  1. So today I got my composite with toslink cable and hooked it up to the TV . My dashboard works fine but when I insert a xbox game the screen is jumbled badly. Is there something I can do here ? Im assuming the cable is fine . It shows up as HD A V pack . I only had the standard A V pack before and am looking forward to seeing an improvement. Hardmod 1.6 Thanks Ryan

  4. Hello everyone! I want to perform RAM upgrade on my Xbox but I don't know which RAM I should buy. Here is the picture of the RAM from my Xbox: SAMSUNG K4D263238F-QC50 So my question is which RAM should I buy? I found a couple of RAM chips on ebay and AliExpress but I don't know are they going to work on my Xbox. Here is the list: https://www.aliexpress.com/item/32890729020.html?spm=a2g0s.8937460.0.0.7efb2e0eCU8Qyr https://www.ebay.com/itm/BRAND-NEW-Samsung-K4D263238M-QC50-128M-DDR-SDRAM-1PCS-NEW/123866715285 And, thanks in advance!
  5. These past few weeks have been a real voyage of rediscovery as I hadn't softmodded an xbox in years and the scene has changed so much - Rocky 5 was completely new to me. I was wondering how to go about installing XBMC on startup - which version is the best etc... Sorry for sounding like such a noob but this is all new to me again. I have coin ops, games and emulators like the Megadrive and Snes already installed. Any help greatly appreciated.
  6. Hello everybody, I've been reading the forums for a few months, and I have to request something that is very dearly to me. It comes after the small intro. I have a previously modded Xbox OG, but I failed I reckon and it only boots the official bios now. I want to thank my dad for showing what gaming was back in 1994, and purchasing me a Dreamcast in 1999 and the Xbox in 2002...Nostalgia Highway to Memories Camp... So : The Year is 2020, and now I want to have a definitive ultimate version/edition of my Xbox that've kept for almost two decades. I've seen CPU, RAM, DVD reader and belt, capacitors, IDE/SATA cables replacements or upgrades, the HDMI mod and the GPU overclock. This all made me have fantaisies, I am too little knowledgeable about the electronics modding and skills. Basically I am searching for someone that can mod my Xbox and upgrade the specs. I am living in the area next to the Border between Switzerland and southern Germany. I don't know what are the exact component bust my requirements is to be able to at least play games with patched .xbe for the DLCs(that I purchased back then, looking at PGR2 and SWBF2)(I still have all physical games with me) and 720p patches as well as some N64, PS1 and Dreamcast emulators with HDMI output (I have the Scart Advanced Pack & HD AV Pack imported from US). I have two Xboxes. One is a v1.1, the other 1.6. Both have a 500Gb HDD. Everything can be cleared and wiped. Softmod must be anyway. The purpose for my Xbox is to be the Leisure Room console with couch/cabinet setup. It hasn't a commercial purpose. A typical scenario is : I want to show my friends old gems and just play from time to time with my brother who shared the experiences with me (I am the elder brother). So it has a purely gaming use of OG Xbox games and Retroarch emulator. As well as maintaining tools for archiving and updating I am confused, it's true, about modchips having only used softmods. A Modchip is a hardmod right ? Which Modchip is the most developer or last updated? I am thinking about the Xecuter 3 and X-Chip ones after looking through the 4th Gen comparison chart in the forum here. I always wondered why people would use many launchers and different OS, with different features like remote media or other networking services? I don't want to have too much things. It must be pretty straight forward for gaming : clear, quick and clean. I hope N64 Freak (even when he/you said a month ago you're not actively offering them for long anymore), Neighbor or some one knowledgeable reads this Thank you for reading, and I'm glad to have happy times in the forums !
