XBox Boots Once, Freezes

Recommended Posts

Hi everyone,

i have an xbox with a strange issue. i soldered the tsop, one i had to do alternative soldering because the tin went of the 2 points. it boots once when the board doesnt have power for a while, then it freezes when loading hexen.

sometimes it doesnt even turn on, it powers on, beeps, powers off, beeps and red and green lights pulse. i didnt even flash it yet. could removing the clock cap cause this issue?

No, but the leaked electrolyte from it can damage the trace that carries the power button signal to the System Management Controller (PIC processor) that actively powers on/off the console.  If corroded too much, the damage prevents the console from powering on.

      Hello i just brought a Crystal Xbox and i need some help.
      I have been speaking to the guy who sold it to me, He knows nothing about modding but has been super helpful, He brought the xbox of his friend before him, But his friends got the xbox of someone else before that.
       
      What i need help with is distinguishing weather the Xbox that i have brought has a mod chip or not?
      He tells me when he turns on the Xbox an Evo x logo come up in the top left corner. He also says it is region free, and plays DVDs without the dvd add on.
      I asked for more detail and this is what he told me and this is all he knows.
       
      The seller.
      Ok I’ve checked and you need to hold the power button down to get the evo x logo to show. Holding down the eject button or just simply pressing the power button boots it to the xboxdashboard. So I’m guessing that it has the chip but the bios needs flashing by connecting to a pc. I don’t have a clue how to do that.
       
      I know nothing about Xbox modding at all.
      If i have brought a modded Xbox then i may need some advice, on stuff like
      How to flash a bios on it, What bios to use?
      I would want to replace the CD rom drive as he says it is sticky and upgrade the HDD so i can install games to the HDD
      My problems is that i know 0 about modding original Xboxes. But i have some technical background and i have modded previous consoles.
       
      Thank you! Sorry for my lack on knowledge on the subject.
      I also brought a USB Adaptor Cable Cord for Xbox (Original) So i can use a usb on the xbox if needed.
      He says the The manufacture date of console is 18/6/2004 as well.

      Hi all, just found this site and looks like a good resource for original Xbox modding. I started modding Xboxes way back not long after they first came out. I had an original V1.0 box with an Xecuter X3 chip, which I was stupid and eventually sold. I'm back in the game now with another X3 modded box and another one I'm soft modding and going to do a TSOP flash. Looks like some good resources here.
