I have not found my answer at Xbox-scene but hope the pros over here can help me. I´m not a total noob, but i have done about 20-30 jtags and countless amounts of fw flashes, wii and classic xbox but i´m completely stuck now.
I have my friends Jasper 16mb that has bad blocks @11 & 2be.
With some hassle i could get XBR going a year ago, but when i tried to update to freeboot i did not remap anything and used flash360. The box would not turn on and i wanted to put the old XBR back for now. I had a backup of a remapped XBR and after shorting the nand i could flash it.
Then i tried to make a compatible freeboot image but it would never work. I always had to reflash xbr and try again. I must have done that 4-5 times until i gave up for the day.
The next day i accidentally flashed a fresh XBR image that had not been remapped and it errors out after 30-60 secs. The worst thing is that nandpro cant find the nand anymore!
Basically i´m stuck since i cant Read/write/erase or boot Xell
When i turn it on it just errors after about a minute (RROD or 2 red lights)
Does anyone know what i could try but i have:
-Tried shorting the nand
-Plugging it in when i issue the -e16 command
-soldered the lpt under the motherboard
-tried about 20-30 tries of pressing eject and hoping for a miracle
-tested the lpt on my own xenon box and it works on that.
I hope you have some advice for me since it´s been driving me crazy for 2 weeks. I have a spare nand, but i dont have the equipment nor the skills to replace it. Worst case scenario i would need professional help but i´m located in Iceland so that makes things a bit more complicated.
Looking forward to what you guys think
Thanks in advance
