So a year ago I bought a softmodded box and it worked fine until this yr. Now after it finishes booting the phoenix bios, the screen goes black and won't boot into unleashX. I have alot of data files I don't want to lose on my xbox so I can't afford a reformat. Here's some steps I'm considering taking:
1) Using a gamesave exploit (007 AUF) to gain ftp access using some disc like ultimate cd
(Here i'm not sure if running a cd like ultimate cd or slayers is the correct thing to do, i'm not sure if it'll reformat my drive automatically without even backing up my eeprom,hdkey and other important files.)
Now, is there a danger to installing another dash like Evox while it's possible that UnleashX is still present in my system? BTW, I have different partitions on my HD, will these show up if I install another dash?
I would like to try Krazie's UXE installer but i'm not sure how to do this without installing another dash like evox and not sure if then it'd give me trouble.
So the ftp access i'd be gaining would be because of Evox? Without Evox I can't gain ftp access another way? I understand the gamesave exploit will allow me to run cd to install Evox.
So what's the best approach to this?
My HD is unlocked btw (160gig)
