Hi everyone,

I started building a mega thread for the Xbox around 4 months ago, and on/off I have spent long hours working on typing everything up, and following my currently written guides to verify they work 100%.

Within this thread I am also documenting various types of console, from the Dev Prototypes, to Debug and Retail Variants, as well as documenting things like custom mods, types of modchip, and a complete rundown of error codes and fixes for even the stupidest of mistakes.

The *Ultimate* goal is to have a condensed list for each item, and the information is to be well documented, but effective. Less googling, more time doing!

My question to the 7S Community is: What would you like to see in a "Mega Thread"?

With the Death of Eurasia I am also actively compiling all the software and items I can for "Archive Purposes", so if you happen to have anything, please let me know!

What would you like to see
I'd like to see what you have first :smile: I've recently went through the Xbox Apps and Tutorials sections and cleaned up a lot of threads, included new links, reformatted tutorials, etc. so it would be nice to see if you have anything that could update what we already have, especially with regards to the dev stuff. We've recently updated a few threads with xdk and xig to have working links that I haven't seen anywhere else when I was searching for them.

Honestly, you might get better results if many of those were separate guides than 1 big mega thread. And then you can link to each of your threads for users to continue to follow however they see fit. By doing them separate, you are likely to get more people finding your great information through search engines than having 1 big one and people be like "tl;dr".

I think we have a few of those on your list already.
My Rocky5 Tutorial - has the information on the USB with controller, making your own USB female port, and the option to just buy one (either cheap through ali or 5x the price or so through Amazon)
Softmod without a game
I'm sure there are more in the tutorial section but some of them may be out of date at this point with some of the applications being updated like Hexen and XboxHDM. I had planned on updating the XboxHDM thread we have with the newest information (which I think I've added the newest download link for it, just don't know about the process) but if you are going to write it, that would free me up to work on the site and prepare it for v8 :tongue:

Overall, your list looks amazing and am looking forward to seeing what you have to say! I do recommend separate threads but ultimately, it's up to you :smile: Be sure to tag me in the post when you make it!! And sorry about not being able to PM me...I got too many people PM'ing me about hosting modded lobbies or doing stuff for GTA that I just closed it off so I could be more productive than look like an a**hole for not answering people if I can't help bc I don't do any of that cheating stuff lol

Thanks for your input AzzidReign AzzidReign ! Blessed by your presence :tongue:

I'd be happy to take over the "Softmod without a game" Tutorial, Now a days it's possible to softmod using a IDE to USB converter. Wayyyy easier than the old hanging a hdd out the side of an old PC method :tongue:

The Softmod guides and other items I am doing, I am making my own iterations of the software. I'm crediting Rocky5 since I am modifying/simplifying his mod which is the cleanest by far, I just think that the amount of options for everyone makes them go TL;DR and thats how we end up with half bricked or broken mods and people complaining that it didn't work!

P.S, The GTA Mods thing was funny, but I totally would have done the same thing lmao
