Kevin's Xbox mods
Monday, March 31: Install an Xbox mod chip
Before you can truly unleash the power of the Xbox, you need to install a mod chip. Mod chips allow your Xbox to run unsigned code, which makes it possible to run all types of third-party applications.
Tuesday, April 1: EvolutionX
Now that the mod chip is installed, it's time to start making some changes. EvolutionX is the most popular Xbox dashboard replacement. It turns your Xbox into a FTP/Telnet server.
The Xbox's current hard drive just isn't going to cut it. We need space! Space to backup your games, MP3s, movies, and more. Time to slap in a 120GB Maxtor hard drive.
Xbox Media Player
You have media, now let your Xbox play it. How about playing DivX, XVID, WMA, WMV, ASF, BivX, MPEG4, MPEG2, VOB, AVI, ShoutCast, Icecast, and MP3s, all on your Xbox? We'll show you how.
Back those games up
You never know when you might accidentally scratch an Xbox game disc. It's time to back them up, put them away, and run them from your hard drive.
