About To Toss Xbox Out The Window
Posted 25 May 2011 - 05:16 AM
Fresh xbox, 5101 kernel 5960 dash.
XboxHDM USB version, Ndure 3.1
I backed up before I started, installed ndure (using option 1), and it gave me write error HD full
tried option 2, xbox boots error 21
restored backup, xbox boots ok
install ndure option 1, disk full
Tried to download a clean 5960 dash, wiped C:, putted it on there, boots error 21
No matter what I do, I either end up with a damn disk full, error 21, stock dash, or stuck at xbox logo

scullc once released versions of xboxhdm2.2 that was problematic and booted to error 21 with stock msdash files and this was confirmed with user reports which Bomb Bloke collated. That version was since withdrawn and the version in the thread was packaged with RMPrepUSB which works.
Delete xbox.xtf and xbox book.xtf on C root and see if that helps in the disk full problem.

The version of xboxhdm I was using was indeed the RMPrep version.

unzipped fresh ms-c files from AID disk
put it in hdm/C
made fresh ndure 3.1 choosing basic, kernel 5101 and hdm install (even though I dont use the ndure script that
comes with it since it doesnt work with usb, using the script that comes with the xboxhdm rprep), AND put that in hdm/ndure/C & E
when its booted, type xboxhd2, then 1, then 2, then xboxhd, then 2 (rebuild C), at that last step after it formats C it always finds the files in hdm/ndure instead of just /hdm/C, so I put the usb back in my other computer and just delete Ndure for now, then it finds the files in /C (mind you at this time I had to reboot the damn computer because it doesnt update the file locations, so now reboot, hotswap, go thru all steps over agian up until rebuild C)
Then finally after it finds the right files in /C and copied them into the right place, remove HD and put back into xbox
Xbox boots error 13...............
Then I google error 13, says basically to just reinstall softmod on the wiki.
Reput Ndure stuff on flash drive, go to Ndure script, choose backup (after I already deleted the old backup), backup runs for about 10 mins then a ton of scrolling pops up complaining about no HD space.
So now I go check /E/Backup and theres only 1 folder, Audio, and inside that theres another folder Audio, and inside that another folder audio, and that keeps going what seems like forever.
So then I go to /C/ to see wth is in there, and theres only 2 folders, 1 audio and I forgot the other. and those folders have folders inside of folders forever
At this point I say wth and I go check /hdm/c and all the files are in there properly.
I've been at this for days straight and I don't understand wtf is going on. I've done local xbox 360 modding for the past 2 years, all drives models, built my own tools, so it's not like I have no clue on how to troubleshoot, but this crap is rediculous.

Said f-it and tried to get the one computer (that I was able to get into windows and use xplorer360 on) to detect it agian. What I had to do was spam press a key while the bios was loading (old school dell with the bios that has a loading bar) to stall it from actually loading, then did the hotswap.
Got into windows and xplorer360 detected it
Then followed the tutorial in the link you gave (even tho I had ALREADY followed that same tut word for word), except this time I had used the ms-c dashboard that was on my USB stick from the previous attempts (same one from AID disk).
As a side note, when I used xplorer360 to copy the Ndure files into the C partition AFTER I had put the fresh MS-C dashboard into it (deleted everything in C then putted fresh files). When It got to xboxdash.XBE it asked me if I wanted to overwrite, which I did. Also I deleted xbox and xbox boot files in C as instructed in the tut.
Booted with the dash
Now, what I'm still pissed about is
A. Why did it work this time and not the first time when I tried the Xplorer360 route.
B. Why was I getting the "hard disk full" error when using xboxhdm, EVEN ON THE FIRST VIRGIN ATTEMPT
C. If it wasn't for xplorer360, I would still be sitting here losing hair. Which means if I tried to do this a year ago, i'd still be S-O-L right now. Which means there must be something not working right with XboxHDM

Now to install some roms and stuff

I gone half bald dealing with this, but now I'm happy to have a new toy to play with (Hijacked this xbox from my kids after they got a 360 2 years ago, been in the closet collecting dust).
Now to install some roms and stuff
You make the 2nd person so far that I've seen who had success with xplorer360 where xboxhdm was failing. Why wouldn't just copying files straight over via midnight commander not do the same thing? Could this have anything to do with Linux and its permissions/naming scheme? I notice some of the files are coming up as xboxda_~1 or something similar.
