    My 120 GB drive is here and my mod chip will arrive tomorrow. I'm trying to decide if I want to put Linux on there or what exactly I'm going to do with my new found gaming freedom (and what I can actually talk about here that is legal)

    Anyone else have their modded xbox up and running? It worth it?

    I have played on one... It was cool, except it was not reliable. It would sometimes "crash" and such. Not sure if it's because the guy modded it or if it was because he didn't know what he was doing.

    That said, I am not sure it is worth it.

    Well mine broke and Microsoft said it was $79.95 to repair it, so I just paid a little more to upgrade...in my case I think it's very worth it, but you're right, it probably isn't worth it to just get a new xbox then pay almost the same amount again for mods.

    I considered it, but I've got the special edition HALO XBOX and don't want to ruin it.

    I've never even hear of moding an xbox. What else can you get it to do?

    If you put Linux on it it will work just like a PC. You can also store DVDs or games on it to use later without having to have the disc in.

    Can you go on xbox live with a modded box now?
    They used to be able to tell and then they would ban you.

    I don't play xbox live but yes, you can boot with the chip turned off and it's supposed to be undectectable, but I've never done it so who knows.
