Tsop With Nkpatcher Setup ?

Recommended Posts

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:

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.

I'm not sure how the bios patching works... but you may lose the ability to access half of your ram by doing so. It completely depends on what gets patched. I wouldn't do it if it were me. Just extract the isos.

What BIOS is flashed to the TSOP? I'm thinking iND-BiOS 5003!

You can access ISO's with a limited set of hacked BIOS's just like you can with nDure and NKPatcher. 

BIOS versions supported (some are for softmod use - original MS BIOS's and others hardmod use - modchip/TSOP) include:

  • 3944
  • 4034
  • 4817
  • 4981
  • 5003
  • 5035
  • 5101
  • 5530
  • 5713
  • 5838

I have my Xbox setup this way.  The only snag I have is once an ISO is mounted the Xbox has to be power cycled to get it unmounted. 

IGR inside the game returns to the beginning of booting up the game and not the dashboard as it does on a softmod. :(

There may be a way around this issue but I've yet to take the time to figure it out.

Flash ind-bios 5003 to your TSOP with hexen 2017 and then use this patcher to add XISO support to that bios.

if you can’t workout how to use the above source, maybe just leave what you’re doing and stick to playing games in a ripped format. ( only a handful of games need to be in ISO format to bypass the longfile name checks )

I would check with N64 Freak on the bios in case he made any modifications to allow you to run the upgraded CPU.  I ordered one as well and just received yesterday (have to put it in the case still so can't confirm anything).  I thought he mentioned IND-BIOS 5004 (which i assume would be a beta bios as HeXen and knowledge base always refers to 5003).

Indeed, I know the softmod very well but not the TSOP, hence my questions.

Last night, looking for information, I found this post: Please login or register to see this link.

So, as you said, I can use ISO with TSOP and patch it. Only problem, how to put it in place?

Obviously, the bios is the "x2_4983.67.bin" (256Kb) according to HeXen 2017. So I think I have to flash the TSOP with another version but which one?

By the way, I do not have a configuration file (x2config.ini) to set up the boot on the patch then boot to the dashboard ... I saw this link (Please login or register to see this link. ) but I do not know if I can I use it?

Thanks in advance for your answers and sorry for all my questions but I'm really new to hardmod :(

I see this link : Please login or register to see this link.

If IND-BIOS, file is "ind-bios.cfg" (root on C drive) right ? And i'll just put in :

Sorry for the double post ...

I (a little) advanced on the subject. I managed to flash my bios with HeXen in "IND 5003 67.bin" version and the "ind-bios.cfg" file is well supported !

I start well on my dashboard Unleash (e:\dashboard\default.xbe) like my other console with Ndure. Already, I'm happy :)

Then I tried the kernel patch (e:\Apps\Patcher\default.xbe), I reboot on Unleash, I choose my game in XISO and it starts well, no worries.

After, with the IGR, I always reboot on the game in XISO and I'm stuck on the game if I do not turn off the console. First problem.

Second problem: I tried to set up the automatic boot of the Kernel Patcher but as soon as I add it to the file "ind-bios.cfg", the console hangs and remains frozen ...

Here is the contents of the file:

I think my file "ind-bios.cfg" is good but it seems to me that the path is hardcoded in the patcher to point to \Device\Harddisk0\Partition1\default.xbe ... Hence my problem I think...

I still tried with a shortcut to point to "e:\dashboard\default.xbe" (my folder with Unleash) placed in root of E drive but no success ...

Thank you in advance for your help.

[EDIT] It's OK !!!!! I've used CDROM Modchip Patcher from Rocky5 and edit " xbe paths.asm" file to point to my dashboard ! Et voilà !!! :)

      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.

      Thanks  for any help.
