I just bought an unmodded PAL Xbox and want to switch the console to NTSC using Enigmah to unlock the high definition options.
While I was looking for a way to do this without installing a softmod I found this very old thread on Xbox world australia.
Basically the method described there is exactly what I want, but of course all the download links are offline.
Is there anybody that still has the savegame for Splinter Cell that was hosted there or one that works the same way?
I would really appreciate it if someone could upload or send this to me.
That old article seems to be flawed and misleading in several ways.
What is described IS softmodding. Maybe there was some old softmod that automatically installed. No idea about this but whatever it still must be softmoding the console.
With any recent Splintercell exploit/installer game saves following that article would get you to the softmod INSTALLER dash first. Then you actually have to install the softmod.
There are NTSC Video Settings available in the installer dash menus but these are for the video playback mode, they won't region change the console. That is what you need to get access to to the NTSC dash only ED/HD options.
With all the softmods I've used the installer dash is basically a modified UnleashX one not EvolutionX. The important thing is that because it is an installer dash there is no Apps menu option containing the Enigmah region changer (to swap from PAL to NTSC) refered too. You only get that post softmod.
I think that you can region change the Xbox and then uninstall the softmod but it seems a bit pointless. A softmodded Xbox gives you access to the MS dash from the menus and you can even set up a dual boot to the MS dash with some softmods.
Safer than that is to install a softmod with the recommended Shadow C protection then, using the UnleashX dash menu options, set up controller or remote handset button shortcuts.
What that will do is, simply by holding down the appropriate button on boot/reboot, load the MS dash or any other dash, app, game or emulator you have assigned.

We have loads of tutorials and other content around the site which should help you understand the softmodding process.
