Have an old Xbox 1 sitting around? Don't throw it away just yet. Did you know that your Xbox can be turned into a full 100% Media Center? That's right. If you pay me the right price I can Upgrade your Xbox 1 Hard Drive Disc (HDD) into any size you'd like (Prices posted below). The Xbox 1 one can do some Outstanding things if you use the right programs. It can run certain Applications, Homebrew, Emulators etc...Act now and I'll pre-load ROMs onto the HDD. I am not a local business however, just a fan boy that's successfully modded a few Xbox's in the past. Please allow 1-5 Days if you respond to his Ad, as well as allowing 1-5 Days for the mod to be finished.

Prices:
Soft Mod With Loaded ROMs: $20.00
80GB HDD Upgrade: $60.00
160GB HDD Upgrade: $80.00
500GB HDD Upgrade: $100.00
1TB HDD Upgrade: $150.00
2TB HDD Upgrade: $200.00
Your Own: $40.00*


*If you have your own HDD ready keep in mind to back up all the files on it because it will be deleted during the format process.

I will offer a life time Warranty, this Warranty meaning that if something goes wrong and you would like me to try the Softmod over again I'll be more then happy to. How ever there are no refunds.

If I were you Id stay away from doing anything over 500GB, or youre gonna have complaints and issues you wont be able to fix. The XBOXs you see with drives that size are chipped. You need to replace the memory controller to make true use of a drive that size. Or you end up with data corruption, ghosting and write failures. Also I wouldnt advertise ROMS since thats copyright infringement. With just the exploit and Emus you should have a turn around time of under an hour. Especialy if you do it smart, load SC get the EEPROM use SID5 Pimped Final to build the drive mod and load emus/roms.

The price for the mod is what I charge but your drive prices are a little high Very Happy I sell XBOXs with 80GB WD HDD, USB wired in via 4th controller, modded and loaded, 1 controller, hookups, 3 original games original drive and a rescue disc for 60 bucks.

Before you start selling though, you need to get your stuff down cold, be able to mod and fix in your sleep. The last thing a person wants to hear is I dont know or I cant fix or mod it. Spend a weekend just fuc$ing with an xbox screw it on purpose and try to fix, get FTP down, and get familiar with the various errors that cause a mod to fail.

Thanks for the tip, the reason I charge so much is because I still have to order the HDD from Amazon since I don't have that many laying around to just give people, I've been practicing a bit I'll take your advice and warn the customer about the SATA HDD.

Get a city business license (I got mine for 20 bucks) call it a computer company, now you can buy from wholesalers and get a much better price. Thats what I do, it pisses all my friends off cause I go to the PC supplier here and I pay less with tax than what the sticker price is yet they pay sticker price Very Happy

Heres an excellent example
SATA Cable at FutureShop

http://www.futureshop.ca/en-CA/product/dynex-2-blue-serial-ata-2-0-cable-dx-c102131/10057914.aspx?path=ba9bf6a58fe214f2064a3085cc10b01den02

I paid less than that for 2 SATA cables and brandnew LG Supermulti DVD burner at KCC
