  1. Already solved? OK, I was a bit slow at the topic. How ever, instead of using WinSCP just use FatXplorer 3.0 and copy your files right on your PC to your XBox HDD. That way you are much faster (~1/2 of the time saved)

  2. Have you formatet your HDD twice? ( If not you have to! ) Does XBPartitioner shows a error [ER] on your partition?

  4. Here is a little beginner tutorial about how you can overclock your EvoX bios using WulfyStylez XBOverclock tool. First of, download the XBOverclock tool. Download incl. bioses : https://1fichier.com/?qdelzlqfg0dp58scr67a Download from Github without bioses : https://github.com/WulfyStylez/XBOverclock Now extract the file. You should now have a folder called “xboverclock”. (In case you downloaded my upload. If not rename the folder to xboverclock) For this “tutorial” we place the extracted folder in C:\ ( C:\xboverclock\... ) Screenshot 1: https://imgur.com/a/MmkTuzo Now open a command prompt and enter the folder by typing “ cd c:\xboverclock “ and hit enter. You can now check for the files if you want by typing “ dir “. You should now see all the files in that folder. Screenshot 2 : https://imgur.com/a/a35fEkO Now we are going to create our own overclocked EvoX bios. This is the command with STOCK values : " xboverclock -nv 233 -fsb 133 -o EvoXm8plusOC.bin EvoXm8plus.bin ". NOTE: “ -nv 233 ” is the GPU. Base value of it is 233MHz. Change this value to what ever you want but don’t go crazy! Best is to rise it step by step 1 or 2 MHz and test the bios. “ -fsb 133 “ is the value for the CPU FSB. In our case it`s 133MHz. Like mentioned above, don’t rise this value to much. #Babysteps! So go with 1 - 2 MHz at a time and test the bios. “ -o EvoXm8plusOC.bin EvoXm8plus.bin “ This will tell the tool that it should use the bios “ EvoXm8plus.bin “ and output the overclocked bios as “ EvoXm8plusOC.bin “. So let’s recap with a little example line and a 2 MHz overclock for the CPU-FSB & GPU. A valid OC command could look like this : “ xboverclock -nv 235 -fsb 135 -o EvoXm8plusOC.bin EvoXm8plus.bin “ Now it’s time for you to decide what values you like to test. For this tutorial let’s grab the line from the note above and type in your command prompt : “ xboverclock -nv 235 -fsb 135 -o EvoXm8plusOC.bin EvoXm8plus.bin “ and hit enter. You should now see the output like in the screen below. Sceenshot 3 : https://imgur.com/a/joL0krn You made it. The xboverclock folder should now contain a new bios file named EvoXm8plusOC.bin which you can flash to your mod chip. Note: Do not edit this bios now with e.g. EvTool because that will reset the OC to defaults. So in case you need to make changes to the boot order do it before you overclock the bios! And some words of warning. Don't expect any wonders. In most cases you will not benefit from the overclock. It’s mainly made for emulators and not for games. In some cases you gain 1 or 2 frames in games and in some cases games will run to fast even with this small overclock. So you would need to patch these games xbe’s for the new clock speeds. And yes, it’s a lot of work testing out how far you can go with your overclock (every XBox is different which means, it works for me but, it may didn’t work for you) and a lot of trail and error which in some cases could brick your XBox. So do never ever flash these bioses to a TSOP – NEVER! Do not flash these bioses to a single bank mod chip like Aladdin, LPC/Cheap Mod etc. without having a external flasher on hand to flash back a working bios or without having a second SST chip laying around to perform a hot flash. This is a SERIOUS warning and no joke! So bottom line, is it worth the hassle? Nope. It’s more or less a proof of concept and something to play with for us neerds and nothing for the casual user. But that’s just my opinion and you may think differently about that which is totaly fine. Finaly we have reached the end of this small “tutorial/overview”. Have fun and please don't brick your XBox by doing stupid things! PS. Here is a short YT video I have made where you can see all the stuff above in action instead of pictures : https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pMNSfDFsiQs PPS. You can download this “tutotial” here as PDF if you like (Incl. Pictures :D ) : https://1fichier.com/?jahpi6lewhdxynf5va2f PEACE!

