Possible Broken Softmod

Recommended Posts

So last night I tried to install JCrockys softmod using Splinter Cell but I think I installed it over the top of my current softmod... So originally I softmodded my xbox with JCrockys softmod but I upgraded my HDD... I used heXEn 2018 disc to format and install my new drive which all worked but I wanted to put JCrockys back on because he seems to be keeping all his stuff up to date and when I did the dashboard was failing to load and I could only boot from a disc.

Is there a way I can wipe and clean install JCrockys sofmod, if so, how? And will I need to copy over some things to my computer before I continue?

FYI its a 1.4 Halo Special Edition Xbox which has been TSOP flashed with EvoX M8+ Custom Bios. I'm completely new to Xbox modding and I don't completely understand the foundations on how all this stuff works yet so I apologize if this is a very easy fix

If the Xbox was TSOP flashed, that means it's already hardmodded, which is better than a softmod. There's no reason to install a softmod and doing so will cause a conflict with the BIOS of the hardmod, which prevents a dashboard from booting. Just clean the C partition to get rid of the softmod, but make sure you have a working dashboard path for your hardmod to boot with (probably C:\evoxdash.xbe).

EDIT: Oh. I didn't notice this was already answered in the other thread.

Yeah for some reason it double posted from my phone... I spoke to an admin to try and remove one of them.

If I completely clean the C will I be able to use JCrockys boot disc to install his dashboard?

      Hello!
      My setup
      I have been running XBMC-Emustation dash on my V1.6 Xbox with a WD2500JB IDE drive ... the system was soft modded using Xbox-Softmodding-Tool.  Both tools created by @Rocky5
      Please login or register to see this link.
      I want to update my storage and have both a 2TB WD20EARS and a 3TB WD30EFRX.  I purchased the following ribbon and PATA>SATA off Amazon:

      (I bought two of each; I upgraded my brother's OG Xbox as well using a 1TB WD Blue drive... don't have the exact model in front of me ... but the ribbon and PATA>SATA worked amazing.)
      The Issue
      After loading the initial Xbox green splash screen, I am not booted into the Dashboard.  Instead, the screen goes black and it just hangs.  I've found I can open/close the DVD tray and THEN it will boot the dashboard.
      I've also noticed the speed is slower in both the initial splash screen and the loading of the dashboard itself (after I manually open/close the DVD tray to get the dashboard to load).  Again, tested with both the 2TB and 3TB drives
      Things I've Tried
      Re-softmodding the system
      Both 2TB and 3TB drives
      Different default Dashboard (UnleashX)
      Additional StarTech adaptor
      Additional 80 pin IDE cable
       
      ... Anyone's input would be appreciated!

      I'm attempting to help someone with their original Xbox that refuses to boot. His family pulled it from storage around Thanksgiving and it powered on but gave error message. Initially I recommend just finding another working unit but this one holds special sentimental value. Turns out belonged to his oldest son who passed away from a brain tumor at 14. Got this as a part of his Make a Wish gift at 12 and played it constantly. So I've done softmod on Xbox, Wiis, and PS3 but never tried a modchip but was thinking that it might be a way to get this thing back up and running. Can this be done or any other ideas? I tore the system down, pulled the leaky clock capacitor, cleaned the board, checked all connections and reassembled but no go. Could use any help with this. Thanks!

      I've recently transplanted my failing and old IDE hard drive to a 2tb expansion with new ribbon cable.  Also updated Unleash X to latest build.
      After I finished this I started to play games like Fight Night Round 3 where you cycle through different character bulids and such.. when customizing it looks like my drive is freezing up.  I've also noticed that when trying to play emulation front ends like coinops 8 the loading of some of the larger games like Killer Instinct freeze the system as well.  
      Could the corruption of the old drive follow to the new drive?  When I did the system transfer the only items I transferred were the eeprom partitions and saves. I was thinking maybe nulling the drive and then reformatting the other partitions might work?  But wanted to see if there are any other suggestions.  
      I've also attempted to launch these in xbmc4gamers but this also causes freezing.  Not sure if that should be a separate topic or not.
