So I've had my xbox softmodded for about half a year now with the XBMC dashboard.
Recently when trying to start up the xbox, I've been encountering that screen with the flashing red/green light telling me the xbox is broken in like 10 languages.
After multiple restarts and unplugging/plugging back in, I can usually get the thing to start.
Any idea what could be causing this? My first guess is maybe the hard drive (it's quite old).
