Firstly thank you for reading.
I recently was given an original Xbox and decided I wanted to softmod it for an XBMC install.
All went well I found a great tutorial here and decided that the route to follow would be to use Ndure 3.1 and Xboxhdm with the hotswap method.
The softmod worked for a few hours now I seem to be having a lot of issues with it namely the following:
- Softmod works but if shutdown (powered on at wall still) it won't boot the next time, it will just show the xbox logo then flash an orange light on the front and shutdown. Takes about 30 mins to get working with various button combo's on controller or a rebuild of the hard drive using xboxhdm and a reinstall of the softmod to get working again.
- More often than not the power button stops working and the only way to boot the Xbox is by the eject button. Usually after this happens I cannot get back to the softmod at all and have to rebuild the hard drive with Xboxhdm.
Overall I seem to be having a fairly bad time with this and the softmod just doesn't want to stick. Any help would be greatly appriciated.
I have since been able to dump my EEPROM making unlocking and relocking the drive much easier and no need for hotswapping.
