Found 24th Jan 2008
i have recently acquired an xbox, by scrounging from a friend, ive been reading a little bit about XBMC and it sounds interesting, would love to have a go of soft modding my xbox and installing it, so i was wondering if anybody here had the required kit to do it. my understanding is i need a specific game (from a list of 4 or something) and an action replay memory card.

Fairly simple to do, but I would like to keep my kit You don't need an action replay memory card, you could use a USB flash drive, and buy (or make) an xbox to female usb cable :thumbsup:

You will also require one of these games: Meccahsult,Splintercell 1, or 007 Agent Under Fire

Some say that the "classics" version of these games won't work and some say it does work, but if you don't already have any of them then you'd probably be safer sticking to a normal version :thumbsup:

how do i make an xbox to female usb cable, or where would i get one?

You should go to ]http//ww…com ther is loads of tutorials on how to softmod an xbox.

Pleny of tutorials on xbox-scene, you can probably buy a cable from ebay which is by far easiest, unless you have a broken controller or something about..

Yep, thats the one. But if you can do it the action replay way cheaper then that might be better for you, it worked out cheaper for me to do it this way though :thumbsup:

well the action replay looks to be more expensive to me. was hoping some kind hearted person would just borrow me the kit for a bit

Tough I'm about 80 miles away from mine and won't be seeing it for weeks, so no luck there.

Yes the cheapest way to do it should be usb memory stick(which you probably already have) + one of the games previously mentioned + that cable + some free software from the internet. And thats it :santa:

you dont get nothing if you dont ask, ill leave it a bit see if someone want to lend/borrow (do i borrow from and lend to or the other way round?) one to me and if not ill grab one of those cables and keep an eye out for the games.

ive only read about soft modding it with the action replay card, is it a similar process to do it with the usb cable/stick?

Exactly the same method I think, just using a USB stick to transfer the file instead of a memory card :thumbsup:
