Hello all. Due to several issues with my softmodded SID4 box, I decided to get hand of another retail box (surprisingly same version) and installed SID5 onto that one to see if it resolve my problems. Well it did Smile. So now my question, how can I easily upgrade my SID4 softmod to SID5 without touching data on E:\ and F:\? Am struggling a bit about how to do it, so let me ask you 1st. The way I think is that I first update the SID4 savegame/installer with the SID5 savegame/installer and boot into SID5. Remove softmod and then followed by a new install. Step 2 makes me already worried. Does that mean already I loose the E and F data? Well, hope someone can help me with this. Cheers, JJ

Welcome to the XBOX-HQ, we hope you enjoy this and all the other HQ sites we have to offer. Very Happy

The second option is the way to go, when you uninstall the soft mod it only effects the C and E drive so back up your T and U data folders so you you will still have all your save files and you should be fine.

(don't forget )If you mounted a virtual C drive with SID4 you will need to unmount it then run the uninstall, and back up the eeprom file to your PC first thing just incase.

Thanks for the reply. I just did it, I thought just give it a shot. Used the AID 4.2 installer disk to remove softmod, which went fine. Copied over the SID5 files, flip flap flop with Splintercell and installed the new softmod. Launched Evox, and voila everything what should be there is there. And yes all the problems are gone. Tada, happy me. THis rocks. Oh BTW after struggling with all kind of USB pendrives etc, I just hooked up my Nokia 3109c with 2Gb microSD, it is bloody compatible. Ok I go on, cheers buddies.
