Welcome!  It's a bit scary.  I felt the same way.  Done a bunch of soft modding and I am at a hobbiest level of soldering ability but when you do the tsop soldering correctly and fire up hexen to flash and it works... you feel like to can do anything.  Huge confidence building.  My advice is don't rush, read up and watch all the you tube vids FIRST, then get to work and GO SLOW.  Especially when flashing it's super easy to click through one of the menus and miss a step or flash the wrong size bios because you were rushing or over-confident.  While you have the board out, it's a good time to clean it up and do the clock capacitor removal and/or the fan upgrade.  (depending on which version of board you have). If you have any questions feel free to ask on here and someone will steer you in the right direction for sure.

      Hello all,

      I just wanted to say a quick hello to all who decide to see this! Modding my Xbox and looking around for information brought me here. This place seems like a good place to settle in and talk. I've had an original Xbox ever since they launched, but never thought to mod it up until a few weeks ago. I think modding out my Dreamcast made me want to explore other consoles as well. This seemed like a great fit and fun route to take.

      .....also questions, I have so many questions ha! I'll bring that to the designated forum spots.

      Thanks, and looking forward to all this.
