  • XBOX Modding

    I have a couple of xboxes handy and was looking to Mod them myself. I have done a bit of research and does anyone know what the best dashboard etc is to use (EvoX, XBMC etc). Also a good supplier for chips?

    Also does anyone know about the Slayer installer program?

    XBMC is the bomb.

    Slayers is piece of cake, once you have the chip installed, throw in the disc, press a few buttons, away you go.

      I softmodded one last week using NDure. Piece of piss really.

      I like Avalaunch as a dash which you then have XMBC as a menu item.

        softmod using NDure or Auto Installer Deluxe with a copy of Splinter Cell and Memory Unit or modified USB Key. Both work well enough.

        NDures fallback to evox/unleashx (if your dash install goes tits up) is great but when using the PAL SC mod you need to copy two lots of files over to the xbox, this is a pain.

        AID has alot of options. I have not tried all but, it is only one file copy when using the SC version. This is great because i can just keep that on my memcard unit now. It installs evox or unleashx. Other software is installed by an accompaning dvd. I've only used AIO for 2 xboxes so far but am happy with it.

        Avalaunch is a brilliant dash when partnered up with the windows software QWIX. Wont get a faster network install/rip of games with anything else.

        For a dash, XBMC or UnleashX for me. preferably XBMC, it really covers anythig the average users could possibly want to do with a xbox.

          For the sake of a $20 chip, don't bother with the hassle and fragility of a softmod.

          Go hard or go home!

          Too easily stuffed up, and then you need a modchip anyway to get the thing running.

            softmod to tsop flash is also an option on models which support it. Always forget that one, my first console (a 1.1) was done this way many years ago and has never missed a beat.

              Agreed IF your any good with a soldering iron. Since I solder like a goddamn gorilla, I steer clear of mod-ships =( Gimme a PC or software and no problem so the choice for me is obvious.

                Cheers for the replies guys..

                I am not too bad with a soldering iron so i will attempt to install a chip. Found a place in Sydney where they sell DUO 2 Lites which appear to be pretty good quality judging from the stuff i have read on the net.

                As for the Software what is the best place to get each package? I have looked at a few sites and can not seem to find anything accessible.

                I have seen a few programs on torrents but have never used them before but my main concern is bandwidth. I am only on a 3GB plan (sad i know but it is wireless!!)

                Does anyone have this stuff on disc?

                Cheers

                    Probably use Slayers Install disc to get XBMC running as the main dash... then update it to the latest build:

                          If you install with slayer, boot the xbox and get into XBMC and shut down. Copy the new version of XBMC across to the xbox, copy the user data folder across and boot the xbox it looks for a Y; (I think thats the letter) drive and you have to do a clean install again.

                            What version of slayers? 2.7 is out and was a bugfix release, this may well have been the case with 2.6. Not sure.
