There are two ways to surf the web on X-box.

1) Linksboks which is a stand alone application you launch from your replacement dashboard.

2) Linux + Firefox but you'll need a keyboard & Mouse + Adapter cables.

Not if he fries his HD or PC.

With hot-swapping there is always risk that something will not go correctly. (PATA drives were not meant to hot swap such as SATA drives.

Getting memory unit and mod for controller is way to go IMHO.

Agreed. All though I have only ever used the hotswap method and have had no problems at all.

Odd question...

I have xbox1, which is hardmodded.

I also have xbox2, which is softmodded and I have the eeprom.bin from it on my pc.

I want to take the HDD (80gb) out of xbox1 and put it in xbox2 (10gb), I also have a new 320gb to put in xbox1.

Putting the hdd in xbox1 is no problem because it's hardmodded so I can lock/unlock it at will.

I know how to setup the 80gb on xbox1 but is there any program to lock the drive using the eeprom.bin from xbox2? I only have a laptop handy so can't easily use hdm.

EDIT: Seems Configmagic will do that for me

I've sorted all my xboxes now!

My original xbox which is hardmodded now has a shiny new 320gb HDD in it. Magic.

Also, the two bricked ones have now been resurrected, both by using my amazing taped modchip method and are both now softmodded, one with an old 80gb HDD and one with a 320gb HDD.

SPANKY!
