First of all i would like to thank everybody (and in particular Idots) who's done such a great job on providing the info and tools for succesfully softmodding any version of an xbox! You guys rule big time! :D
I succesfully modded my brand new PAL 1.6 (b?) xbox by following an UXE tutorial.
Now I'm planning to install a 120Gb HD (Hitachi Deskstar). I've read about xboxhdm and I'm pretty sure I can pull it off, but I do have a few questions...
- as far as I know xboxhdm uses UDE (any version) and UDE2 does not work on a PAL box... can I just replace the files in the iso with the ones that are currently on my existing xbox (I backup them regularly to my pc) before burning the cd? Those are bound to work for sure since they do now B)
- does xboxhdm support building a new hd trough usb? I have an external usb hd rack, and it would be easier if I could use that in stead of my primary IDE controller so I wouldn't need to open up my PC... erh disconnect it from the cable hell that's probably has grown it's own hemisphere behind my desk
Following question has got nothing to do with hd install, but I'm just curious:
- as I understand, a softmod 'happens' everytime you boot your hd, and If you restore it to it's original content, you 'unmod' the xbox again... or am wrong about this? And why am I able to boot my xbox from a CDR then?
A big thank you in advance!