  7. Doing 128mb RAM upgrades for $50,, pm me if interested
  8. og xbox 1.4ghz and ram upgrade anyone have one for sale let me know will pay good money for one
  9. Hi! I have a topic to start. I'm already happy with my og Xbox upgraded with another 64mb of ram, but I would love to have it modded with 1.4 Ghz Tualatin. My console inside is 1.0 revision motherboard and was manufactured in Hungary, it is also modded with dual tsop and xblast. Do you know if somebody is still doing that upgrade? I've already PM'd to N64 freak but I'am waiting for his reply, so meanwhile when I am waiting for that reply I decided to find out if there is someone else for that job besides of that, I've read that he is only doing 1 Ghz, not 1.4 Ghz anymore - but I already have two proper tualatins so maybe I'll convince him. The only other person I know that was doing this is Trusty but I don't know where could I contact him. My soldering skills are very little, that is why I'm looking for somebody.
  10. Hello OGXbox members. I recently found out that N64Freak no longer does the 1ghz mod, fair enough as the CPU is pretty hard to find on eBay HOWEVER!, I have found a 900mhz Mobile P3 CPU, it is the same socket as the Original Xbox uses Socket 495 BGA. This brings in the question if it is possible to do a CPU upgrade using this CPU as you can overclock on the Original Xbox and it can probably hit 1ghz. https://www.ebay.com.au/itm/Intel-Mobile-Pentium-III-SL59H-KC80526GY900256-900-Mhz-CPU/202303683276?_trkparms=aid%3D111001%26algo%3DREC.SEED%26ao%3D1%26asc%3D20160908105057%26meid%3D87f57bf1cc2a473697985d15daba2c95%26pid%3D100675%26rk%3D4%26rkt%3D15%26sd%3D283605646634%26itm%3D202303683276%26pmt%3D0%26noa%3D1%26pg%3D2481888&_trksid=p2481888.c100675.m4236&_trkparms=pageci%3Aa1b681a6-db80-11e9-9263-74dbd180a9b6|parentrq%3A4dc979f116d0abc5a1275cceff9ade14|iid%3A1 By the pictures, it seems to be easy enough but should only be attempted by a professional, desolder the old CPU and heatgun the new one on.
  11. I`ve X 1.6 Hardmoded with Aladdin Advance 64 BIOS checker say: evox.m8pus.bin stock>1tb(sata) I try HEXEN method but after swapping HDD HEXEN block in "xbox linux" boot screen (red LED) I don`t know adapter non compatible or BIOS (hexen disc work) XBpartitioner 1,1 show this error:(photo) What to do?

  13. Selling a tsop'd v1.2 mobo w/ ind-5004 bios & 128mb RAM upgrade... $80
  14. Hello, ive just done HDD upgrade using this tutorial and xbox only see 120gb out of 500gb from my new hdd, what is wrong? funny enough HeXEn shows me the proper status of 450gb+ free space on F drive, the same with Xpartitioner (but only when im using this app from HeXEn disc). When im entering Xpartitioner on dashboard then i got Warning ... "!!!! WARNING !!!!! LB448 info not found! Custom Partitions will not work with this BIOS! Update your BIOS to one which supports at least LBA48 version 2. Press Y to continue or any other button to abort." There you have system info ...

  17. og xbox 1.4ghz and ram upgrade anyone have one for sale will pay asap let me know ok thanks
