    It would probably help if you gave a little more details about what you did, which programs you used and if you deviated at all from a standard installation routine.

    Softmod huh. While I agree with xist that we would appreciate some more info:
    My guess is you did not copy both files of the softmod, there is one small file that triggers the hack and another that is the actual installer/base files.
    A standard copy tends to only select the first file for whatever reason.

    Failing that grab something called slayer's evox auto install.

    Failing that:

    try to play a game which has an update (even things the star wars 3 bonus DVD has a demo for battlefront which will update your xbox, i know because i unwittingly wiped my softmod by playing it LOL) - if you can get it to update it will restore the xbox to it's normal state then you can redo the softmod

    i would recommend downloading a copy of the AID disc, once you've got the softmod installed run it and it'll do the hard work of installing xbmc and emulators/programs
