Not to sure why this hasnt been spotted yet no doubt he will make a release thread on it in the next few days this is just a heads up 

spacer.pngogxbox legend Ryzee119 has done it again for anyone who has a Xenium modchip and wants lcd support with temp status fan speed and compatable with everyapp that i could find that has lcd support.

You bloody ripper cheers Ryzee119

I was under the impression this was a  No modchip solution to having an LCD? 

in my opinion, something like that is better then running through the modchip, as they seem to be really finicky or maybe its just my 2 chips, but the screen likes to glitch out..or even blank itself out if its idle for to long.

but i look forward to more info on this, thanks for sharing

There is the lcd-mod made by x-addons a few years ago that allowed use of an LCD without a modchip.

are they still available somewhere? I hope there is a open source project like this.

An lcd mod that doesnt require a modchip may be something I will look into in the future. The spi2par thing was a simple thing to fill some time and learn a bit about the LCD interface.

Im sure itll help a few people out there :)

Thanks for sharing!

i absolutely love the added temp feature ive been testing various cpu pastes on a few boxes and am happy to report no real noticeable differences artic silver 5 compared to the cheaper deepcool z9 am still waiting for my thermal grizzly tube to arrive

That would be fantastic. Btw, just checked Benny Diamond's Xblast  thread, he shared the svf files for Aladdin XT CPLD, maybe by looking at what he did, there is a fast way to replace the LC4032 by LC4064 and add the needed code to make it work with 20x4 LCD?

Aladdin Xblast thread with download link


and a quote of Benny's answer on reddit:


There are a couple of code examples for Xbox modchips. The first one is an archive of "leaked" CPLD codes for Aladdin XTs released by hkmod. You can find it in the download section of Eurasia.nu website. It has been proven to be bogus info, this is not the real leaked code of Aladdin XT. It's just some random attempt at creating a clone I guess. None of the vhdl source file will work as intended. However, the code is relevant to understanding how to properly interface the LPC bus to some extent. It's what got me started when I started working on my own implementation of the Aladdin XT PLUS2 CPLD code.

Next you've got milksop and filtror devices that both interfaced the LPC port. They do contain working VHDL code albeit it's not code you can use directly to make your own modchip. I wish I knew about these when I started tinkering with hkmod's code. This one is much better, cleaner and I suspect will actually work out of the box if programmed on the proper target device.

A piece of doc that helped me for LCD interface is the SmartXX developer manual. It contains port mapping info on how to interface the LCD and other peripherals on SmartXX devices.

The SmartXX developer manual is probably one of or both these files called:
SmartXX LT OPX dox

SmartXX Datasheet


can't put directs links because site assigns a download key to each user.

I will probably just create a basic LCD interface kinda like the Xaddons LCD-mod board.

As an educational experience i'll just design something from scratch

@eustachy1973 yes! that's what I was looking for. I needed that register map to hook LPC data through my CPLD. I was using the XblastOS source code before, but this is nicer.

However, I would like to have temperature on the LCD, XMBC does not offer it.

XBMC can actually display temperatures by modifying the /system/UserData/LCD.xml

There is parameters called lcd.cputemperature, lcd.gputemperature, lcd.hddtemperature and lcd.fanspeed

But these are not displayed outside of XBMC.

The advantage of this board is that it can read these from the Xbox SMBus so can update it always regardless of the program running.

      So i kind of excited to finally have it and want to ask if there is anything else i need to get this running.
      i have the little board for my xbox so in theory i should be good to go but i wanna make sure i ask those more experienced then me so i don't mess up.

      Hey all, I recently ordered a 1.0 motherboard and hdd off of ebay and went to mod it.  Before modding, I booted them up and found them to be working properly.  The clock cap was leaking bad so I replaced that.  I soldered up the pin header to the LPC, connected a wire to the D0 pad and routed that to the Open Xenium I have, and went to boot it up.  I'm greeted with a solid red LED on the modchip, and the xbox booting up into the normal bios.  Attempting to boot into XeniumOS by pressing the eject button yields the same results.  This modchip did originally come out of a 1.6, flashed with Evox M8+ 1.6. 
      Just to rule out the modchip going bad on me, I wired it back up into the 1.6 and it booted perfectly.  I threw an Aladdin chip, that's also flashed with Evox M8+ 1.6, into the 1.0 also, and it will not boot into custom bios either.  I've reflowed my joints multiple times, and my D0 solder job is good (I believe lol), so I'm really not sure what's going on.  Any tips would be greatly appreciated.  LPC solder joints have been reflowed like 4 times so they look bad lol, forgive me.

      Thinking of doing another chip, probably on a v1.6, and I was wondering which is the best way to go rather than using an Aladdin.
      There's Open Xenium Ice White/Gold/Sunset Red with v1.6 LPC rebuild board included available in the UK but there are also some interesting looking XeniumICE bundles I'd have to import from Aus. But even with shipping costs its not prohibitively expensive, in comparison.
      Opinions or other suggested options?
