- Aladdin XT FRAG
I am attempting to install a modchip for the first time. I have an aladdin XT clone from Aliexpress. The xbox is 1.4. I have a wire from bottom-side D0 to the top-side D0 pad on the chip. BT on the chip is wired to ground using the quick solder connector. The HD is stock with the standard xbox dashboard. Xbox was verified functional pre-modding. The only other mod is the removal of the clock capacitor. The console performs 3x boot attempts before FRAGing and eventually powering off. I used the LPC diagnostics page to verify my soldering. All eleven pins have continuity to the...
- Working on a cap list. Want your opinions
I’m working on a cap list for each revision set that people could refer to in the forum. Here’s what I have so far. Wanted your opinions. Is this needed? Should I add links to caps on mouser and digikey or just list preferred brands and let people find their own via the info provided? Any mistakes or omissions? Compiled info from a few different sources. I haven’t double checked against a 1.0 board yet so that’s always possible. Rough draft. One thought I had was specifying Radial on the others since I specified SMD where applicable. Just so it was clear to those who might not know when...

- OGXbox Installer 2021 (New Link)
OGXBox Installer 2021 Created by Sweetdarkdestiny THIS INSTALLER DISC ONLY WORKS FROM A BURNED DVD DISC, NOT MOUNTING THE DISC IMAGE SAVED TO THE HARD DRIVE Sweetdarkdestiny: "Why use this this instead of HeXEn/TruHeXEn or Slayers? Well, good question and here is the answer: It's faster than all of them. It doesn't have faulty bioses on it. It's up to date and it offers way, way more to install than any of the others. So you have plenty of Apps, Dashboards or Emulators to install and a huge amount of bug free bioses (ModChip and TSOP (incl. Winbond). It's a simple build...
- Is this Phillips DVD drive toast?
Hi all, first and foremost, as the season approaches I want to wish everyone a happy holidays! I bought a "for repair" 1.1 unit that needed a LOT of work. (This is a different unit than the Sharp TSOP unit from my other repair post.) Luckily I was able to repair everything except the Philips DVD drive. It was relatively clean - I cleaned the lens, replaced the drive belt and cleaned up a bit of corrosion on the board, but it's still dodgy. Question, can this Philips drive be saved? On startup there is a high-pitched whine from inside the dvd drive, and when I push the eject button,...
- How do I write a emulator for the original Xbox?
Hey guys, so anyways I just got nxdk setup already on my windows laptop, but I want to write an emulator for the Xbox badly but how do I go from there? What programming languages does nxdk support? Should I write a basic emulator just to learn sdl2 or port a existing emulator over?
- Help please
I've got an OLD xbox (1.5 or earlier) with an xecuter 2.6 ce running avalaunch, on a solderless xapt3r mount. But it's misbehaving. In a few ways. Loading has now become very hit or miss. With modchip turned off, it has stopped reading certain discs, getting progressively worse and I think it might be won't read at all now. With chip on, I am getting lots of frag boots - failing to boot, auto reset, fail, auto rest, red green flagging eject button. When it finally boots, it is taking a long time to load, and usually crashes. I'm suspecting that it's time to replace the...
- Question: Which Revision is Right For Me?
Hello to everyone in this forum, i am a new user here but a nearly lifelong fan of the OG Xbox, it was my first experience with a games console and it will always hold a place in my heart for that, but after having a few systems throughout my childhood, i thought i should seriously look into getting a system, one that will be the best fit for my needs, i know theres several different revisions but i'm thinking what i want my console for is probably very niche compared to most other users. So i'd feel like asking for my needs which revision is personally the best fit for me? So to start,...
- ORIGINS W/ ALADDIN XT PLUS 2
Hi all, New to this. I'm wanting to mod my xbox. Am I able to use the Aladdin XT Plus 2 and still install origins? Basically, are these compatible with each other? Or is there a different chip I should be looking at?

- Weird Softmod Issue
I have a console that a softmod was attempted on and for some reason failed. I happened to use the softmod installer included in the @sweetdarkdestiny TSOP tool. However, I have no reason to actually believe that there is any problem with it, since @Mittyoz had the same problem here: And used a different source for the softmod files. I feel that we may have used some odd, unlikely combination of files with the softmod installer or that there may be something up with our consoles in particular. Admittedly, Mitty did attempt to do a softmod and TSOP on top of each other, but his failure...
- Xecuter 2.3b lite Fragging on Boot
So separate to my Softmod in another thread, I also have an old Xecuter 2.3b lite which has sat in my toolbox for about 15 years or so. Physically it's in pristine condition. I have no idea what bios it should/might have on it, as it was removed from my old Xbox way back when after I got another (original Xenium) chip. I have the ground/D0 cable and a switch module. I'm not the worlds best solderer but I managed to use braid etc to remove the solder from the LPC holes on my v1.0 board, and solder in a 12 pin header. I don't have the cable for the switch module for this chip,...

