  1. OGXBox Installer 2021 Made because ... ! First of, you have the choice between two versions. 1) PBL which uses Phoenix Bios Loader and 2) NonPBL without the Phoenix Bios Loader. Both versions aim mainly for ModChip/TSOP users. So you don't have the options to softmod. If you want that, go with Rocky5's Softmodding Tool. Why using this this instead hof HeXEn/TruHeXEn or Slayers? Well, good question and here is the answer. It's faster as all of them. It dosn't has faulty bioses on it. It's up to date and it offers way, way more to install as any of them. So you have planty of Apps, Dashboards or Emulators to install and a huge amount of bug free bioses (ModChip and TSOP incl. Winbond). It's simple build without any fancy code or the need of copy stuff over and over again. It's clean by default which means no temp files will left behind. You have planty of live apps you can use or just test before you install them. Just give this installer a chance, test it and I think you don't use anything else again (except for softmodding which I don't plan to integrate at all.). 1 ) OGXBox Installer 2021 UX PBL v1.0.0 MD5 for the v1.0.0 ISO: b844a24f31c0c8f41325e783d50f9d1a MD5 for the v1.0.0 RAR: 50ae7369f08a972601c4c75260965532 Download from 1fichier : https://1fichier.com/?44oryacyh292q6t7rbzd Folder link for updates : https://1fichier.com/dir/mX1kipIz Download from Mega : https://mega.nz/file/AZ9zESba#otk8Ckf5LlvkKkw1ty4GIsVyDRnxhuCfZu4M6YqLC4w Folder link for updates : https://mega.nz/folder/xUl13A4B#d_RMbhNrNA81QhgwoaUv4g 2) OGXBox Installer 2021 UX v1.0.0 MD5 for the v1.0.0 ISO: e82dacd9b36f496e85c98b3935462f52 MD5 for the v1.0.0 RAR: d463ac6e8ce9829469c962b790f8d8e0 Download from 1fichier : https://1fichier.com/?52xlot8c5ms9e1rb5n9e Folder link for updates : https://1fichier.com/dir/mX1kipIz Download from Mega : https://mega.nz/file/YA8lHQzJ#VOazKVrHL6oZ9qW0ezyEM3U3hs38_-w5OfOkLCMvX-0 Folder link for updates : https://mega.nz/folder/xUl13A4B#d_RMbhNrNA81QhgwoaUv4g Finaly, because i don't have the permissions to edit this topic later, I have included folder lins for Mega and fichier where you can find updates.

  2. I don't like that the Startech SATA-IDE adapter doesn't have a case, so I designed one for it, and thought I'd share it. It's printed in two halves and snaps together (if all goes well). sata-adapter-case.stl

  3. 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

  4. I recently got into 3D printing, and went down the rabbit hole of designing my own stuff, which has been a massive learning curve. So, a bit of back story... I recently came across four OG boxes in a cupboard. Two had been chipped with the X3, one is softmodded and one has never been opened. They hadn't seen the light of day for the guts of 15 years, so I dusted them off and powered up the two chipped boxes, and they're both working fine. I'd fitted 200GB drives into them (biggest drives available at the time) and used one of them for a couple of years before a house move dictated its retirement. The second chipped box was never used. I bought it for my nephew and niece to play on when they visited but they were more interested in fishing and playing with the dog. Anyway, I digress... Fast forward to a few weeks ago, and I decided to have a mess with the chipped boxes. I've fitted 2TB drives, and I went looking for an X3CP faceplate, as these were a 'must have' thing, back in the day, but it seems they are no longer available, and if you can find one, they cost silly money. I also went looking for an LCD to complement the X3 chip, but I hit the same wall, although I did have a couple of HUGE 20x4 LCDs lying around, which were far too big to fit into the front panel of the xbox, but I wired them up with connectors to fit the X3, and they're working just fine, so I decided to have a go at designing a front panel to fit them into the Xbox. These are the LCD displays. I'm also adding a smaller LCD for an Arduino, which will monitor temperatures and control some LEDs I'm planning on fitting. This is where I'm at with the front panel. It's still a work in progress, as I'm planning to add switches to replace the bank dip switches for the X3, but I'm still searching for something suitable. The power and (ex) eject buttons are being replaced with RGB ring buttons, which will be controlled by the Arduino. Good lord... I'm 52 years old. You'd think I'd have grown out of this by now! Edit: I've no idea what happened with that link in the post. It wasn't supposed to be there and I have no idea how to remove it.

