I use to make rgh consoles which are essentially consoles that are modded with chips to make them acceptable to hacking. Such as using menus in cod games and zombies, they were quite big back in 2012. They're also known as Trinity consoles or jtag consoles.
I'm all too familiarized with the modding scene. Ever heard of se7ensins? I don't post anymore but my username on there is B-rad. I have close to 4K posts and I joined all the way back on 2007. I still get on from time to time but don't post anymore. I never actually modded a Xbox 360 though which is what that's for. But was a fun time softmodding my original xbox. I was a big poster on 7s back in those days.
