I've got a TSOP flashed Xbox, eeprom got messed up, installed a real modchip with the original EEPROM embedded and I can now boot and all that good stuff.

My problem is... I've been trying to use configmagic to flash the correct eeprom data back. It won't let me flash though because my hard drive is locked. And it refuses to try to unlock the Xbox from the backup file. It wants to unlock with the bad eeprom data, which of course fails.

So uhh, any ideas on how to force it to flash my eeprom backup? My ethernet port is dead so it's kind of annoying as I have to write a DVD-R everytime I want to install something new on my Xbox.

I know I can do it via some PC programs, but I really don't feel like pulling my hdd from the Xbox and removing something from the IDE on my PC and all that...

Any suggestions would be much appreciated, otherwise I guess tomorrow I'll have to go the PC route. Thanks.
