    Hi, I am probably going to buy an original xbox (cuz it's only $6.99 and I want to play sone original xbox games) and I was wondoering what the easiest way to softmod it to play backups is. I did google, but there are so many different methods I don't know what to choose?

    I know this is mainly a nintendo fourum, but I thought I would try asking here

    EDIT: oops just noticed this thread, sorry

    The easiest way I found was the hotswap method I did in 5 min excluding all the reading, if I can remember correctly I followed this tutorial. Easiest way to unlock your xbox hard drive is to unplug your DVD drive and wait for an error 21 that's when you disconnect the IDE that is connected to your xbox and connect it to your comp, and also NEVER CONNECT YOUR COMP'S POWER SUPPLY TO YOUR XBOX'S HARD DRIVE ONLY USE THE POWER FROM YOUR XBOX
