  1. I use a PCB like this. You solder the wii2hdmi to the larger board 1st and solder the correct small board (Lower) to the Xbox then solder the two together. Cheers SS Dave Soft modding is like masturbating, It gets the job done but it's nothing like the real thing.
  2. It looks like there is a leg of the transistor and the leg from the diode at the arrows If thats the case you can link with any wire but you will need to clean the legs of the components to get the solder to take properly.

  3. They are not resistors they are inductors and yes you could take the signal before the inductor but Why?? Cheers SS Dave Soft modding is like masturbating, It gets the job done but it's nothing like the real thing.
  4. Sound like the hard drive is fully messed up I would use a install disk and format the HDD and start again. Cheers SS Dave Soft modding is like masturbating, It gets the job done but it's nothing like the real thing.
  5. The easy way is fit a modchip then you can replace the HDD and use a install disk to set up the new drive. The other way is to make a eeprom reader to get the hard dive key then to can use PC based program to make a new had drive. Cheers SS Dave Soft modding is like masturbating, It gets the job done but it's nothing like the real thing.
  6. When the mod chip is active you can use C and E drives and it's recommended to install xbmc4gamers dashboard to E drive anyway and C drive is to small to be of any real use other than a boot drive. Cheers SS Dave Soft modding is like masturbating, It gets the job done but it's nothing like the real thing.
  7. Sometimes the server that has the xbmc4gamers files can reach it's upload limit for it's 24hour period. Try again in a couple of hours of the next day. Cheers SS Dave Soft modding is like masturbating, It gets the job done but it's nothing like the real thing.
  8. You could try the 3 wire trick as the 1.0-1.1 is a 1024kb bios that would have been split it to 4 banks and one of the banks may still have a working bios file. Other wise replace the bios chip with one from a parts 1.0-1.1 Cheers SS Dave Soft modding is like masturbating, It gets the job done but it's nothing like the real thing.
  9. This should help https://consolemods.org/wiki/Xbox:List_of_Special_Edition_Consoles Cheers SS Dave Soft modding is like masturbating, It gets the job done but it's nothing like the real thing.
  10. The evoxdash.xbe on C drive is a shortcut and the dash will be in E , F or G drive under a apps folder. What size HDD is it? Cheers SS Dave Soft modding is like masturbating, It gets the job done but it's nothing like the real thing.
  11. I tested setting the clock in the Original Dash and the clock setting in the X3 config screen and also letting the clock set via the network and it made difference. When the X3 bios was written they probably didn't think the Xbox would still be in use past 2020 ( who did think in 20 years time people would still be using the OG Xbox ) and the same happened with the Aid soft-mod files. Maybe if the R3DUX project (X3 clone ) continues they may fix the bug in the X3 bios or totally rewrite it .

