I have received an original Xbox from a friend who no longer wanted it, which I believe was soft-modded as it booted to"EvoX 3???" not sure on the version or how it was soft-modded, it even has a white led on the eject button and a custom paint job. His ex-girlfriend had bought it used from a friend of hers so there is no way for me to find out how it was softmodded. It worked perfectly fine, had a copy of Halo (which booted fine from its hdd) and even some emulators on to boot. I was considering possibly upgrading the stock hdd as it had something like 6g of space and planned to load some pre-owned games onto it.
Then comes the moment where I didn't do enough research and began fiddling (bare with me)
I found this thread and began following instructions to update the softmod with HeXen, which didn't seem to install UnleashedX or EvolutionX correctly and after continuous fiddling through other settings couldnt get any dash to boot. I have no trouble booting to the HeXen menu but I'm completely lost as to what to do to even get this back to how it was.
An original copy of Halo 2 booted fine if i turned the system on with it in the drive but after ten minutes of play the screen went black but i could still feel rumbling from the controller. Don't know how relevant this is?
Ultimately I would like to upgrade this systems hdd and play some older games I'd missed out on like KoTOR and Max Payne but I'm a little bummed that I may have ruined this from over tampering without having done the required research. For now I would be happy to get it working again before I purchase any hdd upgrade.
I believe the version of Hexen I got was 0.99b11-22 and im connected through composite cables (its a PAL system aswell btw). Any help would be greatly appreciated.
Ready to cooperate and thanks in advance.
