Cheers mate, that was v helpful! 3 final questions lol

-whats with the backups etc and do I need to know more before going ahead with this? Is it possible it could crap out on me and ruin my machine?

-the files on your memory card, the sid files and the mech assault file, do I get those seperately or does the exploit come with the sid files?

-what do you do after you've got to the point where its installed and working like in your video to play region free games? Is it just a case of putting in whatever game you want and away you go? OR are there other things you need to do to get it working after that?

Thanks again

Just as an update, I got Mech Assault today, do I need to check for a version number on the disc? I can't see one. Its PAL, doesn't have any numbers on it and is the original not classics version. cheers
----------
Also, just wondering where I get the appropriate files I need. Is this the correct link for the SID file program thing?

http://www.xbox-hq.com/html/forum4.html

Have I found the right page for the xplorer360 program?

http://www.xbox-hq.com/html/article2895.html

And what about the xplorer360? Is it on this site? I also need the mech assault exploit file right? I have looked in the Downloads section but I'm not having much luck finding exactly the right stuff. Cheers

that version of xplorer360 will work, for both reading your harddrive, now and later, but it needs to be unlocked. Another topic for you later once you are up and running, but if you ever see the option to unlock the harddrive...don't. It's not to be done with softmodding. xplorer is for reading the stick as well.
You asked earlier about how the xbox detects the usb stick, well the controller and original memory card are both usb devices, just it has different connectors. There is one extra wire but that was for the camera I beleive, which is not used anymore.
That is the correct link for the SID, the very first sticky is what you want.

oh I don't think I wanna unlock the harddrive, unless I need to in order to play NTSC games. Is that the right version to get the data on my memory card after the xbox formats it?

Thanks for the info! I guess I just have to donate now to get into those forums?

You dont want to unlock your hard drive, all you want to do is get the SID files : http://aidtracker.com/ (use v5.10) on your hard drive.
Do this :
Extract the SID51.Loader.MechAssault.zip, look in folder UDATA and transfer folder 4d530017 to your memory device via xplorer360.

copy the file from the memory card to your xbox hard drive (once you see the game save press right on the D-pad, the `copy` option should show)

once the files/save has copied reboot your console and load the MechAssault game.

Once its loaded and you can launch the `Run Linux` save profile, simply create a MS backup then install the softmod.

Thanks for simplifying the process dude! Ok so I will give this all a go shortly. Unfortunately it will have to wait until I can afford to donate and get access to the downloads which will be a week monday and I need to buy a memory stick too. The only thing I am unclear on from here is using the xplorer 360 program but I'm sure it won't be too complicated. Anyway I will holler if i get stuck. Thanks again guys

Ok I got everything figured out now thanks to WES and User1 especially, got the SID files downloaded and just need to actually go ahead with the mod now!! Should be next week. Thanks again to you guys for your help and patience, most appreciated

Slightly off topic, is there anywhere on the site thats appropriate for me to link to my photos of my setup? I mean like my collection, consoles setup and stuff like that? Thanks
