i am a bit embarrased to ask this actually, being as i have been visiting these forums for weeks now and have tried a few different exploits on my xbox. could someone please explain to me in extra extra lamens dumbass n00b terms what the 'eeprom' is. also, i accidently hit the backup eeprom thing on configmagic, and it has created three files on the root of my e drive. can i delete these safely?
Jul 6 2004, 03:21 PM
The eeprom is basically a chip where all kinds of specific info is stored like the xbox serial, the hd key, the region settings and such things. each xbox has it's own eeprom. I dunno what kind of backup configmagic makes bu't I'm sure you could delete them if you feel like that.

Yup, if you don't like having that backup on your box deleting is just fine. However, I would suggest you transfer it over to your PC for safe keeping. Could be useful in the future.

im using idots ude package and i think that creates a backup of pretty much everything (including c and eeprom) so i think i am covered. also, if using the ude, am i supposed to have any files on the root of my e drive, because i don't and i am a little bit worried incase i may have deleted something i wasn't supposed to.

yes..i was told..everything goes on E:\ if u got a large hdd F:\ and G:\
but u shouldnt put your Apps and Games on C:\ thats Vital
if u messup c:\ u bound to have problems..like if a xbe courupted becuss of default
Jul 6 2004, 05:35 PM
no, i think you misunderstood my post. are there supposed to be any files on the root of the E drive
Jul 6 2004, 05:43 PM
what kinda files..your dashboard..apps..games music and whatever else folders...if u followed the directions and never had all other exploits removed other than ude..how could u fail?
Jul 6 2004, 06:05 PM
for fuck sake, all i want to know is, are there any goddam important exploit or system files that are on the root of the fucking e drive.
Jul 6 2004, 06:15 PM
total ass please don't act like your nick. You were not clear at all to begin with. there are very important files/folders on E: and you shouldn't go around deleting them. I wouldn't know if ldots ude installer put any of the files on E: cuz that could be different than the regular way. Normally the triggered default.xbe is on the root of E a long with it's acompanied files.
Jul 6 2004, 06:30 PM
look, i apologise for my inappropriate language, but i did ask the same question twice 'are there any important files on the root of e' and i never got a proper response.
Jul 6 2004, 08:15 PM
Well you just did. I don't understand why you are deleting stuff anyway if you don't even know what that stuff means.

Thats fine then, I hope the answers we gave you help you out...

I'll just answer it directly:
According to the post for ldots' UDE package, no exploit files are stored on root E:\. Also, no (MS) system files are stored on root E:\, either.
E:\PBL\ - Phoenix BIOS Loader
E:\Dashboard\ - Dashboard files
E:\TDATA\ - User data (gamesaves)
E:\UDATA\ - User data (gamesaves)
If you already know you can boot fine, then there's no problem.

Edit: I wonder how its pronounced... I say EE-Prom

|Edit: I wonder how its pronounced... I say EE-Prom|
At work, we call it "E squared", because it has a double 'E'. That's because on the other hand, there's also EPROM (single 'E'), which can only be erased with UV light. You can also pronounce it "E-E-prom" or "double E-prom".
