XEcuter or Sftmod

Recommended Posts

Leave the modchip.  No need to softmod.  Easier to install a new HDD as it doesn't have to be locked with a modchip installed.

Others will most likely say something different. :)

What X2 BIOS are you using? 

There may be something newer to use.

Update: You shouldn't (can't) have both installed at the same time.  If so, you generally get a black screen when you expect the replacement dashboard to show up.

I guess it depends mostly on what chip you have. Personally, unless it’s a 1.6, I would pull the chip and replace with a solid TSOP, then zero the HDD key. It is easier to install a replacement drive with a chip, but if you have a spare chip running around, it also makes it that much easier to recover from a drive failure or some terrible BIOS issue, or other mods in the future. 

 

Tl;dr, if this is your only system and don’t plan future mods, leave it alone.

      Selling a unique system to a new owner, I put together a great console with unique installed custom parts with a stealth switch to choose between empowering a lighted display or a dark environment while gaming. 
        This console is carrying an Xecuter 3 signature mixed with XCM's fitted 3x hard drive bay module which allows you to switch between 3 different hard drives which contains three different dashboards.    On the primary dashboard running UnleashX is themed with my signature advanced new age dynamic themes that I personally created and only available to valued supporters.    In the inside of the console has dual custom LED heat sinks on the GPU and CPU branded by Vantec's rare out-of-production IceBerq 4 Pros.    HardWare:   v1.2 Xbox Dashboard TSOP X2 Bios Samsung DVD Drive (Rare)Xecuter 3 Jewel (Mad Modders Edition) - only one I have... (Rare)x2 Vantec IceBerq 4 Pro (CPU & GPU) - re-pasted with Arctic MX4 (Rare)Xecuter 3 (Christmas Edition) Chip - Includes bank selector on front (Rare) Xecuter solderless Xapt3r V1.0-1.5  Custom LED Rocker Switch (Powers LEDs On/Off) (Rare)XCM Xtender - Extends the Xbox hard drive capacity to 3 drives total. Custom Blue LED PCB face plate under glow bars - hooked up to rocker switch Custom Blue/Red front eject/power LED Custom Blue LED jewel PCB - hooked up to rocker switch Custom Blue LED controller ports x3 Stock 8GB Seagate Hard Drives.   Software:   Drive 1: UnleashX Dashboard Emulators Homebrew Applications   Drive 2: User Interface Dashboard Emulators Homebrew Applications Drive 3: XDK Lancher Dashboard Console Applications Pros: Has rare hardware Custom colored boot animation Config Live 3294 with recovery (flashed to work with v1.6 xbox as well) Ability to boot 3 different drives on the same Xbox Turn LEDs on and off with a switch   Cons: Some scratches or nicks on the console Xapt3r has a wire soldered to the D0 (pin broke off) - works better than before. XCM IDE cable cannot be removed from Hard Drives(will result in damage to the IDE cable) IceBerq 4 Pros are fans noisy (due to age)    FYI: If console fails to boot on arrival means the pin from the Xapt3r has fallen out, the bank select button was switched in transfer or chip has come loose (you can still access the inside). Keep in mind when taking the console apart or modifying it by any means do not remove IDE cables from the hard drives, they're basically plugged in permanently.   I like to keep customers up to date to know what they are buying if you have any questions please ask.   Selling as is.

      Selling on ebay to make it fair on UK buyers. I really want this to go to a good home, I am only selling as I am moving house and need the money towards fees otherwise I would have kept it eternally haha. Thanks for taking the time to look.

      Hi,
      I want to get back into making custom x2 4981 bios's but need the XBOX TEXT.3ds file as mentioned in the screen grab below (x-projects.org is long gone).
      I know I could use a newer bios but I liked messing with this particular one and having everything on the tsop rather than having a config file on the hdd.
      If anyone has it could you please PM me? I have 3ds max and deep exploration but I can't find this, any help or links appreciated