  5. Slayer's v.2.7 2021 This a updated version of the last ORIGINAL version v2.7 from Slayer's without BFM-Bios. Slayer never used a BFM but the later updated ones does. Not sure who has made them but they heavily screwed up the BFM Bioses. The ORIGIANL Slayer's (without BFM) almost never failed to boot even, all other installers failed! (Incl. the horrible BFM modded Slayer's, what a shame). So that makes Slayer's a useful disc to have on hand if you run in such problems that your other installers won't boot. And because I wanted it as original as possible I have not touched much here, like you can see below. I have not even changed the name (Slay3r's would look cool) or versions number. I just added the year 2021 to it to point out that this is a REAL ORIGINAL Slayer's with just some little changes. Hope you guy's like it. Changlog (Slayer's v2.7 2021): Added : ~ 1200 trainers. Added : A hand full of nice old skins. Added : The iND 5003.67 and iND 5004.67 to the flash section. Added : The option to install XBMC4Gamers (latest build). - You can installed also as main dash. :) Added : The option to install XBMC-Emustation (latest build). Added : XBpartitioner 1.3. Added : Enigma NTSC-PAL. (Strange it was linked but not in the ISO) Added : BiosChecker. Added : XBox version checker. Added : Complex Tools Added : Px HDD Loader Added : Xored Mini Launcher. Added : Resctoox to flash the Sharp and Winbond. - I also added the option to flash a Sharp or Winbond TSOP. For both I choose the EvoX m8+ noDVD because it makes the most seens. Added : A Live Apps menu (8) for quick access of all apps. UPDATED APPS: Updated : Config Macig to Rocky5's 1.6.1 Updated : Dvd2XboX to the latest build. Updated : DVDX to the latest build. UPDATED DASHBOARDS: Updated : XBMC to 3.5.3 Updated : Avalaunch to the latest build. Updated : UnleashX to the latest build. UPDATED EMULATORS: (Some of them were very very old.) Updated : ZsnexBox to the latest build. Updated : pcsxbox to the latest build. Updated : n64 to Surreal64 CE to the latest build. Updated : neogenesis to the latest build. Updated : Colecovision (AdamX) to the latest build. Updated : A2600 (z26x) to the latest build. Changed : The bios EvoX bios files to noDVD.(No other changes here) 1fichier Folder Link : https://1fichier.com/dir/xE2qhDTu Mega Folder Link : https://mega.nz/folder/sF9UQZZY#nPzCaPS9-fkYH2hjZkaf_Q Peace!

  7. Here I provide a "Fixed" version of TruHeXEn 2020 because so many ppl. "complain" about this disk or reporting bugs (Mostly in a way they should be reportet) so I decided to see what I can do because even ToXicMedz is aware of some of this he seems not very interested in fixing any of it (I could be wrong here but thats how it looks to me.). Reason two is, that many ppl. don't like other installers, for what ever reason. How ever, here is a changelog of this version and under it you will find the folder download links for both versions on Mega and 1fichier: ******************************************************************************** *************************** TruHeXEn 2020 FiXEd *************************** ******************************************************************************** Removed over way over 1500 faulty (and basicly not needed) commend lines which are massively slow down the xbox. Replaced the faulty noDVD bioses with working ones to fix the cold boot bug. Closed the open tags (over ratet I know) and fixed some other little things as well and finaly made the majority of the scrips looking nice. Removed the annoying password crap. Added the option to flash a noDVD bios to the Winbond TSOP. I split of the Chip/TSOP part from the Softmod part to increase the boot speed even more. Now there's a TruHeXEn.xbe (cfg\01.xml) and a TruHeXEnSoftMod.xbe (cfg\02.xml). The main option 2 links strait to the softmod part. Fixed the numbering which was missing and also changed some because of the cfg split. I have made the BFM bios new and also changed it's name and the name of the root.xbe. Both are nemed TruHeXEn now. And I fixed the BFM bios in the HeXEn tools as well. I updated the following apps to the latest build: XBMC XBMC-Emustation XBMC4Gamers ConfigMagic v1.6.1. I also have made changes to the "Shutdown" option (no biggy here). It will now clean up the installation by default and also eject the installer and close the tray afterwards. Finaly, I thought it's nice to offer this one as Static IP & DHCP build. So, TruHexen 2020 Fixed is available as Static IP & DHCP build. :) ******************************************************************************** Folder download links: https://1fichier.com/dir/KjEHFO6m https://mega.nz/folder/YVVHRARK#31ugTQiRblh_Q-_zqgrpug ******************************************************************************** PEACE!

