Old Chameleon Chip - Wanted To Clone Old Hdd To a New One and Need a Little Help

Recommended Posts

Hi everybody, first time here in SO long. I've had a modded Xbox since 2003 which I just turned back on after I heard out about the clock capacitor problem. Mine was ok (I was able to remove it and clean up alright) but having it back on I've found the hard drive to be quite loud and maybe not running so great.

I wanted to replace the hard drive but I'm not sure if my old Chameleon modchip throws a wrench into the tutorials I've been looking at. If possible the method of hotswapping the DVD drive with the new HDD and cloning the original drive seems easiest. 

Any suggestions before I start fumbling through this are very much appreciated! And I have all the stats on my current setup if needed. Thanks so much for the help!!

Yeah look up Chimp. it's the tool you'll use for cloning. 
I would probably look into just backing up your data to your pc and ftp'ing it over to the new hdd. In actuality, this will be easiest since you won't have to read up on the chimp procedure and hope it works for you.
Also look into flashing your tsop. 
If you do this you won't need a modchip anymore. Also, if you ever want to sell the chameleon you have a buyer right here. :) I collect chips, and I don't have this one.

Only problem I think you may have is based on which version of modified BIOS you have flashed to the  Chameleon.  Do you know which is flashed to it?

Next, use the latest version of Chimp.  Please login or register to see this link.  is the latest version of Chimp to try.  Don't try any older versions.

I'm not sure how to find it. In XBMC it can't detect the modchip or the BIOS and I cannot remember for the life of me how to get into the BIOS.

Sorry for the late reply. I was expecting the site to email me about comments and then life happened and haven't gotten back here until today. Your idea about flashing the TSOP and then copying over from the old hard drive sounds good. If I do get the chameleon chip out of there I'll let you know!

If you start the stock MS dashboard go into System Info scroller at the end it shows the kernel - K: 1.00.KKKK.01 and dashboard - D: 1.00.DDDD.01 .  What value is KKKK and DDDD as it's there too?

Or, UnleashX shows the Kernel version in the System Info page - from the main menu press Y and look for it: 1.0.KKKK.1. Press B to return to the main menu.

Evoxdash with the appropriate skin selected will display the BIOS and Kernel versions too.

In the default dashboard it says K: 1.00.4977.01 and D: 1.00.5960.00. In evoxdash it says bios unknown and kernel 1.00.4977.01 if I go into the Flash BIOS menu it looks like I have X2_4977 available. That might be the last installed BIOS?

Yeah, the BIOS needs to be updated. I'm not sure 4977 has LBA48 support if not the max HDD size is 137GB 

The lastest 256KB X2 BIOS is 4983 and 512KB X2 BIOS is 5035.  There are also a few more compatible BIOS's that could be used on your modchip and console - EvoX M8plus, iND-BiOS 5003 or the Beta iND-BiOS Feb-11-05 (aka 5004) = all 256KB in size.

I'd download a copy of Please login or register to see this link. installer disc, extract and burn a copy to DVD-R. Boot the disc. It does take a minute before the menu appears so wait for it. Next, select the menu option to flash a BIOS to your modchip/TSOP.

      Hi.
      I have been stuck on this for a few days now.
      I have managed to softmod my 1.6 (broken IDE slowed me down but I finally got the HDD switch out to work).
      Now I'm trying to find out how to download Emulators and ROMs. I'm networked with my xbox on my old ThinkPad running WinXP. I can't find a FileZilla that works with WinXP. I found Stella for Atari 2600 but I can't figure out how to get it to unzip or not unzip and then transfer to the xbox. I've also downloaded River Raid ROM.
      I can see the folders... then I go to my Unleashed screen on Xbox and I see the files ONLY in FILE EXPLORER. I find the file for Stella and River Raid but then I push A and nothing happens. It just sits there.
      I'm frustrated. All the videos and tutorials SKIP the download and zip or unzip and just have the right file ready to transfer. Do I need an FTP? Or can I just use network connection?
      Do I use WinRAR to unzip both the Emu file and the ROM?
      Grrr.
      Any assistance is appreciated.

      Came across a beautiful selection of wiring diagrams for a bunch of commonly found mod chips. These images are in high-quality HD very easy to read can be downloaded and zoomed in to read perfectly. I am not the Creator of these pictures. The Creator is YouTube channel techno on top. This person normally does Xbox mods on YouTube. There's a video where he shows each of these pictures for 1 minute. I merely took a screenshot of each. Thought it would help out the community here. In any event I hope somebody could use these images. Please pass them around and enjoy
