  1. I put together a package with all the software needed. I also included the SVF file generated by ISE's impact. This is now the easiest method for programming OpenXenium's CPLD chip. After setup, it's just one click. Merry Christmas and enjoy! https://sites.google.com/view/xc9500xl-with-openocd-ft232r/home

  2. Easy-Build for XBOX Original What is it? A tool in testing for compiling xbox code. Easy to Update script. https://github.com/Empyreal96/easy-build-xbox How to use: Have easy-build-xinit.cmd on the ROOT of a drive e.g: D:\easy-build-xinit.cmd Open easy-build-xinit.cmd Setup the Xbox trunk in your Drive root as specified in easy-build-xinit (VHD users are already set up) Let the script apply Team Complex patches (These allow the xbox trunk to be built) Once that's done, follow onscreen instructions until Razzle loads Type into razzle:

  7. Hi folks, Thought I'd share a pic of a nice Newhaven Display OLED which works nicely with the OpenXenium for me. I just used the Arduino Pro Micro but not on the spi2par2019 board, since it's oled (no backlight etc), plus it's no use anyway since oled has a 20 pin varied connector that doesn't match obviously. You need to be careful setting the pins up. It's using the same hd44780 parallel 6800 4-bit interface (not i2c) - I just set the oled using jumpers soldered on the back as per pdf. I added the initialisation code into the .ino and changed some of the hd44780 commands up as

  9. Finished building the Xbox with the OLED installed. Managed to go in without an 'overcut' since I had a bit of patience for once and cut inside the lines, then used a file, As promised a few pics (though the camera hated the brightness & blue colour, had to shine lighting on it) Decided to do a Hotachi/LG flashed 8050L pc drive too for it since the dvd was capput as usual. Take ages to get the dvd tray sitting flush perfectly and all 6 case screws in too. Have to modify the dvd drive metal and plastic chassis to do that - a right chore. It's running a nice original 200GB ID

  12. Only minor changes. It does all the same things as the legacy one. - Less components for simplified BOM - Larger compents for easier soldering (0805s instead of 0402s etc) - Crystal has been replaced with a new style package. This caused alot of issues in the past. - Larger power traces and grounds. Should help with wired controllers that have large inrush currents.

  13. There is a way of changing the HDD key key and the common thing among soft modders was to null the key( make the key all 0's) by doing that you can swap the locked hard drive between any soft modded Xbox that has a nulled key. Look for Rocky5's extras disk https://github.com/Rocky5/Xbox-Softmodding-Tool With the new version of Xbox live ( Insignia) the HDD key can not be all zero's so now they use all one's instead. If the hard drive is locked it can only be used in the device it was locked too, but as long as you have the HDD key for that hard drive can be unlocked an

  14. In my view fitting a modchip directly to the board like video that is been too lazy to fit pin header. Use the Alternative D0 point on the bottom of the PCB as it is easier to solder to. Don't worry about the L1 wire and I link the BT on the mod chip to ground and not to the front panel. This forces the chip to be always active, The only reason the turn the chip off was for Xbox Live. Any reason you are fitting a Aladdin mod chip on a version that can have the TSOP flashed?

  17. No problem! I kept forgetting it existed but now I rely on it Yeah that's the same tree I worked with just installed as was in the source setup, with the different installation path, just modify "xbox\private\SDK\setup\xsdkbuild.bat" It has paths set for the "Default" they used with the source so we can change it to where ever if needed And the files I think are in the "xbox\private\SDK" folder somewhere, I think it was called setup.rul or something, that folder has the IS Build script and specific XDK setup libraries and headers

  20. It depends on the collector and on the rarity of the Xbox. Some collectors want the console to remain sealed while others don't mind as much. Xboxes in particular suffer from capacitor leakage issues, which can lead to permanent damage to the motherboard if not handled. So, a sealed console (that is not a 1.6) will definitely still have those old capacitors, which means it could be int he process of breaking itself due to trace rot issues. If a collector wants it to put their Xbox on a shelf and doesn't care if it works or not, then having a sealed console is more desirable to them than having

  22. You should invest in a proper hot air rework station. Heat guns are not designed for removing or soldering components. There is no way to control the heat setting, and the heat disperses way too far. This can damage components that you are not intending to heat up. A hot air rework station will allow you to control the temperature and also allow you to direct the heat to exactly where you need it.

