hey guys thanks for helping. okay, i have an unleash x dashboard as a result from a softmod when i installed linux. i didn't back up the eeprom because i was being stupid and was so syched about hopefully getting my hands on the xbox media center. unfortunately i couldnt do the file transfer and (i know i know i had flashxp and a REAL crossover cable and a good comp but NOTHING WORKED!) then i was just fed up so i said screw it but now i cant get back my original xbox dashboard and plus when i try to play dvd's (the videos not games) they dont play (i even have the plugin thingy too) and the ever-so-classic error 21 comes on the screen. so tell me, am i screwed or is there anyway out of this mess? thanks for your time.