  6. Listing of materials tested: OSSC V1.6 Chimeric HDMI Konig component Full RGB AV+optical Composite original Pound (2020) Mcable gaming Mclassic Monster component x400 Monster component x200 Variety of wall chargers and HDMI cables All the combinations and configurations had tested. Tested with 4 TV and two Xbox : V 1.6 no modded, V1.0 XBMC ( when it was possible, but no one did consequential differences ) Winner! Xbox+Chimeric+Mclassic (green led (alimented wall)) +Mcable gaming (alimented wall). Explanation The monster component x400 was a little better than konig component, and the monster x200 was like composite because the three plugs are video x1 and stereo x2. Not three RGB like I had thinking. Next, I tested all settings of the OSSC expecting upgrade my video with a HDMI solution. The picture was worst than the monster. With the good material, perhaps it's possible. But the OSSC loose always a part of the signal, event it is alimented. The pound (with mini usb port) was very poor. Yes, it's very better than composite but: Green filter. Not very sharp etc. But it's wasn't a problem because I had bet all on the Chimeric. Finaly, I recived the chimeric, and horror, the monster component smashes far more once again , with is colors very realistic and the picture very compatible with the signal source. I pluged the Mcable and the Mclassic, but this changed nothing. I thinking pass all my life with monster x400. There was some additionnal issues like horizontal lines "flapping" or noise in the textures. After to have expected an issus of fabrication, I Shipped an message to Chimeric system. Before to receive a response, I had set up the stuff again, and this is it! It work fine. Mclassic was alimented in the pc port, but we need to put it in the wall. We need to find the perfect Tv setting too because the signal is different of any sources. So the best mode need to be (desatured with wider spectrum. All spectrum of light and colors). Now it is better than the monster component. And better than the chimeric only. The stuff do all that it must to do. But, after that, I upgraded the output video another time with an astuce. I bought some different wall charger more powerful and the video become consequently much higher. Now with the good wall charger. It's a masterpiece. How setting this Winning combination. Xbox dashboard- Audio : Use Stereo if you have 2 speakers (or stereo+DTS). Souround + dolby for 5 speakers. Mclassic: Mode green. Alimented by a wall charger 5v- 1.8 A. Little bit hight or less. Mcable Gaming: Alimented by a wall charger 5v -2.4 A Tv(Flat): Here my setting for exemple : Contraste 100, Brillance 63, Couleur 50, Netteté 100, image-ia EF, cats HF, reduc HF If the TV has more pixels than the video source, zoomed in will not do appear new details in the pictures, but increase the sharpenes and clarity of theirs . See picture 1-2. A higher format TV will provide more sharpeness and natural with this set up. But it's the inverse result with a cheap ultra-HD tv. Picture 3-4. The winnig TV was : 1080p Panasonic TC-L32U3. Second place : Panasonic TC-L32X5. The two other TV ultra Hd (were very bad) : LG 47LN5750-UH and SAMSUNG UN50TU7000F The V1.6 xbox, with Panasonic tv and Chimeric, added vertical shadow lines with halo 2 and halo 1 on the sky and on the pale background textures. But nothing else. It run perfectly since 2004. The V1.0 XBOX XBMC added horizontal artefacts with all the games and emulators. But don't has the precedent problem with the shadow lines. His cd drive works poorly. The second best set up was : Pound alimented wall (with the same settings and stuff) . Only switch the chimeric by the Pound. For exemple, the set up with Chimeric seem that. The monster component x400 do the best picture and sound for easy and low budget. And the colors are more natural than the Pound. Konig: AV component RGB+optical in one. Show details clear. Dont't blur. But did a video quality inferior than Monster x400. The V1.6 OSSC : With all the settings, in x1 and x2 too, and with two TV, did the signal and the colors loose their intensity. The picture was pale and bleach. And in X1, there was no global difference compared good component (except the previews problems). In x2, the game was pixelised like 2D 1987 games, without degrad. He was made for keep the squarred pixels of old console. He was not made for the Xbox or consoles 480p or more. Audio problems : Not make to transfer the best audio possible because he can not out put the audio by HDMI. To plug somewhere, it need an extra connector because the input is a jack 1/8. and that cause a losing of signal. He is not do for the Xbox or console 480p or more. Good Generique HDMI cable: Make the stone texture more natural than the mcable gaming, but was less good for the shiny-lustred surfaces and did the picture more pixelised. The mcable gaming did the surfaces that was clear or polish (like water, electricity, and metal) more realistic and upgraded. Halo2 has textures 3d-like based on the details of mapping. So, when I added extra signal boost with the wall chargers, and used the mcable gaming, it was like if new textures was appears. Chimeric: Added red filter with the TC-L32U3 TV, and perhaps very little with the samsung TV . He did thin shaded lines in the bleach textures of Halo2 with the V1.6 xbox. Pound: Added green filter impossible to remove completly. Plus has the same issu than the chimeric (horizontal shaded lines) but this lines were only with halo 2 on the panasonic TC-L32U3 and the xbox V1.6) Mclassic : Works with all. TV Cartoon too. Need wall charger of 1.8 A (approximately). The two modes don't affect the defenition. Only the resolution. Audio Souround 5.1=5 speakers . Stereo=two speakers. That mean that dolby souround on XBOX is useless if you don't have the stuff. Note that the sound was really better with a good component than with the composite. But, I noticed no audio differences between monster and this winning set up. My external stereo speakers cleared the sound compared to my internal tv speakers. If you want speakers, you need receiveur Yamaha. Speakers only don't work. If you want for gaming, select the speakers with a natural sound, and did for classic-JAZZ musics. Games need hight frequency sound ( metalic, robots, cars crash, bullet impacts, shield, bird cry, wind, radio, snap-crunch). And take speakers that have not box shape, to have realistic sound. I am using a Yamaha receiver R-s300 with two small Paradigm that have a rounded plastic shape. Finaly, the https://makemhz.com/ seems to be better than the chimeric. So I will change the chimeric for it and keep all the settings and materials in this set up. Thanks SS_Dave for help.

