just tried SID v2.0 on a v1.1 xbox, works fine no probs @ all Smile
A little question...
When updating the msdash, I contacted live service (without logging onto the service) to download the new dash.
Is my hdd now married already to my eeprom for live ?
i.e. will I be able to upgrade my harddrive and use live when I want to use a chip install in the future ?


Maybe...Maybe not, no one really knows for sure, its just a theory.

It will depend on what modchip you use, I know there's a few out there that can actually help with that.

However I'm a believer of when your xbox is modded, keep away from Xbox Live.

Yup C:\SID should have open , close, loader and bios. BUT your xboxdash.xbe would be hacked to work with it. The MS Dash is deleted when the softmod is put on , and only restored when you perform the 5960 patch (which relies on the backup made of your C dirive that you must perform before anything).

This is confusing to me, as this softmod has worked on versions right up to 1.6b. There's gotta be something wrong that you've done on your side...


I have now tried it from scratch a ouple of times. Every time puting the backup back that I FTPd to my PC. Every time with the same result. This is what I get when I start an xbe from the file explorer:
When I start c:\xboxdash.xbe then the text 'loading... online updater application' stays on the screen.
When I start c:\evoxdash.xbe when its the unleashx dash I get the text 'loading... unleashx xbox louncher' for a moment and then a fully functional dashboard. With the evox dashboard the loading text stays on screen.
When I start C:\sid\bios.xbe then the text 'loading... phoenix bios loader' stays on the screen
When I start DVD2XBOX or DVDX then it works
When i start E:\backup\ms\xboxdash.xbe then i get the error '21 your xbox requires service'

since you see the online updater message I think the xboxdash.xbe is the right one.
since I get an error starting up the e:\backup\ms\xboxdash.xbe i think I do not have the lates MS dash. But then I never patched it so that should be OK?

If you don't have the latest MS dash (version 5960) and run the Patch, say bye bye to your MS dash.

Ok wheni try to install the softmod i get and install error that it can'
t unrar softmod.rar error 0, if i try to install evox i get the same error except its evox.rar error zero. On the soft mod part it always seems to fail when its extracting boot.cfg from the sid folder. I tried unraring the files on my pc and they are fine and the file passes the sfv that came with it. Anyideas?

Sounds like a problem transferring the gamesave from the memory card to the xbox. Try trasnfering again or try another memory card.

It's cool that you got it to work by changing the file name. My solution to the problem was by deleting the hacked gamesave. In my case MechAssault. Once I was done installing the hacked dash, evox and patching the m$ dash and finished the backups I deleted the entire mechassault game save. Now if I am in need of accessing the original "eject menu" I just reload the gamesave from my memory card and voila the "eject menu" is back.

I have a HUGE problem with my xbox after restoreing to the MS Dash. I rebooted the Xbox after the restore and it turned on and gave the message that the MS Dash is recieving updates from Xbox live, but even if it is connected to the internet it wont update. It will reinstall Evox although. Is a modchip the only way to fix this? Will it be possible for me to reinstall the MS Dash again?

Edit: I booted up Halo 2 and it automatically fixed the MS Dash.

SID worked fine for me on a brand new UK Xbox Kernel 1.0.5838.1 and a 5960 dash. Just one small problem. When I run Patch 5960 to put the MS dash back on C: the buttons in the Unleash skins get replaced with small green buttons as opposed to big blue ones for the Default Unleash dash or red buttons for the Dragon skin. Any ideas why this is happening? Other than that have to say that this is probably the easiest mod I have done, after previously soldering two modchips before on other boxes, this was a doodle. Well done sir!

I am in love with this installer. It has worked great for me twice now (two diffrent boxes.) I have a problem, when I try to re access the expliot via MA I get only a black screen. So I am unable to access the restore MS dash or install a diffrent dash. if anyone has had this problem or has any ideas that would be to great thanks!

You can use Auto-Installer Deluxe to install other dashboards if you wish, which is a good idea since it has more dashboards than SID.

What version of SID are you runnning btw?

You also should be able to access the softmod menu by turning the xbox on with the eject button, and leaving the tray out.
