Xbox soft mod help needed, rep in return :)

Found 3rd Sep 2008
I have formatted the memory card in my xbox, installed Action replay on my pc, changed the VID & PID but when I go to manually change the driver so that my pc will recognize it as a proper memory card to run in AR & not a mass storage device I cant find the proper driver.
Im using vista & guide only shows XP.
Any other help would be much appreciated as this is as far as ive got so far.
Im using a 512mb usb stick & a xbox to usb cable.
Heres the guide ive been using:

xbox-linux.org/wik…WTO

As I say any help will be much appreciated & will leave rep for any help

Your copying the wrong part over, I can't remember which bit you need exactly I think it is the .zip files if I remember rightly

Yes as the Action Replay software changes them to xbox format

Single boot then, Download and install flashfxp on your PC

Configure your Xbox network settings (you need to use DHCP) make sure you connecting either through a router or using a crossover ethernet cable

Then in flashfxp you need to go to connect, enter the IP address the xbox has been assigned, Port 21, password and username are both xbox

That will then let you see the file structure of the xbox all you need to do is copy the XBMC file over to the E: aps folder

Why your at it make sure you back up your eeprom :thumbsup:

Done, thanx :thumbsup:

I used this disc to start me off, torrent is illegal. For softmod xboxes only.

Or

You can do the long way, going through IRC and access the xbins FTP.

Actually it's very illegal, as UnleashX, XBMC etc are compiled with the Microsoft XDK which is only supposed to be distributed with permission from Microsoft, none of them have the permission to use it

Releasing the source code of Unleashx, evox & XBMC is completely legal but when they are compiled as the ones in that torrent are they become illegal
