Thanks to this site I have been flashing dvd drives and fixing RROD erros for about a year now. Over 20 of each, so first I have to say thank you to everyone who contributes to the tutorials as well as answering questions on the forums.
Today I receive a working xbox 360 arcade with an older dash, didnt note exact version. Drive is benq e040
I flashed the drive to iextrem lt 1.1 the best for my benq
All goes well, the xbox boots to dash, then like a fool I put in and try to update with madden nfl 12
Now I receive the update error C000-0013, I tried holding in the sync button as I power on and nothing. (I have fixed this error before with a usb drive)
Then I tried a usb fat32 with the update file, I receive a different update error. C000-007B (xbox needs repair)
I tried the update file on a dvd and cd with the same error
I tried updating with the HDD pluged in
If I remove the dvd rom I receive a different update error C000-000e (xbox needs repair)
I tried flashing the dvd drive back to stock then all of the above with no luck
I tried flashing the dvd drive to pre dash update stock and post dash update stock only to receive the update error.
When attempting to update the xbox with stock firmware on the dvd drive I receive an update error that is not listed on microsoft support. c000-059
Am I screwed? What else can I try?
