  4. Well, check the folders: Cerbios V2.2.0 Beta (MAIN FOLDER) Cerbios Hybrid V2.20 BETA UDMA2 (SUB FOLDER 1) 256kb (SUB FOLDER 2/1) bios (SUB FOLDER 3/1) bios.bin 512kb (SUB FOLDER 2/2) bios (SUB FOLDER 3/2) bios.bin 1024kb (SUB FOLDER 2/3) bios (SUB FOLDER 3/3) bios.bin Same layout for UDMA4 and UDMA5. The main reason is that you can use these right away with XBlast and the Winbond TSOP. And it makes my life easier when adding these to the OGXBox USB Flasher and the OGXBox Installer. So there is no need to copy a file, rename it blablabla. Just unrar to C:\ and done. And if you don't like it, you are free to download the original pack from XBins.

  7. That's insane, the og xbox is loooong dead in MS opinion. They are not going to waste time and money chasing after someone who is doing something to keep a 20 year old console alive. If that was the case they would be taking down websites left right and centre as their bioses are literally posted all over the place. I mean we have many different versions posted on this very site. I believe it was Bill Gates himself who said he was very impressed at what modders had done with the OG a few years back. Fingers crossed Stellar will support booting Cerbios from the SD card which will then enable CCI support by default. That will probably be the only way and by doing that we will probably lose most of Stellars new features. Hopefully someone with a bit of pull in the scene can convince MakeMhz that its a bad idea to split the already small scene in 2 and that by supporting as much as possible he will open up his product to more customers. He doesn't even need to support Cerbios if he is so against it, repackinator is open source and everything he needs just to add CCI support to his custom Stellar bios is right there.

  8. @nikeymikey cut the guy some slack. He is trying to run a legitimate company. He is running the risk of being sued by MS and loosing a shitload of money on lawsuits. The bios is copyright protected and might even contain MS IP, so at some point they have to protect it even after 23 years. So I can imagine he wants to steer clear of hacked bioses.

  12. Well the “Xbox artwork installer” is out, although it’s only on my downloader that comes with XBMC-Emustation and XBMC4Gamers. Currently prebuilt is 1072 Games with full artwork and synopsis information. There is more artwork done but that’s for specials and homebrew/emulators eg... these aren’t part of the installer. But you can download and manually install them from the github link below. Also a big thanks to everyone who scanned the disc and sleeves of all the Xbox games over at Emuxtras. If you want to make your own artwork or manually install the artwork you can get everything you need here. Link: XBMC4Gamers Artwork Github Full artwork source, 23.1GB worth so it’s big :eek: (removed, as to many downloads effect downloader and all files on this account) Link: Full Artwork Source Google Drive (23.1GB) Here is a preview of said artwork prebuilt ready for the Xbox. Link: 007 - From Russia With Love

  13. So as you may know i've already designed 2 different xbox mini cases and I'm also working on a full replacement case. This design sits in between these two, it loses the DVD rom and uses a 2.5" HDD/SSD instead of the full sized HDD. It also keeps the original PSU. The lid incorporates ducting to guide air over the heatsinks and also holds the HDD/SSD. Sttill a work in progress but heres a quick look so far:

  18. Hello all! I use to be really into the mods back in the days. I shared a lot of hardware info and came up with a easy to build Eprom reader to get the Hdd KEYS out of the bios chip storage. I recently pulled out 4 Xboxes that I had squirreled away for future projects, I saw this on a YouTube video and thought, wow people are still into modding the old Xbox! Good to meet all of you!

  19. I'm sure they will fix that. Seems there are some minor video output bugs on the 1.6 xbox (other people reported this already on the team cerbios discord room on the xbox-sceneserver). Thats also the reason why the bios has beta in the name. They just did a monster update with CCI, just have a little patience .

