hey..how exactly does a dual boot softmod work?
I understand that it is used to go on xbox live. If i insert a burned game, will it let me go on XBL?

also, what does it mean by dual boot? can i also boot the original dash instead of evoX so it doesnt know im modded or something?
someone explain this whole thing to me please Wink

if you dual booted your xbox you should be able to use both power buttons on your xbox.

You use your eject disc button and leave it open untill it boots the original M$ dashboard

You use just the power button with the tray closed to boot the soft modded xbox.

burned games will never work on xbox live because they will not read without a chip on. Never go onto xbox live with a chip on, nor should you use xbox live unless your Xbox is a solid green. no other color.

any other questions feel free to ask.

i think you're mistaken...burned games DO boot without a modchip..thats one of the major things a softmod does..boots backed-up games

You took it wrong. I have a softmodded xbox as well as a xbox with a mod chip, both run burned dvd's. To tell the truth, if all you are going to do is play burned games and install a dashboard like xbmc, get your xbox softmodded, it costs hardly anything, you don't have to open the case and it is easy as pie. Not sure what the advantages are to hard modding an xbox. If someone knows, please tell me.

hey unreal..i get what your saying now i think...

you're saying that if i boot the original MS dash, it won't boot burned games. I tried it and the screen just went black.

but if you boot a softmodded dash it DOES let you boot burned games..i have 7 burned games so i would kinda know Wink

Thats the point of a dual boot really. When it boots to the MS dash its booting with the mod so you can play on live.

thats what im saying, it wont work. you cant paly a burned game on the M$ dash like you said, when your screen goes black.

in order to play on live you have to have the original copy of the game. and make sure your light is green and that you are booted in the right mode.
