Hello, considering that a softmod is a modification that runs in software, software that you have erased from the drive! I am guessing it is very borked.
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.
