Hi Im in the process of upgrading my ram. The mod chip im using is an x2.6 with ind-bios. I have the xblastos xbe installed on my HDD. My thinking was that I could boot to my dashboard then launch the xblastos xbe to check each ram chip. However, upon powering on the xbox, it boots three times and the led's flash red and orange. My question is do I need the xblast bios flashed to my modchip for the xbox to boot during the upgrade or have I made a mistake during the installation? Im quite confident about my soldering. Checking under x60 magnification and lots of light tia
So, I'm in the process of completing my first OGXbox build, and while I'm waiting on parts to finish this one up, I'm looking at alternative ways to approach installations of certain mods, specifically the LCD Display that can be added to the Xbox. Now, I know that there are a couple of ways to enable an LCD display to work on the Xbox, on of which is by using a Xenium-chip, and using an SPI-2-PAR to convert the display to work with the Xenium SPI bus. Now, I've been doing some window-shopping online, and I came across several LCD Displays with SPI Interfaces already on them. I'm now guessing where I'm going with this, but i'll ask anyway; given the fact that the Xenium chip uses an SPI bus to use the LCD, and the LCD display comes with an SPI Interface, would it be possible to use the display on the chip, given that I have the connector from the LCD to the chip, and that I know how to wire the LCD to the SPI bus on the chip.
I've hugely enjoyed modding the hell out of my OG xbox, going from a dusty acid-covered black OG, to a new-looking soft-modded box, then up to a SmartXX, then adding a Samsung SSD to one and a 2Tb drive to another, to playing with different BIOSes, using CoinOps Massive, adding noctua fans (had to cut some plastic but got there in the end) as well as creating an xbox slim with a custom paintjob as well. And then I got my favourite part, the translucent green X3+X3CP with a firmware-flashed PC dvd drive. It's just been a tonne of fun. The next step might be to try overclocking! So my question is really this: Can anyone think of any more ordinary "day to day"-type uses for a modded-to-hell OG xbox? I've used it for original games, emulators, playing music - but what about XLINK Kai integration, or youtube support? The OG xbox is *so close* to being genuinely useful as a reasonably modern media consumption device, overclocking especially might push it over the line to being able to play 720p/1080p media smoothly. And YouTube, i'd absolutely love to be able to watch youtube on it, all i've found so far are a few broken old scripts in a copy of MC 360 that don't seem to work. So all the jibber jabber aside, anyone think of any more fun daily-driver type uses for a modded og xbox?