  27. Although it may be useful you don't actually need the eeprom as 'all' that does is lock the HDD to the specific Xbox. With chips/TSOPs that is not necessary; HDDs can be used unlocked. It is only retail state and softmodded Xboxes that need to have locked HDDs. The problem you have is being able to flash a chip with a no DVD check BIOS and doing that without a working DVD drive is a bit of a chicken/egg dilemma. Without the DVD drive being recognised as attached the Xbox will error 11 or 12 whether it is chipped or not. But you say the Thomson DVD drive is recognised so, obviously th

  28. The fact Is that I own 2 Xbox dvd drives (one per Xbox). The first is a Philps one,but I doesn't even boot when plugged in(doesn't open and if I insert a game dvd manually and boot the console it doesn't spin) and Xbox spits error 12. The other one is a Thomson which boots and is recognised by the motherboard but won t read any type of disk. So obviously I can't flash anything

  29. Yu could try this https://www.dropbox.com/sh/wpaq5gccv7f6d76/AACSuSj23bpeueBAV_stzGa6a?dl=0 ftp the file to your Xbox then with the X3 chip fitted and the D0 grounded run this file and it erases the X3 chip,You may then be able to then get to the main config screen and flash a new BIOS. I would be surprised if it comes good as by the sound of it you sent 200+ volt though the board.

  31. That Xbox is a 1.4 and can also be TSOP flashed but as the chip is there you might as well use it and the modchip is one of the aladdin group of chip's and that one can have a LCD attached to it. It is easy to reflash a new bios to as well. My choice between the 2 chips would be this one as it is a rock solid chip and one of the most copied chips by the asian sellers, At one stage they were selling for $5 usd including postage, the way both chips have been fitted makes removal not something I would suggest for the beginner as damage to the main board is possible. This chip and the

  32. It is possibly a Xkiller modchip that's based on the cheap mod chip. No, The Xbox usb is only for game saves and controllers The problem you are going to have is the BIOS on that chip will only support a 137gb hard drive, You might be able to update the BIOS file on that chip to a later BIOS that will support up to 2.2tb. If it was me I would reflash the TSOP and do away with that chip. Cheers SS Dave Soft modding is like masturbating, It gets the job done but it's nothing like the real thing.

  34. Here is my version of a slim XBOX that I designed. I tried to make the case as small as possible, and still look like an original xbox. I removed the DVD drive and the power supply from the xbox. I pulled my 1.4V xbox out of storage and it was fragging. Got tired of troubleshooting it (the clock capacitor was already removed). So I bought a 1.0 on ebay with a broken dvd drive for $15. The finish on the XBOX is not super, planning to reprint in white filament ( I ran out on my test prints), and only paint the black portions of the case. https://imgur.com/gallery/o58Nul0

  36. Hi, Unfortunately I sold the Xbox and have no pictures of the wiring on the back. I just wired it up to the spec of the PDF suitable for the HD44780 spec even though the OLED doesn't say it's supports it, I just set it to the same bit spec. After that I opened up the spi2par2019 code in the IDE suite and added the OLED initialisation code and changed the existing header instructions and added more code instruction to set the display lines correctly. Then I made a final change to the LCD library in the Arduino suite for the 3rd & 4th lines register as it was different for the

  37. I use XBMC daily but not because I particularly "like" it better. I personally prefer UnleashedX. I think it is just better to navigate and I like the settings interface much better. But what I don's like is the SLOW loading if you have a hard drive full of games. That alone forces me to use XBMC for the primary dash....but I still zap back to UnleashedX here and there for things

  39. well firstly i would physically inspect the clock capacitor, on a 1.6 its by the ide connector on the board, its not one of the leaky type but it may be bulging, the 1.6 needs a clock capacitor in place to boot so if you need to replace order a like for like rated cap and then swap them out. even if you do replace it then the xbox will need to be plugged in for it to keep date/time for more than a day or so anyway so not really worth it unless you are leaving it set up and it really bothers you!

  40. It's the boot order. EEC boot a dashboard from E:\xxxxxx CEE boot a dash from C:\xxxxxx C(EE) bioses mostly boot the "evoxdash.xbe" from the C partition. E(EC) mostly point to something like " E:\XBMC\default.xbe" or "E:\Dash\UnleashX\unleashx.xbe. In case the first C or E can't be found it will search for different dashboards which are defined there. Example - CEE : C:\evoxdash.xbe E:\Dash\UnleashX\unleashx.xbe E:\Dash\EvolutionX\evoxdash.xbe Example - EEC: E:\Dash\UnleashX\unleashx.xbe E:\XBMC4Gamers\default.xbe C:\evoxdash.xb

You can choose between a Static and DHCP because, some prefere the one over the other so make your pick which you like more. I have cut out the emulators and put them on a standalone installer. I also have made a "Game DLC; Game Update, Game Wide Fix, Game HDD Fixes DVD". Basicly it was just for me but hey, why not share it it right? And I'm working a new build for that which includes Game Saves as well but that will take a wile because of the mass of save games

  47. @Bob_the_vampire yep that flash dump has some issues. Even the protected sector is messed up. So its possible that the CPLD banking is broken or hopefully its just corrupt flash. Upload this to your xbox in the xenium-tools xbe directory and rename it to flash.bin, then in Xenium tools use the 'Write raw flash.bin to Xenium Flash' option. "START+B" If that doesnt work, it doesnt sound promising. Send me another dump of it after flashing it as you did previously. flashGoldClean2.3.1.zip
