I've been looking to mod my xbox for some time now, but only after having bought my x360 have I finally decided to do it. I will *only* be using this box for playing video files (divx, xvid, etc) and maybe music. If I want to play games I'll just use my 360. I'd also want to put in a larger HDD. I have a 250gb HD that I'd want to load up with my videos so I'm not fiddling around with a ton of different discs or having to burn a new disc anytime I want to watch something. I know I want to get XBMC for the stuff, though. I know that much
I've read a ton of these tutorials and whatnot, but I'm still not quite getting it and most of the examples given are for all these different chips or something and as I'm a complete novice as it is it's all Greek to me.
So I'm looking to mod my xbox using this Hyper X Modchip just because it's cheap and doesn't require me to solder stuff. I'm not really opposed to soldering, but if I can avoid it, all the better. I haven't ordered the chip yet because I want to understand what I'm doing at least a little bit beforehand so I don't waste the money. I have a v1.0 console, if that helps any.
So I get how to open the case, remove all the stuff and install the chip. The problem I start to get to is flashing a bios and the putting on a dashboard. If anyone could point me to a tutorial for flashing a bios and loading a dashboard when dealing with a Hyper X chip and what to do there, that would be great. Or if there's a simplified way of telling me what to do, that'd be great.
