Softmod problem - after green xbox logo I have black screen


Recommended Posts

Hello, guys

Today I updated my softmoded Xbox with Rocky5 softmod and xbmx4gamers ...everything was ok, until I started to download artwork downloader which is over 600 mb and placed it in E:

In the same time I uploaded a game with size of 4gb by mistake in E: again instead of F:

So, now the xbox starts green animation and flashes like to start the dashboard, but continue on black screen.

My only suggestion is that I consumed the entire E: and on that drive  is the xbmc4gamers folder, too....I dont know, but if the dashboard need some space on start maybe that cause the black screen...any ideas to help???

Also, is it possible to connect the hdd to a pc and xplorer360 app to erace that game from E: and to make some space on that drive???

Any help is welcome!

Thank you in advance!!!

As the Xbox is soft modded the hard drive is locked and that makes it a pain in the rear end to connect to a PC especially if you don't have the HDD key.

Have you tried to FTP to the Xbox even with the black screen?

Also try loading a install DVD it may at least let you FTP to it

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

I dont have any install DVD, I believe you mean like those Hexen etc...tried to ftp on black screen, but not working.

At least I have the backups eeprom and hd key etc, so if you have any idea how to connect the hdd to a pc to take a look, or any idea how to reset the dashboard - I can try!

Thanks, Dave!

2 hdd related questions:

If I softmod another OG Xbox console and in xbmc4gamers there is option to change the hdd key, if I put there the hdd key I have for the problematic console - it will work on it or not? Basicaly I am asking the og xbox looks to see that key and will accept any hardisk? 

The second question is : What happens if the HDD remain locked - is it possible to be used on a PC for example or it is lock forever and unusable?

Thanks!

There is a way of changing the HDD key key and the common thing among soft modders was to null the key( make the key all 0's) by doing that you can swap the locked hard drive between any soft modded Xbox that has a nulled key. Look for Rocky5's extras disk

With the new version of Xbox live ( Insignia) the HDD key can not be all zero's so now they use all one's instead.

If the hard drive is locked it can only be used in the device it was locked too, but as long as you have the HDD key for that hard drive can be unlocked and reused in a PC or any thing else the uses a hard drive.

      Hello everyone, I have a little problem with a softmoded Xbox with an Ndure, XBMC4Gamers main dashboard, Unleash alternative dashboard and equipped with a 500 GB hard drive. The console has about 80 working games on F and G partitions. The problem is that some get corrupted when I try to put others on the hard drive. The home artwork disappears and sometimes I can no longer launch the game. I noticed that some files were getting corrupted. The copied games do not launch or I have an "unreadable disc" message ... I have tried various things but have not been able to resolve this issue. I forgot to say that I have about 30 GB left available on G ... I would like to point out that this problem is only present on the G partition, the one I mainly use in fact ... I even tried to copy games via DVD2XBOX but they are not copied correctly and will not launch, while the application does not report any copy error ... After having thought about it, I tell myself that what produces these "instabilities" or these bugs is the fact of having via the FTP recorded and then erased such or such game many times, which causes the hard drive to be completely fragmented. I understand that it is useless in principle to defragment the HDD but at some point it must be necessary ... No? Has anyone ever had this problem? What I plan to do is move all the functional content to an external HDD via FTP and then re-inject everything cleanly so that I can then have these remaining 30 GB on the G partition without any problem. Thank you for reading me, hoping that some will provide me with an explanation and possibly an alternative solution ...

      Hey all.  Sorry if this has been posted, but I searched and couldn't really find anything.  I have a 1.0 Xbox that was handed to me by a friend.  He said he couldn't remember much about it, but that him and his kid tried to mod it a long time ago, and now it isn't working.  Upon opening it, I found a pin header, no modchip, tsop points soldered, and the underside D0 pad ripped off.  When I try to start the xbox, it cycles power 3 times then frags out.  I'm assuming this is due mainly to the ripped D0 trace.  I've tried repairing the trace, and bridging the two pads connected by the green line, but I can't seem to get the solder to stick.  Is there any other way to repair this, or is this the only way?  Relatively new to xbox modding so any tips would be appreciated.  Thank you!

      Hi,
      I have a hard modded OpenXenium chip with a 1 TB WD Blue HDD.  I have everything set up and I am trying to get more than 200 GB - with more than  > 200 GB left on a partition.  Filezilla is not letting me do that.  I am just trying to transfer the titles.  They are all HDD ready for transfer but they do not go through at a certain point.  They  all become failed transfers.  The bios I am using is unleashed x from the OGXBOX installer.  It was not flashed by the program but was transferred by my network.  It is a CEE bios.   I switch dashboard sometimes.  The only one that I have on there that is not preinstalled is Emulation Station. I had used the DVDmulleter to get the bios necessary.  The HDD has been partitioned correctly having being split from F to G the remaining left.  I am fairly new to this and any advice to help would be beneficial.
