This 1.6 was a working soft mod using Rocky 5 Emustation. I was up late one night transferring some fileswhen I obviously should’ve just gone to bed. Long story short, I seem to have deleted some dash files or something. I triggered an error 12 to unlock the drive and have it successfully open with Explorer360. Need some insight on where to go from here.
Im looking for some ideas to try before I look for a replacement xbox. Im not sure if i can do anything else at this point.
My xbox was soft modded for some time, but I wanted to do a tsop to unlock the drive and then put in a 2.5 inch 500 gb sata drive. I did the tsop (i have a v1.5) soldered the 2 point and flashed the tsop with hexen 2021 disc. Put in my sata driver with adpater and 80 pin cable and everything was great. I started uploaded the library that i have. I also removed the supercap.
I was down to my really scrached discs and was trying to see i could get good copies from them, but gave up. I picked up some new titles and went to install them and the xbox wouldnt boot. I get the evo/xbox splash screen to a blank screen with the orange led. Tried booting hexen or soft mod or game disc and nothing.
I tried cleaning out the dvd drive, that didnt help. The last thing i did with the drive was watch it with the cover off. It doesnt appear to be trying to focus nor does it appear to be emitting a laser. It does move the laser head unit on the rails. But i dont think this should stop a boot to harddrive?
I went back to the ide drive and the 40 pin cable and no change. I tried combinations of hooking up pc cdrom to the ide and dvd on the power. Thought maybe the dvd drive was corrupting the ide bus.
Ive checked my caps and board multiple times. The only thing i was suspicious of was a pin point spot on the nvidia chip, i hope it didnt melt itself inside.
So thats where im at, i think my dvd is toast and maybe the ide on the motherboard is broken.
I Bought 3 xboxes.
Softmodded them ALL to rocky5 emustation and Nulled the Harddrives.
1.I took 1 xbox to first upgrade to 500gb HDD and then I installed LOTS of Games and emulators.
2.I unlocked the 500gb HDD using Chimp
3.I used HDD Raw copy tool and made an uncompressed Raw file.
4.I took all 3 HDD's (all lockable WD BLUE) and cloned them using Raw Copy Tool.
5. Installed a cloned HDD into the First xbox and everything went fine.
6. I took Xbox 2 and Used Chimp to Lock HDD 2
7. I started Xbox 2, with 500gb Cloned HDD (on Master ofcourse), splash screen is slow and emustation won't load.
What I tried:
1. Using different Sata adapters
2.Using different 40 and 80 wired cables
3.Getting the same partitions as the original HDD
So... Im having Nulled Hdd's and im loading the EEPROM from the Motherboard of Each softmodded xbox.
I was kind of surprised that this does not work, does anyone can help me (in the right direction)?😀
