Need help identifying modchip - Which chip is this? - What to do?


Recommended Posts

Hello Together,
I bought an xbox today and planned to do a softmod.
When opening the console to remove the clock capacitor, I noticed that a modchip is already installed.
Unfortunately, I can't find any information about this chip. 
Can you help me further?

Can I just ignore the chip or should I pay attention to something?

Is it possible to simply install a SoftMod !

 

Thank you for your help !

Thanks for the quick reply! 
The Xbox boots into the original dashboard and there are no logos or other signs of a modification. Is this normal for this type of mod, or do I need to pay attention to something?
And one last question:
What exactly does this modificaton. What functions does this chip offer?
Thanks for your help!

Hold the power button down for several seconds and see if it behaves differently. 
The chip itself doesn't do anything other than allow a custom bios to boot. This is what circumvents all the protections and allows you to play homebrew and emulators.

Your advice worked, thank you! When I hold down the power button, the Xbox boots into XBMC. 
What is the best way to bring the Xbox up to date from here? (I have already successfully removed the clock capacitor. )

Is it necessary to update the software / bios? According to XBMC the BIOS: Xecuter 2 4977 is installed.
I have already downloaded the OGXBox Installer 2021 disc, but I am unsure how best to proceed.

Thank you for your help!

      So I recently learned a valuable lesson about TSOP flashing when I flashed my 1.0 with iND-BiOS.Beta.Feb-11-05.67.bfm.bin rather than the non-BFM version of the bios. I was wondering what the practical purpose of the BFM (Boot from Media) bios is, and how one would even use it?
      I'm assuming it is a BIOS that something can load AFTER the Xbox as already booted and initialized all hardware?

      I have a Jet Set Radio Future save that I have played around 25 hours in that I would like to be able to play on my console, but I haven't been able to figure out how to resign the save. The save has an "error reading JSRF save data" and doesn't let me use my save. The save originated in Cxbx-R and it won't allow me to move the save to or from the console without this error occurring. Not sure how to proceed from here, and would be grateful if anyone wanted to help me out. I have attached the save if that can help, thanks for your time.

      I have a Samsung SDG-605 and need to tweak the pots for laser as it's having difficulty reading. Have snapped a pic and wondering if anyone knows which is for the CD laser and which is the DVD one?
      I didn't want to have to keep taking drive out to tweak them individually and test and nauseum!
      Thanks.
