Feels Good To Rock Og.

Recommended Posts

Hello everybody, 

  I am new to the Xbox modding community, but I figured I’d learn what I’m doing. I bought the OGX the first day it came out, and I’ve had the same console ever since. It followed me through my middle, high school, the military and multiple countries. Over the 18 or so years I’ve had it, she’s gained some memories and a lot of saves. Some of the saves are ghosts in racing games from buddies who aren’t around anymore, the final save before a boss fight on a game the platoon had played for hundreds of hours, just a lot of nostalgia and good vibes I’d rather not loose. I’ve been hearing a lot about this community, and you all seem to know your stuff! I would ultimately like to back up my HDD so when she takes a dump, I still have all the game saves over the almost 2 decades I’ve had on here. That’s number one goal. Number 2 is to soft mod it and learn what I’m doing so I can eventually make an awesome cutsom xbox that does it all. I am new to all this, so please don’t crucify me lol. Also, what does FTP mean?

(I feel I just asked the newbiest question of all, IJGSI)

Go ahead and softmod the Xbox first.  Then you will be able to FTP into the Xbox and copy all the saves to your computer for backup.  FTP is a method of networking into your Xbox, or many other types of computer systems, from your computer.  You need an FTP program, I prefer Filezilla.  Once the Xbox is softmodded and plugged into your network it will have it's own IP address just like every other device on the network.  You open your FTP program and connect to the IP address of the Xbox and it will open up a listing of the Xbox's hard drive where you will be able to upload and download files on it.  You should also go ahead and open the Xbox and determine what model it is, if it is below a 1.6 model you need to remove the clock capacitor to prolong it's life.  It sounds like a lot of information all at once but there are plenty of tutorials to help you out and we are always happy to help with any questions you have.

I really appreciate an in depth reply, especially this quick. I’m going to get all the software needed downloaded after work, Im still waiting on my Xbox-female USB connector to come in today and I’ll tackle softmod this weekend. Seriously though, thank you. Lol

You are welcome.  I have been modding Xboxes since they were released.  I just did three of them this week.  I know quite a bit but there are many others here that have crazy amounts of knowledge.  You will always be able to find any help you might need here.

FTP - File Transfer Protocol

An Internet standard developed to transfer files between a server and client computer across a network be it on a local area network (LAN)  a few feet away or via the Internet to a site 1000's of miles away.

bunnie, is that you?

Haha, no.  I think he was a true genius though.  He figured out stuff that made the Xbox the moddable beast it is today.  While he was de-lidding chips and mapping out the LPC I was just doing case mods at the time.  I didn't start really modding the system itself until the earliest mod chips were released.  I remember when upgrading to a 40gb hard drive was a big deal, lol.

      Hello World
      Let's discuss about Linux on Xbox Original, and what is it good for? I've read people use it to browse the internet and even watch Youtube throught a special distributive of Mozilla. Can anyone confirm launching Linux ports of Windows games on XDSL, and which ones? Counter Strike port for Linux would be awesome, never tried that, but found a port of 1.4 or 1.5 on the web. Maybe anyone kept a website on Xbox, by using it as server?
      What I was most impressed of, is the posibility of running a cluster of Xbox-es, tried that few years ago, but the update links for that distro were all dead, hope somebody has an image of a Linux distributive with everything set up or maybe can point on how to fully install everything in 2018. Do I understand correctly. that the cluster's power is all node's powers summarized, for example as the picture shows , is 12 x 733 mhz = 8796mhz?
