Xbox Live Not Found After Config Magic
Posted 01 January 2004 - 11:30 PM
My problem is I now cannot connect to xbox live at all. The connect status screen says:
"Cables connected, IP settings configured, DNS resolved" but then "Xbox live not found". Anyone guess maybe why? I followed the excellent tutorial on this site over swapping out an eeprom with Config Magic, am nearly there but can't get over this final hurdle.

Answers: This is a replacement eeprom I purchased yesterday. XYZ info is:
X: 0000 - 000B
Y: 00C2 - 03E0
Z: 0000 - 0000
EvolutionX is installed on the C drive.
UK PAL machine. (I"m in the UK)
Eeprom purchased was also PAL.
When I used ConfigMagic the new video and XBE region was given as "PAL region 1" whereas my previous region had been "PAL region 4" so I edited the 1 to a 4 in ConfigMagic.
Router is a Netgear DG824M.
PC is a Mac G4 but I run Virtual PC.
I have a dynamic IP from my ISP. Configuration in Xbox is set to automatic.
Before the eeprom install my IP address was 192.168.0.7 but after it changed to 192.168.0.8
Subnet Mask and Gateway figures are unchanged.
DNS servers is set to automatic.
I have entered no advanced settings, all fields are blank.
Modchip is an Xecutor 2 lite.
When I rebooted the machine with the new eeprom all my other settings (sound, video etc.) had reverted back to the default.
There's no link to my gamertag, I have to try an account recovery but it always says, could not connect to xbox live.
Sorry about the length but I hope that's helpful. I can supply more if you need. From what I've read I see I have a problem with the 00C2 Y code and I'm guessing it doesn't like the "PAL region" number change I made? Could this be it and can I fix it?
Many many thanks, if your intention is to get as many people as possible bypassing the ban you're succeeding - cheers, Edwin.

Any ideas what could be the problem?
I flash back my original eeprom and I get the original software/hardware modification error.

Incidentally, I reloaded the new eeprom all over again through ConfigMagic but this time did not change the XBE region, left it on "PAL Region 1" and got the same 00C2 error in the Y of my XYZ codes. It's like the manual change I'm doing in ConfigMagic to Region 4 isn't being recognized. And how can you have a PAL region 1? Region 1 is NTSC isn't it?

If not, anyone email me where I can try to find a UK compatible eeprom? Many thanks.

|Has anyone here managed to install a region 1 (NTSC or PAL (if the latter exist)) eeprom on a (UK) region 4 machine?|
Of course. Reading the tutorial for Configmagic (mine), you can change the region of the EEPROM.

I bought the eeprom from someone on the forum here who seemed to get good feedback. However I'm now almost certain the eeprom is faulty. There's a thread here http://forums.xbox-s...36375&hl=eeprom with people getting exactly the same problem and XYZ 00C2 error code as myself. They all found their problem was down to a faulty eeprom.
I've emailed everyone in that thread and asked who sold them the faulty eeprom and whether they ever got a working replacement. I'll let you know the answers so if anything we can warn people.
Which now means I've got to find someone else to sell me a working one.

Does this mean an 00C2 error code will often tell you you have a faulty eeprom providing you've checked your Video XBE region is accurate? Because if so that's really invaluble for people selling and buying them.

Xbox-Scene is aware of the problems with some sellers selling the same EEPROM to different customers, and is trying to help stop the issue.
