pimp my xbox

Discussion in 'Xbox Consoles' started by The_Loose_Cannon, Jul 26, 2007.

  1. ok before we go any further, this is probably going to lead to illegal activities! almost guarenteed. SO i urge all of you if you have external links for me to see or certain programs that you are not of legal game play- do not I REPEAT DO NOT POST THEM HERE! please PM me if you have any ideas of where to go and what to get.

    in no way shape and form am i encouraging any of you to do this to any of your game systems. what you do with your own property is your choice. i do not condone these methods if you do not wish to do any sort of modification


    now on to the questions. how do i mod this thing? is it like the wii with a wiikey? if so, i know where to obtain them and ive seen some decent sites (unfortunitly im not on my home laptop so the sites are currently saved my favorits on a different computer).

    whats the best advice for me? anyone ever mod out their xbox? im looking to do emmulators primarily. i saw a LONG time ago my cousin had almost every game system on his xbox. i want that done and i dont care how much it costs me (hopefully nothing)

    so hook a moderator up! lets see what todays nerds can do for me :)

    LOL, why do you think that? As long as you aren't talking about pirating then it is completely within the rules to discuss modding and backups and all that good stuff.

    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.

  13. 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

    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 :(

    *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!!
