My friend just recently gave me his softmodded xbox because of this error 21. I have looked everywhere for a solution, and my luck probably missed the one that would save the xbox, but none have worked so far. Someone even suggested using the movie van helsing because of some game demo that is supposed to launch before the ms dash or something YeAH it didnt work either. I tried putting the game used to softmod it in to see if it would boot up. It wont let me ftp to it.

Soft mod - mech assault exploit UNLEASH X SID 5.01

cant get a model and year because its scatched off

I hope i have provided enough info to help who ever is reading this and i hope some one can help me out.

I have had that error before, that dashboard got messed up somehow, but it would still let me boot games (i used splinter cell exploit) but for me to completely fix i had to format and start over..

i would use xbhdm found here http://www.xbox-hq.com/html/download-file-857.html just read the text files that come with it, they will tell you how to use it, you will also need the dashboard files, and the hard drive key to lock/unlock it, or use the hotswap method, i never did it that way tho

yes they are specific for each xbox eeprom, if you have the eeprom backup on your computer for the xbox that is broken that will make it much easier
