Hello everyone,

I have recently purchased a used xbox1 from a thrift store.

While deleting the saved game data that was left by the previous owner from the hard drive, I came across the UnleashX launcher.

Problem is I am unable to launch it, only option I seem to have is to copy it or delete it.

Is it possibly just an old saved settings file and the app is no longer there?

Or is it the app and if so how to launch it?

Comes up at 177 blocks.

Any info would be appreciated.

Thanks in advance.

Pierre

Yes. Those are just pieces of saved data (preferences or game progress) for installed apps/played games. You can't launch anything from there. That just tells you that the xbox was modded at one time. The dash may still be there, but to launch it, you will have to mod it. Either softmod or hardmod.

Assuming the softmod was done that way the thing(s) to have looked out for amongst the game saves were anything marked as installer eg. the Splinter Cell exploit comes in two parts, the installer would have been a large game save of roughly 650+ blocks and the other smaller SC game save exploit itself.

If they or either of the other two games' save files that could have been used previously to softmod your Xbox were there they'd be very obvious.

However even if they were present you'd still need an original copy of the game in question to be able to (re)install the softmod. The UnleashX Launcher game save file you have is generated as part of the install process anyway so consequently there's really no point in keeping it.

I figured as much. No there are no saved game files from any of the exploit games.

Next question. Can I take the drive from another modded xbox1, clone it, and then use it in my xbox??

Or does the bios have to be hacked as well?

actually depending on what softmod was used with the splinter cell exploit. did you try turning the system on by pushing the bigger button that will open the dvd tray? The SIDS splinter cell exploit allowed a fail safe so if you turned on the system by opening the dvd drive instead of using the power button, it brings you to a blue screen with a few options on it to get you back up and going. Worth a shot if you did not try that method yet

Yes I have tried all the buttons / combos with no luck.

By the looks of it I'm going to have to do the pawn shop runs today to see if i can find one of the games to expliot, and solder up a dongle, no luck with friends.

thanks for the info gentlemen

well could not find a copy of the game anywhere...

more digging online and I found the hot swap info, did that, thought i had messed it up, but she booted to unleashx

ftp a few min later and transfer files, reboot to xbmc v8.something smile.gif

wish it had been as easy as writing that was, took me hours to find some soul who had stashed away the old versions of xbmc (there is no "old versions" link on the site, at least not that I could find)

all set up and installed in bedroom, shares are done and settlin in to watch a movie smile.gif
