First of, if you read this you most likly have a blackscreen and do not know how to fix it.
Now is a good time to listen and remeber to ALWAYS read the cvs_readme*.txt that often comes with a new cvs build.
This is a "old" problem and shouldn´t exist if the readme was read, but enough of me rambeling about things that you now pretty much will do everytime you get a new build.
First thing todo is to get the Enigmah Videomode Switchdisc.
Check around the forums if you do not know where to get it, but please do not ask for it since it is built with the XDK and asking for xdk binaries is against forum rules.
When you got the files burn them to a CD-R/RW or a DVD-R/RW and add a dummy file, 50-100Mb in size called 1.bin or something like that!.
(Use XISO or any other program able to extract and build XIso files)
Boot the xbox with it and Press A (for Pal) or B (for NTSC)
Then reboot the xbox and the video should be back.
If not try to boot the disc again and now press B if you pressed A first or the other way around. (You get it i hope...)
If you can ftp to your box, then you could remote execute the enigmah default.xbe, after you ftp it over. Or , if you use Evo-X, make a link to it in the evox.ini so that it is the first item selected when you boot up.
Then just launch it by pressing A.
End Update(Thanks to akarnid for this tip/idea)
Update from yomamaspimp :
I was about to give up when I tried ftp'ing all the files to the console and it worked !
Console wouldn't boot enigmah with any disc format.
Make sure u got video cables disconnected so u can at least boot up the console with no picture.
Copy all files to the console as you would burn em onto a disc to a new folder
Then using FlashFXP use a raw command execute default.xbe on the default.xbe file extracted from enigmah, give it a sec, press B (or A depending on settings), turn off console, plug video cable back on and reboot.
If you still havent got any picture then it aint over yet.
Easiest is to try and see if you got another tv (@parents/friends house) that might support NTSC-j and restore back to NTSC-M.
If that wont work either i got a last step for you (or two even)
When in xbmp press DOWN 2 times. (1 time if you have TV-Guide set to false in the config.xml)
Press A 1 time.
Press DOWN 5 times.
Press RIGHT 1 time.
Press A 1 time.
Press DOWN 3 times.
Press A 1 time.
Turn the XBox off and on again, and picture should be back.
If this didn´t work (it should!) you have now the last thing you can try, but i can NOT take responsabilaty for this one.
It should work fine with 1.0 and 1.1 XBox´s, but like i said, i can´t say it will work with 1.2 or 1.3 XBox´s 100%.
This is a c&p from CONFIG MAGIC´s readme:
Blind Restore EEPROM if you have no Video image:
Usage: (MAKE SURE YOU HAVE A VALID EEPROM.BIN in DATA)
(NOTE: If you have used evo-x and the backup option you will have backup files in c:backup)
1) Boot ConfigMagic from DVD Drive
2) Press A button to Skip Video (press A untill you see the orange light flash)
3) Wait untill eject light flashes orange (flashing orange means ConfigMagic is ready)
4) To Start Hold BOTH triggers and press WHITE button !
5) Orange light stops flashing and stays steady (Steady orange means busy)
6) If successfull Eject light will Flash GREEN (Flash Green means success!)
*IF there was a problem loading/decrypting eeprom, Eject light will turn RED (Red means Error !)
Making this one pinned.
Post suggestions etc.
