  1. Hey dave! How have you been? Thanks alot for your reply! This is good news. I'm looking forward to upgrading my xbox witch both mods then... Just have to wait a couple of months until the hdmi-mod arrives. Grretings Bot
  2. Hey folks It has been some time since I last posted. Hope you're doing well... What have you been up to? I recently preordered the new version of the HDMI+ mod from MakeMhz which will arrive in july and i wanted to upgrade one of my my existing xboxes with it. Since I'm going to solder anyway and i got some RAM chips laying around, i thought about upgrading the RAM as well. In this regard, i was wondering if there is a BIOS that supports both (HDMI and 128MB RAM). Is the MakeMHz-BIOS taking advantage of 128MB RAM? Does somebody have some experince with this?
  3. hi @irlandez! my concideration is simple: first and foremost, i want people to contribute to this forum (as registering, browsing the forum and maybe posting some questions/answers or even buying a membership) rather than just browsing and getting the desired stuff for free and leave. this is one reason why i'm not sharing the keys in a forum post. at least one will have to register and drop me a message. it's not that hard asking for something... and if people are too lazy to register, well i suppose they don't really need what they are looking for. the second reason is, that i
  4. @Markin: look in you inbox, there's something waiting for you. for all others stumbling upon this topic: regarding the keys to mega.com, i'm not going to post them publically here, but feel free to leave me a message and i will get to you. greetings bot
  5. hi i have replaced the fans in 2 of my original xboxes. i tried cleaning them before, but the bearings inside these fans can in fact go bad, and replacing the fans was easier for me than fixing the bearings of the og-fans... i went with bequiet pure wings 80mm. these fans do a superb job! since they are slightly larger than the originals, i had to modify the hdd-caddy and dvd-caddy a little bit (search for "original xbox 80mm fan mod") and cut off 2 edges of the fans (which is very simple to do with the pure wings-series of fans). result: temps are ok, but the boxes are definitely n
  6. Hi dave! This looks very promising to me, how is your project coming along? Greetings Bot
  7. Hey guys and gals! how is it going? My first attempts at clearing the jewels of my 2 xboxes turned out pretty shitty to be honest. i was wondering if there is a place where i can order replacements. I know you're going to laugh fanatically and point you fingers at me, but hear me out: i'm not talking about original, official jewel-replacements! rather a place where you can buy the exact size and shape of acrylic glass that the original xbox jewel has. i dont care if it has the "XBOX" letters edged into it, since i could also imagine painting some of them with eddings or other c
  8. sorry, i forgot. i sent it to you guys via pm just a couple of seconds ago.
  9. Hey Folks, hey @KaosEngineer and @neighbor! hope you guys are doing well? So today, I ripped the DVD with my XBox. i ripped it with 2 different modes (iso and raw), created a Mega-Account and uploaded all the files, they are ready to go. I also scanned the artwork (front, back and DVD) for you guys (just in case you want to print it out or use it digitally). Here are the links: Raw DVD-Files: https://mega.nz/#F!rZh1SbQL .iso DVD-Files: https://mega.nz/#F!fJoBFRjK Artwork: https://mega.nz/#F!GI4HVLiQ so, start you machines and get downloading!
  10. thanks for the tip! i will do this tomorrow...
  11. Hi! Hmm... This seems like a good way to go in my opinion. Do you know of any combo that fits the xbox without the need for big modifications? @big F cool, that you opened this thread, as i was going to ask the same question... I'm planning on slim-modding one of my boxes i have lying around. With the use of such a combo, you could (in theory) make the box even slimmer than most existing mods... Like, 90s-style-laptop-slim at least! Greetings! Bot
  12. okay. i will hopefully be able to do so tomorrow, and i will post a link to my gdrive to get the .iso. is there any chance we could move the file to the download-section later on? i don't have a lot of space left on my google drive and i'm sure i'll need it for other stuff later on. greetings bot
  13. UPDATE: found two exemplars of this disc via ebay, but it seems pretty rare. @KaosEngineer would you be interested in an .iso? greetings bot
  14. Hi all Going to throw in my 2 cents, although they're probably not worth much: The HDD-timeout-error is strange... I myself have 2x modded xboxes which each rock a 2TB WD Green drive, and IGR works fine no matter what (in game, from homebrew, menus, dash, after idling for long time, etc.). Does somebody know the exact command that IGR (in game reset) triggers when executed? Maybe it's not an issue of the spinup time of the hdd but rather the command itself which points to another (probably wrong) directory to load the dash. In this case the xbox is not able to find the default d
  15. Nice job! I think it looks great. Greetings Bot
  16. nice job! these look pretty good. do you already have a price in mind? greetings bot
  17. lol, i like this quote more than the last one
  18. Hey folks! Nothing too special here, but I finished refurbishing my og xbox. it's a v1.2 which i bought back in 2002. here's the work i've done: - removed clock cap - replaced 3 caps that went bad - hard-modded the box and flashed with evox, xbmc is stock dash now - replaced stock-fan with 80mm bequiet silentwings (and therefore trimmed the hdd- and dvd-tray a little bit) - installed green controller port-leds - installed blue and white power- and eject-button leds - cleared jewel, repainted the silver "xbox" letters with gold paint (turned out shit
  19. sir, i'm no one to judge, but i think you have a problem!
  20. the text is in german and reads something on the lines of: "feel the difference! dvd with games, which have never been seen before, exclusive previews of games which aren't even available yet and videos from:" fischerspooner, gorillaz, ministry of sound, primal scream.
  21. hey guys! not sure if this is the right sub, but well... recently i was clearing out my basement and stumbled across an official XBox Promotional DVD (pics attached below). If I remember correctly, these DVDs were given out to people preordering the system in europe (although I'm not sure about this)... Anyway, the disc is packed with cool artsy dvd-menus, game-trailers, demos and other stuff like the official "life is short, play more"-commercial (you know which one), etc. I have no clue if this DVD is really rare, but I think it's worth asking and this is definitely the r
  22. Thought this would help. Make sure to scroll through the entire post though, they seem to have updated/completed their lists quite some times... Greetings Bot_1
  23. Hi guys and welcome to the forum! Since you are talking about replacing caps: some time ago, i found a excellent post in another forum listing all the caps for the different xbox versions. Have a look: https://www.badcaps.net/forum/showthread.php?t=48951 Greetings and happy modding! Bot
  24. thank you for this tutorial! it was incredibly useful, straighforward and also calming! even for a guy like me, that doesn't solder that often it was easy to understand and go through. thanks again! good job!