  18. How? (more specifically, where to get one?)
  19. 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
  20. I have to start by saying thank you in particular to Floydzabarber as I must have watched his video about the RAM upgrade a dozen times. Well, I ordered some chips a couple weeks ago and I gave the RAM upgrade a try tonight. I performed the "surgery" on a rev 1.1 board and all the pads were nicely tinned, which was a bonus. Here are my tools of the trade which made this upgrade a breeze: Hakko FX888D-29BY Digital Soldering Station T18-D16 Soldering Iron Tip (bevelled, which originally came with my Hakko soldering station) Kester 24-6337-8806 245 No-Clean Flux Core Solder, 63/37 .015" MG Chemicals 836-P No Clean Flux Pen JARLINK 30X 60X Illuminated Jewelers Eye Loupe Magnifier 99.9% Isopropyl Alcohol Liquid Cleaner (used with cotton swabs) To start, I highly recommend that you stay FAR, FAR away from a hot air / rework station for this project unless you have wicked, magical skills with soldering. Even then, I'm sure it would be way slower to use a hot air / rework station as compared to a proper soldering iron. Prior to jumping into the soldering phase, I installed a modchip with the 256kb crcwell.bin BIOS. That is the XBlast OS which will boot and test the RAM. You definitely need to test that your Xbox is booting into this BIOS before commencing the RAM upgrade. The tip of the soldering iron, for me, is a multipurpose tool. The tip that I identified above was the perfect size (for me) and it had a small bevel that I used as a gauge for how much solder to apply. I would apply a little less solder for the short sides as compared to the longer sides and that same tip was the perfect tool for removing solder from bridged pins. (Do yourself a favour and at least go get a small bevelled tip for whatever soldering iron you are using.) To prep the board, I cleaned the tinned pads with a cotton swab and the Isopropyl Alcohol. (I think if I were doing the mod on a board that didn't have tinned pads, I'd probably tin them first.) I then used a flux pen to wet the pads liberally. I placed the chip in the proper orientation (as the chip next to it) and then I verified that it was nicely aligned by using my eye loupe while keeping it from moving with a soft press of my finger. (Okay, I'm getting old and my sight isn't what it used to be. LOL!) As I held the chip in place, my other hand prepped the soldering iron (set on 750 deg f) to ensure that it looked nice and shiny. (If your tip isn't prepared correctly you will have a problem.) I then put a tiny amount of solder on the tip of the soldering iron and dragged it fairly quickly across the pins on one side. (It is important to note that I only ever added solder to the tip once per side.) I cleaned the soldering iron tip and repeated the process for the other sides. (As soon as you touch a pad with the tip of the iron you can see the solder shoot up the pin to the top. Never hold the iron tip on a pad, not even for a second. There is no reason to ever do that with this RAM upgrade.) After I did all four sides, I noticed that a couple of pins were bridged. (This totally happens and you need to handle the removal of extra solder correctly.) First, I added lots of flux to the bridged area and then I cleaned my soldering iron tip so that no solder was on it. (I used a wet but dry sponge.) Instead of dragging the tip across all pins, I rotated the iron by 90 degrees so that I could "pet" or stroke the chip's legs/feet. It only took a split second for the solder to quickly wick onto the surface area of the tip of my iron. After each attempt, I cleaned the tip and if I noticed that there wasn't enough flux on the pins, I added it before the next attempt. The solder wicks away typically in under three attempts at cleaning the bridge because I don't use much solder at all in this process. When I was happy with what I could see with my naked eyes, it was time to look at the work with the loupe (lighted magnifying glass). I'll start by saying that a jewelers loupe is a very inexpensive item that will easily fit in your toolbox and I believe it to be an essential tool for soldering chips (unless you have a microscope). A lighted jeweler's loupe (for me) is much better than a standard magnifying glass. With the loupe, I checked from the top to see nice separation between the pins and then I changed the viewing angle and looked between each pin on the chip and the pad on the board. Once I completed the verification with the loupe, I cleaned the soldered areas with the Isopropyl Alcohol, hooked up the board to the case and booted it up. It immediately went into the XBlast OS and I saw the 128MB at the top of the screen. From there, I then went into the tools and ran the RAM test and all was good. Anyway, I thought I'd share my experience in an attempt to inspire some of you to try this out. If any of the more experienced members would like to provide me with some good criticism, I welcome that too. Cheers!
  21. I can’t seem to find a clear answer anywhere. Do I remove the jumper pin from the sata HDD since the sata/ide adaptor has its own jumper pin selections? I just need to know the configuration so I can clone it using chimp. Any help would be appreciated thanks!

  23. I've near zero experience with hard mods on the og xbox. I'm pretty savvy with soldering so I'm considering doing a ram upgrade. I've got an aladdin XT clone in the mail. My question is this: Which bios will I need to flash on a 1.6 xbox for it to recognize 1tb of storage and the 128mb of ram?
