There's not much advantages directly for Xbox games and emulators.
The big advantages are the ease of installing a new hard disk drive just using an installer CD/DVD, the HDD can be left unlocked and it's easier to recover in case of a problem.
You can also remove the flubber (the noisy animation when you start the Xbox), edit the colors add custom logos etc.
The other advantages are a bit more niche, RAM upgrade, debug etc.

Only v1.0-1.5 can be flashed, v1.6 cannot be flashed, it also require soldering write enabling points (and a jumper wire for Sharp TSOP's) on the motherboard.

If you have decent electronic and soldering skills, go head and TSOP it, else you are just fine as is. :)
