    i agree hydraulix. yes it would be cool to mod your xbox bios with a flash chip, but why both when it is easier and cheaper to do it via a mod chip?

    Great minds must think alike.
    I had the Xbox idea just the other day w/o having read any modding info.

    My concern and interest are in using a touchscreen. I want to be able to use the caputer while driving and i can't be messing around with a controller.

    I saw it mentioned but I don't think there was a definantive answer?!?!?!?!

    WILL THE TOUCHSCREEN work on the Xbox AS a touchscreen?
    will the xbox acept the input from the screen?
    what hardware mods are need for adapters and such?
    is there currently drivers and software that will support it?



    the more I think about it, the more I want to use an Xbox.
    too bad about doing GPS and wardriving, that was going to be a side hobby.

    Softmods are cheaper and easier. I spent 22 dollars and had my box running full blast. Admittedly it doesn't have much space as I didn't upgrade the hard drive, but it gets the job done. I just stream my media from my computer.

    On another note, how much does the xbox weigh and is it unnatural for a 13 year old who's 5' 6" to be able to carry it and a seven pound laptop in a backpack pretty well?

    Also, I plan on doing a carbox myself. I just need to get the goddamn screen off of my super nintendo, as I have no money for a new one.
