I installed unleash x with krazys ndure just fine, and then I installed XBMC. after that i installed xsnes9x and it would freeze at the boot screen. i backed up the eeprom, but i only have a laptop so i can't use xbhdm.

i read that unleash x would freeze if it finds a corrupt xbe file. i read holding the back button/ start button would skip some things. i don't think the ftp server has booted yet. is there any safety mode i could do?

I encountered a similar problem when playing around with the dashboard start-up (I wanted to make xbmc open from boot). If you have used a game exploit to perform the softmod then the following may help. If you boot the xb with the memory card (containing the softmod install files) plugged in, it will act as a boot disc taking you to the original soft mod install screen. There you can re-install or even better gain you can ftp access and correct your mistakes.

Cold boot with a boot/rescue disc - Frosty's Rescue disc, or AID, or Slayers. (Burn it to DVD-R at 4x or slower.) This will give you FTP access to backup your files and replace your dash (or make whatever repairs you need).

Heimdall - many thanks for quick response. i am attempting to d/l aideluxe 1.20 but its taking ages to download the chunks from mediafire. plus the torrent doesnt have active seeders. is there any quicker means of d/l any of the rescue s/w?

assuming i have d/l the rescue s/w and backed up my f drive, what would be the next steps? would repair the dashboard be a safe option than to replace the entire dashboard with the latest version?

much appreciated, cheers!

The latest AID is 4.5, not 1.2 (that's probably why there are few 1.2 seeders), and it is huge so takes an age to download. Go for Frosty's Rescue disc - it's really small and easy to find.

Just replace your dash and its config with a clean version. N.B>, if your Xbox is softmodded, DON'T touch anything on the C partition.

X-S Messiah - salutations!

Thanks for your tip on using Frosty's XBOX Rescue Disc v1.0 over AID. Managed to find RS download link which is just over 4mb. Upon extraction it ended up with over 1GB ISO file.

Here is the link for the benefit of other people in this forum::

Cheers mate.

Managed to boot using Frosty's Rescue disk and FTP'ed in. Sad, the F: drive is totally empty. Has the dashboard wiped the contents? Seems I have lost my games, music & tv shows. Is there any way I can recover them?

Contents:
C drive:
Seems the original dashboard is here. I can see
config.xml
unleashx.xbe
xboxdash.xbe

E drive:
has some eeprom backup files alongwith the following folders:
Games - empty
TDATA
UDATA

F drive:
here my games, music & tv shows originally resided. totally empty

G drive:
empty

X drive:
contains file cached_filesys.dat

Y drive:
empty

Z drive:
empty

Can you please help Heimdall? A bit disappointed. Mine is Xecutor 2.6CE with 200GB HDD.

Sounds as though your disk doesn't have an on-disk partition table, and your current BIOS is hard coded for F takes all. Don't worry - your data should still be there when you reboot without Frosty's.

If you are sure your Xbox is chipped then you are safe to mess about on the C partition. Start by replacing unleashx.xbe and config.xml with clean copies, and clear E:\cache\ (if it is there), and the X, Y and Z partitions.

"Don't worry - your data should still be there..."

Relief! Relief! Relief!! My 5-year old will turn the house upside down if I let him know that his games are no more!

Where can i get clean copies of unleashx.xbe and config.xml? Sorry for playing dumb (its once bitten twice shy syndrome!).

ah! sigh of relief!

1. burnt the Frosty's Rescue disc ISO to DVD-R.
2. Started Xbox with Frosty's Rescue disc.
3. FTP'ed into the Xbox
4. On C drive, deleted the config.xml & unleashx.xbe
5. managed to obtain latest version of UnleashX from the "usual place".
6. Un-rar'ed the UnleashX.rar.
7. FTP'ed the config.xml & unleashx.xbe to the C drive of Xbox.

And got my F: drive contents back. Works!! Thanks a ton to Heimdall.
