    Hi, I recently got all the stuff I need to soft mod my Xbox, except I'm still waiting for the usb flash drive to get here. I have an old 128mb micro SD card that is gathering dust, so I was wondering if it's possible to put that sucker in my phone and hook it up to my Xbox to install the files? I have read that using a music player could result in a brick, so I'd rather see if anyone else knows before I try to.

    No, won't work. You need to either make a USB adapter or order one.

    Another option is TSOP Flashing or Hot swapping.

    This is all services I offer as well.

    I mentioned hotswap to him already.

    You need a memory card bud or hotswap or tsop flash as I've already stated.

    That's not an option either because I have a laptop. I just need something to inject the files on, and I thought maybe I could hook my phone up to the Xbox, format the card, plug it into the PC, copy the files, and transfer them to the Xbox.

    depends, most phones use MTP as their usb protocol, so that wouldnt work, you need something that is accessed as mass storage, although even if your phone does use mass storage protocols then the phone may refuse to function with the SD once its formatted to XFAT

    basically, find a cheap SD card reader or a crappy flash drive

    You should be able to take the cable I linked you to and use it on your Xbox with a normal USB Drive. Just hook it up, xbox should detect it and format it.
