My wife says I have an addiction. I have too many and I will only keep TWO. I have many working xboxes - all tsop flashed and most with upgraded IDE drives / cables.
Not going to ask for a fortune. My hobby was mostly fixing and flashing all of these. I haven't touched many for a long time - but they work. I have extra cases, power supplies, controllers, games... LOTS.
I'm in Canada and would like to sell to Canada but would sell to the US. I will only charge for the shipping and about $5 extra to cover the cost of boxing them up safely. Email me at email@example.com - I live in central Canada (Moose Jaw, Saskatchewan) and yes... that is real. Just north of North Dakota. Send me an email and what you are looking for.
It has been a hobby.... time to move on - but I am probably going to always fix these!!
I installed Rocky5's Xbox Softmodding Tool v1.1.6 on both my v.12 and v1.6. The clock is set to autoset the time /date but it seems to be getting the wrong timezone, and I can't find where to change it. Could it be it needs a different SMTP IP address? I'm on GMT +0 (Lisbon, London).
I have a 2 modded xbox which have been sitting in a box for 10+ years - one is chipped (bought it this way and don't know the chip), and the other softmodded (I did it with the Bert & Ernie exploit 10+ years ago). I recently took them out and having a great time playing some old games on them.
So at a local yard sale I picked up a xbox for $5. I want to softmod it, but forgot all the details/instructions. I just ftp''ed into my softmodded and see I renamed the c:/fonts to c:/f0nts and in the original c:/fonts have the 2 bert and ernie files. From memory I think the xbe files on the root are the modded dashboard. So my question is, if I copy Bert and Ernie to the c:/fonts and copy all the files from my root to the new xbox, is that all I need?
Also, before the mod do I need to update the dash/kernel - does it matter? I don't plan to use any xbox live, so can I leave the kernel as-is?
Also, the way I softmodded my previous unit was by hotswapping using my chipped xbox. If I recall, I need to boot both, then unplug the ide cables from each and quickly plug the unmodded hdd to the chipped xbox - I then have access to the hdd files to add the files.
Any advice would be appreciated. Or if you have a link to an instruction page that would be great too (I searched google but nothing exists anymore).
