The best way of modifying the Xbox 360 is to flash the DVD controller chip. There is little point in adding a seperate chip for this as Microsoft are constantly covering the points needed for soldering a seperate chip on the pcb's.

Can I play Xbox~Live when my Xbox-360 is flashed?

The simple answer is yes you can. You have to be careful though becasue Microsoft will look at the game saves on you hard drive. If you have been playing a game that is not yet released in your region, they will ban the xbox from Live.

If this happens you can just sell the banned box and buy a new one to access live again.


If you want to save money on postage, you can remove the Xbox DVD drive and send us that. Below is an instructional video on removing the DVD drive.

To play this perfectly legal backup you require the installation of a Modchip, or Modified Firmware. We provide Modchip services for this purpose. On certain consoles the game region restriction is also defeated. This allows you to play legally purchased foreign games from different regions.

Playbackups Xbox 360 flashing service is designed to allow perfectly legal backups of your original games to play. It is not illegal to buy these games. It is not illegal to download the games either if you already own the original. It is not illegal to flash the Xbox 360.
