  1. Cool, that seems like the hack alright! Do you still want the C, E and F bios drives, or would that be redundant since the hack is already archived elsewhere? Either way thanks' for all the help.
  2. Well that explains the booting / fragging issue then. The clock cap is most certainly dead on this puppy so it goes into a boot loop trying to load the clock screen. It somehow powers through it eventually though. Oh the innocent early modding scene that thought an exploit that relied on the clock cap was viable.
  3. Here's what I got, Looks like the kernel version is absent from this version of UnleashX. I put the dash version just in case that's of any use. I'll ftp over the folders in the morning. I also poked around a bit more and found the softmod menu, Included a pic of that too. Also this is probably a hardware issue but the picture appears to be... wobbling constantaly. I KNOW its not the cables. Its the official Microsoft Component cables & they work absolutely fine on my main XBOX unit. This one introduces a constant slight wobble. I know that's a hardware issue but I just thought I'd throw it out there. One more thing, the PSU appears to be aftermarket since it has the plug for the 1.0 and 1.4 boards (this one is a 1.0)
  4. Looks like the original owner loaded it up with emulators and roms. They don't appear to be up to date, but since they off loaded it, they probably didn't use it for a while.
  5. This is what displays on the screen for a moment when Phoenix is selected from the boot dash
  6. Here's the Modded "Stock" dash, kernel, and the UnleashX dash that it boots into upon selecting Phoenix
  7. I'll Check the kernel and get some photos
  8. Hello, I recently bought a used OG that was modified by its pervious owner. It appears to be a soft mod. The Xbox first boots into the stock MS dash, but with the "Xbox Live" tab replaced with "Phoenix" Selecting it boots into the UnleashX dash. I like this setup since I think the stock dash is cool, and has a better game saves system than any of the dash big replacements. However, when I first tested it out it was fragging, and the HDD (which was replaced at some point via chimp with a 128gb one) seems to be in poor shape based on the sounds it was making. I am considering on giving it a tsop flash for the sake of keeping it alive, but It would be cool if I could keep the dash replacement. Any info on this "Phoenix" softmod and its viability as a hardmod dash replacement would be great.
  9. Hello OG Xbox forums, I've worked myself into a pickle again. The short version: I need to get a file off of an HDD that throws an error 16 (won't boot, Corrupted dash) but still works. Can I get it off using a second Xbox and a file manager, or do I need to buy an adapter and use Xpolorer 360 to get it off? The long Version: While preparing to TSOP flash my Xbox, I was copying saves over from the had drive onto a memory card for safe keeping. However when that didn't work with the UnleashX dash I tried to switch over to the default dash. This corrupted the files and now the Xbox throws an error 16 whenever it tries to boot from the HDD. Since it is an error 16 I can't boot from disc since the Xbox preforms the time check before it checks the DVD drive, and since the Xbox was only softmoded I can't just format a new drive and throw it in. From what I've found online I can use CHIMP and my working TSOP'd Xbox to recover the dash files on this second one, however I need the EEPROM.bin file. Can I get it off using a file manager that can detect both drives using the working TSOP'd Xbox, can CHIMP find the EPROM.bin file on the slave HDD and recover from that, or do I need to purchase an IDE adapter to connect my Drive to a PC via XPLORER 360 and then transfer it over to the XBOX? Thanks.
  10. Get the new UIX Lite dashboard on there! A lot of the dash replacements seem like they want to "upgrade" and "modernize" the look of the Xbox dash, but for me personally the look and feel of the Original dash is really cool. UnleashX comes close but its not the same. UIX Lite does an amazing job at retaining everything that made the OG dash what it is, Without the instability of the original UIX dash. I know that UIX Lite is lacking in a lot of features, but as long as you have the other dashes installed as apps you're fine.
  11. Woah, didn't know the servers were still up a month after Live 1.0's execution date! How many people were actually on during that post-mortem period? Could you still find matches a month out?
  12. Cool! so even back in the day one person could pick up the disc, rip the content, and then share it around to all their friends. That's just crazy to me, considering Microsoft won't even let you play your OG games in a Series X without the disc being present, despite the content being installed on the hdd. Are they really that concerned that people will rip & resell their 20 year old games that they already made their money on al long time ago?
  13. Hello, OG Xbox noob here. I was wondering how expansions & DLC were handled on the OG Xbox since I don't have any on hand to mess around with. Stuff like the Halo 2 multiplayer map pack & the DOA 3 Booster disc. (those are the only two I know of that were released physically, if there are any others let me know.) was it all just copied from the disc to the hard drive? If so was there any form of copy protection? If you have a modded console with games ripped to the hard drive do expansions still work properly?
  14. Just looking at that picture makes me think its a prototype for a memory card slot based series of retro controlers that you daisy chain through the Xbox controllers like the Panasonic 3DO. Awesome stuff.
  15. Man I wish I knew this a few days ago, I actually effed up pretty bad while trying to troubleshoot. I thought that what was happening was the BIOS was looking for a dashboard to boot to and that the softmod dash was incompatible. (Not too far off but wrong in a few key areas.) I booted into the extras disc and attempted to install one of the hardmod compatible dashboards. Big mistake. It errored out and wiped the whole C partition. I was panning on installing and building a new hard drive anyway, so once I get the right IDE cables in from amazon I'll just build a new drive from one of the boot discs, but it sucks that I no longer have the stock HDD to fall back on. I figured that doing a hardmod from a fresh softmod with the extras disc would be relatively safe since they were built to work with one another but I learned my lesson to not make assumptions with this kind of stuff. If I ever find another cheap Xbox out in the wild I'll know for next time its just a matter of deleting one file.
