How to Softmod you XBOX [Full Tutorial]
Tut written by h@Ck3R, AKA jdw

Things needed

-mIRc [Found here]
-FlashFXP [Found here]
-PC
-CD or DVD Burner
-Knowledge of Xbins [Found here]
-Blank CD/DVD
-UXE Package [Found in Xbins]
-Alcohol 120 [Found here]
-xboxhdm 1.9 [Found here]

((You will need mIrc and FlashFXP to get in Xbins, here to find out how))

--Note, before you do this, be sure you have exactly and know exactly everything you are supposed to have/do. I am not to hold responsible if you mess something up--

1.- First step is to get UXE, it's in Xbins. Exact folder location is
/XBOX/exploits/_Packages/UXE/uxe-complete-v0.2.2.rar

2.- Extract the uxe-complete-v0.2.2.rar, there should be folders with names like "uxe-c-replace" or "place-on-e". Now, if you are using a Retail HD (hard drive that comes with Xbox) then go into the support files folder and run 71-fonts-install.bat and nkpatcher-06-install.bat. If you have a bigger hard drive (30gb and up) then run the other 2 .bats.

3.- Download xboxhdm 1.9. Extract the files and open it.

4.- Then open the linux folder inside. There should be a C and E folder. Delete everything out of it [there shouldn't be anything in them].

5.- Then copy all of the files inside of "uxe-replace-c" to the C folder in "xboxhdm\linux".

6.- Then copy all of the "place-in-e" files to the E folder in "xboxhdm\linux".

7.- Then go back to xboxhdm folder and run win-iso.bat.

8.- Now the Installer is ready.

9.- Download Alcohol 120

10.- Install it and run it and click Burn Disc Image

11.- Select the linux.iso file in the xboxhdm folder.

12.- After burn is complete turn your computer off [keep the linux disc you just burned in disc drive].

13.- Now unplug the IDE cable from all of your hard drives.

14.- Open Xbox, Tutorial here.

15.- Unscrew hard drive from case inside.

16.- Loosen IDE cable from xbox hd.

17.- Turn on and make sure it boots up.

18.- If so, then wait 1 min after done booting.

19.- Now turn you computer on and when it searches for drives click Pause Break. [Next to Scroll Lock]. It should pause the search.

20.- Now unplug your Xbox hd REALLY quick and plug the PC IDE Master cable in and click enter.

21.- That should of continued the search.

22.- If it takes a while for the PC to detect the xbox hd then it didn't work so keep repeating [trust me, just keep trying].

23.- If it says IDE Hard Disk then you got it.

24.- Now your computer can't boot from xbox hard drive so it will try your cd/dvd drive.

25.- [If you kept your disc in] It should have a menu with Options 1-4. Choose 1

26.- Now when it's done loading type "xboxhdm" and press enter.

27.- It should come up with a new message. Type "yes".

28.- Now another menu should come up. Type 1 and press enter.

29.- It should ask if you want to format the xbox partitions. Type "yes".

30.- If it asks to format F: drive ype "yes".

31.- Now it should ask you if you want to continue copying files from C:. Type "yes".

32.- Next it should ask if you want to continue copying files from E:. Type "yes".

33.- It should soon come up and say "All Done!". Wait 5 seconds and turn PC and Xbox off.

34.- Hook your xbox IDE cable back to your Xbox and turn it on. You now have a modded Xbox with Evox version 3935.

--I wrote this tutorial because I had a lot of trouble when I first starting softmodding--

Hi thanks for the tutorial but we suggest all the guys here use Softmod Installer Deluxe 3.0... SID is a Auto Installer for softmods.. Smile It installs a basic dashboard and does everything for you..

