Post subject: Softmod Installer Deluxe 4 Released!
Reply with quote
 
That's right, you read right, it's released and can be found on the VIP area to all of you, now there shouldn't be any bugs, but if there's any, please report to DJB, Me, Pirrup, Forahobby, or better yet, this thread.

This is fully supported here and in the VIP chat, so to all that need help, advice or anything on it, please look for us, we will be here.

As you all know, SID 4 is part of a new breed of softmods, taking full advantage of modern tools, patchers, exploits that are created by their respectful makers.

What is has changed from SID 3 to SID4?

Basicly everything, you'll get more "to the point" installing options, more flexibility, you choose if you want to single boot to just load mod and go on with your fun, or have dual boot to either boot gamesave, or boot to retail mode to go on xbox live using all new Ndure (Ndure was previouly created by other ppl, this is not an invention here, and some credits will go to Kingroach from XS, since his files were used for reference.

Features:
-NTSC, PAL support.
-ShadowC drive (used on all by default)
-Virtual EEPROM (used on all by default)
-Unofficial Nkpatcher 11 (used, and exploted to the max!)

So what do you get on this release?

The following Options will be aviable, yet it's restrictions will be mentioned.

1.- choice of boots?
-single boot/dash. Simply boot your softmod, as easy as it is.
-dual boot/open=gamesave. Closed tray will load softmod while open will load SID4 Menu (no safety mounts)
-dual boot/open=retail(ndure). Closed tray will load softmod while open will load in retail state, patching back Microsoft key, allowing you to pop in an original xbox live! enabled game and go safely online.

Ok, the following will explain a bit of it's works, and how your gonna look at your choices.

1.- First of all and must, you will have to backup eeprom with the option from menu. If you dont' do this installation WILL NOT succeed, and it's scripted to do so, so please don't comeback saying, i got an error.
Please read onscreen directions and you'll be fine.

2.- Must have a retail MS Backup done. Why?, if you don't have a Retail, Non-modded MS backup done, you won't be able to install any softmod, backup modded C, nor uninstall softmod, this is done for the installer to complete task without errors, and making sure you get the correct result.

3.- SID 4 comes with smart scripting done by me. Example: Will not install if your eeprom and MS backups aren't found. When backing up your MS dash, if will make sure it's not modded, or else you can't backup, since it's no longer retail, will make sure MS backup is present before doing changes or deleting all files on C to install softmod, will ask you, warn you, and message you, on most of the task that must be, or need to be completed.

Now to the SuperFeatures that makes SID 4 the best softmod in Existance.
-when you run your softmod, led will be RED, this indicated that softmod is active.
-when you run SID 4 Installer Menu, your led will be ORANGE, this is so you know what's running.
-When you are in retail mode (Ndure or not modded), than it's just standard green.
-when leds cycle colors, is either your AV cable is not on, or dash targets aren't found.

When the dashboard targets aren't found, it will boot to rescuedash\default.xbe, allowing all mounts to be inactive, so if you see this cycle, please take out any discs you migth have, and do what you get on screen, so you can restore your dashboard. If you ever get this is cause you either deleted you dashboard, renamed it, or formated your hdd, which is not good to do.

*SID 4 Softmods are made that if you format your HDD, you won't loose valuable files on true C drive, and have to hotswap to rescue*

-Virtual EEPROM is enabled with the following features.
This is why you must backup your eeprom upon installing your softmod, cause then we take your reall eeprom backup, copy it, and patch it for the use of nkpatcher 11 system, to mount it, so when ever an application calls for xbox eeprom, it will load from file, and not your real eeprom, since we patch the eeprom to null hdd key, and xbox live key, and other important info, tools like Config Magic fail to unlock your hdd, in this case making sure you don't accidently end up with "ERROR 05".

*SID 4 will automaticly do this for you, but you must make sure you choose your Region on Menu Select.

If your in the US, CANADA, MEXICO, you should be NTSC, If your elsewhere, your most likely to be PAL, JAPAN could be NTSC, while UK, and AUSTRALIA is PAL*


-You get to choose between Evox and UnleashX as Dashboards.

Now there's more to be said, but i'm sure it's stated elsewhere, so here are the links to more info on what SID 4 is capable of. Enjoy.

A NEW BREED OF SOFTMODS

DOWNLOAD SID 4 V.I.P.: http://www.xbox-hq.com/html/downloadvip-file-1060.html&title=Softmod%20Installer%20Deluxe%204
*Hotswap Installer Deluxe 1, should be comming out really soon*

QUICK EDIT: SID4 will only support 3 dash tagets, e:\dash\default.xbe, e:\dashboard\default.xbe and e:\evoxdash.xbe, so make sure when you use a disc to install you dashboard, choose E, now using AID, make sure you install to E:\evoxdash.xbe Razz

yes it can, but remember that Microsoft takes your eeprom, hdd serial number, and other important info from your xbox, so if your gonna use an xbox for live, make sure you make that account AFTER YOU INSTALL NEW HDD, cause if you use xbox live with stock drive, then upgrade, Microsoft will detect that the eeprom doesn't match the new hdd serial generated, and that's modded enough for them even if you run retail.

You may also get a new eeprom, and flash it (while runnig no virtual eeprom with SID 4, or other softmods that support it).

so, i guess this explains a bit more.

Post subject: Will SID 4 be made available to non-VIP members?
Reply with quote
 
I realize that $10 USD is small amount to pay for such a valuable service, but I would still like to know if SID 4 will be made available to non-members as was done for SID 3.(Through different channels other than direct download.) Also, do you know if it will be included in the new version of Auto-Installer Deluxe?

PS thanks for the great work. I have managed to successfully softmod three of my friends xboxes using SID 3. The ironic thing is that I don't even own an xbox myself. Sad Just goes to show you what a great progam you have made.

I currently have my box running SID 4 at the moment.

I tried out something the other day:

* Backed up my PAL Eeprom with SID 4
* Once SID 4 was fully installed, I turned my modchip on and used Enigmah NTSC-PAL to set my eeprom to NTSC

Now, when I boot the softmod I have PAL, and when I boot the chip I have NTSC.

Pretty freakin' awsome hey? Very Happy

Tried SID4 and Disc.iso out last night. Great work Knave :Very Happy: :Very Happy: :Very Happy: Now I don't have to edit ini files to make user friendly menus for other peeps boxes. I'll like the retail boot option. You taken softmodding to a new level :Twisted Evil:

One question though, how can I format the f: partition on a stock drive? I got as far as creating it, but can't seem to format it.
