Games to Softmod your NTSC-J Japan Xbox

Post by 01toubib »

So after much trial and error, I've finally found a winning combination of disks to successfully Soft Mod a Japanese Xbox. So for those of you with really cool Japanese Xboxs looking to turn them region free without opening them, here is your ticket.

Here is the final trial and error list list:

Softmodable Disks:
MechAssault (Asian Version, Not Japan Version!) Part Number X09-24634 (Front of Disk)
Splinter Cell (Asian Version, Not Japan Version!) U78-00001 US012A01 (Front of Disk)

Unable to Softmod: (at least in the traditional way)
MechAssault (USA Version) Does Not work, cannot get past region lock
(Unknown/Untested) MechAssault (Japan Version)
Splinter Cell (USA Version) Does not work, cannot get past region lock
Splinter Cell (Japan Version) Does not work, Freezes at save menu

Here are pictures for reference:

Hope this helps :)

While researching how to mod my Japanese xbox, I came across this post. I was wondering which save exploits you used? Do the NTSC ones meant for the US release work for this mod?

Yes, the NTSC exploits work on these NTSC-J games. That's what I used at least.
