I currently have an xbox with a modchip running xbmc. I want to build a 2nd xbmc box, so I just got a v1.0 refurb and would like to softmod it. I've read the guides/tuts and feel confident enought to get started, but I just want to make sure the following tutorials are still the "best" ones to follow. I know new info can come up sometimes that might not necessarily get updated in the tutorials.
Apparently I have to install ndure on the stock HDD first to extract the eeprom. Is textbook's pinned tutorial still an accurate/preferred guide?
Once I have my eeprom, is Kingroach's xboxhdm for dummies still a good overview of how to build a new, larger, drive?
The guides are pretty detailed, so thanks in advance to everyone who made the tools and wrote the guides. Just don't want to find out too late that there was info I should have been aware of. Any alternate tutorials I should check out? Any gotchas I should be aware of that might not be reflected in the above tutorials?
