Softmod XBOX unlocked hard drive error 5


Recommended Posts

Hi Guys;

I have picked up a faulty XBOX over the weekend which has an error 5 code. I removed the drive and connected to my PC with FatXplorer and I am able to view the contents of the drive. Which means obviously it is unlocked. Is there any way I can lock the hard drive and re-install it in the XBOX?

What options do I have?

If the Xbox was modded and it sounds like it must have been or how could it be unlocked you should check for a an E:\Backup folder to see if a copy of the eeprom is in there.

If not but the Xbox has exploit game saves still in UDATA check the installer: E:\UDATA\21585554\000000000000\ for a Backup folder. Its the default location for an eeprom backup save before/during/after install if another location was not specified.

Otherwise you likely going to have to go down the eeprom reader route and TBH that is as much hassle as fitting a cheap chip so the latter is probably the better solution to getting the Xbox booting again.