  7. OK I will check that in a few hours. One last thing for now, you can set up C & E only which will no touch your F&G partion in any way, maybe you check out that option. When you read through topic you can see that option has saved some ppl. How ever I'm out for now and I report back later.

  8. Just a quick little update with some little fixes and updates on the OGXBox Installer 2021 which is now v1.5.4. The new version can be downloaded from the folder links on page one. AND a little heads up, the installer sadly didn't work on XEMU anymore which isn't my fault. It worked up to XEMU v0.6.0. All later versions stuck at the XBox loading screen. Hope that get fixed in later versions of XEMU since the I have added a massive support for it in the upcomming v2.0 of OGXBox. Would be a sad thing if this will not get fixed. So if you like to set up a HDD for XEMU using this installer get hands on a older version (provided in my PC apps pack for example). After that you can use the HDD in newer versions of XEMU.

  9. Thanks, I was looking at it and just when I was ready to try I gave Xplorer360 a last chance. Just then I managed to connect it with Xplorer360 and moved in the softmod installer files. The trick was apparently to totally unplug the USB-IDE connector from the USB and then do quickly the swap... or at least so I think. what it matters is that I backed up the eeprom and I am ready to mod thank you for your help!

  10. Can you tell which XML file it was so I can fix that without reading through all the XML files? I will also fix the PDF problem. And I will also fix the problem with to long files names for the trainers. EDIT: Found it. It was the unleashx config.xml (entry under Dashboards). The one under XBMC will still work fine. How ever it's fixed as well as the PDF. Now I'm on the trainers. The new upload will be named :"OGXBox Installer 2021 - v1.5.3 beta 2 For FatXplorer + XBoxHDM" and I upload it when I'm done with the trainers.

  11. This file is simply amazing. I tried and works !! I just found minor problems: Theres one pdf with "+" in his name, some trainers with "+" in their names too and some with exceeded 256 characters. I just rename them. And in one xml, "emustation" is erroneous labeled "emstation", making the shortcut to fail in dash. But again, excelent work!!!

