  1. gonna take me some time anyway, I have to do some trial and error to get that one right lol
  2. I like that idea! purple/black marble would look great, im going to look into that for a future build.
  3. The pearl white looks great, the pictures could not do it justice. It sold in only a few hours. I have 2 more ready for paint, anyone have an opinion on what colors I should go with for them?
  4. Here is the pearl white and deep blue one I just finished, about to list it. its nearly the same as the red one except for the DVD kit from a ghostcase, and the colors.
  5. I put the LED's in all 4 ports, 2 for the DVD drive, 2 to light the jewel, and replace the 2 in the power/eject board. Cutting the DVD window is tricky. I use an old DVD disc centered over the jewel to round that off, and the rest I take out what I can without cutting out any plastic that maintains strength of the top cover. I use a dremel to make the cuts, then hone it in with files. Then a green scrubby pad for sanding. It takes quite a bit of time, but makes the cuts appear factory. For the port numbers and bezel "XBOX" I use an oil based pen.
  6. Also, I add LED's in the DVD drive on all my builds
  7. 420 may or may not be coincidence, I do not exhale lol! Thank you Dave. 1) I build the LED circuit, putting the LED's on the end of a wire. then I drill a hole in back of the controller port the perfect size for the LED to pop in. that way they can be removed for service. 2)I usually do paint the cage, I like them looking sharp when I open them. makes them look complete. 3)I am open to ideas on window cuts, do you know a better way to do it without getting into the side fins?
  8. Thank you TEK! I am over OCD, when I get a part 100% clean I put it in a ziplock bag. I know people don't care, but I cant skip steps if I wanted. I actually tried lol! I agree on the video cords, but the good cords are expensive. I figure I will set them up for 720P and they can get the $70 authentic component cable, or I would direct them to frank for a WII2HDMI.
  9. I rarely post anything. Just wondering what people think about the painted case, DVD window, and jewel. I would like to improve future builds, I plan on making a bunch and retiring. may sell my whole collection soon. I use 2TB drives because some people believe I'm wasting space since Xbox Linux only sees 2.2TB. My personal are 3TB. Almost all of my builds are 128mb RAM upgrades, some of my favs will not work on a standard Xbox. Every inch is clean as a whistle, you can lick the motherboard it is cleaner than the plate in your cupboard (except the other OCD people). I don't say that in the listing so there's no need for a disclaimer lol! AS A NOTE! UNPLUG BEFORE YOU LICK! Rocky5, Cian, and others did an awesome job creating XBMC4Gamers! I had several people ask me to build some more Xbox's just to implement this great dashboard mod. Honestly, it fired me up and I had to get involved again once I threw it on a hard drive and took it for a spin. I literally deleted most of the years of work setting up artwork for XBMC4Xbox, they pulled off a great feat collecting so many cover scans. Anyway, any advice, information, or opinions are welcome. Thank you. https://www.ebay.com/itm/113791001671 Of course if this is not allowed please delete this.
  10. YES! connect the Xbox DO point to ground to boot the chip. without the bank switch connected it is in bank 2 with no protection so you can flash it. then it will load the chip bios every time and you can use it normally.
  11. No problem! good luck, im sure you can get it going
  12. one of the ground pads by the screws is good
  13. The DO point on the xbox should have a wire connected from the modchip, usually a grey wire. if you instead jump the wire from the xbox DO point to ground, it tells the xbox to boot right to the modchip. if you ground the DO and disconnect the switch, it will boot the chip unprotected on bank 2 and you can flash it.
