  1. Tsop or Modchip?

    hey everyone, i am just wondering which is better tsop or modchip? pros and cons to both or is it up to personal preference? i like modchips as it gives me a chance to use my soldering iron which i dont get to do much, but am just wondering what others think
  2. Tsop Flashing 1.1

    Hey everyone! So I have a 1.1 xbox and I know that some of the motherboards are different and you may need to soughter different points as a result of that. Can anyone send me details on how the different boards look and what are the proper points to soughter? Help would be appreciated!
  3. I was bored this evening so I pulled out an Xbox and TSOP'd it with iND-BIOS and installed a new old-stock 500GB IDE Maxtor hard drive. The clock capacitor has been removed, the DVD drive (Samsung) has a new drive belt installed and the case has been cleaned and polished-up, looks great. Currently transferring over XBMC4Gamers as the primary dash and all emulators are outfitted with the ResurrectionXtras video and box art/screen shot packs-- speaking of emulators, this includes the latest build of EWJ's curated Surreal64 romset, and almost every game runs great. The controller is in great condition as well, disassembled and shell cleaned. Asking $90+shipping if anyone is interested. Thanks!
  4. Conductive Paint Tsop Method

    Hi Guys. I just wanted to share that I used Bare Contuctive Electric Paint for the first time today to TSOP flash one of my Xboxs and it was the easiest TSOP flash I have ever done. I used a toothpick to apply the paint. The paint is kind of thick and it was really easy to apply. I bought it at Amazon. Here is the link: https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B00KBXT6JW/ref=oh_aui_detailpage_o00_s00?ie=UTF8&psc=1
  5. I have a version 1.4 console with a modchip installed due to a bad TSOP flash. I cannot seem to find the location of the A15 point to attempt the repair process. Can anyone point me to an image? Thanks.
  6. 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 https://assemblergames.com/threads/release-xblast-os-v0-50.65434/ However, there is no specific instruction and video that I can search from google to specify this. So I hope someone here, based on your best knowledge, could share and confirm whether this is really workable for 1MB TSOP Here comes my plan and assumption, can anyone help me to verify? 1. install/upload Xblast in C: drive per its instruction in its zip file 2. run xblast.xbe, enter its program/OS 3. Go to flash menu, select Bank2 (xblast OS), (Here, I am not sure if it will show 3 Banks as xblast illustrated, or 4 banks as my current TSOP has) 4. select crcwell.bin, then flash --> reboot 5. Xbox enter xblast os, go to flash menu, select bank0 (512k), choose X2.5032.bin, flash --> reboot 6. Xbox enter xblast os, go to flash menu, select bank1 (256k), choose M8+.bin , flash --> reboot Will there be any issue for the procedures above? Your help would be much appreciated ! Peter
  7. Hi, All Xbox Mod Experts Currently the SpiderChip on my Xbox v1.1 doesn't work very stable (likely because of its solderless type). Hence, I am planning to TSOP with X2 5035. However, my Xbox's DVD is faulty and unable to read any CD/DVD (including original DVD). So I think I have to flash TSOP from HDD. All the tutorial I managed to find is to use HeXEn DVD. However, I noticed that in HeXEn TSOP tutorial, if the Xbox has WinBond TSOP, it will load and flash via Gentoox, For non-WinBond, it will flash through normal EvoxDashboard. Thus, for my Xbox (v1.1) with faulty DVDROM, instead of HeXEn DVD, can I flash the TSOP directly through either Evox Dashboard or Gentoox? and if it is possible, which method would be more safe and successful ? Thanks in advance Peter
  8. I wasn't sure whether to post this here or in repair, but since it happened during a TSOP mod I though I'd try here first. Picked up a 1.4 version at a Salvation Army today, green model worked great but filthy inside. Cleaned it up, removed clock capacitor and did the two TSOP points. Reassembled and before I even load into Hexen my video signal has lines going across the screen. After messing around I find that the problem is only with component output (hd output) and standard def av works fine. Thing is, component worked fine before I disassembled so I'm convinced the problem must have been caused by something I did - but all I did was pull the clock cap and do the 2 tsop points... Tried another component cable.. same result. Tried another tv, got a glitched looking display or 'mode not supported'. I'm convinced it's now outputting some garbled attempt at an hd signal that neither of my tvs can process correctly. Have 2 other xboxes and both display hd perfect with the same cables and tvs. I guess I can just sell it with some standard cables but losing the hd kinda kills the awesomeness so I'd really like to fix this if possible. This is like the second weird obscure xbox mystery for me in like a week, sheesh:)
  9. Hi Everyone, As the title says, how can I set xbmc4gamers as my dashboard on a TSOP xbox. current dash is unleashx. Thanks,
  10. 1.0 Tsop Bios

