Soft-modding an xbox

Since my trusty softmodded xbox died on me, I have been forced to hook up my laptop to the TV whenever I wanted to enjoy a movie on the big screen. I quickly got tired of fumbling with cables all the time, so I resolved to find a used original XBOX and once again softmod it to install XBMC on it.

I still haven't given up on my old broken Xbox, but I definitely need to get more soldering practice before I attempt to desolder the blown capacitors and solder new ones in.

I had some trouble softmodding the Xbox with an old Dell computer I had in the house... the BIOS wouldn't recognized the hot-swapped hard drive. I had to use another (unbranded) computer, which worked right on the first hot-swap attempt.

Happy days!
