Here's my situation and help would be nice because I want to get my Xbox up and running like it used to.
I tried to use the MechAssault (Linux) Gamesave Exploit and I messed up. I accidently deleted some files. I have no idea what I deleted.
Everytime I turn on my Xbox it goes straight to the Xbox needs service screen. What I have figured out is that I deleted some of my dashboard files. Before, I could play a game, but when I tried to get to the dashboard it crashed. Then, after I unplugged my Xbox the first thing it want's to do is look for the "clock". My Xbox looks for the "clock" before it even starts the disc and that's where it crashes.
I turn my Xbox on, it crashes because there is no "clock" set / dashboard there.
I can't FTP or do anything, but turn it on and off.
I have a credit card in my hand. I need to know if a ModChip will fix my problem. If I was to buy a ModChip (which I will), will it allow me to start the ModChip and totally skip the whole scanning for the "clock" / dashboard in general. I figured if it would automatically load the ModChip once installed I could then FTP to my Xbox and copy new drives from my brother's Xbox or the internet.
Now, if getting a ModChip will fix the problem which I hope it does. What ModChip should I buy? I was looking for something that's good, but not bad. Something that can fix my problem and do other stuff. Another thing, I want it to be a solderless setup even if I have to buy an adapter seperate. If I do have to buy an adapter seperate, I would like to know which one to buy as with the ModChip.
I was looking at buying a Xenium w/ Chameleon Solderless Adapter piece, but I am not sure if a ModChip will fix my problem let alone that ModChip.
Suggestions and comments are very much welcomed! If you know for 110% that a ModChip will fix my problem please post a link to where I can buy one from a trustworthy site so I can fix my Xbox.
