My Old Pir8 Krew Softmod Tutorial From 2006, and a Slew of Rare Tools!

Recommended Posts

Hello all! here is my Softmod Tutorial...!

Originally made in 2006, uploaded to torrents, updated and reborn in 2018 as an OGXbox.com Exclusive!
anywhore... its written in an easy to follow "noob-blog-style" just in case you are wondering why its so lame...

UPDATING FILES FOR DOWNLOAD!!
 

also additionally here are some essential xbox tools for modding/softmodding that are extremely hard to find these days due to most xbox scene sites and forums being dead. I have had them for over 12 years on a unused backup drive.

UPDATING FILES FOR DOWNLOAD!!

 

As always all files have been scanned for security threats by VirusTotal.com to rule out any contamination, with the exception of one false-positive in "Xplorer360 v0.9 Beta 6.zip".

** Keep in mind that these tools were made on and for xp/7 32bit windows, they may or may not work or work properly on 32 or 64 bit win 7/8/10, I recommend win xp/7 32bit virtual installation via VMware or virtualbox.

Enjoy!

Sentence like this without a link always makes me curious. Therefore I uploaded zip's to virus total for you. (It support archives)

Those have got to be false positives I have no red flags on my end, And I made that statement because they are executable files and people are always curious about those

Yes, I did originally scan the files, but the scanner I used said they were clean, my mistake, no real viruses that are any threat to anyone, just bugs, will fix and repost...

you might want to bring it to Mr. Mario's attention, in his video tut (below) he is using a software pack from xbox-hq.com (which was my mistake as well), as that's where the files came from that were virused even in my files from 12 years ago, he tells you to go download "Softmod.Installer.Deluxe.v5.12.Final.Xbox-Hq.zip" from a link and the package has an archive called " Xplorer360.beta6.zip" that scans infected from VirusTotal that contains "W32.eHeur.Malware14" and "Win.Worm.Bybz-204" the other files contained within the archive are all clean.

** UPDATE ** found another copy of Xplorer360 and it only lists "WinWorm.Bybz-204" which i have reported as a false-positive as AegisLab is the only one reporting it.

that Xplorer360.beta6 file I have has the same detection. Its just Bkav and ClamAV, so I think its fine..Just false positive here, nothing to worry..

I only went this route because pata drives are smaller and now older by this point, max was what 500gb at what 5400 maybe 7200 rpm... the converter works, I get to throw newer and larger (1TB) in it... you do what you feel is best...

AFAIK IDE HDDs are out of production for a long time now. Someday they will get more rare & expensive.

Sata HDDs are so cheap these days, 30-40$ for a brand new 1TB drive.

      hi everyone , have just back into original xbox again ,modded my first xbox last week all going well so far.

      Hi All

      My user name SS_Dave reflects the car I had at the time I was thinking of a nick name and my name.

      I have been doing basic repairs and mods to the original Xbox's since their release and at one stage I would get at least 1 or 2 Xbox’s a week to be modded and or upgraded HDD fitted in my spare room.

      I would get machine’s that owners had tried to mod to get going as a lot of other modders would not touch a already opened box  and I would have a 95% success rate of getting it running again. I did get a lot of untouched boxes as well. I also used to keep some Hdd's in stock (In the beginning 120gig was the most common due to the cost) for upgrades as well the owner didn’t have to wait for a delivery from interstate computer parts suppliers.

      Dr Google lead me here while looking for Xbox info and I hope to be able to help others in their quest to get there original Xbox's up and running.


       
      Cheers

      SS_Dave
