Best x360 to hack –
I'm thinking about buying a xbox 360 and selling my second ps3. I was wondering which one of the x360 is the most reliable and easiest to hack. thanx you in advance.
All of the "Fat" 360's are hackable to let you play copied games burned to a DL-DVD. The older the model, the easier it is to hack.

Older 360's with BenQ, hitachi and Samsung drives are all easily hacked but you don't want a hitachi as their custome firmware is no longer updated.
So, for ease of use, you want to find a Samsung or a BenQ 360, preferably a BenQ as they're more recent (and thus more reliable).
To cut a long story short, if you want a reliable 360, get as new a fat model as you can.
The "slim" 360's will be hackable soon, but there's 2 types of drive and one is much easier to do than the other, but it's all variable and there's no time frame for this.
Now this is the interesting bit - if you want to REALLY hack the 360, you'll want to get one you can "JTAG". THis is basically like jailbreaking the 360 - you can do a LOT more (play games off the HDD, free DLC, homebrew, arcade games, etc. but it DOES involve soldering and you have to find a 360 that hasn't been manufacturered after July 2009, hasn't been back to Microsoft after this date and hasn't been online after this date (august 09 dashboard fixes the exploit required). If you don't care for live, get a JTAG, they are the business. Your best bet for this would be to just get a pre-jtag'd box.
