Looking for XBMC related stuff - Or someone to mod my box :)

9y, 7m agoPosted 9 years, 7 months agoFeedback:0 Positive/0 Neutral/0 Negative
Basically, i'm looking to give someone/some store my xbox and pay them to have it come back running xbmc. I have read about it but it just seems like too much stuff to do and too many risks for an amateur like me - i'll just stick to PC's thanks lol. Either this option or just lookin to buy a premodded xbox with xbmc. So, any ideas or offers on where i could get this done or do you know of anyone selling what i'm after?

P.s. I'm in the South Yorkshire area near sheffield so would prefer to work with someone local as i would guess with the weight of the xbox would make postage prices ridiculous.

Cheers

I think you have to name a price sara, if you want it to sell
#8
Thanks for the offer sara, how much are you looking to get for it? (i'm thinking that it might be a bit more than i'm looking to pay with the 120GB HDD). But as i sai, let me know a price and i'll get back to you :)

Anyone else?

Hi mate,

Modding the xbox in itself isn't that hard mate...

You need a little patience, good timing and a long IDE cable :)

I've done 2 now... first took me well over an hour, due to getting the timing right.

Second took me just 15-20 minutes :)

If I had a DVD writer, I'd burn you off a copy of the disc I made... effectively wipes your XBOX back to factory and applies the softmod + installs XBMC and a few other neat utils :D

Just SoftMod your Xbox in 10 mins yourself using this easy guide here :

http://www.techfreaks.org/articles/modxbox.shtml :thumbsup:

Only problem with that is you need an Action Replay memory card... the way I did mine was 100% free, plus pre-installs XBMC and still lets you boot into the original Microsoft mode (for xbox live).

BUT... it does involve opening the case up for the hot-swap method
#18
Sara... you may get around £75 for yours mate....

BUT... for legal reasons I would suggest deleting the games off the drive first before selling ;)
#19
oh right ok then, may i mention that mines comes with that action replay memory card :D thanks
