As a fun educational exercise to wanted to replace the CPLD logic on the cheap AladdinXT 4032 Original Xbox modchip and convert it to a basic LCD driver, consequently it looses the ability to load a custom bios. I consider this to be something like the old X-addons generic LCD-display mods (but a fair bit simpler)
The Lattice LC4032V CPLD on the cheap Alladin modchips is extremely limited, so this is a hacky bare minimum to reduce macro-cell usage to fit onto the CPLD. Therefore it can't really support any extra functionality over the bare minimum.
It doesn't support backlight control (just full brightness always)
It has some very basic contrast PWM control through the dashboard settings.
Anyway just wanted to share what I came up with

Ideally, you could design a small PCB (and maybe use a larger CPLD) to improve the installation. that is something I may do in the future

Hi im new to this forum but not new to modding . soon I will be installing an alladin plus x2 chip in my version 1.6 xbox therefore hard modding it .
I seen where people are putting xbmc origins on their softmodded x boxes but find little information on getting a dashboard as such on it after I hard modded it ?
1.could somebody point me towards a prebuilt xbmc origins with instructions on how to install after I have successfully hard modded my xbox
note: I will be using a ide to sata adapter to use a 2 tb hd or larger in the system
2. I plan to ftp my game files over to the hd another question I have. Can I use the hard drive as an external hard drive after I have installed a front end and transfer all my files at once with an external sata to usb adapter ?
Past mod exp is
ps2 softmod and hard mod with 4tb hd
wii loaded softmod
wii u softmod loaded

Moderator: Topic Title changed from Aladdin Chip Modder to Aladdin Chip Modder - XBmc Origins Installation, How?
Hey all. i hope you can help.
My 'Project Xbox' (V1.4) which i generally tinker with has an Aladdin X2 running IND bios.
All my other Xbox's are either soft modded or have Xceuter 2 installed.
I've never tsop'd a console and was thinking that i should give it a go and move the Aladdin X2 off too one of my 1.6's that has been soft modded.
Can i boot to dash, pull the chip and then flash the tsop? Assume i have already bridged the 1.4 mobo ready for a tsop flash?
( This box, like all my others has a failed DVD that doesn't read discs. so need to do all this from the xbox itself)
And... what software should i flash with?
