replacing the caps on the xbox is a real PITA from my experience. there is a massive grounding plane in one of the layers. If you can swap out the caps then go for it, should be cheap like maybe a few bucks and if it works it works. reflows are only good for a few months at best to begin with. I'd just as soon start looking to get a slim so you have an xbox that will last more than a year or two

As Heimdall said (guy's a legend, seriously he's awesome) backing up your EEPROM is the absolute most important thing to do at this point. They *are* recoverable without a working hard drive, but you will be looking at doing a bit of soldering or purchasing on ebay. It's not the easiest thing in the world to do.

As T2Steve says, to help you work out what to do with it we need to know how your Xbox is modded. If the screws on the bottom haven't been removed then it's almost certainly a softmod.

you need to get into FTP in a big way to make this worth while. Your xbox may be on its last legs, I am guessing that it has a 10 GB hard drive, which means it is probably running a stock hard drive. either way, the drive is dying if you hear it clicking. Good news though, you can backup pretty much everything and setup a new hard drive for it (which I would recommend since it's clicking)...

I believe it is, but i'd dare to ask if you are planning on buying an offline only xbox, why not just get a mod chip for it and ignore worries about content..

Oh also - very important - if this box hasn't been online in a looooong time and is still on the "blades" firmware for the love of god don't update it. You can JTAG that bastard and it will have a "real" mod

Does it play a retail game disc? It could be that it was firmware flashed at one point years ago then it received the dashboard update that flashed it back to a newer stock firmware.
