    can i get a bit of help please, i have an xbox 360 with the error code e71 when my hard drive is connected, but if i disconnect the hard drive then boot up the xbox i get an e71 error code. So my main question is what order do they need to be fixed and how do you fix the e71 and e74 if you can. Sorry for the noobie question, but thats what i am :biggrin:

    E79 - This error occurs when your harddrive is defective, it might still work sometimes....
    There is also a small chance that it is a cold joint under the Southbridge causing problems with the I/O of the HDD. It can also be related to wiring the diodes while JTAGGING. Couldn't start xam.xex

    E71 - This error is related to a failed dashboard update, can also be NAND related if you have an Infectus chip. It can also often be caused by a cold joint under the Southbridge(if it wasnt caused by an update). According to XBH: Error within Xam

    I just got a secondary code 0111. It was GPU related because the screen was on the dash (while my console was overheated and flashing 3 rrod) and when I touched the GPU's heatsink the screen went green and I got that error code.

    You shouldn't be installing updates on your RGH unless it is a dual boot and on the stock NAND, or you are installing the avatar update on purpose.

    also, Buzz Lightyear i found another if youre willing to add it :smile:

    0022 - can also be cause if you attempted the rgh hack and used 50 ohm low loss cable for cpu_rst and grounded it, could cause a ground on the board around the jbc1 jumper making the console throw a 0022. - known fixes, desolder the motherboard - side cpu_rst cable and tape up to the tip and re solder. alternatively, tape around the point on the motherboard and resolder.

    E79 also means that you may have a bad nand flash...

    i bricked my jtag by updating dashlaunch while running RGloader.. is this a terrible thing or is it fixable? I get ZERO controller lights or red lights flashing, i left it booting for 3 minutes and it doesnt do ****. The center light glows and stays green. When i boot the console with eject, xell doesnt launch.. It does exaclty what booting from power button does. Please reply. Is this a type of crazy super messed up fried GPU "type" brick? Or is it a bad flash caused by dash launch updating. Please take that into consideration, my jtag was running fine with RGloader. But i updated dashlaunch and it told me to reboot the console, so i did but now it wont boot. Please help, is it a peice of trash or is it fixable?

    This is a bad NAND flash, I had my Jtag doing the same thing after flashing a new NAND with Flash360.

    On another note,does anyone know what is wrong if lights 1, 2 and 4 are red?
