Not able to browse to config.xml to find the FTP credentials. Any suggestions?


Recommended Posts

New to the forum and to the topic in general.

The console was given to me by a friend, it comes loaded with some version of Unleash X. I have been trying to connect via FTP to load more games (DVD reader is broken). 

Sadly i don't know the credentials and not finding any way inside the dashboard to go to the config.xml file to get them.

I read about FATXplorer so I guess that if I don't find any alternative from inside. I can always just plug in and look for the file on my PC but I will like to avoid buying all the adapters just for a one time use.

Couple of pics from the menus that I can access (In Spanish lol)

Looking at the free space on F drive (873.23mb) I would say it has a stock hard drive(10gb) or it's full and you might be able to put some homebrew games on it .

Open the File Manager (It should be either in "System" or in the root directory (depends where ppl. have put it...)). search for : "config.xml" in the UnleashX folder and click on it. The build in texteditor will open and you can edit the file.

Or go to system (Some times called admin) -> settings -> network settings.

Option 3. In case you have an unlocked SATA HDD (or you PC still has an IDE port, if an IDE HDD is in there) You can use "FATXplorer Beta 3" and edit the config file on you PC.  But again, your HDD has to be unlocked for that.

Jeez that's a weird old set up - never seen anything like that.

Default UnleashX blue skin home screen but a customised Xboy Adavance file manager - odd. How do you get a customised UnleashX file manager skin with the default UnleashX skin? The whole point of the default skin is that it defaults everything as a safety net for any skin related problems.

And what is that ************ under DVD on the System (Utilidades) sub-menu?

Grabar means Record in Spanish so I'm guessing that is the Disc Copy utility UnleashX often includes. That also suggests it is just the bottom half of the UnleashX System > Settings menu we're seeing too. In which case the Network settings  information is probably there, just higher up the menu, possibly: Configuracion de red.

Its that Xboy Advanced file manager screen that has me perplexed; it suggest the Xbox might be hardmodded although it could just be a very old softmod which put everything on C:\. But four XBEs - that's unusual. Evoxdash.xbe likely the UnleashX main dash, xboxdash.xbe should be the original MS dash unless it is a softmod which, if it is, means it is more likely the "original.xbe" would be the MS dash. That leaves the modxboxdash.xbe which I won't even guess at.

So that's a Xboy Advance emulator 'file manager' or a C:\ drive display available via the emulator.

That raises the question: why?

It would perhaps have been more helpful to see the UnleashX's file manager C and E drive content screens than use an emulator for whatever reason. The UnleashX file manager (Administrador de archivos?) must surely be available in the main menu below Utilitades.

Hi thanks to all for your replies. So here is were I am at, due to the fact that looks nearly imposible to find the ftp information.

I got my self an USB adapter to plug the HDD to my PC.

https://ibb.co/ZfRSmJY

I did that and tried to open it with FATXplorer but it doesn't find the HDD. I read that it may be because is locked... So I don't know how to proceed from here.

https://ibb.co/TWL9vGW

Any suggestions?

 

And again thanks a lot!!

That is correct it's just from the room file explorator from the Xboy Advance emulator. 

This Unleash X version doesn't have a file manager for reasons that I can only theorize. I guess that the person who mounted this was someone from a shop and they wanted to keep the customer with them so they locked every possibility for the client itself or someone else to access the console and modify it.

I guess that I should had read this before. I think that the HDD is locked.

It is a old weird setup. That ****** takes me to this https://ibb.co/1vGvMgG Asked in reddit and someone told me to try  "A Y B X" No luck.. LOL

Grabar or Record doesn't do anything. There is no "Network settings" from this dashboard. I can go to the original dashboard and then go to settings and there I can find a "Network settings" option but when I click on it it just takes me back to the Unleash X home dashboard. Definetly this is the work of a genius!! Hahaha

Let's keep it simple then. Load my installer (DHCP or Static IP what ever is better for you (Depends on how you have connectet your XBox)) and tranfere the files you need that way.

https://1fichier.com/dir/mX1kipIz

You could also replace the Dashboard and after that make a FTP connection without the Installer.

For that just launch the File Explorer from the "live apps menu" go to the folder "DefaultFiles" in there is a folder "e" -> "Dash". From there copy the folder "UnleashX" to your XBox in the folder of your UnleashX Dashboard. Maybe Rename your UnleashX to UnleashX-ORIGINAL and copy the new one to the same driectory of your old so that the new will boot on power on. After that it should be like a walk in the park.

If I had an xbox like this I would first try to clean the laser eye on the DVD drive to get it to read (search for guides). Try just cleaning with q tip and alcohol.  You may see info about pot tweaking- just know not all drives benefit from this and already maxed (adjustment may damage laser). I'd first test the drive with an official game or legit DVD, if that works burn one of the tools disc referenced above.

