Ok, so try and follow me here, as this is a baffling issue.
I got an Xbox from a freind, came equipped with EvoX latest release. Main menu had Games, Emus etc directories. i wanted to make XBMC my main dash, so i fired up Auto Installer Deluxe 4.50, proceeded to install the dash as i know how. reboot...same ole evox. i went ahead and nervously formatted C and E folders. restarted, evox pops up, this time with NO directories at all. all i have is Launch DVD and Settings.
Now, i was baffled as to how in the world is evox even still here when i formatted all the folders? people tell me that my xbox is obviously Hard-modded, and not Soft-modded. but its obviously reading from the C or E drives as now my directories to my games and emus are gone. however, when i used the installer disc to install any dash, including evox, nothing happens. the menu options don't come back...nor does any of the dashboards i install boot up. same old evox.
My original goal was to get XBMC as default, but now i just want my box to have the games dir and emu dir back. now you may say, like many others have said....install the dash and make sure evox.ini file is setup properly. done that, my games folder is in F:/Games/ and that's what the ini file says it should be...but yet it still doesn't show up on menu.
Someone mentioned to me that it seems my dashboard [evox] must be on a hidden partition. hence the reason i cannot install any other dash or modify evo files.
Im going out of my mind here. i dont know what mod-chip this guy installed, haven't been able to open box yet either...but i dunno if that will help.
is it possible he FLASHED the evo files? i cannot see any hidden partitions no matter what program i use. i wiped my entire drive to make sure i removed any trace of evo [was nervous too] and when i rebooted, evox pops right back up. if it was a softmod, like i have owned in the past, then its easy...install dash from installer disc, or rename this file to that etc. done. tried it all, and same ole evox with no menu options pops up again and again.
I wasn't thinking to FTP to it before using installer to format. then i would have been able to see how the structure of files was and could replicate it. but i didn't. it boots backup dvd's, and i can use the installer disc to boot the emus/apps/games and i can FTP to PC still. as of this second, my C, E and F folders are slap empty, nothing in them. yet when i reboot, evox still comes up.
Any help will be much appreciated. but i have ruled out that installing a dash thru FTP, renaming this .xbe file to that doesn't do crap. i must access this hidden area where this evox is installed, and don't know how.
