Xbox Modding

Has anyone loaded gentoo on their xbox using evoX as the dashboard or even XBMC/XBMP


Or


Just post up what you have done with modding your xbox... I just finished setting up Relax to have xns share to stream all my DVD's and mp3's across the network to the xbox... and was looking in to the emulators but not having much luck with the emulators or the linux.... Post up your thoughts and ideas!

Sweet. I've got an Xbox (got it for free FuQ micro$uck!) and thought about modding it. When you mod it I'm guessing you loose the ability to use it as a 'Xbox gaming console'?

not at all.... you gain the ability to back up your games to the hard drive, upgrade your hard drive, load linux, and then if you want to play on live.... flip a switch and load up the actuall dvd of the game for live and and have fun... SAY GOODBYE to long load times when playing the games from your hard drive

Looking to mod mine as well. Wonder when they'll come up with some kind of spoof to stop this.

but the basic steps are

Order a Mod chip and a 120gig maxtor drive (locks easiest)
Install mod chip
Flash Bios with a supported bios
Load Evox (new dashboard)
Configure the settings as desired

I created shared on my network to stream mp3's and video with out waisting the space on the xbox drive, and then I can copy down my games as backups. If you still want to play on xbox live... just flip a switch.. putin the retail game and play till your heat is content....


I was scared at first... but it is very simple and tons of help is out there

a modded x-box is the shit.

playing games without a disk is bad ass, playing movies from the hard drive is bad ass, hooking a wireless keyboard and mouse and browsing the internet with it is bad ass, playing Sony PS1 games from it is bad ass, playing Nintendo64... etc etc

it also has cool stuff like custom backgrounds for your start-up page(you can even make your own), FTP client, Media Player, streaming audio from shoutcast.com, mp3 player (of course) and built in cheats/trainers

load time is virtually eliminated as well. Games load in less than 2 seconds when not using the disks (that I backed up because I own everything I copy to the hard drive )

paid $77 for the chip and paid roughly $100 for the 120GB drive... money well spent
