  • Just Brought a Crystal XBox but I Am Confused. Evo X
    Hello i just brought a Crystal Xbox and i need some help. I have been speaking to the guy who sold it to me, He knows nothing about modding but has been super helpful, He brought the xbox of his friend before him, But his friends got the xbox of someone else before that. What i need help with is distinguishing weather the Xbox that i have brought has a mod chip or not? He tells me when he turns on the Xbox an Evo x logo come up in the top left corner. He also says it is region free, and plays DVDs without the dvd add on. I asked for more detail and this is what he...

  • Internal Ir Mod/Internal Logitech Controller Dongle
    I am looking for someone who is able to preform the following mods. X3IR mod and the internal Logitech controller dongle mod. Thank you.
  • Internal Logitech Controller Dongle
    I have an X3 modded console with the pro faceplate. I’ve seen videos online of people using dvd remotes to remotely power on the system. I have also seen videos of people using the Logitech wireless controllers with the dongles mounted inside the machine. I am wondering if this is something that can be/has been done, and if so are there any tutorials/ people willing to do the mod for $. Thank you.
  • Toslink Adapter for Monster Cable Lightwave 100X Optical Cable - Where Can I Get One?
    Hi. I ordered a Monster Cable Lightwave 100X Optical Cable from eStarland to connect to the Monster Cable component cable I also purchased for the original Xbox but the dunces sent me just the 10' Monster Cable optical cable and no toslink adapter to connect it to the component cable so I can get 5.1 surround sound with my OGXbox. Is this a standard toslink adapter that is readily available or is it one of Monster Cable's proprietary monsters? In either case, where can I get one? Thanks for any help. ETA: added photo of what the toslink adapter looks like, btw.
  • Usb2ide Idea
    So i sort of have an idea that might or might not work. Since the size of USB drives are becoming bigger and bigger, wouldn't it be a good idea to use a USB drive as hard drive on Hardmodded/tsopped consoles? If you use an IDE2USB converter and use a USB3 extension cord to have an external USB port, you could easily plug in a stick. ofcourse i have no clue how and if the xbox could handle this but if it can, you could read your usb3 drive on a pc and easily add emulators etc on the stick using something like fatxplorer and have multiple "hard drives" that are easily swapped. Thoughts?

  • Dev Box Eeprom Challenges
    A fellow Xbox fan requested that I put an X3 modchip in his Dev Box so he can use all 128M of RAM, although we had a conversation about the limited library. He wants the modchip instead of a simple TSOP. I have the mainboard and drive working. It boots to the MS clock/calendar initially. After setting the time I am able to see 3 standard menu options: Memory, Music and Settings. Clearly it has not been updated to include Live. The only game save is Revolt (Microsoft ATG). It will not play a game but gives this message: "You need to connect the DVD Playback Kit receiver to a...
  • Selling Loaded Drives/Systems
    I wanna hear some stories from the buyers and sellers of pre-loaded HDD and consoles. why do people do this? is this actually sustainable? its alot of work to build your own, i get that. But once you have it, its simple to clone. Again, there is a demand, a proper 2tb build can take... well a long time. When do the authorities step in and take you away? Is anyone aware of what can happen to the people selling? I'm not. I am seeing some crazy numbers on certain ebay accounts and the like around the web, some of it is clearly the product of elbow grease and...

  • 2tb Sata Install Problems
    I am using a generic IDE to SATA( I have had it forever- cant find any identifiers) & a WD black 2tb. I am getting super slow boot times & random partition corruptions. I have followed the tutorials as far a using xbpart 1.0 to make a 230mb partition, then 1.1 to make it 927.78 w 64k clusters. I feel that I am doing it all right, but G never shows up & F is never the right size in other apps (eolution x - unleash x - XBMC) Also sometimes C or E will just end up 0mb after a reboot. Just gone. I am also getting super slow boot times & am running...
  • V1.0 Dvd Drive Madness - Only Thomson Works?
    A friend gave me a v1.0 board that was causing problems for him. I put it in a standard early case, attached everything and proceeded to test it. I wanted to update the BIOS (TSOP) so I attempted to run the Hexen DVD. The DVD tray would open, I placed the disk in the tray and pushed the button to close. The Unleash X menu continued to show "Open". I tried this with two known good working DVD drives - one a Samsung and the other a Hitachi.. I changed cables and PSU with no difference. I also checked to see if there were any bent pins for the DVD power cable. All good. I switched-out...
  • Emulators In XBmc4gamers
    Is there any documentation on how to set up emaulators in XBMC4Gamers? I have XBOX games showing nicely (although they are on F; and the main loader says they are on E:, it works, so I'm gonna leave it) but I cannot for the life of me figure out how emulators are meant to work. I have 2 installed under F:\Emulators and XBMC does pick them up, but when I select one of them it just launches the emulator rather than showing a list of games to choose form like others have shown in videos. How do you set that functionality up?

