i downloaded the stardust.iso. and followed these instructions on how to FTP on my xbox without burning anything.

now when i get to the final part of extracting (DISTRO.RAR) the file "rootfs" is always either corrupt or crashes my winrar. as well i have downloaded the ISO again from another source and tried.

can anyone help?

Try unraring on a different computer - sounds like yours is broken. Or maybe try upgrading winrar.

i downloaded with firefox

weird thing is that i extract stardust.iso fine, then DISTRO.RAR which is within the original ISO is the archive which has the problems extracting "rootfs"
