  1. Just finished designing my SATA adaptor prototype... The idea was to have a similar layout to the generic 3.5" adaptors, while using the Marvell IC found on StarTech adaptors. The majority of the SMD components are on the rear side of the PCB. Full size Molex connector with reversed orientation to better suit HDD caddy/power cable. Switch for master/slave/cable select, instead of just a pin header and jumper. PHD connector to use DVD cable as alternative power source (experimental) PHD connector also eliminates the DVDrom (no dvd-check bios required) Power and HDD activity LEDs... I'll still make some changes, but I'll get a couple prototypes made up as they are. So, I can test fitment and the performance of the device before I continue any further. Any feedback would be much appreciated, Nem

  2. I appreciate the offers for more testers, but we do have dedicated and skilled testers. The wait is generally on developer/development time, that being said Crunchbite managed to get v1.02 done and it's available now. The most important fix IMO was the cumulative delay between uploading one batch of files and scanning the next, but several other fixes and upgrades are included. v1.02 - Massive speed increase when processing files - Improve network error handling - Add self updater - Show most recently processed files during processing Available now on Xbins, digiex.net and xbox-scene.info

  3. Not unless, it is booting Team Xecuter's FlashBIOS. Theirs is booting EvolutionX's M7, M8 or M8plus BIOS. FlashBIOS is the original BIOS shipped on Team Xecuter X2 or X3 modchips. An MS code free BIOS to be semi-legal. The end user has to reflash the modchip with a modified Xbox BIOS to have a modded Xbox capable of doing normal Xbox operations - playing games and running homebrew apps. Its Netflash operation only supports flashing the flash memory chips on X2 or X3 modchips. The Duo X2 is not a Team Xecuter X2 modchip. X2 modchip flash = AMD Am29F080B X3 modchip flash = AMD 29F016 A DuoX2 modchip's flash memory chip may be a Fujitsu MBM29F080A, Hynix HY29F080 or Am29F080B (the same as an X2 modchip. The only one which FlashBIOS's Netflash feature can reflash.) Clone/fake DuoX2 modchips used ST's M29F080.

  5. Just installed a XeniumICE (thanks @NeMesiS) updated to PrometheOS v1.03.0 and unlocked 9 orphaned HDD's from long gone consoles. Scanned them all with XCAT, uploaded 4000+ new files apparently

  6. I used to buy these adapters in batches of 10 or more at a time for 2 reasons, one to get the price down a bit and two because there would always be some that were DOA. I would say that if I bought 10 I could almost guarantee that at least 3 were dead. Getting the price down allowed me to take those dead ones on the chin and basically made the working ones cost the original price again Now I just use Startechs in my consoles. Dont mod for selling anymore.

  7. That is true, @phrunt. I've added Cerbios 2.3.1 to my post with the links. It contains UDMA 4 through 6, as well as the original for UDMA-2. Also included are the boot animations and PBL.

  8. You can also get Cerbios with the Team Resurgent Pandora downloader. Latest and older versions of it. Use 2.3.1 unless you need 2.3.2 for the HDMI mod support. 2.3.2 has video signal problems with some games. https://github.com/Team-Resurgent/Pandora

  11. I'm all set on this guys, i managed to clean up my xbox & complete the Stellar HDMI install i was in the middle of. Feel like the luckiest guy ever. It fired right up like nothing happened. I still need to tear it back down and clean the shell but other than that, it's set. Thanks for your help everyone!

  12. Well received my Xbox and all the original parts including the ox chip. The ox chip doesn’t look as bad as pictured earlier pretty sure it was staged for the photo under microscope. Bought another OX from Netherlands as it’s already got Prometheos loaded. Got in touch with previous installer on previous page and he fobbed me off. Didn’t even bother to respond. So I asked a local modder to swap the Aladdin to OX. Hopefully he did a good job… only charged $80 AUD

  14. It’s setup to load on stock and hardmodded xbox. Hence the NKPatcher stuff, this is for retail Xbox. So all you do is lock the drive to a nulled/eeprom/all 1’s key and boot the Xbox to be up and running. For hardmods wipe the C partition or just delete everything bar evoxdash.xbe if it exists.

  17. Official MS one maybe, would mean something, anything else is cute, and will be just ignored. Bought a few things not Xbox related that were supposedly refurbished, one device was little more than cleaned on the outside. Another was water damaged, which if it had actually been refurbished this would have been seen if they replaced the battery as stated in the description. The battery was about 60% of the factory rated capacity.

  18. Sounds like you may have trace rot. Take a close look at the four power rails on the underside of the mobo running along the edge. This may be helpful to you with diagnosing and repairing.

  19. XBMC with the MC360 skin!! INSTANT nostalgia hit there. I remember modding all my mates consoles and adding this skin to them. Already running XCAT on it now to see if theres any hidden gold. After that I will see about extracting the skin and uploading it. I'd love a version that worked on the latest XBMC. Link to download skin files : MC360.7z

  20. Been a bit bored as of late and wanted to see how low temps I could get. Microsoft in their infinite wisdom gave the CPU farrrr too much voltage: 1.7V! Nuts! Well the CPU itself runs perfectly fine at 1.3V (lowest the voltage reg will go without messing with the feedback loop). 1.0: Remove the 0ohm resistor on R2E4 1.6: Remove the 2 0ohm resistors on R2E7 & R2E3 The only drawback of doing this, is you'll no longer be able to push the CPU frequency over ~950MHz. The temperature screenshot is from my 1.6, I'm aware that the 1.6 does not have entirely accurate monitoring, but you can see a clear difference. Both were taken at a ~73F ambient with fan running at 20%. Enjoy.