  8. ******************************************************************************** *************************** OGXBox Installer 2021 *************************** ******************************************************************************** Version 1.5.0. Final Folder link @ 1fichier : https://1fichier.com/dir/mX1kipIz Folder link @ Mega for : https://mega.nz/folder/xUl13A4B#d_RMbhNrNA81QhgwoaUv4g Most "important" changes : Switched from Resctoox to XBlast for Winbond & Sharp TSOPs. (Hope you enjoy it Raja ;) ) Updated UiX Lite to the latest build 0.9.5 (Now C:\ only but 0.8.4 is still an option) I have made all bios files new. I restructured the menu a bit (Funtions are still there but may in slyightly different places or in new subs). Added a EvoX CC for the XBlast light modchip. Changed some other minor things you may notice or may not. So let me say again sry for the long time some of you had to wait for it but some times life is simply a b1tch. Hope you will enjoy the new version (DHCP and Static are online at Mega and on 1fichier as hotlinks). PEACE!

  9. Bios “FAQ”: What does CEE or EEC meen and what is different? CEE/EEC is the boot order of the bios file. CEE will boot it’s first Dashboard from the “C:\” partion of the drive. In most cases it’s “C:\evoxdash.xbe”. Which can be either a the EvolutionX Dashboard or a shortcut to a different Dashboard on any other partition (C,E,F or G). So you could place a shortcut on C:\ and point to E:\Dash\UnleashX\unleashx.xbe and when you boot up your XBox, UnleashX will show up as Dashboard. Screen : https://imgur.com/a/hf6nG5Z In some cases, the evoxdash.xbe can be found, for what ever reason. Then the bios tries to boot the second letter “E:\” which points to UnleashX (In the pic above – E:\Dash\UnleashX\unleashx.xbe). If that can be found it will boot UnleashX. And you guessed it, if that can’t be found either, the Bios tries a last time with “E:\Dash\EvolutionX\evoxdash.xbe”. When all of these options has failed, you will get an fancy error screen. Note: For some apps like Dashloader ect. you should use a CEE bios to avoid any trouble. I would say, a CEE is the most user frindly option even, if you have more experiences, it makes no differend. EEC will boot it’s first Dashboard from the “E:\” partion of the drive. They point mostly strait to a Dashboard like “E:\Dash\UnleashX\unleashx.xbe” or “E:\XBMC4Gamers\default.xbe” as you can see in the screen below. Screen : https://imgur.com/a/GsFOZCo So that’s the main difference between them and they are the most common bios variations. But every “rule” has his exceptions. Some times you have bioses like “EFC” or “FFC”. If I remember right, the X-Disk from FireFucker has those bioses. Not sure why but if I had to make a guess “FireFucker – FF” = F partition. But thats just a guess. So you see, you can point your bios to what ever you want. C,E,F or G, it just depends on you. But there is a little “twist” in here. Some old Dashboards lile tHc, BlackStromX (BSX) and some other will need a bios which boots C first because those are “Hacked” MS Dashbaords. Ofc you could HEX-Edit the hell out of it, like some ppl. Have done with BSX or tHc Lite but at the end, it’s not worth it. All “modern” dashboards boot from everywhere. So let’s move on to iND. iND bioses are a bit different. A iND bios has, not always but most likely, a config file in which the bootorder is stored (you could inject the config to the bios but, for 1 sec it’s not worth the trouble you could get into and in case you use a 5004.06 bios it could breake your XBox). To edit the config of the iND bios you can use the IND-BIOS Configurator or notepad. It just depends on your personal taste. Like you see in the screen below, in the “ind-bios.cfg” and in “ IND-BIOS Configurator” appears the same. It’s almoste or is the same like you have already seen in the EvTool for EvoX bioses. Screen : https://imgur.com/a/YSWRajj And they work the same way. You can do CEE, EEC configs if you want and inject them and you would have an EEC, CEE bios like you have with the EvoX bioses but that not very common. Most ppl. prefere to use the config. A plus here is, you can edit the config fast and you don’t need to re-falsh a bios just to make the change work. Example - iND bootorder (ind-bios.cfg) DASH1=\Device\Harddisk0\Partition2\evoxdash.xbe