Aladdin Advance Question

Recommended Posts

Hi there!

Got a crystal Xbox for my son and it was already modded with the Aladdin advance chip. As this was done in 2005 it’s soldered in such a way that you can change boot from chip to onboard. This is causing problems when using a HDD without ms dashboard installed. 
 

My question is if I can desolder the extra wires on the picture and ground the bt as well as shorting the Lframe like you would with a new plus install?

Disconnect the 2 wires (BT and L1) the front of the PCB and leave the D0 wire alone then ground the BT on the mod chip

The linking BT to ground makes the chip always active.

Soft modding is like masturbating, It get's the job done but it's nothing like the real thing.

You don't need to do anything with D0 leave it as is (LFRAME).

Disconnect the wire from the BT pad on the modchip as well as the other end by the front panel connector.  Add a new short wire to connect the BT pad on the modchip to ground (pin 2) of the quick solder section - the pad closest to the LCD contrast potentiometer.spacer.png

The modchip you have supports connection to an character-based LCD module. 

It uses the Lattice LC4064V CPLD (Complex Programmable Logic Device) instead of the LC4032V CPLD which has half the programmable macrocells - 32 vs 64.

      Hey Everyone,
      I used to have the official xbox component cable, but like a fool didn't understand their value until now. I just recently got back into xbox, purchased a system I'm working on repairing and modding, and I was able to locate a advance high definition AV pack with the component connections. just curious, is the breakout box better than the cable? or about they the same?
       
      Thanks!

      Hi all,
      I'm talking about 1 of the 2 XBOXes I bought used. I am in the process of cleaning them as best as possible. One was sold as modded and is clearly modchipped/TSOPed, as it displays "Xecuter2" on boot just by pressing the power button once.
      So I disassembled the other one, sold without any mention about modchip. Because I didn't know it was modchipped I was going to clean dust and remove clock capacitor but when I tore it apart I did see this chip installed on board:

      After a good cleaning and putting it back I tried to power it on by pushing power button for 2-3 seconds and I get a bootscreen with "Xecuter2" mark instead of "Microsoft", but I have the same (stock) dashboard as before.
      I did read that before removing the clock capacitor, having a modchip installed, I must use a suitable (kinda new) BIOS in order to avoid "clock loop" problem.
      Now that I'm there, what can I do to update this modchip? I have TruHexen2019 dvd iso downloaded from somewhere, if could be useful.
      I'm kinda familiar with tweaking things in general, as well as other consoles, but I'm just a noob about Xbox modding, so please be kind and patient
