During this time I forgot to back up my C and E partitions. I hooked up the xbox hd to an old comp with XBOXHDM 1.9 to rebuild C partition but I can't unlock it. The eeprom.bin is on the xbox hd but I don't know how to access it because now I can't FTP into my xbox. I realize there were mistakes made by me.<---n00b But is there anyway to fix my xbox? If I can gain FTP access and get the eeprom I think I can unlock my hd and fix it with xboxhdm but I don't have any idea how to do that. Please help.
Okay, if you couldn't unlock your HD, then your Xbox wouldn't boot. Everytime you turn it on, the Xbox unlocks the HD. You can still keep it unlocked even without the key. Right aftet the Xbox animation screen, pull the IDE cable. It should get frozen on the MS Dash (all you'll see is the green webbing) and your box will stay unlocked. Or you can run a game for about a minute and then pull the IDE cable (While the game is still on and stays on until your done). That always works.
