How Do I Tell What Softmod I Have?
Posted 21 January 2007 - 07:43 PM
I bought my Xbox on the used market about three weeks ago, and it was already softmodded. I am having fun learning what the Xbox is truly capable of. I am ready to upgrade to krayzie's latest softmod, but I have seen that I need to know what kind of softmod I have first. I don't know where to find this information. I have learned that I have an Xbox 1.0 and that I have 4034 retail BIOS and when i boot my Xbox with the tray open I boot to UnleashX 0.371218A (where the liveupdate doesn't work, but that's a quesiton for another time). Anyway, this seems to be all I could figure out.
Anyway, little help? Thanks.
Oh, P. S. I did do a search but couldn't find anything, so please don't be too harsh on me if it is already here. I would be grateful for such a link to a relevant post.

One good way to find out is try asking the guy you bought it from, I'm sure they wouldn't mind telling you what softmod it is running. I'm also guessing since you bought it softmodded you don't have the exploit tools (a memcard, AR, or USB device and one of the 3 exploitable games), those are very handy to have, but not 100% needed if you have the eeprom (since you can rebuild with XBOXHDM, but that's not always fun).
I would say if you feel comfortable using XBOXHDM and feel you can rebuild the drive if anything goes wrong then feel free to use CASH, but if you don't feel comfortable doing that and the box is working I'd leave it be for now.
Hopefully in a future version of CASH i can design and implement a softmod detection tool that will detect the softmod used, would be extremely helpful in situtations like this.

i saw the bert and ernie files on my c drive so i went ahead and chose the other softmod option and got lucky. so, your cd worked great for me. thank you so much for your work on that.
