Its Been a While, Where Do I Start?

Recommended Posts

my xbox was the first console i bought with my own money. a few days ago it stopped working (cant recall the error) so i took the opportunity to upgrade the hdd. i kept a backup of the eeprom and i used the xboxhdm with the usb to sata cable. 

worked somewhat fine, i got a "funtional" xbox with the dashboard. but i feel like im missing a bunch of things

for example: fable wont run (comes back to dashboard)

coin ops does the same

i no longer have an option to clean the cache neither i have the option to launch the m$ dashboard (i used to)

i have no idea what im suposed to do. 

1.6b xbox, softmod only. im currently loading the hexen2019 in hopes that it has a "select this to INSTALL ALL THE THINGS" and be done with it.

I believe the latest versions of Xboxhdm install the Rocky5 softmod automatically, so your menus have probably been configured a bit different. 

You don’t really need the MS dash as you can use the extras disc to change video modes, but if you’d like to maybe dual-boot the MS dash, check here:

This disc can also be used to clear your cache and can run from HDD. 

If clearing the cache doesn’t fix the games, try a reinstall.

Hmmm I also have problem with some games not starting / freezing and I'm not sure it has anything to do with what is installed, seems more like complex compatibility problems between BIOS, xbox model, video display of the console and of the game, installed dash an even maybe type and model of modding (in case of tsop / hardmod)

Seems tricky to debug

For instance for me Super Monkey Ball Deluxe is rebooting my console and as you can see here it seems really tricky : Please login or register to see this link.

This actually reminded me of the issue that 1.6 consoles have with 480p. 

 May prove helpful, at least for fable. 

 

FWIW, I’m not sure if CoinOPS or Super Monkey Ball for sure have this issue, as I have neither. Can’t reproduce the issue with fable on my 1.6 or 1.1.

What replacement dashboard does the console boot into?

The clear cache menu item missing is caused by the menu item not present in the dashboard's configuration file.  You can download, text edit, then upload/overwrite the current configuration file to add it.

Update: If UnleashX, go into the File Explorer and delete all the files present on the X, Y and Z drives - game cache drives.

      Make yourselves comfy this is kinda a doozy 
      I am totally new to the OGXB modding scene. I recently picked up a Crystal Xbox at a used games store, and the guy there told me that it had been modded and has some emulators. He really doesn't know very much about modding so he couldn't give me a lot of info about what had been done to it, but since it was only $50 I snagged it. He even threw in a free game as well, so I went with the 1st Splinter Cell, (which I knew would come in handy for the Linux exploit if/when I needed to run it)
      Now that I can dig around in it here's what I DO know:
      It is a 1.6 XB (kernel 5838) It has EvolutionX 3935 It says the BIOS version is UNKNOWN (not sure if that's just from it having EvolutionX) It is an NTSC model (from Canada I believe? The power supply on the back says 100 V - 127 V ~ 2.1A ... 50/60 HZ) What I DON'T know is:
      Has it been softmodded or modchipped? (Haven't had time to disassemble it to check, not sure if there is a way to tell without disassembly. However I DID notice that the Linux save file for the SC exploit is already on the console, not sure if that means it has been only been softmodded though) Can I switch from EvolutionX to UnleashX? (just preference, figure it will depend on if it is chipped or only softmodded) AND is there a way to run backups without swapping a HDD? (I do plan to swap it sometime once I have some fun money, the Lock is still Enabled) EDIT: I also don't know about the state of the clock capacitor, being a 1.6 I know I need to check that I also CANNOT go to the MS Xbox Dash from EvolutionX (ERROR 21)
      RIght now the Xbox works well (although I probably need to replace the rubber band in the disk drive soon because sometimes I have to give it love taps to open) but I really just want to be able to run emulators (which it already does) play backups, and do an HDD swap sooner or later. Since I bought this console already modded in some capacity I just don't know exactly what's been done to it and what I will be able to do since it is a 1.6. Any help is really appreciated

      Hi, I was wondering about this new dumb newbe question.  Do I have to hard mod my original Xbox for me to put in a bigger HD in it? 
       
      From what I could find on the internet the answer is yes, but I came across other videos that say no.  So now I am confused.
       
         Also when I soft Mod my xbox the ring not turns green at start up, but when I get the menu it turns yellow?  Everything works fine, plays games fine and stuff.  Should I be concerned about this?
       
            Thanks!
