Recovering dumped EEPROM.bin from HDD with corrupted dash.

Hello OG Xbox forums, I've worked myself into a pickle again.

The short version:

I need to get a file off of an HDD that throws an error 16 (won't boot, Corrupted dash) but still works. Can I get it off using a second Xbox and a file manager, or do I need to buy an adapter and use Xpolorer 360 to get it off?

 

The long Version: 

While preparing to TSOP flash my Xbox, I was copying saves over from the had drive onto a memory card for safe keeping. However when that didn't work with the UnleashX dash I tried to switch over to the default dash. This corrupted the files and now the Xbox throws an error 16 whenever it tries to boot from the HDD. Since it is an error 16 I can't boot from disc since the Xbox preforms the time check before it checks the DVD drive, and since the Xbox was only softmoded I can't just format a new drive and throw it in. From what I've found online I can use CHIMP and my working TSOP'd Xbox to recover the dash files on this second one, however I need the EEPROM.bin file. Can I get it off using a file manager that can detect both drives using the working TSOP'd Xbox, can CHIMP find the EPROM.bin file on the slave HDD and recover from that, or do I need to purchase an IDE adapter to connect my Drive to a PC via XPLORER 360 and then transfer it over to the XBOX?  

Thanks.

If the drive that is giving error 16 is locked then without the key the drive can not be read,

You could read the EEprom contents in the error 16 Xbox with a external EEprom read/writer and get the HDD key that way. But in my experience the version 1.6 is a pain in the backside to read the EEprom without removing the chip and connecting it to a external reader/writer.

 

I would fit a modchip even if it is temporary to the error 16 Xbox then you can load a Installation DVD  to repair the HDD

 

This is one of the reasons I don't softmod and I have repaired plenty of soft modded Xbox's because files have been deleted and after they leave here it has a modchip or a re-flashed TSOP.

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

      Hello
      So I have a Chip called a jafar, Its an upgraded Aladdin XT with Xblast. 1 Bank of 512, 1 256 and the last 256 is reserved for the Xblast which always boots first.
      My Question is how do I get Dual Dashboards with this? I have UnleashedX as I've always liked it but want to give XBMC a try
       
      Ideally I'm looking to have say Unleashed X boot with the 512mb X2 5035.137 bios and XBMC Boot with the evox.m8plus bios or visa versa
      After extensive searching online I am none the wiser, Could someone point me in the right direction to get started?

      Didn't think I should try to take over another user's post, but it looks to have gone cold. I am having this same issue in 720p & 1080p. The middle orb looks ovular instead of a circle. This happens with any skin that has an orb. It looks less distorted in 720p. Like it gets less squished the lower I set the resolution, until I get to 480p and its normal. I have tried Widescreen and Normal, with no change. I can make it look better if I scale the top and bottom in (closer to the middle of the TV screen). But that is not ideal obviously. I attached screenshots (left stick click + Black). The issue persists from the TV display across to the screenshots. Also, I had this issue since the fresh Softmod of the console after I set my resolution to anything higher than 480p. But before I started configuring anything else. Any help would be very much appreciated.

      I think this belongs here? Since I'm just trying to install XBMC4Gamers. But like the title says, Xbox Softmodding Tool Extras Disc will not boot when I try to boot it from the "Applications" section. I've followed the instructions on how to set up the files correctly, but when I click on XSTED, the screen goes black for a few seconds then it goes right back to the UnleashX dashboard. I thought maybe it's mounting it to the disk drive virtually? But even my disk drive won't boot a disk when there's a disk in it using the "Run CD in drive" button, no matter what's in the drive.

      I'm kinda at a loss, so I'm coming here for some help. Attached is how I have it setup on the drive.

      1.4 that's been TSOP'd, if it matters
