Quick Softmod Question
Posted 25 August 2011 - 06:01 PM
I want to get into MS Dash in order to change his video settings to get it outputting HD but I am unsure how softmods work. I am fairly certain that there is no shadow C virtual eeprom setup on it. Will I screw things up if I go into MS Dash? Will the softmod even allow me to go into it? Thought I would ask here before I poke around too much as I don't feel like trying to softmod this setup again if I screw it up.

The cleanest solution is to grab HeXEn (Google Heimdall's Xbox Engineering Disc) and use its one-click softmod to update the softmod to a known, stable one that will allow you to run the MS Dash. HeXEn also has scripted tools to do things like enable HD modes etc., plus lots of other useful tools. HeXEn also has the advantage that it will allow you to boot past the mismatched eeprom video mode problem to be able to repair it, or at the very least to allow you to easily do a blind reset on the video mode.

By the way, awesome piece of software, I could have used this a lot of times by now.

If it doesn't then use HeXEn. It won't mess up his games / apps. It will delete any gamesaves for Splinter Cell, Mechassault and 007:Agent Under Fire, but leaves all other gamesaves untouched. It installs UnleashX as its dash, but gives you the option to switch to Evox.
You select either 2.1.2 to install a Kingroach softmod, or one of options 2.2.5-2.2.7 to install a Krayzie softmod. If your friend still has 007:AUF I'd suggest you use that option (2.2.5), if not then use option 2.2.7 (Splinter Cell) because all copies of Splinter Cell are exploitable and you can pick them up for pennies. Don't worry, you don't need the game to do the upgrade, it's just a useful back door for the future.
Once Krayzie is installed and working you reboot with HeXEn and select option 6.2 to enable the HD modes.

If your friend wants to keep his current version of XBMC then you need to rename his current XBMC directory to something else, do the installation as described in the post above, but instead of deleting XBMC then replacing it with the latest version you delete it then replace it with the copy from the renamed directory.
If you want to put XBMC on E and keep his current version and its setup then follow the post exactly, but instead of using FTP to install the latest version you copy the version from F.
