|1st xbox softmod...
Softmodded original Xbox v1.0 (8gb hd) then cloned the drive to an 80Gb hd.
backup games work from dvd and HD (used dvd2xbox for that)
going to do a couple more xbox's then i'll post my tutorial video from start to finish.
(after scouring the net i compiled my own softmod process (since there's never 1 tutorial that actually works from start to finish... somethings always missing.)
thanks to all softmodders that post info.
