  1. I have a 1.0 model xbox with a faulty 3rd party PSU installed by a previous owner, I also have a 1.4 with a bad video out port that I use as a parts console. I was wondering if there is anywhere I could buy a 1.4 PSU to 1.0 PSU adapter so I can swap the 1.4 PSU in, or if there is a pinout diagram so I can do the pin swap myself. Thanks
  2. Its cool, KaosEngineer knows a lot me than me, thats for sure. I figured I would share my experience and solution, but softmods are inherently tricky to deal with. Better to take the advice of the pros.
  3. A similar thing happened to me recently, I was using Xplorer 360 to put a new dashboard on my chipped xbox's HDD but when i put it back in, the E drive was completely erased and didn’t even show up when I plugged back into the computer. I ended up needing to use FATXplorer beta 3.0 to reformat the drive from scratch and then put the new dashboard files to get it to boot normally. Not entirely sure this is feasible on a soft-mod, but the first step would probably be to: Back up your C Drive to your computer Reformat the drive with FATXplorer Re-insert your C Drive folders Re lock your drive. As for recovering XBMC as your default, soft mods are more complicated in how they boot to an alternate dash so I would probably use the disc (Hexen, RockyV's extras, ect) you used to install the softmod and see if it has a set default dash option. If its a 1.0-1.4 model Xbox I would recommend TSOP flashing it. It makes recovery a lot easier when stuff like this happens. Keep in mind i've only ever softmodded my systems long enough to get them Hardmodded, so you may want to wait for someone who knows more about them than me. Good luck with your, recovery effort.
  4. 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.
  5. 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.
  6. 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)
  7. 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.
  8. This is what displays on the screen for a moment when Phoenix is selected from the boot dash
  9. Here's the Modded "Stock" dash, kernel, and the UnleashX dash that it boots into upon selecting Phoenix
  10. I'll Check the kernel and get some photos
  11. 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.
  12. 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.
  13. 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.
  14. 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?
  15. 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?
