    Sorry to resurrect this from the dead, can anyone direct me to where I can find one of the compatible discs? Thank you!

    There is a Want To Buy thread. Post there. Alternatively try Yahoo Auctions or other Asian auction sites.

    Your best bet would be the Korean and Chinese auction sites. I don't know the best ones off the top of my head, but the Asian version games are more likely to be found there. Japan will likely be dry.

    Another member on here provided me with a copy of MechAssault. Did exactly as above and worked great! I went the way of updating the dashboard to 5960 via Star Wars Battlefront II. Once that was done, uploaded the files, threw in MechAssault, 10 minutes later, its softmodded and playing NTSC U games:)

    Another way of softmodding (for 100% free) is hotswap.

    Nope, I mean hotswapping the HDD to your pc and just copying the softmod files over to the hdd.
    Then you don't need a compatible game.

    Check out this thread http://assemblergames.com/l/threads...hotswap-an-xbox-and-adding-a-larger-hd.45532/
    If that's not enough, use the forum search and google, there are lots of guides out there so I'm sure you'll find one.
    Ps. iirc v1.6 xbox hotswap differs slightly from other xbox versions. It has to be hotswapped at the exactly right moment, which takes a bit of practice and patience.
    I could be wrong though, and it's not any different from other xboxes, haven't done this in years..

    The swap should be the same on any but chimps has problems with 1.6 iirc.

    While I'm sure there are plenty other games I used to use the Halo 2 map pack disc since it keeps the HDD unlocked the entire time it's booted.

    Easy hotswap if you don't have that disc: Rip a music CD track to HDD, play it, pause it. HDD is now unlocked. No timing issues.

    Why dont you just open the xbox and sofmode via pc? I softmoded mine without games...
    You just need a pc with ide interface and a boot disc do put on pc drive :)

    You ruined 2 perfectly fine rare as fuck Xbox's. If they were normal consoles, i wouldnt care but limited edition modding makes consoles worth nothing.

    Not if he did it without opening them (which seems to be the case). You can always go back to stock software, no harm done.
