I've just bought from a Guy who doesn't know nothing. So I want to figure it out.

Historic:
1. First thing, by the look of it, and confirmed in the system dash, it is 1.6 mobo. So, no removing any capacitors, right?
2. I have opened it and it have a aladin chip installed (It means that is hardmoded, right? the light on the chip are red on, but no watermark on splash screen)
3. it came with xbmc, but not the good one (xbmc4gamers). I don't know how to change the default dash.
4. Hdd partitions is strange to understand: there's a games folders on f:. On g: have nothing, and 200gb free that i can't use. In xbox360rgh I configure freestyledash to look into specific folders. In ogxbox is the same? i can have 2+ game folder locations? ANy naming schemes or folder structures?
5. Well, I tried to find default xbe that load the xbmc, changed the file for my shortcut maked one with the xbe shortcut maker, and the xbox didn't boot anymore, error 21.
6. Strange is: I've used fatxplorer to connect hdd on my windows, found the file I had changed, and replaced by the original, but xbox boot turns out damn slow. I dont know if is the cheap ide/sata adapter, or corrupted dash.
7. I'm downloading hexen disc to try boot from there, i hope it works. I will try install dash from the disc.
8. well, suceeded in booting, hexen disc. I want to reformat/clean the whole HDD, and put my own games and apps/emulators in xbmc4gamers. How to do it without breaking my console?

For me, anyone who can use equivalents to explain how things work here, it can be easy. I'm used to modding terms on the wii, 3ds, switch, wiiU and x360.


I've got trough using hexen, new disc, formating c, e, f.

Then it returned back to hexen disc menu, copying files from disc to c: to finish, but got stuck on 48%....

Now xbox wont boot, giving me error 13/14

Iv'e seen that evox logo never appeared before. I dont know if the chip installed and lighst on, is indeed in use...

I bought an original dvd with live enabled game (madden 07), to see if i can recover dashboard. hexen does not load anymore. Will wait some days to arrive, but if any alternative existe, please let me know.

Your in luck that the console is "Mod chipped" and not "Softmodded" download a "Slayers EvoX" ISO,burn that to a blank disc.Power on your Xbox,open the dvd tray and pop in the "Slayers" disc.Now power off the Xbox and re-power it back on,so it can boot from the "Slayers" disc.In the scroll down options,look for and select "Rebuild HDD" and go from there.
The "Slayers" disc will rebuild your HDD and it'll install "EvoX" dashboard for you.

Well, hexen disc worked, but after its process of reconstruct hdd and copy stock files to it, none disc work, neither original ones, hexen or slayerx evox. i think mod chip maybe damaged or anything else. i will took the time tonight to open console and check if installation is ok.

then i will report here.

thanks!

Just to inform, i could'nt revive my console. Slow boot, I have no idea whats have been done.

I've called a tech guy, and its been a couple weeks without any update on the matter.
