1st things first...thanks for the tut!

I've been reading around and found that another way that will help to save some time, is to buy some prewired LEDs off of eBay seem like a good way to go, esp if someone is planning to sell them.  Time vs money.

There are quite a few resistor calculators on the internet so, you can work out what resistor you need to add to the LEDs you buy. They can have different voltage tolerances depending on output and size etc. 

In some cases just adding all four of the ports in series can drop the volts enough not to need resistors.

They are not the right spec as they are for 6v and you'll be hooking them up to 12v. So, you'll have to wire 2 in series to make it work.

I thought the USB ports were 5v? I've read that in a few different places. Just want to verify so I do  the calculations properly and get the correct resistors.

They are 5v but I guess you could also wire them up to a 12v source instead like the one supplying the HD.

 

For everyone who want to work out what resistors they need

That is a great idea.

Do you think something like these are the right spec?

Did you guys find any suitable ones ? Or did you guys buy any on ebay? Just seeing whats possible since my soldering is a bit on the weak side and the less I have to do the better!! Thanks !!

Any benefits to using the flat square led's over round ones, haven't seen a comparison yet, can see they are smaller and maybe a better fit size wise but are they as bright ?

I used 5mm led and 100 omhs resistor and did not have any kind of error worked perfectly just be careful when soldering and do not let any metal part touch the metal cover of the doors that works quiet.f51c92ec374ee1da010cd18dfca89f1d.jpg

      This HDMI mod replaces the AV port completely and offers an HDMI port instead for convenience.
      The Installed HDMI mod does look like this:
      Please login or register to see this attachment.
      The HDMI mod does offer 5.1 sound through the HDMI port. If you don't need 5.1 (or your TV might not support it) you can simply disable 5.1 audio and get digital stereo audio instead. For those who want to add an optical output to there Xbox the HDMI mod does offer 3 solder points to add a TOTX178 optical transmitter.
      To get the HDMI mod installed you first need to get the AV-port removed.
      To get it removed you could either use a hot-air station or a heat-gun to remove it at once. But that would put a lot of thermal stress on the board!
      The better and recommended alternative is to disassemble the Port and remove it one part at a time.
      First desolder the Metal Tab holding it in place by heating them and prying the metal tab up to pull it out.
      Please login or register to see this attachment.
      When the metal tab is removed take a sidecutter and clip off all the pins from the video port as they are what keeps the Port in place.
      When they are clipped off you can take the port cover off by simply pulling it upwards.

      Next step is to remove the remaining plastic piece and desolder the rest of the pins and clean up the area a little.
      Position the first Adapter exactly as show in the photo. The red arrow marks the PTH that has to be alligned centered.
      Please login or register to see this attachment.
      Once Positioned solder all the marked points down and make sure they are properly connected before continuing with the second adapter!
      Please login or register to see this attachment.
      Next up is the second adapter. Just position it above the first adapter using the 2 big holes to allign them and solder down the marked points. Again check continuity before continuing with the next PCB!
      Please login or register to see this attachment.
      Last PCB is the HDMI mod itself. You need to position it slightly off centered on the second PCB. The HDMI ports pins will be position it correctly. Just solder down the points that are marked with the red arrows and the install is almos done!
      Please login or register to see this attachment.
      Last up is setting the Video mode. You need to add 2 small bridges on the bottom side of the PCB. Just solder in the 2 bridges and the video mode is set correctly!

      If you want to use the optical out you can easily add a toslink port to the HDMI mod by simply soldering a Transmitter to the 3 marked pins.

      I have recently just installed a spare x3ce I have to an og xbox however some bits was missing, I dont have a switchboard or the cable to go to hdd/lan/d0 
      I have installed the pin header fine and connected the x3 and everything lights up fine i get 5v and 3.3v light ( I have soldered d0 on the back and connected it to the d0 pin on the modchip) however now the console frags. Im pretty confidant my pin header is installed correctly as I have ram upgraded the same board I just cant understand why the console keeps fragging. I have not connected the hdd/ lan but I didnt think that would make any difference? Also the console boots normally without the mod chip on but obviously hangs on the xbox logo due to the 128mb ram.