    I have a 1.0 version motherboard. I just did a tsop mod to it.. Actually I had another 1.0 motherboard that I bricked by flashing a bios from the xbox autoinstaller disk it was the 1mb x3 bios that bricked the board and I do not want to make that same mistake again any one got any bios recommendations. At the moment I have the evo from hexon 2018 disk f and g
  11. When To Solder Board for Tsop

    I have completely taken apart a 1.0 system and removed the clock capacitor, cleaned the CPU, GPU and both heat sinks and reinstalled them with good quality thermal paste. I intend on TSOPing this system. I know it has to be soft modded first. I’d like to solder the two points on the board to unlock write capability of the EEPROM while the system is apart. Is it okay to do this , then put the system back together, do the Softmod and finally the TSOP flash? Or do I have to put the system back together and do the Softmod before I solder the points on the board? Thanks for your help.
  12. I have been working on my first moded xbox i Tsops flashed ind bios on it and all went well next i was working on a HDD Chimp would lock up every time the new drive was plunged in so i went to format it useing HEXEN 2017 it did finish the format when i boot this drive i get to a Black screen no errors and i can reboot hexen tried it 2 times last night any ideals of what i can do info on this hdd its on the list for 1.6 with 80 cables i figured it would work on a 1.0 with tsop and 80 cables its SATA have a converter with compactors and a jumper and padding on back im at a Total loss at this point
  13. About To Tsop First Time

    This is my frist time working with a Tsop im looking for advice ik i got 1..0 1.1 versions does this wire need to be a single copper or can it be threaded also hexen i can find but a bios checker i can not fine any where
  14. I cloned the stock drive on my softmodded Xbox to a 500gb drive that was in my dead TSOP xbox using Chimp and locked it. The drive boots up just fine. I then use HeXEn disc to install Krayzie One Click softmod, and that was successful. I reboot into HeXEn, and I can see the F and G, but F looks empty in the file explorer (it says F has 35mb free, when it should be about 20GB free), and G says there is 0 space free. G doesn't even show up in UnleashX even though F and G are enabled. How can I get the contents of F and G to show up? I really dont want to have to reformat F and G/re-transfer everything if I can avoid it.
  15. Bricked 1.0 Tsop Flash

    I had a successfully flashed 1.0 mobo with an X2 BIOS. I got a little curious and flashed the X3 3294 BIOS and now my console wont turn on. Light turns green, fans spin and then immediately turn off. Honestly, I kinda expected it. But what are my recovery options? I know I can install a modchip on top of it, but I don't want to fork out an arm and a leg for a good one. Theres some cheap ones on ebay right now for about $5 and I'm curious if I buy one, install it and go to reflash, how do I get it to flash the mobo TSOP and not the modchip? Thanks for reading.
  16. Only recently ive been looking at this manufacturing proces part where they get the kernel on the motherboard. "our" Blake Clements @OGXbox Admin linked me at facebook to the following url: http://www.ogxbox.com/archive/xboxsecurity.html look at the Modchip part. It states that But I do not know if this is said based on the observation mentioned or based on internal Microsoft or flextronics manufacturing personal. Blake also said that: So, the LPC port was used for programming? A bed of nails (pogo pins) should and probably be used to connect the write enable pins on the motherboard to enable the flash writing of the then onboard tsop. I do not know for sure if this is posible but I rather for now asume it was. because we cant flash tsop today whne the xbox has been booted from LPC (modchip boots can only flash modchip, not the tsop, even of you remove the modchip prior to flashing) Connecting to lpc and connecting the write enable lines using pogopins could be done, altho I dont know how they would write to flash from LPC. the MCPX doesnt allow flash write in a LPC boot right? maybe a unkown mode? anyway, pure onboard tsop writing by connecting to the tsop directly would be a pain, but posible with fine pitched pins. not sure if the board would allow that with the mcpx on the same wires. All logic I can come up with is that MS would send their kernel to the tsop manufactorer and let them preprogram all tsops before soldering. then at the factory MS could use a bed of pogopins and a "recovery disk" to install a newer kernel if they wanted as long as the xbox booted from tsop. any other sources or interviews that claim or verify either side are welcome. movies and pictures of this proces too. most details I know came or will be added to: http://xboxdevwiki.net/Manufacturing_Process
  17. Tsop Question