DASH2=\Device\Harddisk0\Partition1\Dash\UnleashX\unleashx.xbe DASH3=\Device\Harddisk0\Partition1\Dash\EvolutionX\evoxdash.xbe DEFAULTXBE=\Device\CdRom0\default.xbe The rest is the same like for EvoX. And now the last, the Xecuter bios. Like the iND, the Xecuter bios has a config, the “x2config.ini”. And like in the iND config you can edit it with x2-config-maker tool or with Notepad like you can see in the screen below. Screen : https://imgur.com/a/81liMNt nd yes, it’s the same like in EvoX or iND but you have 2 Dashboard options more which can fail before you get that fancy error I have talked in the beginning. You can change the boot order here as fast as in the iND and you don’t need to re-flash it in case of a change. One different here, you cant inject the ini to the bios like you could do it with the iND but again, who want’s that. Example - x2/x3 bootorder (x2config.ini) dash1Name = e:Dash\UnleashX\unleashx.xbe dash2Name = e:Dash\EvolutionX\evoxdash.xbe dash3Name = e:Dash\XBMC4Gamers\default.xbe dash4Name = c:evoxdash.xbe dash5Name = c:xboxdash.xbe So that it about the CEE, EEC, XBMC or X4G bioses. Some other interesting things which should be cleard up are, that even the name “noDVD” seems to say that you don’t have a DVD drive, that is not true. As we all know the XBox will not boot up when you remove your DVD drive or it’s gone bad. A noDVD bios just disables the check for it so the XBox simply didn’t care if it’s there or if it’s working. And because more and more drives beginning to fail because they get old it’s a smart choice to flash a noDVD bios. BUT you have to keep your eyes open. Because, since HeXEn/TruHeXEn has faulty noDVD bios on it, ppl. Start to belive that you can’ t boot a DVD and some just belive you can use it at all, like I said above. Both isn’t true. So if you have a “good” noDVD bios, you can boot/cold boot any DVD you want. Let’s take a look at the screen below. Screen : https://imgur.com/a/1KA1gmZ Like you can see, the left one is a “good” noDVD bios. It has still “default.xbe” in the DVD box. The one on the right is missing that. So even you have a good working DVD drive the bios don’t know what it should boot. That meens, when you have such a bios on your XBox, you will only be able to launch the DVD from your Dashboard but not if you power on your XBox with the DVD already in the drive. We have the well known HeXEn cold boot bug which hopefully get fixed in the 2021,2022,2023 version? We will see – or not. That depends on Heimdall and his finger. So whats left to say? Oh right. F, G or F+G. And what stand this letters for? They define the layout of the hard drive. So if you have a huge 2TB HDD in your XBox, you have to use F+G (Partition F and G) if you like to use that space. For smaller HDD’s up to 250GB max, a F only would be fine but, you could also use a F+G because there is basicly no downside (Did your PC care if you have just C partition even Windows supports up to 5 partitions? ). That leads us to the last question. Which bios you should choose? That depends. I would say. If you don`t have a 128MB XBox, I would recommend a “EvoX m8+ F+G noDVD CEE” bios. You flash it once and then you can forget it. EvoX is fast it does make the job well and you can do pretty much the same with it like you can do with the others. And if you have an v1.6 you have to use it in case you have a Aladdin, LPC2 or any other “cheap” modchip which just has 256kb. The other option for a 1.6 would be an x2 5035 but that’s an 512kb bios. But if you have a fancy schmancy bling bling 128MB XBox, I would choose the iND but, I have to point out here that there isn’t a “becasue of”. Some nerdynerds have a reason for that, I don’t. So… I think, thats it for this little weivrevo which turned out to be a little bit longer. I hope that I gave you some more or less usefull information and that I cleared things up a little for beginner or HeXEn/TruHeXEn noDVD user. If so, hit the like and subscribe button and don’t miss the next video … PEACE! PS. If you have found a typo, congrats, you have found the copy protection.

  10. If you have a problem with running Forza, try this trick: go to original MS dashboard (green one), open settings, language and change language to another one. Then reboot console. After reboot go to original MS dashboard again and change language back to your preffered. Try to run Forza.

