To Play This Game Put It Into An Xbox 360 Console

If anyone has a clue to how to solve this, I would be very much appreciate it.

I know how to restore the original, but how would this be any different than what I did the first time? I had no problems using the 10 second trick to read the original. I also believe my original to be a good dump by checking with firmware toolbox. I also compared the original to the hacked firmware that I created and it appeared to be correct. I didn't have any problems flashing the drive with the 10 second trick. I'm not trying to argue, just trying to understand. I will certainly try this when I get home later tonight though. If there are any other thoughts just in case this doesn't work, I'll gladly add them to my list of things to try.

Is this backup working fine on your other console and all backups not working on that specific console?
If all are not working then it seems like the key is not right? without reflashing you can dump the firmware on the console actually
type mtkflash r /m orig.bin
port selection will come up
remove power from drive
count to 10
drive should have firmware read off of it
and check the key against the original.
You must also make sure it is not simply the backup

Just to confirm before you start restoring and reflashing (be careful, good way to brick a drive).
Since I just did this (the Brick part) ....can you tell why this is? Why is this process so dangerous as opposed to the flashing processes.

Sorry about your drive man,
it is not more dangerous, it is just as dangerous. But I see people that have a problem with a backup that will beat their drive to death by reflashing until one of those turn bad.
-Basically dump the FW
-Be sure the key inserted in hacked.bin is good before flashing
and then you should make sure your backup are really good before questioning your flash.
(if you want to be sure , redump the firmware currently on the drive and Hex compare to the hacked.bin to be sure.)
Best way to validate a backup is to have access to another x360 that you know is already playing backup properly, and try it. Try two to be sure, and if both are fucntional but not on your x360 you can start thinking about equipment again.
anyhow, just my personal view on that, sometimes too much flashing not enough diagnostic.
EDIT: HI caster, thks man for the info. , found the post
if you originals are working, forget the flashing.
post in the backup forum, will be happy to help.

1. I'm pretty sure that the key is good. It will play originals. If it was the key would it not reject originals? I did check the key of the original, and once the hacked firmware was made, checked that firmware and compared the keys and they were the same.
2. I'm pretty sure that my backups are good because I have two other 360's, one with a sammy ms-25 and the other with a hitachi 46. My backups work on both of these other consoles.
3. None of the backups that work in the other 360's work on this specific console. Gives me the insert in a 360 console message.
4. I have flashed other ms-28's using this same method and they worked, I know that doesn't necessarily mean anything, but it should show that I have done this before successfully.
Thats what I've observed so far and I am open to suggestions, I'm thinking of trying to restore the drive with the original, then flash it with 4.2 and see what it does.

Because, if the bup are good, the flash is good... it could be your laser is marginal and not able to compensate a poor media as the others are.

If the laser turns out to be the culprit, would it serve any good to do a pot tweak on it?
Posted 20 February 2007 - 01:57 AM
I would be tempted to say pot tweak. Not sure to be honest but seems the logical one, someone will surely jump in with other ideas as well.
