I am new to xbox modding and obviously to this forum. I have been looking into a few mod chips, but was wondering if anyone had any suggestions on which mod chip i should go with. I am pretty much just looking to put games on a new HDD, and maybe keep some types of media on my xbox also. I was gonna go with a solderless chip, but wasnt sure which one would be the best to meet my needs. If i could get some suggestinos on which chip would meet my needs the best, it would be appreciated.
for solderless solutions there are several options. for modchip go with any solderless chip you want... cus basically all it does is loading an hacked bios...
but to warn you do NOT go with the spider chip altough its cheap, its fragile and easy to screw up...
if you want something solderless, free, and without opening your xbox to install it (if your upgrading your hdd you will need to open it anyway...)
then go with softmodding your xbox... it will do everything you mentioned above.
problems for softmodding is: it may take longer time than an chip install, risk for screwing up is a little bit bigger... but other than that its pretty easy (remember to read the tutorials
hope im not to confusing...
