Total Noob, Needing Info
Posted 17 October 2007 - 12:19 PM
I've read a ton of these tutorials and whatnot, but I'm still not quite getting it and most of the examples given are for all these different chips or something and as I'm a complete novice as it is it's all Greek to me.
So I'm looking to mod my xbox using this Hyper X Modchip just because it's cheap and doesn't require me to solder stuff. I'm not really opposed to soldering, but if I can avoid it, all the better. I haven't ordered the chip yet because I want to understand what I'm doing at least a little bit beforehand so I don't waste the money. I have a v1.0 console, if that helps any.
So I get how to open the case, remove all the stuff and install the chip. The problem I start to get to is flashing a bios and the putting on a dashboard. If anyone could point me to a tutorial for flashing a bios and loading a dashboard when dealing with a Hyper X chip and what to do there, that would be great. Or if there's a simplified way of telling me what to do, that'd be great.

Solderless chips are great if you don't plan on moving the Xbox much. If you are looking for a simple solution, try a softmod with Krazie's Ndure 1.1.1.
Now for the chip, where you order it from should have a link for a tutorial on flashing the BIOS. After that, put in the new HD and use Slayer's to format it. It will put the dashboard on there too.

For Slayers do I find that in the xbins channel as well? And will it boot up after I install the chip and flash the bios? Basically, is it pretty much easy-mode? haha
