    Just won a brand new xbox 360 . Was wondering if it is possible to softmod it like you can with a wii. Wthout having to take the xbox apart or do any soldering

    thanks

    There may be an exploit soon as I know team jungle and some other people were working on it. When it does come out you will have to open your 360 to flash the drive to play backups.

    Well no, you still have to open up the old 360 to play backups. If you have one of the newer Lite-Ons you still have to solder.

    I can play mine off the HDD... No ModChip. All you need is some common sense, a few diodes and an exploitable X360.

    On regular xboxes you can install games to the internal drive, you still need the original disk in however. On older xboxes with an exploitable dashboard you could jtag them to play backups on an external drive without a disk, run homebrew, emulators and xbla content. I think this exploit was plugged around mid 2008.

    I have now got myself a regular xbox 360 . Which i was told was modded and banned from xbox live . I am not worried about the live ban
    But i have being ripped off because i dont think xbox 360 is even flashed or modded.
    I have tired a backup that i know works on my neighbours xbox and all i get when i insert the disk is this screen

    Congratulations with winning though. [​IMG]

    As the others have said, The Xbox360 Slim can't be flashed YET. There are teams working on it right now though. [​IMG]

    Thank you.

    This isn't the slim xbox that i've won. Put that to one side to give my son for his birthday next month. This is the old style xbox 360 i was told is modded

    You were told it was modded, but the real question is: Is it jtagged or just a flashed DVD drive? If it is a jtag then you can use it to play games of an HDD but if it is the latter of the two then all you can do is play backups.
