Just bought a used xbox (pal v1.2), softmodded it, and upgraded the hard drive.
I tried to install Indy car 2005 on the hd using ftp. It didn't work, and I found later I needed to patch default.xbe (bought the box only 1 week ago ... noob )
Without the patch however, it did go to the title screen of this game, and told me the disc was dirty, blah blah.
I then tried to burn it and boot the box with it. The box hung on the xbox logo.
I tried again to run it from hard drive, but every time I try to run it, it doesn't go to title screen anymore, but instead restart unleashX !
I tried for two days (including wiping out completely the drive, reinstalling it, reinstalling the game many times, I can't manage to start the game. If this was only for the game, I wouldn't mind, but I'm afraid booting on the dvd ran dashupdate.xbe (I didn't know at this moment I needed to fill the c drive to prevent update...)
Here is what afraid me the most :
Before softmodding, MS Dashboard gave me 5101 and 5960 as versions.
Now, it gives me 5838 and 5960 !
Does this mean the kernel went updated ?
Would it causes any harm or incompatibility ?
Or is it the result of the softmodding that makes ms dash think it is a 5838 ?
Please help, I can't afford a new xbox
Thanks for all...
