Ok, I'll try to keep this brief. I used xboxhdm to softmod my xbox with unleashedx through a hotswap. Everything seemed to work fine. I used config magic to pull the eeprom. Unleashedx worked fine, I was able to ftp with no issues. I used AID to install evox, and this is where my issues began. My stock dash would no longer boot, and when I tried to add other dashes i kept getting batch errors. I decided to return the hdd to normal again with xboxhdm and restart the process. I even generated the hdd unlock code prior to make sure my xboxhdm disk had the eeprom on it, and it worked fine. I used xboxhdm to build the drive from scratch. I put it back in the box. When I tried to start it up now there is no dash, it goes to error 21 immediately after the boot screen. Does anyone know why this might of happened, and what I could do to fix it? My ultimate goal was to put a 1.5tb hdd in this sucker and move my dvd collection to it so I don't have to worry about disks getting damaged. Now it seems I'm kind of stuck unless I wanna buy a chip and soldering gun. Can I restore the stock dash and softmod? Been messing with this for a few days and I'm not sure of my options. Any help is appreciated, I thank you in advance. edit : I will add to that once evox was installed I could no longer ftp as well, as I was gonna try to transfer the stock dash to it this way, but no luck. My pc would ping through the cable, receive a response, but when flash fxp tried to connect it had no luck.
