Time passes by, so does the life of our OG Xbox Clock caps (if they are not removed already) but also technology in cap replacement options.
So I wonder what the most
Clock cap replacement of today could be?
I know some people are not bothered without it and some people (lile myself) that would like to have it working
Through the years I read that it can be everything inbetween replacing it with a
1F 2.5v original spec AeroGel cap,
10F 2.5v AeroGel for longer working time,
a CR2032 battery socket with 1N4148 diod in series to prevent REcharge, which would not be good,
2.4v NiMh rechargable battery.
My idea, not yet installed and tested, is to solder an AAA batteries socket with two 1.2v 800mA replaceable batteries to the old Clock Cap points and try to fit it in somewhere. The batteries gives 2.7v fully charged and would (theoretically, if the Xbox can give them enough charging) give more than enough unplugged power time and it would all in all cost around 5$.
So now in 2020, what is your clock cap replacement (ideas, pictures, pros/cons, results)?
Hello everyone. I've asked this question on FB, but would like to verify with this crowd here.
I have softmodded an v1.6 using Rocky5 most recent version. I would like to swap to a 2TB SATA drive. I understand this can be done with a hot swap, cloning the original drive with chimp and then formatting with xb partitioner.
Is this correct? Why does this work if the bios is supposed to need LBA-48 to see a large drive? Is it because each partition is small enough to not need LBA-48?
Thanks in advance.
