I have been reading for a few hours on these boards about modding my xbox. I am very inexperienced with soldering, so I was going to send my xbox to systemmods.com and have them install my xecuter 2.1 lite chip. Here is where my confusion begins, once they ship my box back to me, i have to flash the bios? That doesn't seem too confusing thanks to the sites tutorials. I currently own an NEC ND-1300A DVD-RW drive. It is capable of burning both - and + formats. Seeing that I have a dvdrw drive already, I think I would rather go this route rather then the hard drive route. So if i correctly burned an xbox game image onto a dvdr, would it just boot up and work or do i have to have one of those samsung drives? I wouldn't attempt playing on xbox live with a burned game, but with that chip will i still have the capability of playing regular xbox games and still play on xbox live without getting banned? Thanks in advance for your help and time.
