Tried To Upgrade Xbmc, Now It Won't Load, Son Is Heartbroken......
Posted 12 February 2011 - 10:43 AM
My xbox was softmodded by a previous co-worker. I have since upgraded from the original HDD to a slightly larger one (using Slayers evox auto installer 2.6 and xboxhdm) and never had issues.
What I did:
I found the latest overnight build 30805 (I think), which unpacked in a folder called Build rather than XBMC... I ftp-ed to the xbox from my laptop and transferred then contents of the Build folder to the contents of the XBMC folder on the xbox. Well it didn't copy all of the files but I was still able to load XBMC. I decided as a precaution to copy the Build folder to the xbox.
I noticed that my video plugins which had always worked, suddenly stopped working. So I decided to put the previous version back on there, using the same method, and again, it failed to copy some files. But I thought no big deal, since it worked last time. I restarted my xbox and it wouldn't load past the original green x.
I took my hdd out and found my xboxhdm disk and tried restoring the c: partition. I also used the xbrowser option. I browsed to E:/Apps, renamed XBMC to XBMCOLD. Then I renamed Build to XBMC. I locked the HDD and put it back in the xbox and now it will go past the green x and go to the screen like it would normally if no game was loaded... like it's not even softmodded
Is there any way of recovering the softmod without losing any of the partitions? I have put quite a few games and stuff on there for my son and I really do not want to lose any of the data on m F partition.
When I made my xboxhd disk, I left the E folder empty. Could I make a new xboxhd cd and add the data from the original HDD to the E folder?
Can I clone just the E partition from the original xbox, or does it clone all or nothing? and will cloning knock out the F partition?
I know I just hit you guys with a lot of stuff, but I don't want to leave anything out. Any help is Greatly appreciated.

Bad move. Don't use xboxhdm again until you've exhausted all other possibilities, and even then don't use the one you've been using - start with a new, clean one - we'll come to that later.
What colour is the LED when the Xbox is running? Can you load Slayers?

Once you get FTP working remove the build folder and the contents of your existing XBMC folder from your Xbox, and replace the contents of the XBMC folder with the files and folders from the latest XBMC build.

Ideally you could start with a stock C drive and put Krazie's Ndure on the E drive. You would need to get a game to run the installer. I use Mech Assault. You can use 007 Agent Under Fire and Splinter Cell. You would need to make sure you have the right disk. I haven't ran into a Mech Assault disk that hasn't worked. There are a couple of different versions of Splinter Cell. One will load the installer and the other won't.
After getting the stock C on the new HD and locking it with Xboxhdm, put it in the Xbox and load the game. Run the installer and softmod the Xbox.
Keep the 8gig safe.
You can get Stock C files from a Slayer's CD.
