yup, exactly scarecrow540.. Its a hard mod..

A Softmod is only software which is loaded onto the xbox to gain access to run unsigned code which means the xbox can boot homebrew dashboards, emulators and backup dvd-r's etc. With a softmod a hacked bios is run from the hdd.

With a modchip (hard-mod) the modchip enables the xbox to run unsigned code too.. But with a modchip its so much easier to get back your xbox from a error you may encounter while learning to mod.. Smile Its also much quicker to upgrade your hdd using a modchip.

hope that helps you understand a little more..
