  1. HeXEn does nothing, it's not made to da anything useful. There are some steps you have/can to do. OPTION 1 1. Create a shortcut with XBE Shortcut maker 2.0 which point to your first dash XBMC4GAMERS (e.g. E:\XBMC4GAMERS\default.xbe) Name of the XBE should be evoxdash.xbe 2. Create a shortcut with XBE Shortcut maker 2.0 which point to your second dash XBMC ORIGINS (not to sure where you have it so maybe : E:\XBMC\default.xbe) Name of the XBE should be evoxdash.xbe 3. Copy the files in place. Copy one to C:\ and the other to E:\ 4 Edit the cerbios.ini and the ind.ini and point one to C:\evoxdash.xbe and the other to E:\evoxdash.xbe OPTION 2 Edit the cerbios.ini and point the first boot entry to the dash you like to boot " E:\XBMC4GAMERS\default.xbe" Edit the ind.inind point the first boot entry to the dash you like to boot "E:\XBMC\default.xbe" or "E:\XBMC Origins\default.xbe" (Again idk the path for your install here). Both options will work fine. And at the end it didn't realy matter whcih one you pick.

  6. Yes 5 min. incl coffee. I did it a couple of times. And recently I also desoldered and dumped some TSOP's of some (4) LG 8163b drives (Same pitch just a little smaller sized TSOP). When I have boards that can't be fixed I also desolder the TSOP and eeprom for spares. You never now if you need one, one day. At the end, everthing comes down to how much skill you have. Good equipment is just a part of it. It makes things eayser but you can do the most jobs (Incl. RAM upgrades) with a 2 in 1 station for 100 bucks and a magnifier if you have the skill.

  7. Is it possible to put ST or Windbond instead of it? Or solder and flash on the TL866 2 Plus programmer on TSOP32. They have some kind of contact that is blocking the recording

  9. The HD Pack cable had optical, so I know there are traces I can hook up a port to on the motherboard, logically. I swear I saw a guide on this on xbox-scene like, 15 years ago, but no tutorials exist anymore. I will keep looking, but if anybody has the answer, I would appreciate some insight.

  10. unleashx does report wrong readings. install XBMC instead, and use xbox 360 inspired blades skin.

  11. In the end I changed the guage wire I was using to rebuild the LPC port, and reworked all the solder joins like you suggested. Thank you kindly for your advice and help, I can happily say I now have three working hard modded xboxs, although the aladdin XT Plus2 chips I ordered from a New Zealand company contain the fake SST 002A chip, so I have ordered some real 020A chips to pop in and reflash them. Next to get Halo:NHE (sever) working, any advice? Does it run different on a 1.6 or 1.0 motherboard?

  12. It is dependent on the airflow around the console, ambient temperature and fan speed but those are not untypical of what UnleashX will report in hot weather 30°+C with the fan at the default setting x1 (20%). I've never had to increase the speed of the fan beyond x2 (40%) to keep the temperatures <60°C (just) even on the hottest UK summer days as there were this year with ambient temperatures often above 40°C. Check what XBMC reports under the same conditions and if after a couple of minutes that is still showing temperatures >60°C with the fan at x2 (40%) then there is cause for concern. But if not don't worry too much. Keep an eye on the temperature and it does not drop in cooler ambient conditions or goes above 65°C action is needed. No doubt some here will say you should replace the thermal paste but as others here will attest that rarely has any dramatic effect on the reported temperatures.

