"Now do I have to run a wire from the xbox to my router or do I have to go out and buy xbox live kit to do this."
You have to connect the xbox directly to the computer in some way (hub, switch, directly with xover, wireless bridge, etc). I would also assume this will essentially ban you from xbox live, is that the case?
I have a question that isn't related to the article but related to modded xboxes. What files are needed by the original xbox dashboard? I know the xboxdash.xbe is the main file, but what else does it use?
