OK. So I'm one of the many that has Error 21 problems. I know exactly what cause it, and I know what I would like to do to reverse it.
I have EvoX as my dash on my softmodded xbox. I had upgraded the harddrive about a year ago. Since then the "Microsoft Dashboard" option has tempted me. I remember before I upgrade my dash that I had clicked on it and had to re do the Splinter Cell exploit to be able to access EvoX again.
I now live about 3000 miles from that copy of Splinter Cell and Action Pro Replay. Messing around in the FTP I took the " xboxdash.xbe " from /backup/MS/ and replace C:/xboxdash.xbe . I click on Microsoft Dashboard in EvoX and the screen froze. Oh well that's happened every other time. turned out the xbox and turned it back on.
To get the Error 21 one screen with listing several languages to call Technical Support. I've tried both Slayer 2.7 and AID 4.40 boot disc on DVD+R, DVD+RW, and CD-R to no avail. Xbox games do work. Different region Xbox games do not.
I have my eeprom.bin and the C:/xboxdash.xbe files. Is there some way using only this laptop and my fucked up xbox, I can gain access again and undo my stupid as hell decision?
