  1. We may fall short of the magic that was X-S... but the goal is to become as much like it as possible. Your participation here is as valuable as any donation.
  2. Nichicon are good caps if they are authentic. There are certain sellers that slap a nichicon label on an inferior cap and resell it for more than it's worth.
  3. You missed the point. Your post was made under the premise that we exist to provide you with downloads. We don't. Nobody owes anybody else anything, and we certainly do not owe you or anyone else downloads. We exist to build a community and preserve the knowledge. The files exist NUMEROUS places. The knowledge is actually more scarce than the files since Xbox-Scene went under. So that's our purpose and that's why this rule isn't "f*cking dumb". The fact that this was spelled out in the OP and you STILL didn't get it means you are though.
  4. What do the caps on your board look like? Got any pix?
  5. I think an ODE would be VERY useful. ISO's of the entire library on a hdd connected as the dvd drive would free up the regular hdd for apps, media, and emulators. Softmodding would be incredibly easy. If this were running on something like a raspberry pi with gigabit nic, uploading games wouldn't take long at all. It could really expand the possibilities. If I had the know-how I would do it. I just don't at present.
  6. I bought it from him. I have acquired all of the original parts from one of these and built it back up into an alpha II tower. It is fully functional and will be preserved as such for as long as I live.
  7. Some of that gets installed when you use the xdk recovery disc. There are also uncompiled apps in some of the xdk installer discs.
  8. What chip do you have installed? Why did you use raincoat to flash your modchip? Typically that is only used for WInbond TSOPs.

  10. I know people get really tired of hearing this debate, but I'd like to make my position as clear as possible once and for all. First and foremost: The reason the LPC exists on the Xbox motherboard is because the TSOP is soldered to the board blank, and programmed via the lpc port later in the manufacturing process. When the TSOP is blank, the xbox then looks to the LPC for a bios image to boot. This is because a pre-programmed rom is more expensive than a blank eeprom (TSOP in this case). It also allowed Microsoft to more easily update the bios image in new Xboxes for whatever reason.
  11. If anyone cares, measuring the input to the m-atx psu, I supply it with 12.6vdc. On boot when the xbox is checking the dvd drive it draws 7.1 amps. That puts us at almost 90w. It drops to 5.1 amps at unleashx dash. It doesn't change much when running a game. That is with the DVD drive in and full 3.5" hdd. Obviously power consumption can be reduced by removing the dvd drive motors from the equation and using a 2.5" hdd, ssd, or some form of flash... which don't reduce the draw much at idle. That ~5 amps is kind of what we're stuck with. I've built a few that run on battery power and it's diffi
  12. This is a great post and I'm interested in taking it a bit further. It's ironic that SS Dave and I were sort of doing this at the same time. I just took a m-atx power supply and got it to work like the stock power supply on my 1.4 motherboard. I used an NPN transistor to more or less act like a relay. So when the POW ON signal goes high from the Xbox, the transistor holds the ATX POW ON line to ground. KSP 2222a. Pin 1 is emitter. Pin 2 is Base. Pin 3 is Collector. Pin 1 to gnd. pin 2 to xbox POW ON. Pin 3 to ATX POW ON. I also used some 5v to 3.3v step downs to c
  13. What are the voltages when plugged into your working board?
