  • Hdd Swap - Questions/Recommendations
    So now that I have got my new Dashboard running and have my games ready, it's time to start getting the stuff for the HDD swap. I am going to get a StarTech IDE2SAT2 adapter, but I know that the Xbox can be picky with what SATA drives it will work with. I was thinking of going with a WesternDigital Black or SeaGate. but what are the drives that people have the most success with? Also, in regards to size, are 3.5" drives a pain to fit inside the console? Or would it just save a lot of headache going with a 2.5" drive? Also, I'm a little confused on what steps I need to take to get it all...
  • Avalaunch Folder Icons?
    I have been using avalaunch for years and still like the interface. I am also using unleashX now to test and see how I like it. One thing I never really cared about until today is that when you setup a menu item, such as "Applications", there is no icon associated with it. I am using the project mayhem skin but have not found any way to set an icon on the menu entries in your main list. Any applications you direct link show the icon from the default.xbe or you can override by placing a 128x128 png icon in the folder and call it avalaunch_icon.png. Wondering if any of you have figured...
  • Which Bios
    Hi all I have a couple of X3 chips and have picked up a couple of xboxes now. Before I get started, I was wondering what considerations I need to make.for example. Console version? X3 chip BIOS? Ive also seen different sizes of BIOS files. Not sure if this matters? So basically, What is the investigation process that I should follow. I want to get everything ready before starting a tutorial. Thanks
  • Most Efficient External Disk for Isos
    I would like to store my ISOs and ROMs on an external USB disk utilizing a cable plugged into the controller port on the Xbox. Is this possible? Furthermore, which disks are recommended, and which bios/build would be best for this?
  • Fastest Cable for X-Link Kai/Ftp?
    Is there any benefit to using a Cat6e crossover cable vs. any other type of crossover cable? I expect that the limiting factor would be the NIC in the Xbox, but I was curious to know if there are any benefits to using newer cabling standards for X-Link and FTP.

  • Dead Ethernet Port?
    Hello guys! Let me begin by articulating my end goal: I would like to transfer my ripped Xbox games to my HTPC. I'm hoping I can use an Xbox emulator rather than the console. I prefer my PC controller and the HDMI connection on my HTPC. Since the day I got it modded, I could never get the XBpx to connect to the internet. I can't connect using the Unleash X dashboard or the regular Xbox dashboard. A few days ago, I bought the "usb to XBox cable" to see if I could transfer the files directly to a usb stick, but I couldn't figure out a way to do that either.. I've watched videos and...

  • XBox Audio Buzz/Hum When Using Component Cables
    As the title says, I have an Xbox with an incredibly annoying buzz/hum problem. The buzz comes from the speakers of the TV, not the Xbox itself. And only occurs when using the component cables. When using composite cables, the audio is perfectly fine. Haven't tried SCART as I do not have the cable. I'm pretty sure this issue wasn't an issue just a few months ago. I've tried using different power cables, different power sockets (in case of grounding issue)... I think SOMETIMES it depends on what game is being played whether the buzz appears. My Xbox is...
  • Read Eeprom From XBox Motherboard With Raspberry Pi
    I dont know if this has been put up on here before, but i came across this during my quest to fix a v1.2 xbox that wont boot. I have at some point managed to bork the hard drive during this quest Any how this webpage shows how to read an eeprom from an xbox using a Pi and a pin header normally used for mounting modchips in an xbox.. I have installed the program on my pi and got everything ready, just waiting for my header wires to arrive and then im goin to give it a go. My thinking is if i can read the xeeprom i can then use xboxhdm2.3usb to rebuild the hard drive and install a...
  • XBox 1.2 - 1.5 Christmas Lights
    The dreaded lights have finally arrived. I recieved my xbox second hand and it was already modded. I'm sure there's guide to this somewhere but I haven't seen it. Any ideas to the common causes and checks I should run? I've already started to take it apart and can't see anything terribly wrong, but I'm no expert...
  • Partly Working Madcatz Wireless Controller for Parts.
    Is anyone interested in an partly working orange Madcatz controller. It is wireless, the rubber is in bad condition, the case is good though. One rumble motor need to be soldered, the triggers needs to be pushed hard to get them to max and it is dismantled. It comes with the receiver and all parts. I have no idea on price, so open for offers if anyone is interested. Shipping must be covered by buyer, and tbh it can be a bit expensive from here. Sent from my 16th using Tapatalk