  21. XCAT v1.00 is now out and just waiting for you to start archiving your lost Xbox Live content and updates. I could do a whole writeup but why would I when it's all covered on Consolemods and RetroRGB. https://www.retrorgb.com/xcat-a-huge-win-for-xbox-preservation.html https://consolemods.org/wiki/Xbox:XCAT We have a support channel on the Xbox Scene discord where you can ask you have any questions or list any concerns. https://discord.gg/xbox-scene Download is available on Digiex.net or Xbins. Please check out the Unarchived DLC/TU list to see the simple list of what's missing. https://consolemods.org/wiki/Xbox:Unarchived_DLC Please go forth and Archive your content!

  22. This is all expected behavior. If XCAT is about to run out of memory to prevent a crash it restarts itself. It will start the hashing again from scratch every session but will only upload files it has not hashed and reported on previously. It will not "rearchive" any files again. Once a file is uploaded to completion one time it will never be uploaded again by any user in any session. Every session is unique including restarts while running. XCAT has no way of knowing if you FTPd in content from another console or otherwise put a bunch of new files on the drive unless it scans the drive again. If a file has never been seen previously XCAT will also list the same file twice per scan, once when hashing it, and once when uploading it.

  25. Gotcha. As for caps you were on spec for those. Just as a helpful note…you always go up a bit in voltage and microfarad but should never go below on either. The biggest constraint from going up in voltage usually comes from space. Higher voltage equals larger capacitor. For your silver cpu caps there are five to replace and those are 1500 microfarad 6.3 volts and they are 10mm diameter by 20mm height (though you can make 23-25mm in height work if need be). I’d have to look but I believe the lead spacing is 5-6mm. I would still give it a close once over to make sure there aren’t any solder splashes/bridges anywhere. Maybe even a good cleaning with a soft bristled brush and some 99 percent ipa. Hopefully you’ll be able to resolve the issues all around. We are all happy to help out as you’re working through it though.

  29. I use Startech whenever possible tbf. I have had mixed results with the China adapter 1 on that page. Some worked fine, others worked for a while then died, some were DOA. Build quality does vary a LOT on the cheaper Sata adpaters in my experience. I used to buy them in batches of 10 and ALWAYS had at least 3 in each batch that were DOA. A Startech is pretty much guaranteed to work without issues for a long time.

  30. Would probably be worth going over the mobo and check for any solder splashes/bridges and see if that might be causing the current orange red boot up. Since you’ve been soldering and all. Just thought I’d throw it out there.

  31. thanks MadMartigan You can just keep one probe held flat across the whole row of leads as shown on the left side of this pic, and test those exposed metal points on the white connector one by one with the other probe. If you don't get continuity with a given wire or if the reading goes on/off while flexing the group of wires around (not too much flexing) that means it's bad. I suggested this because my xbox had your same problem a couple years ago and I needed to replace multiple wires there. If you don't have broken wires, at least you'll have eliminated that possibility.

  32. Turn the dial to the same setting as in the picture. Then press the function button until it matches mine also. After that, you touch your red probe tip to one end of the trace you’re testing, and the black probe tip to the desired destination. You should either hear your multimeter make a beep, or show you a reading on the screen. If no reading or beep, there is no continuity.

  38. Agreed. Since you have access to one you could plug in to the mobo to test (with the Xbox components kind of temporarily assembled and out of the way) if the switch is actually the problem. That would be the easiest way. If you have zero problems there then you can assume it’s the switch and proceed to replacing it. If the problem still exists with the new switch then you can assume it’s lies within the power rails on the mobo most likely. I have a few spare known good switches that I use for this purpose all the time. It’s usually the first thing I check when similar power issues arise since it takes so little time to do and I don’t have to take the entire console apart to test it. That comes later. Lol

  39. Did your friend tell you what happened to the console to require this repair? Was it something he did or was it a pick-up? Any more history on the problem might help. If by some chance he tried to flash the Xenium a wrong way, it could require programming again.

  41. So it turns out that my problem was a bad optical cable. In fact I have two bad optical cables. I suppose after all these years I finally wrapped them up too tightly or something and broke the fiber. That's why the output was dim. I did replace the capacitor and the toslink port and they work perfectly. The original port was so worn out that the connector wobbled around in the socket and the keying was not very effective anymore.

  43. This is the PCI "raptor" card that goes into a PC: Just to clarify (and this is more directed at dtomcat), the HDD pictured is not one that goes into the Xbox dev kit. I doubt imaging this would be useful. If this drive was ever used, there *could* be a beta for a game/app on it, but I would be surprised because it looks brand new/sealed. So whoever had it probably didn't use it for game/disc mastering. More info (for others): these hard drives would go into a development PC and would store a game disc image that would be fed into the Xbox over a SCSI cable. If I recall, these drives are just formatted with standard FAT32/NTFS- they just need to be usable by the OS (Windows XP) so that the emulator software (included in the XDK) can read it and feed the game disc over SCSI via the raptor card. "Xbox DVD Layout Tool" is the software that handles everything on the PC side. Maybe @timberland would be willing to image the internal HDD for archiving sake? https://github.com/Ernegien/OGXbdmDumper

  46. I think an ODE would be VERY useful. ISO's of the entire library on a hdd connected as the dvd drive would free up the regular hdd for apps, media, and emulators. Softmodding would be incredibly easy. If this were running on something like a raspberry pi with gigabit nic, uploading games wouldn't take long at all. It could really expand the possibilities. If I had the know-how I would do it. I just don't at present.