    Ok so I have TSOPd 4 xboxs before but ive done it to them all with bigger HDDs installed. Can i use a F and G .67 bios on a stock HDD or will it cause issues. I just wanna pre flash it for a bigger hdd later.
  18. Hello everyone, I just acquired a XBox with 128Mb and 1.4GHz (thanks to N64Freak in passing for his great work and availability). I am very satisfied but being used to NDure and NKPatcher to play the game in ISO format, Having a first XBox (softmod) with 2Tb and all games / homebrews in XISO format (faster FTP transfer, take less space on the hard drive ...), I will obviously want the same thing on this new console. Apparently, the bios is "x2_4983.67.bin" but I do not have a file "x2config" on C. According to your answers, I have to flash my bios with the "ind-bios 5003.67" and then put the file configuration "ind-bios.cfg" at the root of C like this: 480P=1 ; Default=0 USEUSEALLMEMORY=1 ;Use 128mb of Ram if Available Default=0 IGRLOADSDASH=1 ;Load Dashboard on IGR Default=0 IGRMODE=1 ;IGR Mode 0=off 1=compatible 2=quick Default=2 DEFAULTXBE=\Device\CDrom0\default.xbe DASH1=\Device\CdRom0\default.xbe DASH2=\Device\Harddisk0\Partition1\Apps\Patcher\Patcher.xbe DASH3=\Device\Harddisk0\Partition1\dashboard\default.xbe That's OK? Then where to find the patch? I saw in "CDROM modchip.rar" a folder "Kernel Patcher", it is this file? Where should I create it with "make_with_listing.bat"? Thank you in advance for your answers.
  19. use an eprom (27C2001/27C020 or bigger) or flashrom (29F020 or bigger) connect pins 22, 24 and 31 of the eprom to GND (pin 16 of the eprom). you might have to connect 31 to 5V (pin 32) if you are using a flashrom. Reset is A18 on this diagram. FOR XBOX v1.0/v1.1 The two unused points are only two additional Adress-Lines for the Chip (with which you can access everything beyong 256 kByte) ... so they are NOT needed. FOR XBOX v1.2/v1.3 (Thanks to D-BlooD who posted this diagram on forums.xbox-scene.com) FOR XBOX v1.4/v1.5 (Thanks to pcmerc who posted this diagram on forums.maxconsole.com) WE is the location you jump on the bottom of the board along with the other point on top that is standard on all motherboards. These are the write enable for reflashing the TSOP. Pad 33 is also known as link to 32 in previous pinouts.
  20. Tsop Version 1.0 Board

    Can someone please confirm that only the Pads at R7D3 (on the top of the board) and the Pads at R7R3 (on the bottom of the board) need to be soldered and there is no jumper wire or other modifications needed if the TSOP is a Winbond TSOP and not a Sharp TSOP.
  21. Which Bios for Tsop

    Just interested in which bios you flashed? I've used the Hexen 2017 disc and followed a tutorial on YT which suggested the M8 Evo x What are your suggestions and recommendations... and also why? i.e. what benefit, features etc... Thanks
  22. Flashing a Sharp TSOP