  12. Hmmm.... I like to hear that your error 16 is gone by just formating it with fatxplorer. So that will verify what I thought. Funny side note, the same will work with XBoxHDM but I'm not to sure why it fixes the error 16 problem. Not so nice is that you are not be able to set up your HDD with the installer. When you set up the HDD using the large HDD set up option everthing should be copied over and not just some files - which is totaly wierd. How ever, the upload I made yesterday contains all dashboards (incl. MS Dash), the most usefull apps XBMC4Gamers, XBMC, Emustation ect. in the right location blablabla.... So after you have copied the content of the included C folder to your root if your C partition and the content of the E folder to your E partition your XBox should boot up without a problem (like I wrote in the inlcuded PDF).

  13. I use Xblast and the Net Flash option Why not use Fatxplorer to format then copy C and E files and a XBMC4Gamers as mentioned earlier, No DVD drive needed , Or you can use a PC DVD drive in place of the Xbox DVD drive to read a install disk .

  14. I tested a 2tb last night it formats F drive to 1tb and G drive takes the rest (831gb approx.) And it will format a 3tb to F and G drives to the maximum of 1tb (1024gb) each. I checked the HDD with Xpartitioner 1.3 and there was no errors so no need to use XBpartitoner 1.3 Cheers SS Dave Soft modding is like masturbating, It gets the job done but it's nothing like the real thing.

  15. Format the new HDD with FATXplorer 3.0 beta then copy the clean C and E files to there respective drives, Then down load the pre built Xbmc4gamers from rocky5's GitHub and copy that to E drive, Now fit the HDD to the Xbox and it should boot straight to Xbmc4gamers. The EvoxM8+ cee 67 noDVD (X4G) bios is set to boot to xbmc4gamers from E:xbmc/default.xbe in it's boot list.

  16. Thanks, everyone's been great help, now my Xbox is great, the MS Dash works again after FTPing over the dash files,my 2TB drive is working well and filled up with stuff already, I can use the button combo to reboot from anything and it goes back to UnleashX and I've got it flashed with a 480P M8 bios so my HDTV works well off the HDMI adapter, no issues there at all, everything is great. I just have to tackle that capacitor, hopefully all goes well and I don't destroy the XBox I think shipping on the capacitors will be a month or two by the looks of it. At least it works fine without doing it, I haven't found any issue it's causing so far.

  17. There is a wire connected to the BT point on the mod chip that's going to the front of the Xbox. Remove it from the front of the Xbox and connect to ground (pin 2) or put it under one of the screws that hold the main board down. This will force the mod chip to be always active.

  23. There's something weird with the Def Jam FFNY files - as said both the HDD Ready ones work from DVD-RW discs on my primary Xbox (chipped) but DVD2Xbox just won't install them from the same discs. FTPing in a HDD Ready version and it works fine. But I've just been testing DVD-R discs (XISOs created from those same HDD Ready files) with two softmods and the same chipped machine. None of them worked! I was suspicious of the DVD-R batch I was using (Maxell); the first disc gave a verification error with ImgBurn. Only time I've had that is with a bad batch. But I tested two other disc from the batch with a XISO of Xbox game: Black (small size so ideal for a quick burn) and they booted fine on all three Xboxes I'm testing. The bad disc must have been a rogue. I've also proved to my own satisfaction its not the burners (two different lightly used ones tested) or ImgBurn. Wasted five or six discs doing this but all the Def Jam FFNY DVD-Rs using the same XISO that works using DVD-RW on my chipped Xbox's Hitachi disc drive do much the same thing on all three machines (the two softmods use Samsung B and Philips). They take an unusually long time to be recognised and that sometimes fails. But when they are and can be launched (both XBMC and UX dashes tested) they immediately stick at the Def Jam FFNY loading screen and eventually give a dirty disc error. I've never had any DVD-R burn fail to boot except when there was a disc media fault. I just can't explain why DVD-RW burns work from disc on my Hitachi disc drive but you can't install them using DVD2Xbox. It just doesn't make any sense. With that and the other testing evidence I'd say don't try to install or play this game from burned disc. FTP it in only. I'd also suggest that if Shxlx006 use DVD2Xbox at any point he uses a file manager and finds the DVD2Xbox UDATA/TDATA save entries there and deletes them. Delete E:\CACHE too and any temporary game content on X, Y and Z. I'd also remove any Def Jam FFNY game install that has been made and start again cleanly by FTPing in a HDD Ready version. DVD2Xbox UDATA/TDATA ID is 0facfac0 but check that just to be sure they are the correct folders. The TDATA one should contain metai.d2x and a settings.d2x files. If you're not using the default skin doing this will revert it to default but otherwise there's no problem. Both DVD2Xbox's default UDATA and TDATA folders will regenerate on next boot.

