Hi All,

Thank you for creating a fine forum.  I had the original xbox when it was new-ish, but I traded it and all my games to gamestop for 2 360 games.  bum deal.  Anyway, I have an xbox again along with many other consoles from my youth.  The hdd sounds like it's from a 20 year old computer(which it kind of is) and the optical drive is on its way out.  I'm glad to find these are taken care with relatively painless software type mods on the Xbox.  

I did the Rocky5 softmod and then I did the hexen disc to EvoX 8+, but I'm having two issues that don't seem common.

1. after the tsop flash, the .wav sound files have disappeared I can't seem to add them back with the hexen disc or the Rocky5 extras disc.  

2. I'm having issues with ftp programs not liking the directory structure and I can't drill down or transfer, only just connect

I have a 1.0 xbox and I flashed the 256kb version of evox.  Can I redo all of this with a bigger version and just start over?  I'm not sure what went wrong or which forum that can help with this.

Hello Madnessunc

Welcome to ogxbox.com

I would flash the X2-5035 bios to the Version 1.0-1.1

When you say the wav file's do you mean the start up sounds?

What size HDD have you fitted?

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

Thank you for the reply.  So I can safely "re-flash" to the x2 5035?  Just re-do the process like I did it the first time?  

I still have the stock hdd in at this point.  I have ordered the parts for an upgrade, but have not done it yet.  I also wanted to get a grasp on using the features I ultimately want to use with the new disk prior to installing it.  But I was thinking a 2tb as they are the same price as a 1tb seemingly.  

The .wav files I'm missing are the dash soundfx(moving the menu options around, pressing A, etc).  I was able to get the "Audio" directories back on, but they are empty.  Obviously not a huge a deal.  Thanks for your help.

So I reflashed and I got stuck on the boot splash screen.  Like a good forum user, I checked to see if anyone had this problem before.  Of course yes they did.  It looks like it was fighting with the softmod I never cleaned up.  so I did 3.5.2 on the hexen disc and it booted fine.  Not only that, but all my previous issue are gone(xbox related anyway).  The soundfx are present and I can ftp just fine.  I'm guessing this was my issue before, but I'm surprised the evox flash went to the dash anyway.  I'm glad I had this issue because now I have the cooler 512mb flash.

Thank you for the assist SS_Dave and also Thanks Cian Cunningham for humoring me on fb.

      Just plugged in the power cord and something in the power supply literally went "pop". Think it's a Delta 1.4 power supply.
      Is it worth buying a replacement or is the whole console likely toast? Saw a small flash through the right side vent where the PSU sit. Have another delta power supply lying around but think it's from a 1.6 so figure it's risky to put it in.
      Any ideas?
      Edit: Discovered a burnt screw sitting in the middle of it. Must've just been a loose screw floating around that dropped in and killed it.

      For the last year or two I've been working on reversing some of the data structures that have been left unresearched or incomplete by the old scene, not to such a hardcore degree as I would honestly like but off and on when I have the time. This spans from what most people have seen me put out like the Xbox LIVE account stuff but I also have an interest in FATX16/32 structuring, the various configuration/datastore sectors at the beginning of the Xbox hard drive, the 1BL/FBL/2BL/BIOS image structures and data packing, XBE header/certificate data, security, and structuring, and the EEPROM data and structuring - the fundamental data types that make up the Xbox
      Today I completed the EEPROM data structure - well I say "completed" but there are still some things like flags, bitpacking, and a single unlabeled 16bit value to truly finish up all the info on the data handling side of things - however, structurally I have mapped out all the EEPROM data including the notorious hardware section as well as reversing the XConfigChecksum into something much more legible, portable, and simply more correct than what's been sitting on the XboxLinux/XboxDev wiki's for the last decade and a half 
      I didn't really feel posting something like this on Reddit would be the way to go, the constant Twitter-feed like nature of threads just buries information and I have always preferred forums for their organization - and besides, forums are where I started in modding and forums are what I ran/helped run for many years of my modding life
      Anyway to my point, if you're interested in the structure and/or (partial for now) handling of EEPROM data then I've posted all the info on my GitHub project. This information can be used to parse, edit, or build an EEPROM image from scratch for any revision of the Xbox (including 1.6 and 1.6b models). I'll likely make a tool for people to create/edit EEPROM images at some point but I've got a couple Xbox projects I've been working on for a while and would like to finish at least one of those before starting another and I'll stuff all this structuring information into a table on the project page soon or maybe edit the XboxDev wiki so it's easier for non-programming people to view and understand at a glance
      Thanks for reading (also, posting this in the general forum wasn't my first choice but this doesn't really fit into the topic of homebrew - it's more so R&D)
      This paragraph has nothing to do with the subject of my post but I just wanted to say something personal here. I post this kind of information and put out these various tools and answer these questions that most people don't have an answer to for the sole purpose of bettering or further educating and simply just passing on information I know to the few left in original Xbox scene and even though I might come off as such it's never really been an ego or "clout" thing for me with the original Xbox, I've owned an original Xbox since 2001 and it's purely a passion thing. All I'm really after with this hobby of research and modding of the Xbox is to leave the scene with correct information or at least as correct as I'm able to comprehend and express to others, which I'm sure the old members of the early scene tried to do as well. The reason the original Xbox still lives on is because of sites like this and the handful of people that still hold onto their interest of the original Xbox or their passion of tinkering. Some of you may know my username and others may not, I've seen people mention me as this sort of Xbox "guru" or "expert" and I don't know if I come across as such but I can say, there are many things I don't know, many things I feel I'll never know, and a lot of times I feel like I barely know anything but I know objectively this isn't entirely true because there's a lot I know about the Xbox (and Xbox 360 for that matter) and yet it doesn't stop me from feeling dumb much of the time. Everything I know about computers, the Xbox/Xbox 360, data, structuring, programming, etc. is all self-taught and if you want to learn the type of stuff I know then you absolutely can teach yourself these things and it doesn't necessarily need to be on the software side of things, if you want to know hardware then you can teach yourself that as well - push yourself to learn, you are your best teacher. If you're part of the Xbox scene, whether you're a complete noob or have been around forever, whether we've had good/bad interactions in the past or maybe in the future, know that I appreciate you regardless of your knowledge or "status" and know that I hold no negative feelings towards anyone left in this scene and I probably never will. Not entirely sure why I just wrote this rant but hopefully no one minds, I'm just glad I'm not alone in this hobby of playing around with a 20 year old outdated machine

      I wanted to upgrade RAM on my Xbox. First I TSOPed Cromwell inside and it booted. Then I soldered 4 RAM chips from China and Xbox started reboots and showed errors: Green, Green, Green50%-Red50%. After which I desoldered new RAM, but FRAG was still there.
      I guessed something was wrong with TSOP chip. When I got this Xbox it had some noname modchip from 2003 which I can't even guess clone what of. Anyway, error code switched to: Green, Green, Orange50%-Red50%. Which is RAM error, I guess.
      Now I think I should have tested it with each new RAM chip soldered.
      I only left original 4 RAM chips inside right now, but it still FRAGs.
      What can I do to repair it?
