  1. The shortcut file is always 64KB in size. Xbox hacked BIOSes have a boot order list. This list of xbe files is used to try to load an installed replacement dashboard. If the first in the list is not found, the second is tried; if it fails, the third xbe is tried; if it fails, the stock MS dashboard - xboxdash.xbe is executed. The shortcut created, evoxdash.xbe, is so named because it is the first XBE in the BIOS's boot order list; thus, loading the dashboard the user wants to run.
  2. From the size of C:\evoxdash.xbe, 64KB, I can tell it's an XBE Shortcut to your current dashboard - UnleashX. You need to use the Windows application XBE Shortcut Maker 2.0 and create a new file of the same name that runs the dashboard you want to use. Edit the Target XBE path to the default.xbe file of that dashboard. Upload this new evoxdash.xbe shortcut file to C:\.
  3. You can download the pre-built Xbox Softmodding Tool Extras Disc ISO file from Rocky5's google drive repository Xbox Softmod Kit Updates - Google Drive
  4. How do you have the modchip installed? Quicksolder, wires, pin header.
  5. Looks like one of @N163LPH03N1X's skins. He has several and is a member here. Check out his UnleashX Skins thread for more information:
  6. UnleashX v0.39.0528A Build 584 is the latest ever released. It has an FTP server bug that doesn't properly list the Xbox's root directory with the FileZilla FTP client. 0.39.0222A Build 572 doesn't have this bug. Rocky5's XBMC4gamers and his latest application XBMC-Emustation. From the CoinOps Xbox Project, multiple releases and editions of there applications are available: CoinOps 8 Massive, Lite, Gold, etc Dragon Ninja PREMIUM HyperVISION
  7. Wow, it was working when I posted the updated link a few weeks ago. I see in the emuxtras' forum that it died about a week ago. No new download link has been listed.
  8. Welcome to OGXbox.com Mod it or lose it, KaosEngineer
  9. Leaked electrolyte from the clock cap and/or contaminated PCB traces at production time have/has damaged the power control trace on the front edge - most likely in section 7 - on the bottom side of the motherboard.
  10. For a hardmodded Xbox, I believe Rocky5's Extras disc installs his dashboard loader as evoxdash.xbe in the root of the C drive. It has a much longer list of files it checks the presence of on the hard drive to be the default dashboard. The first file found in the following list will be the default dashboard. If you rename the folder of a dashboard higher on the list so it is not found, the next highest executable found will become the default dashboard. (change the name back to that of a higher listed file then reboot for it to be the default dashboard) C:\XBMC-Emustation\default.xbe E:\XBMC-Emustation\default.xbe F:\XBMC-Emustation\default.xbe C:\XBMC4Gamers\default.xbe E:\XBMC4Gamers\default.xbe F:\XBMC4Gamers\default.xbe C:\XBMC4Xbox\default.xbe E:\XBMC4Xbox\default.xbe F:\XBMC4Xbox\default.xbe C:\XBMC\default.xbe E:\XBMC\default.xbe F:\XBMC\default.xbe C:\dashboard\default.xbe E:\dashboard\default.xbe F:\dashboard\default.xbe C:\dash\default.xbe E:\dash\default.xbe F:\dash\default.xbe E:\default.xbe E:\dashboard.xbe C:\evoxdash.xbe E:\evoxdash.xbe C:\XBMC.xbe E:\XBMC.xbe
  11. Method 1 to Run XBMC4Gamers as the Default Dashboard Download the ind-bios.cfg file from the root folder of the Xbox's C drive. Use a text editor to modify the file. Generally, the last 3 lines contain the entries for the BIOS's dashboard boot order: DASH1=\Device\Harddisk0\Partition2\evoxdash.xbe DASH2=\Device\Harddisk0\Partition1\Dash\UnleashX\unleashx.xbe DASH3=\Device\Harddisk0\Partition1\Dash\EvolutionX\evoxdash.xbe Modify the DASH1= line to contain the path to XBMC4Gamers' default.xbe file. The partition names equate the to following drive letters: Partition2 = C Partition1 = E Partition 6 = F Partition 7 = G So, if XBMC4Gamers' default.xbe file is located at: F:\XBMC4Gamers\default.xbe the DASH1= line needs to read DASH1=\Device\Harddisk0\Partition6\XBMC4Gamers\default.xbe Method 2 to Run XBMC4Gamers as the Default Dashboard Using an XBE Shortcut Instead of editing ind-bios.cfg, you can create a shortcut file to upload as evoxdash.xbe to the root of the C drive. No need to edit the ind-bios.cfg file. Download: XBE Shortcut Maker v2.0 Run the Windows executable (dot exe file) from the location you extracted it to on your PC's hard drive. Change the Target Path to where XBMC4Gamers' default.xbe file is stored on your Xbox's hard drive. Next, click on the large Create Shortcut Xbe... button and save the shortcut with the name evoxdash.xbe. Upload this new shortcut file, evoxdash.xbe, to the root of the Xbox's C drive. Reboot and XBMC4Gamers should now be your default dashboard.
  12. Do you have a current limiting resistor in series with the LED? LED IDE connector / / pin 39 -------------|◄-------/\/\/\--------- +5Vdc k a 220 Ohm k = LED cathode short lead / flat side of the lens casing a = LED anode longer lead (more positive voltage side)

    Hdd Lock

    Possibly locked with ConfigMagic on the Xbox; thus, the master password has been set to TEAMASSEMBLY. Use Chimp 261812 to unlock it. Start Chimp and swap the DVD IDE connector to the 640GB HDD as you would if cloning. Use the SLAVE options to Unlock the drive using TEAMASSEMBLY as the password. If that doesn't work, try using the other option with the master password of XBOXSCENE. What brand is the 640GB SATA hard drive?
  14. You would not connect the LED's anode to both the 12V and 5V lines. You'd be shorting the PSU's 12Vdc and 5V output levels. Only 1, 5Vdc or 12Vdc, is needed and a properly sized current limiting resistor.
