Softmod Vs Hardmod Differences?
Posted 06 April 2005 - 07:12 AM
And with a softmod you can go on xbox live right?

You can only use live w/ certain precautions on a softmod.
Other than that you can do everything else a modchip can w/ a softmod.

xboxhdm won't do anything to make a softmod be able to boot an unlocked HD.

I disagree with that one. You can still go on LIVE providing you uninstall the softmod (which is not hard if you get one of those UXE installers) first and afterwards re-install the softmod. I know it's a pain that's why chips are good in that sense because you just turn the chip off. And one more thing always use the same hdd you used when you registered on xbox live.

I use a softmod becuase I cant get highspeed (Hence no Live) and I (For reasons that do not concern you) Can't buy stuff online >.>
Also, I live in Vernon Florida.....I dare you to try and buy a modchip here XD (This is also why.
Dont Steriotype soft modders -.-
thats like trying to steriotype ppl who play gamecube or people who hard mod.
You just cant do it (accurately anyway).

Just goes to show you don't know a lot about softmods.

well you can boot from a locked drive....and xboxhdm locks the drive....so like i said, it's a workaround but still a bit of a hassle. (assuming of course the softmodder is intelligent enough to backup their eeprom)
you're an idiot
there are some good reasons to use a chip instead of a softmod....but there are also a lot of reasons to softmod over chip. one being updates, my mod is currently the newet of everything. also, i've never heard of anyone breaking their motherboard while installing a softmod. not to mention the fact that i can install a softmod in...about 2 minutes (so it's not really 10x harder). last but not least, i'm better with software than i am with soldering...hence softmodding is more up my alley (there are certainly people out there that can solder anything but don't know shit about software...for them installing a chip is probably a better call).
as far as installing goes...i installed a switch to split the TSOP and then flashed my V1.0 (so it's not like i'm not competent enough to install a chip), and as far as money goes...i could certainly buy a chip. the fact still remains, i don't want/need one. why would i?
in summary....people have different preferences. if you want a mod chip, by all means install one. if you want to TSOP flash, go ahead and have fun. if you want to softmod, that's great too. calling a group lazy cheap or stupid for doing what they're best at is completely uncalled for.

While the C drive will look stock when nkpatcher loads, nkpatcher loads because the BIOS in memory has been patched to allow unsigned content to be run. Xbox Live will see that the BIOS has been modified, and you'll be banned.
