    Ok, ill try to make it quick. I got an unmodded box i want to softmod via hotswapping and XboxHDM and Ndure. Kernel is 3944 and dash is 5960. My guide ive been using so far is here

    http://forums.xbox-scene.com/index.php?showtopic=496263

    Ive read some of the other topics similar i just would like to know

    I am mainly using this for emulators and backups

    is there a better guide/method to hotswapping out there?
    should i use any other replacement dash other than ndure?
    if i use this method can i update to unleash or evox or xbmc afterwards?

    thank you for the help, i will wait before i attempt anything.

    1) There are some slightly less complex guides concentrating on "all in one" discs (which normally did not spread very far or were not very good) and such but if that one works for you do it as everything that follows will make more sense.
    If you have not already read it:

    2)/3) Softmodded xboxes work like this
    normal bios loaded
    new bios loaded via softmod exploit (chips go straight to this stage)
    new dashboard is loaded via softmod bios. This is your xbmc, exox, avalaunch...... and you are free to choose whichever one you like (points to t3ch xbmc) or even load one from another (some people like a more minimal/dev oriented one like evox most of the time but the occasional xbmc session).
    ndure is merely the name of the method http://xguides.xbox-scene.com/tikiwiki/tik...ure+XBE+Exploit

    Also autoinstaller deluxe: get it as it will make your life that much easier once you get it hacked in the first place.

    No , the hdd has to be the primary master. No adapters , usb stuff won't even work once xboxhdm has started up.
