- Only Powers Up Via Eject Button
I have an xbox 1.4 I just TSOPed. For some reason the press the power button and nothing happens but if I press the eject button it turns On and Off. If I press it 5x it will stay On. I swapped power/eject boards but same issues. Any suggestions? Thanks in advance.
- To Fan or Not To Fan
I just read in Huang's "Hacking the Xbox" a warning that the fanless heatsinks are prone to overheating if operated without the disk drives installed over the motherboard. I was just about to replace my 1.0 GPU heatsink (with the fan) with the later, fanless, one with the idea that I'd reduce the noise. But now I'm having second thoughts, as I will not be replacing the disk drives over the motherboard. Can anyone offer me some sage advice on whether or not i should keep the 1.0 heatsink? I may end up shaving ~1" off the top for a slim build. Would this eliminate the potential risk...

- Question About a Yellow Eject Led
it's a v1.4 hard modded xbox. i had sonic heroes on pause for several hours while i watched tv and did other things(in other words, i was not watching the xbox screen to see if it shot an error code or something). i have the xbox sitting behind my tv so i don't see everything that it does. i looked behind the tv and a saw the the eject led had turned yellow. i shut the xbox off immediately because i feared it was overheating so i didn't look on the tv to see if it was displaying an error code. anyway, what causes the yellow led? btw, it was a solid yellow led, not flashing.
- Issue With Cheapmod Chip
So I bought a cheapmod from ebay to try something different on a 1.6. Soldered in the rebuild board and installed the chip, adding the one wire from the lower LFRAM via to pin 3 on the LPC header. Won't boot from chip, and on top of that, installing the chip causes the LFRAM cut I made to then have continuity thus booting the stock TSOP chip. I would think I screwed something up but I slapped my openxenium chip I have in my parts drawer and it works fine. I've been looking at diagrams for 2 days now and can't figure it out. Does Pin 4 need removed from the pin header I soldered in?...
- Tru3heXEn Pro 2021 Light - Beta
Hey everyone, as we all know, the TruHeXEn 2020 has some more or less issues (Boot time, faulty bios files ect.). So i grabbed the ISO and have made my own. I have made new working Evo-X bios files. Added a lot of apps and tools. Put some PC apps and PDF files for startes in the goodies folder and i have edited all configs to make them even (for example network settings ect.). Now it's a nice installer / rescue boot dvd for the xbox. IMO! So they suits me very well and maybe you too. So i decided to give all of you guys the "chance" to test it if you want. It's the 2th Beta but the...
- Display Side Boxes
55inch visio running thru a Yamaha TSR-7850 is the setup, i just swapped out the head unit as the old yamaha was having issues where the sound would simply cut out and never come back now heres the deal, the xbox is running xbmc4gamers, the gui and all interfaces are displaying at 100% full screen , however the games so far everything ive tested looks "squished" and has "side boxes", ALL settings are set at 720@16,9@widescreen, yet im still getting the side boxes, im not so sure i had this issue with the previous head unit and if it wasnt such a massive PITA to swap them out i...

- XBox Reboots Constantly After Ram Upgrade Attempt. Led Doesn't Usually Light Up.
So i tried to upgrade my 1.1 xbox to 128mb. I installed the first chip successfully and xblastOS flashed to TSOP said "Success". Then i attempted to install second chip on bottom side, but xbox started fragging. I fixed up some shorts i found, but it still fragged. Then i measured according to datasheet, that power to RAM is shorted to ground. The shorted pins most likely were: 66 and 65. However it's possible, that i used the chip pinout wrongly and i measured short between VDD and VDDQ, which should be fine. Even after fixing the shorts, it still fragged. After (destructively,...
- Ram Chips - Testing
Does anybody know if there's an easy way of testing if RAM chips are not fake (before installing/soldering)? Perhaps a resistance between certain PINs..? Any ideas?
- Kernel Versions.
Does anybody know what kernels were used in various "hacked" bioses...? Eg. X2 4981 or iND-BiOS 5003 Looking at this page: https://xboxdevwiki.net/Hardware_Revisions 4981 or 5003 were... not released? Have the teams behind X2 and iND used their own versioning schemes or did they use some sort of development/beta/debug bioses...? Anyway - perhaps somebody knows what kernels the X2 4981 and iND 5003 use?
- Hdd Locking/Unlocking - Chimp 261812
For the first time I'm using a Seagate 2.5" IDE HDD (80GB). I'd decided to use it in my newly Aladdin chipped Xbox principally because I discovered it could not be locked (as Slave) after I'd successfully used Chimp 261812 to clone a softmodded HDD to it. Retried and Chimp kept on reporting the drive could not be locked and indeed after I'd changed it to Master I had error 5 on that Xbox. Once the other, Aladdin chipped, Xbox was up and working I fitted that same unlocked 2.5" HDD and used an AID disc to install a chipped UnleashX dash. Everything works fine One of the things...
- Blocky and Freezing Picture
Softmod. 64mb xbox. I originally thought it was cheap component cables. Replaced, didn't work. Thought bad component connectors, switched televisions. Still didn't work. I haven't found any pattern yet. Has this happened to anyone else? The blockiness/stuttering will start happening in a game or emulator, then keep happening even upon restart on the menu. Any tips? Thanks!
- Blank Screen After Boot
Greetings! I used the evox_m8+67-NO-DVD.bin bios to flash my xbox and now when I boot there's a blank screen and the dvd drive light is orange. What to do to fix that? I have a version 1.0 xbox. Thank for any assistance.
- Modchip Vs Softmod
Hello all. I'm a new member of the forum and I have been playing around with the OG XBOx for a couple of years now. I never owned an XBOX before so my knowledge of the history is relatively limited. I do enjoy the versatility of the original XBOX, and I am amazed by the huge community and custom stuff that exists out there. Some of the machines I acquire (~40%) come with the modchip installed, but still have the original HDD. In the past, I removed the modchip because I could not find any info about it, and proceeded with a softmod, disk upgrade and so on. However, after I...

- Aladdin Custom Bios Flash
Really just double checking I've done everything correctly before going ahead with the flash on an Aladdin XT Plus2 in a v1.2/1.3 Xbox. It is an edited version of TruHeXEn's evox.m8plus.f.c.137.nodvd.bin. Changed the Xbox logo etc to match the Aladdin red chip theme, might modify this later if it doesn't look good. Also thinking about designing and importing another EvoX logo - details on how to do that are included wit the EVTool but if anyone has any additional information on this please share. Major changes are the boot priority: C:\evoxdash.xbe is default but I've...

So I’ve got an Xbox 1.0 that was opened before me when I got it. It flashes red and green after 3 reboots and I get no video please help!! 3 reboots and no video. I’ve changed a couple caps near the clock cap hoping it would be that but no luck. I removed clock capacitor cleaned the whole board with ipa and tested it and still no luck.

- Replacement Controller Parts
xbox controllers are made in an annoying way so that the buttons are not easily fixed when the they stop registering. i don't know the terms here so i'm going to describe what i'm trying ask as best possible. i'm also really tired and my brain is about half asleep. anyway, the pcb has something similar to black tape with the little black pads under it instead of having the black pads on the rubber thing itself(the rubber piece that goes under the buttons). so it is very difficult to replace that tape thing when buttons presses stop registering. has anyone made a modified rubber thing with...
