About Me

  1. its nice to see the community is still active i was a little worried considering these consels are 20+ years old and i almost lost everything software and hardware in a house fire which is why im here software is not a problem thank god for xbins but rather hardware i need to find some rare parts mostly i was a softmod guy i softmodded countless xboxs and always wanted a mod chip i always found them out of stock or in another country and never could find one then one day i was on facebook marketplace and there it was in my neck of the woods it was a version 1.4 with xecuter 3 ce with the face plate lcd screen / switches and usb ports for a steal of a price 200$ so i bought it no questions asked shut up and take my money its the holy grail of xboxs we all know well remember i said i almost lost everything in a house fire the fire happened two years ago and at that time i slimmed down my xboxs and only had two of them one just a softmod the other the xecuter 3 now let me tell you these xboxs were directly under my 55in flat screen tv and the tv melted all down on the xboxs now im here to tell you that Microsoft built a tank when they built these things because softmod survived i mean the case is junk both power and eject buttons were melted together i had to break the case apart and pull the power/eject pcb board out to turn it on now i have not cleaned the mother board or anything and it functions so i have hope i have not hooked up x3 to see whats up its the holy grail instead i have it pulled apart and trying to clean the mother board and mod chip and try to get it up and going again the switches are really bad one of the switches got so hot that some of the buttons fell off one switch came apart a spring came out but the switch might still work if you act like there is a spring there it will cycle but they are all melted in some way ie the switches now about the lcd screen i have it all pulled apart i might be able to salvage it it had some sort of tint on the out side of the glass witch is easy i just have to find out about what % tint it was but on the other side of the glass screen for illumination there is a white semi transparent film for even and soft illumination and now mine is is wavy like a pice of bacon and that will effect the screens back light illumination so if i can figure out the tint % and a good replacement for the backlight diffuser i think its what it is lol and to replace these switches https://imgbox.com/g/Pl9bJWtgsZ
  2. Hello all! I use to be really into the mods back in the days. I shared a lot of hardware info and came up with a easy to build Eprom reader to get the Hdd KEYS out of the bios chip storage. I recently pulled out 4 Xboxes that I had squirreled away for future projects, I saw this on a YouTube video and thought, wow people are still into modding the old Xbox! Good to meet all of you!
  3. Hi. I was having a clear out and found my old console that I modded around 20years ago. I thought, "You know what, it'd be fun to have another play with it". Just found OGXbox while searching around, so will probably be back for advice since I've forgotten almost everything I knew back then . I did find that I should remove the clock capacitor before powering on, so I'm going to do that first. Hope it's not leaked much. See you all later.
  4. Tried paying the 5$ to avoid this but of well. Paypal doesn't work for me as payment. Oh well. So hello!
  5. Hello. I am Vitor, from Brazil and joined here some days ago. Nice to be here. Cheers.
  6. Just joined. I modded my first xbox around 2004, I'm fairly sure it was an xecutor or an xecutor clone. It fell into disuse for years when TVs stopped actually having any input sockets, but recently I got hold of a Pound HDlink and resurrected it, although it has developed a fault that I'll research on here later. Meantime I was given my nephews old v 1.0 xbox that seems to have a dead hard drive, I'll have a go at resurrecting it with an Aladdin. Thanks for letting me in, I'm sure I will have the odd question or two later.
  7. Hi everyone, I fell in love with the Xbox the moment I unwrapped it Christmas morning in 2003. Its been almost 20 years now and I've got the itch to go back and play some of the old favorites. I currently have a mystery 20$ Ebay special sitting on my table. I can't wait to crack into it and discover what is wrong with it. I'm sure I'll have many questions and appreciate any advice you all have.
  8. Hello there, I'm Jenko, I go by J3nk0J1 on XBL and other platforms. I recently got my hands on a v1.4 Original Xbox and dove right back into modding. My first experience modding was a original xbox as a teenager, nothing like a hotswap. Looking forward to contributing to discussions and sharing where I can.
  9. Hi, I just wanted to present myself. I currently have 5 OGXBOX, 1 which is DEAD (broken motherboard), 1 softmodded, 1 chipped, and 2 TSOPed. Currently trying to standarize all my Xboxes so its easier for me to swap, recover, and install stuff. Thanks for the forum, I'll post some questions later.
  10. Hello, new member on this forum for a day, Xbox original French Fan for a long time, i'm was looking for help try to resurect one of my xbox, and thanks to this forum i did it, reading a lot of ya Thread help me to win my 3 days battle against that console. thanks to all the members . i've subscribe right after, because you are a source of treasure for this console now it's time to feed the beast . cheers all
  11. Picked up a fairly nice, 1.0 or 1.1 xbox off ebay. Took out clock capacitor, upgraded to 1TB HDD. Honestly really considering hard modding so I can unlock the HDD and put it onto USB for transfer, the FTP is painfully slow with all the many small files from game transfers.
  12. Realized a while ago the Xbox is x86 based and figured it would be interesting to reveres engineer it and learn about how the hardware works. I'm looking at creating my own entry point from scratch, whenever I find a console for a reasonable price. I also used to be able to micro solder almost a decade ago, dunno if my hands are still as good. So I could technically write code for what people call a mod chip, if I found a board diagram mostly that would be a key point in prospering as that's going to be hell if I have to document all of the board on my own lol!!!!!! On my bucket list is: * My own entry point * Full optimization of the chipsets. Cpu, Gpu etc * Looking at a potential bare minimum linux build to handle wine mostly to be able to program in linux or windows at that point. That's really about it. I'll probably end up sandboxing xbox software from existence practically, if the hdd is installed I would assume if that works. I'm hoping to inspect the hard drive file system and how the system handles reading the drive and see if I can create a entry point there instead. Initiate everything on run time to take over the console. Probably create a backup of the disc image for upload. I won't know until I get my hands on a console. But attacking how the hdd gets handled might help unlock the whole hdd locked ordeal I've been told of. As for linux and wine I'm hoping depending on how I have to write this someone will fork my work, I plan to export everything to the point a scripting language could register my cpu function optimizations and what not. Handle it a easy way or something. Should be a mater of someone grabbing the disk image and start programming in something much easier like C or something. I have a lot to learn I'm sure!!
