Xbox Pal To Xbox Ntsc/j Hotswap With Softmod
Posted 14 March 2008 - 01:46 AM
I'm in Aus and have a PAL modchipped box. I recently bought a second hand NTSC/J for my stepdad so he can watch DivX in the lounge room. I have performed softmods in the past for my mates and so have Mechassault with the Ndure 'run linux' gamesave ready to go. I bought this NTSC box forgetting that I can't run my version of Mechassault due to region locking duh. I tried the PC Ndure installer but failed miserably. It booted to a black screen but I'm lucky the Ndure disk managed to restore the ShadowC.
So my plan is to:
1. Launch Mechassault on CHIPBOX & launch VBOX to msdash
2. Get to load save screen on CHIPBOX
3. Hot swap hardrives
4. Launch the 'Run Linux'
5. Run through the installer
Anyone got any advice on whether this will work successfully or not?
Is this unnecessary?
Can anyone point me to a guide on manually installing softmod files through FTP?

if so fit it to the ntsc-j console , make a bootable dvd of config magic. boot config magic up then change the region and video output to pal.
or you could get a ntsc-j mechassault disc and do your softmod from that. then install oor run from disc the config magic .
i brought a mechassault disc from ebay singapore a couple of years back with no problems. the site is in english etc
ive used the config magic with a modchip and the softmod way to change the region on ntsc-j machines with no problems. just make sure you use the version 1.6 so you dont get caught out if its a 1.6 motherboard.
the one main advantage to putting the chip on there is you can easily lock a larger harddrive to the motherboard using config magic put all your files on there then remove the modchip. its very straight forward.
what part of aus are you in ?
