I have an Xbox 360 all open here, an Elite from 2008 with what I believe is a Falcon board. I bought this second hand and hoped to make a game console out of it for me and the kids. Much to my disappointment, I have the "Play DVD" syndrome on the drive, meaning likely that the previous owner replaced the drive thinking it would solve all of his problems...and of course it did not because he didn't flash over his old DVD key to the drive firmware...so this is where my saga begins! Let me save a lot of grief for you and give you a down an dirty of my frustration history. Bought an IBM with LPT serial port, wired to Xbox and used NandPro to download NAND. Was successful. Thought I had to R-JTag the Xbox in order to recover my DVD key. Installed R-JTag....never has worked, ripped it out...installed CR3Lite (again...all the time thinking I needed to jtag or RGH2 the box in order to get my CPU Key and more importantly to me....the darn DVD Key!)...couldn't get that to work either! So, this is where I'm at.
Removed CR3Lite from board and only connection is Nand-X wiring harness
Read and got 4 identical NAND dumps (using Jungle Flasher this time of course!)
Created ECC* file
Wrote ECC file to NAND (how do you upload a pic of jrunner screenshot!?) I did this by soldering the Nand - X wiring board directly to the board, and using JRunner Programmer to read and write NAND.
Got the following message:
Finished Checking Files
Nand Initialization Finished
Falcon Manually Selected
Flash Config: 0x01198010
in 0:18 minec
Unplugged power cord
Plugged in power cord (crossed fingers as instructed)
Console WILL not boot to Xell?
All I've got is a blank black screen....a flashing green center light on the console.....and when I hard restart the console...sometimes I get a circle of green lights....but still not boot into Xell?
Question - Do I have to have the mod chip installed in order to boot to Xell to recover my DVD key?
If yes....can I use the CR3Lite chip RGH2 method to get it to glitch?
I would very much appreciate the communities help on this problem. I have read...and read...and read until my eyes are bulging outta my head....but I just cannot find an answer to my dilemma. Please help this old boy!
