Og XBox V1.1 With XBit (Evox 3.6)

Recommended Posts

Hi all,

I just bought an OG Xbox v1.1 with Xbit modchip (Evox 3.6 bios is loaded). I still have to open it up for cleaning and checking if the clock capacitor is still in place.

Up until now, I had only softmodded my other Xbox.

So, what should I do to this one? Can I update the modchip's bios with Hexen Tools, or should I use the old updater tool for Xbit?

I guess I could still update the dashboard using Hexen tools, right?

I'd really appreciate your help! :)

Looks like a very interesting board.  Did you Xbox come with the external board?  Do you see DIP switches anywhere?  Lots of room for experimentation on that board.

I'd try to flash it with the HeXEn disc or with EvolutionX dash (using IND-BIOS 5004.67).  But, move right into cleaning the Xbox, removing the clock cap, replacing the thermal paste.

You will have to use the X-bit PC software to flash the chip.  From what I understand about this modchip, it cannot be flashed using Evoxdash or other Xbox flashing apps.  Access to write to the flash memory chip is only available through the USB port via the X-Bit's PC software.

Yes, I have some cooler Master paste that I'll also be using.

There's the external board also there with the DIP switches.

I already have the XP version of it.

Will try to use it with my Win10 box, otherwise I'll have to download a Win XP virtual machine to try it out.

Found some time last weekend to clean up the board, remove the clock capacitor and put new thermal paste in.

So, the clock capacitor wasn't leaking. The other capacitors seemed to be in good shape, at least for a layman. No bulging, etc.

I removed it anyway, cleaned the board with ethanol, new thermal paste and called it a day. Processor temperatures dropped by 3ºC.

Here's some fotos I took during the process.

      Took me 2 days to get all the wiring right. for the wii2hdmi for og xbox modd ... using a wii2hdmi device ordered off eBay you can also find an Alibaba and other places like this. Very inexpensive around 5 Canadian dollars. You're also going to need some sort of a donor Xbox RCA wires or component wires in order to pull this off. There is 11 connections total five of which are ground I do not suggest not adding all the ground cuz could cause interference. Had pretty good luck I made to both of them are crystal clear with no interference. I tested on version 1.0 as well as version 1.4 turned out very good. I tried to look up and down online for some sort of schematic nothing appeared. There was one picture that was in Spanish but it was misleading I tried to look into it to find out who the original inventor was found the person at XB Classics a Brazilian site. After conversating with him he told me that he had better pictures but he would not share. Then I noticed a site that they has linked where they were selling these to the equivalent of 40 US dollars a piece so that is the reason the images that they uploaded are just there to confuse people. So that they cannot make it. Does not include audio left or right. And apparently La stands for 5 V? Don't ask me but that's what the guy told me makes no sense at all. I spent two days getting the wiring correct. I documented everything and put it on a YouTube video (link2come) was trying to figure out the best way to make this readily available for everybody in the world any Xbox Enthusiast should have a low cost HDMI adapter solution available to them this is where these schematics come in. Again I didn't notice any interference at all. Just a little bit in the Bios when only running 480 but there's not much you can do unless you re Flash the BIOS to force. I've noticed people in the group posting pictures not even having soldering skills and getting very good results from this method. In theory you can use this exact same adapter in order to have an internal HDMI solution. These images are water marked because these are going to be the only good images that are online and I seen the way XB classic does their water mark and it really bugs me that they did that so I wanted to make sure that everyone knows where it came from. That being said I'm Mister James Reid really helped me out with this he volunteered his services in order to take my hard copy drawings that were on paper and make it look something presentable. Which he did and he did a great job thank you very much James I did in fact alter the images to have the watermark across them. Sorry about that but I figured since I put in the work I deserve to have my name on it. If you have any questions please do not hesitate I do not check this site every day but I do come in from time to time. Thanks again and I hope people online can use this receive money from the big corporations like pounds and hyperkin charging ridiculous amounts of money for something so cheap... I've also got a lot of questions recently about people asking if this is any better than component. It uses the component wires in order to transfer the signal into HDMI. I'm not too technical with that end but when looking up the chip number on the actual board for the Wii to HDMI adapter I did notice in there schematics and their breakdown for the actual board they did mention that the video board that does the decoding actually does video on hand splint what kind of video enhancement I have no idea. But it should be an enhancement over component if they are speaking the truth. Anyway gentleman without further delay here are the schematics. I hope this hope somebody somewhere. Thank you very much Frank

      Hi - I am trying to rebuild an xbox hard drive - I have the eeprom - a meant gave me an old Dell IDE drive - I know HDM v. 1.9 will work on it as I used it a few years ago.  Does anyone know where I can get  the C and E drive files for the rebuild?  Thanks
    • By C64MidRezzie
      Is it possible to attach Xbox IDE hard drive to a windows 7 or later SATA PC and build the hard drive from a softmodded xbox or do I need to find a really old PC?  I know I used a Dell Optiplex years ago but I have it away to a mate a couple of years ago and he doesn't have it anymore.  If I need an old PC can anyone recommend a specific spec - as I might have to buy one second hand - thanks in advance.
