G'day Guys, New Modder Wanting To Learn Tips

Recommended Posts

Hi there

I am new to modding Xboxes, i have watched a number of videos on the subject .

I plan to look through all the forum topics to guide me , my biggest hurdle is knowing what tools, leads and software to have so it makes the process easier.

I have four Xboxes, two have been soft modded by the previous owners (one has an extension kit with three HDD's internally and has an Akira 2 mod chip), one standard Xbox and one Pal Crystal Xbox version 1.5

I plan to TSOP all of them if possible. My soldier skills are good, i have installed mod chips in my PS2, and Gamecube. I have also modded my Dreamcast with an IDE Reborn and have an IDE drive in a custom built DC table top arcade.

Any help on where to look for info would be much appreciated

Crystal Xbox version 1.5

It's insane how many newbies keep claiming they have a 1.5 lately. It's a 1.4. No one has a 1.5.

TSOP flashing is definitely the way to go though. It's incredibly easy to do and there are numerous tutorials for it online.

Make sure you are removing your clock capacitors from any non-1.6 Xboxes too. Leaving them in means death for the Xbox.

Aren't all crystals 1.6? Do I remember wrong?

The vast majority of them are, yes, but a small number of the PAL ones are 1.4.

His could be either, but my mind just went to 1.4 because 1.4/1.5 are the same. He very well could have a 1.6 though and be claiming it's a 1.5. It's not like we all haven't seen that before.

Thanks for the links, here is a photo of my serial number along with the Focus chip. I broke the seals myself nearly two years ago when i first looked into modding the Xbox to put into my Kiosk. It could be a 1.4 like you guys are saying

For the softmodded ones, I would suggest downloading rocky5s softmodding disc. It can update olds softmods, and it's the best imo. Love the extended case, that's something you don't see every day.

Definitely upgrade to Rocky's softmod yes and null the HDD key afterwards. But you don't need to use his disc to upgrade. Just grab the Quick Upgrade tool from his GitHub/Google Drive and use that instead. Spare the DVD drive.

      Hi, just saying hello, I have my org xbox with xecutor chip working well for years and now i have Coinops 8 installed on it but have to access it using xbmc. Thought i was doing a smart thing by copying the default.xbe of coinops to the c: drive and renaming it  xboxdash.xbe but surprise surprise, locked out now. I have thankfully renamed the old xboxdash.xbe to a different name which i will try and rename once i can get into FTP again, (cant get in ). Ive used angry ip to find the ip address but i think im locked out. once i get permission i will use the hexen disc to give me FTP access and change back the way they were.
