New to 360 modding

Postby yakhem » Mon Apr 16, 2018 4:57 pm

Hello,
I'd like to mod my Xbox 360. I don't really know where to start, so I figured the people here would know :D.
I've modded plenty of Xbox originals, PS2, and PSX, but I have no modding experience with the 360. Is there some kind of softmod (like FMCB for PS2) or can I only hardmod it?
My end goal is to be able to run backups off of a hard drive, and install mod menus for games so I can mess with my friends on COD :lol:.
Once again, I have no idea where to start.
Thanks in advance!

Edit: It's the white 360 without HDMI.

Edit 2: It looks like I have the "Xenon" model 360.

Thanks for the response! Is there any way I can do this myself? I have good soldering experience.
Edit: It looks like I have a Xenon xbox, so he wouldn't service it anyway. Thanks, though.

ITS NOT that hard actually..Open up your xbox360,take out the internal hard drive,format it and put it the needed software.BUT be ware that you wont have access to the internet and you wont be able to do certain updates.Also, I havent found a way to play original xbox games,so yeah.

Maybe an xKey or xDock for you? That way you leave your hard drive and optical drive unmodified. The RGH route does open a lot of possibilities but just don’t plan on connecting to live. I prefer the Wasabi and have all my 360s with these but they are no longer manufactured.

I'd recommend getting an Xbox 360 Slim as it would likely last longer, be quieter and take up less space (and you'll have HDMI). You have to get a chip depending on your model, do some soldering and program the chip / install speed up files for fast as possible boot times.

There are many tutorials out there but be warned its a headache compared to just a softmod, you can buy one pre-modded. I got mine from The Weekend Modder because he does an excellent job soldering and posts a proof video before sending it out, but it was $235 after shipping at the time I bought it a couple years ago.

Once you have a modded 360 you'll be able to use any 2.5" hard drive (I think up to 2TB), and for the dash I'd suggest Aurora as your main dash and use FreeStyle Dash 3 to rip games to the hard drive.

Interesting, I wouldn't have guessed that the slim model was moddable. The only reason I'm using the Xenon model for this is because I picked it up for $20 over the weekend and figured I'd mess around with it.
