I need advice. -- It's easily been over 10 years since I modded my Xbox, and I don't remember what I did to make it happen. I know that I installed a solderless Xecuter 2.6 and that my console is either a v1.0 or a v1.1. And, it also has a Thompson drive, if that matters. I just started it up and everything seems to be working fine. I don't know which Bios it has, it just has it listed as "unknown". I haven't messed with it since 2006 (at the latest) so I'm sure everything's outdated. I tried to find any info that I thought might be important but all I could really get was my system info: K:1.00.5022.01 D:1.00.5960.01 I remember that I had compatibility issues with some games, and some wouldn't even install. I recall old forum posters saying that certain drives wouldn't always rip a game fully/correctly. I don't know if any of that is true or not. What I'm here to ask is, should I just update my current configuration, or would it be worth it to softmod? I know that in some cases of other consoles, that softmods have surpassed hardmods in terms of features, compatibility, and usability. If softmodding is recommended, would it be safe to softmod with the hardmod already installed?
