This entire FAQ is out of date - the latest versions of EvolutionX can lock and unlock the HDD with a simple menu command. biggrin.gif

can you explain to me how that works? i've always wanted to know how

if i had a unlocked hard drive with a modchip running and i wanted to say put it on an exploit box, the hdd would have to be locked with the virgin box's key

if i had the virgin box load evox with the lock commands from dvd-rom
put in a hard drive with all the exploit files in there while it's still on
and i goto menu and push lock
it will lock with that xbox's unique key?
then the virgin will play off the new hdd?

I need some help guys!

I have had the chip containging the HD key replaced on my Xbox to fix another non functional xbox (dont ask...)

I have the key for the new chip. I am running evox on an unlocked 120gb hd, and everything still runs fine. HOWEVER, if i ever try and load the original dashboard i get the genieric error even through it worked fine beforeve replaced the dashboard files to no avail. Any ideas why this happens? If i lock my HD will this solve the problem?

Yes i am about 95% sure that to get to any original xbox program you have to lock it and have a bios that boots to something other than xboxdash.xbe you must leave your orginal xbox dash named that. I know that my xbox kept giving me error 21 when I tried to load the orginal xbox dashboard untill I locked it.

well.. ive been reading this thread and it almost answers a question of mine... i have a FRAG xbox.. im going to buy a replacement motherboard and install that.. is there ANY way i can run the old harddrive without having to switch the EPROM chip? i mean.. after i have a modchip installed with the latest evox BIOS, could i take the new harddrive that comes with the motherboard out and plug my old harddrive in and have evox lock it with the new motherboards key so that i can use that harddrive when the chip is off? is that possible to do because i really dont want to solder anything

I have a softmodded box that I want to swap drives with my modded box. How do I make my softmod recognize and run the drive and run evox?

I have a modded xbox and lately I've been getting the red flashing light and the error message. It just did that one day. The error code is 5 which I believe means my hdd is not locked but I've been using the box for months and this is the first time I've had this problem. I have an executer 2.2 pro modchip. can anyone help me?
