Restoration Therapy

This free YouTube Series was inspired by my need to find a way to relieve stress while reducing screen time (ideally). I wanted to work with my hands (and not just on a keyboard) by, in most cases, restoring / upgrading / modifying hardware of any kind that interests me.

The goal with this series is to have a little fun, drink some beer, and work on some hardware all while treating the event as a therapeutic experience to enrich my life and hopefully yours! Main goal: have a little fun!

Original Xbox Softmod & Hard Drive Replacement

Welcome back to another episode of Restoration Therapy. It's been a while since I have posted one of these, but here we go again!

I actually recorded this one a little while ago, but just got around to editing and uploading it.

In this episode I will do a sweet little OG Xbox mod! This is one of my favorite mods to do because (1) It's pretty easy to do, and (2) you get a lot out of your Xbox after you're done. You can do pretty cool stuff like:

* Play back up discs
* Upgrade the original hard drive
* Play games off of the hard drive
* Install custom third-party applications (emulators)

And so much more, I could go on for a while!

If you do decide to do this mod, please make sure to take extreme care in working with the console when it is plugged in, because there is a risk of shock. I AM NOT RESPONSIBLE FOR ANY ACCIDENTS!!

DO THIS AT YOUR OWN RISK