  11. For the last year or two I've been working on reversing some of the data structures that have been left unresearched or incomplete by the old scene, not to such a hardcore degree as I would honestly like but off and on when I have the time. This spans from what most people have seen me put out like the Xbox LIVE account stuff but I also have an interest in FATX16/32 structuring, the various configuration/datastore sectors at the beginning of the Xbox hard drive, the 1BL/FBL/2BL/BIOS image structures and data packing, XBE header/certificate data, security, and structuring, and the EEPROM data and structuring - the fundamental data types that make up the Xbox Today I completed the EEPROM data structure - well I say "completed" but there are still some things like flags, bitpacking, and a single unlabeled 16bit value to truly finish up all the info on the data handling side of things - however, structurally I have mapped out all the EEPROM data including the notorious hardware section as well as reversing the XConfigChecksum into something much more legible, portable, and simply more correct than what's been sitting on the XboxLinux/XboxDev wiki's for the last decade and a half I didn't really feel posting something like this on Reddit would be the way to go, the constant Twitter-feed like nature of threads just buries information and I have always preferred forums for their organization - and besides, forums are where I started in modding and forums are what I ran/helped run for many years of my modding life Anyway to my point, if you're interested in the structure and/or (partial for now) handling of EEPROM data then I've posted all the info on my GitHub project. This information can be used to parse, edit, or build an EEPROM image from scratch for any revision of the Xbox (including 1.6 and 1.6b models). I'll likely make a tool for people to create/edit EEPROM images at some point but I've got a couple Xbox projects I've been working on for a while and would like to finish at least one of those before starting another and I'll stuff all this structuring information into a table on the project page soon or maybe edit the XboxDev wiki so it's easier for non-programming people to view and understand at a glance Thanks for reading (also, posting this in the general forum wasn't my first choice but this doesn't really fit into the topic of homebrew - it's more so R&D) This paragraph has nothing to do with the subject of my post but I just wanted to say something personal here. I post this kind of information and put out these various tools and answer these questions that most people don't have an answer to for the sole purpose of bettering or further educating and simply just passing on information I know to the few left in original Xbox scene and even though I might come off as such it's never really been an ego or "clout" thing for me with the original Xbox, I've owned an original Xbox since 2001 and it's purely a passion thing. All I'm really after with this hobby of research and modding of the Xbox is to leave the scene with correct information or at least as correct as I'm able to comprehend and express to others, which I'm sure the old members of the early scene tried to do as well. The reason the original Xbox still lives on is because of sites like this and the handful of people that still hold onto their interest of the original Xbox or their passion of tinkering. Some of you may know my username and others may not, I've seen people mention me as this sort of Xbox "guru" or "expert" and I don't know if I come across as such but I can say, there are many things I don't know, many things I feel I'll never know, and a lot of times I feel like I barely know anything but I know objectively this isn't entirely true because there's a lot I know about the Xbox (and Xbox 360 for that matter) and yet it doesn't stop me from feeling dumb much of the time. Everything I know about computers, the Xbox/Xbox 360, data, structuring, programming, etc. is all self-taught and if you want to learn the type of stuff I know then you absolutely can teach yourself these things and it doesn't necessarily need to be on the software side of things, if you want to know hardware then you can teach yourself that as well - push yourself to learn, you are your best teacher. If you're part of the Xbox scene, whether you're a complete noob or have been around forever, whether we've had good/bad interactions in the past or maybe in the future, know that I appreciate you regardless of your knowledge or "status" and know that I hold no negative feelings towards anyone left in this scene and I probably never will. Not entirely sure why I just wrote this rant but hopefully no one minds, I'm just glad I'm not alone in this hobby of playing around with a 20 year old outdated machine

Added a WIP script to set off the XDK build see XDK below Fixed %_BUILDVER% not being set on razzle-easybuild handover Changed menu colours (I may change back depending on feedback) Small update to some 'dirs' files that adds folders to the build process that can build successfully Separated easybuild.cmd (mainmenu) to public/tools/ Actual easybuild.cmd shows correct Razzle Tool Path now, starts xcopybins.cmd as postbuild XDK Building InstallShield Professional 6.2 is required for this: I have included my currently in progress script to try and build the Xbox SDK. Currently it fails compiling the InstallShield specific XDK Setup scripts.. To run the script, load Easy-Build, drop to Razzle prompt and type "private\SDK\setup\xsdkbuild.cmd" If you want to help the development of Easy-Build, have some issues join the Matrix chat! https://matrix.to/#/!febkSwamiedCsfevDe:matrix.org?via=matrix.org NOTE: This is VERY early stages.. It is lacking in many features that Easy-Build-NT5 has.. If I get time I will eventually figure out more of the build system, any and all help is greatly welcomed!!

