Hello, my name is Kris and I wrote the Xbox repair guide 2.1 around 17 years ago. I have thought about updating it (my grammar was atrocious!) and wanted to get feedback from OG Xbox fans. On top of the grammar, I wanted to reshoot the videos and pictures to today's standards. I also saw the suggestion for a PDF version, so that's gonna go on the list. Any other suggestions? 

There's a lot I have missed since getting out of gaming so any help would be appreciated.

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

That's the one! You can also find it at http://www.rollmanit.com/xrg

I am going to first copy it over to a WordPress site, it was originally made using frontpage and then compiled into an exe format. I thought I lost the source files but found an old archive recently, which renewed my interest in it.

Awesome stuff!

always great to have authoritative compilations of knowledge! It certainly leads to less hunting around the web for bits of info.

if you’re feeling ambitious you could even document when misinformation has got spread about and help stamp it out with some nice citations!

(I’m guilty of a bit of that too, so eager to help and end up repeating bad info that I’ve heard)

thanks for your original version - and good luck with the update!

don’t forget the wayback machine for some of those citation links!

:)

      Hello, guys
      Today I updated my softmoded Xbox with Rocky5 softmod and xbmx4gamers ...everything was ok, until I started to download artwork downloader which is over 600 mb and placed it in E:
      In the same time I uploaded a game with size of 4gb by mistake in E: again instead of F:
      So, now the xbox starts green animation and flashes like to start the dashboard, but continue on black screen.
      My only suggestion is that I consumed the entire E: and on that drive  is the xbmc4gamers folder, too....I dont know, but if the dashboard need some space on start maybe that cause the black screen...any ideas to help???
      Also, is it possible to connect the hdd to a pc and xplorer360 app to erace that game from E: and to make some space on that drive???
      Any help is welcome!
      Thank you in advance!!!

      Hey so I have a 1.0 and the main fan header isn't working. Can I just replace the mosfet or is there a greater issue?
