Did this video help you?

Phill McKraken: could you use a flash drive instead of cd?

princedraco5: WIll I have to repeat this softmodding process and boot splinter cell every single time in order to play in mod mode?

Nick Wilson: Using XboxHDM would be a lot easier to do nowa days considering how hard it is to find n action replay.

Garett Geho: Does anyone know how to add custom images like he did at 26:32? I've tried, but with no luck.

Penribon: The first xbox I got was from my uncle and he modded the crap out of it, there is so many emulators and games holly crap

Mantis' Channel: You get my +1 for using Jet Set Radio music.

moosedev101: Nice clamshell breh ; )

Ichijoe2112: Not to p!ss in Ops Cheerios... But, if you already installed a Softmod w/a newer HDD... Or even wished to continue using the Stock Drive... *For whatever reason!* Couldn't you just save yourself a lot of pain by downloading a Binary Copy of XBMC4XBOX v3.5 Beta 2 (The latest release to date!), and just FTP that into your F:\Apps? Seems like a lot of wasted time, and plastic to burn this onto Media. If XBOX Modding, was still a big thing, and I had to turn over 10+ of these in a Week then I'd might consider this. But, for a single One off... I'd just FTP it! @ ~20.13: Again I call shenanigans! One would only use E+F, if you had a HDD less then 150Gb (IIRC). At the time I think the largest Partition you could have on the XBOX was a 148GB. LBA48? Again IIRC. So in any case if you had a Drive that was larger then a 150GB you'd have to use the E+F+G Setting. Not the E+F....

911delorean: I am having a problem with XBMC my tv isnt compatible with 720P only 480P and when i change it in the settings it isnt saving it and always defaulting to 720P can someone help???!

sandamtod: Awesome tutorial. Very clean and easy to follow. I DO recommend checking to make sure whatever HD you use that it is lockable, some are not.

Ichijoe2112: Again why are you transering these to the E:\ Drive? They belong on the F:\ and G:\ Drives... The C:\ and E:\ Drive should be treated and, respected as SYSTEM DRIVES!

Ichijoe2112: Wow luck bitch had the WD 10GB Dive in his... (Or so it seems), I only had the 8GB Seagate OEM in mine. And yes it was a 10GB Drive. MicroSoft only formatted it to use only 8GB though.

Austin Evans: You can do this with a crossover ethernet cord. You set you're computer ip address and xbox address exactly the same except the ip is 1 digit off the net, and gateway are the same. And it will work.

LordPlayGaming/Koledzy108: Hey What name od music playing in video ?

Mark Rizzo Field: Hi followed your video and all is good emus work great BUT xbox won't play original xbox games anymore! Play DVDs cd's all fine I've even swapped the drives over with 4 other consoles to prove the drive is good but it just reboots to xbmc screen rather than the game. any help please? Thanks

Ron Laws: I dont have a Memory card, or any adapters to make/flash one, i can however access my Xbox Hard drive directly using a USB IDE adapter and Windows XP in a virtual machine, using XPlorer360, and can (after some trial and error hotswapping) access and write files to the xbox hard drive, will this work if i copy those savegame files and the installer mods to the UDATA folder on the xbox hard drive?

Raoul Duke: remix sonic theme ? :D

SmartMake Mod: Xbox modded jailbreak hard drive new so

sohchx: How would I upgrade from Coinops 4 to 6??

Superdead22: I have an original crystal xbox and the splinter cell game however I don't have a memory card or a controller port to female USB adapter. If there a way for me to get the exploited saves onto the xbox's hard drive without buying anything else?

jgs600: just wanted to say after an initial problem ive now modded 4 original xboxes with this method.. cheers perfect

EpicSkittlez: I have to upgrade my hard drive because I have an error code 07. Every time I turn my xbox on it goes to the error screen. Will this still work for me? 

Niinja Skeilz: HELP! i push 1 and enter and then a black screen apears and i cant do anything and it doesnt go away what do i do?

MrSpc4: You should use DVD+R not -R Not all Xboxs can read DVD-R

Kin Ng: i will softmod your xbox for you !!!!!! let me know you can give me something you dont want

Lo Rizzl: I want to transfer the game save via ide to USB adapter since I have no other means is this possible with a hot swap? If so how

Jeffrey LeCours: When installing XBMC the first time, why did you choose "Install E Drive Dashboards" instead of "Install E Drive Dash (Softmod)" after you had just completed softmodding your xbox?

HansCampbell: Hey stupid, that is not an original xbox, that is an xbox 360. The original xbox is a very nice console, the xbox 360 is a piece of crap.

robert gwinn: I have an error every time it gets to the part where I try to install c drive. it acts like its installing then it brings a bunch of stuff on the screen locks the pc an keyboard and makes the caps lock an scroll lock lights flash. need help!!!

Milton Vargas: Hey man, awesome walk-thru. I have one question though, how do you get that splash screen with all the emulators when xbmc starts? I can't seem to find anything about it. Can you help me out? Thanks.

