Softmod, New Hdd
Posted 26 June 2012 - 07:54 PM
some weeks ago i just used my xBox again. It has a softmod, which I sometimes ago a friend of me did. So I don't know what softmod is installed / used at the moment. Also I can't say, at what partition (C, E or F) the softmod is, but i think it is F.
My actual Dashboard is EVO-X, which i installed over the original softmod with the "Firefuckers X-Disk". Im reading for days now but still don't know whats wrong. I can FTP to my xBox and tried to install a larger hard drive with 40gigabyte.
So i copied the EEPROM, the C and the E partition to my computer, burned the CD with xboxhdm and booted from it, with the new HDD as primary master connected to my computer. I followed the instructions and prepared a new hdd for my xbox. At the end i was able to lock it successfully.
So then i put the new HDD into my xBox - and the softmod is gone. It starts correctly, but I only see the original MS-Dashboard, also I'm not able anymore to boot from copied disks, it only reads the original ones. If i switch the harddrives again, my old softmod is working again. Because I thought the softmod could be on F, i tried it once again and burned the C again, now including the F folder. But the result is the same, the softmod is gone.
Have you any idea, what i could do? And which dashboard is the most up-to-date, which i should use on my new hdd? Is reinstalling the dashboard (or even the whole softmod) recommended, because the old softmod is screwed (it's not on C i think). How do i do so? Please help me to finally make my xBox an awesome console, which i will love to use again

A clean softmod is always a better idea.
Read the links in my signature - "Softmod Hard Drive Upgrades" for the various methods available to upgrade your hard drive, and "Build a new softmod disk with eeprom" if you want to use xboxhdm.

Just one more question: What install-disc should i use to install EvoX, XMBC, Skins, Applications, etc.? Is there a good all-in-one thingy? Since yet i was using the x-disk, but i think there might be better ones, aren't there?
Many, many thanks!

I then stopped yesterday because i was a bit frustrated. Now I'm gonna re-format the hdd with xboxhdm and the ndure files - this time I'm going to try your HeXEn Disc. Because I don't want to do something wrong again and then have to do all the steps over and over again, could you please give me a short explanation what actions I should perform when i boot the HeXEn Disc to get a stable and clean UnleashX / EvoX / XBMC?
Many thanks in advance

Just one last question: It seems like my DVD Drive is Damaged. While reading disks it is very loud and playing instant from disk is not possible because it is laggy as hell. So i have to copy all games to my hdd, but that takes a long time (1 hour) because the drive is bad. The transfer rate is at about 0.5mb per second.
Any idea what to do or where to get a new cheap drive?
Thanks for anything
