    Arrow Xbox softmod tutorial

    Equipment Needed:
    1. XBOX version (not 1.6) (with the 4920 Dashboard)
    2. Original copy of '007 - Agent Under Fire'
    3. Action Replay for XBOX
    4. Official 'Microsoft' Memory Card
    5. Mordens Audio Hack 007 V.3

    You only need items 6 and 7 below if you intend on
    FTP'ing into your XBOX!!

    6. Ethernet PCI Card 10/100Mbps
    7. Ethernet Crossover Cable (CAT 5 / RJ45)

    Now to the juicy part....Hacking that XBOX!!!!



    STEP 1. Install the Action Replay card reader and Software to your PC (you need a USB port in the back!)

    STEP 2. Insert your MS Memory Card into the Card Reader..Windows will detect this as a new device, Just follow
    the information it gives you (You may need to insert your Action Replay CD-ROM again).

    STEP 3. Unrar 'Mordens Audio Hack' and take out 'BondSave.zip'...Open the Action Replay program and then
    Drag & Drop the 007 Gamesave onto the Memory Card window..Hey presto! The gamesave is on your Memory card.

    STEP 4. Insert your Memory Card into your Controller and boot up your Xbox. Then go to Memory and Copy the 007
    Gamesave from you MC to the XBOX Hardrive. Take out your Memory Card.

    STEP 5. Insert you copy of 'Agent Under Fire'. Select Start Mission, Then Exit that mission. Go to Load Mission and Load the 007 Gamesave from your Harddrive.
    And if all is well you will see the 'Phoenix Bios Loader' image then the new 'MXM' Dashboard will Boot up!!!

    STEP 6. When MXM has loaded Press B to goto the Audio Exploit section (without this you cannot run backups etc...)
    Press A to Install it and then A again to Confirm. When that is done it should return to MXM.


    **PLEASE NOTE** You only need to follow these next steps
    if you want to install Games straight to your XBOX harddrive.
    You can stop here if all you want to do is play CDRW/DVDRW backups.

    STEP 7. To FTP into your XBOX you will need to connect your Crossover Cable (CAT5) from your Ethernet Card in your PC to the Ethernet Port in the back of the XBOX.
    To FTP files to and from PC to XBOX you will need some FTP software. I recommend CUTE FTP.
    Once installed goto the Site Manager and enter the following details

    FTP Host Address - 192.168.0.3
    User Name - xbox
    Password - xbox
    FTP Port - 21

    STEP 8. Connect through CUTE FTP to your XBOX and you should now see in the Right-Hand window the inside of your XBOX...You should see these Drives:

    C,D,E,F,G (and maybe X and Y)

    STEP 9. If you want to Install Games, Applications and Emulators to your XBOX you will need to put them onto the E drive.
    You can install to the F drive if your Xbox will allow you to format it.

    Good Luck and Happy Soft-Modding

    Is there any way to install a new BIOS (like XBMC etc.) through FTP?

    It is usually done through a utility on a Slayers or similar DVD. (Google Search)

    Not without softmodding first, without buying any other components easiest method is to use Ndure to create a pc boot disk than hotswap the xbox hdd and load the softmod that way.Done 9 this way and it only takes about 20-30 mins max, XBMC makes the xbox the most versatile piece of AV equipment you'll own. I have setup 2 as wireless media streamers with over 100 movies loaded onto the a 160gig hdd and coinops emulator with 1066 arcade games. All outputing 1280x720P onto my 46" HD LCD. The wii now completes the package.
