Softmodded Xbox Freezes On Boot When Clock Unset After Hd Upgrade
Posted 10 June 2012 - 12:09 AM
I used the directions from that tutorial to upgrade the HDD, but I slightly modifed them. This was due to the fact that I don't have a DVD burner and all the stuff on the old HDD was too big to fit on a 700mb CD. I am pretty sure I followed the directions completely, but DIDN'T copy the e:\apps folder to the CD. after following the normal directions the rest of the way, I FTP'ed into the xbox and copied the E:\apps folder onto the new HDD. I also copied a lot of other stuff to make sure the new HDD was an exact copy of the old. this was because the CD I used was one I made over a year ago when I tried to upgrade the harddrive the first time. the harddrive I used that first time turned out to have the click of death and I went back to the old drive about a week afterward.
Sorry if I posted this in the wrong forum or it was WAY too descriptive. And maybe I might not be as much a noob as some of the people here are. I have a lot of PC troubleshooting knowledge, but just not a whole lot of experience with the xbox and (modern) game system modding in general.

See if that fixes it for you..
I can only imagine its a corrupted/missing dash issue. but that should pop up an error 16..
Softmods should not need the clock set though so its a perculiar situation.
any way.. if the hexen disk fixes your issue i would then recomend fremoving the clock cap if your xbox is version 1.0-1.5 as they leak and tend to eat through traces on the xbox causing issues.

clock needing to be reset every few mins = bad cap..
So seriously reinstall the softmod using hexen "krazies 1 click softmod install to unleash -x would be my recomendations..
then get that clock cap out of the xbox..
you may want to have some lemon juice or vinegar handy..
If any of that electro crap leaked out you will want to try and neutralize it with the acidic lemon juice or vinegar..
just pour a little on there then wipe it down, if you have some isopropyl alcohol handy use that to clean the board after..
that will prevent the stuff eating through your xbox..
of course if you prefer you can wait till it looks more like this..
Personaly id get the job done now..

They have a Gold clock cap near the IDE port..
I think that its C7G10 for the 1.0-1.1
and C7G3 for 1.2-1.5
they all have a funny design though where you could have set a cap slightly to the left or right (if you see the picture i posted you will see how there are 4 holes and 2 white outlines.. but only 1 capacitor..)
They all have this same layout so you can find them if my C# were wrong..
But Update your softmod with hexen 1st..
that way you wont have to reset the clock.

you can download Hexen For hard disk Drive not dvd
just google "Hexen For hard disk Drive not dvd"
You will find it fast i edited it especialy for people who cant make the dvd or use the dvd excetera..
You will also want to download. a cfg file i edited after uploading it..
the 1st link you find should take you to a web page with me making comments on the page..
the last comment is me again and has the link to the cfg file you need.
So you can re softmod properly without a dvd burner.
And when your properly softmoded you can get that time bomb of a capasator out of your xbox.
Remember that heimdall made hexen. all i did was edit a few files and update the xbmc on it..
"seemed like a lot of work for individuals to do especialy if they werent all that computer literate, so i did the editing"
