My mate brought a brand new xbox 1.6 and tried to softmod it but didn’t work and now when we boot up it frags and says error 16 which I know is cos of the evox dash is there a way we can restore it we have a broken 1 with evox on the dash can I unlock the harddrive and do a swap….
I tries unlocking the harddrive and swapping it but still didnt work¬

Not unless u have the eeprom.bin from that xbox, if so, u can make a xboxhdm and fix the hdd in ur pc...if not, u will need to install a modchip to fix this.

What about if i changed the harddrive put a 40gig in will i be abel to get round it like that ?

No. Read about Error 16
, and you'll find you need a fully working MS Dash to fix your problem.

To be able to use that 40GB hdd u will need to build it and lock it in ur pc, and to do that, u need and xboxhdm with the eeprom.bin from that xbox on it...otherwise, u need a modchip.

Even a modchip won't necesarily get your past a clock error. You need a good, locked HDD with a working MS Dash on it, and most likel a swap at the end of the day...
2. This is the more easy and newbie friendly strategy
-Get a friend with a modded xbox.
-Unlock his hdd with eeprom management from a slayer evo-x cd.
-Than, place his hdd in your xbox.
-Boot with your chip on.
-Now the xbox DOES find a dashboard when you boot in original mode and you can set the time in the msdashboard clock settings.
-Shut off xbox and remove your friends hdd
-PLace his hdd back in his xbox and lock it again
-Install your hdd
-(clock has been set) So boot up with slayer cd.
-Install normally whatever you wanna install

Sure it will, install the mod, boot slayers, ftp in and repair the hdd or just rebuild it with slayers...
Although ur right, if he's in a clock loop then he wouldn't be able to launch slayers...in that case he would need a whole new hdd, and modchip and slayers.
