  1. Today
  2. Don't worry about the 1.5 links Link the BT on the mod chip to ground (Pin 2) and also like the D0 to ground, Doing this will make the chip always active. Like this. I highly recommend you use the alternative D0 point on the bottom of the board as it's easier to solder to. A ground point is the screw hole or pin 2.

  3. QQ, I have what I believe a 1.4 with a bad tsop flash. Going to fit an Aladdin.# I only have to solder a wire from D0 to Ground right? Unless its a 1.5 then there's 2 more wires? Chip will be always on
  4. Yesterday
  5. Have you replaced the Caps next to the heat sink? Cheers SS Dave Soft modding is like masturbating, It gets the job done but it's nothing like the real thing.
  6. i removed the cable of the xbox power supply then i put it back again and turn it again with hard drive but this time it takes few moment then before to turn off is that because of the power supply
  7. As I said earlier, the proof will be in the pudding when I get and fit the replacement caps successfully. But knowing that somebody else has reported the same thing in the past, even if only an unproven claim, is good to hear because I'm going to be very disappointed if it is not just the those blown caps that caused the problem.
  8. I would not bother replacing the Clock Cap in the 1.0-1.4 Xbox boards as it is for short time (3 to 5 hours) time retention when the AC is removed. I have all my Xbox's get the time from the internet when the Xbox dash loads. Cheers SS Dave Soft modding is like masturbating, It gets the job done but it's nothing like the real thing.
  9. I have been told that on the 1.2-1.4 boards it can power on without the power button if the main CPU/GPU caps have failed but I have never seen it and it was only one person that claimed it was a common fault. To me it makes no sense that the Xbox would power on without the power button with faulty caps on the 1.8 volt supply (But I am happy to be proved wrong), It makes more sense that the Xbox would shut down randomly with those caps faulty. I would be looking at the 10k pull up SMD resistors R3G1 and R3G3 for a dry solder joint or a cracked resistor ( I have seen that in car audio systems). The black/gray dots get 3.3 volt from the power supply 3.3 volt standby pin. The blue and purple points on the PIC (SMC chip) should have 3.3 volt at all times unless the Power (purple) or the Eject (blue) buttons are pressed then they should read close to 0 volt.

  10. Interesting information ^ ^^. Can it be explained why those three caps blowing would cause the problem described ie. it turns on when the mains power is switched on? I've had a good look with a magnifying glass and a x8 lupe at the MB and I can not seeing anything obviously amiss with the traces anywhere, even under the faulty caps. No leakage to cause that sort of problem. I do know that there were reports about the Xbox that poor manufacturing practices at the time allegedly can lead in the long term to trace damage, things like sweat/grease from bare handling of the MB. But there's nothing like that either. In fact the whole of the inside of that Xbox is cleaner than any other I've ever seen of that age. Only a bit of extra dust on the extractor fan blades betrays that it has been used at all.
  11. That diagram is correct and a Xbox power supply will not stay powered on without the PowOk 3.3 volt The 1.6 supply gives a approximately a 1 second pulse on the 5 volt standby when the AC is connected and if it doesn't see a PowOk it shuts down. The 3 X 3300uF caps are the filter caps for the 1.8 volt supply for the CPU/GPU and that supply is controlled by Q2F1 a Power Mosfet The 2.6 volt supply for the RAM is controlled/regulated by U5G1 and that gets a 3.3 volt supply from U7F1 that is powered by the 5 volt standby As far as I can work out the the red is the 5 volt for HDD and USB power with the yellow 12 volt for the HDD and Fan, In my testing some time ago the Xbox will not fully boot ( no animation) and will shut down if either is not present or removed after booting.

