  1. Thank you, that clears out everything
  2. Hi! I just picked up a 1.0 that a guy was selling as not tested. It had never been opened and you could see the dust from the side of the case, so I decided to open it up to clean it and check the clock capacitor before actually testing it. The thing is, when I took out the fan the sticker on the bottom was this one in photo. And the tiny cpu cooler fan seems to be 12v too. I've ever heard that og fans were 6v, but as the fan I removed from this 1.0 was spinning like it was new, I tested it on my TSOP flashed 1.2 and it worked just like the previous one. So are the og fans actually
  3. I've got a question about shortcuts on xbmcorigins with UI update installed. Is it normal to only be able to select games as shortcuts? I know emulators require custom addon.xml to do it, but I am actually trying to have apps available as shortcuts. Like DVD2Xbox and other stuff. I don't know how to write an addon.xml, so even if it would make the apps show up as selectable I won't be able to do it. Is there some kind of template I can follow to learn how to write one? Another quick question, since I only use coinops for emulation, could I place the folder in F\Games so it sho
  4. Oh I see. It is definitely more difficult than I thought... I'm going to buy an OGX360, it is just a it of my budget at the moment. (Consider I would have to buy the board, the adapter and a controller). I have a wireless keyboard from Trust that my parents bought to use on the tv. Since it worked out great at first try (even the mouse, that I've heard is difficult to get to work on te xbox) I thought it would be possible to just find a pair of transmitter/receiver that is known to work. But seems that I will have to learn a little bit more about how this things actually work befor
  5. Not sure if this is the right place to post this. Also, if it's stupid I'm sorry, I don't really know anything about electronics yet. I'm thinking about the possibility to convert the memory units ports of the S controller to put in a lithium battery and something like a bluetooth transmitter. I'm totally noob, so actually I don't know if this would actually work, with a usb bluetooth receiver plugged in or wired to one of the controller ports. Since it is the original controller no drivers would be needed and it should work like it was plugged in with a cable. I was also thinking ab
  6. Ok, I got it. Now I need a decent soldering iron. I'll try as soon as I find one and will write here if it works. Thanks again for helping me!
  7. Wow, thank you! Are R3, R4 and resistor these three? And what is the centre pad? Sorry, I haven't even installed the chip, I don't know anything about electronics. I'm slowly learning while restoring my xboxes.
  8. Hi! I just finished setting up my 1.2 og xbox with xbmc origins + UI update and just wanted to share the custom splash.png ad the wallpapers that I made. They make the setup look very clean so I tought someone could want to use them too. I made the combo wallpaper+splash in 3 color options: green-blue, magenta-blue, yellow-orange. Thought it would be cool to have a fanart pic and some custom covers for apps. They're not the best, due to the fact that I couldn't find enough good pictures while making them, but work well together. Here you have the final effect (with transparency enabl
  9. Reboot directly when I tried to flash. Could it be because it sees the chip as a 002A?
  10. I tried hexen 2018 and 2020, than I tried installing the evox dash directly on my E drive but didn't have any luck. The process stopped every time on "erasing". I have used XBlastOS, but it just restarted the console without any changes. Everything above with every possible boot mode (1, 2, 5 seconds ecc)
  11. Thanks to you all for the advices, I thought it could be an Aladdin XT 4032 (this also shows why I couldn't boot in any different mode, since 4032 chips only have on or off mode), but has just XenoFx written on the top side. I looked at this topic: and managed to take a closer look to that chip tonight. Fund out it has a 49LF002B, which is a non flashable chip, right? (Don't remember where did I read it)

    XenoFx chip

    Hello to you all! I'm new here, so there are tons of things that I have to learn about my original xboxes. I've been modding them for like a year now and learned everything I know from forums like this one. Now I have a problem with my 1.6 Xbox. I bought it as non tested/spare parts, then found out it had a modchip installed and really only needed some good cleaning. The problem is the chip is a XenoFx, and I can't find enough informations about it anywhere. I want to flash a newer bios on it to fully recognise my 250gb hdd, but it seems to be write protected. I tried everything pow