    Flashing a Sharp TSOP - Everything you need to know to flash a Sharp TSOP Xbox. There are a bunch of tutorials out there explaining how to flash TSOP, but not much info on flashing a *Sharp* TSOP. Because of this I feel it is my duty to write down my experience flashing my Sharp TSOP Xbox. The Sharp TSOP is not easy. It requires more soldering, more software, and more steps. Hopefully, this tutorial will make it a bit easier for you. THIS TUTORIAL ONLY COVERS SHARP TSOP! If your chip says 'ST', that does NOT mean "Sharp Technologies". If your chip does not have the SHARP logo on it, don't follow this tutorial. OK. BEFORE YOU CONTINUE, MAKE SURE YOU HAVE ALREADY SOFTMODDED YOUR XBOX! The Xbox is easy enough to softmod. Softmodding is not covered here. You should also be familiar with FTPing files to and from the Xbox, burning Xbox DVDs. These topics are not covered here. Step 1 - Figure out what version Xbox you have. ------------------------------------------------------------------------------- I found my serial number on the bottom of the case and looked it up online. It appeared to be a v1.1. This was good news since the v1.6 cannot be TSOPed. If you have a 1.6, stop now. Step 2 - Open it up and see what TSOP chip you have. ------------------------------------------------------------------------------- I opened up my Xbox and discovered I had a 1MB TSOP chip. Good news again, I think. 1MB sounds better than 256KB, right? But it was also a Sharp LH28F008SCT-L85 chip. Sharp TSOPs are the most difficult chips to flash. That's not good news. But it can be flashed. Step 3 - Start downloading your software. ------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Download the following Xbox tools: Hacky Rehash EurAsia Hexen Shambles Edit 2017 Step 4 - Take your motherboard out. ------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Carefully disconnect all the cables and remove the eleven screws holding the mobo down. The power connector was the hardest one for me. Apparently, you need three hands to do it. I used a Starbucks card to shove down into the molex connector to free the clips. Even then, it was a pain to remove. Step 5 - Soldering. ------------------------------------------------------------------------------- I am not gonna lie. The soldering is not easy at all. It's not for the faint of heart. It's the tiniest soldering I have ever done. I've soldered on old Atari 2600's, TI99-4/A computers, and modchipped Gamecubes. The Gamecube was by far the smallest soldering I had ever done, and prepared me for this task. Get yourself comfortable doing small soldering before proceeding. I am no pro, but I have some experience and I have accumulated some gear that I would consider essential in getting this soldering done. You will need the following: A magnifier. Mine is a visor type magnifier that I got on Ebay for around $15. 30 AWG jumper wire, and a suitable wire stripper. A small 1" scrap of stranded wire. The finest tip you can buy for your soldering iron. It will also be helpful to have some electrical tape, some flux, some small tweezers, very small cutters, very small needle nose pliers, a small vice or helping hands, some experience doing small soldering, and a very steady hand. 1. Solder the jumper wire on the bottom side of the mobo. Add some solder to the via and the pad. Don't hold the iron too long on the pad or it will come off. For the wire, I used 30 AWG jumper wire. Cut it to length, tin it, and tape it to the mobo in position. Use tweezers to hold it while you solder it down. 2. For the solder bridge, pull out a single strand from a stranded wire, get about an inch. Add solder to the pads. Tin the wire. Hold it with tweezers and heat it while you press it down into the melted solder. Once it's dry, snip off the excess wire. 3. Solder about 8" length of jumper wire to the pads on the top side of the mobo, but don't connect them. This is so that you can put the Xbox back together and join the wires after it boots. NOTE - If you boot up your Xbox with the wires connected (or jumped), it will just give you a black screen. You must boot up with the wires disconnected, then connect them after the Xbox has booted. It might be helpful to solder jumper pins on the ends so you can just place a jumper instead of twisting the wires together. 4. Inspect your soldering closely. Gently tug on the wires. Take high res photos of it and inspect the photos on the computer. Tape the wire to the mobo so it doesn't come loose. Once you are happy, put your Xbox back together. Just use one screw for the mobo. Don't plug power all the way in, just make it snug without clipping it down. Leave the two wires hanging out of the case. Leave the top lid off too. You won't need it until you are done. Step 6 - The software tools. ------------------------------------------------------------------------------- To flash your TSOP, you will need a bios file, and a tool to flash that bios file. 1. Bios file - It was recommended to me that I use the x2.5035.137.bin. This is a 1MB bios file that supports large hdds. I found this bios file (and a bunch of others) on the Hacky Rehash bios flashing disc. You can browse the disc on the Xbox or launch the disc and select "Copy BIOSes to E drive" and then FTP the bios file to your PC. Hexen also has some BIOS files. 2. Flash tool - For Sharp, it erases using a "Winbond" method which is block erase. That also suggests it will be using Raincoat to do the actual flashing. Raincoat is the tool that is used on EurAsia, and Hacky has the EurAsia tool on it. NOTE - It is not enough to just get the Hacky disc. You'll also want to get the EurAsia disc so you can make your bios disc. 3. Make the bios disc. In the EurAsia zip file, there is a folder called bios_disc. Copy that folder and name it something like My_Sharp_bios_disc. Next, copy your bios file (for me, it was x2.5035.137.bin) into the folder, then rename it to bios.bin. Next, you will want to edit the bios.txt file in that directory. I made mine say this: EurAsia TSOP bios disc This flash disc is for a Sharp TSOP. The bios.bin file is: x2.5035.137.bin Now, burn those files to a DVD using the ISO 9660 standard. Now you have your bios disc. NOTE - There is a README file in the EurAsia zip. You should read it too. It was gobbledeegook the first time I read it, but after a few failures, it all made sense. Step 7 - Time to do some flashing. ------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Power on your Xbox using the small button. Let it boot up, then connect the wires (or attach the jumper). Put the Hacky disc in, then launch the disc. In the Hacky's menu, select "Winbond" (not "1mb flash"). It will tell you to have your bios disc ready. At this point, just follow the directions. Don't lose power during the flashing or you will probably be bricked. Flashing will take approximately two minutes. Not more than five. It should first erase, then program, then verify. When it is done, it will eject the disc tray. Remove the disc and left it shutdown. EurAsia gets launched. I burned the bios disc improperly the first time and Eurasia rejected it. But Eurasia waited for me. It just kept looking for a disc and then ejecting the tray while I was busy burning a new bios disc. When I had a good bios disc burned, I waited for the tray to eject and then placed the disc in there and waited again for it to close. You can see the text from my bios.txt file here: Erasing, Programming, Verifying... When it boots back up, you should see the new boot animation. Congrats! You are now TSOP'ed! Xecuter logo in place of the Microsoft logo confirms it is booting your modded bios.
  23. TSOP Flash Guide

