Okay, I just bought a new 360 Elite today. I want to be able to burn games and play them. I modded my original Xbox waaaay back when with a modchip, so I'm not completely stupid regarding mods.
I am, however, completely stupid when it comes to modding a 360. I just want to be able to burn games and play them, no installing homebrew apps or running emulators or anything like that. Just the basic bread and butter burning/playing games.
I have a question beforehand though: will I still be able to play on Xbox Live? (atleast with non-burned, original games?) Or can Microsoft tell if you've changed firmware when you go online?
Besides that, I'm looking to figure out what I need to do? How do I get started doing this? I know that it requires flashing the DVD drive's firmware. Is that it? Or does it require modchipping? I'm a noob when it comes to the 360 mods. Thanks in advance for any help!
