Alright guys, Ive been dying to mod my xbox into a media center to go with my big screen and 7.1 dolby surround

But Im quite new, so anyone who has softmodded before I would really appreciate some help

I plan on just taking another HD and placing in it, and leaving the orginal Xbox hd intact so that if something happens I can just swap them out again.

SO from what I gather I need xboxhdm 1.9, and the Eeprom of the Xbox and a hd.

SO I have all of this except the eeprom, and I dont have a clue how to get it or what to do with it afterwards. Just for the record, I dont have a memcard or any of the exploitable games.

edie: Ive heard the xbox can play divx, is this true? (modded of course)

thanx guys

hmm... this is borderline modchip discussion don't think it'll last long.

I've never heard of modding an x-box without a chip, but hey if its possible I'd like to hear it as well.

yes, Im not implying its use as a way of playing backups
if the mods wanna close it thats cool
But I have talked to people in other threads and just wanted to get some help

And yes it can be done, and there are a lot of faqs abbout it but I just would like to talk to someone wh has done it before

To be perfectly honest, due to the grey nature of this discussion, you'd be better off discussing this on a board more focused on this sort of thing.

In order to soft mod you need three things -> The right game, a memory card, and a pro action replay. Divx is possible.

Bull, you dont need any of that. All you need is a DVD burner, something that can make XISOs, something that can burn ISOs to a CD or DVD, and xboxhdm. You dont need any specific game or mem card.

I wish I could give you the site, but it aint in the guys sig at halomods anymore. If I find it, i'll let you know. Then again, there are plenty of tuts for xboxhdm.

But JanusX is telling you a way to do it so you don't have to open your box. With xboxhdm, you still need to open it. But I don't see why people are afraid to open it. It's a computer, like any computer, maybe a couple of modifications but what the hey. And don't tell me you can't buy parts for it if you screw up b/c you can! I installed my Xecuter 3, since i have a v1.0 I had a hard time getting the solder out of the pinholes. I actually burnt one to a crisp and it is nothing but black. But it still works....no damage done. Anyway, yeah, back on subject, xboxhdm even lets you put new hard drives in(so I've heard) without a modchip. It's your best bet for softmodding. You just answer a few questions, and away you go.