You can learn more from the officail site here:
http://www.aideluxe.com (http://www.aid.xbox-hq.com)

There are many tutorials on how to softmod any xbox using the XBOXHQ Softmod Installer Deluxe and it is available for free too from the aideluxe.com website.. If you become a vip member it just makes it much easier to get ahold of.

cya and thanks again for your input.. Im sure someone who has used this method may want to do it again.. Its a pretty old method though now.

buuuuuttttt... I'm not a VIP and there are hundreds of people who skim through these forums for answers and don't wanna waste $5 on a download or is scared to. I haven't even heard of SID. It boots in PC right?

and i kow that there are many other tutorials but this one puts them all together. I used 3 tutorials that I can think of and compiled it together even with dls. im just makin it easier for ppl

There is a lot more to the VIP DONATION than just the softmod installer deluxe. And the tutorials and downloads that you listed that you can only get on xbins can be found in the free download area of the website. I'm not saying that your tutorial isn't helpful, it's just there are plenty of tutorials located here and also trying to have someone try and get files from xbins if they're new to the scene can be quite confusing and frustrating. Plus the support you get from our seasoned modding experts is more than invaluable.

VIP membership is way worth the $10. it makes modding so much easier and convienient. things like SID & AID. id be LOST without Auto-installer Deluxe 2.11 Final. why look all over the internet for things you MAY find, when you can be VIP and SURELY find them here? if youre serious about modding, you will consider becoming VIP. i tell every person i know into xbox to check out this site. VIP is no "Risk". id be the first one to say i was ripped off $10, but i have been a HAPPY member since may i think. ive used way more than $10 worth of software and help. just my thoughts.

u cannot get UXE on the free download section here and that's the only thing i said to get off xbins. i didn't even know SID existed. is it on xbins? im not serious about hacking, i just want to make mine and my dad's xbox play our pal games and put fother emulators/roms on it. i meen after you do that what else is there to do?

btw, do u still have to hotswap for SID?

lol you only need to hotswap if you f#&@ up your box Razz SID and AID are available through torrent without donating although donating helps Hobbs keep this site alive. i suggest visting the AID site and reading the manual for SID and see how easy it is to softmod. i started reading your tutorial and i was even put off by how difficult it sounded and i've been around here for a year now. BUT thanks much for taking the time to write it, looks ike you put ALOT of effort into gathering all that into one tutorial.

this sounds good and all, i like your enthusiasm, but recently anounced a better softmod system, the most advanced ever, that's gonna be supported all the way, even via hotswap.

1.- Auto Installer Deluxe 3

2.- Softmod Installer Deluxe 4

3.- Hotswap Installer Deluxe 1 (this will be more advanced then what you currently posted)

I don't mean to sound bad, but this is the same tutorial i found on xbox scene. Are you the same author?


UXE is now outdated. Ndure, and now SID 4. Read about it here: http://www.xbox-hq.com/html/postt11636.html

if you never heard of SID, then it's ok, cause this new SID is the real deal, no more suffering, and no more crap from other softmod scripters.

yea gamesave exploits require the game (as to not have to hotswap)which is the only downside to them, but they can usually be rented for $2 or often bought at a used game store for $7

and the hotswap installer deluxe will have give you exploit files to achive the same quality install of SID 4, but just using HOTSWAP, nothing more, no game no nothing.

things you need:

Desktop PC
xbox (no.......really?)
xboxhdm_1.9
Pirrups hotswap tutorial (if can hotswap already, then your ok)
MS Dash 5960 (now it's actually optional)
*no name yet* but it's gonna be a zip or rar containing the exploit files that will go directly on C drive.

it's simple, you'll rebuild C partition using your made disc, if you can't rebuild, then use the xbrowser to add files, and delete old files. after that, you'll install all files from exploit files, and your MS Dash should go on C\MS_DASH\ folder, so it's retail, and not modded, for complete install.

once you've done this, you rebuild your xbox, power on, and you'll get a menu, similar to SID 4, with onscreen menus and choices.

first backup eeprom *must*
after you choose wheather you have ms dash or not in c:\ms_dash\ folder.
then you choose your exploit method followed by your dash of choice for install.

viola, your softmod is intalled, and no you don't do things at the time, you just select in order and it's all installed automaticly.

*currently working on it*
