    So I have a memory card with the splinter cell saves on and a copy of the original splinter cell. From what I understand once I load the linux save I will have the option of installing eithe EvoX or unleash but what i really want to be able to do is use XBMC. What do Ihave to do to be able to do this? Also if

    I have XBMC installed can I still use Xbox live? If so how?:thumbsup:

    Here's the gist of it:

    How to Enable High Definition on your Unmodded Xbox (PAL)


    Note: This is not a hack for playing copied games, you need (EDIT: Randall Flagg - We don't talk about playing copied games at Xbox World) This is simply a tutorial on how to enable High Definition.

    Requirements:

    • Original copy of MechAssault or Splinter Cell
    • An Xbox Memory Card or an Xbox Action Replay or Mega-X-Key device.
    • A High Definition compatible TV, Plasma Screen or Projector
    • An Advanced High Definition AV pack, Original Microsoft or 3rd Party.


    Basically what you need is an original copy of MechAssault or Splinter Cell (not the 'Classics' version). Some non ‘Classic' versions also do not work so you need to find the right version of the disc. You can tell by looking at the code engraved on the readable side of the game disc (see below).

    MECHASSAULT CODE: MS02301L
    SPLINTER CELL CODE: US0121OE-L1 1E

    Using the GameSave File:

    What you need is a Memory Card and the means to place the GameSave files from your PC to the Xbox Memory Card. One way is to purchase something like the Mega-X-Key or Xbox Action Replay. These are devices specially made for people who want to download other people's Save Games or Cheats and use them on their own Xbox. Another way is to buy an Xbox Controller-to-USB cable from eBay (or make one). With the right Windows drivers this turns your Xbox Controller (Duke or S) into PC Controller. It also turns the Memory Card slots on the controller into what Windows calls a MASS STORAGE DEVICE (USB). Then you can access a Memory Card plugged into your controller from the PC using the free software that comes with Mega-X-Key or Xbox Action Replay.

    Getting the GameSave on your Unmodded Xbox:

    Before copying the hacked GameSave to your Xbox you need to delete any GameSaves that are already on the Xbox hdd. Meaning GameSaves for MechAssault and Splinter Cell only, not every other GameSave on your Xbox. This can all be done via the Xbox Dashboard. Then you can begin copying your new ‘hacked' GameSave across to your Xbox hdd. Once this is done you are good to go.



    For MechAssault insert disc and load the game. Once in the main menu click on ‘Campaign' and then select ‘Run Linux'. If you've done everything correctly you should see the EvolutionX dashboard and you have successfully modded your Xbox without a modchip! Congratulations!!

    For Splinter Cell load up the game, choose "Start Game", select the profile "LINUX" Choose "Check Points" (not "Levels". It causes the screen to turn white and freeze) If you've done everything correctly you should see the EvolutionX dashboard and you have successfully modded your Xbox without a modchip!

    Congratulations!!

    High Definition:

    Now it's time to enable High Definition! Again please note you must have a TV, Plasma Screen or Projector that is High Definition compatible for this to work. You also need the Advanced High Definition AV pack, original M$ or 3rd Party.
    First you need to load up your new EvolutionX dashboard. Once in navigate to the Apps section and select ‘Enigmah Video Mode Switchdisc'. Use the B button to change the video mode to NTSC. If your having trouble watch me do it with my Splinter Cell GameSave here. Now turn off your Xbox and turn it back on again without a disc in it.

    You should now be viewing the Xbox Dashboard in NTSC video mode. All you need to do now is navigate to Video settings under ‘Settings' and turn on 480p, 720p and 1080i.



    That's it your done! You now have a High Definition Xbox, congratulations!

    If you have the latest version of the Xbox Dashboard (5960 or above) then you can view the Xbox Dashboard in 480p by simply holding down the two rear triggers and the two thumb stick buttons all together at the same time. You can also reverse this by simply holding the same buttons down again.

    Ok thanks for the help. But how do I go on live after I've done this. How do you reboot to the original dashboard so that live doesn't disable you account?

    Your xbox live will not be affected by this mod, you can use it as before.
