i ordered a few things for my 2 modded xboxs


Recommended Posts

UPDATE: i got the stuff in the mail yesterday. the ide cables are the exact length of the oem cable and look great. they would especially look good in a clear or translucent case. i haven't tried them yet(i intend to soon) so i don't know about their performance. the new feet are made of a flexible plastic so they won't have the anti-slip properties of the rubber feet. they also have no adhesive on them so u will have to supply your own.  the controller to usb adapter is a VERY snug fit in the controller. it works but it will be very hard to remove. i tried removing it with needle nose pliers but stopped trying because i was afraid i would damage something. i'll try to give an update on the ide cables when i install one. they appear to be the perfect replacement. if u have any questions then please feel free to ask.

Here is how my eBay 80way IDE cables look and notice the 4 pin power connector now has the wires exiting downward from the chinse Sata2Ide with a 3D printed insulator.

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

UPDATE 2: i just installed the new ide cable and it works perfectly. highly recommended. it is identical in length to the oem cable.

hey dave. i was actually thinking about tagging u in one of my updates. i highly recommend these chimeric ide 80-pin cables. i stretched it out beside a stock ide cable and it was identical in length and spacing of the connecters. i also think the dark gray color looks better. it seems to have good flexibility too. the new feet and memory card port-to-usb controller adapter work very well too.

      Easy-Build for XBOX Original
      What is it?
      A tool in testing for compiling xbox code. Easy to Update script.
      https://github.com/Empyreal96/easy-build-xbox

      How to use:
      Have easy-build-xinit.cmd on the ROOT of a drive e.g: D:\easy-build-xinit.cmd Open easy-build-xinit.cmd Setup the Xbox trunk in your Drive root as specified in easy-build-xinit (VHD users are already set up) Let the script apply Team Complex patches (These allow the xbox trunk to be built) Once that's done, follow onscreen instructions until Razzle loads Type into razzle: easybuild You can now build from the Easy-Build mainmenu Built binaries will be in %DriveRoot%\xbox\xboxbuilds\fre{dump} Any issues or suggestions please open an issue ticket so I can look into it
      Information
       
      Windows XP - 10 x86
      Fixed issues with mstools/idw folders incorrectly being set
      Basic Options for compiling
      'Unofficial' binplace script 'xcopybins.cmd' to place some built files
      Added 'xmakesamples.cmd' which builds the XDK Sample CD.
      Added a WIP script to set off the XDK build see XDK below Fixed %_BUILDVER% not being set on razzle-easybuild handover Changed menu colours (I may change back depending on feedback) Small update to some 'dirs' files that adds folders to the build process that can build successfully Separated easybuild.cmd (mainmenu) to public/tools/ Actual easybuild.cmd shows correct Razzle Tool Path now, starts xcopybins.cmd as postbuild XDK Building 
      InstallShield Professional 6.2 is required for this: I have included my currently in progress script to try and build the Xbox SDK. Currently it fails compiling the InstallShield specific XDK Setup scripts..
      To run the script, load Easy-Build, drop to Razzle prompt and type "private\SDK\setup\xsdkbuild.cmd" If you want to help the development of Easy-Build, have some issues join the Matrix chat!
      https://matrix.to/#/!febkSwamiedCsfevDe:matrix.org?via=matrix.org
      NOTE: This is VERY early stages.. It is lacking in many features that Easy-Build-NT5 has.. If I get time I will eventually figure out more of the build system, any and all help is greatly welcomed!!

      I have a PAL Xbox, and I need to switch the region. If anyone in the US or maybe Canada could help me out here that would be great. Just trying to avoid the overpriced ebay shipping from the UK.

      I put together a package with all the software needed. I also included the SVF file generated by ISE's impact. This is now the easiest method for programming OpenXenium's CPLD chip. After setup, it's just one click. Merry Christmas and enjoy!
