My neighbours xbox was softmodded and now freezes at the flubber... reading the forums here trying to help him I was wondering is there a hotswap download of a complete softmod... or is it even possible... What I mean is can you take a successful softmod and copy all of the files from the c: partition and just copy them on to a hotswap? I have a modchip in my xbox so I am of no use to him.... so is this possible and does it exist or is a bios flash necessary also? thanks

If it freezes there it would likely be the bios.

...do you even know what a hotswap is?

Anyway, if it's a softmod and he has a corrupt BIOS/TSOP, he's probably screwed and needs to get a chip. Hotswapping wouldn't help in the least since the BIOS probably doesn't get around to unlocking the HDD in the first place.

Well you could hotswap his dhd into your xbox then use slayers and rebuild his drive...Im not sure but i think theres a tutorial on here somewhere...

Also you could try hotswapping with Xboxhdm and rebuilding his drive...If you dont allready have the stock C: files just get slayers 2.6 and extract them from there to use on xboxhdm disc..Goodluck

Edit: Check the links in my Sig...

yeah I do , it's pluging in the HD to a pc while xbox is booted (so it unlocks the HD), called hot because the HD is powered on while doing it

yeah I guess I'm looking to reinstall the softmod, but perhpas I should just sendhim back to the guy who did it originally
big help guys, much appreciated

Tried this but when I type softmod it says it's unable to find xbox hd..... so can I assume the bios is screwed? or would an unloch hd utility work here before tryingthe softmod reinstall

thing is initially the xbox worked with a softmod for one game, then it crapped out and now freezes at the flubber

Did you have the power plugged in the hdd? When you turn on the comp can you here the hdd running? Is the IDE all the way in?