- So what is the latest version or xSORR?
I have found three different versions. The one on EmuXtras is 5.0a and the one posted here and on gamebrew is 5.1f. But I for some reason have a v5.2 on my hdd since 2021. Don't even remember where I got that from. I tried the 5.1f version and it seems there's quite a lot of difference the startup intro for example isn't the pixel styled one but the handrawn one in 5.1f. Is it available on XBMC4Gamers Download section? I can't check becauee I don't have a way to connect my Xbox to the internet atm.

- XBOX ONE
Hello and greetings all. I know this is a OG XBox forum but I trust this website and the people on it. I've been given an XBox One free. It has a small power issue with the heat-sink and not turning on. (FIXED) I want to push this device as far as I can go. Hard mod the device, soft mod the OS. I have no concern if I brick the console, I want to strip it down and max-out anything I can on it. Any reliable trusted information will be much appreciated Thank you.
- Samsung DVD drive "Busy" Fault
I'm posting this here as I am at the end of my rope with trying to diagnose this issue. I have 23 original Xbox's and this fault ONLY happens on hard modded systems that have the Samsung DVD drive (both the SDG-605B and SDG-605F). I will give a little information first on the type of hard mods I performed to each of the systems(they are all identical). modchip: Xblast Jafar/Aladdin ide wire: 40 pin 80 wire 24" long ide to sata: startech adapter(set to master) hdd: 3tb wd red pro or 4tb hgst ultrastar RAM: stock 64mb(1.6 models and 2 1.4s) or 128mb upgrade(all other...
- Stuffed up TSOP/Softmod
So I've made a mistake (kicking myself now, but anyway, what's done is done). So I softmodded using Agent Under Fire which worked beautifully. I then downloaded Evox andn put it in the Apps folder on E and, stupidly flashed M7 BIOS to TSOP (which I had bridged the solder points). This worked. However, now, when box boots I just get a black screen with an orange ring. Googling this it seems this is because it's look for Evox and can't find it (it's not installed properly). From what I'm reading this might also be due to the box being both TSOP'd and softmodded at the same time? The...
- Adding Artwork to a folder of Shortcuts?
So two months ago I was really enjoying playing doom on my Xbox via Odamex and found out that it can also directly be run through the use of shortcuts. So I made some shortcuts for the wads that I wanted to play and put them in a folder. When I tried to add artwork (_resources) to it they don't show up at the hombrew screen but inside of the folder (also it doesn't show the name of the folder) : Now I don't think this is supported but I wanted to know if there's a way to pull it off. Xbmc probably requires a default.xbe inside the folder for it...

- PowerA controller need replacement micro USB port
Hi, I recently bought four xbox one controllers not tested for repair them, I had very good surprises in the lot, only one needs micro soldering to be repaired, except that the problem comes that controllers are not 100% official (both brands appear have permissions from Microsoft to manufacture and sell controllers), the controller in question is a PowerA and I have to change the micro USB port except that I can't find a replacement micro USB port on the net and no one seems to have documented this subject, I wanted to know if one of you had already changed a micro USB port of a PowerA...
- It worked before I cleaned it
Ok, I've never seen this before, and I'm hoping some of you awesome mad scientists might have a solution. I bought a v1.1 in decent condition hoping that I could do the necessary maintenance and use the guts in my X3 project. Got it home, turned it on and it worked...well enough that I was able to softmod it. Today, I opened it up to work on it and it was caked in dust (I've seen cleaner attics). Cleaned it thoroughly, removed the clock cap (neutralized and cleaned the small amount of leakage), cleaned the DVD drive, bridged the two TSOP points, installed an X3 pin header and...
- Xblast aladdin mod help
Hello, i’ve been wanting to do the xblast Aladdin mod for some time now. However i’ve heard that there are different variations of the Aladdin XT +2 chip, one with a transistor near the lattice chip. And one without it. The transistor one also has a more complex PCB design. Sadly all of my Aladdins have the transistor near the lattice chip. I heard that the ones with the transistor don’t work properly after flashing the replacement CPLD code. I don’t want to brick my chips so i want some help on the topic. Also if i brick my chip, can i somehow unbrick it? I mean the lattice chip that...
