I know other people have hit this problem in the last month:-
After a particular date in June this year when the SID modded Xbox user sets the date using any dash the Xbox will now always revert back to its earlier install or factory date on reboot and restart.
Apparently its nothing to do with the clock capacitor, it is said to be a SID issue which, for whatever reason, won't maintain any date setting after this June 2020 one.
I tested it and it is seems to be correct - if I set the year to 2019 as long as the clock cap is charged (and present of course) the date will continue to display correctly once set. Changing it to a post June 2020 one and the problem described occurs.
Obvious question: is there any fix for this? It just seems a bit weird that after some apparently random date a SID softmodded Xbox starts having this problem.
If there had to be an expiry for the date setting why wasn't 31.12.2099 used?

I'm not sure why a much larger year wasn't used. However, I believe the problem starts when the date is after June 6, 2019, not 2020. Doesn't really matter.
There's a mindate and maxdate value used to check that the clock data has not been corrupted which will occur if the clock cap has discharged.
Min date is used to reset the clock if the clock data is out of founds - not between the min and max time fields. If so, the clock is reset to the min date/time - midnight March 04, 2007 (00:00:00 20070304).
Not exactly sure how to fix it.
I know that Rocky5's Xbox Softmodding Tool has the max date/time check data set to midnight 1/1/2099.
Welcome to a brand new refreshed version of SID, one of the most popular Softmodding Tools available. Even though all the options remain the same as in 5.11, the installer has been rebuilt from scratch, flushing out a few bugs along the way.
Enjoy this release
What's changed since 5.11
- Exploits rebuilt with NKPatcher 11_U04
- Set initial Clock Date to 2019/01/01
- Set Maximum Clock Date to 2099/06/06
- Fixed issue with RescueDash Installation
- Moved Softmod installation from C:\SID5 to E:\SID
- Added new Xbox-HQ Skin for UnleashX (USB version only) _________________ HQ Network:

The max clock date in ernix.xtf was set to 2019/06/06 as kaos_engr pointed out. I ended up recomiping it with a 2099 date.
Hopefully everything should be all good for you guys now, enjoy
