Hellooo everyone,

the day after tomorrow someone's passing by with an Xbox that gives an error:
it doesn't load it's hacked dash anymore (I think it's EvoX dash),

he told my by phone that some information comes up (Evolution X and ip or something, don't remember), but he doesn't get to menu items...

so if ftp connection to pc would not work and if I can't get into MS dash (so I can't put the save game exploit on hdd), how would that be fixable?

hopefully ftp connection will still work...
and if not then I sure hope it's a dual boot softmod, so maybe I can get into MS dash with open tray and transfer save game exploit... (maybe the gamesave exploit from the original softmod are still there, but then it would have to be SplinterCell...)

maybe I can get from inside a game into MS dash? I know that if you have an old MS dash, you can update it with a newer game (like Halo 2), so is it possible to get from inside a game into MS dash?

without the eeprom backup I can't unlock the hdd in worst case scenario...
are there other ways?

wait a minute: I think he told me he had a 160gb hdd... so I'll call him tomorrow and ask him if he has the original hdd (hopefully locked... so I can get the eeprom...)

thanks for any help or tips Very Happy
& wish me luck Rolling Eyes

take care!

If he softmodded it from the jump then u can put in the game he used to exploit and just load into that game and reinstall softmod worst case. U may be able to load AID disc as well and do some fixes.

If you can't get the softmod to boot then you wont be able to run AID.

hmmm, not sure about that,

I seem to recall myself having had an error while AID is installing softmod,
after which I reboot I can't get into menu, but it still starts the AID disc,
not 100% sure (could have been with hardmod),

another question:
if I want to install additional dashboards with AID,
I select Applications - to E - Dashboards (Softmod) - ...

what's the difference between regular Dashboards & those with (Softmod) quoted next? if you have a softmod you have to install the softmod version?
or are those only if you want to boot directly into them, and not as an application?

thanks for your help,

take care (I'll try to do the same Very Happy ) !

Its different because of the bios loader softmod uses.

so you may not install any non-softmod dashboard on a softmodded Xbox,
even not as application?

I was lucky,

it was a XBMC dash that gave an error (black screen with red text),

but it was able to boot AID dvd,
but I installed KingRoachs Ndure-3.1 softmod by ftp,
which comes standard with UnleashX dash in E:/dash,
but he wanted XBMC dash, so thought I read that you just have to copy the XBMC to the E:/dash folder (so with the default.xbe in E:/dash),

to C the shadowC was installed, so normally after first boot to UnleashX I copy the retail MS C to the "empty" shadowC,

but when I did reboot all I get is a black screen!!!
it doesn't load AID dvd, only original games...
and the dual boot does not work, can't get into MS dash with open tray to put the savegames for exploit on.............

please help...........

or do I have to open it up and take the hard drive out?
(I have the backup, eeprom etc),

what would be the easiest way to fix it???

I even tried to install MS dash by trying to go to Xbox Live in a game...
but it gives an error, fails little bit over halfway...

it's a v1.2 Xbox from 2003,
but the kernel in the eeprom backup menu showed 5838,
which I selected to make the C and E files wit Ndure-3.1,
but isn't 5838 the newest kernel, can this older Xbox have that new kernel?
maybe it's the wrong kernel (I've heared that using the wrong kernel can cause not to boot...)

what if I were to clone the C and E partition with Chimp?
(of working v1.0 kernel 4034 or v1.6 kernel 5838 Xbox?)

but will that corrupt the F and G partition?
because it's a 160gb hard drive and may not loose files on F and G...

Never messed with Ndure. I've alwasys used SID. You could try to reinstall softmod with SID. Can u still FTP to XBOX? Worst case u could FTP M$ dash files to XBOX.

Personally, I would just redo the mod... It's probably easier than fixing it in the state it's in... If redoing the mod don't work, you could try getting in to the softmod install screen and FTPing in whatever it's missing.
