Open Xenium Lcd Causing Issues.


Recommended Posts

I built myself a few open xeniums mainly to run a LCD on my 1.0. Everything does work but I'm having a strange issue with xenium os holding the wallpaper I selected and taking a few extra seconds to load my c or e partition when adding my .bins after reboot. It doesn't do it when the LCD is connected. Is this just the cpld being bogged down? Also noticed sometimes the LCD goes blank when playing games or navigating the menus.

How big is your hard drive? 

If a larger HDD has been installed, what size are the F and/or G partitions? 

Is the DVD drive connected?

So are you saying it is slower with or without the LCD

 The X2 and iND bios's need to look at the HDD to read their respective configuration files and that adds a couple of seconds, I have found the EvoxM8plus to be the quickest especially when set  like this.

With the iND and the X2 bios you can speed the load time a fraction by disabling the boot animation.

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

Jesus. Okay clearly I forgot how to English in my original post. So in xenium os I'll select a wallpaper and when I reboot it reverts back to the stock wallpaper. When I go to select the wallpaper again I will have to select the wallpaper option, back out, reselect and then it will appear. The same thing happens when I am flashing bios to the banks. This doesn't seem to happen with my brothers 1.6 and only on my 1.0.

Let's go 1 step at  a time do you mean the Open Xenium background 

Like this screen?

When you change the backdrop is it the correct size and resolution.

This is from Ryzee119 github

Skins require a 640x480 jpg file named backdrop.jpg with an associated Skin.cfg.
Skin.cfg configures the colour of the text, and menu objects etc. These lines represent a six digit HEX colour value. The comments in this example are provided for clarity only and must be removed before attempting to load the skin in XeniumOS.

An example might look like this:

9abcde //Text Box - Text Colour
9abcde //Text Box - Background Colour
9abcde //Text Box - Border Colour 
9abcde //Text Box - Text Selection Highlight Colour
9abcde //Menus - Text Colour
9abcde //Menus - Text Selection Highlight Colour
9abcde //File Explorer - Background Colour
80     //Top Menu - X Position
153    //Top Menu - Y Position
300    //Top Menu - Width
256    //Top Menu - Height
8      //Top Menu - No. Items to Display

F takes up all the space G is not present.

      So after 19 years I pulled my v1.0 out blew the dust off of it. Turned it on things were not ok. Long story short clock cap pulled, damaged traces fixed. Fired it up and the Xenium logo comes up , some text in upper left that can’t be read lol then it just sits there and does nothing. Chip led is lit up red, used to be orange. Reset solderless pin mount and double checked D0 everything looks good....but again still stuck at boot up. Could use some input. Thanks in advance for patience as I’m sure this has come up before ..I couldn’t find it.

      I am really glad I found this forum website. Last year when I started modding most of the content I found online was so outdated. Somehow I missed this website.
      Are unopened and unmodded XBOXs becoming more and more rare? Well, I suppose I know the obvious answer to that question - yes. My real question is to the professional collectors. What is your opinion on breaking of the stickers on and opening up suspected rare XBOXs? Do you do it when you get one to inspect for dust and corrosion or is it more important to a collector to keep the stickers intact?
      Aside from obviously rare limited edition XBOXs what version(s) 1.0-1.6b are the most rare? One would think 1.0 XBOXs are the most valued and desirable. Are 1.0 XBOXs desirable to collectors? Are certain versions 1.0-1.6b becoming more desirable or rare than others?

      Hi, I am just wondering if anyone with more experience than me can tell me how bad this looks or about any diagnosis clues I can be aware of. The first XBOX I found on ebay last year was surprisingly not modded and I guessed it might be a 1.0. Because of that I didn't want to mod it or open it so I bought another cheap one that had already been opened. I had some fun with that one then I gave it away. In the meantime that 1.0 was calling my name and I bit the bullet and opened it up. Softmod went fine of course. HDD upgrade went fine. Then I wanted to try something more interesting. I looked up the RAM upgrade and it didn't look too bad. That actually went smooth. Luckily the 1.0 is the least work to short circuit the TSOP. So TSOP flash and 128MB RAM was working. I kind of surprised myself. I was fumbling around not really thinking through things and I wanted to see if I could flash an original BIOS back to it. That was the end of the fun for me. After the flash it reboots and goes into the blinking red. I realized the BIOS probably didn't like having 128MB RAM so I used my heat gut to remove my just added RAM. That wasn't it. I knew it I had a big project ahead of me. That was when I found the Open Xenium modchip that apparently is supposed to divert the boot to it's own BIOS. Hence my question in this forum. 
      I didn't see how I was going to remove all that solder from the LPC ports with a solder braid or any other way for that matter. I realized I might be able to use my heat gun again. I had some bad luck and didn't realize how hot I was getting my board in the process either. I almost lost 3 components all together but I managed to get 2 of them back on. I circled the remaining problems in my pictures below. Is any of this repairable? The Open Xenium chip makes it to a red LED but XBOX still only boots to the blinking red lights. I was pretty happy with my soldering of the wire but not so happy with my soldering of the LPC jumpers. The board took some damage. From what the pictures say is this beyond repair? If the Open Xenium chip is making it to a red LED am I close?
      Thanks all you smart folks!
