okay from the start - i softmodded my stock xbox with stock hdd and i stupidly deleted the dash files so when i booted up my xbox it was stuck at the green xbox logo , so then i got my xbox ready for hotswap by removing dvd ide and getting error 12 so hotswapped and i didnt know what i was doing with xboxhdm and randomly typed lockhd and entered random password and then i put the hdd back and restarted xbox and know i have error 6 and i also have no eeprom backup
you really should be able to unlock it with xboxhdm then using XBOXSCENE as your password because it sets that as the master password when you use it. When its unlocked "if you properly softmoded your xbox" you can find the eeprom.bin in e:\backups
If i were you i would..
Dissconnect all hhard drives from my pc.
connect the xbox hard disk to primary IDE channel 1 as master. Connect a IDE cd/dvd player to primary ide channel 2 as slave.
Boot with xboxhdm select option 3 and type unlockhd -p XBOXSCENE
It should unlock it..
i would then reconnect 1 hard disk. So i could boot to windows with the xbox hard disk still attached. the cd rom drive is not importaint for now.. and install xplorer360.
I would then use xplorer360 to view the hard disk and try to find the eeprom.bin
if its there i would burn a new xboxhdm disk with the eeprom file in the correct folder. and use that disk to lock the hard disk using xboxhdm -a.
If you cant unlock the hard disk.. then you are out one hard disk. You can repair the xbox with a new hard disk and a eeprom reader + ponyprog.
If you can unlock the hard disk but you cant find an eeprom.bin because you did not make a backup at all.. then you will need an eeprom reader to fix it.
hope this helps.
If you want to waste money shipping the thing back and forth i can have a look at it for you i have an eeprom reader and some 40gb hard disks if your hard disk is stuck being locked.
This would probably cost you more in shipping alone than getting a working second hand xbox and moding it again would cost you.
and a new hard disk would not be free if i had to replace it either.
ofvourse if your in north wales and within reasonable traveling distance you could just bring it with you and i could have a look at it that way, but i doubt you are any where near me.This post has been edited by shambles1980: Sep 6 2011, 05:48 PM
