Frag XBox With Dead Hdd?

Recommended Posts

How would you go about replacing a hdd in a dead xbox? mod chips? I've been looking for a tutorial but I can't find anything. Also, everything on the xbox seems to work, so but the hdd is just freaking out with sound, so I assume its the hdd 1.0 btw.

I would solder a modchip to bypass the need of a locked drive.

Then creating a xbox hdd via xboxhdm.

So just soldering a mod chip will allow me to switch out the hard drive?

Yes it will do it, just order one preflashed :)

Rebuild hdd on console via hexen/slayers (like wikati mentioned) or on PC via xboxhdm.

Yes, but unless you are proficient in soldering electronic components, I would practice on something first..

ditto.

 

its not an easy install to rebuild lpc. some of us are fortunate to have a ton of mistakes behind us. alot of mistakes can be corrected, some cannot. destroying an xbox is always destroying an xbox. even a 10$ unit.... its one less functional xbox on this chunk of slag spinning around the sun

The hard drive just died on mine when I was testing a game that came with it. Now I can't boot at all to try modding this console.

EEPROM reader to obtain the data needed to lock a new HDD set up with XboxHDM.  PC with IDE if you use XboxHDM v1.9 or 2.2a or USB-to-HDD interface adapter with XboxHDM23USB Beta 2.

Or, install a modchip, Aladdin XT plus 2 (aka XT 4032, etc) boot Hexen 2017 or 2018 to format the new HDD and install the dashboard to it.

      UPDATE: The seller is sending me a replacement board. No longer required.
      Got sent a board from an eBay seller that is FRAGGING out of the box. Many loose capacitors and I fear more underlying problems.
      I need a v1.0 or v1.1 board, as all I have lying around are single ATX power supplies.
      TSOP flashed preferred, but if not, then EEPROM extracted, if possible.
      Please PM.
