i got an old modded xbox from a friend recently. he hadn't used it for years and it was just collecting dust on a shelf, but the story is that he modded it himself a long time ago and forgot how to operate it. i can't figure it out myself either.
we think the xbox still has a dash and xbmc loaded on it (no clue which dash/version) but we can't figure out how to boot it up. so here's the situation:
there are two switches on the side that are used to turn the modchip on and off. so there are four possible combinations: down/down, up/up, down/up and up/down. each configuration gives a different light. through some preliminary research i've been able to ascertain that i need a solid green light on the modchip. i can boot to the microsoft dash, which gives a flashing green light. when i have a solid green light, however, the xbox powers on but nothing comes up on screen, not even the xbox splash screen.
i haven't been able to try FTPing to the xbox yet cause i currently don't have a router. but will i be able to access the xbox even if it's booted to the ms dashboard?
my friend tells me this modchip is able to be flashed using a boot CD.
so my questions are:
- how do i configure the two switches to boot to the mochip/custom dash?
- is it possible that i could load a custom dash/xbmc from a boot disc?
- if so, what disc do i need/what apps do i need to put on the disc?
any help would be great, thanks in advance!
