I was doing some ftp transfers with filezilla earlier when it froze and quit. Now I can't delete the files that I was transfering. When I try to format the internal 256mb memory, it says "There was a problem performing that action." Is there any utility I can run like chkdsk to find and fix disk errors on my internal memory? Or any alternative way to restore the partition to it's original state?

You could dump the nand then manually erase the memory area, then flash it back and then reformat.

Thank you for the response. So I can use flash 360 to dump the nand. But how do I erase the memory part? Sorry I'm a newb.

Assuming this is a JTAG, you can use Flash360 to read and write the nand. Anyone with a JTAG/RGH should back up their whole nand. If you need a donor 256MB bin image, I'm sure someone here can give you one.

This one has RGH installed, but I did not do it myself. I didn't want to buy a nand reader for 1 time use, so I found someone to do it for me. I am backing up the current nand now. My question is how do I clear the memory part of it?

Well I was backing up the nand. And I'm getting a ton of errors reading parts of it, status 250. I had about 5 or 6 bad blocks last time I updated the kernel, but I have hundreds now.

I see xebuild has an option "disable nand mu" I assume that makes the 256mb partition unreadable by the xbox. I guess that's the next best thing.

I should of been a bit clearer.

Make sure you keep a backup of all files incase things go wrong!

This is what I was talking about, leave the Xbox as is, with the memory corrupt etc, as it was when you wrote the original post.

Then load up xexmenu or FSD, grab usb drive with flash360v1, then run it. Dump the nand. Then clear out everything after 64mb's with nandpro.
eg nandpro originalnand.bin: -e64 1001

Then write it back to the xbox via flash360v1.

Then reboot and try to format the MU again.

Or if you have one, connect the xbox to USB spi read/writer, then use the command

nandpro usb: -e64 1001

Then reboot and try to format the MU again.
