    Default XB1 Softmod Or Softmod And Flash Tsop Tutorial

    UDPATED 2/26/07

    What I did to sofmod an Xbox:
    I also chose to Flash the onboard TSOP

    #1 - USE AT YOUR OWN RISK

    A failed softmod that results in an ERROR code 5, 6, 13, 16, or 21 on boot, will
    usually mean you need to CHIP the box.

    http://home.comcast.net/~admiral_pow...ce_errors.html

    Any hardware errors are coincidental, unless you opened it up and forgot
    to put something back. A softmod will not cause a hardware arror or
    failure.

    TURN OFF the auto sign-in to Xbox Live!

    UNPLUG the Network Cable from the Xbox if you are on an active Internet
    connection. Do not plug it back in till the softmod is working.

    You need an Action Replay game save system, or other way to get game
    saves to the Xbox, from your PC.

    Check the MSDASH version, it must be 5960 or better. You can check
    this in xbox in the settings, system information. The install package WILL
    NOT have the MSDASH on it, it would ever fit on a MEM pak.

    DO NOT Unlock the HDD when the softmod is installed, you will have to
    chip it. This is what causes Error 5.

    My Method:
    1. AR System & software (Xbox to USB adapter for Xbox Memory Paks)
    2. Splinter Cell Game (Not a Platinum hit - to be safe).
    3. [LINUX] Game Save Profile.
    4. SID 4 Installer

    You can download the software from www.codejunkies.com - which has
    the Xfer program and drivers for the Adapter.

    Both the LINUX and SID-4 fit on one 8MB pak. If they do not, then
    something is wrong with the SID 4 package (too big - and may not be what
    you want to use).

    I was able to aquire BOTH the SID 4, and Linux profile from the AR Community
    saves, using their program that allows you to Drag-n-Drop from them to your
    PC or MEM PAK. You can go down to SPLINTER CELL, and there may be
    a "Install LINUX" profile, use that. Look around for the SID 4 installer. IF
    you cannot get it there, you have to LOOK for it elsewhere, I cannot point
    you to it. The only reason I tell you that AR may have it, is because, well
    they are a LEGAL service, and some people just put ILLEGAL stuff on it.

    Once you have everything:
    1. Boot Xbox.
    2. Remove, or backup & remove all other splinter cell game saves.
    3. Xfer SID 4 & Game Save to Xbox (they go where they need to).
    4. Boot Splinter Cell.
    5. Choose LINUX profile.
    6. Press "A" at choose a level (nothing is displayed anyway)
    7. SID 4 MENU SHOULD POP UP.

    If SID 4 does not come up, then; you do not have a valid LINUX profile or
    SID 4 installer.

    I was able to do this WITHOUT reading the README. TXT as the menu
    is pretty self explanitory. BACKUP everything first! SID 4 should not allow
    you to install the softmod without the BACKUPS. This was how EASY it
    was for me, it may not be for you.

    Do NOT ever power off the system unless it tells you to. There may be a
    point where it LOOKS as though it has locked up, it did not. If the SID 4
    would happen to lock up, then you have a problem with your Xbox.

    READ the instructions for the SID 4 installer package. The game save is
    stored as a ZIP file under the install drive\Program Files\Datel\Saves.
    There is a readme.txt in there. Do NOT add anything to the ZIP file, the
    game save will become INVALID, it did for me.

    There are three install options for the softmod, which includes two
    dual boot options. With the dual boot option; powering on with the
    eject button boots back to the SID 4 MENU or other to M$ Dashboard.
    With the dual boot options; PxHDD Loader says the Eject Trick hack is
    not detected, and will not work. You must use DVD2XBOX if you
    are going to put games on the HDD.

    Once you are all done, the Xbox will boot to EvoX and the eject light will
    be RED. RED indicates Softmod is on, GREEN is softmod OFF. You can
    boot with an ORIGINAL game disc in, to bypass softmod for live play.


    IF FLASHING TSOP:
    EvoX is booted from E Drive. If you want to FLASH your TSOP, make sure
    it is write enabled. Make a DIR in E Drive "Bios" then transfer the BIOS you want
    to use into that DIR. Use EvoX to FLASH BIOS (system menu).

    IF you have a specific Winbond chip, you need Raincoat to flash it, if
    EvoX hangs on the ERASE stage (mine did). Eurasia has the V1.3 Bios
    Flash Disc kit, use it, and follow the instructions. That is what I had to do
    to flash the Winbond chip in my V1.3 as EvoX hung at ERASING.

    That's the exact setup I used, but the power light stays green, whether it's running in Evolution X or the Microsoft dash.
    One thing, you mentioned not unlocking the hard drive after soft modding. I did the mod before I got around to getting a new hard drive for my x-box. Are you saying I need to start from scratch if I want to replace the drive?

    You need XboxHDM V1.9 to make a larger replacement drive with a Softmod. Softmods work completely different than a chip, so you can't just replace the drive with a SOFTMOD. The HDD must always remain LOCKED for a softmod. If you unlock it, and did not write down the keys, or transfer the BACKUP of the EEPROM to the PC, then you would need to install a chip to recover. If you put the EEPROM data to the PC, then you can lock it manually with XboxHDM.

    ALso, yes, if you replace the drive, even with a CHIP mod, you need to start it ALL over again, unless you want to use XboxHDM to clone it, and that takes HOURS and HOURS! I keep a folder on my PC, an image of each modded xbox I have, plus my brothers, so if anything happens, I can restore them in a minutes with a new drive. It will not contain anything HE loaded as far as games go, but will put it back as it was when he got it. Mine I update every time I update any the Xbox software. I put it in the folder first, then FTP it to Xbox...

    Hmm, dammit, when my PC blew last December, I may have lost my backup, I'll have to dig through the recovered folders I have to find it. I also should have the backup somewhere on my x-box, I hope.

    First rule when SOFTMODDING an Xbox, you never, EVER, unlock the HDD. The original bios still loads first, then the softmod once the exploit takes over.

    You should have FTPed the contents of your Xbox HDD to your PC after the softmod, then you would have the EEPROM data to have the HDD locked with its password on the PC.

    You will have to install a CHIP now, to recover, sorry... Without the KEY, you can't lock the drive.
