  • Open Xenium modchip on 1.0 red LED
    Hey all, I recently ordered a 1.0 motherboard and hdd off of ebay and went to mod it. Before modding, I booted them up and found them to be working properly. The clock cap was leaking bad so I replaced that. I soldered up the pin header to the LPC, connected a wire to the D0 pad and routed that to the Open Xenium I have, and went to boot it up. I'm greeted with a solid red LED on the modchip, and the xbox booting up into the normal bios. Attempting to boot into XeniumOS by pressing the eject button yields the same results. This modchip did originally come out of a 1.6, flashed with...
  • Tampered with dashboard and failed. Help please
    Hello, so i bought a modded xbox off someone and instantly started messing. I booted up rocky5s dashboard and liked it, i followed a guide to get it to boot into rocky5s dashboard on start up but i clearly did something wrong and replaced the wrong file as it reset and then im stuck on a bootup loop. It goes as far as saying evox in the top left and then resets so i have no time to get into ftp and restore what i did. Could anyone advise me what to do please. As i said i bought if off someone so i didnt mod it myself Thanks
  • Xbox 1.2, FRAG, failed RAM upgrade.
    Hello. I wanted to upgrade RAM on my Xbox. First I TSOPed Cromwell inside and it booted. Then I soldered 4 RAM chips from China and Xbox started reboots and showed errors: Green, Green, Green50%-Red50%. After which I desoldered new RAM, but FRAG was still there. I guessed something was wrong with TSOP chip. When I got this Xbox it had some noname modchip from 2003 which I can't even guess clone what of. Anyway, error code switched to: Green, Green, Orange50%-Red50%. Which is RAM error, I guess. Now I think I should have tested it with each new RAM chip soldered. I only...
  • XBMC4GAMERS - Wont Start
    Hey Guys, Long time lurker, first time poster. Am having some issues getting XBMC4GAMERS to start on my 1.1.8 Rocky5 softmodded Xbox. When I launch the default.xbe it just bounces me straight back to the Rocky5 dashboard, I dont even get as far as the XBMC4Gamers splash screen. Other apps (Enigmah, XBPartitioner, even XBMC4XBOX) run fine, as do games from the G drive. For background I am using a 1TB WD Green HDD, Sata/IDE converter with an 80 wire IDE cable, I have another softmodded Xbox which I have moved the HDD into and the same issue occurs here too. What's really...
  • Tru3HeXEn 2021
    Here for all of you a new version of HeXEn / TruHeXEn called Tru3HeXEn 2021. It is basicly TruHeXEn2020 without bugs (which I luckly FINALY was able to find and fix) and some changes. I added XBMC-Emustation and XBMC4Gamers to it (made it switchable for TSOP/CHIP/SOFTMOD) added UiX Lite, updated apps and dashboards, splitted the configs into softmod and tsop/chip, fixed the bios files, added more apps cleaned a hole lot of crap up, fixed more, made the ini & configs looking clean like they should, closed tags, made it a cleanby default installer, added a new BFM Bios, switched the...

  • softmod HDD to TSOP unit swap sanity check
    Hello All, Long time listener, first time caller here. I have never modded an XBOX before, but looks like a fun project and I wanted to run my plan by the gurus on this forum to avoid any potential pitfalls (i.e. destroying the data on the original HDD doing something stupid being a newbie) after watching a ton of YouTube videos on the subject. I have an OG XBOX v1.6 that was modded and setup around 6-7 years ago. The motherboard died and I am looking to swap that drive into a new system and upgrade it to an unlocked SATA HDD (I don't want to have to deal with locked HDDs...
  • Softmodded and upgraded the HDD on my first ever xbox.. now what?
    I've softmodded my first xbox and I upgraded the HDD and I've heard about the wonders of Emulators, Homebrew ect ect, now I'm wondering where do I download emulators lets say for the N64 or Sega Genesis? All help is appreciated.
  • Softmodding uninstall fail
    I apologize if this topic is already been talked about but anyways I was downloading some dashboard files during a softmod dashboard uninstall then the powers got cut and now it's throwing up a error 13 or 14. I've heard Hexen can be used to fix this but I'm not sure. Thanks.
  • Which Xenium Chip?
    Thinking of doing another chip, probably on a v1.6, and I was wondering which is the best way to go rather than using an Aladdin. There's Open Xenium Ice White/Gold/Sunset Red with v1.6 LPC rebuild board included available in the UK but there are also some interesting looking XeniumICE bundles I'd have to import from Aus. But even with shipping costs its not prohibitively expensive, in comparison. Opinions or other suggested options?
  • XBMC-Emustation Will Not Display BoxArt
    I’m having an issue with the box failing to showing up for my emulators. I have my view mode set to detailed and the art I downloaded came straight from the XBMC downloader. I even checked to see if the files were downloaded into the correct directory. I’m really stumped on this one. I feel like I’m definitely missing something and I can’t seem to find any solutions online. If you guys got any advice or potential solutions it would be very much appreciated.
  • how to unlock hdd without eeprom backup?
    long story short, ages ago I softmodded a 1.1 machine and naturally locked the drive after upgrading it. shortly after I tsoped it though, and zeroed and password- without backing the original or unlocking the drive. I tried chimp261812 and neither master password (XBOXSCENE and TEAMASSEMBLY) worked. the master password *should* be a string of 32 T (it's a samsung drive) but chimp won't let me input a different master password. there's the hddkey.txt option but it only accepts 16 bytes of hexadecimal characters, unless I'm missing something it's not related to the master password....
  • Xecuter X3 BIOS Bank Switch Sticker + Xecuter XLCD (UK)
    I'm looking for a replacement sticker for the X3 BIOS bank selection switch or a replacement switch if anyone has one spare in the UK? I am also looking for an Xecuter XLCD kit to complete my X3 install (this isn't a huge loss if I can't buy one and I don't mind going down the DIY route for this if nobody has one they want to sell - I've had some great advice from the XBOX-SCENE guys regarding what parts to buy). Please let me know if you can help. Thanks.
  • Modified XBox done in 2003-2004
    Modified XBox done in 2003-2004. I had my XBox modified in 2003-2004 with a new hard drive and fan installed that allowed me to play every game made up to that time from Nintendo,Sega, so on and so on. Trying to get it back up and running but it’s still doing the same thing it started to do back in 2006. I have a separate circuit and toggle switch on the outside that would allow me to play regular Xbox games and then I would turn on the toggle switch to play off the added hard drive. Now all it does is power on and off before just turning the on button red! Anybody remember...

