Implementing A Newer/different Exploit
Posted 28 February 2011 - 10:36 PM
My question is this: is it worth implementing a newer or different softmod on an xbox which has 1) already been successfully soft-modded, 2) already had the original HDD swapped out for one of higher capacity, 3) already does everything I want it to do?
Some background: I keep reading about Krayzie's Ndure being the best available softmod tool going ... I originally fudged a softmod using a combination of AID (v-4.x?) and a Mamedox (v-x.x?) installer. I say fudged because I wasn't entirely certain of what I was doing, but somehow emerged with a successfully dual-bootable softmodded xbox. I'm still not certain which of the methods I used was successful, and there's a nagging worry that i) there's a load of unnecessary crud floating about the xbox, ii) it may - for some reason - go belly-up at any point, and iii) I might be missing out on something
Would there be any distinct advantages from starting over with e.g. Krayzie's Ndure 1.1?
Would I be better to just leave well alone?
Or am I completely misunderstanding this, and the means of performing the exploit makes no difference at all?
Any advice would be appreciated, thanks.

The short version is that Krayzie 1.1.1 is better for noobs because it gives you far fewer options and forces you to have shadow C and virtual eeprom protection (essential IMHO for a safe softmod that can't be bricked by a simple deletion of one file on the C partition). If you are worried that your softmod may be a bit flaky then replacing it is the best option. The easiest way is to grab HeXEn 0.99B11-22 (use Google, password is Heimdall01), burn to DVD-R, cold boot with it, and follow the instructions to update the softmod to Krayzie 1.1.1 or Kingroach NDURE 3.1 (HeXEn doesn't install SID at the moment).

I located a copy of HeXEn, but I'll need to grab some DVD-R discs before proceeding. I'll post an update when I'm done.

No luck with two discs.
I'm assuming that 'cold boot' means stick the DVD in the drive, power off, then power up again?
The hacked dash just starts as normal (powering up with the power button) and the MS dash says the disc is unrecognisable (powering up with the eject button).
I'm already thinking I might just leave well alone ....
