This wold be a better thing to ask over at the 360-HQ but as far as i know all you can do is run backups.

WOW thats trusting of you.LOL
When it comes to the 360 you got to watch what you do to it, you get banned and the 360 is not near as grate as it can be with live.
With all the hacking and modding stuff getting so main stream their real hardcore about stoping it now, like thay can. Rolling Eyes

Even when thay get the home brew going i wold wait it out to make sure gates cant find it on your 360.
Then install what ever it might be, firmware, chip, softmod, what ever.

The risk of no live is a high price to pay for homebrew.

I agree, live is a must have. I play gears of war everynight on live for at least 3 hours, and on the weekend for 10+ hours. Its just the best part of the 360.

Really all you can do is this:

Water cooling
Case mods
Upgrading thermal paste
Flashing firmware
DVD firmware chip
Upgrade fans
Fan in front
Top part for DVD drive so you can see the DVD spinning.

Thats about all you can do to the 360 right now.

Upgrading the fans is the only thing i'd be interested in there, but that voids the warranty right?

they are very loud standard though, definitely wouldnt be watching movies on a standard x360.

if the homebrew gets really good in about a year or so i'd probably pick up a second 360 just to mod, so i can keep one for live.

Old xbox is kinda dead now for xbox live wise, no one plays halo 2 anymore.

Only good for some mods, game wise its boring compared to 360.

Id say pick one up anyways even if you can't mod it, its really worth.

Not meaning to sound harsh, but getting homebrew on the 360 is gonna be difficult. There will be no live whatsoever you think (because it has to be downgraded to an old kernel, and live wlil try and automatically update it), plus if you are a current gamer on the 360 its pointless to hack the console.

Like said earlier, Xbox Live on the first Xbox was OK, but now that it has grown so much with the 360 I couldn't NOT have it. I love the Arcade Games for starters lol.

Emulator-Wise the first Xbox will always be the best I think, unless some BIG major breakthrough happens.
