Question About Backing Up My Og Hdd?

Recommended Posts

i've made a few posts in here about my og original xbox and how it has sentimental value to me. i know the hdd will eventually fail on it as all hdd's eventually do. i was thinking of using the softmod exploit just to enable ftp so that i can copy the entire hdd and the eeprom key to my pc. my question is, is there any possible danger in doing this? is it possible that the exploit can mess up my xbox? after i'm finished backing everything up, i want the xbox to be in the same condition it was before i did this. btw, it is a v1.6 and has no mod on it.

I have been able to able to read and write to a completely stock Xbox hard drive via FTP by only adding 1 game save and then launching the mechassault game and it is not modifying the contents of the hard drive, If you delete the game save it's the same as before you started 100% stock.

The other method would be fit a modchip to the Xbox the hard drive was in then you can unlock the hard drive and connect it to a computer and copy any and all of the drive using FATXplorer or save the entire drive as image file if you wanted.

The 2nd method is the easiest as the mechassault game that works with the xploit is hard to find. It needs to be the NON Live enabled version.

Soft modding is like masturbating, It gets the job done but it's nothing like the real thing.

      it's a v1.4 hard modded xbox. i had sonic heroes on pause for several hours while i watched tv and did other things(in other words, i was not watching the xbox screen to see if it shot an error code or something). i have the xbox sitting behind my tv so i don't see everything that it does. i looked behind the tv and a saw the the eject led had turned yellow. i shut the xbox off immediately because i feared it was overheating so i didn't look on the tv to see if it was displaying an error code. anyway, what causes the yellow led? btw, it was a solid yellow led, not flashing.

      I have done several sodtmods using the Rocky5 Method and this one baffles me. Everything installed perfect but backing up the EEPROM could not advance to the next screen. The key was nulled out, ETC.  I reran the back up program same thing stuck on the EEPROM back up screen. The board is 1.0 Rev k. Any clues on how to fix this?