    This guide and pictures taken from: http://www.biline.ca/xbox_solder.htm TSOP Flashing Unlock points if you are unsure which Xbox version you have click Here TSOP unlock points for version 1.0/1.1 Xbox This is the top of the motherboard Connect the two solder pads at R7D3 as in photo above. This is the bottom side of motherboard Connect the two solder pads at R7R3 as in photo above. All Ver 1.0/1.1 Xbox's with a 'SHARP' TSOP chip must also connect the additional red wire as in the photo above. All other TSOP's DO NOT require this step. TSOP Unlock points for all Versions 1.2/1.3/1.4/1.5/ Xbox's This is the top side of the motherboard These Xbox's have both points located on the top of the motherboard, for the first point connect the two solder pads at R7D10 as in photo above. For the second point locate the junction between R7D2 and R7D1 and connect the two solder pads as in the photo above. After the solder points are completed you should re-assemble your xbox (but leave the top cover off) when the power button is pressed it should boot normally as it did before you started. Note if you get the message TSOP write protected while attempting to Flash the TSOP you might need to check and resolder the points to ensure a good connection was m while attempting to Flash the TSOP you might need to check and resolder the points to ensure a good connection was made. To split Split a 1MB TSOP (v1.0, v1.1) into 4 banks of 256k, the following picture explains how to accomplish this: Note: If you have a 1.6/1.6b Xbox, it has no TSOP and therefore you cannot flash it. You will have to install a modchip or softmod.