  26. I did format twice, but something seems to have gone wrong. XBPartitioner was showing ER for F and G. Repartitioning and reformatting still resulted in ER. To solve it, I had XBPartitioner remove G, repartition and format, then re-add G. Now it's showing 64 for both volumes. Not sure how it got in to this state, but hopefully this fixes things. Kicking off the upload again. Thanks!

  27. I have checked varius single dashboard installs incl. "make dash default" etc. and what can I say other as it works like intended. Here you can see it (I have not recorded all but trust me, they work without errors) : https://youtu.be/E8WGgoboe3M So that makes me wonder why you have these problems. Everthing you posted about your config reads fine. And because your HDD is IDE and not SATA we can it's not the fault of an adapter or because of an missing 80 wire cable. The HL drive is also pretty good but it may have a dirty laser so you could start to clean the lens and check again. One thing, you wrote you use the UX bios which will copy shortcuts for UnleashX. And the error above is when the installer tries to replace shortcuts to make (for example) EvoX default. So installer ask "Do you like to make it your default dash" and you can hit no and the install will quit without a massage (thats fine). But you would still need a working shortcut for your bios on C:\. But, thats very simple because I have included all shortcuts as XBE file as well (better save than sry right?). So if you browse the DVD (Live apps - 1.1. Launch X-Box File Explorer UX) you can go to D:\misc\shortcuts\. There you see a lot of folders. Open the folder of the dash you like to make your default dashboard. Now you see a file called " evoxdash.xbe ". When you copy this file to the root of your C / E drive that dashboard is your default dash on boot (since you used the c:\evoxdash bios) and it works also for all other dashboards which can simply be changed by replacing that one shortcut (xbe).

  28. yes! u can clone your current drive to a new hdd and lock the new one to your motherboard. use a program called chimp to clone and lock the new drive. i have done this several times and it works great! there are some risks involved if u don't know what you're doing though. it only requires a softmod and it sounds like u already have that. and not a dumb question. i'm not certain about madmatigna's method.

  32. Sounds like the sata adaptor has failed as you can see the SSD drive on a PC and the Xbox loads from the original hard drive. You should be using a 80 way IDE cable anyway for data reliability and I would try that before reformatting the SSD.

  33. @sweetdarkdestiny So it seems this did the trick! I formatted with FatXplorer then was able to boot the new drive with the Installer! I did the AIO Setup for the new large hdd After copying everything over, it brought me to XBPartitioner I reduced both F/G partitions by 2GB, formatted them (~925MB) After I quit XBPartitioner it appears to have been caught in a bit of boot loop for the Installer? Not sure if this was my dvd drive acting up or not and was unable to read the disc, it just kept showing the "Loading" screen then went black, then "Loading". I power cycled, and without the installer disc it booted into xmbc4xbox (I'm assuming since my current bios first tries evoXdash.xbe) Ran XBPartioner1.3 from E:\Apps and increased the size of the two partitions (F/G) to 927MB and formatted. Just for fun I tried to launch the stock dashboard from the File Manager in xbmc4xbox: C:\xboxdash.xbe When I tried to do that, i was given Error 21? So it seems I'm marking progress... got two things to figure out now: Need to set my default dash to XMBC4Gamers Find out why it errored out trying to boot the stock dash?