  • Hyperkin Hdmi Cable
    Hi Guys. I received the Hyperkin HDMI cable today that I ordered a few days ago. Unfortunately it didn't perform any better than the Pound cable, in fact I think the Pound cable is better. I have five XBOXs; three v1.0s, one v1.3 and one v1.4. All of my XBOXs have the Conexant video encoder except for the v1.4 which has a Focus video encoder. Of the five systems I have, two of the v1.0s work well with the Pound cable and the Hyperkin cable, (no interference or noise in the signal). But with one of the v1.0s as well as the v1.3 and v1.4 there is noise and interference with both the Pound...
  • Modchip Installed, Now What Next
    hi, i have got my xbit 1.5 to work after 5 days messing with it i have loaded the iND-BiOS.Beta.Feb-11-05.67.bin (256k) and when i start the xbox i see a screen saying ind bios. but then it load to the standart dashboard with no new options. do i need now a hexen dvd and make a softmod to unlock everything? i thought when you dissable the modchip the xbox will start up in stock config, but when i softmod it this will still be active. what should i do next after booting the new bios: make a softmod or get another dashboard? i think it goes only like this: softmod and then...

  • Possible? Use Tsop_m7 Bios To Recover Modchip
    Dear, all Xbox fellow I had a spiderchip since 14 years ago for my xbox, which is still working. ABout 2 weeks ago, I wrongly flash 512kb bios into my xbox (1.1) TSOP (1mb), causing it unbootable. I was trying to find a way to recover the TSOP, and one way was to use a modchip with special bios "tsop_m7.bin" for recovery. So I did flash the spiderchip with tsop_m7.bin. But I forgot my DVDROM is not working, so this method is not workable. And eventually the TSOP issue was resolved with "3-wire trick". Now, the spiderchip is left useless without normal bios, and it seems...
  • XBlast Os In Tsop (XBox 1.1) ?
    Hi, all Some of you might know I have already had a Xbox (v1.1) with TSOP flashed (M8+ only) recently For a v1.1 Xbox, its TSOP (1MB) with only 256k M8+ is a bit wasted. Meanwhile, i read about Xblast OS which Forlorn Penguin suggested me before to use it to flash BIOS to TSOP. And Now I realized that Xblast OS is not just a bios flash program, but with multiple useful tools. and more importantly to me, it can be flashed/installed to Modchip (including TSOP) I read that its can be flashed to onboard TSOP, as Bennydiamond said in AG forum...
  • Old X2 Duo Gs Power Cycles
    I have an xbox v1.6 that i had modded with the white X2 duo GS probably 12 years ago that worked flawlessly. Well i put it in storage and took it out maybe a year ago and the HDD died and i could not get it to boot from either of the banks on the chip, both just make it turn on and off. The xbox is softmodded now with a new HDD but i really want to get this chip working again. does anyone have any ideas to get a bios back on it or why it might have just died from not being used? i also have two other xbox systems, one of them v1.4 that i just did the tsop flash for the first time using...
  • Looking for a Little Softmod Hd Assistance
    I have a Halo Edition 1.4 softmodded XBox that I'm trying to upgrade with a SATA drive. I bought a couple of the Kingwin adapters and I've tried about 6 different SATA drives with no luck. I've tried using both Hexen 2017 and Slayer to no avail. I've tried different 40 pin and 80 pi cables, pretty much changed out everything. Of the six drives I tested, I got one to format all the way through using Hexen but it will not boot the Xbox, just gives the standard error. I did lock the drive and backup the eeprom. I worked all day on this Sunday and frankly I'm about to throw in the towel. It's so...
