Can I modify my Xbox 360

  • 1

    Place Splinter Cell in the Xbox. Make sure the disc is logo-side-up.

  • 2

    Wait for Splinter Cell to load. Once the main Splinter Cell menu loads, you can proceed.

  • 3

    Select START GAME. It's near the top of the screen.

  • 4

    Select the LINUX profile. This option will be on the left side of the screen.

  • 5

    Select CHECKPOINTS. It's in the top-left corner. Doing so will cause your Xbox to begin flashing erratically; a few seconds later, you should see the softmod menu appear on-screen.

  • 6

    Back up your Xbox. Before you can mod your Xbox, you'll need to create both an Eeprom backup and an MS backup:
    • Select Backup / Restore Features
    • Select Create Eeprom Backup
    • Select Backup Eeprom
    • Scroll down and select Back to Main Menu
    • Select Backup / Restore Features again.
    • Select Create MS Backup
    • Select Yes when prompted.
    • Select OK when prompted.
  • 7

    Return to the main menu. Press the B button on your controller to do so.

  • 8

    Select Install Single Boot Softmod. You'll find this option near the top of the screen.

  • 9

    Select Standard. It's at the top of the menu.
    • If you use HD cables with your Xbox, select Standard for HD instead.
  • 10

    Select a dashboard. The dashboard version you select doesn't matter, and is purely dependent on your preferences.
    • If you don't have a preference, select Install UnleashX Dashboard here.
  • 11

    Select Yes twice when prompted. Doing so causes your Xbox to check for a backup and, as long as there is one, begin installing the mod.

  • 12

    Allow the mod to install. The softmod will begin installing once you select Yes the second time. Keep in mind that this process will take a while.

  • 13

    Select Yes when prompted. Doing so will immediately shut down your Xbox.

  • 14

    Press the "Eject" button. This will both prompt Splinter Cell to eject and turn on your console. Once you've ejected Splinter Cell, your console should load to the modded menu.
