To FTP (transfer files from your pc to your xbox) you need to be modded either by softmod or chip.

Modchips gives you many possibilities: easy access to XBox live, easier hdd upgrade, LCD displays, etc.

Softmods can cost nothing or very little. You don't have to open up your box so it's good if you have a warrenty. It can be very easy to install.

Take things one step at a time. What you want to do can be done by either type of mod. Decide which way you want to go and do your homework.

That is the most important part. Too many times someone decides to softmod because (for the most part) there is no actual cost to modding the xbox. The issue is that it's also the easiest way to turn it in to a non-recoverable brick. If you wish a chip, we can suggest proven chips and if you can't solder then we can recommend chips with solderless adapters. But as Dangermouse said, read a little first and it will save you a buttload of time. You'll be enjoying the mod instead of troubleshooting it.

mazor55 perhaps we didn't state our case clearly enough. So let me start by saying that we are simply recommending you do some homework before you softmod. It can be done and we can help but don't think you'll pop in a disk and boom it's done. You should understand the process so that if you get in trouble and need our help you can tell us what steps you've taken so far. Get the SID or AID 2.1.1 from here and then once you've got that and read a little, let us know and we'll get you modded.
Just dont' do anything before you understand what you are doing.
We just wanted to make that clear.

We'd luv to have you as part of our modding community.
Just read in the tutorials about softmodding so you know what to do, get the software and ask lots of questions.
Dangermouse and I with the rest of the community will help you along.
Before you know it, you will be the envy of all your friends.

I would like to confirm but I believe VIP access (even the 14 day trial $5) would give you access to the save you'd need but you'd still need to have a memory card. Is that right softmod experts? Shocked

Here's some info on the softmod software DJB put together.
Check it out: Very Happy