  16. 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)

  19. 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!

  20. No, the MS Dash will be installed by default when you set up a new HDD. You can launch the xboxdash.xbe by using the file explorer in X4G. It should be also possible to place a shortcut (if not already there). Every bios has default path's. On my installer there are planty of pre configured bioses for every dashboard so no need to edit something. Just flash a X4G bios and you are good. The major difference, when it comes to the boot entires is, that the iND has a config file (like the Xecuter) where you can edit the path of each dashboard. The EvoX dosn't have that and to change the path for the bios you would need a tool called "EvTool". It's very easy to use and not much more complicatet like edeting a txt file. Down side for the Evox bios is, if you change something you would need to reflash the bios. For the iND you just edit the config and reboot. The EvoX though boots up a little bit faster because iND & Xecuter needs to load the config first which coast you ~2 sec. The 5003 XISO has some patches and the option to mount ISO files more easily using the included Dashloader app. Here is the read me ot the iND Bios Bios has been patched to fix the white+back shutdown bug and also the Ram speed patch has been applied. ( Patching done by xbox7887 from discord, great guy. ) XBL Patched by me, but original 5004 patch done by kl0wn. You may ask why? when there is 5004, well 5004 cant have XISO support patched into it, 5003 can. So if you want to load XISO off the HDD now you can and not have to worry about the shutdown bug. Dashloader: This is required for the XISO loading as ind-bios loads CDrom0 instead of CDRom1 like Softmods, so I have to do the launching of he xbe eg... It also includes the kernel patcher (XISO support, softmods the kernel) and the dismounter, so it acts just like a HDD game would. (its 1 xbe that does it all) Using Dashloader Customizer you can toggle whether it dismounts the XISO on IGR or not.

  21. Once you have setup the HDD then load the installer disk and look in the live apps section, there is a program called XBpartitioner 1.3 load that and it will show all the drives, there will probably be a ER on partition 6 and or 7 Start by pressing B to distribute the space of partitions 6 and 7 evenly the highlight partition 6 and the D-Pad right to reduce the size by 2gb (925.76gb) and repeat for partition 7, Now press the start button to format the HDD. When the format is complete you need to power cycle the Xbox (power off then on) and reload the XBpartitioner 1.3 and highlight partition 6 (F drive) and increase the size using the D-Pad left to 927.76gb and repeat for partition 7 (G Drive) and press start to format. The reason for doing this way is there is a bug in the XBpartitioner program. Now you can start to copy your games to the HDD.

  23. First prototype printed. I'm going to change the design slightly to incorporate bank select switches but I'm quite happy with how it turned out. The smaller LCD isn't doing much at the moment. It's just displaying the running pattern for the Neopixel LED ring I put in the jewel, but it'll eventually display some other info, when the sensors arrive.

  24. hi all, made progress it seems that the main issue with dvd drives on the xbox is due to spin down mode, the xbox wont tolerate that but in terms of using a compact flash or other solid state device its good news, all the lines on the xbox dvd power plug are either grounds, voltage or high or low at a particular interval. any off the shelf unit like an arduino, raspberry pi or other small board computer could be programmed to do what we want, the pi may be overkill for our needs, unless we go the whole hog and make one stop shop add in board that does disk drive, but also takes our video signals and gives us HDMI, it could do other things too reading eeprom springs to mind. but that would require quite a few of us getting our heads together, so for now i'm concentrating on just the drive. iv'e got teenseys, arduino nano's, a pi pico, coolrunners and other boards here to play with, i'm going to start with a compact flash to ide adapter first to hold the data mainly due to it basically being an ide type drive, but i have got 44 pin laptop ide to 40 pin ide converters, so have options. just going to take time and energy to do, but i'm up for it. but i want to make things clear, i'm not interested in selling this i dont even plan to make and sell boards, what i learn and get working will be posted freely here, so you can do it too, if that means adding a pc dvd drive ok, if its using an ode thats cool too. i am going to use off the shelf parts as much as possible, its not about just getting it to work i want it as easy as possible for people to replicate. as an aside a mate of mine has ordered a mode ode for his dreamcast, this unit is already running on saturn, dreamcast and playstation 1 with playstation 2 being worked on by others if the possibility exists of using a ready made solution i may jump that way, it all depends what will be the easiest for users to replicate. thanks, aly.

