I have been reading heaps & found many tuts for everything here & thanks to all that have shared their experiences. I have a console thats been softmodded & it seems as though the original dash "might be" corrupt a bit as it doesn't load properly & gives error 21 msg. But it still does play games etc ok. Can this be fixed ?? I am looking to change out the original hdd & upgrade to a 60-80GB, are there any Brands/ sizes thats more reliable than others ?? I have found all the software required I think ( thanks to Chunkhead ) http://forums.afterdawn.com/thread_view.cfm/557450#3371151 to do the softmod. As I have a "chipped" console as well , do I need the memory card & Action Reply & 1 of the 3 named games to start the softmod process , OR can I use details from my modded console ?? I have a Slayers Evox cd already.. can this be used ?? or is it primarily for chipped consoles ?? My current chipped console runs EvoX & XBMC.. and they work fine for me.. Is it possible to use exactly the same software on a softmodded console so they are more compatible ?? Are these a good combo or should I use something else ??