  14. TruHeXEn 2021 To all those wanting a proper update to my release of TruHeXEn 2020, you've finally got one Massive thanks to user "sweetdarkdestiny" here on ogxbox forums for the very strong push to getting a proper release out. Without their effort at attempting to clean HeXEn's old code, this update would have taken much longer. This update mainly consists of general housekeeping changes to how HeXEn traditionally got tasks accomplished. Just about every aspect of the scripts has had some level of optimizations done to them to make this the fastest booting/cleanest HeXEn disc to date. All of the original features of TruHeXEn 2020 have been maintained as well as having a few outdated systems replaced. Winbond/Sharp tsop flashing is now handled by Xblast OS instead of Resctoox for example. *noDvd m8 Bios added back to the flashing menu *IND-5003 replaced with the Xiso patched version *Updated Eeprom Nulling tool added. One specific to each system (Tsop/Modchip and Softmod Systems) The biggest change any long time user of HeXEn will notice right off the bat is the massively improved boot times. This was accomplished by splitting up HeXEn into two parts. Upon booting HeXEn will by default load into the menu specifically for Tsop/Modchip systems. There is a new option first in the list to reboot into the Softmod specific menu. Aside from that most all of the features you expect are still present. Love it or Hate it, TruHeXEn is here to stay Google Drive Link: https://drive.google.com/file/d/165tikChvIc8q7HqfLxxACBOMGvNqQL3e/view?usp=sharing

  16. Intro Since the beginning of time (2004) it was known that the 1.6 was missing the unpopulated footprints for the extra 4 RAM chips and this made the upgrade impossible. I was thinking recently that if all the signals for the extra RAM chips are still available on the board, we can add RAM to the 1.6 by just connecting all the necessary signals. After the tutorial segment I'll go into why this mod works. I'll also post a video on YouTube at some point. Be warned: this is more difficult that a 1.0 - 1.5 RAM upgrade Tutorial Required items Everything mentioned in the 1.0 - 1.5 RAM upgrade tutorial: https://consolemods.org/wiki/Xbox:RAM_Upgrade 4x 90mm long mod-wire. I used enamelled wire from a transformer. ~8 hours spare time Step 1: flash the modified XBlast OS BIOS XBlast OS (as a BIOS) is super helpful in doing this install correctly. It will boot with any number of extra RAM chips and includes a test for the additional RAM. XBlast OS will not show the 128MB test option on a v1.6 Xbox, so I've gone ahead and rebuilt it from source with that check removed. xblast_os_v0.60.bin Alternative Download Link: https://mega.nz/file/eeAwTZKQ#aaFcbACj3htA6cEtKwoiy1L7uK93o4YwUSqkGBEsUz8 If you don't trust my build, this is the line of code that needs removing: At this point, I suggest booting it up and running the test. The test is under Settings > Tools > 128MB RAM test Step 2: Remove the motherboard from the Xbox Step 3: Place the new RAM chip on top of an existing chip You'll want to solder down the corner pins first to get a good mechanical bond and so that you can adjust the alignment. I do this by pushing down pins 30 and 31 and soldering them down to the chip below. Then I check the alignment of the rest of the pins. If it's bad, then the chip can be nudged into position while reflowing the two pins. Then solder the two pins opposite. Step 4: Push down the rest of the pins Except pin 28! That is the chip select pin and it is unique for each RAM chip. Leave this pin floating in the air and don't solder it yet. Pin 30 is marked on the PCB. The pins come in a kind of ‾‾\__ shape. When you push them down, the whole pin will rotate around this end -> ‾‾\__ . I like to also push down the tail ‾‾\__ <- of the pin to get more contact with the chip below. Step 5: Start soldering all the pins Very little extra solder is required. Use lots of flux. I like the tacky flux that usually comes in syringes. I also like the drag-soldering method. If there's any excess solder, you will get shorts between pins and this extra solder can be wicked away. The new pins won't naturally touch the pins below even after pushing them down. Step 6: Check for shorts and missing connections For the first pass, I like to go in with a microscope and nudge each pin (of the new chip) with a cold soldering iron tip. If the pin moves easily, it is not soldered. Also check for shorts at the same time. If you have the patience (and want it to work first try without frying your Xbox), check for shorts and continuity with a multimeter. I skipped this the first time and got bitten! Best to clean the pins and pads with IPA before checking with the multimeter. Step 7: Add the chip-select wire First, figure out which bank you are adding: Then, find the chip-select solder point: Bank 1 CS is left of the label for C4P10 Bank 2 CS is between the labels for C4R12 and C4R13 Bank 3 CS is left and above the label for C4P21 Bank 4 CS is between and above the labels C4R1 and C3R1 For banks 2 and 3, the chip-select wire can go through the hole to the left of the GPU. For bank 2, 90mm may be too short, so check the wire length and cut it as short as possible. I removed the GPU heatsink to access this hole. At this point, it should look something like this: Step 8: Reassemble and test in XBlast For a quick test, I don't bother with adding the fan, GPU heatsink, HDD, or DVD drive. The test in XBlast should look like what I first posted on reddit: If the Xbox reboots twice and FRAGs, check the bios selection (if you have one available). A normal BIOS will not accept between 1 and 3 extra RAM chips. If the Xbox reboots three of four times (and it's faster than a normal FRAG sequence) check for shorts. This happened to me. Step 9: Repeat for the other 3 chips The first one is the hardest. Step 10: Reflash with your favourite BIOS Some 1.6 BIOSs won't support 128MB. The X3 BIOS works just fine and it's the only one I tested so far. xblast_os_v0.60.bin

