Aladdin XS modchip, cant load hexen from the first try


Recommended Posts

First of all, thank you dear community for the oportunity to be a part of something good!

I have a strange problem, have xbox 1.4 with aladdin XS MODCHIP, an older modchip ,but nonetheless it is working,

As i want to upgrade to larger HDD, i pot-ed thomson drive, because it was failing, i put the 80 gb hdd, but i get error 13 and/or 16, 

the problem is that hexen or slayers cant read dvd from the first try,and always it can read from the second,third,etc.Also reads backups and reads hexen and slayers from retail HDD.

Orange light is ok,evox sign is in the left-upper corner,it tries to read dvd hexen,but gets me to error 13 or 16 (this is only when i put blank HDD instead of the retail one)?

DVD TRIES TO SPIN 2-3 TIMES, BUT NO BOOT TO HEXEN OR SLAYERS DISC,THEN ERRORS FOR MISSSING DASHBOARD

Is there any solution to this?would appreciate very much,i could provide any information needed, THANKS IN ADVANCE

Try a different DVD drive and also when you burn your install disk use a brand name blank DVD-r and write the disk as slow as possible

I use verbatim DVD-r discs with really good success  but some DVD drives just will not work with any non original disk.

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

Will try that,thank you SS_Dave, its funny when in modchip mode( orange solid light ), and retail 8 GB HDD, SLAYERS OR HEXEN boots right away (with the dvd in the drive), but when i put fresh ata HDD, the dvd doesnt get to boot, like it needs the DASHBOARD TO BOOT FROM DVD, AND THEN I GET ERROR 16,EVEN IF IM IN MODCHIP MODE.

Additional info from slayers disc, if it is worth for anything:

BIOS : M8 plus Official .06

KERNEL: 1.00.5838.01

EvolutionX V+3935

Thank you

If you can get it to boot from a install disk then I would suggest you reflash the modchip with either a Ind5004.67 or a EvoxM8plus.67 bios file.

Both will support 2tb hard drives and should not give a error 16 message.

Also have a look at the OGXbox install disk.

      For the last year or two I've been working on reversing some of the data structures that have been left unresearched or incomplete by the old scene, not to such a hardcore degree as I would honestly like but off and on when I have the time. This spans from what most people have seen me put out like the Xbox LIVE account stuff but I also have an interest in FATX16/32 structuring, the various configuration/datastore sectors at the beginning of the Xbox hard drive, the 1BL/FBL/2BL/BIOS image structures and data packing, XBE header/certificate data, security, and structuring, and the EEPROM data and structuring - the fundamental data types that make up the Xbox
      Today I completed the EEPROM data structure - well I say "completed" but there are still some things like flags, bitpacking, and a single unlabeled 16bit value to truly finish up all the info on the data handling side of things - however, structurally I have mapped out all the EEPROM data including the notorious hardware section as well as reversing the XConfigChecksum into something much more legible, portable, and simply more correct than what's been sitting on the XboxLinux/XboxDev wiki's for the last decade and a half 
      I didn't really feel posting something like this on Reddit would be the way to go, the constant Twitter-feed like nature of threads just buries information and I have always preferred forums for their organization - and besides, forums are where I started in modding and forums are what I ran/helped run for many years of my modding life
      Anyway to my point, if you're interested in the structure and/or (partial for now) handling of EEPROM data then I've posted all the info on my GitHub project. This information can be used to parse, edit, or build an EEPROM image from scratch for any revision of the Xbox (including 1.6 and 1.6b models). I'll likely make a tool for people to create/edit EEPROM images at some point but I've got a couple Xbox projects I've been working on for a while and would like to finish at least one of those before starting another and I'll stuff all this structuring information into a table on the project page soon or maybe edit the XboxDev wiki so it's easier for non-programming people to view and understand at a glance
      Thanks for reading (also, posting this in the general forum wasn't my first choice but this doesn't really fit into the topic of homebrew - it's more so R&D)
       
       
      This paragraph has nothing to do with the subject of my post but I just wanted to say something personal here. I post this kind of information and put out these various tools and answer these questions that most people don't have an answer to for the sole purpose of bettering or further educating and simply just passing on information I know to the few left in original Xbox scene and even though I might come off as such it's never really been an ego or "clout" thing for me with the original Xbox, I've owned an original Xbox since 2001 and it's purely a passion thing. All I'm really after with this hobby of research and modding of the Xbox is to leave the scene with correct information or at least as correct as I'm able to comprehend and express to others, which I'm sure the old members of the early scene tried to do as well. The reason the original Xbox still lives on is because of sites like this and the handful of people that still hold onto their interest of the original Xbox or their passion of tinkering. Some of you may know my username and others may not, I've seen people mention me as this sort of Xbox "guru" or "expert" and I don't know if I come across as such but I can say, there are many things I don't know, many things I feel I'll never know, and a lot of times I feel like I barely know anything but I know objectively this isn't entirely true because there's a lot I know about the Xbox (and Xbox 360 for that matter) and yet it doesn't stop me from feeling dumb much of the time. Everything I know about computers, the Xbox/Xbox 360, data, structuring, programming, etc. is all self-taught and if you want to learn the type of stuff I know then you absolutely can teach yourself these things and it doesn't necessarily need to be on the software side of things, if you want to know hardware then you can teach yourself that as well - push yourself to learn, you are your best teacher. If you're part of the Xbox scene, whether you're a complete noob or have been around forever, whether we've had good/bad interactions in the past or maybe in the future, know that I appreciate you regardless of your knowledge or "status" and know that I hold no negative feelings towards anyone left in this scene and I probably never will. Not entirely sure why I just wrote this rant but hopefully no one minds, I'm just glad I'm not alone in this hobby of playing around with a 20 year old outdated machine

      Hi All, 
      New member here, first post. I've had an OG Xbox for quite a while but sadly it was collecting dust until recently, it was cleaned up and I got the itch to play a few games.  I think it has a modchip but that's up for debate, partly why I'm here and what my next post will be.
      Well hello from CT and hopefully I can contribute outside of just leeching some answers.
      Thanks

      hello all, been playing xbox since it came out and still think it is an awesome console.
      been a member of the fb group for a while but haven't gotten around to getting on here until now.
      I am selling my gaming collection and have a whole stack of games, controllers, and consoles that need to stop collecting dust in my house. I am getting ready to move and I am sure we all know how heavy the darn console is.
      Anyways, I will post a thread with all of what I got once I get validated and all that. Glad this forum exists!