Second option is to unlock the drive over it's com port. If you happen to have an FTDI FT232 adapter laying around you(common if you do things with arduinos). Use my method of unlocking and relocking the drive to access the files. https://docs.google.com/document/d/1X9YJdMUA1vZKSTEyvfA2OhaHScy0f6wzLk0nE7q9vLw/edit?usp=sharing

Third option is to hotswap the drive when it is an unlocked state. Then you'll have access through FATXplorer. Something like this 

 

Otherwise if you're forced to buy something, I'd go with a modchip https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B07GWQXP62/ref=ppx_yo_dt_b_search_asin_title?ie=UTF8&psc=1. Install along with a new HDD built with Xboxhdmusb.

The previous owner or modder must have removed the menu option from config.xml to access UnleashX's file manager.

<Menu>

...

<Item Action="FileManager">File Explorer</Item>

</Menu>

      A while ago I removed the clock capacitor from an Xbox v.1.1.
      Some days ago came the new capacitor I had ordered and I got to install it. Now, since I'm a complete amateur on the soldering thing, I may have damaged the capacitor or the mb, or the soldering job I did isn't good enough, BUT, how long is the date/time expected to last with a same rating capacitor? I never actually used a new Xbox and I don't know.
       
      My first results show that I must have messed up the installation. As far as I can tell I put it in the same place where I removed the old one (there was a leftover capacitor leg in one of the holes) and I used the correct polarity (the negative of the capacitor to the white side of the board's schematic). The capacitor I used is the one in the picture below.
      Thank you!

      Listing of materials tested:
       
      OSSC Chimeric HDMI Konig component RGB AV optical Composite original  Pound (2020) Mcable gaming Mclassic Monster component x400      Monster component x200    variety of wall chargers and HDMI cables
      All the combinations and configurations were tested.
      Tested on four TV and two Xbox : V 1.6 no modded,  V1.0 XBMC  ( no one did consequential differences ) 
       
      Winner!
      xbox+chimeric+Mclassic mode green (alimented wall) +Mcable gaming (alimented wall)+TV.
       

       
      Explanation
       
      At the begening, the monster component x400 seem perfect.    https://postimg.cc/d7rGj7PT       
      It was better than konig component. 
      The konig get a good quantity of details but not like the monster x400 .
      And his picture is  faded. There is a significant loss of signal.
      The monster x200  was like composite because the three plugs are video x1 and stereo x2. Not three RGB + optical audio like I had thinking.
      Next, I tested all options of the OSSC expecting upgrade my video with a HDMI solution.
      The picture was worst than the monster. 
      The OSSC loose always a part of the signal, event it was alimented, and it work not compatible for this console.
      The pound (with power usb port) was very poor. Yes, it's very better than composite but:  Green filter. Not very clear etc. 
       

      But it's wasn't a problem because I had bet all on the Chimeric.

      Finaly, I recived the chimeric, and horror, the monster component smashes far more once again ,                                                                                                                                                with is colors very realistic and the picture very compatible with the signal source.                                                                                                                                                                           I pluged the mcable and the mclassic, but this changed nothing.   https://postimg.cc/VJKNfHvJ
       
      I thinking pass all my life with monster x400.

      After to have expected an issus of fabrication, I Shipped an message to Chimeric system.                                                                                                                                                         Before to receive a response, I had set up the stuff again, and this is it.  It work fine.                                                                                                                                                            Mclassic was alimented by the pc port, but we need to put it in the wall.                                                                                                                                                                                        We need to find the perfect TV setting too, because the signal is different for PC, RGB etc.                                                                                                                                                           So the best mode need to be (neutral, desatured, wider spectrum, all spectrum of light and colors).
      Now it is better than the monster component.  
      And better than the chimeric only. The stuff do all that it must to do.
      But, after that, I upgraded the output video another time with an astuce.
      I bought some different wall charger more powerful and the video become consequently much higher.
      Now with the good wall charger,
      It's a masterpiece.


