  1. TL:DR: Tested some Chinese adapters. The RXD-629A7-7 have the fastest boot time out of the two Chinese Adapters i could test and in one configuration was only 3 sec slower than a stock XBOX in This may be due to the R4 resistor being a 101. (The other XBOX/Dash combo we tried the RXD in it took twice as long as the stock to boot, still that's only 18 seconds more. The M03E were very precise in their boot times as there was zero variability between each of the four M03E adapters I tested but they were significantly slower that the RXD. The white Microsoft logo seemed to be an indicator of adapter performance. If it took a while to load, then it was easy to identify that the adapter would have significant challenges booting. The RXDs were fairly reliable as long as you didn't have one with "2036" printed on it. None of the boards that had a "01A" on the R4 slot ended up working. Coincidence? Maybe. Full story: I have a lot of XBOXs that I am modding/have modded so I ordered a bunch of the china adapters and randomly got three batches of different model numbers: JP103-5 (Qty 2): 470uF caps, chip labeled IDE/SATA, RH1 spot has a 103 labeled resistor, R4 was a 01A RXD-629A7-7 (Qty 5): 470 uF caps, chip labeled IDE/SATA, RH1 was a 103. For the R4, 3 of them had a 101, and two had a 01A. Of the two that had a 01A, one was reversed so the lettering was facing the opposite way of the board markings. The two that had the 01A also had a marking of 2036 which none of the other three did (spoiler alert, the ones with 2036 did not work) M03E (Qty 5): 220 uF caps, no visible markings on 3 of the 5 chips, and very very feint IDE/SATA markings on 2 of the 5. No resistor on the RH1 or R4 spots. Here is where I unnecessarily induced bias. The JP103s and the two RXDs marked with a 2036 looked like they had really bad solder jobs from the start so I reflowed those before even starting testing, which is a big error. I shouldn't have done regardless of how they looked (and some looked pretty bad). None of them ended up working even when tested on multiple hard drives. One of the M03E's also did not work, but I hadn't done any work on that one...so if you are keeping track at home, 4 out of 4 of adapters i worked on never ended up working. 1 out of 8 adapters that I didn't touch didn't work...I probably did not help the situation, and lesson RElearned to always due an incoming test first. Anyway, on to discussing the ones that DID work: Methodology: Ran each adapter through two tests: 1) a timed power on test from power button push to display of white microsoft logo and subsequent full dash load. 2) a timed game load of Burnout 3 that was loaded onto the hard drive. Each test was repeated three times per adapter and on two separate XBOXs. Four other XBOXs were put through the same testing regiment for comparitive analysis (I couldn't call them controls since they aren't set up exactly the same and i couldn't control for all the variables) Box A: V1.0, TSOP with ind-bios, unleashX dash, WD3200AAJS (320GB total 80GB free, 75% full) HD, 80 wire cable, Thomson DVD Box B: V1.1, soft mod with Rocky's softmod dash v1.1.6, WD 1002FBYS (1TB total, 705GB free, 25% full) HD, 80 wire cable, Philips DVD Box (comparison) V1.6, soft mod, XBMC Emustation v2.0, WD 1200BB 120GB IDE HD, (13% full), 40 wire cable, Thomson DVD Box (comparison) V1.0, TSOP, Cerbios 2.3.1 UDMA 4 with Stock HD (8GB, 2.7GB free 66% full), 40 wire cable Box E: (comparison) v1.6, soft mod, Rocky Softmod Dash v1.1.6, Stock HD, (44% full) 40 wire cable, Samsung 605F Box F: (comparison) XBOX in native state Attached are the raw data collection results. I have some 101 resistors that I could put on the M03E boards in the R4 slot but do not yet have the skill to solder them on. I may practice on some of my DOA boards and once I get confident enough I'll see if adding the 101 makes a difference on the working M03E boards. Right now I don't know when I will have time for that however. I welcome your thoughts on testing methodology, results, analysis, and conclusions. Most of the XBOXs are still open if there are other tests you think I should run. Thanks! UDMA 4 SATA adapter comparison.xlsx

