About Me

  1. Hey guys, new member...but not new to the scene. I have been a member over at XBMC4XBOX for years. I initially modded this box in 2010/2011-ish. I had run XBMC on it for my daughter for a number of years, with the help of the fine folks over at X4X, have updated it several times...added some SNES ROMS and had quite a bit of fun messing around with it and the scene. As it got to be a little longer in the tooth for HD streaming, and several devices that are smaller and much more powerful that can do much more, I packed it away. My son is now 15, and loves all things gaming. I would like to get this back up and running with more ROMS that he and his friends can enjoy. Several months ago, I updated the dash with Rocky5 1.17 disc, but could never get anything to boot off of it. I only got Rocky5's gray dash, and the downloader working. XBMC would boot to a red error screen, and XBMC Emustation/XBMC4Gamers would not do anything...no matter how much I tried. I posted over at XBMC4XBOX several times to get some help, but really received no answers. In the last few weeks I have found this site, and have been reading as much as I can. I got the box out today, and had forgotten that in a fit of desperation, I tried HEXEN 2018 to try to wipe the mod and start over. It still had UnleashX as the main dash, and booted right up to it. XBMC 3.5 was still in the E: folder, but still booted to the red printed error screen. When I tried to switch to it as a dashboard I couldn't get UnleashX back. I put HEXEN back in and ran through some tools and kept getting more errors. Just dug Rocky5 out again, and ran through the softmod updater. It is a stock (other than the softmod) 1.4 that I believe was warranty repaired by Microsoft at one time. I purchased it from a friend at work, and it had previously been opened up, but no mods had been done. Booted fine to stock dash with all his game saves. I had done the original mod with the Replay card and 007 with Krayzie's, I believe. It worked great, and I was constantly reading and messing with updates and dashboard appearance for it when it was in my daughter's room. I would really like to clean this thing up. Rocky5 is now updated, and I installed the XBMC4Gamers, and booted to the dash...it worked! Now that I am a little more encouraged, I want to get this as clean as possible before adding ROMS, etc... I feel all of my attempts have left junk behind, and I want it gone...Is there a utility or anything that will get my softmod to a point that it has only what it needs to run? Then I can begin again. Like a "fresh install" or "refresh"? I have old XBMC builds, and who knows what else cluttering up the disk. Or possibly a folder structure diagram that I can follow, and clean up manually? I had incorrectly assumed that the softmod updater or HEXEN would wipe everything for me, but that was not the case. I've poured through both discs and have not seen anything like this in any menus. Thanks in advance...love the site Kevin
  2. I chip modded my Xbox 20 years ago when I was in college. Not sure the type of chip but I can find out if need be. Evolution X executor rox my box load screen. Fast forward and now I have 4 kids who have resurrected the Xbox, ages 4-11. I suspect one of the kids messed up the bios but I really don't know. One day, the kids can't get into system utilities anymore and load games. Here is the screen it boots to. Not sure where to go from here to get the machine working but I can follow directions and my 11YO is as nerdy as I used to be, so I'm hoping all is not lost. Any guidance appreciated.
  3. So, I'm an old man and I can't remember how I flashed this XBox years ago. I have an Aladdin XT Plus2 with Evox +3935 and M8plus_16 fan 40.06 (not sure what size bios that is). I wrote a 2TB image to a drive and get an error telling me to upgrade to LBA48 ver 2. Can someone point me in the right direction. I do have FTP access to the box.
  4. Not sure if I'm allowed to post a link to Google Drive but I lucked into an X3 xbox for £16 and it came rammed with skins and old BIOSes, some of which I recognise and many I don't. Perhaps someone would like them for archival purposes? Please let me know
  5. Hi! I was looking for unnecessary files on my xbox hardrive when i saw this: I realised that i have dashboard that i don't need. I opened it and saw that it even wasn't EvoX, but UnleashX (idk why). I already have UnleashX, but in different directory (C:/Dashboard). I need help which files to remove that are part of the unnecessary dash (I wanna keep the folders: Alt Dashboard, Applications, Backups, CACHE, MP3, PICS, TDATA, Trainers, UDATA and Video). Thank you!
