I'm not sure this is a recent softmod. But if it works who cares. Just make sure you didnt use a REALLY old one that suffers from clock loop!

The onboard flash is read only unless you modify the motherboard! PLB (Pheonix BIOS loader) does not flash anything. It patches memory and re-routes BIOS calls to XBIOS.BIN which is loaded into memory in a sort of TSR. Later softmods use NKpatcher. (Details)

It is quite unlikely that it would work on a box with a Xcalibur video encoder.

As I said I am not sure this is a safe softmod. Need to research a bit more. Now that you've got access to your hard drive via FTP it might be worth re-working it with NDure. The last and arguably best softmod.
