  1. You did unsolder the 1.6 bridge on the OpenXenium? Which pad on the bottom of the motherboard did you connect D0 to? Not to say you have it on the wrong pad but I have helped others before that had it off by one. Edit: Post a pictures of the soldering.

    XboxHDM USB

    Try the beta 3 release of XboxHDM23USB. Although, I'm afraid it will do the same thing. Or, try low-level formatting the hard drive with HDDGuru's HDD LLF Low Level Format Tool then re-run XboxHDM. Edit: Another thing to try, test the hard drive with Seagate's SeaTools for Windows application to make sure it is working properly. SeaTools (Windows) | Seagate (oops, that's an older version 1.4.0.4) The latest release is available on this page - Software and Firmware Downloads | Seagate Support US
  3. What type of problem are you having with the LEDs? Which LED and resistor value did you use (part number of the LED)? Online LED Calculator - Current Limiting Resistor Calculator for LED(s) What are the specs of the LEDs you installed? Need to know their forward voltage drop (Vf) and maximum current rating. Generally, an LEDs Vf value is 2 Vdc and the maximum current rating is 20mA; however, not all LEDs have the same exact specifications. Vs = Vf + I(led) * Current limiting resitor value For example: 5 Vdc = 2 Vdc + 20 mA (0.02 Amps) * R Ohms (5 V - 2 V)/ 0.02 Amps = R R = 150 Ohms However, using a slightly larger resistor value is better to keep the current flowing through the LED below its maximum rating. NOTE: If you install the LEDs the wrong way around, they will not light up.
  4. Which forums did you read about this problem?
  5. Flashing orange with an increase of cooling fan speed is an caused by the System Management Controller (SMC) detecting an overheating condition. However, replacement dashboards can be configured to change the eject ring color too. With UnleashX go to: System > Settings > System page scroll down until you see the LED color section. Are any of these items set to Flashing Orange?
  6. Rename the C:\Audio folder to C:\Audio_old Reboot the console, does the static sound go away?
  7. Need a video of your Xbox to hear the sound it is now making?

    XboxHDM USB

    Unless you have changed the HDDKey on the Xboxes, each one has a different value assigned. Each time you unlock a different Xbox's hard drive, you will have to copy the correct eeprom.bin file to the root directory where XboxHDM23USB is located on your PC to unlock it. You cannot use the application to easily unlock multiple Xbox hard drives unless the HDDKey stored in the configuration EEPROM of them all are changed to the same value. (NOTE: Keep a backup copy of each Xbox's original eeprom.bin file.)

