I decieded to post this since this forum gets many people who don't know what they are doing so I will post some tips and some good sites to help you and thre all in order or in ranking.
First to get started into softmodding you need to read all the Soft Mod sites then dowload the tools and FTP and look in the tips section for info on FTP and then you need to get it to your xbox via action replay and the linux exploits then from there follow the websites provided.

*Also I have in no way responsible for your actions with these.*

NOTE-My MSN Messager Name is grassshack@hawaii.rr.com and Oskins813 MSN is williamtyb@hotmail.com

Me and Oskins813 will be posting and helping people out.

If any one needs the new exploits for 1.6 or higher I need you to PM me and well get on MSN Messager and I'll give it to you or look below! Very Happy

How to Apply a New Harddrive

Since many people are asking "Im buying a new Harddrive to restore your Xbox" well if it was that simple I do it every day.

http://www.xbox-scene.net/articles/no-modchip-hdd-swap.php

Tips

-MAKE SURE to create a MS dashboard backup ON E: drive or your screwed up!!

-After installing which dashboard you want you can hook up your xbox and PC using cross over ethernet cable or two ethernet cables joined through a router then use FTP to connect to your xbox using option in dashboard and using the IP adresses given on the xbox enter this at the address on top right of screen of FTP then hit connect if correct should have the drives of the xbox and DON"T mess with the C: drive and your MS backup should be on your E: and other memory of the xbox you will want to edit the UDATA or TDATA or others that have what your looking for but it's very hard to find (all in numbers). Once you found the new maps of Halo 2 then edit using the tools I gave you and put back on the memory were you found it and close FTP and reset your router and hook your xbox to xbox live.

-To go on to Xbox live after modding is done you need to restore MS Backup very important!

-NOT all linux exploits for action replay work on xboxes 1.6 you may need a Auto Installer on disc to break it or pm me and i'll give to you over MSN Messager!

-To install a new hardrive you need to buy a locked one if it's the same version as your harddrive but need to buy unlocked if different version and you need a CD with a Installer to lock them together basically your harddrive and motherboard need to get married

-Ok I'm making another one of these since many people are asking "Im buying a new Harddrive to restore your Xbox" well if it was that simple I do it every day.

Nice work. Should be added to the modding FAQs sticky (at the least) or given its own sticky because I doubt enough people read the faqs...

EDIT: halomods isn't a softmodding site, it's a halo modding site. and xbox-scene is an everything modding site.

hey, i downloaded the splintercell exploits, and i have them all ready to go. (just waiting on the splintercell game) but my question is, when your doing the step in DotHalo, what file (patch) is it that you use to open... It says to open the patch you downloaded in the tutorial earlier. I'm assuming this must be one of the linux files that were saves for splinter cell...
please respond if you know what i'm talking about

I have a few questions, dealing with FTP and trainers.

1. My Xbox has to have the same IP address and subnet mask as my PC correct?

2. Is there any way to get to the MS Dashboard, once I have put EvoX on it? I used Softmod Installer Deluxe to install the latest version of Evox.

3. I think I had the IP thing right, but I keep getting timeout/no route to host errors??

4. I use dvd2xbox that came with the Evox dashboard to burn my game to my Xbox hard drive, correct?

5. Do I have to do that before FTP will work?

6. Can someone tell me, in explicit detail, how to use the trainers that came with EvoX? I've tried everything and it's driving me nuts... Mad

1 Your xbox will show your IP address then connect you xbox through the router toegether but no master on it. Then type the IP in the top of the FTP screen and they should connect.

2 The Soft mod installer should have the DAshboard on it somewhere if it's a CD but you need to back it up on the E drive if not..

3You need to connect your computer using the same IP as your Xbox or try connect using internet protocaol on your PC and the Subnet mask will fill it self and and dont worry about the default gateway.

4Yes you can burn the game to your E drive and then you can mods all the maps but if you want to mods the 4 new ones and play xbl you need to find it on UData on E data and also you can't play xbl using your halo2 and your HD but you need to pop the CD in you can have it one there but dont run it using xbl use the disk.

5 You need FTP to connect eith your Xbox

6 No need for those..

7 you ow me.

There's truly two ways to soft mod. you can SOFTmod and make it soo EvoX loads on your xbox when you turn it on and use dvd2xbox to burn xbox games to your harddrive and mod the game yourself. or you can softmod and use the splinter cell exploits to use a temporary EvoX file to gain ftp access and transfer files that were already pre made. The first way is uber hard and i dont know how to do it. The second way is much simpler and you'll be able to play live. However alot of the time the second way doesn't work for most xbox's. examples are xbox's freezing and error 21.
