First I want to thank you for such a great job making our old xboxes work like a charm!
Some months ago I followed this great tutorial to softmod my old xbox. Hotswapped and installed ndure 3.1 through xbox hdm. I made an eeprom backup, included it into de boot cd, and swapped the hard drive for a 500gb one. I finally installed xbmc as the main dashboard and everything has gone like a charm.
I decided to get another xbox from eBay to give it to a friend as a present.
I got a very cheap one, with broken dvd and quite dirty. I also got a transparent cover.
This morning I received the xbox and I prepared the ndure dvd for the console kernel, but in the last moment I switched dvds by accident, and I used the wrong one, from the other xbox, with a different kernel.
In ndure dvd I selected option 2, xbrowser, ndure, did the backup of c, and while copying the ndure files, the dvd started making ugly noises and gave a read-error. Damn!
I started xbrowser again and run ndure install, after cleaning the dvd (and I didn't notice it was the wrong one, fool of me!!) without rebooting, and this time the process finished ok.
As the xbox didn't boot properly, I restarted from the dvd and recovered original msdash, deleting everything in c, and copying manually all files from e/backup.
Luckily the msdash started again and I even changed the date and time with no apparent problems.
Then, when I wanted to start again I noticed I had been using the wrong dvd.
This time I used the right dvd with kernel 4034. All the process went ok, and I switched back the hd into the xbox.
Now something very strange has happened. It is something like a weird output problem.
After the mslogo boot screen it loads unleash-x, but the audio and video are constantly "blinking". I can't read anything, because the image just appears for a short instant and then goes off repeatedly, and the audio is also affected by this pulsating behaviour.
I can connect to the ftp without problems, but I can't do nothing else.
If I insert an original game, after the mslogo, I get the same pulsating issues.
I have tried AID 4.X, but with same results, I can't read any text, so I can't enter the menus...
Can someone figure out what has happended with my xbox?
Can I backup my eeprom and start from scratch with a bigger hd? How?
Any help please, I'm stuck here
