V1.6, Softmod, No Drive

Recommended Posts

OK
Here is the situation.

Just had a 1.6 PSU open up. I've got a 1.6 board from my first ever softmod. it has been rendered useless after i ended up unlocking the drive... not knowing what was going on.

So its sitting there.

i have an aladdin xt2 chip.

if i install that chip on this board will it just boot? curious on this procedure because anytime you hear about this type of situation (no eeprom) the answer always seems to be "need a mod chip or a tsop)

just curious of some thoughts on this. and how it might work.

Yes it is 100% posible that you fix it with a modchip , also remenber when installing a modchip on a 1.6 you have ro rebuild the lpc port

      Here is how to unlock an Xbox hard drive with a program called Hdat2.
      Software link: Please login or register to see this link.
      Software is in attachment also. It is a Boot able iso. 
      Instructions:  
      I've done a YouTube video showing how to unlock an Xbox hard disk with HDAT2 link here for the program Please login or register to see this link.

      This is a WIP, there may be some errors  I will try to update the videos and instructions over time  

      6th April edited YouTube video
      9th May 2017 v60b4, new YouTube Video and updated instructions

      Set up your PC with the Xbox hard disk as Master and the DVD drive as Slave.
      Set the BIOS to boot from DVD/CD first.
      When the program loads, be patient it takes a little while  
      Type "HDAT2" at the command prompt.
      Select the hard disk by using the cursor keys and pressing enter.
      Scroll down to "Security" press enter.
      Scroll down to "Unlock device" press enter.
      Then press "I" to change from User to Master.
      Pressing "K" will scroll through a list of built in passwords, if you're lucky it'll be one in the list.
      Xboxes are usually "XBOXSCENE" or "TEAMASSEMBLY" which are near the end of the built in password list.
      Press "S" to set and then "Y" to confirm.
      NOTE: You will only get 5 attempts, and then you will have to re-boot, and start again  
      You can also enter a password manually by pressing "P"
      Passwords can be entered in User mode, but you don't get the "K" option for the built in password list.

      If you have "zeroed" your hard drive password then 30 HEX is DECIMAL 0.
      Hopefully the video will show what I mean

      HDAT2 also has other useful hard drive tools to repair bad sectors, erase etc...
      Have a look at some of the other YouTube videos by other users

      I'm after a little help with this.
      Do you folks have a GOOD link to a Video on exactly how to install a 2TB drive reliably?
      I'm struggling to figure out the best reliable method on how to do this... Setting up partitions, with what apps etc..
      I installed a 500GB IDE in my xbox but it's been nothing but trouble. so I obviously didnt do it the correct way
      Any help, advice, links or even better for the forum, a post with details, application downloads and images for a walk through.
      Thanks very much in advance!!

      I just replaced the Laser and belt in a Thomson DVD drive and I am having trouble getting it back together properly.  The white tooth arm that raises and lowers the spindle does not want to cooperate when I am putting the tray back in.  I can get the try back in fine but the drive spindle is not raising and lowering.  Anyone know the correct procedure to get it back it?  It has to be some kind of alignment issue with that white arm.
