    I'm Pretty sure my xbox has a virus. I used action replay to "run linux" and the linux file has F*&^ed up my xbox. Now my xbox dash wont work. This thing won't let me delete it either or let my xbox return back to normal. The worst part about it is the modded dash when i open it in splinter cell is all in french. I may sound like a newb to some of u guys but i don't really care cuz im pissed.

    IF SOMONE WANTS A CHALLENGE HELP ME!!!!!!

    a)there is no virus that will run on the xbox.
    b)get a real mod chip and stop being cheap. once you have installed the damn thing, use slayers to re-format the drive, it'll fix it for sure.
    99% of the xbox problems on the site are from cheap ass softmodders.

    although i may have been a little less harsh, the above is correct.
    The problem with a softmodded Xbox is when things go wrong they are really hard to fix. So now i think you have 2 options.
    1. use the hotswap method to take the hard drive from the Xbox and put it into your PC then use XboxHDM to rebuild it back to retail, then softmod it all over again and hope for better luck (not to mention this can be a dangerous process if done wrong)

    2. get a modchip installed like the DuoX2 which is about $20 plus the install and then use Slayer 2.7 Final to format the hard drive and reinstall a ton of great programs.

    Trust me, everything you need to work with back up games on the 360 is no easier to learn.
    Dual Layer discs, special DVD-Rom drives to read original discs on the PC, flashing drives, special programs, patching security sectors, and so on.....

    no... i don't mean mod a 360 i mean just buy one. I wouldn't risk screwing up a 360 by trying to mod it.

    sorry, have a modchip so i never had to hotswap.

    And modding a 360 is half the reson for getting one, unless of course your rich enough for $60 games.