  3. First of all... I absolutely love this site & community. You all rock. Period. Grab some popcorn, this is the fist 'official' time I'm telling the "brief" version... So my name's Toby Dziubala and I was the most junior member of the very original handful of people who were on the "Xbox Advanced Technology Group" or "ATG" group. Through a series of wild twists of fate, I was hired sometime in late 1999, when it was only about maybe 10 of us. I worked directly for Seamus Blackley, who interviewed me, and I was working shoulder-to-shoulder with Drew Angeloff. My first responsibility was to coordinate with the MS Hardware fabricators, external "interns" that were writing demos for us, and Nvidia who was producing us experimental graphics cards -- in order to produce what you guys know as the "Prototypes" or "Silver X's". So basically, when BillG and Seamus climbed on stage at GDC in March of 2000 to officially announce our existence, and it didn't go perfectly... it would have been *my* ass, and we wouldn't be having this story time right now LOL. If you heard stories about the prototypes being tossed down stairwells and such, well that was me. Now you're probably asking yourselves, "who is this dude and how come there isn't a mention of him in the book?"... well, simply put, really s**tty politics. I'll explain: I was actually hired about 8 months or so before into a product called "Commerce Server" (Bldg 25) as a newbie SDE/T through "Volt" (I was an "A Dash"). Just prior to my arrival, Microsoft had lost a huge court case over benefits and hours to their contractors. I had no part in all of that obviously, but it was such a cultural blow to the company that to this day you'll most likely still pick up on a vibe of animosity towards contractors. Back then it was, palpable. So when Dean Takahashi (sp?) was making his rounds around the office gathering materials for the "Opening The Xbox", he was specifically instructed not to talk to me or include me in any way. On record, Seamus totally went to bat for me, but "they" wouldn't have it. There was no way in hell some contractor puke was going to receive any positive publicity in light of the loss of the lawsuit , and moreover, the massive blow-to-the-corporate-ego that came with it. I've actually got some really cool stories about that time, so I'm working on putting together a little "addendum" to the story that I'll probably put out in some kind of e-book format. My fiancé has been busing my chops for the last couple years to "tell my part of the story", so I finally figured what the hell... there are enough people out there that would be entertained by it, and, I guess if I don't tell it, it just dies with me some day heh morbid!! Which brings me to my final bit and title of this post. I don't remember actually bringing it home with me, but, what you guys call the "Alpha" controller, has been living in a moving box that's been following me around all these years. Except this wasn't used on any dev kit, *I* used it when I was testing out the prototypes. Also, the dev kits didn't even exist at the time heh... I included a couple photos of it. The serial numbers on the back should tell you the rest. I figured it would be a shame to just have it live out it's days in some featureless cardboard moving box when it could be loved, appreciated, and shared. My days of working for big tech companies are more than over -- take a look at my banner image on my profile and that'll tell you why. So, since I'm trying to get a new 'reality capture' business off the ground down here where I live in Vegas, I figured why not auction it off. I'm probably going to take a few months to get all my stories typed out and compiled for the little e-reader I mentioned. But I'm of co got to save at least a couple surprises for that, but I'm happy to share whatever memories I still have with you guys, so ask away. Anyway -- Again this site is so cool to see; you all are runnin with a piece of what turned out to be a part of cultural history -- and a surreal confirmation that we actually did put something out in the universe that brought some happiness and fun experiences people.... happiness, and gamer-rage because "f*$k that! That was bu#(%*it!" [[*throws controller across living room*]] Ta-ta for now! Tob

  4. I was trying different modchips on the header and everything was the same, no output. That is, until I get to my xblast Aladdin. xblastos booted and I was like wtf? I ran the ram test there and everything said success. Although everything said success I had a feeling one of the rams must've been pulling a trick on the xblast test because nothing else was working besides xblastos. I removed all the ram and replaced with all new ram and the console works. I have no clue which ram went bad but one of them wasn't working. I was so close to scrapping the board. happy I didn't.

