Okay, so I'm admittedly an X-box n00bie, but moderately experienced with PC and tech stuff..
I just got an X-box and want to either soft or hard-mod the thing.. so that I can 1. play backups of games (from a new 250gig HD I got for it), and 2. continue to play xbox live.
I've been scanning the forums on xbox-scene.com but sheesh they are pretty thick..
Basically, can one do the above (HD backyps and play XBL) with a soft-mod (UXE & nkpatcher -- or any other for that matter)? Can you with a chip?
Also.. if anyone knows of any decent noob guides I'd appreciate..