  6. Hello, Whenever I get interested in a new subject, I always do a deep dive to find all sorts of information on it, and the Xbox is no different. Well while searching for a datasheet of the Xbox mcpx chip, I stumbled upon a bunch of files. Some are seemingly random, while other have to do with Avalaunch development, or pictures and files of xbox hardware. I don't know if much of the files or pictures are particularly helpful, but I find them interesting if nothing else. Here is the website in question: http://www.crusaders.no/~joker/old_web/ Maybe someone can figure out what's relevant for this community and combine it all together. DobaMuffin
  7. So after 19 years I pulled my v1.0 out blew the dust off of it. Turned it on things were not ok. Long story short clock cap pulled, damaged traces fixed. Fired it up and the Xenium logo comes up , some text in upper left that can’t be read lol then it just sits there and does nothing. Chip led is lit up red, used to be orange. Reset solderless pin mount and double checked D0 everything looks good....but again still stuck at boot up. Could use some input. Thanks in advance for patience as I’m sure this has come up before ..I couldn’t find it.

  9. Hi all. The OG Xbox holds a special place in my heart as it was the first console I purchased myself. Sadly, the HDD failed when I started high school. I sold all my games but I couldn’t throw the box away. I’m overjoyed to learn of the modding scene and that it’s possible to resurrect my girl from the dead. I’ve got an OpenXenium chip headed my way. Any suggestions for new HDDs and IDE adaptors would be greatly appreciated (along with any other advice). I’ll get the clock capacitor removed ASAP.
  10. New to the site and finally getting around to finishing(?) a pair of xecuter modded Xboxes about ten years after I started. Oops...?
  11. Recently found an xbox in my mother in law's basement and getting back into modding it as a hobby. Nice to be a part of the site.
  12. Greetings all, been into Xbox for a long time but only just getting back into it after a bit of a hiatus. Love modding them and doing case mods.
  13. Hi, so I decided to update my softmod using Rocky5 softmod update v1.1.7 all good apart from I'm only getting 45Gb on drive F and no drive G it's a v1. 2 xbox with a 150Gb hard drive with Null Eprom. What's the best plan off attack, can I just use xbpartitioner and format F and create a partition G. I don't mind loosing what's on the HD. I have all the installer disks, any ideas please guys I would really appreciate your advice.
  14. Had some fun modding an old Xbox this winter. Forgot how much fun they are.
  15. Hi all! I think I'm in the right place. First bought this awesome console back in May 2002 as a gift to myself for finishing college (4 years late but I finished!) Became a big video game fan on and off ever since. Having this in 02 made me buy a PS2 as a birthday gift that summer. I'm a Sony and MS game console guy. Just recently picked up my OG Xbox from ebay and now I watched some videos to take it apart. I got a 1.6 and wanted to check how its guts look. I want to post pics to get opinions or a diagnosis from you experst if I should go any further with taking it apart. It's playing fine and hooked up to my 1080p Vizio via HDMI. Hope to talk to some of you and get some direction where to post my pics. Thanks!
  16. Hi all. I used to have a modded box like 10 years ago. Just recently picked up another one and am scrambling for faq's and how-to's to relearn. Been digging through the forums for a day now. Does anybody have a "for dummies" writeup to give me a refresher course on the different chips and options, and(more specifically) how to get things set up and working after the chip install as far as bios and dashboards etc?
  17. hey to all, i used to mess around xbox some many years ago and now a friend brought me a v1.1 to fix and old memories came. looking fw to remember the old and discover the newest options for xbox
  18. Hope all are well, Appreciate finding this forum as i recently found my V1.0 original Xbox and have quickly descended into a rabbit hole. I will be here for a while, just got 3 more OGs from coworkers. What a project! Thanks to the mods for setting this up!
  19. Hey everyone, I recently rediscovered my old Xbox(es) and seem to have ended up here, somehow. My Xboxes consist of a working v1.4 and a broken v1.2. I've been restoring the v1.4 to it's former glory (and beyond). What amazes me is that so much has happened since I archived these boxes, it's amazing seeing the community still alive and kickin'! And who knew the clock capacitor would turn out to have leaky gut? Wish I had known it sooner. It's a shame I didn't keep a journal on my Xbox work in the past, would be interesting to reflect what I did to them. But the traces on the motherboards and cases at least tell a story. A bit of backstory. My first Xbox was the v1.2 and after probably screwing up some softmods and the like, got an Aladdin modchip for it. Not long after I was primarily running Linux on it and even did a RAM upgrade. This is also how I got into Gentoo (thanks ShALLaX!). I don't remember why but I ended up removing the extra RAM. Didn't have a hot air station back then so I did it one leg at a time. I also recall trying to put the Xbox in a computer case and shocking myself on the exposed, powered on, PSU . At some point the v1.2, probably due to some stoopid, broke down (powers on by itself and gives no image). As a result I got myself a v1.4 and a SmartXX LT OPX modchip with the solder-less adapter. In the case modding department I seem to have been quite the vandal... young me equipped with an 'el cheapo dremel. What could go wrong? From the looks of big hole on the back of the v1.2 case, I had probably planned or tried to do some AV mod or some such, top part looks like I had tried to fit a side-fan, etc. My other case is pretty neat though, I've made a hole in the top, under the logo with proper machinery (hooray for school) and sanded the green to create a transparent jewel. The only slightly annoying part is that I seem to have done some dremel damage on the back (outside), behind the fan . Probably trying to fit some sort of switch. Anyway, fast-forward to today, and here's what I've done so far: De-dusted everything with compressed air Remove clock capacitor and clean up properly Replace thermal paste with Arctic MX 4 for both CPU and GPU Replaced hacky 80mm fan mod (with LEDs) and cannibalized HDD tray with stock fan (temporary) and a pristine tray Replaced old Maxtor 120GB with a random 2TB Seagate SATA drive from my shelve of stuffs (went with Startech adapter) Replaced stock IDE cable with 80-wire IDE cable (detached and moved the DVD connector) Opened up and cleaned the Samsung DVD drive, applied some lubricant (it still occasionally "sticks" when trying to close and needs a nudge) Upgraded the SmartXX firmware from 3406 to 3408 (the last one they released, albeit a "beta") Switched to iND-BiOS 5003.67 (no clue what I used before, probably a modified EvoX, the boot sequence was just pure black ) Tried out XBMC4Gamers (pretty cool) What I'm still looking to do: Create and 3D print a fan mount for a 60mm fan (more readily available than 70mm) SSD disk (eventually, mainly for durability and noise reduction) Controller port LEDs Wireless controller, either home made wireless mod for original Xbox controller (S) or use og360 Remote power on / off (preferably via wireless controller) Find a pristine bottom case for the Xbox Salvage RAM from v1.2 board and upgrade to 128MB (again, hello 15 years ago) Illuminate my transparent Xbox jewel with LEDs (maybe) Dare I say, OGXboxHDMI!! My Xbox is alive and kickin', happy to be here and let's keep the Xbox awesome!
  20. Hi all, when moving house I found my old pride and joy modded xbox. Big hdd, xecuter 3 chip and lcd screen. I fired it up and after blowing of the cobwebs it still looks great.

  22. Hi there! My xbox was modded when I was still a kid and has been resting in peace since around 2010. Now that I've been doing a lot more technical stuff I want to dive back in and found this forum through reddit. I love that you have all this stuff gathered here as I wouldn't know where to begin if it weren't for you. Kind regards, Tadsz Edit: I was looking to grab some downloads but it says I'm not permitted. Are there some rules to this? Where can I find these?
  23. Hi - I recently updated my hard drive using HDM v 1.9 and it is now ready to mod - I have two options 1. Since I have all the files from back in the day to use Splinter Cell the SID I could mod it easily then I can use put Rocky 5 over it using the Rocky 5 disk. OR 2. Go to the trouble of setting up Rocky 5 Memory card mod -using a flash drive and Splinter Cell - have all the leads from back in the day and recently downloaded all the files and software needed. My question is does it matter if I choose the lazy option (number 1 above) or since I'm starting afresh with a new drive should I take the Option 2 route? Thanks in advance
  24. Hi, So I have an old mod chipped Xbox. I threw in a 500 gb drive and have it setup, but the build is old and crappy. lol How would I go about updating the build? I've softmodded a bunch of systems with the JRocky 5 softmod but the TSOP/ Chipped systems I'm just learning now. The dashboard setup that hexen 2018 did I really dont like, I much prefer the JCRocky5 dashboard setup with emulators and games etc. showing on the first screen. Is there any way to set it up like this? Like I said I'm a noob with the modchip setups. Any help would be appreciated, Thanks Guys.