  17. Oh no, another flasher! YES! I have resently read from the one or the other that it would be nice to have a option to just flash a bios wihtout the need to install any apps, dashboards or what ever. So I decided to make that DVD for the 2-3 ppl. out there. So this DVD provides XBlastOS and EvoX as flashing tool. Like the MC/USB installer I made, all bios files are already packed as bios.bin so you can flash any TSOP (Incl. Winbond) or ModChip with it right away. Other as the MC/USB flasher this DVD version provides more bios files you can flash. And ofc there is also a XBox 1.6/1.6b flasher on board. And no, if you didn't have already a modded XBox you need to use the MC/USB TSOP flasher (Or you soft mod). How ever. On the main screen you simply select what you like to do: Flash XBox 1.0-1.4 Without Dashboard Install. Flash XBox 1.0-1.4 With Dashboard Install. Flash XBox 1.6-1.6b Without Dashboard Install. Flash XBox 1.6-1.6b With Dashboard Install. So you could install one (1) dashboard along if you like (Ava, EvoX, UiX Lite, UX, X4X, X4G or XES). If not just select the "Without" option and the Flash Menu will load up right away without installing anything. Btw. this installer will install nothing if you don't wish (The only thing you could install is a Dash anyway). Not even XBlastOS or EvoX which both run of the DVD. So you will just leave with a Bios folder on C:\ which contains the bios you have flashed. And if need you have some basic tools in the Main Menu under Miscellaneous. You also will find the option to update the MS Dashboard to the lates version (5960.01) if needed in that menu along with some other options. So you see, the main goal here was basicly bios flashing. No Apps, No Dah (If you don't want) and No Crap will left behind. And ofc this installer didn't touch any byte of your maybe already installed Apps/Dashes or what ever like some others do. Finaly this installer provides all the latest bioses like Cerbios, MakeMHz, EvoX TITAN etc.. Finaly one last word. This DVD didn't use a BFM on boot so it's pretty fast. And all bios MD5 check sums I know have been added to the EvoX flasher and to the Bios Checker App (Oh Dave will throw eggs at me for this). HOW EVER..... Hope you guys have a use for it. PEACE!

  18. I have all the artwork and files and whatnot archived in my OneDrive repository at https://1drv.ms/f/s!Ao7Z5kIDEKUmguAP8ELOjH_Pf6PCDw in the "Artwork" folder It's not compatible with the downloader baked into XBMC4Gamers though... I manually upload the artwork files to my Xbox via FTP I am more than happy to give up some space in my OneDrive if someone can let me know what needs to be done to make it compatible with XBMC4Gamers

  20. have you got the executable source code? if not then have you got a debug version of the executable? The other question is what copyright and/or user agreement is on the exe?
