What Version XBox?

Recommended Posts

I just received an Xbox I bought from eBay really cheap which I was planning to use as spares.

ive just cracked it open, and wow. So clean. Hardly any dust, no pitting of steel, Capacitor leaks (I’ll still remove clock anyways).

i May even switch my main drive etc over to this one and softmod it

Is this a 1.2? Date on sticker says 2003-08-15.

Shame it’s a Thompson drive, but it still works.

If this chip has Focus printed on it then it's a version 1.4 



The version 1.2 -1.4 of Xbox is slightly easier to TSOP flash as the 2 solder links are located  on the to side of the PCB circled in yellow.


With the version 1.2 -1.4 board I would use the IND 5004.67.bin BIOS as it's a 256kb TSOP chip and the BIOS is one that will support  a 2tb hard drive.

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

Or the elusive 1.5.

Although the date of manufacturing would be within the 1.5 version release. I thought there was no way to visually tell if one is a 1.5

arent they rare?

      Quick question I am finding difficult to search online.
      Like most, I mainly play games directly from the hard drive, but do occasionally like to play my games on disc. I am wondering if there is an application out there that gives you the option of disabling the dvd drive on startup?
      I want to keep my dvd drive alive for as long as possible, and I cringe everytime I boot the Xbox and the laser searches for a disc that isn't there. It seems I am just degrading the lifetime of the drive that way. If I can disable the drive when I am not using it, I bet I would be able to squeeze more life out of it.
