Heimdall woah there less of the attitude hey?
Bit of maturity in your posts can go a long way.
Wrong. You have to turn off virtual eeprom first.If you don't, then you simply end up changing the virtual eeprom, not the real one, and at next reboot your softmod reads the unchanged real eeprom and you are back where you started. Your error 21 problem was nothing to do with virtual eeprom being off or on.
Hang on a second your instructions arent using the the enigmah video switch DISK and your method was different. I have done this 3 times now, so I will have to say you either didnt read what I wrote properly or you dont know what you are talking about.
Wrong again. You turn virtual eeprom on or off by making sure that there isn't an eeprom.bin file on C:\ then by putting eeprom_off.bin in E:\NKP11\, or by booting with Frosty's rescue disc. Disable/Enable Ndure can leave your Xbox effectively unmodded!!
1) No not wrong... if my settings have stuck which THEY HAVE this is obviously <b>another</b> way to turn off the virtual eeprom(although riskier than yours... which doesnt seem to make sense, why would putting a file into "E:\NKP11\" affect the virtual eeprom? unless you meant to say place it where the virtual eeprom.bin was? Poor job of explaining it if thats the case, where did you get the "eeprom_off.bin"?).
2) Yes it can leave it un-modded which is why I got the error21 hence my warnings. To do it this way you MUST use the switch disk first, thats got NTSC sorted for you correct? Take the disk out, boot up "e:\ndts\default.xbe" which doesnt disable the eeprom on its own(didnt for me, which is why I tried the disable endure option in the first place) from then on you just load up XBMC and make all your changes there, go back and enable Ndure and your settings are saved(thats NTSC and your HD modes).
And wrong again. The changes stick in XBMC only AFTER you've enabled the modes in the eeprom by turning off virtual eeprom and enabling the HD modes in the real eeprom.
Erm... reading comprehension? You enable the HD modes in a completely different menu to the screen resolution you choose for XBMC, this was explained, that part is THE reason to disable the virtual eeprom along with the NTSC mode if you have a PAL Xbox. The Appearance/Screen resolution settings arent a system level setting(the enabling of the HD modes is), they are a preference specific to XBMC probably saved in the config file, its not like every program/dashboard you have is going to save that preference in the eeprom is it?
I strongly advise you think before you hastily knock out such a condescending, ignorrant post like that again.This post has been edited by Rocker1: Nov 21 2008, 03:43 AM