  12. sure i'll buy them but is there a capacitor for clock ?
  13. C:\evoxdash.xbe (2.91MBs) is actually UnleashX's XBE file renamed to evoxdash.xbe. Evox +3935's XBE file is 752KBs in size while UnleashX 0.39.0528A Build 584 is 2.91MBs.
  14. Is this table wrong? Standby 5Vdc is on the RED wire and not the ORANGE wires. At the moment, I don't have a 1.6 Xbox to measure them. As well, the BLUE wire doesn't have 3.3V when in STB mode?
  15. On the 1.6 versions the 3 X 3300uF 6.3volt main filter caps for the CPU/GPU are not powered when in standby the same as the other versions. Cheers SS Dave Soft modding is like masturbating, It gets the job done but it's nothing like the real thing.
  16. If you download the prebuilt XBMC4Gamers from the rocky5 github Then extract and FTP to E: (should look like E:xbmc4gamers) then edit the dash1 to "dash1Name = e:xbmc4gamers/default.xbe" it will then load xbmc4gamers as the default dash. evoxdash.xbe on the C drive root directory is most of the time a shortcut to the location of the dash the installer disk/app set as default.

  17. Right, there is another Evox in the E/Dash/EvolutionX file path that is the Dash3name part So, the Evoxdash on the roor of C is just a dummy? Now I understand these are not the Dash's I talked about but I'll get it working right with these, i have XBMX4Gamers I can rip
  18. Hmm, Bit more confused lol. So my Xbox Boots to unleashedX but according to this it should boot to Evox? This is currently unchanged
  19. LE Green UK/EU are all v1.2 - date of my one is 21st February 2003. As I recall it was bought from Amazon in Spring that year only a few months later. The blown 6.3v 3300uF caps are all the black and silver Nichicon type although not marked as such from what I can see. Manufacturing date of those must have been slap bang in the middle of that bad 'cap plague' period SS_Dave's wiki link describes. I've just ordered some low ESR Panasonic branded replacements very similar to the ones I've used before successfully.
  20. Last week
  21. Thank you for the quick reply. Sad to hear that but it makes sense. At least now I, and hopefully anyone else who has this problem will, know!
  22. Here is why and I also suspect the fact they are next to the heat sink is not helping https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Capacitor_plague It would be interesting to see the number of hours on the HDD as that would give an idea of how much use it's had I suspect it will have a lot of hours on it, The next one I open with dud cap's I will have to look.

  23. Your on the right track For simplicity use the 256kb with EvoxM8 to boot to Unleashed X The have the X2-5053.67 in the 512kb bank, you then edit the config file on E drive to load XBMC. FTP this to E drive root directory after editing it x2config.ini If you open it with Notepad on your PC and change the dash1name to look for XBMC 1st If you have XBMC on F drive the use this, dash1Name = f:xbmc/default.xbe ; 255 characters max here, format is <drive>:<path_to_xbe>.xbe, e.g. "f:dashes\avalaunch.xbe" ; keep all paths lowercase just in case you have any issues with dashboards booting dash1Name = f:evoxdash.xbe dash2Name = e:evoxdash.xbe dash3Name = c:evoxdash.xbe dash4Name = c:xbmc.xbe dash5Name = c:xboxdash.xbe Cheers SS Dave Soft modding is like masturbating, It gets the job done but it's nothing like the real thing.
  24. Hello So I have a Chip called a jafar, Its an upgraded Aladdin XT with Xblast. 1 Bank of 512, 1 256 and the last 256 is reserved for the Xblast which always boots first. My Question is how do I get Dual Dashboards with this? I have UnleashedX as I've always liked it but want to give XBMC a try Ideally I'm looking to have say Unleashed X boot with the 512mb X2 5035.137 bios and XBMC Boot with the evox.m8plus bios or visa versa After extensive searching online I am none the wiser, Could someone point me in the right direction to get started?
  25. It's a problem with UnleashX when widescreen is enabled. The dashboard does not scale things properly. Edit: I thought it was only with widescreen enabled; however, it must be with any resolutions higher than 480. Without the source code for UnleashX, I don't believe it will ever be fixed.
  26. Is it a v1.6 Xbox? I believe the resign of the 1.6 motherboard with 5Vdc standby has power always applied to those capacitors all the time it is connected to AC power. The console itself does not have to be on just plugged in.
