Just being curious - i´m struggling with the "Hotplug"- MethodJust being curious - i´m struggling with the "Hotplug"- Method in combination with an rather old USB IDE Enclosure (i suppose its from the early XP Times). Things i´ve done so far: While the XBOX HDD (WD80 with 10GB) is attached to it, things get extremely worse on my W7/Linux-PC. Its shown in the Device Manager/Drives as WD80, but not via WMIC, so Tools wont´t find the HDD at all. Hdparm (here /dev/sdc) would not resume and stalls the entire System. W7/Linux won´t shut down as long the Enclose is attached, neither does the PC boot (BIOS ginves me a B4 error, means USB Hotplug error). As soon as i power off the Enclosure/remove it, things will resume. Same happens when the drive is unlocked by the XBOX and hotswapped. But every other IDE drive in the Enclosure works fine. I understand that ATA Security could probably stall that old the Microcontroller in the Enclosure (somehow a 7.5 MHz RISC Controller), but i think as soon the drive is unlocked, this shouldn´t be a problem at all. -Or- the MC somehow resets the HDD again before it tries to obtain the drive data and the HDD is falling back to the point where ATA Security gets in Place, but i think the controller might have at least the ability to read out the drive data (Brand, Name etc) . Of course the Enclosure has always power while Hotswapping. Removing the jumper on the HDD (from Cable Select to Master) doesn´t do it. I got the Key for the HDD via my logic analyzer and its I2C Protocol Analyzer (Key has to be tried out). If things get completely worse, i could try to program an MC by myself and attach the drive to it in order to unlock it via Serial Commands (and remove the lock permanently, as well lock it again). But i think thats too much work. Done a AVR IDE/FAT32-Driver more than fifteen years ago (of course sources are lost by now), but somehow i won´t fiddle around again for only one purpose. I have another Seagate Spare IDE drive with 20 GB, which i could fit in the XBOX and try it to lock via the enclosure (if it does accept the command), but idk where or where to obtain the neccessary OS-files (including Softmod and the ability to connect to the XBOX via LAN/FTP, as well as a driver, wchih allows Access to a USB-Stick attached to a mechanically modified controller port). I understand that there have to be at least two Partition, C and E, but idk which FS (xfat?) etc. Any help is greatly appreciated ! Best regards Stef
Struggling not so Noob... But could be noob.

Struggling with X3 re-install (possible dead chip?)I've spent some time kicking around the forums, but appear to be running in circles, so hoping for an assist. Last month I grounded out the power supply on my 1.1 while doing a 2TB SATA upgrade. The SATA/IDE board touched the power supply as I was re-assempling the box (I left the power live like a bozo). I purchased a new power supply to find that the board was dead (non-stop frag). Purchased a previously soft modded 1.0 box, removed and cleaned up the clock cap and was able to boot to UnleashX. I'm now in day 4 of trying to install my old, previously fully functional, X3CE onto this new board. de-soldered d0, LAN, HDD wire no problem de-soldered pin header cleaned up solder in 1.0 header Installed old header back in 1.0 Connected everything up LAN/HDD lights on X3CP work great FRAG I'm running out of ideas. So far I've tried: Booting into flasbios via eject/power: FRAG Booting to softmod using power long press: works Re-soldering the pin header thrice using a continuity tester to check each header pin against this post from livefast1989: all but pin 7 check out (i think the point may be wrong) Tried booting into softmod and flashing w/ Hexen: Mfc ID 18 / Flash not writeable Booted xblastOS from softmod: Sees X3 as the chip, wont write to it via HDD or LAN I have loads of pictures of the install and all errors. Is there something I could be missing? Could I have nuked the chip when I murdered the power supply? Is there a tool to rebuilt the factory state of the x3CE?