  25. If you wrote a BIOS version of 1.0.4627.X or lower to a 1.1-1.4 motherboard or a BIOS version of 1.0.4817.X or above to a 1.0 motherboard then the result would be a "coma console" because 1.0 and 1.1+ motherboards have a differing MCPX ROM and use a different encryption algorithm for decrypting 2BL into memory (1.1-1.4 boards also have an extra step in the bootchain) All official retail Microsoft BIOS' are 256KB so if you wrote a 1MB BIOS image and it wrote at least 256KB of the image to flash then that's technically okay but if you wrote a 1.0 image to a 1.1-1.4 revision or vise-versa then 2BL can't be decrypted properly and that's why your console is 'bricked'. You can recover the console by installing a modchip and I believe you can recover the TSOP as well but I'm not the one to answer how to go about that Quick rundown of critical failure states on the Xbox: Coma console: An error in 1BL or fatal hardware failure (CPU, NB (imbedded in GPU), SB (MCPX), RAM, SMC, or TSOP, and anything in between connecting those chips.. so basically anything) - no code to be able to signify an error to a user LED blinking: An error in 2BL (or FBL/2BL on 1.1+ revisions) or fatal hardware failure (RAM, GPU, or EEPROM) or something wrong with the kernel image - can blink LED's with code to write to SMC Error screen: An error in kernel or something wrong with higher level buses, devices, software, or basically any chip on the board not behaving correctly when the console is in a fully initialized state You're correct in saying BIOS' and kernels are usually separate things, the Xbox doesn't actually have a "BIOS" but that's what the modding scene labeled it as a long time ago - it's more so firmware. The Xbox "BIOS" is 2-3 separate blobs of code mushed together into a single chunk of data stuffed onto a flash chip (or ROM on 1.6) BIOS = 2BL + kernel or BIOS = FBL + 2BL + kernel (in the case of 1.1+ revisions)

  28. 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 IDE Maxtor that was bought new for an xbox - so not been hammered. Green lan led & blue 5mm hd led - both waterclear flat tops. Cheers all.

  29. 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.

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.

  33. 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.

  34. 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.

  35. The Nichicon HM series near the heatsink on some revisions (I believe only 1.4 but that's all I've seen) fail as they can bulge and lose capacitance without power applied. I've had two consoles bulge, when I put them away, the capacitors were fine. It's only because they're a bad batch. On an LCR meter I believe all 3300uF caps read around 10-20uF which is very bad but ESR was within normal range. It prevented powering of the consoles whereas both were working fine before. It could be the warm environment I stored them in? Aside from that, I don't think there's much of an issue. I've got electrolytics that are much older (1970s) in equipment such as my main amplifier still working well within spec, or close enough that it's not an issue.

  37. Which dashboard are you running? By default, XBMC4Xbox-based dashboards do not list the cache drives: X, Y and Z when you FTP to your console. If they are in fact missing/deleted, UnleashX can easily re-create the X, Y and Z drives . Your installation of UnleashX may have a Clear Cache menu option that will create them and clear UnleashX's cache file. If not, edit UnleashX's config.xml file to add the following lines where you want them in the menu: <List Text="Format cache drives: X, Y and Z" Sort="Off" Batch="True"> <Item Action="Format" Arg1="X"/> <Item Action="Format" Arg1="Y"/> <Item Action="Format" Arg1="Z"/> </List> Somewhere inside the <List Text="System" Sort="Off" Auto="On"> ... </List> section so it's not in the top-level menu.

  39. It looks like the R7D1 link has not taken properly Your really only option now is a mod chip. As you don't own a soldering iron yet when you get one practice soldering on a old circuit board for a while before you try fitting the mod chip. With the Aladdin chip I link the BT on the mod chip to ground as this makes the chip always active, I also link the D0 point on the bottom of the board to ground The main reason for making the chip disabled was to boot the stock bios for Xbox Live and that's log gone plus the onboard bios is not working now. The BT link on the mod chip The D0 link on the main board., Your board is the 1.2-1.4 (pic on the right) and use the alternative D0 point, just add a link like the black line. The Aladdin chips come pre-flashed with a EvoxM8 bios to get you started. Cheers SS Dave Soft modding is like masturbating, It gets the job done but it's nothing like the real thing.

