hey guys i was just wondering if i could use this guide http://hydras-world.com/index.php?page=xboxretailtodebug
and skip the mod chip install part(and just do it on a softmodded xbox instead)
and then do this
Extracting the required files from the XDKRecovery tool
Install WinRAR (I used v3.0) and start it up.
In WinRAR go to the location that you extracted the XBOX SDK to (i.e. the place that had xdksetup5558.exe in it) and double click (open) XDKRecovery5558.exe (yes, open, not run the .exe)
In it you'll find lots of files, most of which sit on the XBox.
Using WinRAR, extract all the files somewhere, e.g. d:\extractedxboxfiles, overwrite all files in destination folder (there are different versions of the same file in the XDKRecovery5558.exe file)
Installing XDK files to your XBox
Now we need add some files from the extracted XDK files to your current XBox backup folder (e.g. copy the following files from "d:\extractedxboxfiles" to "d:\My XBox")
Source (e.g. d:\extractedxboxfiles) Destination (e.g. d:\My XBox) Files to copy / Notes
\XDASH \C\ xshell.xbe only
\XDASH\data \C\data All files, recursive
\XDASH\images \C\images All files, recursive
\XDASH\media \C\media All files, recursive
\XDASH\sounds \C\sounds All files, recursive
\XDKSAMPLES \C\XDKSAMPLES All files, recursive
\XBOX \E\ dashboard.xbx and xbdm.dll
\DEVKIT \E\DEVKIT All files, recursive
\TDATA \E\TDATA All files, recursive
Now recursively upload all the files from your current XBox backup folder (d:\My XBox) to the XBox itself.
and instead of me using the xdk 5558 dash could i use 5849.6 because the 5849.6 has all of the stuff needed to be copied over to the xbox after exracted
i was wondering if i could do that... and it would work then...???
also when i launch the xdk dash, would it delete the xbmc dashboard i had and the other stuff on my hard drive or just leave it untouched...?
someone please help
