and promotions. I think Microsoft made a bad move on that. Only 100 will be made.

    1. The only 360 forum you can link to here is the first one.
    2. It only has 64 members and only a few active ones so you would get many more replies here.
    3. She has the original Xbox.
    4. I want that Simpsons 360 so bad.

    the best site for xbox modding needs is xbox-scene (my ban is almost up! woot! dont ask, its a LOOOONG story lol). once you mod an xbox, its like a whole new system. if you install linux on it then their is almost nothing that cant be done on your xbox. i liked being able to get on the net on my xbox and download a save file for a game and just put it on the correct place on the HDD and then load up the game. also modded halo1 was the best. however my xbox randomly died one day. RIP modded xbox

    well, i dont know a thing about modding, but my cousin's bf has his to the point where he has almost every nintendo game on his. he doesnt even own any xbox games.

    and he's a great kid and all, but the biggest pot head i've ever met.

    *legal to forums* A little birdy told me about this site www dot xbox-scene dot com, It has info on a bunch of chips but since I dont like to mess with my systems (if I only have one) I dont use these but they are interesting. Some you have to solder onto the mainboard, some are plugged into the mainboard. I really dont like to mess with electronics but if your risky this is right up your alley. And speaking of alleys, There are a bunch of stores in chinatown or mainstreet that have mini malls with video game stores in them, they usually have Modders there and Bootleg games. (I bought a dreamcast with 150+ games on it a while back). I hope this helps.

    modding the xbox...hmm.

    do it!!

    as you've mentioned, you have the "splintercell" hack which is effectively
    known as a "softmod" or you can chip the thing with countless mod chips
    which can either be soldered in, or solderless.

    i modded my sons last year with an xecuter 2.6CE chip which a friend kindly
    gave me. it was a solder job and although i'd only ever soldered a couple of
    9V battery terminals before, found it relatively straight forward although it
    took me around an hour to complete the job.

    i bought a butane powered soldering iron with tips that could be changed.
    that was a smart move because some of the solders are really really small.

    a magnifying glass is recommended!!

    i also added a Maxtor 160GB hard drive and used an AID disk to install loads
    of apps (i know it's the easy method but couldn't be bothered changing
    default.xbe's etc).

    now the xbox is region free (games and dvd's) and has a switcheable bios
    so that is can run some games in 480p (via component) which was a feature
    removed from PAL xbox's.

    i've loaded 24 of my sons games onto the drive and a few movies and also
    some music and there's still around 70GB of free space.

    i use an old build of xbox media centre (xbmc) as the dashboard and it's
    fantastic, if you hook it up to your network you can use the xbox as a
    media centre with much better options than the xbox 360.

    to sum it up....it's what the xbox was made for!!
