nikeymikey posted a topic in RepairI 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 softmod. Then hopefully this bastard will boot again Heres the link .... http://icode4.coffee/?p=22
Sooooo i have a MAJOR issue. I had softmodded my Xbox and accidentally unlocked the HDD now it's somewhat useless.. (User: ecstone ) provided me with some info about building a EEPROM reader, but finding each individual parts to build it is gonna take some time and there is none on sale online... I was wondering if I can just purchase a modchip and just install Hexen to a brand new HDD (500Gb) or will i still have my Error 5 code to deal with????
Have been watching the null eeprom video on YouTube, specially interested for the 1.6 xbox, little confused on the upgrade of a larger hard drive, after the null eeprom you can't just drop in a blank larger hard drive or can you like you can with Tsop system.
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 controller port to watch movies. Remove the disc to continue." I have a brand new DVD Playback Kit so I put it in. No luck. Tried a movie DVD. Still the same message. I pulled the EEPROM using PonyProg. It looks okay although it will not load into LiveInfo. ConfigMagic also rejects it. I have looked through the raw edit of the EEPROM but am not sure what to look for. This one seems like it is above my pay grade! I am hoping for another perspective on it. I must be missing something here but don't know what it is. Any help? Thanks.
