Messed Up Xbox Whilst Installing Gentoox
Posted 21 April 2011 - 07:28 PM
Sooooo. Had a blond moment. I went to install GentooX via the HDD (I put it on the Xbox via FTP) and when the installer started I typed "Yes" for initializing the Harddisk. Now I get prompted to contact customer support. I still have a back up of the Eeprom and what not. Did all shit hit the fan? Or can I still recover the system? I modded my system via the Mechassault softmod.

I don't know which version of xbox you have but I am guessing your only route for recovery is a chip or TSOP flash, the latter being cheaper and easier.
Once TSOPed or chipped the exploit is written into the bios allowing for a little extra room for manouvre.
Not knowing much about softmods, I may be wrong about no road to recovery, but I am guessing it is going to take some hardware tinkering to dig it out of this one.

Also, FYI, you can't TSOP flash an Xbox that won't boot a game, so TSOP isn't an option for fixing this Xbox.
