Starting From Scratch, Just Bought a Softmodded XBox, Please Help Me a Little. Thanks.

Recommended Posts

So thats the thing, I just got my first original Xbox! :)

 

I live in Chile and in here having something like this is very niche hehehe. Nevermind, I opened it, cleaned it, changed the thermal paste, replace the IDE cable for a 40 cable and bought a new controller, because it came with the controllers smashed.

 

There is no modchip on it, because when I opened it up, I saw absolutely nothing.

 

It has a 360 looking dashboard called XBMC360, according to the hardware info, it is a v1.6 Xbox, it has an Xcalibur video decoder, CPU runs at 731.55mhz.

Detected retail BIOS is: 5838.01

Made in China, year 2005, week 25, line 5.

XBMC pre-2.1 (compiled: May 27 2007)

Mplayer XBMC-SVN-r8532 (May 25 2007)

 

I am not asking to give a me tutorial on how to install another HDD (which I will as it has a 40GB Maxtor) I just one to know the basics you know? Why so many partitions on the HDD? What is the main software that runs a modded Xbox? What is a skin?

 

That is it! The rest I will try to find on my own, I just want to know the "basics". Thank you guys, I am leaving you some pics, and also a picture of an original "Japanese" controller I got in the mail just today! Like we say in my country: "When lacking bread, cakes are good" ;) (What I love is the cable in the controller, it's transparent lemon green.

 

Cheers to all!

Hector aka Nacho el Kid.

Welcome

If it was me I would fit a mod chip then you won't have to worry about stuffing around with softmod's, Work  Miss Google for Aladdin Modchip.

Ebay around 4 usd or AliExpress about the same.

Search for here for softmod that will give you some reading if you don't want to go the modchip route.

Don't be afraid to ask question's

 

Cheers

I was watching some of Mr Mario videos! And now I have my Xbox modded to the latest Sofmod! Tomorrow I will be replacing the HDD ;)

My question was mostly about the basics, how does the file structure on the Xbox HDD works, stuff like that. And my latest question was why my 1.6 Xbox it´s not keeping the time and date!

The clock capacitor is in good condition physically so I dont understand. Cheers!

      Hey guys, just getting back into the Xbox modding scene. Recently pulled out my original 1.0 with Xecuter modchip and upgraded the hard drive to a 1TB and did the clock capacitor removal. I bought the Pound HDMI cable since it seemed like a lot of people vouched for it and I'm not sure if I just got a bad one or what but there seems to be a very green tint to everything. It's very noticeable during the boot sequence. Anybody else have issues with this cable?