  7. My son and I realized that there were no OEM-style UnleashedX theme that met our standards, so we made our own! know I am late to the party, but if you want that original MS dashboard feel on a soft modded Xbox. Frontesque and I just built one that gets as close as you can get using an UnleadhedX modded Xbox. We call this new dash OEM-Unleashed. You can get it at the link below. https://github.com/Frontesque/OEM-Unleashed This is what it looks like. There is a side by side comparison with the official MS dash on the github page. https://raw.githubusercontent.com/Frontesque/OEM-Unleashed/main/images/preview.jpg

  8. I appreciate all the help you guys provided. Today I got the Startech IDE to Sata adapter, the 80 wire 40 pin ribbon cable and a 512 MB USB. Got all the EEPROM data thanks to your suggestion of using the OG Xbox 2021 disc, installed the components and formated the HDD as a regular retail Xbox HDD using FATXplorer, transferred the dashboard files to the HDD and it worked. 15 minutes later, the Xbox was working perfectly and softmodded thanks to the Rocky5 softmod. Thank you all! Now, I'll try to see if I can get my other Xbox to turn on again someday.

  9. You need to include the SDL libs in your project. Even though this video tutorial's not for VS 2003 but 2010, similar settings should be found in VS2003 to add SDL to your project. (NOTE: I have not tried doing this configuration setup yet.)

  12. Back in the old days I worked for Nintendo, my job was to fix the returned units, Nintendo collected them all up from retailers where customers had returned them, and we either repaired in the case of a customer wanting the original back because it was customer damage or out of warranty or Refurbed to s new. Repairs were mostly modular, so if say the speaker went on your Gameboy then the board was replaced with a brand new one, if the button board was faulty it got the same treatment.. As a tech you were supposed to chuck all teh electronics into a dump bin by the entrance to our dept one for plastics one for electronics and one for packaging. What actually happened was we all ended up with say a board with a speaker and a board with a processor fault, un soldered the speaker and swapped making a good board. Mash together all the other similarly salvaged parts and every tech of which there were 20 or so had a Gameboy,a Super Nintendo and a NES on their desk along with all the accessories , all built out of junk. I was an indicator on how long a tech had been therre as to how much he had built for “personal” testing on his or her bench. Management stopped it as they wantd everything thrown out. Any way fast forward to the X360 and PS3 era of RROD and YLOD. One of the referb centers ( by then all contracted out) was a client. I saw what they did. Crappy quick fix reflows in expensive reflow ovens, swapping boards and parts with known faulty units that were suposedly going to recycle. Quick air dusting of badly dusted up devices. Essentially slap it on the arse send it on its way bodge fixes. MS paid a lot of money for this and they were one of the bigger better companies. its no wonder so many X360 “official MS” repairs lasted hours or days.

  13. I've done it and it works just fine. This is the model I used: https://www.ebay.com/itm/291873933509 Main thing to consider is that SD cards are less reliable than hard drives or SSDs. If you get a good "industrial" SD card with high read/write durability, you should be fine, so long as you're not rewriting the entire card daily all the time. Folks earlier mentioned performance. IDE isn't a difficult bus to saturate in the current era. I wouldn't say that's a drawback here. SD cards are plenty fast, and the adapter can keep up just fine. And of course, you get the benefit of instant seek times like with other solid state media. These also don't support ATA security, so are not compatible with softmods. Aside from that, I found it convenient to be able to eject the SD card and put it into my laptop to manage stuff. Eaton was kind enough to update FATXplorer to support built-in SD card readers in laptops (as opposed to only external USB readers) after I reached out to him. Someone could even use an SD extension cable (like this) and make the card accessible without having to take apart the case each time. The only large items you'll realistically be copying where it doesn't make sense to use FTP is games, and the entire Xbox library can fit in a 2TB hard drive. Beyond initial setup where you might have a HDD hooked up to a PC for better speeds, you might be copying a few hundred MB or a couple gigs at a time for other random stuff normally, so it doesn't make much sense to choose this over a mechanical drive, but sure you can do it. I had a 128GB SD card in one of my boxes for a long time and had zero problems. Your mileage may vary. I also tried using it in place of my DVD drive, and while Cerbios claims to support dual-hard drives, there's no software that supports it so it's a no-go.

  18. 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.

  21. 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.

