I recently purchased a second xbox which was supposedly chipped. I already own a modded xbox that i modded with a xenium ice mod chip with an upgraded harddrive. The second xbox turned out to be soft modded.
I attempted to use AID to setup xbmc to be the default dash. During this process i messed up the softmod. It would still read games, but i could not get into the dash.
Not knowing that i could use a live enabled game to restore the ms dash, I inserted the softmoded hd into my modded xbox. I ran slayers and attempted to install ms dash 5960. This did not work. I then used the option in slayers to restore it to a stock xbox. This did not work. Now it gives me error 21 and will not boot games.
I then took a pc harddrive i had laying around and used the upgrade harddrive wizard on the xenium modchip to set this up to use in my second xbox. After getting the drive set up and running properly on my modded xbox, I used AID to install a soft mod on the pc harddrive. I plugged the softmodded pc harddrive into unmodded xbox and it did not work.
I have read several tutorials and know that hotswapping may be able to help my problem. I prefer not to do this. Can anyone suggest how i can get either the retail or pc harddrive working in the unmodded xbox. As stated i do have a previously modded xbox that can be used to help resolve this. I’d prefer not to have to purchase another modchip.
