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.

      Selling this beauty. Only 4 consoles were ever made. I’m looking for offers really. Anything over 1000£ + would be considered. Will ship anywhere in the world, But you pay for that cost. Is usualy 69 £ tracked. Have a great one!

      Hi guys,
       
       So I was given an Xbox 1.0 from a friend that is chipped and has a 120gb HDD. Unfotunately the chip does not have support for HDD larger than 120gb and I am unable to flash the chip's BIOS (evox says it is not flash writeable).
       I'm basically in a bind to find a guide on how to softmod this box and tsop it from a modchip because I don't know what type of chip it is and how to disable it. Pictures below: 
      Apologies for the very dusty MB, lol! As always any guidance will be highly appreciated.
