so here i am... i'd say a year after descovering you could mod an xbox with out sodering anything or even opening up the box for that matter. its like a dream come true for me & now im finally prepared to take the plung! i've purchased everything i need (hopefully).
my list of stuff:
xbox version 1.0 or 1.1 (mfg. date 12-01-2001) refurbished
mechassault (hoping its the right version) EDIT* lazer etched #MS02301L L1 01
splinter cell (hopeing its the right version) EDIT* lazer etched #US01209A-L1
007 agent underfire (hopeing its the right version) EDIT* lazer etched #EA01301AL1
action replay 8mb w/ usb docker station
my aim is to use the system to play backed up games on dvd media (is there a certain type you can use or do all blank dvd's work on xbox?). along with emulators of my favorite old games. and finally to unlock the dvd play back option since mister gates so uncooly decided i needed to pay him 30 bucks more to watch my dvd on the thing...
i've read up on all the tut's. the one i find clearist is actually the one to unlock it for linux although its not exactly the same i understand that the first few steps are.
what i need to know is what other stuff i need what are the newist versions and do they have web sites i can look at to see.
im still not exactly sure what software im gonna need to install onto the xbox at this point (i.e. what kinda dash board, dvd playback thingy, ect.) to do all the things i want to do on it. i'd like the best and newist stuff i can use.
so please feel free to leave comments and helpful info. ty ppl!
