Posted: Thu Dec 06, 2007 7:58 pm Post subject: Xbox EEPROM Question
I have installed and tried latest ExoX and Anodx Dashboards.
Using the X3 3.03 flash, I can network flash as needed.
For some reason, I can't see anything when I FTP to either Dashboard. The server list is empty. Locking or unlocking doesn't seem to make a difference.
I want to be able to take the old drive backup and various files and put them on the larger drive via FTP. Or backup data on a removable drive.
Also, my EEPROM needs to be flashed ( flashing RED LEDs ), but it seems my backup is no good. Does anyone have an EEPROM fix or a backup from a 1.6b they can send me?
I have searched for answers, but where can I get more detailed info on these dashes.
The dashes seem to work OK, but launching Apps etc... seems to hang. Games from DVD work fine.
After 5 different FTP applications, FlashFXP was the only one to work.
After using Win Command line FTP, I realised it must be an application issue, even after playing with all the settings.
As far as the EEPROM goes, it seems that X3 for 3ce allows for backup and restoring of the EEPROM. I made a backup last night. In my tired state, I might have accidentally done a restore that didn't work.
Now I get the blinking RED LEDs in the original MS dash boot only( when bypassing the mod).
Some Dashes also seem to have EEPROM utilities and I did find an old EEPROM fix on the net, but it is old and doesn't produce a valid 256k bin.
FYI: for those other newbies with 3CE issues.
As far as the Xecuter 3ce, I got it with the main bank empty AND the backup empty. It took a while to go through the combinations to find that bank 2 1M had valid code in it ( I did not find any Docs syaing you have to start with bank 2 ). Although the seller said nothing to do, I did manage to use the X3 FlashBios 3.03 to write a 256k version of the FlashBios 3.03 to the backup ROM ( so it must be writable and not a ROM ). Now I do get the FlashBios 3.03 when I press both the power and Eject.
If someone with a version 1.6b made a backup of the EEPROM, I could actually see if it does work. I suspect it might.
Thanks for the quick reply,

Welcome to the HQ man and im sure if the xbox can be fixed we can help you do it.
The main prob here is you cant use an eeprom from any other xbox and you cant falsh an eeprom.
You said that the main prob is no ftp so i need a little info to help you, do you have a chip or softmod?
Do you have a router?
Do you use a static ip or DHCP?

you can flash EEPROMs from other xboxes but only like versions. Which FTP client are you using to connect to the xbox?
Try using CoreFTP
