Hey, I just downloaded SID from I-Hacked (http://www.i-hacked.com/content/view/114/62/) and tryed to drag the folder, which is not zipped, into the PC Database, but it says its not a valid Xbox Save. What am i doing wrong? Oh, and I downloaded the bit torrent thing from their site so i could open the file. What is weird is that it was 0 kbs when i downloaded it. It contains a text document, RAR file, MD5 fil, and SFV file, all of which are 0 kbs and named Softmod.Installer.Deluxe.v2.0.Xbox-Hq

yer the reason they are 0kb is because they haven't finished downloading yet, whenever you download a torrent file it makes a "scaffold" for the files that are going to be downloaded, so you'll have to wait till they finish downloading

hi, i need some help in some questions that i'm not fully sure how it works.
i'm new to softmod. I currently have smart xx on a 1.06b xbox and it's running good with x2 5035. now i need to know the following questions plz.

thx for all replys.

1.- this might sound stupid but, does the softmod allow you to run unsigned code(backups mainly)?

2.- ........where does the hacked bios get loaded from and can i ftp a new bios for me to use instead of the M8?

3.- if to #2, what's the size of bios i must use?

4.- after installing this softmod, let's say 007, can i use update my dashboard via ftp, like newest dash release of unleashx and my skins etc.........?

5.- here's a theory i have that might work, if anyone knows the answer, plz let me know, if you don't know, but can try, let me know the outcome Smile .

ok, i'm gonna softmod a xbox, after i'm gonna ftp, back up all of C and E drive, now i'm gonna pop up evox to save my eeprom and hhd info.....etc. and then after that's done, i'll make me an evox disc to format and lock hdd with that eeprom and key info, now, i'll take a hhd (let's say it's lockable and compatible), put in in my xbox(chipped), format it with evox and lock it with evox so the eeprom of the evox disc becomes the one from the other xbox, after this is done, i'll take all of the data, and put it back in the box. will it boot properly if i lock the hdd after? on the softmodded xbox?

to be more specific and more simple. i'll just put non-modded files back in the hdd to see if it boots like a normal unmodded, then softmod again from game on new hdd, after ftp back all my stuff, and get the F drive and G (if possible), fully working Smile

is my theory is correct, i'm gonna have lots of fun not using a softmods for larger hdd using my modded xbox with chip to format and other stuff like locking with softmodded eeprom and hdd key, and not having to go through that BIG ASS process ppl show here with linux this and linux that....

thx

EDIT: i'll be using a xbox that's mb a 1.04 or 1.05, not 1.06..... and i'm using the SID3........this is for SID2, but i didn't find any threads for SID3. thx

Reply with quote
 
For some reason I cannot connect to my xbox via ftp. I accidently deleted my 007 AUF gamesave and now I am trying to put on AID 2.11 so I can fix this. But when trying to connect to my box I cannot get a connection at all. I am using Flash FXP and am connected to my xbox through a hub. Is there anything I can try to correct this ?

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.


I had same problem. SID 3.0 worked for me. My memory card is a newer Action Replay...

P.S. Can anyone explain to me a little more detail of what the SoftMOD is doing? I've seen places that says it is changing the eeprom of your xbox chip (reflashing it). If this is true, if I make a new backup of the eeprom after it has been softmodded, is it not the actual original and how do I return the eeprom back to the default prom if I want to install a hardware mod later and have a pristine default prom? TIA.

A softmod doesn't change your eeprom unless you want it to

DJB was talking about making a virtual eeprom to go on XLIVE with, however he has since rethought that idea.

A softmod at its basis uses a buffer overflow in the games (Mech, 007:AUF, and SplC)'s .xbe while loading games saves.

This overflow allows for unsigned code to be run, this is where the font exploit comes in. It allows for the booting of this code and .xbe really. But it also allows for the BIOS launcher and the bios to be implemented as well. Then you get your unleash X menu.

The backup makes a back up of your C: drive to the E: (I think, haven't softmodded but once as a beta-test).

Then it formats C: and installs Unleash/Evox menu replacing the original MS Dashboard.

Thanks, Shortacid.

I understand the overflow save game exploit, but I guess my question is, once you install a softmod, is it really just replacing XBE dash files, or has something also been changed with the eeprom (you say the softmod doesn't change your eeprom, unless you WANT it too). Hum...say I click "install softmod" from the save game exploit booted unleashedx dash. Does THAT change my eeprom?

My question is this, assume you could unlock a HDD on an unmodded XBox with xboxhdm (assume you had the eeprom.bin). Could you copy an already modded HDD to the unmodded drive (say in a vmlinux booted PC), relock it, and then just pop it back into the unmodded xbox, and be "softmodded"? This would imply you are only changing something with the dash boot files on a softmodded box, and not the eeprom (which I think is correct), but I wanted to establish this as correct (I've seen a lot of guides indicating that installing the softmod is actually "reflashing" the eeprom, which surprises me). It isn't impossible, but it would seem to me that if an eeprom reflash WAS part of the softmod install, just uninstalling the soft mod and restoring your MS Dash backup is not all that is needed to be done to return the box to a pristine "unmodded" state (i.e. the eeprom would also need to be flashed back as well). Maybe this is just symantics, but I'm curious!

Thanks again.

Bump! Any comments?

I softmodded my XBox originally, then just prepped a new 250GB drive from scratch and hard modded it with Xecutor 2.6 CE. What I need to know, is was there SOMETHING I should have done to "reflash" the EEPROM of the native XBox back to be able to play on XBox Live! or not (obviously to play XBox Live!, I would be booting with the mod chip disabled, but now I assume it is booting to my original xbox eeprom, which I had done a softmod on)??? Not that I hardly ever play Live!, just want to know before I try it.

Thanks,

-Jhondra

OK, post your help questions here.

Two things to remember:

1) Read this forum thread here which explains how to use it: SID 2.0 Information

2) Some Action Replay cards may not accept the gamesaves, I don't know why but all I know is that it's the newer Action Replays that are affected. If your Action Replay fails then try and use an official xbox memory card instead of the memory card sent with the action replay.

Hi, just a quick note to say thanks for SID 2.0 Very Happy Ran it on a v1.4, no probs at all
