OK, here's a way I've thought of that should guarentee that Softmod Installer Deluxe v2.0 will work on any Xbox.

Firstly, if you're not using an Official Xbox Memory Card or a Mega X-Key, I'd suggest doing so. There's been a lot of reports that the newer Action Replay Memory cards can not handle the installer.

Now, follow these simple steps:

  • Copy the gamesave over to the unmodded Xbox.
  • Install a softmod on your xbox, don't worry about the MS Dash as we are going to clean C Drive soon.
  • Boot Auto-Installer Deluxe v1.01 or higher.
  • Either using FTP or the File Manager, delete ALL files from C Drive.
  • Install the MS Dash from Auto-Installer Deluxe.
  • Reboot
  • Install softmod AGAIN.
  • Install your hacked dashboard, or wait to use AID again. If you don't install it now you won't be able to boot your xbox until you do.
  • Install the MS 5960 patch.
Now it should all be done.

Now, I'm pretty sure you have to actually delete the files from C Drive, and not format the drive.

I hope that helps some of you out...

Man did that ever help thanks. I was pretty screwed until I read your post. I couldn't figure out why I kept getting the red/green flashing thing on start up after installing the MS Dashboard from Auto Installer Deluxe Very Happy.

Question Now, one quick question if anyone can help. Shocked After looking at a couple of dashboards, I think the XBMC might suit me the best. But I can't seem to get to the MS Dashboard from it - I use the MS one for watching DVDs to get the menu options etc and the xbmc for everything else. Any ideas on this? TIA Very Happy

Oh, another quick question. How does one get the XBMC to use other than the Symbols skin? This skin seems broken as you can't get to some of the functionality - but it's the one that the XBMC defaults to on my system Question (the only way I've found to get it so it doesn't load that skin is to delete the symbols sub-directory - but perhaps that's not the best way - seems to work though.


Thanks again heaps.

Matt

ok does anyone here know how to do a flawless install without AID? well heres how you do it
ok there are 3 games you can use splinter cell,mechassult,007 AUF but i recommend splinter cell cause you can fit the savegame+ the linux installer on a microsoft 8mb mem card.
the first thing you do is install the latist dash by putting in a newer game(i used nfl street 2 it works fine)
ok now you need to transfer the files to your harddrive(im assuming you already put the saves on your mem card)and after you have made sure they are on turn off then on the xbox now insert the game you are using and start it up now go into load game and choose "linux" or in 007 choose the xboxHDD
i have no clue what mechassult would say.
ok now that it has booted the unleshx dash you need to patch the dash "5495 dash" then go up to the create c backup and do that and the mod backup ok now you can install the softmod, install evox to the C drive, and install unleashx to the E drive. now turn off you xbox and press the eject button and take the disc out and close the tray and taa daa you have succsfully softmodded your box!!! but put a password on boxplorer because some people like to delet stuff hope this helped you out peace

If you install SID without AID, what about other programs you want to isntall? AID has all these tools while SID basically just softmods the box.

All the gamesaves will fit on a 8mb memory card, and actually splinter cell is the largest. All the other exploits only require one gamesave oppsed to two.

Yep this is all fine so far...

You've got this totally wrong, you don't perform the MS patch until after you've installed the softmod, not before. And why are you installing evox to C and unleashx to E? Your xbox will only boot one or the other.

Why even install boxplorer? You have a fully functional file manager within UnleashX.

I'm sorry if I've picked apart this post, but there are so many mistakes here I had to...

Well I have to say whoever taught you obviously never read any of the documentation I put out with my tools, which is a shame because now they're passing on bad techniques.

Yes you are right about putting the dashs on different drives so that don't conflict as such, but this is because they are in the root folder. There are other ways to install all the dashboards to your apps folder then ust a program called XSelect to set up all different buttons on your controller to boot certain programs on startup.

I'm confused, wha does the MS patch actually do? And what is the outcome if you do this softmod the way that DJB has just described? Please be a as detailed as possible. Thanks.

SID 2.0 and 3.0 are completely different, because they are using different types of exploit. 2.0 uses PBL and 3.0 uses NKpatcher.

Once a softmod is installed, you can boot AID 2.11 and install a PBL setup if you wish, but then it would only be going back to the SID 2.0 technology. Unless you have problems with SID 3.0 just use that, or if you feel adventurous try out SID 4.0.

The problem with region 2 can be bypassed. After the softmod is installed, if gives you a Yes/No option after the installation (this is where it patches eeprom), if you select No your eeprom wont be altered from the backup.

Yep it should work, the SID 2.0 / 3.0 systems are similar in how they are applied.
