Thanks for more ideas guys.
I recently tried HeXEn before I posted here to redo the softmod. It made no difference once the Xbox was bricked.
However running Krayzie's NDURE 1.1.1 directly from the Xbox sounds interesting. How would I do that?
Oddly on top of all this I bricked the Xbox last night, was doing the booting then orange light & off thing, gave up for the night and went to bed.
Turned it on this morning and it fired right up like nothing had ever happened. It is starting to look more and more like hardware which is a shame really, I guess I'll just have to Jtag the exploitable 360 I have here instead.
It's a shame really as like I said if I restore the drive to defaults it works perfectly.
What is meant by run HeXen to re-do softmod is...get ur xbox back up and softmodded the way you've been doing it 1st...once its running again, dont FTP anything, dont do anything but boot HeXen...and re-do the softmod...obviously you cant do it like this after its bricked...
As far as running Krayzies directly...i think, not sure, maybe someone will come along and correct me, but after you run NDURE to be able to create your xboxhdm disc...and since ur having trouble FTP'ing afterwards, you can create a folder on E called UDATA and put the Krayzie's 1.1.1 gamesave folder(s) in the root of UDATA...so yes, you would have to create a new xboxhdm disc...but once your box is softmodded with NDURE, you could then use file browser/manager to locate the install.xbe for Krayzies and run that package...then softmod with it normally.
This is the method of running tsop packages directly on previously softmodded xboxes...so it should work...of course if HeXen doesnt work, and this doesnt work...then you got other problems...orange led and then immediate shutdown is new on me.
In fact, what version is your xbox? if its not a 1.6 you may want to TSOP it and be done with it...then you wont have to hotswap etc anymore...plus would rule out any stock kernel corruption that could be causing the issue in the 1st place...you dont necessarily have to solder...can always use a conductive ink pen to bridge the tsop read/write enable points.This post has been edited by JohnnyHunng: Nov 19 2011, 06:13 PM
