It's a good idea to sit down and write out just what it is you want to do with this mod. After that, do some forum reading, visit respective sites, and research how possible it will be for you to achieve your goals. Of a lot of the things I wanted to do, some had to be cut, and others evolved over time. Expect your system to change. I started with Evox (was a newb and it was the only thing I had heard of) and went to UnleashX and finally to UIX (can be tough to set up). If you're planning to run your box as a simple media center, XBMC is probably the best choice. If your box isn't softmodded already and you have the knowhow, I'd recommend formatting a 100mb+ USB stick in the Xbox and then putting together an xbmc softmod package yourself. But in the end, it's probably safest to softmod normally, then install XBMC over that. Knowing what version your Xbox is is also important as you may be able to TSOP flash it. Another alternative is buying a modchip. There are plenty of ways of carring out the project, you just need to figure out what is best for you.