  23. 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

  24. 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

  27. >Easy XDK Installer V1.4.1< "Legitimate Edition" ------------------------------------------------------------- This is an easy way to turn your retail console into a debug kit. There are two main options: 1. Install the XDK dashboard as an "app", meaning that you will have the option to load the dash as an app which will be marked "XDK Launcher" in your apps list. This will boot the dash by booting a Debug version of Cerbios through PBL, which forces the load of the XDK dashboard. 2 "Standalone mode" wipes your C and E partitions and turns the console into a full-on debug kit. The installer also provides the means to flash a debug enabled Cerbios bios through this option. This should cover most case uses. However I will add features and modify the installer over time as I receive feedback. Also included is every single piece of software imaginable on the PC side. Everything from Windows XP itself, to Visual Studio 2003, to the XDK installer, and of course, the VMWare image is linked below. The XDK version numbers are a lie. 5849.16 is the latest version of the XDK. Please remember to download and install the virtualbox additions ISO. This makes the VM experience much more pleasurable and XP is better able to work with the VM software, also installing graphics drivers! I also invite you to try to use this installer after creating yourself a fully fledged development kit. It works perfectly for mine! Please do not use vx.dxt in your "DXT" folder. It serves no purpose and causes some things to not load and to crash. ------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------ Installer Link: Drive: https://drive.google.com/file/d/1VthT4LHLhR7Ds8fAff04eA4uLNe4-Xht/view?usp=drive_link VMWare XDK Image Link: https://drive.google.com/file/d/1Du_3Fk0s2gIYu9DBbMXabJiMSRf8KSK5/view?usp=drive_link VirtualBox Additions ISO: https://drive.google.com/file/d/1xXHHs7lNT9WeB_wWceMRpxi6a2CDtYu5/view?usp=drive_link -------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- 1.4.1 -Changed XML commentary, installer messaging and structure, as well as finishing readme's for each section and adding further explanation of operations so that people can have a better understanding of what is being done and how. -Added ability to say no to flashing Cerbios at the end of the Standalone installs. It is a hardcoded debug bios that is flashed. However, there is a debug ini that is installed anyway, so if you don't want to flash a hardcoded debug Cerbios for any reason, you will be given the choice not to flash and the debug ini will still enable you to boot into the XDK launcher. -Fixed a bug that copied the incorrect bios to HDD when selecting option to flash back to retail bios under "Back to Retail" section. 1.4.0. - Fixed a few more videos. DAMN XMV files. -.- - Added a boot menu where you have the option to launch this installer in different modes: -- Non BFM DHCP mode (Default!). -- Non BFM Static IP mode. -- BFM DHCP mode. -- BFM Static IP mode. - This disc and all the XBE's are now usable with the ENDGAME DVD Launcher if needed. - Added the option to install the 5849 XDB for XBox as App and Standalone. You now have the option to use use 4627 or 5849 as an App or Standalone if you like. -Removed vx.dxt (VerifierX) from 5849 XDK installs. It causes crashes with things like XBlast and PBL. It was causing the installer to crash when flashing with XBlast and trying to use the PBL "Retail" mode in the XDK Launcher.

  29. Yep, That is what @wiiggy is trying to do. I have tried many times to get this working and no joy. Although I haven't actually messed with any xml's or source code. I think the reason it doesn't work is down to XBMC being, at its heart, a media player. IIRC (its been a while since I messed with basic xbmc) the sources were always meant to be used for folders full of media (be that games, music, video etc) or for paths/urls for online sources for media or addons and never designed for actually launching a program/file directly. Hopefully Rocky will drop by and confirm this either way. I do know that you cannot use the XBMC4Gamers style _resources media in the root, but again that is down to XBMC itself.

  30. I bet 100 bucks you are using a 3rd party controller and not a genuine MS controller If this is the case, it will not work and you need to buy a genuine one to use xblast (or any Cromwell based bios). I think this is because of the known USB device IDs that are able to be enumerated.

  31. It's a bit tricky. I don't blame at all you for having difficulty with it! Here's a demonstration from a livestream I did a while back that shows my process. https://youtube.com/clip/UgkxeCA7Dd2O9cXykI6vwAv5_g_gMEFH3OgW?si=I-K26GYAtJ9DQLkX I take a flathead screwdriver (that is relatively thick) and insert it into between each of the 3 clips on one side of the faceplate then gently twist to remove the clips. Then while keeping pressure outwards so the clips don't re-attach, I undo the clips under the controller ports.

