  1. Hello Everyone. I am kind of new/kind of old to the scene, as I have an rev 1.6 Xbox that I bought brand new in 2006, softmodded and installed a 160gb harddrive, which is(was?) limited to 137Gb useable space, copied all my bought games to it, threw in a couple emulators, and then just used it on and off and basically forgot anything involved in the process to the mists of time. Recently it wouldn't power on, so I replaced the common 5 3300uF caps that were leaking, and it was good to go. My brain noted that the 16 year old IDE hard drive will not run forever, and I should look at upgrading to a SATA configuration. Due to the time gap, very old versions of software, I have now read so much conflicting information at this point am not sure what to do in 2021. I no longer have the original drive. I don't appear to have an image of either drive (8gb or 160gb) in any of my backups either. My fuzzy memory says this is bad because of linked keys. I do not have a PATA usb adaptor, or computer with PATA. I have an Xbox to USB adaptor, but I don't think I have a compatible thumb drive. Based on my research I've ordered the "correct" Startech SATA/PATA adaptor. The existing drive already has an 80 pin cable. I do have ftp access without issue. I'm attaching a 2 screenshots of my drive/system info, my questions are: Is that key in the screenshot all I need? If not what is the best way to go about backing up the drive/board key "Just in case" things go bad. And is Chimp (https://www.reddit.com/r/originalxbox/wiki/chimp/) still the best way to clone it to a new drive in 2021? I undoubtedly will have more questions, but backing up is my first priority, and once I have a confirmed backup I will be much more comfortable playing with it, and hopefully updating the various software I have loaded. Any "critical hints" or gotchas would be appreciated as well. v
  2. I dug my old xbox out of the loft at the weekend and am trying to get it up and running again after a 15 year break! Back in the day I installed an Xecuter chip but this didn't seem to want to work so I binned it and have installed an Aladdin XT Plus2. Box boots up fine but when I try and play some old games they generally run the intros fine, but when they try to go into the actual gameplay it throws up a 'There is a problem - the disc maybe dirty or damaged' message. I'm assuming either the DVD is on the way out or the discs have degraded over time and are no longer playable so want to install a new HDD and ru the games from that. Do have a few questions though..... It's a 1.4 version, boots to a Homer Simpson dashboard and has Evox +3935 in the top left corner Guessing I'll need to flash it with a newer bios to install a larger HDD, is there a step by step guide on how to do this anywhere (I've downloaded a M8+ 67 No DVD bin) SATA drives are much easier to source, do I just need an IDE\SATA adapter and an 40 pin 80 ribbon cable to get this to work (will probably only be 500gb) Not worried about keeping anything off the original drive, so do I just swap the drives over and then use something like Hexen (I've downloaded 2020 version) to format\setup the drive Cheers
  3. After 15 years ive pulled my xbox out the box. Still running clean. Its a 1.6 running xecuter 3. Clock keeps resetting and wont store in memory which i (let me no if there is a fix for it) Hard drive has been upgraded to a 320gb ide hd but i might swap it for a 1tb
  4. Hello everybody. I'm currently getting back into the Xbox OG modding scene after a long break. . . I currently have two modded Xbox's with different chips fitted, currently trying to ID what chips are currently fitted?? One of the Xbox's has a large hard drive fitted, and the other is standard, any recommendations on what hard-drive to go for.? Best regards Josh
  5. New to the site and finally getting around to finishing(?) a pair of xecuter modded Xboxes about ten years after I started. Oops...?
  6. It has been a long time since I softmodded my ogxbox halo special edition. Used to softmod for friends and possibly 20 xboxes passed by my house for softmodding. Looking for what's new in softmodding because I want to finally put a bigger hard drive.
  7. just did my first ever hard mod and excited to see the community still going!
  8. Hi, I've had a couple of modded Xboxes for more than 10 years (maybe 15???). Recently heard about the clock capacitor issue so I opened up my xbox and saw the scene is still going on. I'm thinking now about upgrading to a larger HDD via IDE/SATA adapter. Do I need to worry about what BIOS or hardware I have to take full advantage of it? I'm running X2 4976.02 BIOS, and I guess the easiest thing is to take Hexen 2018 and flash it to a newer BIOS? any recommendations? I don't even remember if I have to worry about 512kb vs 1mb bios, and what that means (could I brick the Xbox?) Any tips?
  9. My younger brother gave me his Xbox in 03-04 because you had to slap it just right to get the drive to open. I took it apart to try and repair it without success. It's a little unique since the problem is a little piece that guides the drive snapped off. So when the motor first pulls the tray, it tugs unevenly and needs a little push. This lead me to modchipping it so I could copy a couple games onto the HDD (Fable, mainly). I also put a couple early emulators on, and when XBMC first came out I found it pretty interesting. A rekindled interest in Emulation has brought me back to the Xbox. I'm currently attempting to upgrade to a 2tb HDD and adding two more RAM chips.
