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.
I have softmodded a v1.1 XBOX with a Sharp TSOP using Softmod Deluxe v5.11 and have experienced a few issues:
When sending files to the XBOX via Filezilla, the system frequently freezes and sometimes restarts. This happes especially with large files.
The lights around the eject button behave differently than stock. When I make changes in settings they don't seem to work. For instance, even when I set it to do so, the light around the eject button will not flash when the drive is busy. Also, even when I set the light to be green, it is green when I first turn the system on, then changes to orange while the softmod is booting then turns back to green again.
When I make changes to settings in the settings menu of the UnleashX dash, they don't carry over to the settings menu in the softmod menu. I find I have to make setting changes in two places.
Have you guys experienced this? Is this normal for this softmod?
Which softmod do you guys prefer between NDURE and Softmod Deluxe? If I want to switch to NDURE, do I select the remove softmod option in Softmod Deluxe, then install NDURE? Or can I install NDURE over Softmod Deluxe without removing it first.
(I've decided to just leave this XBOX softmodded since it has the Sharp TSOP chip which is more involved in TSOPing than the others.)
Thank you very much for all of your help and advice.
I wonder if anyone can help me with this. It seems the Xbox is crashing when accessing www.crusaders.no (which no longer exists). I've managed to turn off RSS feeds but it makes no difference. It's a real pain as I can't ftp into the xbox because it crashes before I can establish a connection. It works fine when ethernet is disconnected.
