hello! i havent been around lately due to lack of net, and being busy, but i have uber problemo, my xbox has died i think. and i blame xbmc. i was updating my icons to wide icons, and i just went and deleted userdata thumbnails programs as usual and restarted it booted to error code 5 which i havent seen before (unlocked hdd i know) so i turned it of and turned it back on. de nada. it boots the xbox microsoft bit then goes to a black screen and does nothing. i havent got a dvd drive at the moment to try aid, but im going to get my friend to come over and let me use his, to check, at the moment ive taken the hard drive out as it felt very hot, i hope it hasnt fried, and im going to sleep on it, hopefully the clock will reset and ill be able to get to microsoft dash in the morning. any suggestions other wise? its a sad day. my bro only recently got back from living in scotland and we aint gonna have nothing to play tomorrow if its broke! darn!

Damn i hate to hear that man. That sucks. I hope you get everything fixed and hopefully its not the HDD. I'd say if you can get AID to load tomorrow you should be able to get it fixed. Post later and update man. later

Whatever you do don't unplug it for the night, if the clock resets then your screwed. You'll get the endless clock loop and I think the only fix for that is a mod chip.

it was hot, and i just tried booting and listening to the hard drive, i hear a tick tick hmmmmmmmmm tick hmmmmmmmmm tick hmmmmmmmmmmm tick sound, im in shock, its like one of my mates has died.....dread...... the tally stands, in one year im a 360, a psp, and now my modded xbox down, i got a replacement psp so i can play that i guess....... when i borrow a dvd drive hopefully it will all be drama and the dash is just messed up. wow the ramifications of this are annoying, no media streaming, no emulators, and right now replacing it is completely unlikely due to financial constraint, ie being broke. and my game saves gone. wow. bad.

AID should fix ya probs.. Sounds like something corrupt there.
HDD could be on its way out and have some bad blocks too.. Maybe its a warning sign to backup all your shit.. lmfao.

No seriously, hope you get it sorted man.. Im sure AID will hook you up.

cool beans one question tho about hard drives, roughly how long will a hard drive last? the one i got is only slightly more then a year and ive looked after it well? its been in the xbox probably as long as ive had it nearly, and has served me well, i think the whole error came along while i was updating xbmc thumbnails and then reset it in xbmc because i dont have a dvd drive in my softmod it takes extra to shut down, i did actually want to stop playing my xbox and put it away when i get a next gen console to store it for a few years to preserve it, but if this hard drives gonna frag?!?

If your hearing clicking and ticking then your hdd may be about to die. If I was you I'd back up everything to your computer just in case. That is if you can get the xbox to boot up a dash that will allow you to ftp.