  34. Installed my @NeMesiS supplied XeniumICE Massive kit a few days ago, after some self inflicted confusion with the cable from the chip to the Massive Hub everything is now up and running perfectly. Chip has latest PrometheOS flashed to it and the console now looks like this... RGB lighting colours are selectable in PrometheOS. You can just make out the 3d printed housing for the Xerc sensor and status LED which seems to react to me pointing my iPhone camera at it lol...... The kit is super well made and easy to install. (Just be sure to use the correct supplied cables ;D) would recommend the XeniumICE chip and the massive kit 100%.

  40. 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

  42. 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.

  45. OGXbox Cerbios Disc 2.3.2 Created by Sweetdarkdestiny A very big thank you to sweetdarkdestiny for creating this other amazing piece of work. The original thread is here. This thread is basically a mirror. https://www.xbox-scene.info/forums/topic/382-ogxbox-cebios-disc/ THIS IS NOT THE OGXBOX INSTALLER DISC! PLEASE READ THE DESCRIPTION CAREFULLY! This the new Cerbios Disc 2.3.2. Build 03 This is disc started as a simple flasher made to make it easy as possible to flash the Cerbios. Now it's a fully grown installer which is up to date by this day. It not only provides every public available Cerbios bios in different flavors, it now provides you evey needed dash, app you name it. You have the option to launch this disc in 4 different modes: DHCP + Boot From Media Cerbios (BFM) bios. DHCP with your own bios which you have on the modchip/tsop. Static IP + Boot From Media Cerbios (BFM) bios. Static IP with your own bios which you have on the modchip/tsop. You also have the option to use XBlastOS, EvoX, GentooX or ResctooX to flash your modchip/tsop in any mode! This flasher also offers a simple option to go from a softmod to a TSOP flash for NTSC & PAL users. And it offers even more like the latest Team-Resurgent apps on it up to date to this posting. As well as apps from the XBox Preservation Project, Cerbios Intro Maker, CISO, Custom Cerbios Splash, Ram DeLimit & XBMC4Gamers / Emustation Artwork Stuff. UnleashX in a special version only available on this installer, Rocky5's latest XBMC4Gamers dash with additional skins and XBMC-Emustation build. There is also the option install/reinstall more apps (if needed). And like you may know from the OGXBox-Installer this disc here provides every repair option you can think of. Below I attached a couple of screens. And a massive shout out and HUGE THANKS goes to JadeSparrow for his support, suggestions and testing! You did an incredible job! Finally, here is the changelog or at least some parts of it. The changes we have made are massive! Boot Menu Added: The "Cerbios Archive" to it (Not using a BFM for this). And I removed it from the other main configs since there's no need for it to be there anymore. Added: The about & Infos section to the Boot Menu and removed it from the other configs since there's no need to have them in every config. It saves some lines of code and speeds up the boot slightly. - Added : Huh!

Cerbios Disc Changed : The Cerbios Disc skin. Changed : The BFM bios of the BFM Modes to 2.3.2 alpha. Changed : Instead of 4 configs for the 4 Cerbios disc modes we are now just use 2 for all 4 version. Archived by removing all BFM gimmicks like: Open Tray, Close Tray and such. It minimize the work to maintain all 4 modes by HUGE amount. Who has seen that coming? Changed/Added: A non BFM boot menu to avoid problems using a new blank HDD. I also added the options to launch this Disc in varius flavors. * Guess it's the best to do it that way for now. The main flasher will stay on the 2.3.1 till a beta of 2.3.2 or newer drop. I also added a lot of icons (still a lot missing). And I wrote a lot of txt files. Made a DVD Cover AND a "Cerbios Disc - Sort of Manual" (Still WIP). And a lot (!) more adds, fixes, changes. -------------------------------------------------------------------------- Fichier Download Folder : https://1fichier.com/dir/XpNkvkyV Mega Mirror: https://mega.nz/file/MvUyEJRC#cZsvQ5Dw7Bl-lZn9jbXoj4yCuQHsyJpvB3IClucG4X0 ------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------ This software package was created by @sweetdarkdestiny.
