Potentially dumb question
Does cutting Xs in the tip of jacketed soft points make the round perform like a hollow point? Or does it even do anything different at all?
Does not do anything. Bullet designers would have done this from the factory if it was an effective way to make the bullet expand better/more.
Short answer is no, it does not make the bullet perform like a hollowpoint. It will probably make the bullet separate and come apart depending on what medium it's trying to go through, which could loosely be construed as similar to a hollowpoint. Factory hollowpoints are extremely engineered to do what they are supposed to do (depending upon the applications).
All good points. As i read them i was thinking "duuuhh" . (Exactly why i called it a dumb question) lol. Didnt think it did anything but i was never asked before. Didnt have an honest answer.
The bullets may not behave like hollow points, however they do wonders on vampires according to Quentin Tarantino

Was told by advanced tactical defense instructor Never alter a factory round for self-defense,or use reload. If the law thinks of your action as questionable it will be held against you. Pennsylvania
