It seems like the EEPROM is screwed, it does that sometimes when changing resolutions or region settings.
If you have a 1.0-1.5 version Xbox, this is a way to fix it..
Get the X2 4981.06 bios and Xbtool and a copy of your EEPROM.bin (or someone elses), the X2 4981 bios allows embedded eeprom which means using Xbtool to embed a fresh eeprom image inside the X2 bios, so when you boot this bios from the modchip it also boots the eeprom replacing your corrupt one. Once it boots normaly you can then load Configmagic on the Xbox to look at and fix your real eeprom.
You will need a programmer to flash your modchip, or someone elses xbox to flash it.
You could also desolder your eeprom chip and swap it for a new one, as long as your hard drive is unlocked.
I just wanted to update this thread with my successes (sp?). Modbox_ you were right, my eeprom was hosed. I took your suggestion and got the 4981.06 bios, flashed my chip and was able to see a dashboard. I was able to keep flashbios on bank 1, so flashing the chip later was not an issue.
I used ConfigMagic on the Slayer disc and was able to reflash my eeprom with the one default one on the Slayer DVD. After switching it out of german, I was pretty much good to go.
Modbox I owe you the biggest thanks a noob can offer
. I thought she was a goner, or at the very least I was going to have to throw money at the box to fix her. Again a big THANKS Modbox_
