  1. OGXBox Installer 2021 Made because ... ! First of, you have the choice between two versions. 1) PBL which uses Phoenix Bios Loader and 2) NonPBL without the Phoenix Bios Loader. Both versions aim mainly for ModChip/TSOP users. So you don't have the options to softmod. If you want that, go with Rocky5's Softmodding Tool. Why using this this instead hof HeXEn/TruHeXEn or Slayers? Well, good question and here is the answer. It's faster as all of them. It dosn't has faulty bioses on it. It's up to date and it offers way, way more to install as any of them. So you have planty of Ap

  4. I noticed that you have pics of the white stuff on the PSU, That is a type of glue and is normal. As KaosEngineer has posted clean the board after removing the clock cap but I would use a tooth brush instead of cotton swabs.

  5. Run the Xbox for 10 minutes then try twisting the heat sink. In my view and testing I have not seen the GPU temps drop with new heat sink paste, I was testing the heat sink temp with a Fluke temperature probe on the heat sink if any then the GPU heat sink was a fraction colder meaning it was not absorbing the heat from the chip as well. And the GPU temp that is displayed on the screen is not the GPU it is the mother board temp.

  7. Bios “FAQ”: What does CEE or EEC meen and what is different? CEE/EEC is the boot order of the bios file. CEE will boot it’s first Dashboard from the “C:\” partion of the drive. In most cases it’s “C:\evoxdash.xbe”. Which can be either a the EvolutionX Dashboard or a shortcut to a different Dashboard on any other partition (C,E,F or G). So you could place a shortcut on C:\ and point to E:\Dash\UnleashX\unleashx.xbe and when you boot up your XBox, UnleashX will show up as Dashboard. Screen : https://imgur.com/a/hf6nG5Z In some cases, the evoxdash.xbe can be found

  10. Im going to back up my data and reformat the 5th and 7th partition. Ill try the same format I have now (6th partition 16kb clusters and 7th partition 64kb clusters) I will also split the extended partitions equally (two 32kb clusters). It will take some time to move my game files to my nas. Ill let you know the results probably next year (or hopefully sunday) Edit: G drive was enabled in other dashboards. Still no detection of the drive

  11. This contains the 2 bios files I have on my X2.6 chip and the Config files I use and both are set to load xbmc4gamers as the 1st dash There is a folder called C drive put the ind-bios.cfg file on C drive in the root directory and do the same for the E drive folder The folder called Flash this bios has a bios file to flash to the mod chip and it has the X2-5035.67 as well as the iND5004.67 bios files Bank is the iND5004.67 and Bank 2 is the X2-5035 bios There is also the X2bm_v23 program that is used to combine the bios file in to one file but you will not need it.

  12. Error 7 is the hard drive not responding in a timely manor (quick enough) More than likely the hard drive is dying a slow death so do the right thing and put it out of it's misery and replace it. Error Code 07 Problem: Hard drive timeout / HDD took too long to become ready. Cause/Solution: The Xbox seems to know the HDD is present but it times-out waiting for the drive to become ready and respond to commands. This is probably due to a loose connection or faulty wire. See the solution for Error Code 08. Error Code 08 Problem: No hard drive found. Cause/

  13. Yes, other tools just do the short fatx checks, region & media flag patch the xbes. DVD2Xbox does the long fatx patch and can also do a lot more custom patches for games that require specific modifications.

  14. Depends how much you have on the HDD too but, particularly if the new HDD is SATA and you're using a SATA adapter you will notice that boot up is slower. After the Xbox/MS logo screen it will go blank for 10 -30 seconds before the dash appears. With my 320GB WD (Blue) SATA HDD with about 70GB of free space now my UnleashX dash takes about 20 seconds to appear. On my 'kitchen' Xbox which has a 160GB Seagate IDE HDD and about 100GB of free space my XBMC main dash logo appears only a few seconds after the Xbox/MS logo has faded. In short: what you're seeing sounds pretty normal.

  15. With the eventual goal of creating a very slimmed down xbox I took one of the cheap SD to IDE adapters and modified it into this. Desoldered the existing male header; soldered a female header onto the back for a direct motherboard connection. Soldered the power connection to the DVD header to keep wires from running across the board. Unfortunately this meant the openxenium install was to tall; so that got a direct solder to the motherboard.

