    error 21 - 21 - anywhere -

    This error says that the machine was booted to display a error, basically someone told the machine to reboot (or launch a xbe) with this flag, and the error code just means its been rebooted by the flag

    This occurs frequently when the xbox is unable to boot due to dashboard changes being made (ie Gcue true blue hasnt been resigned, parts of the stock dash are missing - incomplete FTP backups copied to a new HDD for example).

    Fix if I were you i would get a slayer 2.7 iso off bittorrent and burn it to a cd-r once you do that I will help you with the rest

    Use AID 3.0
    to fix error 21
    or uninstall the softmods go to your HDD and delete anything taht has to do with soft mods except sid 4.0 and the other linux files keep those 2and delete the rest the reinstall the mod but dont forget to make and Ms back-up and eeprom back-up

    It depends on the drive in your xbox mine has no problem reading them(cd-r's and dvd-r's), while my friends wont read cd-r's but it will read dvd-r's

    DAMN, no luck i tried them both on cd rw and cd r but it wont boot so i am doing a usb hack throught the memory card it boots to a screen that looks like binary code? i know the xbox architecture is just like a pc but binary code on the xbox? well anyway could i boot the xbox by putting it on the mem stick that connects throught the usb

    Look for wrighting on the cable if it says "LAN" anywhere on it it will work. If it fits into your pc it will work.

    you will need to find the ip address of you xbox you can do this in evox by going to system managment.

    Your xbox password and user name will be

    xbox (for both)

    and you should use 21 in the box that asks you for the port to use.

    yes if your cable came with a pc it will work then you can ftp to your pc and fix whatever you want.