  34. Here is a new bios ( https://1fichier.com/?aql1w6g1ny0p3qd1yggl ). It will boot XBMC4Gamers right away from boot of E:\XBMC4Gamers\ If that fails it searches for the evoxdash.xbe on C and if that also fails it boot up the rescue dash. And yes it also shows the flubbery flubber animation like you wished. And format your blank HDD with FatXplorer before you drop it into your XBox (Only format nothing more!). That solved a problem one time and I would bet 1 cent it would do the trick again.

  36. Using IGR resets the Xbox which will again require a long power button press to enable the modchip. The modchip is not getting a long button press so it is disabled and booting the stock BIOS which is trying to load the MS dashboard which is failing. Is the front panel eject ring solid green when it does this? Which version of Xbox is it? P.S. The fix - @SS_Dave gave the solution to permanently enable the modchip in a previous post.

  42. Just finished testing Avalaunch skin "bootimage.png" on a SID/AID softmod and, again, this time they worked no problem as for the chipped machine ie. just copy the skin's "bootimage.png" or your own to the main Avalaunch folder and reboot. Still can't work out why it didn't work before but it certainly does now with both Avalaunch 49.3 v137 and v142. The v137 copy I have has release notes saying it is v137 but that does not always mean anything as often such notes are left in without adding the new release information. I've even come across some Xbox software where the changelog header title is still v.XXX but contains the changelog for more several more recent updates. Avalaunch 49.3 v142, at least the three copies I have checked, downloaded from different sources, don't have release notes or any other way of identifying the version build on the Xbox. But that was the last version AFAIK so chance are that is what most people are using if they have Avalaunch. What matters is that the method described for replacement of the embedded bootimage with an alternative, which could just be a blank one, works in all cases.

I've downloaded it twice and it won't unrar, incomplete archive, I'm trying the one on 1fichier.com now but at first glance it seems to be complete as the file size is significantly bigger.

  44. did you mean to link to old xboxhdm_1.9 (https://www.xbox-hq.com/html/download-file-1138.html) or a newer 2.2a release (https://sourceforge.net/projects/xboxhdm2/files/xboxhdm2/Release 2.2/XBOX_HDM_2.2a.7z/download). XboxHDM 1.9 Tutorial - https://www.se7ensins.com/forums/threads/using-xboxhdm-updated-2019.1902/ Get the C files here link is not longer available - theisozone.com shutdown a few years ago. However, the file is accessible from mediafire.com - Clean_C_and_E_Files_for_Xbox.7z. This tutorial may work for 2.2a too. It's been a long time since I used these older releases to remember.

  45. Poking around on the Internet I did find a few files to update Avalaunch. latestversions.txt: core 0.49.3.142 rls142.zip language 1.0 languages_1.zip defaultskin 1.2 DefaultSkin_2.zip xml 1.0 avalaunchxml_1.zip From this list, I did come across two of the files: rls142.zip extract and rename Dashboard.xbe in this Zip achive to replace/update Avalaunch's default.xbe DefaultSkin_2.zip replace the media/skins/Default folder's content with the files in this Zip archive. The other two files were not found. They may be the same versions that came with the Xmas release. Haven't found where Avalaunch stores the version numbers of all these files to know when it should have downloaded an update for them. The URL stored in the default.xbe file where the updates were located is no longer accessible.

  46. I did a more in-depth review of the images in the original post. The v1.0 console has a stock Seagate 10GB hard drive installed. (MS formatted them to use only the standard 8GBs of space) @R1CKSO, do you happen to have a copy of the ZXBInstaller Installer disc? Edit: I did a bit of web searching and found several different versions of ZXBInstaller available from links that are posted on several YouTube videos. Watch on YouTube the ZXBInstaller 4.5 Revisión 2 XBOX Clásico video. Links to download the v4.5 and older v3.3.1 release are found in the description of this video. For the v4.5 release to be accessed on mega.nz, the 5 at the end of the URL must be removed. If you don't, it asks for a decryption key. https://mega.nz/folder/KvYAyCKC#RbT60sQToHp4-N6yPaXCqA5 The key is already present but wrong with that extra digit/character, 5, on the end of it. So, it should be https://mega.nz/folder/KvYAyCKC#RbT60sQToHp4-N6yPaXCqA The YouTuber juanfrancisco1405 has several other videos in Spanish about modding and repairing original Xbox's and for older releases of the ZXBInstaller. As does, DJThunder1281.