  40. I was doing HDD swaps on the OG, and noticed the GPU cooler was getting quite hot, so I decided to draw up and print a shroud to keep the chips cool while I worked on the boxes,and came up with this: It made quite a difference to the temperatures, especially the GPU. It was only a temporary measure, to cool the GPU while I had the box apart, and when I tried to fit the drives back in, neither would fit, so I decided to have a go at making a shroud that would fit with the drives installed... Nightmare! Those things are really close to everything. I printed a few designs, to try to get one to fit perfectly, and I finally managed a couple of designs that allowed both drives to fit perfectly, but it meant losing the ramp to the GPU cooler. This was the first one: This one meant there was a little bit of cutting involved on the DVD cradle, so I designed another, which I won't post, because neither of them worked worth a shite. The one in the picture dropped the CPU temp by about 1 degree at idle, while the GPU temp stayed the same. The gpu cooling would have been much better if I didn't have to lose the ramp in order to fit the DVD drive, so I'll probably make one for my DVD drive-less box, but what an absolute waste of time! Although the original one did work well

  42. I'd suggest obtaining XboxHDM23 Beta 4 - an updated release by @Rapper_skull. It has a SAFE mode. When enabled, it allows you to access any hard drive connected to your PC, not just via a USB-to-HDD interface adapter. Make sure you are working with the correct hard drive before you prepare it - wiping it and adding content for the Xbox. Download: XboxHDM23 Beta 4 Beta 4 contains no content in it's HDD_files/C or HDD_files/E folders. If you are preparing a hard drive as XboxHDM23USB Beta 3 does, you need to download the Xbox Softmodding Tool's Build v1.1.8 / Installer Variants / XBHDM Build.zip archive. Extract its content and add it to the HDD_files/C folder of XboxHDM23 Beta 4. Note: A reminder on a softmodded console the hard drive has to be locked after preparing it before it will work in the console to boot the no-original-game-disc-required softmod installer installed from the XBHDM Build.zip file. Or, if you simply want to build a new hard drive for a hard modded Xbox that contains the stock MS dashboard files, download, extracct and add to the HDD_files/C folder the content of Clean_C_and_E_files_for_Xbox.7z archive. The E drive content contains only two (2) empty folders - UDATA and TDATA.

So the new psu arrived today, it's an Inter-Tech mini itx psu (model 88882190)This claims to output 5v at 12A and can supply up to 200w depending on the AC adapter.This should mean that no filter caps need to be removed as 12A is plenty when running without a dvd rom and using a 2.5" hdd. Will test as soon as my AC adapter arrives.

  45. Update to v1.0.2 Changlelog: - Added the Memorycard TSOP Flasher to the "Flas Bios" section (2.0.) as: "2.3. Copy MC TSOP Flasher to HDD/MC/USB." Both versions, Pal and NTSC, are there. Now you have it on hand if needed. - Added Added the option to install trainers. You will find it under " 5. Install Applications " -> " 5.2.7. Gaming " -> " 5.2.7.4. Install Game Trainer " It realy dosn't fit there since these are trainer but we all can live with that i think. Better than having a menu just 4 trainers. - Fixed the iND and EvoX bios flash ini. No biggy here just costemtics. - The main menu has been sorted which wasn't to much fun because of all the numbers which has to be changed as well but now it makes more seense. *YAY!* - New M8+ bioses added (A DAMN lot for any purpose). - New x2 bioses added. (A lot for any purpose). - New iND bioses added. (A lot for any purpose). All of the above bioses are noDVD and F+G versions comes as EEC, CCE, XBMC and X4G edition. Was not fun to edit all the bioses and ini's but, HELL why not right? Because of that I had to splitt up the FlashBios section because of to many versions. But that's quit nice IMO because now each "Bios Team" has his own section and the user can now choose in Unleash between: Flash iND, Flash EvoX, Flash Xecuter, Flash Retail, Flash Other, Flash Supporter. Looks and "feels" nice i think. - I removed all (F) only bios files. They don't have any use now days. - Added some more old Dashboards to play arround with. UnleashX v0.39.0515A UnleashX v0.30.000 UnleashX unofficial v0.20.904 - Added 2 Emulation Center. Final Burn Legends 1.2.6 and MAMEoXtras 2.1 u2.

  48. I was in the same boat looking for belts but didn't have time to wait, I didn't want to LOL. I went to dollar tree and bought the little rubber bands for girls hair. They seemed small but I figured I'd try and it worked LOL, They seem pretty thin so I put three on there and it works great. Probably wont last long but for $1 for 500 I cant complain!!!!
