Last night I used the mechinstaller to softmod my xbox. I have a ver. 1.1 and know where the solder points are... I have searched the forums but I cant find a definitive guide on what to do next.
When I used mechinstaller, I opted to have UnleashX as my default dash. Should I go back and uninstall the mod and do it again with evox and flash the bios from there?
The tutorials I have read are for a non modded xbox except for this one:
This is the way I do it with MA.
First, the M7 works nicely.
Just make it to a 1 meg bios. (Take 4x 256 to make 1x 1 meg bios)
Copy save file to mem card from modded xbox->memcard->unmodded xbox.
Boot the un-modded with MA, load savefile from campaign.
From there, ftp over the 1 meg bios to the bios folder.
Boot MA, then load save file, select flash bios from menu.
I understand all of that except the bios. I know where the usual places are, I know how to get the bios from the usual places to my PC... PC to mem card.. mem card to xbox but i dont understand when they said "Copy save file to mem card from modded xbox->memcard" how do you get it from usual places to the modded xbox without being on a mem card first?
Are they saying that the save game that is on the modded xbox is he one that did the initial mod in the first place? If so I have that bitch on a mem card ready to go into any xbox I come across...
I have the slushie doc, good tutorial but it's for 007 and seemed to jump around a bit. Is there an up-to-date definitive tutorial or guide for mechassault?
Also, I have Slayers AID... it use to work on a different box but not this one. The weird thing is that I am using the same exact DVD drive. Only difference is the other box that Slayers worked on was a 1.0 and this one is a 1.1... any ideas?
Just to put this out there... my goal is to run a 2.5" HDD without a dvd drive. What bios should I get to accommodate that? I do not need to change the flubber, no color changes, nothing fancy. Also, if I opt to not have a DVD drive will I be able to hook one up from time to time to rip games to the HDD?
I know that was a lot. I'm sorry. I'm still learning and a lot of the stuff I'm finding 404's or is for something I do not have. I am a mechinstaller... not a 007AUFinstaller
Thanks in advance,
