Will the bricked Xbox boot a game? If so, grab a post 2004 Live-enabled game (Halo 2 or later), load it, and start to sign in to live. You don't need a network connection. If you are lucky the first thing the game will do is restore the dash.

Hotswapping always carries a risk of bricking a disk, so now that you have one Xbox modded grab an exploitable game (Splinter Cell is probably best because all copies of the game including the Platinum Hits version are exploitable) and an Xbox memory card. FTP the Krayzie 1.1.1 gamesave onto your modded Xbox (or take the copy from the HeXEn disc) and copy the numbered folder to the root of the memory card. Copy it onto the unmodded Xbox, run the game, load the gamesave, mod the Xbox.

i dont have any games at all

i think it may be well past the point where i can restore the dash , ive already attempted to wipe the fatx partition and had a go at building a new xbox from scratch

keeps telling me the xbox partition not found on dev/hda

i think if i had some tool for partitioning the xbox drive either in linux or windows i might stand a chance of getting it running again

So, go and buy or borrow a game...... although if you've wiped the partitions you may well be right, and you probably need to start thinking about a chip or an eeprom reader.

i will leave the eeprom reader as last resort

gonna give this ago


>> HDprepar
Ziki wrote this little windows program to prepare a hard drive for xbox. It writes zeros and partition info on the hd. So, you don't need to use Winhex anymore. (to make new HD ready for Evox HDswap (only for first release of evox))
>>Download<< || >>Latest version: v1.3<<


currently running , will let you know how it goes


thanks again for all your help

Well Back up the eeprom and ftp it to your pc..
if the hard disk is to blame then you definatly want that eeprom file.
