I have an old Xbox that has an Xecuter 2 chip installed, it still has the stock HDD so i'd like to upgrade it to a 500GB SATA. Weirdly I cannot physically see any chip soldered to the board, I can see some yellow wires going out the front of the console so i'm not sure if this is where the chip is located? (see pic).
In any case I have downloaded the HeXen 2018 installation disc, and I have the necessary parts required to convert from IDE to SATA. Is this disc capable of setting up a HDD with this chip? I took a couple of pics showing my kernel and the fact my current HDD is locked:
I have had a 200GG Seagate and X3 chip since it was released and recently I decided I wanted to try an SSD. I got a 2TB SSD Loaded it up made my way to getting the partitions setup with a split between F/G as 64k sectors and moved all files over. When I run my games however the save files are all unavailable. I'm figuring there is something to this but of everything I've found I've not found anything to address this. Also when I run burnout 3 I'm limited to like 30-40km/h. Just not sure what I"m missing with this.
I have a TSOP v1.0 that I decided to make a first attempt at a RAM upgrade using a hot air rework station. After adding the fourth chip I began having FRAG errors. After several re-flows and checking all the pins, I figured I got bad RAM chips. So I removed them all. AND STILL FRAG…
after a closer inspection, I noticed that one of the nearby SMD capacitors went missing. C5B3. Any chance someone know the value of this cap, or has a list? I’m not sure if you can measure an onboard cap.
