Default Geek Question: Has anyone ever modded an Xbox?

Back in the day I used to Mod PS1's with those little 4 wire mod chips.

I was bored and started poking around about Xbox stuff. It sure seems a lot more involved than the good old solder 4 wires, burn a disc, and play.

Anyone else have experience with the new world of mod chips and back up discs?

I have helped add a bigger hard drive and attempted better graphics card, lost interest in graphics card when xbox360 got so much hype, there are a lot of awesome tech sites that show you how to beef up your xbox, I want to modd mine to be as good as a 360 as soon as i get some $$$

i got my special edition Halo X-box modded by my brother in law, he did a great job and it works perfect. Its not hard to do yourself, but finding the software online is a pita. Also i believe that you need a special dvd burner, cause X-box games are burnt in reverse.

Yeah one of the big updates you can get is a beefed up burner/player. Load time goes down and hardly no lag even on budget games.

PS
Has anyone else seen Xbox skins, I bought one at Blockbuster that says death and destruction with skull and cross bones and bullets all over it. Really cool, I checked out ebay and they had some great ones.

Send me $300 and I will bring this back with me (or ship ahead). I will also buy a ****load of burned games with whatever is left over after I argue the guy down (they are a couple dollars each).



- chip
- 60 gb hd
- 20 games already installed


Send me more money and a list of games and I will buy as many as I can. They have all the newest **** here for only a couple bucks each. I am allowed to bring back 1 copy per title according to customs.

No clue. I'm a Playstation guy. This one is blue.

I was wondering what the XBox and 360 are going for back home?