  20. I believe he has said in the past that he will not be supporting Cerbios as it is made using a hacked original bios which is copyright material owned by Microsoft. I can get that but when EVERY single bios ever released has been based of that original hacked bios it seems a little bit of a pointless crusade in 2023. If he wants Project Stellar to become the defacto modchip that people will turn to then he needs to support as much as possible imo. I does also make me think about the touted possibility or running bioses via the SD card mounted on Stellar. If he hates the old style hacked bioses so much then why would he allow loading of EvoX, iND or even Cerbios from the SD card. IF that does work and we can load a bios from the SD then CCI support will be easy as its baked in to Cerbios. The trade off would be losing whatever extra features that Stellar allows when using its own "NON" copyright infringing bios. Whether that becomes an issue or not for most people depends on what those said Stellar only features are. I was all in on getting a couple of Stellars but now I am firmly on the fence until they have been released and people have had a chance to evaluate if they really are as game changing as MakeMHZ claims or not.

  21. @MadMartigan Thanks for the info. @KaosEngineer Correct, yeah the Xbox works fine with the original HDD installed solid green and all functioning. After looking online and seeing your comment I think that the issue might have been the fact that I am using DVD - R+ which might be causing issues, found some people were saying that the thomson DVD drive doesn't like them, and can be a bit flaky in general. I have ordered some DVD - R's so fingers crossed I have better luck with them. Awesome news, if not, installing from the original modded HDD will be plan B then, apologies for more questions but where would I find "Evolution-X's dashboard"? "Current Dashboards Installed - C and E Drive Content Check What files and folders are present in the root folder of your Xbox's C and E drives?" Will find out tonight and let you know. "Modchip Bank Select Have you tried booting the console with the Bank select switch set to 2 instead of 1? If not, do so, what happens?" No I haven't yet will test out tonight and see.

  22. well the cut outs are specifically designed for an xbox mainboard, you would need to change quite a lot for a Pi, including internal mounting points. You may as well design your own case that suits your exact needs to be honest

  23. After reading the UnleashX manual, I thought why not learn to create a skin? And here it is; introducing SimpleX, a simple UnleashX skin. This skin was created with CRT TV in mind, and not yet tried on LCD TV so don't know how the results. Just clone its repo or download from its release page. EDIT: The Skin folder can be directly dropped into UnleashX's Skins folder. But, the Config.xml need a bit of editing as it's uses E:\Applications and E:\Dashboards as its paths. Adjust it to your ogxbox paths, which is usually E:\Apps and E:\Dash. A simple find and replace will do. SimpleX_Applications_Dashboards.7z SimpleX_Apps_Dash.7z

  25. Thanks for the reply @bobilix, unfortunately I do not have any other cables to connect the xbox other than composite video, however I tried connecting it to a flat-screen TV and the image there looks correct, so I guess the problem only happens when connecting to a CRT display? I also checked and the image gets broken when the intro video (the one after the wolf image, that looks like the standard xbox intro video) is playing, almost at the end of it the image does a kind of "jump" however on the flat-screen TV it keeps looking good, whereas on the PVM it starts looking bad. Sorry for the long message, I try to give as much info as I can.

  26. No. You'll need a startech sata to ide adapter, a 80 wire ultra ide cable and you'll want to check the version do you can look for a bad clock capacitor and also visually check other capacitors. Ftp is limited to 10mb/s because the hardware, most now use fatxplorer beta 3 to move files quickly.

  27. The format is a bit different than how you have written it: item "<Name to display in menu>","<Full path to the .XBE file to run for this menu item>" Note: The XBE file (XBox Executable) for a manually entered menu item does not have to be named default .xbe. default.xbe is the name the Xbox's kernel looks for when a game disc is loaded into the DVD drive to play it. This naming convention was carried over to replacement dashboards when they scan for files stored on the hard drive to automatically add entries to the Games/Apps/Emulators menus as set in its configuration file. For Evoxdash, the configuration file is evox.ini and the menu configuration is found in the [Menu] Section {}(s) of the file. Edit: Take a look at the following forum thread for a repost of documentation on using the Evolution-X dashboard: evox for dummies @ FileForums.com For configuration information, start in the 3rd post, Part 4 of the document, and continue reading to the end of the thread.

