I decided to buy an already modded xbox, and I would really appreciate if you tell me if you think it is a good deal. Here is the ad that I found:

I HAVE A MODDED XBOX I WANTED TO SELLL.....NTUHIGNS WRONGG WITH IT....I HAD THE XBOX IT SELF FER LIKE 4 MONTHS NOW....I RECENTLY GOT IT MODED A MONTH AGO...TONS OF FUN.....modd chip can be turned off so you can play xbox live. SO...THE XBOX HAS 80 GIGS....I ALSO PUT ANOTHER CHIP WHERE IT ALOOWWS YOU TO PLAY ANY DVD VCD...BOOTLEG W/E....IF ITS ONA CD...MOST LIKLLEY THE SPECIAL DRIVE I PUT IN WILL READ IT. COMES WITH ONE CONTROLLER, THE XBOX SYTEM(MODDED) , AND THE CABLE CORDS AND ELECTRICAL.

I am offered this unit at $180. This is the first time I buy an xbox not to mention a modded xbox. Please advise me what questions I should ask the seller and what I should look at when I pick it up.

... Jsut my opinion but that sounds phony.. Not only is that dude's grammer and spelling worse than mine (which is about a 6th grade level Lol) --

I ALSO PUT ANOTHER CHIP WHERE IT ALOOWWS YOU TO PLAY ANY DVD VCD...BOOTLEG W/E....IF ITS ONA CD...MOST LIKLLEY THE SPECIAL DRIVE I PUT IN WILL READ IT

-- Garbage unless this dude will provide info on the chip name and the "special drive " he put in it. I think this is a crock, but you've got the money not me.

I wouldn't trust it either. Why not look at the BST forums here. Look at the feedback that people have got from making various deals with other members. Or maybe even a shop that sells premods (System mods/BM Mods). This is what I would do, but as EverestX said, it's your money

I just emailed this guy about the chip and the drive. Here is what he said:

its a evolution chip which is a dvd x which let syou watch any dvd in the world......literally.....the drive name is not availble.....amde specaily by my freind....he used a samsung reader witha maxtor drive capppacity....which alone iws worth 120

Does it make much sense?

this guy doesnt know what he's talking about. there is no such thing as a evox chip.


and when they say "made specially by my freind", they mean "it may or may not work, i dont know"

the name of the drive is always available. you can look on the inside, or just look at the tray.

But the ad says "modd chip can be turned off so you can play xbox live". Do you really think it can be softmodded or tsoped?

Dude it's Bullshit. I can hook you up with a TSOPed box for 100. plus shipping. Or a Chipped box for 150. + shipping. All complete with hook up kits and 1 controller...Actually its much easier to just snag the box your self and load mod it ;-) Its also fun!


Cheers!

softmods can use live via colbooting and a tsop on a 1.0 or 1.1 can have a switch
