how do you go about getting the EEPROM image? I have a friend that is never going to use live, so i was going to just get his. Can i just use EEPROMMAGIC and get his backup one and then rename it?

you use evoX's backup function. in the folder c:/backup you will see eeprom.bin

I'm back online,

I folled demi's intructions last friday. Basically the same, but not as detailed as the instructions in this thread.

Now just don't forget to shut the switch, and I should be in good shape.

Any chance on this getting added to the "tutorials" section opjose, written by anonymous?

That way this thread doesn't need to exist.

Thanks,

Z

This didn't work for me......BECAUSE I had two Xboxes using Live beta and I stopped using one before the "Tuesday Crash" and I did the EEPROM method, everything worked fine, but Xbox Live not found. MS basically used us Xbox modded Live beta testers are guinea pigs to stop modded Xboxes...

(Long story so don't ask why I didn't just use the other one to see if Live worked)

Oh well, that is why I have a second virgin Xbox.

Zander,

An important sidenote is to also put

HDDisabl.exe

on the disk. If someone screws up (points finger at me), the HD will unlock but will relock after a reboot. HDDisabl disables the security on it thus allowing all the relocking and unlocking you want.

shanafan,

Thanks for the catch, although I do note the use hddisabl.exe, I TOTALLY forgot to add it to the requirements.

I have updated the tutorial.

Thanks again,

Z

Zander,

I'm all set now I'm going to do this in the morning when I get off work. But just out of curiousity. Wouldn't the lock be the same as the lock on the xbox that your taking the eeprom from? Just wondering if it generates a totally unique lock or if you could cut down the steps by using the lock from the good eeprom.

If you do a software hack you could run ConfigMagic.
