Default Newb xbox mod questions

sponsored links

 
Totally dumb to the xbox modding scene, so I need some help here.

I can get a tsop flashed w/ about 10 games and the samsung dvd-rom for $240 but I want to make sure it's what I want.

Does tsop flashed mean it has no mod chip?
What are the advantages and disadvantages?

Here's what I want my xbox to do:

Play dvds w/out the remote.
Play all kinds of backups w/ no swap or boot disc.
Be able to put a larger hdd in later.
Put games on the hdd.

Thanks!

jme

You will be fine with the tsop, the only drawbacks are no xbox live (unless you install a switch), and there are other things that a modchip can do but the average gamer wouldn't bother.

actually from the version 1.2 onwards tsop splitting is impossible as there is only room for a single 256k bios file so no xbox live then
