Wondering if someone can pass some advice. I have an 8 gig xbox that I got off ebay, came with XBMC as its dashboard and some emulators on. I want to upgrade the HD to a 40 gig one I have here spare (as a trial run for doing it to a bigger one) and I've spent hours on the bloody thing.. Nearly no joy
Most recently, tried the CHIMP method, but CHIMP won't load because I'm using XBMC as a dash apparently, and I'm reluctant to change it in case I screw the only working hd/dash I have, so forgetting chimp for now
Going the FTP route, I've FTPed the entire C and E off the xbox (F is empty) and into an unpacked XBOXHDM folder on the laptop together with running ConfigMagic to get the eeprom; got all that stuff in the right places in the xboxhdm linux folder, made the ISO, burned it.. Looked in the iso with winrar and yep, the files I copied off the xbox are there
So I boot xboxhdm on the main PC, format my new drive, tell it to copy everything.. Come the locking part I could not get lockhd to find the eeprom file. Browsing round the linux file sys I couldnt find it either. I've rebooted xboxhdm many times in various options and browsed around the file syste, and only one time I booted it I think I found it in /CD/eeprom/EEPROM.bin (case sens issue?) but it seems now every time I boot XBOXHDM option 3 i do not get a /CD/ folder mounted so I dunno wth is going on there. I booted windows with the new xbox drive as primary slave instead and used LIVEINFO to calculate the password for the HD, back into XBOXHDM and typed the password in using lockhd -p <password> and it locked ok...
Put the new drive in the XBOX, booted it and up comes.. the original MS Xbox dash.
What the? How did that happen? I thought the new drive would be a clone of the old one.. the only thing I didnt copy onto the XBOXHDM iso was the Emulators folder cos it wont fit on a cd
I got winrar to generate a report of the files inside the ISO. It can be seen at http://rghost.net/19221221 just incase someone can look at say "oh, your C folder has an xboxdash.xbe which is the original dash, you copied the wrong files off the xbox, you fool"
Is there a way I can use xbox hdm to mount my new 40gig drive and edit the files on it so that some dash other than the MS one can be inserted? I dont have any games to softmod the new HD
Thanks in advance
