Black Screen When Installing Rocky5's Softmod

Recommended Posts

Hello guys,

 

We just bought an old Xbox and when trying to install Rocky5 on it using Splinter Cell, we only get a black screen when loading the save.

 

The front LED turned to red and nothing. The TV still says it has a 50Hz signal coming.

 

The saves we used previously modded another Xbox successfully, is there something we're missing? Like a hardware revision limitation or rewriting the saves ?

 

Thanks in advance bros.

After copying the two save files, the Splinter Cell checkpoint game save (5553000c) and the softmod installer save (21585554), to the HDD, reboot/power cycle the console before running the game and loading the game save that starts the softmod installer.

Have you had any succes with this? Used the techniques described above on an XBox this morning and it went fine, but running it on another one now, even with the troubleshooting steps mentioned above, I'm still getting just a black screen, red light and nothing else.

Hey hi, i just softmodded my xbox and had the same black screen issue. The solution for me was:  After rebooting into the dashboard, go under video settings and change mode from 16:9 wide screen to normal.

Hope it might still help someone out there ;)

      Hello,
      I recently got two broken Xboxes and was able to build a working console from both.
      The Xbox has a softmod and I'm thinking about flashing the bios. How do I do that best?
      It is a XBOX version 1.4 (Winbond) and I would like to transfer everything via FTP, because I don't have a DVD burner. 
      I have read something about HeXEn and Tsop but I am now rather confused.
      Can I also bottle the Bios over FTP, if so how? 
      Do I have to remove the softmod and is it still possible via FTP after flashing?
      Thanks in advance.

      Hello, I've just joined this forum as i have just softmoded(Rocky5 with XBMC-Emustation) my ogxbox.. But I am running into an issue when I try to launch the emulator.. The screen is just black. But I am able to hit B to close it again. So it seems it's running? But not able to show me anything on screen?
       
      Also currently downloading DoomX homebrew, to see if that launches..
       
      Regards Naits.