Jiminy Croquet: hey, how do i do it with an action replay cable, ms memory card and mechassault, i copied the mechassault run linux file and it shows up on my mem card but it doesnt give me the option to save it to my hard drive 

chappa jizzle: With the original XBOX

Michael Saikaly: Great video! I'm going to try this out. I do have a Q. IDE HDs are hard to find at a decent price these days... would a SATA to IDE connector work? If I just go out and buy a cheap SATA HD? You think that would work? Cheers

kurt caron: when i did the softmod with syphon filter it used the app being used at 19;31 seconds into the video is there away to change hd from this program or way i can run the program u used at the beginning of the video

Nick Schindler: Can anyone help me out? After piecing together several tutorials (tried to mainly use this one), I finally got it softmodded. After I installed XBMC, I did everything exactly as this tutorial says. Right at the 20:40 mark where you restart the xBox, yours boots into XBMC. Mine does not for some reason. Mine boots back to the softmodded dash (EvoX), then I have to go to "applications" and select XBMC to get to it. Can anyone help me on getting mine to boot directly to XBMC?

Austin Evans: another thing you can do is, is make a usb to xbox plug adapter, plug in the usb, it gets formatted as a xbox memory card, and plug up to your pc with action replay, the action replay will think its a action replay card.

jgs600: well i bought an old computer just to do this job and all i get is bootmgr missing

almadawarrior: do i really need to burn AID to a dvd? or can i simply run it from hdd already extracted the AID iso, and transfered it over to my xboxhd and got it running, but i'm still not sure if i should install xbmc from there. btw i already installed a bigger hdd and partitioned it under unleashx (currently using). any help would be appreciated will i still have access to unleashx dashboard? how to select which one to boot from?

HansCampbell: NVM, your pc looked like an xbox 360 when I fast forwarded.

Jiminy Croquet: ok, i got it to copy the run linux file but when i start mechassault and run the run linux profile, the light starts flashing red and green and just keeps restarting mechassault

chappa jizzle: Is the 250GB Western Digital PATA/IDE WD2500AAJB compatible?

supa11203: can the xbox read 1TB internal hard drives? and if it does whats the best brand should i buy…I'm thinking of getting a "seagate"

goldeneye106: At 17:53 where is this version of the f-zero big blue theme from? The uploader wasn't able to tell me.

mhenry676: This is my first softmod and it worked great! I've only done hardmods before but you can't find modchips anymore. They were only for allowing both hacked and unhacked modes but with Live gone, there is no point to modchips, although with my XBOX with the Xecuter 3 modchip, I can drop in any hard drive on the spot and set it up, lock it and use AID. Here's a few tips if you have issues... - If using a USB flash drive, you'll have to go small! I used a 128mb and it worked fine. 1GB did not, neither did an 8GB. USB card readers won't work but the ones that plug into the stick might work (i.e. no cord). You won't find that size in the store so look elsewhere, ask friend, etc. I used a flash drive so I'll continue with that... - Find a USB cable with a female end and an XBOX controller and splice them to make an adapter. Get them from Salvation Army, Goodwill, pawn shop, etc. Google for how to do it. - format the flash drive in the PC, FAT32, default cluster size - Plug the drive, using your new converter cable, into port 2 and turn on your XBOX. - Go to the memory section of the dashboard. Hopefully, you'll be notified that your memory card was corrupted and it was erased. If it states that you cannot use it, your flash drive probably won't work. - When the XBOX 'erased' your memory card, it actually formatted it to FATX. We're in business. Find a program called Xplorer360, plug your flash drive into your PC, DO NOT FORMAT IT! Use Xplorer360 to mount the drive and copy the saves from the SID by drag and drop to the Xplorer360. You want to drag the numerically named folder under the UDATA of the save zip file to the main area of the Xplorer360 window. So for the Splinter Cell save, you're dragging the '5553000c' folder from the SID511.Loader.SplinterCell.NTSC.zip (or the PAL one). Also, only use the SID.Installer.zip and not SID511.Installer.USB.zip. There is no need. Unmount the drive in Xplorer360 and remove the flash drive. Also, if during the copy the files don't show up in Xplorer360, unmount and remount. - At this point, you should be able to plug in the flash to the xbox with the cable and copy the saves to the hard drive. And a few notes about DVDs and the drives... -DVD-R work best. I've gotten Verbatim DVD+Rs to work with my Phillips drive -XBOXes with the Samsung drives tend to read more types of discs. If shopping for an XBOX at a pawn shop or what ever, plug the box in and eject the tray. Samsung drives have two finger holes for mini-DVDs. Phillips have none. Thompson is the other type and they are a different layout. You can google this for screenshots. My main XBOX has a Samsung and my softmod has a Phillips. Other than the high pitch squeeling, the Phillips is reading what I have so far but all my discs are older DVD-R. My Samsung still has issues with most DVD+Rs I've used, but my Verbatims work great. You might need to find Verbatims on-line like Newegg. Last tip, FOLLOW EVERYTHING THIS GUY SAYS ABOUT SWITCHING YOUR HD! I let my experience get the best of me and did a clean wipe and re-install of the MS Dashboard from the AID. This did not work. (It does when using my modchipped box. I had to pull it all apart, do the whole PC thing, add another hour of time, etc. 

James Ray: After I hit 1 enter on Xbox HD Maker I get a black screen. Any idea what im doing wrong? Thanks

SteelAceGS: Wish I could just find someone to do this for me, I dont know how to do most this stuff lol

shotzdog6: Ok, number 1 the guy was supposed to select softmod in auto installer deluxe, and number 2 he didnt need to run xbox partitioner, just select E F and G in auto installer deluxe!!

israeluanl: hi, one cuestion you create a iso after copying E and C and the epprom, and burn it this disc i can used in others hdd or only in the hdd the was used, if i create another bigger hdd i make all the steps for the new hdd?
