    So has anyone come up with a simplified xbox (original, not 360) softmod which doesn't require purchasing anything (specific games/action replay, etc etc)?

    I've been looking around, and as it's been done for Wii & PSP (with an early enough firmware, you can d-load a program, rather than needing GTA or anything), so what about Xbox? (i'd love some XBMC for upstairs.)

    Otherwise, does anyone have the required games/apps needed that they'd be willing to send to me for a short time so i can hack my system?

    Thanks [​IMG]

    With the hotswap method, you need the Torx screwdriver to get it open, and a PC with IDE and an optical drive, but other than that nothing's needed. Once you have a dashboard running, then you can FTP on anything you like, or while you're doing the hotswap method, you can even upgrade the drive to fit more.

    It's worth mentioning though, softmodding the Xbox1 is not exactly simple. It's not difficult, but not simple. It's definitely a good experience though [​IMG]

    Well, THAT all looks quite interesting. Thank you so much for this! I might go for the AR/007 method if money allows at a later date, but this could be a fun undertaking [​IMG]

    If you have a female usb plug and an extra controller you can soldier together your own adapter to use a flash drive to transfer the hacked saves. I did that a while ago and it worked perfectly for me.
