So a couple months back, I found this old thread detailing one user’s attempts to use an RPi as a modchip. I’m pretty sure this is the same guy who figured out how to dump the EEPROM using a Pi as well, so major major kudos go to him for that. Here’s the original thread: http://remnantmods.com/forums/viewtopic.php?f=3&t=2384 It looks like he actually made it pretty far along before getting hung up on low polling rates on the Pi’s GPIO. There aren’t any updates after this, but it seems like reworking the pi’s Linux kernel turned out to be a somewhat daunting task and went nowhere. Would anyone here be interested in picking up this project, or possibly pointing me in the right direction of doing so? I’m nowhere near being a software developer myself but I think this would be worthwhile and would be glad to learn! Imagine the benefits - WOL, easy wifi mods, full HD media playback, LCD, SSH, VNC, so on and so on and so on. If done properly I think this could make all this abandoned silicon (X3, anyone?) we’re all so desperate for completely obsolete. Responses and assistance greatly appreciated on this matter.
I dont know if this has been put up on here before, but i came across this during my quest to fix a v1.2 xbox that wont boot. I have at some point managed to bork the hard drive during this quest Any how this webpage shows how to read an eeprom from an xbox using a Pi and a pin header normally used for mounting modchips in an xbox.. I have installed the program on my pi and got everything ready, just waiting for my header wires to arrive and then im goin to give it a go. My thinking is if i can read the xeeprom i can then use xboxhdm2.3usb to rebuild the hard drive and install a softmod. Then hopefully this bastard will boot again Heres the link .... http://icode4.coffee/?p=22
