Hi. I couldnt find a similar post (others are softmod related or outdated).
So i got an xbox which i found out had meen hardmodded earlier (chip removed).
I have gotten it to a state that when i boot it up i get error 21 (from no error before desoldering to e16 before rebuilding C to e21)
I have hotswapped and gained the eeprom.bin from backup and i have found out that it had evolutionx dash installed.
Is there any way to get past this error via rebuilding hdd or something (i dont know what chip it had because i had this from random guy)
xbox version is 1.4/1.5 (focus chip + 2 lines of psu pins) and i have a working xbox crystal v1.6 with softmod (sid4 + unleashX)
What the xbox does when booting :
boots up and display's microsoft (it didnt display it before the rebuild of C)
displays error 21 and at the same time the dvd drive is doing random noise, like screetch 3 times, then waits for a moment, and then does it again (i think for eternity before i power it off) + tried my crystal dvd which resulted in same error.
What i have tried :
-Tested the hdd for baddies with seagate seatools (totally working hdd)
-rebuild C partition with linux.iso
-Build xbox hdd from scratch using files from AID2
What i am going to try :
-Build xbox hdd from scratch using files from my working softmodded xbox
-install aladdin xt modchip when it arrives
The xbox mobo seems to be fine (after i did some desoldering, it still has the spikeline [whatever it is in eng] from the modchip soldered) so i think its related to the xbe files which i cannot make it boot, even ive checked the proper installation via xplorer360.
any help would be apreciated. and sorry for typo's, not the best in eng.