  • Boot to second dashboard.
    Hi guys. Long time since I've fiddled with any thing xbox related. Chipped my crystal 1.6 today that I've had in the cupboard for the last 15 years basically just to enable hd resolutions. When I was massively into the scene I seem to remember you could boot to a second dashboard via pressing a button on the controller during boot up. I only really used x2 or x3 chips back in the day so I can't remember if that was a feature of those chips/BIOS. Is that possible with the evoxm8 bios, I'd like it to boot to the standard ms dash as standard, but have the ability to...

  • Bios reflash
    Hi Everyone, I am new to this forum and despite looking, I couldn't find an answer to my question. Basically, I have an Xbox v1.1 with an ST TSOP. Awhile back I TSOP flashed it using HEXEN 2018 and I flashed on the EvoX M8 + F & G Bios. After this I installed a 2TB Sata HDD and Set up the HDD with 1TB assigned to F and 1TB assigned to G. Over time I have filled up most of the F partition and a lot of the G partition. I want to reflash a customised version of M8 + with no evox logo and my own boot colour scheme but I am worried about some of the options (I am basing the new...
  • Extremely slow boot, disc drive related!?
    Hi Guys, I'm trying to fix an xbox which takes about 5minutes to boot. It is a softmoded V1.6 and I swapped its dvd driver from a Samsung (which I need for my main xbox) to a Philips (very temperamental and reads just some original games). I don't know why but the slow boot is related to the dvd drive, as it boots in a flash when connected to his original dvd drive. Anything I can do to solve the issue keeping the Philips drive? Thanks a lot!
  • Slow ftp speeds to xboxs but not from
    DHCP, PC and Xbox are wired ethernet. All devices in the same room. Basically one day it was fine and the next it wasn't. Its so strange. When I ftp to any xbox from my PC, it maxes out around 1mb on FlashFXP. I have tried from Linux using a different client. Also tried 3 different windows clients. I changed out modems and ethernet NIC. If I setup an FTP from one xbox to another, the speeds between them are great/normal like 11mb. I can take files FROM the xboxs to my PC at the same speed. This is not simply just a 1 xbox issue if you cant tell. Any xbox I hook up, same shit happens. I tried...
  • Cannot get CoD: Finest Hour to load
    I switched over to the Rocky5 Xbox Softmodding Tool last year, and haven't had issues until now. I cannot get Call of Duty: Finest Hour to run. I tried my HDD Ready archive via FTP, then I tried the original game disc, and lastly I tried copying said disc to the HDD. I also deleted the UData/TData folder 4156002A. The game just freezes on the softmod loading screen for it. This is a v1.6 console.
  • Corrupted Artwork and Games after a copy, I become a goat!
    Hello everyone, I have a little problem with a softmoded Xbox with an Ndure, XBMC4Gamers main dashboard, Unleash alternative dashboard and equipped with a 500 GB hard drive. The console has about 80 working games on F and G partitions. The problem is that some get corrupted when I try to put others on the hard drive. The home artwork disappears and sometimes I can no longer launch the game. I noticed that some files were getting corrupted. The copied games do not launch or I have an "unreadable disc" message... I have tried various things but have not been able to resolve this issue. I...
  • SLOT 1 cpu into og xbox?
    Do I understand correctly that the processor in og xbox is the same as the BGA part of the slot 1 cpu? If so, using a soldering station, we can, for example, change cpu to a full P3-733mhz 256kb. On a pc, replacing the cache from 128kb to 256 gives an increase in games of 15-30% (if we compare celeron 800/128/100 and p3 800/256/100). Such upgrade does not create speed problems in games. Am i wrong?
  • What is the practical use of a BFM bios?
    So I recently learned a valuable lesson about TSOP flashing when I flashed my 1.0 with iND-BiOS.Beta.Feb-11-05.67.bfm.bin rather than the non-BFM version of the bios. I was wondering what the practical purpose of the BFM (Boot from Media) bios is, and how one would even use it? I'm assuming it is a BIOS that something can load AFTER the Xbox as already booted and initialized all hardware?
  • D0 pad torn from 1.0 Xbox
    Hey all. Sorry if this has been posted, but I searched and couldn't really find anything. I have a 1.0 Xbox that was handed to me by a friend. He said he couldn't remember much about it, but that him and his kid tried to mod it a long time ago, and now it isn't working. Upon opening it, I found a pin header, no modchip, tsop points soldered, and the underside D0 pad ripped off. When I try to start the xbox, it cycles power 3 times then frags out. I'm assuming this is due mainly to the ripped D0 trace. I've tried repairing the trace, and bridging the two pads connected by the green...
