Clock Time Zone After Softmod

Recommended Posts

I installed Rocky5's Xbox Softmodding Tool v1.1.6 on both my v.12 and v1.6. The clock is set to autoset the time /date but it seems to be getting the wrong timezone, and I can't find where to change it. Could it be it needs a different SMTP IP address? I'm on GMT +0 (Lisbon, London).

Hi johnyept

As I have never used a soft mod I am only going by when hard moded.

I think you will need to access the original dash and there is a time zone setting there.

Thanks for the input. In the meanwhile I was messing around with the NKPatcher and nulled the HDD drive key before backing up the EEPROM and now it boots up to error 05, but I'll start a new topic about that and come back to this one once the HDD is back to working order...

If you are getting error 05, NKPatcher in Rocky5's Xbox Softmodding Tool is broken.  It should not leave the hard drive in an unlocked state.  It should have locked it with the new password generated with the new NULL'd password.

Did it show that there were several different steps being performed when you NULL'd the key?  The last step should have been locking the drive.  You didn't happen to power off the console in the middle of the process, did you?

The first thing to do after softmodding is to backup the eeprom.bin file to your PC.

Installation of Rocky5's Xbox Softmodding Tool told you several times to make sure you backup the eeprom.bin file once the softmod process was complete. 

Not to do anything else until you did so.

Yes it did say so. I did back up the v1.6 but forgot to backup the v1.3, so it's all on me. But it also serves as a learning curve for playing around with hotswapping :D

Just put mods chips in and give up on the soft mod

Look on eBay the mod chips are cheap

Funny you mention that, because I already have 2 on the way, but they'll take a while to arrive. Meanwhile I decided to mess around with softmodding to learn a little more about both methods.

Setting the Timezone

On the Rocky5's Xbox Softmodding Tool modded console, use the Extras Disc or upload via FTP a copy of the 5960 version of the MS Dashboard files to the root of the C drive.  Use UnleashX's menu to Launch MS Dashboard or the file manager to browse to the C drive and select xboxdash.xbe.  Edit the time zone in the Settings menu.

Update: I forgot to include a link to download the Please login or register to see this link. or where to get the Extras Disc - go into the current Please login or register to see this link. build's subfolder, as of today Build v1.1.6, then into the Extras Disc subfolder.  Download the dot iso file found there and burn this disc image file to DVD-R media.  Boot it in your Xbox.

Thank you for the instructions and the links. I used the FTP method, ran xboxdash.xbe from the File Explorer, changed the timezone in the settings, powered off/on, and I'm back to the softmodded GUI with the correct date/time, so problem solved! I'll do the same in the other console once I fix it, but that's a problem for another topic :)

      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
      Reasonable/
      Convenient/
      Easieast/
      Safest/
      Cost efficient/
      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.
