    Hi guys,

    Spent a few hours last night softmodding my Xbox with the hotswap method. A lot of the materials were out of date, so I had to piece a few things together, but it was pretty simple. The ndure installer (I used the latest, with the correct kernel version) was saying that the space was full, so I used option 2 - replace C drive with ndure. Of course, I backed up my C drive beforehand.

    But now, the Xbox won't go to the dashboard. It won't reach the dashboard or anything similar (I've heard it might be supposed to go something called unleashX? not sure), it just hangs as the green splash screen with the "X." It still boots retail games just fine and still has all the data (savegames) on the hard drive (woot), so I must be doing something right.

    Is there any way that I can get it back? Perhaps use ndure to restore my C drive then delete files from the drive using the dashboard and re-install using method 1 (instead of 2)?

    ANY help provided would be amazing, this seems to be the last bastion for Xbox modding support. Even if you can just help me get back to the stock dashboard it would be a start.

    Thanks so much for reading.

    Install a modchip.
    Only way to restore your old xbox at this moment.

    When you installed it, load up Slayers Evox installer and install a fresh C:

    Your hard drive might not get unlocked in the boot process. I don't even really see how that could happen, but as DinoScene said you would need to install a mod chip or get a new xbox. If you're no good at installing them places like good will or value village have them for dirt cheap, got mine for 7 bucks.
