    There are several threads around here but 3 things
    Emulators/software. Search for something called auto installer deluxe aka AID. It is a collection of the all the best software for the xbox. Xbox homebrew software was/is usually made with the official SDK so it can not be distributed in binary form.

    Mod method. Modchip and softmod.
    Modchip. No real advantages over a softmod at this stage.

    Softmod. Two main methods.
    Gamesave method.
    Here you get one of three games and use a bug with the saves to get things started.

    Hotswap method.
    You get the hard drive out of the xbox (while it is running, hence hotswap). Boot with a certain version of linux on a PC and then copy stuff across.

    Threads around here (there are many more but those should do or at least have links to place with more info):

    http://gbatemp.net/index.php?showtopic=92919
    http://gbatemp.net/index.php?showtopic=92067
    There are many around here with fairly in depth knowledge so if you have a more specific question then go for it.

    53 emulators? That's a lot of damn work. Read the description on the vids. That guy had to rename 1000s of roms.

    Damn Xbox file name restrictions.

    But anyway, nice work.

    It isn't necessary to manually rename the roms. A tool such as Good GUI can do it for you, and at the same time organise the roms into US/EUR/JP etc folders.

    I went through this process myself recently, takes about a days work to get full rom sets for every xbox emulator sorted, named, zipped, and organised.