  12. About 1/2 wat long the front there looks like there maybe some thing. If you grab a meter an test the two spots ( blue and purple) in this pic they should test a close to 0ohm that will confirm a problem if they test open circuit. If they don't test 0 ohm then add a wire link( use wire wrap wire) Cheers SS Dave Soft modding is like masturbating, It gets the job done but it's nothing like the real thing.
  13. I tested X3_1943_gold, X3_2914, X3_3284, X3_3292 and all gave the same result, Any time from 00:01hrs 01.01.2020 all versions will reset the time/date back to 2004 Cheers SS Dave Soft modding is like masturbating, It gets the job done but it's nothing like the real thing.
  14. I tested that with 2 different Xbox's (1.6 and 1.1) and it did the same when booting direct to the dash and not loading the X3 menu 1st and the clock gets scrambled every time but not with the X2 or Ind on the 1.1, The 1.6 gets reset to 1/1/1900 on the Evox dash and 1/1/2000 in the M$ dash every time you power cycle it. It made no difference if the clock as set via the net then unplug the network cable and power cycle then the clock was scrambled or the clock setting in the M$ dash it did the same. When I get bit more time I will test the older versions of X3 bios. Cheers SS Dave Soft modding is like masturbating, It gets the job done but it's nothing like the real thing.
  15. As long as the Xbox is dry it will be fine but if you are concerned then by all means test it 1st with nothing else connected You could power the Xbox up with the AV lead plugged in to the Xbox but not your screen 1st and as long as the xbox boots with out any flashing leds then it will be good to connect to your screen. Cheers SS Dave Soft modding is like masturbating, It gets the job done but it's nothing like the real thing.
  16. I tested this with a X3cp with the X3 bios and yes the date gets scrambled on each boot where the X2-5035 and Ind 5004 bios didn't reset the date/time I haven't noticed it before as my Xbox's are connected to the home network and the date/time is set automatically Cheers SS Dave Soft modding is like masturbating, It gets the job done but it's nothing like the real thing.
  17. What dash are you using? Cheers SS Dave Soft modding is like masturbating, It gets the job done but it's nothing like the real thing.
  18. It could be damaged traces from a leaking clock cap or possibly the cap's near the heat sink. Best to open it up and have a look, If you are unsure post some images of the insides Cheers SS Dave Soft modding is like masturbating, It gets the job done but it's nothing like the real thing.
  19. For the Ind bios look for ""FANSPEED=10 ;Fan Speed 10-50 = 20-100% Default=10"" in the ind-bios.cfg file And the X2 look for ""; speed of xbox fan, value 10 equals 20%, value 50 equals 100% fanSpeed = 15"" in the x2config.ini file Save the config file to your PC edit the file then FTP back to he Xbox and reboot. Cheers SS Dave Soft modding is like masturbating, It gets the job done but it's nothing like the real thing.
  20. I have a preference to re-flashing the onboard bios over a modchip anyway, And 98% of users never need a 2nd bios file. I have 2 of the X2.6 chips and one had a dirty bank switch When you flash that chip if you want both banks to be different you need to have both bios files combined into one file and just about any chip flash program should work. Cheers SS Dave Soft modding is like masturbating, It gets the job done but it's nothing like the real thing.
  21. I would open it up and look for any signs of corrosion then if's reasonably clean then power it on. You can always upload some pics here if you are not sure. Cheers SS Dave Soft modding is like masturbating, It gets the job done but it's nothing like the real thing.
  22. I would use the net flash option Have the Xbox connected to your network Select Net flash and it will give you a ip address On your PC open any net browser and type the IP address in the address bar at the top. You then follow the prompts. Tip after you have connected to the Xbox via the network change the bank switch to the other bank, Ant there is no need to make the 256kb bios into a 512kb file. Cheers SS Dave Soft modding is like masturbating, It gets the job done but it's nothing like the real thing.
  23. Yes, But if you are not 100% sure of what you're doing on a PSU don't touch it. Pot a pic of the melted trace. Cheers SS Dave Soft modding is like masturbating, It gets the job done but it's nothing like the real thing.
  24. The clock cap is been charged at 2.4 volt by the components next to it so it is close to it's rated voltage of 2.5 volt, I would suspect the clock cap may be short circuit and or the charging circuit has a shorted cap. I had a Xbox with a leaking clock cap in for repair around 15 years ago and I also noticed that the cap failed and damaged the traces more often in tropical locations. Inside the red box is the 2.4 volt regulator an I have seen pics of the 2 caps in yellow that have burnt the board from a possible short Over the years (40 +) of working with electronics the super caps are always the 1st one to fail followed by the low value high voltage caps used in CRT TV's but all electrolytic caps will fail. With the clock cap removed test the voltage across the points where the cap was and you should have just under 2.5 volt in standby.

  25. Yes that is correct, so you could have the 512kb bios loading xbmc4gamers and the 256kb loading Emustation or they could both load the same dash. Cheers SS Dave Soft modding is like masturbating, It gets the job done but it's nothing like the real thing.
