Krayzie 1.1.1 is newbie-proof - just select basic install - UnleashX dashboard. SID requires you to read and understand the manual, and all of the softmod options.
Also, there is no such thing as SID. There are SID 1, SID 2, SID 3, SID 4, SID5, and lots of point releases, all with different options......
This board is littered with posts from people who used SID, didn't read and understand the manual, then had their softmod overwritten by a game or by accidentally deleting the wrong file.
Your choice, but here's a hint - if you do decide to use SID use the latest version, and make sure you select an option that has shadow C (SID calls it virtual C), and make sure you take a backup copy of your eeprom.
I just bought the Xbox today so I can play some old games that you cant play on the 360 and to mod it. Before I ordered it I had be researching about softmods for a while and I came to the conclusion that SID 5.11 would be the best for me. I don't understand what you mean by "overwritten by a game", It was my understanding that the SID would install onto the hard drive and not have any interference with saved games and would be there untill you have uninstalled it. I didn't know that it could be overwritten by a game.
