I received it today and there is a mod chip! This is the one, it also plays dvd-raw, but there is no custom dash, So how do I go about flashing it and what to flash it with, now we know the mod chip name. I also replaced the dvd drive belt, and now it works great!
Will do man, I spoke to someone else who said this Sounds like everything is working as expected (modded with either Aladdin, AppleX V or similar "pleb" modchip and running EvoX BIOS). Also i read back what you posted and it makes more sense to me now, So again thank you, and i shall let you know how i get on.
Thank you for the info, at the moment none of this means nothing as i am very novice, I receive the xbox in three days, So i will let yo know then! Thanks for the advice
Hello i just brought a Crystal Xbox and i need some help. I have been speaking to the guy who sold it to me, He knows nothing about modding but has been super helpful, He brought the xbox of his friend before him, But his friends got the xbox of someone else before that. What i need help with is distinguishing weather the Xbox that i have brought has a mod chip or not? He tells me when he turns on the Xbox an Evo x logo come up in the top left corner. He also says it is region free, and plays DVDs without the dvd add on. I asked for more detail and this is what he told me and this is all he knows. The seller. Ok I’ve checked and you need to hold the power button down to get the evo x logo to show. Holding down the eject button or just simply pressing the power button boots it to the xboxdashboard. So I’m guessing that it has the chip but the bios needs flashing by connecting to a pc. I don’t have a clue how to do that. I know nothing about Xbox modding at all. If i have brought a modded Xbox then i may need some advice, on stuff like How to flash a bios on it, What bios to use? I would want to replace the CD rom drive as he says it is sticky and upgrade the HDD so i can install games to the HDD My problems is that i know 0 about modding original Xboxes. But i have some technical background and i have modded previous consoles. Thank you! Sorry for my lack on knowledge on the subject. I also brought a USB Adaptor Cable Cord for Xbox (Original) So i can use a usb on the xbox if needed. He says the The manufacture date of console is 18/6/2004 as well.
