E-XBLS Server Status: OFFLINE FAQ of E-XBLS + Instructions I never thought it would come to this, but it appears not everyone is as awesome as I. However, some of us seem to be having problems. In case you've been living under a rock, your modified xbox can now go online for free, pending on the server that is. First of all, this will not be about how to set it up, this is an FAQ topic. Q. - My Xbox loads up and sits on the boot screen.A. - This is either because the server is down, or the server is being overwhelmed with all the people. Q. - How do I get passed the boot screen when the server is down? A. - When you turn your console on, once you see the outer rings of the power button blink all at once, press the eject button. This will bypass your dashlaunch settings. Q. - What do I do with my KV.bin and CPUKey.bin? A. - You place these two files on the root of your hard drive. XBLS flashes the KV for you. Also please NOTE. You DONT need to put the KV.bin and CPUKey.bin on the root of your hard drive, when your R-Jtag/Jtag never before was online. If your console is/was Banned and you already Flashed your Console with the NEW KV, then you also dont need to put the KV.bin and the CPUKey.bin on the root of your harddrive!!! Q. - Is there any way to tell, without posting on the thread, if the server is up/down? A. - A the moment, there is no really accurate tool. There was one released couple days ago but nobody knows the authenticity of the program. Q. - What can I do to prevent my retail Xbox from getting banned as well? A. - While there is no sure-fire way of fully preventing the Xbox from getting banned, just disconnect that Xbox from the network. Also, before and after you play online with your modified console, bring up your command prompt, and type "ipconfig /release" to release the current IP. Then type ipconfig /renew, to obtain a brand new IP address. (This is for windows. For Mac user's I'm sure it's along the same lines.) Q. - What all can we do online? Is there anything that's an instant ban? A. - Not exactly. You can play games like you would normally and your chances of getting banned are way less. However, if you plan to use your modified console for what's it made for, then your chances are much higher. Do NOT try and run homebrew. I heard there's an xex menu that is undeteced by Microsoft, but I don't trust the sources. All credits for this FAQ goes to TheAye Thanks! Instructions how to set up E-XBLS: 1. Flash your console(R-JTAG/JTAG) with an unbanned KV(RGLoader _may_ work) (I think latest XBLStealth will also load KV.bin from hdd root) 2. Place the XBLStealth.xex on root of hdd 3. Add XBLStealth.xex as FIRST Plugin in Dashlaunch IMPORTANT!!!!! 4. Disable in Dashlaunch Liveblock 5. Play Live?? Notice: If you disable liveblock without XBLS loaded, m$ servers will ignore you for a few Warning, it has come to our attention that there may be an update rolling, if you have the avatar update and still get an update prompt, please wait for the update to roll completely and then for us to update our server emulator, which will happen as fast as possible Upon the first connection attempt the console will hard reset after a MAC address change, do not be alarmed! Download for the xex is in the video description ;) Credit goes to 0x60000000 for the stealth & XeSkynet for the topic layout.