  47. Just wanted to add to the conversation that using conductive paint works very well. Early in my adventures of hard modding, I ruined a motherboard beyond repair even trying the alternate soldering points. Since then I have gotten really good at solding, but there is always a chance things might go wrong. The paint works just like the solder does, but you can't pull a pad, have your soldering iron too hot, etc. If you mess up, the paint can easily be removed for you to try again. I got it from Amazon for $13 https://www.amazon.com/dp/B00KBXT6JW?psc=1&ref=ppx_yo2_dt_b_product_details *obviously if you have a v1.6 and need a mod chip, then the paint is a no go

  48. Hey, So I have been a lurker on here for the past 3 months, Often its been alot of you guys that have helped me diagnose issues and fix them(Reading post with the same problems etc haha), So I thought I would make my first post today showing my consoles, I am going to be taking my pictures that I posted on Instagram of my consoles and explaining them, One thing is that I have tried to avoid very very rare consoles under ~1000 made since I will be moving from here in Australia to the US so I can't spend that type of money often so I don't really want to be shipping some $3000 console half way across the world haha. I keep my collection going by fixing, modifying and selling original xbox's. I apologize for the horrible quality, I wish I knew what I did with the original photo, but this is my Halo 2 Asia, I purchased the console from Taiwan, The seller very generously gave me PRG2 NTSC-J Sealed (The Chinese version) which is my first sealed game (I don't really care for sealed games but I am not going to open one). Ever since I got mine I haven't seen one for sale again, The motherboard revision is 1.6A, It came with a Hitachi DVD drive (According to the last owner he replaced the DVD drive) My Dead or Alive Ultimate Original Xbox, I purchased this console kind of on a whim, I wanted to buy a mountain dew and I ended up seeing this and buying it instead because I decided to wait the 2 years until I am in the US so I don't have to pay somewhere around $175 to import one (That's shipping plus GST and other random taxes) , I found this console for sale much cheaper than the other ones for sale, I am so thankful I did, Ever since I received it I have done some tasteful upgrades, First it is now TSOP flashed, I personally think flashing these consoles is a good thing as it makes preserving the console easier and also I don't ever plan on selling my consoles so I don't care if it affects value (Which I am pretty sure it doesn't). I have alot of access to Xbox hardware since I sell a lot of Xbox's so I upgraded the DVD drive in the console to a Hitachi drive (from the original Thompson). I have a 2TB to install in it so I can rip my games to it. Believe it or not, The mfg date is in 2004 but it has got a 1.0 motherboard. My 3 crystals, Which seems a bit excessive but I actually have an explanation for, One of them (The one up front) is a Crystal Limited Edition, Which I paid the same price as any normal crystal for, The 2 up back are normal crystals, One is a 1.4 which is TSOP flashed with iND 5.3k and has a 160GB HDD I stole from my PowerMac G4 and the 2nd is a 1.6 ModChipped console, The 1.6 is to go to my girlfriend when we move in together after I finish my Diploma, The 1.4 was a console that I restored, I got it completely rusted out with busted cap's but I got my hands on new RF shielding and replaced them caps and now she works and ofc being an Australian I need the Australian Xbox (Crystal LE) . My Debug Kit, I have always wanted one of these consoles, MVG made me want one so you best believe when I got my chance for a decent deal (In Australia for one) I got it, I forked out somewhere around $350USD for this console, It was my first expensive collectable xbox, Luckily for me some Aussie bloke owned it and was selling it, I don't need to go over the differences cause you all probably know them, Its my favourite console, Now I think the best looking is the DoA but this is my favourite console out of all the ones I own. Its has DoAXBV on it so I really need to find my IDE HDD adaptor so I can dump the contents and compare them but I believe it may be a retail copy since the last owner said he replaced the HDD, Also funny memory with this one, the seller chucked it in one big Aus Post box put some bubble wrap on top and put another box on top and tapped it over but hey it came in one piece so I can't complain. My Skeleton Black consoles, Unlike the crystal's I don't have a good reason for owning 2, I just saw 2 for good deals (Really one was a steal and one was meh), I think they look amazing, When I move however one will be going to my brother, I wanted to own 2 but my brother really wants one but he can't afford one right now, So I've told him I will give him a steal on one when I move, Bottom one is flashed with iND 5.3k and I upgraded the DVD drive to a Philips, They are both 1.0. My Halo Special Edition, This console probably means the most to me, Since it was the first one, It was the one to start it all, Me and my brother got ours at the same time, A mate gave him one for free and I paid $200AUD for mine (Look at eBay prices now, Pretty good deal if you ask me), The controller on the console didn't come with it, I brought that controller myself, The console has a WD 500GB SATA Drive in it to hold my games, The Motherboard is a 1.2, It is TSOP flashed, It has a x2 BIOS on it that pretty much doesn't let you do anything haha (Probably a very early one, The original owner lifted both pads for enabling write on the TOSP, I have been planning to just run a jumper wire but I have been busy. My Chinese version of Mech Assault, I am a simple man, I collect Original Xbox consoles and that's it, I own around 70 games but they are just games I have got along the way (I own my favourites ofc , This is the first very rare game I went looking for, Lucky me I found the game for sale on Yahoo Auctions and brought it through Sendico (Not a bad service just expect to pay when it comes to shipping) Obvs I have talked about TSOPing NTSC-J Consoles on this post and this is how, I understand swapping the HDD to a PC during error screens and modchips etc but I wanted the game, I just want a reliable way to mod NTSC-J consoles, Yes this game works, I have softmodded 2 NTSC-J consoles no problem with this game, I payed an arm and a leg for the game but I think its worth it. I also own maybe 7 black original xbox's but they will be sold soon so they aren't really a part of my collection and I think everyone here has a seen a black original xbox, The only console I would say I am after right now is a mountain dew but as I said earlier I am in no rush to get one, As for how these consoles get stored, I have a shelf in my room with the Crystals but the rest are stacked on my desk next to me, I play all of my consoles (Expect the Debug Kit haha). If you have any question's I don't mind answering them although I am not big on the how much did you pay for this etc just because I hate feeling like I am fLeXing my consoles haha, I don't know if listing my Instagram is against the rules here so I won't but umm its in every picture hahaha, I watermark my pictures so they don't get stolen by other people since I know all about that on Instagram. Also big thanks to thePiratePimp for being the first person to follow me on Instagram and now twitter and for reminding me to post here and stop being a damm lurker hahaha, Also yes these pictures were taken in my mother's garden before anyone mentions it .

