lol, sorry about that i did not clearify what i mean.
In the steps i would take:
i would most likely unlock the disc drive
connect it to an external bay since my board No longer support IDE/SCSI anymore
use xplorer360, extract data save under client 1
The run HDDregen
If that wont fix the issue:
I would then Restart
format the drive
use it as a HDD clock or for modification parts
sell my HDD to my friend and throw a college beer party while he plays on his xbox.
Btw i know HDDRegen does not format. lol
And the old version i have flags the bad sector, I guess i need to look for an updated version and download another .ISO
As for the mod chip :Doux 2 GS has an added option to turn off the mod chip either through an addition switch or if you prefer by turning on the system through the eject switch, the doux PCB has two addition area where to souder for the switch. Doux 2GS
As for what type of XCMB i will let my friend decide, he is to new to this and telling him on the phone what i need to do is getting him very confused lmao. So he is going to have a free day off come over and see for himself what i am talking about.
And he might want to lock the harddrive since he might not even use the modchip much.
Btw i found this on youtube also, i dont know if this is boogues or not, but an easy way to unlock a HDD and softmod. unlock and Softmod the easiest way
