Many peoples ask how to install xdsl 0.2 on their xbox. Since i'm not able to sleep, and kinda high, i decided to write a small howto on this.
To do so, you will need :
- A computer with windows and an internet connection
- A .zip extractor (i recommend WinRAR
- A FTP Client (i recommend Core FTP
- A copy of Isobuster
- A modded Xbox (modchip, TSOP, or softmodded)
- A dashboard with FTP feature (unleashx, evolutionx)
- xDSL 0.2
Start by installing the extractor and the ftp client. Download xdsl-0.2.zip somewhere on your computer, if you don't already have it.Extracting the files
Open xdsl-0.2.zip with WinRAR.
Extract all the files to C:/xdsl (or where you want)
You can now close WinRAR and open IsoBuster.
Open the xdsl-0.2.iso file and extract the files to c:/xdsl/extracted (i'll edit this section tomorrow with screenshots and details, cause i'm on xdsl right now and i don't remember wich one you got to extract)Transfert the files over the Xbox
Your C:/xdsl/extracted folder should now look like this : (screenshot tomorrow sorry)
Open Core FTP and setup a new connection according to your Xbox parameters (again, screenshot tomorrow)
Connect to your Xbox. You should see something like this : (tomorrow...)
Double click on the E partition
Now drag and drop the files from C:/xdsl/extracted in the E partition, and wait for the transfert to complete.Start Linux
You'll fiirst need to add launch link to your dashboard pointing over the xromwell xbe.
If you use Unleashx, edit the config.xml like this : (yea i know, screenshot tomorrow)
For Evolutionx, edit the evox.ini like this : (
Reboot. To launch linux, simply use the Linux link. The next screen should look like this : (i promise u i'll do thoses screenshot right after breakfast tomorrow
In about a minute, linux should boot!
Note : If xromwell freeze at the blue loading screen, try to remove your dvd dongle, your usb mouse/keyboard, and any controller that are connected. This is a know bug in xromwell. You can also use the shallax gentoox loader, that seem to be more compatible with those usb devices.What to do now?
I'll add this section tomorrow. I'll explain how to setup a swapfile, do a loopback/native install, reactivate the mouse scroll, desactivate the onscreem leyboard, reactivate apt-get, all with screenshots and detailled info!!
For now, this tutorial is really incomplete. But it's 1am over canada and i'm starting to be r eally tired. I promise you all that i'll add the screenshots and complete it really shortly. Please excuse all the gramatical errors, i'm having such a hard time writing this in english!!
And thanks to all the xdsl crew for this incredible distro!!!!
