The Softmod question..again

Post by windy » Tue Jan 11, 2005 1:01 pm

How come several topics on the forum suggest that installing gentoox on a softmodded xbox is possible but the MCEv1.1 manual states that a modchip is neccessary?

Is discussion of this not allowed becasue there is some illegal step involved in getting it to work with a softmod? Surely something like UXE running Cromwell is not illegal? I can see from the instructions that the installation tries to flash Cromwell to a modchip, is there a way to ignore this step?

I think softmod support would encourage a lot more people to try Gentoox as softmodding has become a lot more easy these days. I dont know much about linux but as I only have a PC at work, my only option is to use my xbox to try it! I will be trying the other xbox linux distributions but Gentoox MCE sounds perfect for my needs.

BECAUSE UXE is capable of running stuff other than xromwell, it is illegal in my eyes and wont be discussed, sorry.