  49. After looking through hundreds of UnleashX skins, I picked 10 of my favorites. There are actually 18 skins as some had multiple color releases and a few dups from old Xbox skin sites. From the various skin packages I accumulated from various sources, these now defunct sites had some skins listed under slightly different names (some I guess by the number the skin was submitted to their site). I've also updated a couple to show free space on the G drive. 01 - devise2 found under 2 different names 02 - tarozax - original and my G free space updated 03 - UXH2 04 - Athloni's MSDash 3 color variations - 2 Green 05 - TrueMSdash 2.0 (2 names) 06 - InfraSkin Cyan 07 - NINJA GAIDEN HI-TECH 08 - Optima_Blue_V2 - 2 names same skin 09 - UnleashX_Hackedbox_v1.0 and my GFree update 10 - Ice (Smoke Series) UnleashX Skins-My Top 10-KaosEngineer.7z

  50. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cyfbxuMgI4M&t=480sHello everyone! First post, and happy to be here. I want to share something that will add value to the community. I've put together a video tutorial on how you can install games directly to the XBOX HDD through the internet and FTP. All you'll need is your softmodded XBOX, an Ethernet cable, and the HDD Ready games you want on the HDD. You'll be up and running with it in no time. Full how-to video is below. Please let me know if this video helps you so that I can make XBOX content that makes your gaming experience more enjoyable. Thanks, Blaine https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cyfbxuMgI4M&t=480s
