I Screwed Up And Now My Xbox Dash Wont Boot...
Posted 04 November 2008 - 08:48 AM
Now onto the worse news, while I do have the old HDD as well as a backup diskof the files and a memory card, I do now have Splinter Cell (though a friend of mine does I think) or an Action Replay not do I have access to one.
So I was wondering if anyone here can give me a hand on this cause I honestly have no idea what Im doing and I have no idea why I stupidly renamed that file in the first place, Im just not thinking straight today it seems... any help at all would be greatly appreciated. Thanks!

You need to start with the stock C files from Slayers or CASH, use Kingroach NDURE 3.1 to build a new softmod file set on top of the stock C, and xboxhdm (or here) with hotswap to put the softmod files on the Xbox.
Alternatively you could use hotswap and Xplorer360 to copy the new softmod files on the Xbox hard drive.
This softmod also gives you shadow C protection, so you won't be able to accidentally rename important files!!!

Okay... I think I was able to understand most of that, however, I understand what hotswapping is but from what Ive heard that is really dangerous... I would prefer to not kill myself over fixing this thing if that would be possible... Is there any other way to do this without hotswapping?
Oh, and I just remembered that the splinter cell save file we used to unstall unleashX is still in my XBox so wouldnt it just be possible to get ahold of Splinter Cell, load the file, then using that FTP to my computer and just rename the file? Or am I missing something here that I would need to do this?

I'd still suggest that once you get it running again you install a newer softmod with shadow C, so you can't accidentally do the same thing again!!! Have a look at CASH.

Hotswapping isn't fundamentally dangerous provided that you can follow simple instructions (like "earth the Xbox chassis" and "don't touch the Xbox power supply!"). There is a slight chance that you might brick the hard drive because IDE isn't designed for hotswapping, but that's a chance you'll have to take!