      How setting this Winning combination

      Xbox dashboard- Audio : put dolby souround + DTS ( not Dolby digital)
      Mclassic: Mode green( or off). Alimented by wall charger  5v- 1.8 A.  Little bit hight or less.  
      Mcable Gaming: Wall charger 5v -2.4 A
      Tv(Flat): Here my setting like exemple : Cinema , retro éclairage 100, contraste 100,  brillance 63, couleur 50, nuance  +10,                                                                                                               netteté 100, image IA=EF, C.A.T.S=HF , reduc=HF, reduc MPEG=HF, niveau noir=clair.   
      In full screen, on tv 1080p or +, and with this stuff, If the picture is bigger than the window,                                                                                                                                                        to reduce It will do appear more elements in the window but not downgrade the details and the beauty.                                                                                                                               That will generate the details in less pixels, but in number sufficient.
      Other point: More definition your monitor have, more sharp and natural are the edges of all things.   ( Picture 1 to 3) https://postimg.cc/py77F2fG
      But a cheap tv Ultra HD will make the edge wavy.  ( Picture 3 and 4 are with the same poor ultra  HD TV.)
      Boost the signal with good wall charger upgrade the ambiance because the gamma have a better tonality.                                                                                                                              And do that upgrade really the textures too because halo 2 uses an optical illusion of 3d texture. So it's like if surfaces are more detailled.                                                                         And it's like if previous non-existent textures appeared ( metalic, glass).  
       
      Materials description:
      V1,6 Xbox: With hdmi solution, added vertical lines shadow (in the white sky) with halo 2 , but nothing else. It seem to have fast processing capacity. Fable is identical with the two consoles. 
      V1.0 Xbox (XBMC installed): Added horizontal artefacts with all the games and emulators. The picture was identical or less good.  ( But no lines shadow with halo 2)
      POUND (  Second place If with the same settings and stuff ).  Don't have DTS option. Clarity of detail less good than component and chimeric. Green filter.  https://postimg.cc/jWwJ303j
      CHIMERIC: Apply red filter on the Panasonic TC-L32U3 but the color was perfect with the second Pansonic. I corrected it with the settings. Alone, there is no big video differences with the Pound (considering the red filter on the other TV) but give more potential with the extra stuff. Chimeric can do DTS  audio option. 
      MONSTER COMPONENT x400 : Do the best picture and sound for easy and for the cost.  https://postimg.cc/d7rGj7PT   https://postimg.cc/McZcFHnk
      KONIG:  AV +optical + RGB + composite in one.   RGB exemple :  https://postimg.cc/FkFjfQY9    https://postimg.cc/xq7CN2Jt   
      V1.6 OSSC :  With all the settings, x1 and x2 scanline too, and two TV, the signal  loose a part of the intensity. The OSSC was alimented wall but only for the LCD screen I think, no to boost the signal. (Signal is affected in the normal processus of all adaptators).  The picture was pale and bleach. Next,  in X1, there was no difference compared  good component except the precedent problem. Problem 3 : In x2, the game is pixelised like 2D 1987 games. Problem 4: About audio; There is not input hdmi, it need an adaptator for the two cables stereo before plug in,  and there is no alimentation for boost the signal affected by this new stuff, and nothing for boost the signal if we connect the audio directly to the speaker ( using an adaptator too). And it's perhaps not 5.1 dolby sourround or DTS. 
      MCLASSIC : The leds set the format of the resolution, not the quantity of pixels. Mode blue it's for an old square tv and mode green for a larger format. The mode off is like the green. I did not see the visual difference, the pixels are exactly  the same at the same place with the same flashing artefacts . But it's perhaps for another king of  tv or another king of console. After that, it need a good wall charger.  Yes, the pixel shapes are attenuated.
      MCABLE GAMING. The not exspensive and not specialised cable '' Premium hight speed /HEC HDMI '' do the stone and building more realistic than the Mcable because it don't blur a part of the texture. At the same time, the Mcable gaming do the best shiny and polished textures, electric arc, water. It reduce the pixelisation of the game . But if we like the realistic stone and dislike to see psycadelic effects when some thin lines are near each others,  it is an option. Finaly, the Mcable is better than all these kinds of cables because it have the capacity to involve the totality of the signal  and upgrade all lights ambiance, textures, metalic or shiny effects. And is hight quality give the better definition. With a computer, the Mcable show more details than the HEC HDMI, but the xbox have not enough definition for did a difference at this point.  
      TV : The winner was : Panasonic TC-L32U3.  Second place : Panasonic TC-L32X5. The very poor others are : LG 47LN5750, SAMSUNG UN50TU7000F.
       

      Finaly, the https://makemhz.com/  is perhaps better than the chimeric so I will change the chimeric for it and keep all the settings and materials in this set up.

      Got a 1.6 crystal in pretty great condition here with one serious problem - DVD drive (SDG-605) is dead, error 12.
      Tried swapping a known working DVD drive in and using exactly the same power+IDE cable+HDD it successfully boots to dash so it's definitely the SDG-605 causing the error.
      If anyone has any working DVD drives they are willing to part with, especially if they're in the UK, that would be great.
      Otherwise, it's going to be the eBay lottery, and I'm not feeling lucky. 🦖
