hi, iv just joined this site and need some advice, iv got a little confused on this modding xbox thing lol, iv read all over the internet and still a bit confused so here it is..
I got given and xbox original a few weeks ago and want to softmod it, with reading over the internet i found i needed a few stuff so i bought the 007 agents under fire original game and a usb to xbox lead so i tried using a pen drive i had but unfortunately it wasnt compatable i think lol as it didnt show in the action replay on pc..
what i need is a great softmod guide and a usb compatability list so i know what i need to get this done
i have 50,000 blocks so not sure on hdd size in xbox
any help would be great as iv been reading for days lol and havent found a perfect writen guide for me to follow

Not all copies of 007:AUF are exploitable. This post
explains how to tell if yours is.
Don't use Action Replay, use Xplorer360 beta 6. Action Replay requires you to manually add specific USB device drivers, whereas Xplorer360 beta 6 just works.
You have to plug the USB stick into your Xbox first so the Xbox can format it properly. The USB stick has to be smaller than 4GB, and have no complicated formatting (like U3) - smaller, older sticks are more likely to work.
Use the Krayzie 1.1.1 gamesave installer. Select Basic Install - UnleashX dashboard. Make sure you take a backup of your eeprom, and put it somewhere safe.

thanks my game isnt a platinum so it ok to use
i have 2 usb thumb drives
so hope they work on that program you suggested,

You are missing the point. It's not "that program" the memory stick needs to work with, it's the Xbox.
Plug the USB stick in to your Xbox, if the Xbox recognises it and you can copy a gamesave to and from it then you have a working memory stick.
If you need instructions for a simple tool that looks similar to Windows Explorer and copies files onto a memory stick then you should stop now, because it's only going to get more difficult. Why don't you try downloading Xplorer360 beta 6 and running it, instead of asking for a tutorial? You might surprise yourself.

Excellent. Now all you do is unpack the Krayzie 1.1.1 gamesave installer, open the USB stick with Xplorer360 beta 6, and drag and drop the numbered gamesave folder (4541000d for 007:AUF) into the root of the USB stick.
Plug it back into the Xbox, copy the gamesave to the hard drive, run the game. When you get to the load game screen DO NOT select load game but start a new one. Then when you reached the actual game (after the cutscene with the helicopter), hit the start button and select Quit Game. Then go back to the Main Menu, Load Game screen and this time select "Load Game". Load the gamesave, and it should give you the softmod installer screen.

FTP is the easiest way. Alternatively, use UnleashX file manager to copy it to your USB stick, then use Xplorer360 beta 6 to copy it onto your PC.

thanks, is unleashx an application ??
im using the evolution x dashboard
is the xbox wireless compatible ?? as i cant find any network when searching ?
can you use a hdd to transfer emulaters, apps and games to xbox

Unleashx and evox are both applications/dashboards. They both run FTP servers. Do yourself a favor and setup FTP access.
Look on the back of the xbox you'll see it's network jack, there is no wireless.