      Hey guys, I decided to rig up a tutorial for everyone who's looking to try out or install an insane LED controller chip in their Xbox. 
      These chips are now for sale for 45USD, please contact me directly for availability and purchase.
      XERC CME (Case Modders Edition) was manufactured by Sickmods back in 2005.
      This chip has disappeared off the market a long time ago and is very difficult to obtain a real one. With a bunch of research and work and finding contacts this chip was able to be cloned.
      Installation Manual PDF: Please login or register to see this link.
      If you haven't downloaded the PDF file i can give you a run down on what the chip can do.
      Power Console On and Off via Xbox remote. Eject or close DVD tray on the fly with remote. Audio LED pulsation, LED's pulse to the sound of your Xbox. Remote configuration, setup and configure the buttons the way you want. LED chaser Mode, toggle through modes changes the LED chase patterns with remote. Speed up or Slow down led sequence. SmartXX OS boot Support Connects to MS DVD Dongle internally for menu browsing with remote (Perfect for XBMC media) Installation - (Motherboard to Chip)
      There are points on the Xerc CME chip which need to be connected to the bottom of the Xbox motherboard depending on which version you have.
      Details of Chip:
      LED +/- (Indicator light for the chip used for configuration of the remote and initiation when plugged in.) +5V (5 Volt Power Source, connect to the 5 volt source on the Xbox mother board, Powers LED's) PWR (Power, connects to the power on the Xbox motherboard) GND (Ground, connects to the grounding  on the Xbox motherboard) PO (PowerON or RF, detects if the console is powered on, connects to the PO on motherboard) DB (Drive Button or Eject Button, the chip is able to eject your DVD drive by Remote, connects to the eject button port on motherboard) PB (Power Button, the chip is able to power your console on or off via remote if connected to the motherboards PB point) IRd (Infrared Signal, connects to the IRd point on IR receiver.) IR- (Infrared grounding, connects to the grounding IR-minus point of the IR Receiver) IR+ (Infrared power, connects to the power IR+ point of the IR Receiver) PB5 (Not Used, mainly for people who want to program in another mode) PB4 (VU Meter for the chip, Connects to the Audio L point on the motherboard) PA7 (Not Used, mainly for people who want to program in another mode) +5V Square (power point for the LED's, connect the power side of your LED's directly to the chip. H1 (Port 1 of the led Chaser mode (Grounding point for LED's)) H2 (Port 2 of the led Chaser mode (Grounding point for LED's)) H3 (Port 3 of the led Chaser mode (Grounding point for LED's)) H4 (Port 4 of the led Chaser mode (Grounding point for LED's)) H5 (Port 5 of the led Chaser mode (Grounding point for LED's)) H6 (Port 6 of the led Chaser mode (Grounding point for LED's)) H7 (Port 7 of the led Chaser mode (Grounding point for LED's)) - if Firmware Supports (P12 & Higher) Please login or register to see this link.
      Installation - (Chip to LEDs)
      you can essentially use your own schematic for LED's but this is a diagram on how they connect in sequence. 
      the chip simply shuts off one of the chaser ports and turns on the adjacent port making the LED's chase each other in a pattern,
      according to this diagram its for 3mm blue LED's with a total of 34 LED's in the top Lid. H1 port requires a 22 ohm Resistor and  H2-H6 requires a 15 ohm resistor.
      Port H7 is not used in this diagram but could be rigged up in parallel.
      if you are unsure about what resistance to use per LED here is a link to calculate what ohms you need: Please login or register to see this link.

      In Power/Ground:
      Please login or register to see this link.
      Installation - (Chip to Microsoft DVD Dongle)
      Connecting to the MS Dongle requires a 1N4148 Switching Signal Diode so the chip is able to detect and switch over to menu browsing.
      you can buy these on E-bay for dirt cheap.

      This is the Installation of it in an Xbox:
