I have yet another variation on the whole 'Error 21' saga.

I had my xbox softmodded by a friend and all was well. I was trying to get xbmc to let me output to 720p, I tried every setting I could in all the dashboards that were available, however, I accidentally selected 'Patch ms dash' totally retarded I know.

Well now, both the regular dash board and the eject dash try to boot the original ms dash and bail before any options can appear, and all im left with is our dear friend Mr error 21.

Now, heres the confusing part. After the initial panic I tried a few regular games and they worked fine. I toyed with the idea of installing the dash update from Halo 2 but thought I had better not break it further. The softmod save game was still on the machine so I just got the game from my friend (Agent under fire btw). However, in the time it took me to leave my house, pick up the game, and get back, it broke further.

It now wont load anything. No discs work at all, and I've not done anything to it.

Im going to be working on it for some time because I need to fix it. If anyone has any clues, please let me know. If not I will post when I finally find a solution.

ARRGGGGHHH!

Balls, just figured it out. Its because its been unplugged from the mains so now its trying to set the clock before playing a game.

Colour me stupid.

Anyone got any ideas how to continue? Is this gonna have to be a hotswap effort now? Is there any way to skip setting the clock on the regular ms dash without ftp access?

D.

I have softmodded xbox with normal harddrive. Im running Evolution X and everything works great. The only problem is when I go to the M$ Dash and try and change the network setting or troubleshoot the network connection I get the error 21. That is the only time I get it and everthing else works fine. Im trying to get my xbox to run LIVE through my laptop. Anyone help me out here?

You noticed the thread was 2 years old? IMHO better off posting a separate thread. What softmod were you using?

Hello Everyone,

Been a long time since this thread has seen any action, but I figured I'd give it a shot.

I bought a pre-modded xbox several years ago. I have slowly figured out how to do things, and yesterday in an attempt to get icefilms working, I got the 21 error happening.

I was ftping into the box trying to install the latest version of XBMC when I started to get some ftp errors. Files weren't deleting, and I kept getting a bunch of other errors. I made the mistake of trying to reboot ftp & my xbox and since than nothing but error 21.

I have NO IDEA if this was a chipped box or not, but I have looked around and don't see any extra switches on the box. I'm assuming that it was a softmod?

I am still able to load old xbox games, but if no game is present it crashes to the error 21.


So, do I just assume it was a softmodded xbox and try the first solution? If so, what are the games I need? Having never actually modded an xbox I'm pretty confused.

Any advice would be greatly appreciated!

depends what games were used to softmod your system.. Chances are it would be splinter cell. as it is the easiest one to buy knowing it will work to do the modding process..

theres only like 3 games that can be exploited and there is a list of them some where on this forum..
