  • New To Modding, Need a Little Help.
    I'm new to modding and basically have near zero computer knowledge. I downloaded and unpacked Eartwormjames's 212 pack and I'm a little lost on where to put everything. I'm running the Rocky5 emustation and have a few roms sets running, but the 212 pack is giving me a headache. I'm using filezilla and have moved the roms from the roms folder to the n64 roms folder on my xbox, they are recognized but I get black screen when trying to launch a game. I'm assuming the surreal6.0 needs placed somewhere, or that maybe the 212 pack needs placed somewhere as a whole? Any...
  • Sata Hdd Upgrade Jumper Pin Question
    I can’t seem to find a clear answer anywhere. Do I remove the jumper pin from the sata HDD since the sata/ide adaptor has its own jumper pin selections? I just need to know the configuration so I can clone it using chimp. Any help would be appreciated thanks!
  • Emulator Icons
    So I've been searching around for good emulator/folder icons for my Xboxes. I ran into a thread on this site with a google drive by xbmcmodsforxbox loaded with great artwork. It didn't quite have all the systems I needed so I thought I'd share with the community what I found and made for it. It's a really nice looking icon pack. Hopefully someone else here will enjoy it as well. I added a couple ones I edited for CoinOps, Ninja, and separating Xbox games alphabetically. All credit goes to xbmcmodsforxbox for the google drive, Dom DXecutioner, and the community that made all...
  • Prototype/Unreleased Controllers? Help
    So i recently bought these two controllers from a man in singapore, he said he used to work for microsoft back in the day and even recieved a launch team edition xbox for working there. I saw he had these two controllers and decided to buy them. I would like help in identifying what they are and if they are prototype controllers or rare unreleased versions. I dont believe they are custom controllers though given the stickers on the back.
  • Og XBox V1.1 With XBit (Evox 3.6)
    Hi all, I just bought an OG Xbox v1.1 with Xbit modchip (Evox 3.6 bios is loaded). I still have to open it up for cleaning and checking if the clock capacitor is still in place. Up until now, I had only softmodded my other Xbox. So, what should I do to this one? Can I update the modchip's bios with Hexen Tools, or should I use the old updater tool for Xbit? I guess I could still update the dashboard using Hexen tools, right? I'd really appreciate your help!
  • Wireless Controllers
    Hi there, back in the day, I was using wireless controllers from Joytech. They were pretty neat! But currently, where can one find wireless controllers for our beloved OG Xbox? I can't find anything from Joytech (don't know if the brand still exists) or others.

  • Newly Modded XBox
    Hello all, just got my xbox modded with a 2tb drive and Rocky5's Emustation, looking for some assistance. Most of my roms are running well so far with the exception of N64. Now I know that it is set up to run the N64 set from Earthworm James. Trouble is, I cant find that pack anywhere at all, been searching for days now. I was wondering if anyone here knows where it is or has a link available, any assistance would be greatly appreciated.

  • Suspected Hdd Failure
    Hi, Just fired up my xbox after being sat there for many months. It made a pop type sound and after 10 minutes of play started to make a beeping noise with error 7. I've pulled the hdd out and it makes the same beeping noise in an external caddy. I've done a little bit of research and it seems that if I use an old ata hdd (40gb) I can use something called Hexen to build the drive. As I have an xecuter chip I don't need to worry about locking the drive. Can somebody please advise if this is correct? Thank you
  • Help With Bios Flash
    Well if someone has asked this question, I can't find it. I have a V1.2, non-chipped XBOX. Was wondering if the EVOX M8+ bios found on Hexen 2018 disc will work for a 2 Terabyte drive? Anybody else got any more suggestions? Thanks
  • N64 Freaks Internal Hdmi Mod Install
    This HDMI mod replaces the AV port completely and offers an HDMI port instead for convenience. The Installed HDMI mod does look like this: The HDMI mod does offer 5.1 sound through the HDMI port. If you don't need 5.1 (or your TV might not support it) you can simply disable 5.1 audio and get digital stereo audio instead. For those who want to add an optical output to there Xbox the HDMI mod does offer 3 solder points to add a TOTX178 optical transmitter. To get the HDMI mod installed you first need to get the AV-port removed. To get it removed you could either use a...

  • Do I Have the 1.5 Version?
    So I bought this xbox from my local pawn shop when i saw it come in for 45 bucks. I know there are better deals out there but this one looked clean and the stickers no the bottom where intact. Knowing the system hadn't been opened the first thing i did when I got home other than test the system (and relive halo 2 for a little while) was pull the case off to prep for the clock capacitor removal. For giggles and farts when I saw the focus chip above the cpu heatsink i tested the resistance on the ground port from the LPC bus and found what i'd like to think is a good condition 1.5v...
  • Diy XBox AtX Adapter Pcbs
    Decided to post about my ATX to Xbox adapters as i've been contacted about them a couple times now. I won't build more of them in the future as it's quite a time consuming process but you can order the PCBs and build them yourself. The bill of materials is printed on the bottom layer and assembly is pretty straight forward too. The solder work isn't hard to do so even a beginner is able to get it done! You can order the PCBs here: Rev1.0-Rev1.1 Rev1.2-Rev1.5 The ATX Port and Cables can be reused from a dead (or unused) Xbox PSU and...

  • Flashing Tsop When Hard Modded With Aladdin X2
    Hey all. i hope you can help. My 'Project Xbox' (V1.4) which i generally tinker with has an Aladdin X2 running IND bios. All my other Xbox's are either soft modded or have Xceuter 2 installed. I've never tsop'd a console and was thinking that i should give it a go and move the Aladdin X2 off too one of my 1.6's that has been soft modded. Can i boot to dash, pull the chip and then flash the tsop? Assume i have already bridged the 1.4 mobo ready for a tsop flash? ( This box, like all my others has a failed DVD that doesn't read discs. so need to do all this...
  • Serial Usb Adapter for Debugging
    This might interest those that want to turn their retail/debug Xbox into a fully-functioning development kit without having to spend $500+ on one. It works on any version 1.0 through 1.2 motherboard and can be great for troubleshooting crashes of all kinds without requiring the use of XDK software. I'm selling pre-made units for $30 plus shipping and would also like to get a feel for how many might want one in Europe so I can bulk-ship to a distributor to help save some on shipping costs as it's usually around $15 USD to ship from the US otherwise. Everything is fully open-source...
