I'm trying to start a website that will have modchip installation services. I know that the bioses aren't legal, except for the cromwell flashbios. But are all the apps and dashboard legal or illegal?

I'm wondering if it would be legal to pre-load a modded xbox with different dashboards, media players, and rom emulator apps.

thanks

The customer would flash their own bios to the chip, but does that mean that I can't put the apps on the xbox?

Well last I checked many of the apps are coded using the XBox Dev Kit and consitered abit on the less than legal since it's compiled with MS's coprited code in the libraries. It's a real gray area on many of the applications, dashes and emulators because of this. Just take a look on the XS Software Page and you'll see what apps use the XDK.
Anything made with the OpenXDK should be ok and the linux is all clean as well.

Ok, I'll just stick to modchip installation and let them get their own apps.


Thanks.

That's a new one on me.

Trying to circumvent NOT breaking the law.
