Xbox 1 Backup games

Is there a way to "mod" the original xbox so you can play games from disc as ive heard/seen people talk about softmodding although is that just to put backup games on to a hard drive?
thanks for any help

My softmodded one will play from a disc

Havent got around to trying it yet, looks complicated but if you want to try it this site tells you all you need to know. People and places do it for you but it's knowing who and where I suppose.

Yes, you can install a chip or you can softmode it. It allows you to play "back up" games. Games that you own and keep good, copy them, and use that one so that the good ones don't get scratched :whistling: I have 3 modded consoles, and one chipped one. I will sell you one if you're stuck.

I have an xbox just wondering wether softmodding allows backups not just chips as chips are more complicated im thinking

Yes

Although i don't use it for that, i only use it with XBMC for streaming from my PC.

^^ Yes Alex, it will, but you only have an 8GB or 10GB installed Hard Drive. So you will only be able to "back up" one game, 2 at the most...
You will need to open up the xbox and install a bigger Hard Drive mate.

Ok cheers for youre help, thats what i didnt really want to do install another hard drive thats why i was wanting to burn them to disks then play them on the xbox after softmodding it is this not an option?

Playing backups from disc is perfectly fine Alex. Thats what I do. I cant be bothered messing about installing a hard drive so I just burn discs.

you could download the back up games, to ya pc, then FTP (file transfer protocol) them to the HD of the xbox

then you not gotta waste no money on discs

need any help with the mod, just holler,

what exactly do you need, ive seen people selling 'kits' on here, do you have one for sale or lend?
cheers for everyones help :thumbsup:

Splinter Cell 1, a memory card and some save game files. Oh and a copy of XBMC ;-)

Just to point out that not ALL games work on a softmodded console. But as they're mostly NTSC it's not really a problem.

i sold my kit but the links for the kits are below

usb to xbox cable (£5 on ebay)
the "hacked" games for the original splinter cell game ]here
the original splinter cell game £3 ish on ebay

you will need a usb pen stick and you will need to change the firmware to work on the xbox, the program is ]here

the hardest part is the usb memory card hack, i have some spare memory sticks here, i will try to see if they are hackable, if they are, i will send you one

if you need instructions, follow my tutorial [URL="www.console-modder.co.uk"]here[/URL] its not been updated in ages though :roll:
