  1. I've written some firmware for the RP2040, thanks to a bunch of TinyUSB drivers created by Ryzee119 and the OpenStickCommunity, that supports pretty much anything the original OGX360 supports, apart from the 360 keyboard for Steel Battalion. On top of those I've added Sony Dualshock 4 and Dualsense support, and will be working on Switch Pro/Dualshock 3 once I get my hands on those. By default it's setup for the Adafruit Feather RP2040 USB Host board, but it can be compiled for the normal Pico as well, though that doesn't have a second USB port for your controller so you'll have to solder one to GPIO 0/1 (data +/-). The firmware can be compiled and used for - Original Xbox - Nintendo Switch - Xinput (not 360, due to the security chip) These are all the devices that are supported currently: - Original Xbox Duke and S controllers - Wired Xbox 360 controllers - Xbox 360 wireless PC adapter (clone and Microsoft, syncs 1 controller) - Xbox One/Series/Elite controllers - Dualshock 4 (PS4) - Dualsense (PS5) - 8bitdo v1 and v2 wireless adapters I've posted source code and compiled .uf2 files on Github: https://github.com/wiredopposite/OGX-Mini I'd also add that Playstation controllers are recognized by USB vendor and device ID, I'm not positive if there's a better way to do that, but those need to be manually added to the program to work. I need more of these IDs so if you're aware of some list somewhere, or your aftermarket Playstation 4/5 controller isn't working, just give me the VID/PID and I'll add them. I also need these for Playstation 3 controllers once I get around to adding support for those. This is the Adafruit board, no soldering is required for this, you just need a way to connect USB-C to your Xbox's controller port:

  2. With the Adafruit Feather board I linked, you plug the USB C end into the Xbox with an Xbox to USB adapter, then your controller into the USB type A port. If you wanted to use the normal Pi Pico board, you'd need to attach another USB port to it for your controller, here's a diagram of that Firmware for both boards is in the Releases section of the Github. There's no wireless functionality on either of these boards so a wireless adapter like an 8bitdo or the Xbox 360 PC adapter is needed for that

  4. 1. Correct. Get those things out of the 1.0-1.1 and 1.3-1.4 boards ASAP. 2. Just do it beforehand. It’s not like they’re going to blow up the Xbox, but might as well since it’s in the game plan anyway. 3. There’s been some recent changes to how soft mods operate. FTP could be possible, but I’ll let someone else chime in on this one. There are no alterations made to the HDD besides adding a couple of files to support the mod. You can much more easily grab the data off of them after they’re modded. Wether soft or hard mod. 4. Answered in #3 5. If you have SSDs lying around then go for it. I personally wouldn’t recommend going to buy one. This is a huge debate within the community. I’ll let you delve more into that with a YouTube video or something. At the end of the day, XBOX was made in 2001 for IDE drives. They’re just not made to utilize the full capabilities of an SSD. The rest is sort of user preference. Hard mods are all around a better type of mod, but soft mods are excellent for casual users that are only going to play emulators and some Xbox games. Nulling your HDD key is an easy way to not forget your password and give the ability to use that drive in another nulled console with little to no issue. As long as the drive is locked(Soft mods require a lock). If you label the drive for the Xbox it came out of, then there is no real advantage to nulling. It’s also worth noting that nulling the drive can render some existing game saves, useless. That can require another process of resigning your game saves to get them to work again. Edit: I forgot to say DEFINITELY backup those drives. There is a community database with tons of game files for extra content like DLC for maps and other cool stuff. I don’t know where right off hand, but there is a list of things that are still being looked for and you may have some of it.

  5. Yes, I usually only post when there is a big update, at the moment I'm without my PC, so I can't go very far, but I have 2 maps from Episode 1, and 2 from Episode 2 running successfully.... Portal is already running all (missing models and textures).... When I get another PC I will start making optimizations on the episode 2 maps to be able to run them all on the Xbox with a good frame rate and all the content (or almost everything).

  6. When I was interested in a full 3D game engine for the OG Xbox, I wanted to do a simple technique that Conker Live and Reloaded did with facial expressions. The mouths where 3D, but the eyes where 2D textures with 2 stages. It's not shape group based (I think) but uses bones for the mouths and textures for eyes like the outside and the inside of them. There might be an 8 for this. When I finish my own skinned mesh renderer and animator then I will do this. Seems to be the best looking way to me. Lipsync Oh Wow.mp4

  12. You can buy a break away cable on ebay for about $5 U.S. If you cut off the end of it and solder the wires onto the Pico/Adafruit Feather board you could have a direct connection to the Xbox. Make a little 3D printed case and you could have a dedicated Xbox adapter for around $15

  16. Yes, correct installation pin 4 removed on header all soldering looks fine, have built 5-6 and have the same with all, tried the red wire connection as above no difference presume that's to remove write protection? Only other thing to try is the power fix diagram you have, although the power does seem fine at 3.29v at the chip.

  17. This is the exact place I bought my chips from Italy, are these genuine? If so what else could be the issue here? They do boot fine with Cerbios when the 49LF020 is installed on an aladdin btw (the way I programmed the chip)

  18. Excellent. I'll look into auto setting the clock. It's always connected to lan as it is now so shouldn't be an issue. Thank you all for your assistance.

  19. Honestly I hadn't thought of that, it's a good idea. The Xbox device driver would need to be changed in order for the controller to show up with a memory card in it, but I'd imagine it's possible. I'll give some more thought to it and see what I can do, atm my focus is really adding support for as many devices as possible, along with gamepad emulation for PS3. The ogx360_t4 firmware can be compiled to emulate a Steel Battalion controller, as of now my firmware cannot, that and the memory card are the differences. I'm not sure how popular the Steel Battalion support was or if there's a big demand for that, if there is it wouldn't be a ton of work to get that going, most of the code was written already for the ogx360_t4. The main reason for this project is how simple the rp2040 is to use and design hardware for in this context, it takes care of usb device and host duties by itself for $0.80 + the $0.50 flash, as opposed to the way more expensive atmega32u4 + level shifter + max usb controller setup, or the $30+ teensy4.1. There's also plenty of room to expand the program, which the atmega chip doesn't offer.

  20. Interesting, so the only thing that differentiates this from OGX360_T4 would be the ability to function as a memory card? Any way to add support for XMU with a 16Mb QSPI chip?

  21. I'd recommend the Orico 2.5" to 3.5" HDD adaptor. It perfectly matches up the SATA connector as if it were actually a 3.5" HDD It can easily be found on either eBay or AliExpress. The below link currently has 50% off... ORICO HDD Enclosure 2.5 to 3.5" Internal HDD Adapter - AliExpress

  25. Hi all. im currently using xbmc emustation on one of my soft modded xboxes. i want to add a bunch of Xbox titles but don’t want them all in one folder on dash carousel. is there anyway I can edit the carousel to have say three Xbox images and links for # - F, H- O, P- X for instance to make it easier to scroll through games I want? i know you can jump to a letter, but that’s no the way I’d prefer. any help would be appreciated. Cheers.

  27. In the end, did better overall than I thought I would, including one where I did a powertrace bypass solely on the front of the board from R3G4 to the PIC since the TP on the back was lifted and trying to solder to vias is harder for me. Besides the one we were working on above, I bricked/FRAG'd a perfectly good board. A 1.1 that I went through the whole cerbios TSOP process and then when I clicked both triggers, start and white button it just went back to BIOS select screen, meaning one of the tsop points wasnt soldered properly Since shadow C had been deleted I had to delete all save / softmod files and reinstall. Did that and then resoftmodded and tried the Cerbios disc TSOP again since it was all hooked up, and hey why not. of course it still didn't work. The tsop solder joint job on the front looked great but the one near R7R3 wasn't quite connected I suppose so I tried to fix it and made it worse, ended up lifting the pad and even part of the trace. You can see the result here...and subsequent boot attempt resulted in a FRAG. I don't know if that damage would cause a FRAG, or if it was due to BIOS getting corrupted somehow so tried the Coma fix but it was unsuccessful...sorry to have that one not work out, especially since it didn't have any corrosion However, not counting the one discusses above that wasn't fixable, the total for the effort was 5 of 6 back to full operational status: 5 successful TSOPs, 4 trace repairs, several Cap replacements, and despite the pad lift, think I've improved my soldering skills a bunch, especially considering doing it without the proper equipment or setup. Now onto loading dashboards and upgrading hard drives...

  33. It's surprising to think how the reception before was quite mixed, when some thought that it wasn't possible to use a cheapmod on a 1.6-revision Xbox. Well, the good news is that you can, thankfully.

  36. Here's a simple command I used on my Windows desktop, to unpack everything into one large F partition, mounted as X: in FatXplorer. Hope it helps someone. open a command prompt window into the base folder you downloaded make sure you have 7z.exe in there (if not already setup in PATH to a different location) then type the following: for /r %a in (*.7z) do 7z.exe x "%~a" -o"X:\Games" Thank you so much! @nikeymikey for all your hard work and sharing with the community.

  38. The TSOP recovery is very limited to what was flashed to it. It's not often successful to recover it using xblast pro. Much better to just lift the TSOP chip off the board and flash it or replace with a newly flashed one and solder back on. Save you a lot of grief really.

Can I just say, after a few very short emails to NeMesiS, they were able to completely blow me away with a modified version of this kit I'd like to post the results here on their behalf just to show what this kit looks like with a little bit of an Evangelion twist I'm very excited to receive this and continue with my themed console Excited for plastic

  40. Please trust me. It's D0 that needs to be grounded to activate an LPC boot on everything other than a 1.6. Lframe may exist in some form on 1.3 to 1.4, but is not used. D0 is. Lframe is only used on the 1.6 to trigger a chip boot. I've modded every motherboard revision out there. This is how it works. I do not know what is going on with the GitHub and why 1.3 to 1.4 have been left out, but they don't work any different than the 3 previous versions and should work fine. The 1.6 requires an LPC rebuild. That is the only practical difference other than needing to cut an Lframe trace. You don't HAVE to cut Lframe and it will work without cutting the trace, but Lframe (the 1.6 version of D0) has a lot of current and isn't a good idea to keep traced up.

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! greetings! bot
