So I recently made a thread on this forum asking how I screwed up my Falcons NAND. It has it do with the procedure where I installed FSD 2.0 RC 2.1 and dash launch 2.21. I now know "somewhat" how to fix it, but I'm going to send it back with the warranty, throw in some cash, and get my self a Jasper happy.gif I really don't want to mess up my new xbox 360s NAND. Literally 5 days after I got my first jtag I screwed it up, and if this happens with my Jasper, which is worth alot. I'm going to be all depressed and my life will suck for quite a while, lol. It's hard making cash when your 15, and it's way worse when you spend it on something you really want, then break. I mean, I want to have FSD on boot really bad, but once again, if I mess up the NAND, I'll Be devastated. So on a lighter note, I have to instal FSD, but I have to make sure I do it right, which is where you guys come in. So I have this tut from se7ensins on installing FSD with dash launch 2.21, the tut is meant for people on 12611.

Now, before I go any further, I Will let you all know I f**ked up my falcon JTAG from most likely one of these two reasons: (1. Would be more likely than 2)

1: I use the 2.21 dash launch .XEX but the rest of the files are for an older dash launch.
2: I rename the default.XEX file in the freestyle folder to something like Freestyle.XEX, but I don't change the launch.ini, so it looks for the file I renamed, but it looks for the old name.
Example:
HDD:Freestyle/default.XEX
Instead of
HDD:Freestyle/freestyle.XEX

It could be something else, or it could be a combination of these two problems, haha


Okay, so, back to the tut...
FSD and dash launch 2.21 on dashboard 12611

So the big question is... If I use this tut on my Jasper JTAG (when it arrives) on dashboard 12611 or 12625? and follow the tut properly this time, will it work correctly, cause this tut is meant for the 12611, but will it still work if I use it for 12625? and instead of FSD2.0 RC 1.8, is it okay if I use RC 2.1? are you sure my Jasper should be fine if I do this? I really don't want to mess up my Jasper like I did to my falcon, but I want FSD to show up on boot really badly. So I appreciate anyone who takes their time to read and reply to my thread. Thanks.

Im a little confused. So you have FSD on your JTAG and it doesnt boot and you get an error? When you boot have you tried holding the top right shoulder button this will take you to the default dash. Also you could always put xexmenu on a disk and use a thumbdrive to transfer and edit the correct files. Just a thought, and as far as dash launch before you install read the readme and make sure it will work for your dash revison if it does you can always boot xexmenu create a folder name it FSD and edit you settings.ini for it. Theres plenty of tutorials on here and videos on youtube wink.gif . Hope this helps i sumtimes ramble.

Vayne, you're dicing things up a bit, and neither of your posts make sense or are in the right section which is possibly why you're not getting the help you expected...

FSD is an application that runs on jtags, pretty much comparable to playing a game.

Dashlaunch is a little different and I guess its possible you screwed something up if you used dashlaunch for 12611 on 12625. but even that would be totally fixable if you have a good nand dump and a flasher. If you don't, then my next point applies doubly.

not trying to dissuade you from learning but this is my advice to you: if you're ordering pre-jtag'd box's ask the seller to set this up for you even if it costs a couple extra bucks it would be cheaper than going through this again, no?

Mafiafan is right, there are tutorials on every site pretty much how to do this that walk you through step by step. Spend time reading until you understand what you're doing before you try again. Good luck, it's up to you, this is just an opinion.

This came to my mind too, holding X on boot or rb, but my 360 didn't come with a power supply so I couldn't try, I appologize for making it confusing. Even though you're confused, your post helped because I will try the same procedure with my Jasper when it arrives, and if there are any errors I will try what you suggested with XEX menu and RB. If youd like I could let you know how things turn out, but it will take awhile cause my parents canceled Internet service cause They think it keeps me up late at night and it will be awhile before I get my new xbox. so thanks again.

Thanks for the advice. I would ask the seller to do this procedure, but it would just be ignorant to make him do any more than he already has for me. Even if I offered cash, it would probably be found obnoxious. I guess this depends on who you are, but I feel it is my responsibility to do this, and if I messed up last time, doing proper research and reading (like you said), and finally getting my results, I would feel a sense of achievement. When I messed up my xbox I felt like an idiot, this would be like me redeeming myself. I apologize for the confusion. I think I will keep reading and give it a try. If it fails, I will be the one fixing it this time. thanks.

The easiest thing to do is install 12611 and not bother with 12625. Is there a specific reason you want that version on your machine?
