      Hello Friends,
      I have started a new Xbox ( My wife will kill me). This time I took the time to give you some photos of my madness:
      Step1: Disassembling
      Please login or register to see this attachment.
      It was very dirty, this is a 1.1 version. I immediately removed clock capacitor (Yes a gamegear is also lying on the ground) and change thermal paste.

      Step2:  Hot water and soap cleaning in the kitchen on plastic parts

      Step3: The same for the shields

      Step4: Shield painting to prevent corrosion (EMI points will be paint removed after painting). This is the grey primer, after I put what I use black or white paints.

      Step5: And why don't adding more ram, this board is very nice. With help of my xblast lite, one chip after another.

      Note, that the chip N°4 gave me some problem, after test, the xbox start then stop, I check and redid the solder 3 times, after first, no boot problem on Xblast, but the chip was not anymore detected. So I decided to gently remove it, and to replace it with a new one. And it worked, I could go on with the last one.
      For people upgrading their Xbox, don't forget that a chip can fail even if it is new like for me if you realize bad solder and make a short circuit.

      As you can see, it remains some flux. It is a bit hard to remove all as I worked for a long time on chip N°4. (Near PSU connector)
      Step6: I have to confirm that everything is ok and check memory inside operating system. You can see after the last chip that XblastOS show 128 Mib.

      Inside tool menu (in settings), you can test your memory. This is what you have to do after each chip added. My prefered order is chip 2, the chip 3 ( both bottom side), then the 4th because some caps take lot of place to solder and finish by number 1.

      and finally check under operating system, to confirm that no blocks are failled. Some blocks can't be tested as they are used by operating system.

      Step7: DVD cleaning, Pot settings, new belt installation and Ide to Sata improvements.
      Please login or register to see this attachment.
      As you can see, I replace always jumper by solder ( master / slave) I had a case where the jumper falled during shippment.
      I also replace the 2 bad quality chineese capacitors bye Panasonic ones.

      The whole DVD case was cleaned with isopropyl alcohol, and also lens, motor.
      New greased has been applied to axles and caddy.
      DVD pot was 2400 Ohm. It is very often a too high value like this one. Samsung drives like value between 1900 and 2000 ohm.
      Look the copy  speed result after that: more than 6 Mb/s

      Who wants it ? I don't spoke about the Sata HDD. I will use ever a 500 Gb, or a 3tb ( I know xbox can only handle 2 Tb )
      If someone wants it and leaves in europe. I will put this box on stress test during a week and it will be ready for sale.
      It can also be delivered with original HDD ( Seagate IDE and for the future IDE2SATA adapter provided)
      If you are interrested in, send a PM.
      Bye

      I have a 1.0 and a 1.6 version XBox, both of which were acquired for free. I have started to dip into modding them to do some emulation after watching an excellent video on the Rocky5 softmod from Modern Vintage Gamer. Gonna slap some bigger hard drives in them and have some fun!
