Nice man. Hows the Xecuter 3? I have a 2.1 Lite Plus. Old old stuff. Still works.

Could you help me out on Evox and installing a bigger HD? I'm having one hell of a time with it. =/

yes you can open your xbox up by using a t-15 torx screw driver and on the bottom take of the pads and there will be screws, un screw those and there is one or 2 under the stickers i dont know which one so u will have to find out, then the top comes off easy. just DO NOT TOUCH THE POWER SUPPLY UNLESS THE XBOX HAS BEEN OFF FOR A FEW DAYS it will shock the hell outta ya, its happened to me too many times.

it shocks you because of the capacitor. in many modern electronics a capacitor holds a charge for quick power-on. theres a way to discharge the capacitor charge but im not sure how.

oh ya and in some devices(large screen tv's) the charge can be lethal

Discharge a capacitor by letting it sit for a day or so, unplugged. Sometimes longer for larger capacitors.

A quick and dirty way would be to short them with a screwdriver blade or so forth, but I wouldn't recommend that for anything you care about. Shorting them with a bleeding resistor is a much better way, but you would need one that is rated for the voltage and current it will face, and you might very well get shocked trying to attach it.
