Note: This tutorial was made by Textbook with help from Horscht and others. This can be very risky, as I myself literally broke my xbox about 8 times before I got this to work. Hopefully, I will be saving many people some time and frustration.
First off, I think everybody who is reading this tutorial should start off at the same point. Therefore, I recommend everybody uses Krayzie's UXE Installer 2.8. You WILL need an exploitable game to follow this tutorial. The first thing that needs to be done is make sure everybody gets a fresh, new, clean UXE install. Grab your exploitable game and get Krayzie's UXE Installer from the usual places. If your softmod is already installed, I highly recommend removing it and doing it over again using Krayzie's. I will not go too in-depth over installing Krayzie's UXE because it is very easy. Once you have it installed, you should be able to boot up and go to your dashboard of choice. If you can't get to the dashboard, then you are already lost, and must redo the softmod to get it working. Once you have the softmod working, hit eject and pop in your exploitable game. This is necessary because if you loaded your softmod, you would be loading NKPatcher, which would not show you all the "true" files on your C drive. You need these files, so when you boot the exploitable game, you are not loading NKPatcher and can then see all of those "true" files.
After your exploitable game has loaded, run your exploit and go to the UnleashX dash. You will usually be given the options of Switching the Softmod on or off, Removing the softmod, Extras, or Dashboard Settings.
Now, keep your xbox at this screen and set the controller down. All you need to do now is FTP into your xbox while it is sitting at this screen. Then go into the C: root. Transfer the Cbackup folder to your computer's desktop. It may take a while, but you should wait for it to finish. Open up your Cbackup folder that is on your computer's desktop and compare it with the following images.
This is what you may see if you FTP'ed Incorrectly:
This is what you will see if you FTP'ed Correctly:
After making sure that your Cbackup folder is correct, please continue on by CAREFULLY following the next steps in order.
1. On your computer's desktop, find the file Cbackup/xboxdash.xbe
2. Right click on this file and rename it to xboxdash.bak
3. On your computer's desktop, find the folder Cbackup/fonts
4. Right click on this folder and rename it to f0nts (notice the zero)
5. Open Flash FXP
6. Transfer the xboxdash.bak you just made (Desktop/Cbackup/xboxdash.bak) to the root of the C: drive.
7. Transfer the f0nts folder you just made (Desktop/Cbackup/f0nts) to the root of the C: drive.
8. On your Xbox, delete the file xbox.xtf from the root of the C: drive.
9. On your Xbox, delete the file xbox book.xtf from the root of the C: drive.
When you are all done, this is what your Xbox's C: drive should look like.
Now, you can close Flash FXP. Hit the power button on your xbox, and then hit eject after it has been powered off. Take out your exploitable game and make sure your xbox and your softmod are both still working. Now, you will have to find the file Krayzie_EEE_Installer_v1.0.rar. This is not in the usual places, and never will be. You will have to search for a long time to find this file. Please do not request links to files on here, or you will be banned. There are many "bad" versions of Krayzie's EEE installer floating around on the internet. Many of these "bad" downloads contain all the correct information but an incorrect config.xml file. If you do manage to find Krayzie_EEE_Installer_v1.0.rar, extract it with winRAR and then go to the following directory.
Right click on the config.xml file and open it with wordpad. Highlight the ENTIRE text and delete it to have a blank document. From there, you will be copying a tried-and-true correct config.xml file. Go to THIS FORUM TOPIC.
Scroll down until you see a little post # 55 on the right side of your screen. This is a post by Horscht and includes the full xml in a box. Start at the very beginning and go to the very end to highlight all of the code. Right click on this and hit copy. Go back to the blank config.xml and hit paste. Then, hit File, Save.
You should now have a "good" copy of Krayzie's EEE installer.
Now, open up Flash FXP and connect to your xbox again. It doesn't matter if you are running your softmod or are running the gamesave exploit. Transfer the folder EEEinstaller to E:/Apps. It must be placed here, as it will not work anywhere else. Also, you must make sure there are no Splinter Cell saves on your Xbox. If Splinter Cell is the only way of rescuing your Xbox, reboot your Xbox and go to the xbox dashboard. Use the memory manager to copy the Splinter Cell save and a Linux Installer save to your memory card. Then, FTP into your xbox and delete the following folders:
Once those are deleted, and you have done all the previous steps, and you put the EEEinstaller in E:/Apps, you are ready to actually use what you want.
1. Reboot your xbox
2. Go to Applications and select EEE Installer / Uninstaller
3. Go down one and select Install SCEEE.
4. Now you must figure out if your Xbox's region. You can go to THE XBOX-SCENE VERSIONS PAGE
and enter the serial # of your xbox to see where it was made. Basically, if you bought it in the U.S.A. , it is NTSC. If you bought it in Europe, it's PAL. (Please correct me if I'm wrong)
5. It will then ask you if you read the readme. Just hit yes.
