Updating Unleashx XBox Dashboard

Recommended Posts

Hi everyone, I was brought as a kid a modded/chipped Xbox, with unleashx (version 534 I think).

A

AnywayI was thinking its about time to update it but don't really know how to go about it! I'm unsure of what the modchip is, so I've attached a photo and it has switches/lights on front of console, I don't know if it matters but it is a 1.0 Xbox with fan on heatsink! I have removed clock capacitor! 

 

I basically want to update it because 1 the software randomly bugs up and have to restart it a couple of times, 2 want to change settings to NTSC (can't on this version of unleashx) and 3 just because I like messing with things 😂 

 

I did download a newer version of unleashx but it said to copy default.xbe, I don't have that file on my c drive it's called unleash.xbe, don't know if I'm looking in right place! 

 

Any help would be appreciated, thank you for your time and any help

If you look on your c partition you should have a evoxdash.xbe. file, if you rename this evoxdash_default.xbe and then name your latest unleash.xbe file to evoxdash.xbe it will replace your current dashboard.

Add a copy of enigmah to your app file to flip between PAL and NTSC. Just open it and choose between PAL and NTSC. Then go to M$ dash and in video unlock 480 and 720.

Using file explorer go into your c partition and load unldash.xbe, if this is your dash just rename this unldash_default.xbe and rename your latest version of unleashx to unldash.xbe and put it in the c partition.

I tried this, it started to load, then showed unleashx as if I did quick report with L,R,Back,Black/White, so I don't know if it booted

If you ran that xbe and then unleash loaded then thats your dash. If your unsure you can FTP across the files for a different dash and run that, and then go into file explorer on that dash and run the unldash.xbe  and see if unleash loads. If so that confirms thats your dash and you can go ahead with what @Ging3rguy said above :)

Okay will give that a try, thank you both! So would any dash work with the mod chip? Or am I best just sticking with unleashx like I originally planned, thank you

Any dash will work as long as you rename its .xbe file to what you rchip/bios is expecting :)

Oh okay thanks, night see what other ones are available, any recommendations? Many thanks all :)

Depends what you want, if you want to keep it simple then Unleash or Evolution X dashes are fine, Otherwise you can run one of the variations of XBMC as your dash. If you can burn a disc then use Rocky5's softmod extras disc to install the dash you require, if you cant burn discs then ftp the contents of the extras iso to your xbox.

hi all

i am new here and have a problem with xbox. has a chip installed which has x shadow on it, when boots goes only to ms dash when chip on it lights up but will not boot into unleash x as it has had this on before because there is a save file in the memory but cannot do anything with it as it will only let you copy or delete it. also when chip is on will not load anything but original games.

i also have hexen disk downloaded in iso form but when i try and extract it nothing appears as if iso is empty but does show 333 mb on iso file.

any help would be grateful.

      So i tried to upgrade my 1.1 xbox to 128mb.
      I installed the first chip successfully and xblastOS flashed to TSOP said "Success". Then i attempted to install second chip on bottom side, but xbox started fragging. I fixed up some shorts i found, but it still fragged. Then i measured according to datasheet, that power to RAM is shorted to ground. The shorted pins most likely were: 66 and 65. However it's possible, that i used the chip pinout wrongly and i measured short between VDD and VDDQ, which should be fine.
      Even after fixing the shorts, it still fragged. After (destructively, but fortunately without ripping any trace) removing the both installed chips, it still does very weird frag. Basically the LED lights up only for short while and then turns off. Xbox's fan runs for a while and then it reboots. This gets repeated indefinitely, but rarely you get normal FRAG and xbox stays on. I measured 2.65V going to the VDDQ pin and the RAM power rail or any of the main power rails are NOT shorted now.
      ANyone knows if i can fix it? All my other xboxes are either fragging (i have 1.0 i got fragging, but it might be TSOP issue as there are no signs of tracerot, no leaking caps and apparently TSOP might naturally degrade now, so i ordered modchip and will try to install it) or they are 1.6, which suck

      Here is reference image how i installed one of the chips, that worked well (the first one). I guess it was pretty good: Please login or register to see this link. . The residue is either flux or denaturated ethanol i used to clean it up.

      Hello everyone, my name is Vitalij and I am from latvia ! 
      I have two xbox v1.1 and v1.6  in 1.1 dump of something (red-green light), but fully working power supply and 1.6 working, but the mosfet burned out in the power supply.
      Is it possible to make a 1.1 to 1.6 PSU, can there be a complete manual or something? I found a guide showing how to make from 1.1 to 1.2-1.5, but as I understand it, this does not work for me.
      Could you please help with this?

      Hello all! I'm looking for some footage of Xbox Live recorded before the shutdown in 2010. All I can find on YouTube are a bunch of Halo 2 videos, some PGR2, and a tiny bit of SWBF2. If anyone has some stuff they're willing to share, please reply!
