Issue Loading Chimp261812

Post by NeMesiS » Mon Mar 20, 2017 4:45 am

Im a bit of seasonal modder but after 6 months im back at it...
I picked myself up a couple of 2tb Seagate Drives (ST2000DM006)
installed them with compatible SATA converters and 80wire IDE cable's
to consoles that have been TSOP flashed with iND-BIOS 5003
Using my evox auto installer I formated all partitions at 16k clusters
I continued by installing XBMC and other Apps to C & E partitions
Next I wanted to reformat F & G partitions using Chimp261812
I tried both XBlast OS and Chimp Loader Versions
but they both hang at the same place as shown in the images
I'm sure theres something I'm missing...

Using component cables? if so you need to use standard AV cables.

Damn it, I remember now this happens all the time... "File Permissions"
for some reason when I use my Linux only Laptop and FTP, I loose permissions
I've gotten around this in the past by using a Windows Platform
Even if I chmod these files they always loose file permissions after FTP

I've finally had some time to have a good look at Chimp Loader,
First of all compliments to Rocky5 for he's great work, I am definitely impressed
Its good to see an automated version of gentoox loader that requires no input

Personally I use Chimp to format 2Tb drives on hardmodded consoles
Initially I format my drives with evox then split F&G evenly using Chimp
One thing I'm not sure about is the purpose of XBP Table Writer?

When I go to modchips/advanced features it gives a dialog about un/locking
Its not clear what will happens if I accept or does it go into another menu?

Would it be difficult to add a feature to change the region of the eeprom from
pal to ntsc for the purposes of enabling 720p and eliminating the need for Enigmah?

If you dont mind I would really like to use this to further my TSOP Flasher project,
I've had a bit of a look at the initrd to see if I could make sense of it all.
How would I go about getting it to launch a script?

XBP Table Writer is used to write a partition table to a drive that doesn't have one, i.e. drives formatted with UnleashX, evox dash eg... Chimp 261812 will only clone F and G partitions with a valid partition table.

When I go to modchips/advanced features it gives a dialog about un/locking

that unlocks the locking and unlocking options for the master drives

Would it be difficult to add a feature to change the region of the eeprom from
pal to ntsc for the purposes of enabling 720p and eliminating the need for

that would need to be done via gentoox loader, but it's safer to do it via configmagic or enigmah

you will need Linux and you just mount the initrd and then you can edit the scripts or add a few more

Alright cool, so its only required if one is going to clone a drive.
I havnt cloned a drive before, what kinda transfer rate are we looking at?

Yea I gathered that but "Advanced Features" kinda implies that theres more than one feature
when the only feature is HD locking so why not name it "HD Locking" or something?

Fair enough...

Yea I have Linux and know how to mount, like I said I've already had a look at the contents trying
to make sense of it all but it is far more complex than the much older xbox linux distro i"ve been using.
From memory my old distro is using 2.4 kernel where chimp uses 2.6, correct me if I'm wrong.
And I only have busybox 0.8 with very few commands where as chimp has busybox 1.21
I tried updating my distro but just could never seem to get it to work...
I will admit my skills are limited as I've never had any education with this sorta stuff,
I pick-up what I can over the internet and the rest is mostly trial and error...
So my first attempt was to throw in a script replacing linuxrc but as expected it went into kernel panic
I tried this because thats how my old distro worked and much of the process was contained within that one script
I had a bit off a poke around the /etc/init.d directory as I believe this is where I should be looking
Most particularly the "rcS" script, would this be where I could insert my script?
