Why do I need a chip?
Posted 14 September 2005 - 04:11 PM
Since you've been working this problem for a while, I think at this stage you should look at getting a solderless chip to get the box back up and running.
My hunch based on this thread and previous ones you've had on the subject is that you've got the wrong eeprom.bin file.
If you load the eeprom.bin into LiveInfo Beta3 it will give you the Xbox Serial Number (Second line - under the select Xbox Version) which should match the label on the underside of the Xbox. If these are not the same then it's the wrong eeprom backup.
If the serial numbers match then it would appear the eeprom has been modified or overwritten using ConfigMagic.
This is the only thing that makes sense as I know xboxhdm works fine, i've used it only last week to upgrade a drive and it went without a hitch.
Hope you sort it out ... again double check the serial numbers.

Why do I need a chip?
Ehm.. the EEPROM is a chip on the xbox mobo containing video settings, XBL key, serial and HDkey. Its not on the hard drive! The hard drive is locked using info FROM the eeprom DUMP. Since you dont have a proper eeprom dump, you cant lock the HD. Meaning you need to boot from a hacked BIOS (and since u cant boot the box to flash the TSOP, you need a chip)

I got the eeprom from LiveInfo Beta 2.
If I need a hacked bios, why can't I just use Xbox HDM and install a UXE softmod or Ndure softmod? I don't want to pay for a chip!
And can LiveInfo Beta 3 be found in the usual places? Cause I can only find Beta 2.

I've lost count of the number of times you were told it's the wrong eeprom
Vagueness and grammer managed to mix up the eeproms?
If the tutorial is an improvement on anything else out there it's gotta be a good contribution.
Once it's chipped, make sure the drive is unlocked using the XBOXSCENE password, get a copy of ConfigMagic and run it on the Xbox, select Lock HD... job done, you can finish the softmod and remove the chip.
P.S.: If you use ConfigMagic, your master password will be changed from XBOXSCENE to TEAMASSEMBLY.

BTW how did you UNLOCK the hard drive to begin with (i mean how can you lock the drive with a wrong eeprom if you cant unlock it first..)
If you did that from the xbox itself, then the HD probably contains an eeprom backup of the box it came from! You can use xboxhdm to copy the eeprom to a floppy, then lock it with that eeprom. tadaa ur done.

I'm looking at an X3 CE right now, and they look pretty useful. But if and when I get one, I will need help with the solderless adapter.
