yes, or you could do a search, or look in the tutorials section at the probably 10 or 12 guides on ftp transfering alone.

If you downloaded a GAME using BT, that's illegal so I wouldn't bring it up again. Hopefully you don't get banned. The only reason to mod an XBox is to play the games that you already own and that you have backed up to DVD or your hard drive. Not to steal games on the internet. wink.gif

To quote the FAQ...

If you are dumb enough.. to admit in posts that you downloaded a game and want help with it.. expect the catch the attention of the staf.. who will likely edit or delete your post.. then suspend your posting privs.. then have have you banned.

what? no its not, its illegal if you commit PIRACY using bit torrent, what if he is downloading dvd2xbox? that is distributed under the GNU public license and its free and open to anyone to distribute. as long as you dont download games, music, movies, ect. stuff thats copyrighted, its not illegal (although i would recomend using the "usual places" to get xbox apps, much more reliable)

Sorry. I clarified my post. I left out the first half of the first sentence.

DVD2Xbox isn't quite legal either... sure you can go to sourceforge and get the uncompiled source codes which can be distrubuted to the public, but once it has been compiled using a non-licensed XDK compiler it becomes a rogue app. Otherwise you wouldn't have to tell people you can get it at the "usual places". Until someone creates an opensource Xbox compiler all apps created by third party are illegal. So there really is nothing for the Xbox he can get legally off BT.
Or am I wrong?

Plus just using the words used in the topic of the thread, I think gives all the MODS higher blood pressure. grr.gif
