i tried installind sid 3 and it seemed to go alright, but my dashboard won't come up and I get error 21. Also my aid dvd wont boot. I can still get into my softmod menu, but my ms backup seems to be missing. is there anywhere to get the original ms dash? also has xbins gone down or something? the irc channel is invite only and the www site won't come up. thanks in advance.

If you can still get into your softmod menu then try installing the softmod again. Then install one of the dashboards. You should be able to boot the AID disk after that. Then you can load the ms dash back on it.

Alternatively you could try and pop in an xbox live enabled game and it will automatically update the dash. It has worked for me sometimes in the past. You dont have to be connected for it to work.

boot a retail game that has xbox live enabled and choose xbox live, it will detect that you need teh newest version of the dash and update from within the game.

Thanx for all the input guys! But, I finally figured it out. my aid disc wouldn't run because of media compatability issues. And I happened to stumble upon a torrent named "C folder" which is the entire c drive of a retail xbox with the updated dash. So I finally got it all running by ftping the cfolder to my xbox then reinstalling the sid. Then I just ftped my emulator and such to the box. Thanx again for the excellent site and tips from everyone...

Good job......... now this kind of person has a head on there shoulders. Had problems, asked for advice, considered and used whatt he coud. But most important he had an idea of what he was doing and the direction he needed to go to solve the problem. CONGRATS.