    XboxHDM USB

    XboxHDM23USB Beta 2 ,3, and 4 all can only access the first 6 drives that Windows recognizes attached to the PC. Determine which physical device number Windows has assigned to your Xbox's hard drive (actually all drives attached to your PC). Start/open a cmd.exe Window. Keyin the command wmic diskdrive get model,name then press Enter to run it. Example Output Model Name SanDisk SDSSDH3 1T02 \\.\PHYSICALDRIVE0 WDC WD80EB-28CGH2 \\.\PHYSICALDRIVE1 Which \\.\PHYSICALDRIVEN is the Xbox hard drive assigned? If N > 5, you will need to disable / disconnect some of the other drives listed before it. I had a computer with a multi-device card reader that had 6 PHYSICALDRIVEs assigned to it even though they were not in use. After disabling several of those drives in Windows Device Manager, the Xbox drive was finally assigned a low enough device ID (less than or equal to 5) that XboxHDM23USB could find it.
  10. Yes, simple. Most replacement dashboards build an Applications menu by scanning for the default.xbe file in folders one-level below the C:\apps, E:\apps, F:\apps and/or G:\apps folder. (Note: This operation depends upon the replacement dashboard's menu settings found in its configuration file - evox.ini for evoxdash, config.xml for UnleashX, etc.) Xbox Softmodding Tool Default Dashboard Rocky5's Xbox Softmodding Tool has a long boot order list. The first entry found on the hard drive becomes 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 If a file is not found, the boot loader attempts to run the next entry on the list. If found, it runs; otherwise, the next down the list is attempted. Repeat... Therefore, to make an xbe file further down the list become the default dashboard, make sure that all of the files listed above it are not found - rename the folder or xbe file(s) so higher priority xbe entries are not found on the hard drive.
  11. Instead of installing XBMC-Emustation to the root folder of the C, E, or F drive where the softmod looks to load it, move the XBMC-Emustation folder to E:\Apps or F:\Apps.
  12. You may be able to create a set of images (jpgs) for each page of the PDF file and create a RAR, CBR or CBZ file that can be viewed with XBMC, XBMC4Xbox or xCbr. Check this post - https://forum.kodi.tv/showthread.php?tid=226861&pid=2003580#pid2003580
  13. Yes I believe you can. Download the source code for the dashloader, edit the list and rebuild the application. Download the Code ZIP archive from Rocky5's Xbox-Softmodding-Tool github.com repository (download link). You'll need Visual Studio 2003, etc. to be able to compile the code found in the extracted content of the ZIP in the subfolder: Xbox-Softmodding-Tool/App Sources/Shortcut xbe's/Dashloader/
  14. Which AV cable are you using? Which brand/model of TV?
  15. Rocky5's dashloader for a hardmodded console does this too. You can configure the 8 main buttons; A, B, Y, X, Back, Start, White, and Black; on the controller to a different dashboard to start when held on power on. The hard modded version of Rocky5's dashloader is provided with the unofficially patched iND-BiOS 5003 release: IND-BIOS 5003 Shutdown+Ram Patched+XBL Enabled.zip - Google Drive This patched BIOS fixes a few bugs that exist in the original 5003 release and allows Xbox Live packets to be sent for when Insignia becomes available - the homebrew Xbox Live replacement soon-to-be-released (when? when it's done...). Note: To use the dashloader, you do not have to use iND-BiOS. The dashloader is named evoxdash.xbe and replaces that file on your hard modded Xbox's C drive. (REMINDER: you do need a replacement dashboard on the hard drive at one of the locations listed below.) Most modified Xbox BIOSes check for that file, C:\evoxdash.xbe, first in their boot order list. Rocky5's dashloader has its own much longer boot order list than a modified BIOS. It is used to load the actual replacement dashboard installed on the hard drive unless you hold a button on the controller that has been configured to load a specific dashboard. The first file found in the following list becomes your 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 E:\evoxdash.xbe C:\XBMC.xbe E:\XBMC.xbe
  16. I've never seen one. wait, wait, I do recall that XBMC4Xbox can view pictures stored in a CBR or CBZ file. So, if the manuals were available in this format, maybe... See: https://www.xbmc4xbox.org.uk/wiki/Pictures#Comics I'm not sure if XBMC-Emustation retained that feature. IIRC, there was a comic book reader application too for the Xbox, or maybe it was simply using XBMC to view the file's content. Edit: Found it - xCbr_v0.1.1_xbox.zip.
  17. Purchase a Brook Wingman XB adapter or Ryze119's OGX360. If you have the technical know-how, you can build your own OGX360 from the plans and firmware available the developer's github repository - OGX360.
  18. Advantage: Faster boot time. The BIOS does not have to wait for the hard drive to become ready to load the configuration file from it. Disadvantage: If done improperly, it can brick your console. The takeaway: DON"T DO IT! Edit: You are asking about injecting the config file into the iND-BiOS, correct?
  19. The AC power connector pins soldered to the printed circuit board do look cracked - no longer able to make a good electrical connection. Reflowing them is the first step to attempt repairing the power supply unit (PSU). Do you have a multimeter to measure the voltages present on the motherboard power connector? It is a FoxLink PSU which has the problem of poor strain relief on that connector which lead to MS releasing the power cord replacement. Their solution was only a band-aid to prevent the Xbox from catching on fire, not a real fix for the problem but less costly than a recall and replacing millions of poorly designed power supplies.
  20. Buy one of the Xbox breakaway cables from eBay or Amazon sellers. Thanks for posting a photo of the PS1/PS2 to Xbox controller adapter.
  21. No, I don't need the backups after discovering which softmod package it is. Check the E drive for a Mimesis subfolder. If there is one, its content needs to be backed up.
  22. Ah ha, found the source of the info on the font + audio exploit that was posted at biline.ca. It was written by mkjones himself and posted at the now defunct forums.xbox-scene.com web site: http://web.archive.org/web/20141025205854/http://forums.xbox-scene.com/index.php?/topic/195972-what-are-the-font-and-audio-exploits/ Also, now available at forums.xboxscene.org - a web site built from a ton of archived data from the old web site: https://forums.xboxscene.org/index.php/topic,90105.msg741629.html#msg741629
  23. Okay. After a bit more digging, I found that softmod lite package: https://the-eye.eu/public/xbins/XBOX/Console Based Applications/exploits/_Packages/mkjones_packages/mkjones-softmodlite.zip Edit: I've never used it. I always installed a modchip on the consoles I modded back in the heyday of the xbox modding scene. I started installing a few of the more recent softmod packages such as SID (Softmod Installer Deluxe) [actually not released recently. It's been out for many years.] by xbox-hq.com or Rocky5's Xbox Softmodding Tool releases starting in 2016 IIRC to the present.
  24. I found a bit of info about old softmods / font exploits that change the Xbox Live tab of the stock 4920 dashboard to Phoenix. http://www.biline.ca/xbox_ude.htm: I emboldened the text that mentions the XBOX LIVE to PHOENIX tab change.
