This guide is intended to help complete beginners to understand soft-mods and how to install them successfully. I am not an expert but I have one chipped XBOX and one soft-modded and this guide documents what I needed to do in order to perform a soft-mod.

Every once in a while a friend asks me to mod their Xbox (I soft-modded mine about a year and a half ago, as I recall), so this guide should serve as a good refresher and serves very well as a beginner’s howto.

Once you’ve done the soft mod, you’ll probably also want to load up XBMC and make your Xbox into a multimedia center. 🙂
