Hey everyone I haven't touched the xbox 1 in a few years and am about to pick a new one up. I plan on installing XBMC and installing it in a satellite receiver box and then sending all my backed up dvds to it over ethernet to store and watch them. I want to install at least a 500GB hdd, but will most likely go with the 750GB (if that is supported yet). I was wondering what is the easiest/best way to mod it now a days? My original xbox's I installed an xecuter 3 in all of them. All I really need to be able to do is install XBMC, upgrade hdd 500GB or larger, doesn't need dvd drive plugged in, and can receive file transfers over ethernet.

Modchip is the easiest method IMO. Some quick soldering and you'll never have to worry about screwing anything up. AFAIK the softmods can still be nuked by oh say having the dashboard disappear one day or the entire harddrive going belly up?

Someone feel free to correct me on those, I just really like soldering. NDure is a pretty damn good installer though, props for them if you can decide on a method to get the thing soft modded (hot-swap, exploit).

Well, if you don't want to buy a mod-chip then a TSOP flash would be a good choice. It's like having a modchip but it's FREE. It's also alot easier to upgrade the hdd in a tsop modded box than a softmodded one.

Ok awesome, also where can you by modchips nowadays? I went to all the old places I used to get mine at and all of them are either only selling 360 stuff or shut down.

Do you happen to know where a good tsop tutorial is? Thanks

Well here's a collection of tutorials. If you want to go the route of a modchip than you can get something cheap like a DuoX2. They're sold here. I can confirm that they are good, reliable chips.

This requirements rules out softmods. You are left with tsop flash or modchip.
