hi, i've been trying to softmod my xbox with varying degrees of success and failure for a little bit now. it always seems that things work at first, and then stop working.
the first and so far only reliable thing i have gotten to work is xbox-linux's mech installer.
for unknown reasons, i am unable now to get any of the 007 or MA saves to work (error 21 always), so i am now reluctant to remove the xbox linux installation (well, the boot loader on C using the font exploit) to try to get a font exploit to work.
i have thus been trying the logical other choice, the audio hack. i have tried several packages and the original exploit, and none of them work. they dont give me error 21, which is good, but they crash the xbox and reload the dash.
is it my xbox doing something way messed up, or is it a technical limitation of running the audio exploit from a font- and xip-hacked dash?
any help regarding getting the gamesaves to work would be nice as well. i can post more details about what exactly ive done if needbe.
oh, v1.0, 4043 kernel 4029 dash.

in other news, the virtual disk file of xebian got corrupted, and now my xbox wont boot my xebian cdrw.. i have it backed up, but that means another hotswap, which will wait for tommorrow. in the mean time, any other advice is much appreciated.

emok1d, it is possible to run both exploits as I was running both (before TSOP flash)...here is how I had my evox.ini to switch between the 2...this might help ya...
Info "Deactivate fonts"
Warning "This will turn off the font exploit and activate the audio exploit"
Progress "Turning off font exploit..."
rename "c:fontsBert.xtf" "c:fontsBert.bak"
rename "c:fontsErnie.xtf" "c:fontsErnie.bak"

yep exactly, and to really make the swapless db foolproof, check out morden post with the sticky about fixing the corruption problems.....all in all I finally did switch and flashed the tsop, definitely look at TSOP flashing, its fast, easy, and requires no solder, just some conductive ink or paint
