ok i was making a super slim box, i had everything finished, even installed my new brand new 200gb drive. well i was just going to test the temperature and when i turned on the xbox everthing seemed great, fans working and everything. but what i didnt notice is that one part of the power supply was touching the heatsink (the big one) so it made it sooo hot that the chip under the heatsink just popped
so did the part from the power supply but i fixed that already. so i tried connecting the xbox back again and it turns on but it frags. (turns off two times and then it just flashes red, green). since the hdd was locked and i forgot to back up the eeprom in my pc (just got it on the locked hdd
) is there a way to unlock it? i read the tutorial on switching the eeprom chip but i was just wondering if there was another option before i try to doing that.. thanx in advance
ps. i remember reading somewhere that if you leave your hdd just there till it stops spinning and then disconnect it it would be unlocked or something like that...but would that work with my situation? if so whats the exact procedure?