  28. For XBMC, you simply create Emulators folder in E: partition. Mostly it has default source path preconfigured. XBMC (dahsboard folder)/userdata/sources.xml path for emulators may look like this: <source> <name>Emulators</name> <path pathversion="1">E:\Emulators\</path> <path pathversion="1">F:\Emulators\</path> <path pathversion="1">G:\Emulators\</path> </source> In my case, all possible paritions were preconfigured, only emulators folder is required to be present in specified partition. Every dashboard uses different configs, so it's not universal, you may need to add path manually. So you make a Emulators folder, and for each dashboard you create path for that folder.

  32. The main point is that you can flash a winbond TSOP only if the bios is named bios.bin. And since I don't like to put every bios with the release name and as bios bin on a disc, I decided to do it always as bios.bin in a folder bios. And it keeps the C:\Bios folder pretty clean. When I unpack a bios to C it will be always overwritten which I like. Finaly, for the Installer and Flasher in the next version, there will be also be a bios-info.txt in the C:\bios folder. That way you always now which bios in in that folder. And when it comes to an installer you just need 1 line of code. If you do it with the release name, you need more lines which simply blow up the configs which is needless. And finaly, I don't care for what Heimdall or ToxicMedz has done with HeXEn/TruHeXEn and why. They do it the way they like to do and so do I. I'm not forced to use HeXEn and no one is forced to use "my Installer/Flasher". Like I wrote above, for the next release of the Installer/Flasher every bios will have an bios-info.txt file included in C:\bios to keep track. And every time you unrar a new bios the entire C:\bios folder will get overwritten with the new files. (Side note, if you would do it with copy, rename you would also need delete which just blow up the flasher configs instead of a simple "unrar" and done. (Sadly unleash didn't overwrites an existing bios.bin if the file name of the new one is the same). And you can find out what this "bios.bin" is and even a future user can by checking the MD5. I also update the EvoX ini's with the MD5 sums and the BiosChecker app. So by simply checking the MD5 and reading the ini's you could find out. And to take that a step further there is also a TXT file which contains all MD5 sums of all bios.bin files. Example : ********************************************************************** EvoX m8+ F+G noDVD (256kb): Bios MD5 (bios.bin) : 0efad8b298ecdca019e925210ce740e9 Rar MD5 (EvoXm8pND.rar) : 8a56266463aa1e26c14cddb5a296b76e ********************************************************************** EvoX m8+ F+G yesDVD (256kb): Bios MD5 (bios.bin) : 746d4564e658bae9eb2e1dc832e6878f Rar MD5 (EvoXm8pYD.rar) : 62c60f747cbf7a5d89f7b25836e8b967 ********************************************************************** EvoX m8+ F+G Force 480p noDVD (256kb): Bios MD5 (bios.bin) : 4fc6dff2f331dd2e624ac4d3a593232e Rar MD5 (EvoXm8pND480p.rar) : 3a1ba489aa53abe9aed38dbd14bc6ba5 ********************************************************************** How ever. To end this, here are the untouched XBINS scene files. https://1fichier.com/?2tddgwhmef3vgush75e2 https://mega.nz/file/RZ9EgT6b#YXFAeQcsyhMndT227681lRMyXjbi3b2XWmk4zruQsko

  33. XBlast only reads BIOS files from a certain location, but it doesn't much care about the actual file names. Put multiple files with different titles in C:\BIOS and it'll list them just fine. Heimdall used the "bios.bin" title in HeXEn, which may've given you the wrong idea? That wasn't because of any limitations in XBlast, it was just so he could tell users to select that specific file name when the flashing screen came up.

  34. I searched but couldn't find any "evox.ini" file. But while searching, I found a "Config.xml" that was a dashboard config file with all items existing on the screen, including the game list. I found a Game List tag with only one path pointing to the F Partition. The only thing I did was add new Path tags pointing to the partitions that I wanted and after that, all the games started to appering. Thank you everyone!

  35. i've seen some bad info out there for noobs trying to mod a xbox for the first time. the 2 main ones are to null or modify your hdd key(without disclosing any of the dangers) instead of just keeping the old hdd as a backup to create another drive if needed and the 2nd one is to pry the gpu heat sink off. please don't do this, especially on a xbox that has sentimental value to u. this is a good way to ruin it. we really need to start being more careful what we tell noobs to do. i know my original xbox has a lot of sentimental value to me because it still has the game saves from where i used to go to lan parties with it back in the mid 2000's. i'd be heart broken if one of these guides caused me to ruin it. many other would probably feel the same way about theirs.

