Using a gamesave exploit (007 AUF) to gain ftp access using some disc like ultimate cd
Most gamesave exploits give you ftp access. And you can't put slayers in because it reboots the xbox when you try to swap out the game disk.
(Here i'm not sure if running a cd like ultimate cd or slayers is the correct thing to do, i'm not sure if it'll reformat my drive automatically without even backing up my eeprom,hdkey and other important files.)
Slayers does not automatically format your drive. It boots without doing anything and gives you that option and several others.
Now, is there a danger to installing another dash like Evox while it's possible that UnleashX is still present in my system?
No, dashes can be run just like any other app.
BTW, I have different partitions on my HD, will these show up if I install another dash?
You may have to tell the dash to look for those partitions by editing the .ini file or selecting that option after you load it.
I would like to try Krazie's UXE installer but i'm not sure how to do this without installing another dash like evox and not sure if then it'd give me trouble
To use krayzies installer, your xbox has to be stock. If you can get ftp access, you could delete all the files on your c drive and replace them with stock c files(which can be obtained from slayers)
So the ftp access i'd be gaining would be because of Evox?
Any dash and some programs should give you ftp access.
I understand the gamesave exploit will allow me to run cd to install Evox.
To use the gamesave exploit, you have to boot the game for which the exploit is, then you load a special gamesave that has all the installation files. You cannot switch the disks w/out the xbox resetting.
Btw, my HD (160gb) in unlocked and my past setup was using an old ms dash (think 4920).
Unlocked? did you unlock it because a softmod will not boot if your hdd is unlocked. If it truly is unlocked then you can use xboxhdm to rebuild your hdd however you want to, you need to lock it before you put it back into your xbox. Do you have your eeprom backed up?
