    Ok someone just charged a m8 of mine £20 to chip his 360 but what we would like to know is there any way to tell if its chipped or soft moded without opening the box ?

    Also if ot is chipped how can we find out what chip was used

    You cannot softmod a 360.
    The 360 is to secure to have softmods.

    You can have a "modchipped" 360.
    It's either a jTAG (couple of diodes and wires) or a RGH (real chip)

    To see without opening is to hook it up and let it boot.
    If you see a red light coming from the upper part of the case (remove the HDD) then you have a Coolrunner TX, If nothing shows up it's a jTAG.

    Ok we can't see any lights so must be a lead jtag.
    is there a way to tell for sure?
    Again with out opening up the case.

    Plug the 360 in and let it boot.

    With a bit of luck you can see Freestyledash booting.
    If it doesn't boot then grab a copy of XeXMenu and put it in the DVD drive.
    If that loads then you have a modded 360.

    The only sure way to tell what it is is to crack it open and see if there are simple wires or a chip installed.

    Wouldn't it be easier to tell him to boot with the eject button to see if xell/xellous launches?

    Also technically DVD drive flashes in phat 360's are soft mods as you don't actually change the hardware (probes don't count).

    Technically yes they are "softmods"
    But they do require hardware to be hacked like the old MRA hack.

    He already knew that a friend of his was going to chip it so my initial guesses where that he knew that it was going to be a RGH or jTAG.
    Since I didn't posted the dash version I assumed it would be jTAG/RGH.
