WARNING: modding your xbox will VOID YOUR WARRANTY and may lead to the CANCELLATION OF YOUR XBOX LIVE ACCOUNT if you attempt to connect to xbox live with a modded xbox.
I am still (amazingly) seeing a lot of folks asking about modding their XBox, so I wanted to add some links in one thread so everyone will be able to find them without making a hundred posts, especially in areas that have nothing to do with the XBox versions of the games.
And for the record, you DO NOT need a modchip to mod your XBox. You can do what is called a softmod
1. You need
to read these tutorials:
2. To follow along with the above tutorials you will need a download called: Softmod.Installer.Deluxe.v2.0.Xbox-Hq.rar
This rar file contains the files you need
. In addition, you will need
a game that has a linux installer on it.
To locate Softmod.Installer.Deluxe.v2.0.Xbox-Hq.rar
you will have to either Google for it, or use xbins to download. Here's a tutorial for xbins:
(You may be able to find it on a newsgroup too. Just search for it on one of the XBox newsgroups.)
READ THE TUTORIALS FIRST!!! (I really cannot stress this enough.)
If you come back and post a message about something that is covered in the tutorials, then that only shows me that you have not
read the tutorials and I will be less inclined to assist you. I took the time to read the tutorials, so should you.
Modding your XBox should not be rushed, and it's not that hard. I did it, so can you. But you have to do a little research and reading first
or you will seriously
mess up your XBox!
To all of the other XBox modders: feel free to add in what I am sure I forgot to cover
FOR YOUR INFORMATION #1: Model files will not work on the XBox. No ifs, ands, or buts about it. They just won't - no matter what someone else may tell you. Any other files should with a little finagling. But no, model files will not work. Don't even try them. Your XBox will hate you for it.
FOR YOUR INFORMATION #2: Module files, or any mods that place files outside of the Override folder in your XBox files, won't work. Module mods are those like ORD Mandell and outside files are those like wav files, etc...
FOR YOUR INFORMATION #3: the Override folders for KotOR 1 and KotOR 2 for your XBox are:
KotOR 1 - E:/TDATA/4c410003/Override/
KotOR 2 - E:/Games/Star Wars KotOR II (OR SWKotOR II OR Whatever it gets named)/Override
If there isn't an Override folder in either one of these directories to start with, then you will have to create one and FTP it to the XBox.
