If you formatted your HDD it wouldn't work at all so it has to be there

Do you have Halo by any chance as you can re install the xbox dash using that too. i think most Xbox live games do it anyway

Another option the one I would recommend is download Auto Installer Deluxe (google it) burn that to a disc and use that

yes I'VE GOT HALO , ive also got AID 4.3 burnt to a dvd...but when i put it in i get a flashing red light, ANY IDEAS?

YES BUT YOU don't need to keep SHOUTING

It sounds like you haven't modded the console properly, are you sure the splinter cell saves aren't still on your HDD?

You can't have formatted the WHOLE hard drive as you still need to have your eeprom on the HDD for it to work at all. You've clearly still got that so you haven't formatted it.

See if you can still FTP to it via Flashfxp

Ive got my xbox downstairs connected to router via ethernet cable, and my PC upstairs connected to the router via wireless....how do i go about FTP'ing.

If you don't know what it is don't worry

It's Halo 2 you need, do you have it?

Original Poster

Yep:)

XBOX Modding Support Centre : How may I help you?

Are you sure you ACTUALLY Formatted the HDD, very hard to do inside the dash..


How did you format the HDD? Tell us..

Original Poster

Thanks timothy...dono was on AID 4.3 and went to format retail HDD...dont think it was full format....i get error 14...

bilalbilal;3703832

Yep:)



Load up Halo 2 go onto live and you should be able to update your dash there, it will reset it back to the original MS dash

Timothyw9, how can i trust you? And what about the price of posting the DARNRIGHT HEAVY THING

Can't I just put the HD in my pc and somehow reinstall the dashboard

The moral of the story is although Xbox's are very easy to soft mod you shouldn't mess around with things you don't know as most of the time if you F it up you've bricked your Xbox.

You should always back up your eeprom but i'm guessing as you don't know what ftp'ing is you haven't done that

Out of interest can you link me to the guide you used

Plus - I'll need to buy the torx screwdrivers....boy oh boy...how i wish i never messed it up!!!
