Xbox modification has come a long way in the past couple years. With
the introduction of the TSOP mod, potential modders no longer had to
shell out money for a modchip; rather just bridge two points on the Xbox
motherboard. Now one doesn't even have to open up his Xbox. Welcome to
the world of soft modding. Using code exploits in certain games, a user
is able to load a phony gamesave that will boot into a Linux based
operating system and allow a user to mod his Xbox... in under ten minutes. Check out this project over at TechFreaks.