  36. On the contrary - you can call it what you like. Stick it in C:\BIOS, load XBlast, flash away. Winbond or not, doesn't matter. If it suits your scripts better to use a particular name, then that's cool. There's no "need" to use any particular name as far as XBlast is concerned, though.

  37. I tried cold removal of the heat-sinks on an already dead, bought for parts Xbox. All it proved was what I already knew and that is you will damage the chips if you do anything as stupid as that shown in this YT tutorial and use a screwdriver or other similar tool to lever them off. The correct way is to let the Xbox heat up - play a game or just let it run on the dash for 15 minutes. How long depends on the ambient temperature. The existing TIM should get softer and when the heat-sink can be wiggled (gently) you should be able to pull it off without damaging the chip at all. There is also a huge question mark over whether replacing the TIM is even necessary

  38. The OS / kernel is in the BIOS stored on the modchip. The dashboard it loads to operate the console is stored on the hard drive. You don't have to have the original files from the hard drive. However, you do need to install at least a replacement dashboard's XBE file on the hard drive at one of the locations set in the BIOS's boot order list. You can find the boot drive letter and boot order list in the X3 Config Live menu at the following location: X3 Config Live > Customize X3 BIOS page's Dashboard Boot Drive = <drive letter: C, E, F, or G> entry, the Dashboard Boot Priority and Dashboard Filenames submenu pages. If you need the stock Xbox dashboard for Insignia (Xbox Live) configuration, soundtrack (ripping CD music files to the hard drive) management or game save management; its file set needs to be uploaded/written to the top-level folder of the C drive.

  40. Ok, that changes things. An IDE-to-SATA adapter and high-speed IDE cable will be required. There should not be any compatibility issue with any retail SATA hard drive. Only hard drives for custom applications with custom firmware that no longer contain the ATA Security feature set would. The X3 modchip can format the drive and you can FTP the files to the various partitions while running the X3 BIOS's X3CL configuration menu. It has its own FTP server that allows you to upload and download files to and from the Xbox's hard drive. FATXPlorer 3.0 Beta can also be used on a Windows 10 / 11 PC to format and read/write data from/to an Xbox formatted (FATX filesystem) hard drive.

  42. Wait on ordering the Startech IDE-to-SATA adapter and high-speed IDE cable. You have a 500GB IDE hard drive, not a SATA hard drive. I thought you were upgrading to a SATA hard drive. The only reason you need the adapter is for a SATA hard drive. The cable however will speed up access to the 500GB IDE hard drive to UDMA4 (66 MBs/second) over the stock IDE cable's speed of UDMA2 (33MBs/second). NEW HARD DRIVE INSTALLATION METHOD Download the current hard drive's content to your PC. With the X3 modchip, you do not need the original hard drive. You can format the new hard drive in the X3 BIOS's X3 Config Live (X3CL) menu. Set the Use Saved Partition Table menu option to Enabled before you Prepare And Format New Drive. After formatting, you will need to use the X3CL's FTP server to upload current hard drive's content to the new 500GB drive. Edit: What brand and model is the current hard drive in your Xbox?

  43. If you only have a config.xml then you're not using an EvoX dash, you're using UnleashX. But the same advice indeed does apply although it is rare that any version of UnleashX doesn't come with a config.xml that enables G:\ by default. Looking at the screenshot it is clear that the config.xml is significantly customised so I guess whoever did that neglected to include G:\ paths that's all. I think you assumed you were using EvoX because the primary dashboard XBE is "evoxdash.xbe". That is just the adopted standard name for the main dash XBE no matter what dashboard you are actually using.

I put a quick video together showcasing the difference between the common file types, size comparison of THUG 2 as all 5 possible file types, and quick CerBios Compressed ISO (CCI) gameplay. Keep you eye out in the Xbox-Scene Discord and on Xbins for a public release in the near future that includes full CCI support!