  16. I tested the following games: TOCA Race Driver (Italy) (http://redump.org/disc/52460/) TOCA Race Driver 2 (Europe) (En,Fr,De,Es,It) (http://redump.org/disc/20412/) TOCA Race Driver 3 (World) (En,Fr,De,Es,It) (http://redump.org/disc/30648/) extract-xiso applied only one patch to TOCA 1 and none to the others, but still all 3 games loaded fine and let me create a profile. I don't know if the protection kicks in later or what.

  18. It's not necessary to extract them. You can convert them with a modified version of extract-xiso. Then I use XBMC4Gamers' script to install them in bulk.

  19. You need to patch the xbes, some games have a xbe offset check (Toca 3 is one) that looks for the xbe at a specific position on the disc. If you remake the XISO from extracted files it will crash at the main menu so you need to patch it still. DVD2Xbox makes a 1.1 copy of the disc (split if larger than 4GB) basically a redump image, so the xbe offset and any other xbe checks games have are intact when done this way. Only downside is they are 7GB each. Media, FatX and region patches are fine when making XISO, as the long file name protections are separate from those and that

  20. But it's the only format that can be used to verify a dump against the original. And can be converted to XISO fairly easily (with the right tools). I can confirm that extract-xiso, with my fixes, can be used to convert also this game. The command I use is the following: extract-xiso.exe -r -m "MyGame.iso" -r rewites the ISO, while -m disables automatic xbe patching (it shouldn't be necessary when running from XISO, but I could be wrong here). As for the splitting part, I use GNU split, but any file splitter can be used, as long as you split on a 2 kB (2048 B) boundary. I usu

  21. Has any one really had a look for the differences between the 110 and 220 volt supplies. I have started comparing a Jap PSU (100-127 volt) to a Aus PSU (220-240 volt) and so far the two main differences is the Aus spec has a extra power filter on the AC input and the Jap version has a hidden link under the main power filter The part with the red star is on the 220 volt and on the 110 volt there is a link at the red arrow The blue arrows are the only difference I have seen so far as far as the different input voltage and the link is doing the same as a universal Xbox PSU I have t

  22. Perfect, this is exactly what I needed. For an update, I removed the time capacitor with my soldering iron, and cleaned the front and back of the board with IPA and cotton swabs. I cleaned the ADM1032 multiple times and used extra IPA on it. Then I put it all together and tried to turn the xbox on. Basically the same issue occurs, however it takes a little while longer for the orange light to display. If I leave the A/V cable out and power it on, it will first flash green and orange indicating that the A/V cable is unplugged, but will then go into its usual blinking orange and shutting on

  23. Not without proper test equipment. Oscilloscope, logic analyzer, etc. Find any YouTube video on the removal/replacement of a surface mount chip. Hot air workstation comes in handy to heat all the solder and lift the chip off. here's an example using a standard soldering iron and tweezers:

  24. Here is a step by step tutorial for making a high quality component cable using an Xbox 360 component cable and a standard original Xbox Composite AV cable that pretty much everyone will have. I was looking for an original Xbox component cable recently and my options were a cheap Chinese non brand component cable, a monster cable or an official HD kit. The latter being crazy expensive nowadays. Since I have a background in electronics I thought why not make one from a 360 cable if a standard AV cable has all the pins present but not wired. I did a quick Google and I am not the first to have do

  25. The System Management Controller (SMC) is detecting an overheating condition. This can be falsely sent to the SMC by the ADM1032 8-pin surface mount temperature sensor at location U6F1. If clock cap electrolyte reached the two support caps on the left side or between the pins of the chip, the false reading can be sent. Or, if the chip has died, another condition that can cause the false overheating signal to be registered by the SMC. Fix: Clean the motherboard in and around the chip with cotton swabs and 91%+ isopropyl alcohol. If that doesn't fix it, unsolder it and replace it with

  28. Just a little info about the new version of OGXBox. I already had patched the new HDMI bioses for the MakeMHz users with the "new" v1.3.2 patch and was rdy to release but MakeMHz released a new patch v1.4.2 (Today / Yesterday not to sure). They have also released a patch for the iND 5003.xx bios (NOTE: This is for the XISO version and not for the original iND release as I found out by checking MD5 hashes (No note on github about that!)). So I will patch the m8 again with the new 1.4.2 (YAY) and also the iND XISO 5003 for the next version of OGXBox.

