After screwing up my xbox (deleted C i thought i screwed up my xbox. turned to xbox-scene.com and a guy on there pointed me around. Heres what you will need to softmod. -An xbox -Access to your hdd. via hotswapping to the pc or a modded box. (hotswap faq: http://forums.xbox-scene.com/index.php?showtopic=332179) -xbox hdm (Used in this guide) -Uxe complete (xbins) - knowlege with xbins, you are going to need it!!!!!!! (http://www.xbox-scene.com/articles/xbins.php) I am not going to teach anyone how to hotswap. you will need to learn elseware. and since i dont know how to copy the files using a modded box, i wont talk about it either. on that note LETS BEGIN!!!!! First thing you will want to do is read the 'readme' in UXE complete. Open the support folder in this package. For the sake of confusion, we will ONLY run 71-fonts-install.bat, then nkpatcher-06-install.bat. THIS IS COMPLETLY NECESSARY (note this is different for LARGER HDDs, refer to the readme) Now open the Linux folder in xbox HDM. You will see a C, and E, folder among others. Open the C: folder and copy all the contents of UXE complete's 'uxe-c-replace' folder. Then open HDM's E folder, and copy UXE Complete's E/ 'root' folder to xbox HDM's E: folder. Now open the xbox HDM folder, and double click 'make-iso-win' This will create an iso burnable to a cd with DVD DECRYPTOR (or another program that burns isos) Now you will want to do gain acces to xboxhdm with the xbox hd's hotswapped to the pc. The first thing we will do is hit 1 then enter. You will see a penguin and a bunch of text. assuming you hotswapped correctly, type 'xboxhd'. it will ask you yes or no. and obviously you will say yes. Now its time to rebuild your HDD. If you dont care about your gamesaves or music thats on your hdd, go to 'rebuild xbox hd from scratch' if you do, go to 'rebuild xbox c partition' and after you do go to xbrowser and copy the root file over to the xbox's E:. Now for the easy part!!!!!! Turn Xbox off, count to 5; turn it back on with no disk in the DVD tray. This should have booted to a black screen with white text. Go to the first option. Congrats!! you now have a modded xbox. You will be able to copy games, play emulators, run unsigned code, and an endless number of apps.
