    I am a total noob with xbox modding. I have a WII that I have modded and I am very familar with that.
    I am looking to get a Xbox 360 and wanted to know if there is a softmod tutorial. I also would like to know if ANY mod, hard or soft is LIVE safe.

    Thanks for wasting your time on me :D

    Well, first off, no mod is live safe. You will always have the chance of getting banned with a modded 360. For hacking it though:

    1: Dvd backups. You flash the LT+2.0 on to your drive (Depending on which kind of drive you have this will differ on how to flash.)

    2: Jtag it. You can get emulators and a custom dashboard and play games through USB, though it's pretty hard to do and requires a old xbox with an old dash. Though their is also the Reset Glitch Hack, the "new" jtag.

    3: Things like the X360Dock are soderless mods chips that can also play xbox games through USB. Though it's not really advised to go on live with it.

    1: LT+ 2.0 is Live safe (with correctly patched backups)
    2: Reset Glitch Hack also has a hacked kernel/dashboard so it's the updated jTAG.
    3: I fully agree with you on that.

    Even with a completely unmodded 360, there is a chance of being banned (profile & console)

    But with correctly patched backups its as safe as it can get yep.

    Like not being on Live for too long, making sure all of your backups are correctly burned and patched. Having the most up to date fw, etc.

    Also @Dino: Well, yeah, if you break the rules online :P. Though that and playing backups on live are two different things :lol:.

    First of all their is no soft-mod per-se, all xbox mods require the opening of you xbox and the connecting you dvd drive to your pc via sata cables. I can't remember much about the reset glitch but I belive it still required the opening of your console.

    Also are you using a slim or phat xbox as both have different hacking methods

    @Nujui Didn't MS banned some consoles by mistake??
    That is a minute possibility of beeing banned.

    Even tho I've played for hours on end on Live with my flashed console ;p, I've never been banned/flagged for anything.

    Yep just patch your backups with ABGX then burn them on a Verbatim DVD DL on 2.4x speed.
    If it is an AP 2.5/26 game repatch them EVERY SINGLE DASHUPDATE!!!!!
    Also never update via Live but always via USB and flash your DVD drive back to stock BEFORE UPDATING.

    Don't use MS points generators and don't do Non-jTAG shit.
    Also never mention that your box is flashed on Live (this may sound paranoid but MS can sift through messages etc)

    Keeping that in mind will prevent you for 99% from being banned.

    OK so if I go out and get a BRAND NEW Xbox 360 this holiday season, best way to mod is LT+ 2.0 an d still be LIVE safe.

    Now I just have to research LT+ 2.0. Any good places to start?
