Okay, I got me an X-Box on Saturday Night.

Now I have come across some one saying "Soft Moding an X-Box"

What does Soft Mod that mean?

What does Soft Moding do?

Why would I want to Soft Mod?

How do I go about Soft Moding?

What does a softmod mean?
A softmod means to mod your xbox without using hardware

What does softmodding do?
A softmod modifys your xbox so that it can run unlicensed code eg. game backups, programs etc. It changes the startup program of the xbox.

Why would you want to softmod?
Because you can mod your xbox without spending as much money as you would if you got a modchip. Also you do not have to open your xbox therefore you do not void your warranty, and you can always delete the softmod/reinstall factory settings.

How do you go about softmodding?
search torrentspy here is a link for the second latest version of the best softmodding program.. you will need a xbox memory card that can be accessed on your computer to transfer games saves onto it eg. megaxkey (from lik-sang )... and a original copy of either splinter cell, mechassault or 007 auf (no classics)

I had mine soft modded and went on XBOX live. They updated my system and knew it was soft modded. Now I can't play copied game on it anymore.

Yes, Modded Xboxs are banned form Xbox live. You should have checked that before trying.

You can use Linux on it and still play games. http://www.xbox-linux.org/

Also, an ActionReplay can be used to soft mod, if you don't want to order the aforementioned megaxkey off of the internet. Get one at pretty much any game store.

Look on http://www.xbox-scene.com for Softmodding information.

After you get it modded you'll probably want Xbox Media Center. http://www.xboxmediacenter.de
