    Anyone know of a great guide on softmodding an XBOX 360 possible free if not thats ok as long as it gets the job done I dont really care. I'm new to the whole modding scene and I want to mod every console I have. I've just modded my wii and that went well. I've read about most of what I've got to do but I cant find a foolproof easy to follow guide. I just want to make sure everything goes smooth no worries.

    First we do have a dedicated xbox section that is quite active- http://gbatemp.net/index.php?showforum=163

    http://gbatemp.net/t264327-freeboot-0-40-d...t&p=3287463 has what is available.

    Strictly speaking there is no straight up softmod like the original xbox, wii or PSP. Generally though most people flash the DVD drive- normally it is very simple but the guides have to be of a certain complexity level so as to enable you to pull things back if they start going wrong.

    The simple method is

    DVD drives/360s have their own keys per drive, you can dump them from the drive though.

    1) Dump keys/original firmware
    2) Use said dump to make a hacked firmware
    3) Flash new hacked firmware to the DVD drive.

    2) and 3) are simple enough but MS tend not to make dumping keys an easy task (there are several types of DVD drive which each have their quirks in key dumping) which is where the guides come in.

    Still http://www.jungleflasher.net/downloads.html covers it all quite nicely.
