Ok, I read the tutorial written by rocky called "Install font exploit on unmodded by hotswapping HD with modded xbox (v0.1)" and I just want to know....

Instead of using his boxplorer/bert and ernie reloaded boot disk, can I use a Slayer's Disk?

Is there any possible way I can damage our xboxes? If so, how?

Quick answers please! I need to get this done by today!

OK I got all the necessary files, and made the boot disk. Now all I need to know before I do this is what are the risks? Anyone?

What error number is it giving you on his xbox?

Probably what happened is you loaded a new dashboard from slayers, but since it's not M$ signed, the default BIOS won't load it. It's possible to fix that, but it'll help if you have a savegame exploit loaded on that box.

It doesn't show an error number, and I didn't use slayers, i used phoenix and bert and ernie reloaded.

So, how are you accessing the E drive?

are you sure it's not giving you an error number? It's in the upper left of the 'needs service screen'. If it still plays games, it must be dashboard related.
You'll need some way to access the C drive.

Did you read the tutorial? I accessed the other box's e drive from boxplorer on my xbox cuz i loaded it then switched hard drives, if someone can please tell me how to access the c drive then I think i can put everything back to normal.

No... Did you post a link? Or should I waste my time looking for some tutorial that you read somewhere.

I think I found a tutorial that will help, I'd tell you where it is... but that would ruin the fun. Maybe if you google for 'fucked up my friends xbox'.

Okay, okay... So, boXplorer won't open the contents of C when you connect his drive? and when you boot his console it FRAGs with NO error code?

It sounds like maybe the partitioning of the drive got damaged? I'd boot his xbox to the error screen, Hotswap it to yours and boot an Evox disc that will let you format drive C. Format C. Then boot his again (it will error again since there won't be any dashboard), hotswap, boot Boxplorer on yours and see if that helps.

NOTE: You'll have to replace all his dashboard files. (besides just installing Bert and Ernie)

I'd be careful with Slayers. I believe it's set up to Format ALL your Xbox drives. (which would result in losing all your savegame info). In this case you only want to Format C.

Although, if you don't care about the save game info at this point, I'd go with Restore Retail Hd to Factory.

Then you should be able ot try your Font Exploit again...
