After about 4 hours of getting the hotswap done right to use the ndure, i used a tut. from another website http://www.instructables.com/id/How-to-softmod-your-xbox...for-FREE/ and it went pretty well. But i was getting an error of like not enough space to copy the files over. So eventually i just copied over the files to see if it would work, and sure enough it did. But i found there was a slight issue. The first is the original msdash wouldnt start. Then the fact that there were like 6 different partitions in the drive. There was previously a modchip installed before we bought it but the chip was dead so it got yanked. But it still has one game and some emulators on. I was sorta wondering how i might be able to get it back to like a factory mode maybe fix some issues? Then it wouldnt let me do the FTP, i actually used a tut. from this forum but it wouldnt connect. anyways sorry for the plea for help, just got a little stressed with how it was goin.