  29. I believe that 1.6 PSU voltage level table is wrong. Only the 5Vdc standby voltage on the orange wires will be present when the console if OFF with AC power connected. Check the following archived webpage for troublelshooting the power / eject board - power on/off issues with the console. http://web.archive.org/web/20160426094500/http://diy.sickmods.net/Tutorials/Xbox1/Power-Eject_Pinouts/ A v1.6 motherboard is a different beast than previous revs of it.

  30. Make sure the power supply unit (PSU) you swapped in is for a 1.6 Xbox. Even though the connector is the same 2x10 ATX-style connector on v1.2-1.4 PSU's, the voltage levels on the pins is a bit different.

  31. The 1.6 only has a 5 volt standby from the power supply and the PowOk pin should have 3.3 volt is from the main board to the PSU The orange and should at least give a pulse when you plug in the AC if no pulse the the PSU has failed if the pulse is there then the transistors near the gold cap properly have failed I have had a 1.6 running with just a 12 and 5 volt supply Cheers SS Dave Soft modding is like masturbating, It gets the job done but it's nothing like the real thing.

  32. The ISO is not ment to be extracted or mounted. Open your burn software and select the ISO and burn it to disc. Mrs Google say's : How to Burn an ISO or DMG File to Disc on Your Mac Insert a blank disc in your DVD writer. Open the folder in Finder that contains your ISO or DMG file. Right-click the file and choose "Burn Disk Image" Click Burn.

  34. @lizardmonkeyI'm working away from home at the moment but will send you a link once I'm back. The motherboard model was mainly created to check that it would fit in my case design. I roughly placed the mounting holes and updated my case to get them in the correct position but never updated the motherboard. This is why they are a bit off. I could correct it but that will have to wait until I get time.

  35. I have read posts of people saying they spend 60 minutes lapping a OG Xbox CPU heat sink because it might be bowed/warped to me that is a waist of time when the contact area is 12mm X 10mm. I did test a heat sink one day for shits and giggles and found it 2 thousands of a inch out over the entire surface. The best thing I have found for cooling is a clean heat sink and a clean fan. If the heat sink needs to be removed or moves easily then replace the heatsink paste. Cheers SS Dave Soft modding is like masturbating, It gets the job done but it's not

  36. My eyes are shot, but I use this, and have done for many years. It's not perfect, but it's never let me down, and cost €20 from a car boot sale. I removed the fluorescent tube and added an LED ring. I'm doing a 128 meg upgrade on an xbox tomorrow, and the board will look exactly like this, through the magnifier. (picture taken with phone through the lens) I know a proper microscope would be nice but if I can't manage it from the above, I reckon it's time I give up... although I would LOVE a Mantis!

The NTSC/Pal setting is in the stored in EEprom you can use Xblast to change it And the 480p,720p, 1080 is also there but it is not advisable to use it are a set in the MS dash also you can set with Xblast Setting the Pal/NTSC is only changing the video out put not the game region.

  45. Hey Folks, hey @KaosEngineer and @neighbor! hope you guys are doing well? So today, I ripped the DVD with my XBox. i ripped it with 2 different modes (iso and raw), created a Mega-Account and uploaded all the files, they are ready to go. I also scanned the artwork (front, back and DVD) for you guys (just in case you want to print it out or use it digitally). Here are the links: Raw DVD-Files: https://mega.nz/#F!rZh1SbQL .iso DVD-Files: https://mega.nz/#F!fJoBFRjK Artwork: https://mega.nz/#F!GI4HVLiQ so, start you machines and get downloading!

  47. I think, the XISO's will take less space in the long run than extracting the files/folders from them. Any file less than the cluster size will take a full cluster to store on the HDD - 32KB or 64KB for large extended partitions. (Update: Long filenames are not problem as a DVD disc image is mounted that doesn't have the FATX filename length limitation. The mounted image looks like a DVD disc is loaded. Also for games larger than 4GB's in size, the max size of a single file allowed in FATX, the ripper splits the image into multiple files <4GB each that are mounted as one larger than
