Ok. QUICK TUTORIAL FOR XLINUX. i have used it many times to fix my own broken box after E Drive boot gone wrong , and to flash a v1.2 Winbond TSOP using Raincoat .51

Burn xlinux1.2c.iso from xbins (i figure u know where , i found it under PC/Hdd Apps)

performe swap method (see x-s for tutorials..)

Dont stress if u get a HDD Master fail , ect.. MINE DID but xlinux worked fine

Make sure CDROM (with xlinux iso) is on primary master second ide channel

BOOT PC from CDROM (xlinux)

press enter when u get the xlinux screen

XLINUX NOW BOOTS

(if u get errors , it normally mean the xbox harddrive isnt unlocked)

it will hang on a certain line.. (u will know when) press CTRL + C

try gogo (to mount xbox harddrive)

NOW.. my CDROM wasnt mounted using GOGO , so it wouldnt copy anything

To fix. Mount manually using mount -t iso9660 /dev/hdd /mnt

to find the xlinux CD use: cd mnt

To Copy files use: cp

eg.

cp /mnt/xsaves/* /xbox/udata/

If anyone has problems , i will make a more detailed tutorial.

and ONCE U FINISH , type: reboot
(to clear the filesystem , and unmount xbox drive clearly)

I renamed files by using: cp

so: cp xbox.xtf xboxxtf.olf

ls = dir

cd = change directory
cp = copy

woohoo! it worked a treat.. xlinux boot cd is the bomb for the HD swap trick!!

also: name your font files before you put them on the xbox hd, i found xlinux had trouble with the spaces in XBox Book.xtf

Its simple to add a file with spaces, just put quotation marks around the file!

Example:

cp "Xbox Book.xtf" /mnt/xbox
mv bert.xtf ./"Xbox Book.xtf" etc...

simple...

For those having trouble getting Xlinux to boot - as I did -

Use Smart Boot Manager, download the DOS version and install it, boot with the floppy in the drive.

Pick the CD-ROM option

It WILL boot xlinux then!! W00t!

You can get it at:

http://btmgr.sourceforge.net

I guarantee it WILL solve your NON bootable CD problems!