  13. Hello at all guy. I am from italy.I have 3 xbox classic and like videogame general. Thanks
  14. Hi I found this forum by accident but it seems fairly active which is cool. This is the first og Xbox related site I found. I like to chip Xboxes occasionally and sell them. Don't know if that's of interest here. I also look forward to just chatting in general with people here on the forum.
  15. hi im from france and i have an og xbox 1.4 fully recaped with the xboxhd+ and the openxenium chip and 2tb hdd installed. i just want to pick some news here and others goods see you
  16. Just started to collect these consoles have a few some with mods some og looking forward to chats and reading up on fixes and how to's
  17. Hi everyone I am an Italian and I am a fan of mods and consoles
  18. Hi all, New member from the Netherlands. Recently booted up my modded 1.6 XBOX after more then a decade of it catching dust in the attic. Only problem I encountered was a stuck DVD drive which just needed a bit of persuasion to get working again (would not open or close). Surprisingly all my burned discs still worked after, burned them 16 years ago. My plan is to bring the xbox into the new decade with a new SSD, Fan and OGX360. For the first 2 the parts are already ordered and I plan to upgrade it this weekend. I'm still looking for a OGX360 so any tips are welcome. Coldasijs
  19. I build a retrogaming setup, and I’m going to add the first Xbox. So, I have some questions about this console
  20. Hi, my name's Dean and I'm from the UK. The OG xbox was the first console I ever owned (second if you count my gameboy) but it stopped working over recent years. I'm more a mechanical guy by nature so I'm pretty green when it comes to this stuff, but hey what better way to learn than to try fixing my first console. Even more so now I've learned how awesome they can be modded. Anyway people here seem pretty cool, doubt I'll have much to offer to start with but I'll help out where I can.
  21. My name is Sam. I am from the UK. .... Okay, perhaps I shouldn't be so straight-to-the-point. I am someone who tinkers with old electronics. Over the last few years I've been teaching myself to solder by getting hold of cheap playstations and chipping them, from the oldest to the newest. Reason being, the solder points get tinier and more difficult to do as technology progresses. Around 2011 I got into Xbox modifications, and have seen good websites come and go with a wealth of information come and go (sad face). I am glad to see this website emerge from the dust to continue the trend. Now, onto my collection: I have a number of Xboxes. Most of them are broken, some of them work. Mainly because I have attempted RAM upgrades and failed. I also own a Trusty 1.4GHZ box (and had to go to quite a lot of trouble to get the thing to cool sufficiently to get any stable activity out of it!) I purchased this three years ago via Trusty on XBMC4XBOX's forum. More recently I have acquired an N64Freak 1.0GHZ box via this forum. I've got to say, the quality of the work is vastly different on both, though both now get fairly equal usage due to the fact some games are more stable on the 1.0GHZ than the 1.4GHZ (even with patching). I have as of late come across several downloads I'd like to get hold of on this forum, but cannot get them because I need to have at least 3 forum posts. Hmm, I wonder why that is. It does make me a little peeved that some sites force you to make an account just to download files, and then wonder why they have lots of inactive accounts with no posts, then delete them en masse, possibly because they look so similar to spammy accounts. But this... is a whole new level. I have no intention of spamming, so I guess this policy is having a (probably desirable) effect of forcing me to actually make good quality posts in order to be allowed the privilege of downloading. Possibly to ensure people actually contribute to the community in order to benefit from it. Okay, I can see that being a good reason. So here we are, my introduction. I will follow up this post with some photographs I have taken from the inside of my two souped up Xboxes.
  22. Just recently got an original Xbox and have been soft modding it. Wanted to try out the original xbox since there are many classics on the system like Conker Live and Reloaded and I feel its best to experience them on original hardware.
  23. Been messing around with the Xbox for a couple years now. I enjoy seeing what people have done and what they come up with. Plus it is nice to have a place to get advice and help!
  24. after a very very long absence from the xbox i would like to bring it back to life and hope to find some support and news here about how things are going in the xbox scene right now. Marco
  25. Hi all, I joined because I have a 1.0 build I did back in the day (2004), obviously things have changed a lot since then. I have the solderless xecutor 2.3b lite where you screw it onto the board headers and everything still works great. I did remove my clock cap before it could wreck anything. I've upgraded my fan to a noctua. I do have the later heat sinks in hand, but I will probably defer installation until I do a full recap and my HDMI mod from MakeMHZ. I have a 200 GB ide drive in there now, running avalaunch dashboard. I do like that dashboard but I'm guessing that is very out of date. I've done a few updates here and there, and I added some better emulators but I'm still mostly running the same old stuff I did back then. After adding xb partitioner 1.3 and starting it up to see what it looks like, I found that I need to upgrade my bios to allow me to go with the 2 TB drive I bought and the venerable StarTech SATA adapter I have. I'm downloading TruHeXen 2020 right now from archive so maybe that will have a new bios that will let me use the 2TB. The last time I set one of these up might have been around 2007 with an evox disc I probably got off usenet back then. I still have that disc but I'm sure it isn't going to get me where I want to be with regard to upgrading to a 2TB drive. Anyway, I will be searching the forums before simply asking someone to tell me things that have been answered tons of times. Just thought I would introduce myself. Thanks!
