I want to soft mod my xbox with XBMC & was hoping someone would lend, swap or sell me
their stuff they have from doing theres. I have a 2gb maxell usb stick, r2 xfiles season 1, 2, 3 dvd box sets, 8 dvd wildlife set not in original case, san andreas & need for speed carbon & some other ps2 games, clerks2, snoop dog cd & dvd set, j & silent bob strike back, anacondos hunt for the blood orchid, welcome to collinwood, the island, bill & ted both films, harold & kumar get the munchies (wrong case), human traffic, king of the cage & a few other dvd's, unlocked nokia 7210, case logic leather psp case.
Obviously not everything but I have other bits I would be willing to swap.

It is possible to do it for free. I did in November 2006 using the info on this forum. The only thing you need is a PC with IDE HDD connection (not SATA) and a CD writer:

There is always a risk when hot-swapping the drives but it worked fine for me any many others. I also replaced the Xbox HDD straight afterwards with a 250Gb one.

Damn you're right, I forgot about the £1 I spent on those (Poundland/Poundstretcher or similar) - it was >18 months ago.

My desktop is flame grilled so using my new laptop, hoping I could do a nice easy splinter cell & memory card jobby :)
Thanx 4 the advice though deanc1966
#5
I bought one the other day from the for sale for trade forum, you could try there. i haven't got round to modding mine yet though, or else i could lend you mine once i've modded my xbox. Do you know where i can get the files from without much hassle (ive got agent under fire), also does anybody have the latest XBMC files so i dont have to do the temporary password thingy
#6
Which files do you need for the softmod ? Don't PM me, post them in here and if I still have them then I'll up them since I'm in a good mood. ;-)

As for XBMC, it shouldn't be too difficult to find, I believe there's one torrent tracker which specializes in only that one util or you could try xbins.
#7
I need the save files for 007 agent under fire, i have the action replay memory card
#9
cheers boss, rep left
#10
No worries, I've never actually used that one because I have Splinter Cell and AUF, but it should work fine. :)
#11
Btw StGeorge, I have a Splinter Cell that you could buy from me for this if you want. :)
#12
next question what the hell do i do with all these files? i thought there was just two files you needed to copy from your computer to the memory card then to the xbox? im confuzzled!
#13
Yes that is correct

Copy files to card
Card files to XHDD
Boot DVD
Load Save Game
Use Installer.
#14
so i just copy the zipped file onto the memory car etc. ???

few sites i used when putting a 250Gb HDD in my old xbox (not 360)

you can also get it ruunning in HD but you need the component cable, there are quite a few NTSC games that run in 720P for the xbox1

when you've done it a few times you might be able to do this :)

I'm not really sure if you should be doing this tbh, it can be dangerous

The zip file is extracted, it's containing save files are put in the correct directory on the memory card, I can't remember what the directory was called though from the top of my head.

How do I do it? - 007 Agent Under Fire Install
----------------------------------------------

1. Copy the contents of SID.007.AUF.v2.0.Xbox-Hq to your memory device. The best ways are
to use a modded Xbox to do it (by unzipping the file and copying the contents to
E:\) and then transfering to your memory card, or use a Mega X-Key or
Action Replay to dump the ZIP files on to.

2. Make sure the gamesave is on your unmodded Xbox, then turn it off.

3. Insert 007 AUF and turn your Xbox on. When you're at the main menu of the game,
select "Load Mission" and then highlight "Xbox HDD". Tress A to boot the Installer.

4. Once the Installer has boot, I strongly suggest to make a backup of your C Drive.
Use the "Create C Backup" option to backup your C drive. To back up the Eeprom you'll
need to use the Evolution X dashboard, which you will have to install yourself after
the softmod is done. The Eeprom backup is stored at C:\Backup (this can't be changed
unfortunately) so please remember this.

5. Install the Softmod. Please note this deletes the MS Dash from C Drive, hence why you
have been told to use the backup feature.

6. Install what dashboard you wish to use. Unfortunately due to lack of space I can only
put Evolution X and UnleashX in this package, I hope that is good enough.

7. Shut down your Xbox, then restart it and remove the disc. If this has worked like it
should, you should see your choice of dashboard (either EvoX or UnleashX). Please note
if you boot your Xbox and leave the DVD Tray open it will take you back to the menu
where you installed your Softmod.

8. If you want to put the MS Dashboard back on your Xbox, you'll need to put MS Dash 5960
on your Xbox. The easiest way to do this (once the box is softmodded) is to use my
Auto-Installer Deluxe to delete the files from C Drive and install the latest MS Dash.
Note: when this is done you'll have to repeat steps 3 to 7.

9. Restart your Xbox with the DVD tray open to bring up the Softmod menu. Run the "Patch
MS 5960" now, and it will put the MS Dash back on C Drive, and patch it so your
Dashboards can now use it. Note, the MS Dashboard will be called msdash.xbe now, since
the Xbox still needs the hacked xboxdash.xbe in order to boot the softmod. Once you've
selected this option, it will run through some tasks, then boot PPF-XBOX to do the rest.
After PPF-XBOX has done it's work it will restart your Xbox.

10. Now is the time to make a backup of your modded C drive. This comes handy just in case
a game tries to update your dashboard. If this ever happens, just use the "Restore
Mod Backup". If you ever want to remove the Softmod (mainly for Xbox Live purposes)
you can restore your backup of C Drive by using the "Restore C Backup" option
in the Softmod menu.

does the component cable allow you to stream HD content from a pc through the xbox to a hdtv?
#19
Actually I think with the RAM upgrade, an xb1 could run 720p WMV-VC1 files.
#20
It shouldn't need the cpu upgrade for that, and I think if I remember correctly, somebody did a solderless adaptor for the RAM upgrade.

I was thinking of doing it on mine at one point so that it would play Goldeneye but I never really bothered in the end.
#21
This is off topic (sorry) but now that XBMC has been ported to Linux has anyone tried loading it onto the PS3?
#22
You could just use VLC on the PS3.

Hardly. 10 a penny mate.

You would think but actually a lot of places like Game and CEX have the original case on the shelves but the disc they give you is the Second edition, I know because I learned that the hard way.

What do you mean by second edition? Chaos Theory and Pandora Tomorrow won't softmod an xbox but the original release and the 2 disk classics re-release version will:thumbsup:

If i send someone a Xbox memory card could they copy the necessary files to it with their action replay (i would pay for return postage of course)?
Cheers,

The 2 Disc classics version of SC will not work with the Softmod exploit, it was patched to fix the hole.
#36
it says not all required resouces can be loaded

this is usually caused by lack of HD space on E:\ or X:\

you can try ftping and correct the problem

any suggestions?

#39
You've copied both files over? If so then I wouldn't know. Only ever used SC:thinking:

If it is a disk space problem though, go through MS Dash to the music section and make sure its not full of CD rips.....

@DCX, I prefer S4. Tried 5 but couldn't see any improvement tbh.
#40
yep both files over, no music on the hdd it says 50000+ blocks available

maybe its time for bed and to try tomorrow
