    Ive been avoiding this for years but I've had my Xbox one since day one and also a ps4, so my Xbox 360 slim just sits on my table gathering dust. I want to mod it to play backups off a hdd but I'm not committed enough do it myself (also my soldering is shit). So anyone interested? What kind of prices should I expect (before and after shipping costs are included).

    Get an Xkey, if you still want to use Live, otherwise RGH.
    For RGH, I recommend checking out the TX forums.
    Xkey, local adds?

    Sending it to me would cost way to much (US to Europe)

    Yea I know, That's why I made this thread cuz the shipping costs would be killer. I don't want to go online with it anyway, just want to catch up on stuff i missed last gen and maybe collect some achievements. Does Signing in on my gamertag and playing a game to collect achievements (but not actually going on multiplayer, Xlive and any other online features), pose a risk?

    All the local ads on CL are rip off artists. $40 for a cheap R4i and a 2gb micro sd filled with like 30 games are you kidding me?

    If you boot homebrew/Freestyledash with that profile then yes.

    Well, I'd say go for the TX forums.
    Atleast their not ripping people off with ridiculous prices.

    Yep, people are scum.
    But as long as fools don't take 4 minutes to research something, scumbags will continue to exploit them.

    Unfortunately, T-X have just closed their forum. I don't know why, but it's a shame as it contained lots of useful information.

    Lol, nothing to it. Even with bad soldering skills you should attempt this yourself. It'll be ok man. I can help walk you through it if needed.


    Oh yeah, 4 weeks 5 days and still remain unbanned.

    Yeah replacement 360's are so cheap these days, no big deal if you trash your's lol. As for fatal's comment about not being banned, if you RGH and you even connect to Xbox Live its an instant permaban. Just don't connect to live and you'll be fine. Play on some other free services like xlink kai or xbconnect etc if you care about online play at all...

    Xkey is fairly safe to play on Xbox live with...

    No it's not an instant ban. Mine is RGH chipped. It's called a stealth server, learn it. Three people are now using my stealth server and have not been banned either.
    If you go online without the use of a stealth server then sure, you will be banned as soon as you connect. But with stealth server you get a while before you are found.
    Best way to remain un banned is to keep your modded console off of public lobbies and only invite people that won't report you to private lobby. Like on GTA V use of invite only lobby works great. Invite your second console to that lobby and those you trust not to turn you in and you won't have any problems. Also set up your own xbla stealth server because the ones they don't know about are harder to find. (that and really who wants to pay that much money to get on a server to mod?)
    A very large group of people (myself included) hacked an existing xbla stealth server and stole all the files to make your own. we posted the download links in numerous websites. Use your modded console to mod and do it only in private places and you'll be just fine. Use your unmodded console to play online public.
    That's how I have managed to stay online so long. If you use a stealth server and get reported for cheating by other users you will get banned for sure that is why you keep your modded console just for modding and not out in the open. I am still rocking my orginal Key Vault and haven't had any problems so far.
    If you need an edge to beat other online gamers then best advice would be for you to practice and get better at gaming. Because a modded console in public lobby will probably be banned in a matter of a few online sessions.

    And for the guy with bad soldering skills: watch a few youtube videos on soldering chips. And practice on some spare wire and an old usb memory card. Within a few hours you'll have decent soldering skills. Tips: go slow, heat the item to be soldered not the solder itself, pre-solder wires before attaching to board, only use small amounts of solder, use a pick to remove excess solder, use flux on areas you don't want solder to stick, and try not to melt the plastic.

    Shame you didn't live in the uk, I would of done it for you, no probs! 4xCK3i's, and 3 x360USB's and god no how many probes I have been through I have done lets say alot! Actually like fatal says you could do it yourself its very easy with a steady hand but the problem is nowadays its getting the bits to do the job they are few and far between to buy now on the net, the 360 modding tools just are not made in the bundles now so I would suggest try ebay if you want to go down that route :(

    Edit: apart from that anyone in the uk that wanted there 360 modding feel free to pm me. I will also send the bin files by email standard, that some dodgy peeps don't tend to do so you have to send it back to them for a reflash so you can't do it yourself via jungleflasher, gits I say!!!
