It sounds as though your Xbox might be softmodded, but you need to do a bit more checking to be certain. Get hold of HeXEn (Google Heimdall's Xbox Engineering Disc, burn it to DVD-R at 4x or slower). Cold boot with it, the Xbox will boot, the LED turns red, 40 seconds later the menu will appear. Use the file manager (under Xbox Admin) to have a look at the C partition, and post a list of the files and directories in the root of the C partition.
Saw your engineering disc mentioned in another thread and was going to download it.
Is Demonoid a safe place to download it?
It could also be TSOPed. Xbatpeople have you actually tried to open it to see if there is an actual chip in there? If so take a photo and upload it but I would get someone else to do it if you don't know what you are doing.
I have an unmodified Xbox that went black screen coma on me that I have taken apart. So I am familiar with the innards, but I was hoping to find out which mod without opening it. If I have to open it then I guess I will.
Most stores will only deal with sealed units...would indicate softmod..
No help there. This store owner proudly states that he opens and fixes them all the time. He opened and fixed the drawer on the one I bought because it was the last modded one he had in stock.
