Any help coz im about to throw my new xbox out the window ? Got one off here the other week, which was working fine btw, but it booted into unleashx. Tried over the past 2 days to get it to boot straight into XBMC with no joy. I downloaded an iso called Auto Installer Deluxe which looked like it would do everything including the whole softmod side of things from the disk without the need for extra tools. Anyway i tried to do a few changes but towards the end of say copying xbmc to be dash it would fail.
So i tried a format and reset but again it failed... one time i just had a black screen after the green 'flubber' startup. To cut a long story short i have now got it back booting but it goes into a basic EvolutionX screen with only 2 options: Launch Disk and System Settings. Is this the 'original menu' and have i knackered it? I managed to still use ftp by putting in the AID disk that i used, got to file manager, and then opened the default.xbe on C: - which then opens xbmc for me to ftp... but i cannot in any way get the box to boot straight into it.
So then does it sound like i have in any way knackered up the softmod ? Surely and from what ive read if i did then there would be no way of ftping... but then again i am using a kind of boot disk in the form of AID.
Anyone help me or give me some advice. I know zaheer is the wiz on this, and the box originally came through him a sale down the line, but i feel a bit cheeky asking for his number to get help... although im sure he wouldnt mind.
Also is there any way of resetting the box to factory defaults and then using some form of boot disk, like the AID one ive got, to redo the softmod and set it up properly ? Or is using the linux exploit with mem card etc (which i havent got) the only way to do it ?
PS - ZAHEER if you read this - clear your inbox !! ;-)
