  1. Hi guys, I posted this on a few xbox groups and thought i'd share it here too. I basically remove the jewel, use a dremel to make a circular hole where the jewel was and then attached a round 800 x 800 pixel (3.4") lcd. The video is provided by a small media player such as the Sumvision Cyclone +2 but i am also going to set it up with a raspberry pi zero to save space. Using the small media player means having to lose the dvd rom due to space confinements. The interface between the lcd and media player is a HDMI to MIPI pcb with 50 pin flat ribbon cable, you can find them on most china electronics websites. The video is just some boot videos i found and stitched together. This media player can loop playback on start up provided the video is placed in a folder in the root of an SD card or USB stick named AUTOPLAY
  2. it's just an idea, i think if you heated it up sufficiently it would come off ok but i've not tried so don't quote me on that
  3. you could use some gpu ones such as these: https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/StarTech-1U-Socket-7-370-CPU-Cooler-Fan-With-Copper-Heatsink/401813797321?ssPageName=STRK%3AMEBIDX%3AIT&_trksid=p2060353.m1438.l2649 and attach them with thermal adhesive
  4. 1.6 xboxes have what's considered the worst video encoder of all versions plus you can't ram upgrade plus v1.0/1.1 boards have a 1mb tsop so it can be split and flashed.
  5. Unfortunately size wise the higher wattage pico psu's are too big for my xbox mini so I'm currently limited to the 160XT. I am using a 2.5" hdd already, as I said it works it's just not as perfect as I would like. The board I am using has 128mb ram so I'd rather use that than a v1.6 board
  6. Interesting project, I'm using a pico psu (160XT) with atx to xbox adapter and due to the low amperage on the 5v line the xbox struggles to initially boot as there are a lot of capacitors that need charging. I resolved this slightly by removing 3 of the start up capacitors on a v1.0 xbox and while it works I'd prefer a much more professional and reliable solution
  7. Looking to sell my X3CP xbox. It's a 1.6 with a 2tb hdd and startech sata to IDE adapter with 80 wire IDE cable. The hdd isn't a fully loaded one, it allows you to put the content on that you want but does have xbmc4gamers front end and a few games/emulators on there. The Xerc 2 XE allows you to turn the console on/off via the official dvd remote and also fades the eject button LED's on and off when in standby. No controllers included, but I can include a dvd remote if required (albeit with out battery cover) Video of the actual xbox here: £350 plus postage from the UK. Postage will depend where you are obviously. PM for more info
  8. I had a white XCM but sold it a few months back for $500
  9. Best success rate on burned media for me back in the day was a combination of using imgburn, ritek dye based dvd-r (datawrite) and a pioneer dvr-108 ide model dvd-rw
  10. I think i'm using 5849, they all probably have it though as it's kind of needed. Heres a (very roughly made) little tribute to this site as a thanks for keeping the OG xbox relevant today
  11. it's 2.1 which is included with the XDK, it's not a separate available download, I have searched for it but not found it on its own. I've made a load of .x models to replace the xbox text, is it ok to upload them here so other people can mod their own bios's? I won't provide the x2 4981 bios, just the tools and premade .x models to mod it. EDIT: to fix the angled text it was simply a case of unticking ALL tickboxes before exporting from deep exploration (except "turn to left" and "ascii" as a .x file, literally all the tabs on the export window
  12. All fixed, I've made about 40 .x models now, see example in link
  13. it's ok I found it. It's actually in the XDK, well version 2.1 is which works perfectly.
  14. Have you tried patching the xbe with the 1ghz patcher app? It's not a waste of money at all, other emulators benefit from the extra ram such as mame for example
