    Hey Everyone,

    I tried updating to the latest dash using this method (http://www.realmodscene.com/index.php?/topic/2205-xebuild-freeboot-nand-update-tutorial/) on my jTag and my RGH (Slim 4G Model). It has worked perfectly fine before on both these consoles. I tried my jTag first and it worked flawlessly.

    I then tried the slim and it failed miserably (unfortunately). Unfortunately when I went to screen capture I close the cmd prompt so do not have the error but from memory:

    1. I was on DashLaunch 3.16 and update serv was enabled
    2. It found my console on the correct IP Address for the xbox beacon
    3. It failed to send flash data to console successfully
    4. Loaded Avatar Data Successfully
    5. Formatting HDD failed
    6. Then there was a warning line that told me not to try an update this console again until the issue was found and resolved

    The only other things I can add are: I accidentally left my USB HDD in while doing this update - does that matter?

    I can get into Xell and I I just found the update log file from the attempted update but did not want to post it all as it has CPU Keys etc and not sure if it should be posted with all that data. Part of the log file is:

    Warning: Spoilers inside!

    I can still load Xell but I do not have my original NAND on hand. Someone else completed the RGH so I am trying to get the NAND off of them

    Is there anything else that I can do from here due to the console now turning on and stating E 79

    Thanks in advance

    Zephyr

    P.s. It does have a 250Gb HDD added as extra storage to the 4Gb it came with - but removing that and placing it back in did not help anything - Still e79 (I assume I will need my original NAND and flash the firmware and update via Xell...?)

    Other then rebuilding the NAND using Jrunner via this tutorial.
    Nope, be patient and wait for your NAND to arrive.

    Many thanks for the response. I will be very patient and await the NAND to arrive. They said if they still have the NAND they will do the build I need and explain how to install

    If the NAND is not given / found then I will look at the tutorial you supplied

    I have no idea what went wrong - but I guess thems are the breaks. At least I still have a working jTag

    It would be typical I have my jTag NAND but not the RGH Xbox NAND :(

    P.s. Swizzy from RealModScene stated I can get my NAND via XeLL - any chance you or anyone knows how (Currently using google to find out too)

    UPDATE: Got NAND via XeLL. Plugged Xbox into Router and it gets an IP Address. Use that IP Address from a WebBrowser and you can get you NAND and FUSES info + CPU Key. Rebuild NAND and place on root of USB FAT32 and then turn on XBOX. It flashes the NAND and away you go.

    Then I successfully completed the upgrade to the latest dash but ensured I was on the LAN via Ethernet rather than Wifi and it ran smooth and fast

    Glad it got fixed out.
    Copy the working hacked NAND to a USB from yer 360 and back it up somewhere on yer PC, along with the CPUkey.
    Don't lose them, their extremely important.

    I have my CPU Key and I have the backed up RAW NAND that I just grabbed from the Console last night. Both are backed up along with the fuses etc.

    I normally have my backups but when I got this console hacked I never grabebd them (silly me). Two Valuable lessons learned. 1. Always have a backed up NAND and 2. If you are going to do an update via xebild on your home network ensure you use an ETHERNET cable instead of wifi :)

    Thanks again for your posts. It is all a learning curve and valuable knowledge

    You're able to boot into XeLL?
    If yes, you can flash a rebuild NAND (rehacked whatever) you made with JRunner with rawflash.
    If you're unable to do so, then the only thing left is to flash it with a hardware flasher.
    Either JRunner programmer or NAND-X or that maximus thing.

    Good luck with it.
    I personally prefer NAND-X or JRunner tho.
