  1. I must have turned off notifications to this. Yes I have the external switch board still, works wonders other than the adhesive.
  2. Scratch that I'm just dumb and renamed the wrong BIOS earlier. X2 5035 512 Old version renamed to bios.bin and stuffed into the C:\BIOS directory worked just fine. Just going to upgrade XBMC and I'll be good to go. I appreciate the replies. Thank you again.
  3. Yep I learned that the hard way last night heh. That was mostly my point in chipping it... the bigger BIOS. I tried a few - The X2_5035 512 and no picture (waited 10 minutes in case the config had to kick in) - Tried the X2.4983 512 and it just sat at the Xecuter splash screen. - But then I tried the X2.4983 256 and it did the same as the 512. When I flash I load the XBOX off Bank 2 that goes to old XBMC 2.00. Then I load FlashX 1.2 from programs (after I FTP a bios into C:\BIOS) and use that. I thought the Xecuter 2.2 Lite Solderless had 2 banks... both 512. I'm probably just doing something wrong. But anyway FlashX always shows 4 BIOS no matter what so maybe it's just not supported. Is there a better way to flash? (other than discs, although that is an option because the drive works).
  4. Yep it can. Ahh i'm already past all that. It's soldered in and bootable in both banks on that BIOS. Was just wondering if I can flash it to anything else. I've been outta the game too long.
  5. Thanks! I bought a pinheader, removed the springs and soldered it on (and wire soldered the d0 and adjacent pin) Question though, I don't remember how big the banks are on this thing. If I remember it's 512 per bank, totaling 1mb but I'm not sure. Also I'm currently on BIOS Xecuter2 4980.06. Is there anything else to go to other than the latest one I found on XBINS (4983.67)
  6. Hi everyone. What Xecuter MOD Chip is this? I tried browsing the stickies but couldn't find a matching picture. The only thing I remember is that this was solderless. Also, is there a diagram somewhere that I can solder it into the XBOX instead? Thanks in advance.
  7. That was one of my initial troubleshoots. I put the good one into the broken one, same picture issue. I put the original locked softmodded hard drive in there too and same picture issue. If it never worked after the TSOP flash it would make sense, but working for a week and then breaking is throwing me for a loop. It never moved from the spot and I never opened it back up after the fact. Unless just being in the box for 3 years, then being on/off for a week started degrading something on the board, I'm not sure. what else. Thanks for the replies btw.
  8. No such luck on any of those. Both sets of component cables don't work on the problem XBOX, but work fine on the working XBOX on both NTSC televisions with and without the OSSC. I cleaned the pads again under the mobo but nothing. I forgot to take a pic of the mobo which I'll try to do later today.
  9. Yes I own the official high definition pack as well as the official (I guess second revision?) all in one component cable. ill bypass the OSSC and can probably try a different LED tv
  10. Yes NTSC XBOX and NTSC LED Samsung TV. Ah yes I forgot I tried to load the TruHexen2019 disc as well but on Component only. Same exact issue, the except it’s of course the Hexen menu that flashes on screen. I’ll try to take a pic of the mobo later as well and a video of the actual occurrence.
  11. Sorry, here's additional information - The dash never really loads to the point that I can control it. I meant to say that when a picture finally does show after the Microsoft intro, it's just mere flashes of the Unleash X dashboard. So I guess it's loaded in general, but I can't see it for more than half a second. - I do not use an IDE to SATA adapter - The working XBOX is 1.1 with Chip Type: ST M29F002BT70N1 - The problematic XBOX is 1.2 with Chip Type: Hynix HY29F002 - I flashed both XBOXes with the same BIOS; the one labeled EVOX F and G using the TruHexen2019 Disc - Both XBOXes were softmodded with the King Roach tool on the TruHexen2019 Disc after the TSOP flash - The UnleashX dashboard is the default one from the aforementioned softmod (on both XBOXes) - I'm not forcing any resolutions Additional troubleshooting - Before I TSOP flashed it, they were both already softmodded with locked hard drives - Both received the exact same model 500 gb Western Digital Blue IDE hard drive with a master jumper setting - I swapped the new hard drives and both of the new 500gb IDE HDDs work in the old 1.1 XBOX, and both still have issues in the new 1.2 XBOX - I put the original locked hard drive back into the problematic 1.2 XBOX and the same video issue happened (which loaded and contained a very old version of XBMC) on Component, composite worked like before Things I've yet to try (that I'll do when I get home later tonight) - I'll swap the IDE cables when I get home between the 2 XBOXes just in case it's something simple like that - I'll clean the pads and shielding under the MoBo like you suggested I haven't tried other dashboards. I won't be able to get the exact version of the current dash until I get home and load up the working xbox.
  12. Hi, it's been awhile since I've touched my XBOX. Background Information: - It's either a 1.1 or a 1.2 - Gave it a thorough cleaning - I bridged the solder points and TSOP flashed it with no issues - Removed the time capacitor - It's connected to an OSSC via the Official Microsoft XBOX Component Cables - I have a second XBOX that's also either a 1.1 / 1.2 that I did all the aforementioned things to that plays just fine. - The XBOX was working fine for over a week Issue: - The XBOX turns on fine, and the Microsoft Introduction Plays - The screen flashes once (as does my other one) before it tries to boot the HDD - Usually right after the introduction, it used to load right into the Unleash X dashboard, but now the screen stays blank for a good 20-30 seconds before I see a very unstable image of Unleash X main menu go across the screen. - It seems like the XBOX cannot hold the picture steady and keeps changing resolutions. Things I tried: - Replaced the 3x 6.3v 3300 capacitors near the CPU as one was bulging - Used the official Microsoft XBOX Composite Cables that boots normally and the picture comes up fine I'm not sure if it's just old and other things are going on the board. All the other capacitors seem to be fine on the motherboard itself, although I haven't really looked at the PSU yet. I'm mostly new to this so I'm not sure what to look for in terms of the composite working but not the component since both cables work fine on the other XBOX. Thanks in advance.
