I made a few changes to HeXEn 2017 to... well, update some of it. There's certainly a lot more that could be done, but I didn't feel like it was necessary to go all-out on it, since the disc is primarily just used for TSOP/modchip flashing and building new HDDs. But with flashing in mind, there were some issues that should have been addressed, which were 1) editing the EvoX M8+ BIOS files to disable the need for a DVD drive on boot up (because it makes no sense to keep that restriction enabled) and 2) removing the ability to flash iND-BiOS 5004.06 (F only), since it is apparently broken and just bricks the TSOP/modchip.

 

Full changelog:

- Changed the default.xbe's title to "HeXEn 2018".
- New menu background image.
- Main menu's network type is now set to DHCP.
- Updated all EvoX M8+ .bin files (including sharp.bin) to remove the DVD drive check by default.
- Removed iND-BiOS 5004.06 (F only) because it bricks the TSOP/modchip it is flashed to.
- ind-bios.cfg now supports 480p by default.
- Corrected an error which prevented the sharp.bin BIOS file from being copied to the HDD.
- Partially rewrote the TSOP/modchip flash menus to make things more clear and to correct spelling/grammar.
- Updated XBMC to include JCRocky5's 480p Game Loader scripts (useful if you have a 1.6 Xbox, otherwise it can be ignored).
- Updated Chimp261812 to JCRocky5's latest release.
- 1080i support is now disabled by default (because it slows the Xbox down if enabled).
- UnleashX .xbe file replaced with a patched version that doesn't automatically create UDATA folders for all .xbe files it sees on the HDD.
-Updated the main menu's skin.xml file to display more system information to the user (on the right-hand side of the screen), and changed the color scheme of the options menus, dialogue boxes, file explorer, keyboard, etc. to better match the background image (no more of UnleashX's default ugly blue scheme clashing with it).
- Various other spelling and grammatical fixes.
- Other general housekeeping.

 

As for the rather bland new menu background, I had to go for a very minimalistic design, because I suck with Photoshop, lol. It gets the job done though.

"Sorry, there is a problem

You must be a registered member and have contributed several times to download files. This is here to help our membership achieve their goals rather than to just let people leach. 

Error code: 2D161/2"

Guess I'll just use the MEGA link.

Weird. lol. No idea why it would do that. I made a minor update to the initial release, if you wanna try it again and see if it works for you now.

Just a heads up to anyone who hasn't seen the edits to the OP. I've updated the release with a few extra changes, so if you haven't already burned a disc, you may want to redownload.

Nice work! I made an iso, really wonder why the original download is just a rar. Well, here it is. Please login or register to see this link.

 

I was dumb and forgot that I could have just packed the .iso into a .rar. I've now edited the OGXbox download to do just that though.

Some issues regarding Sharp TSOPs came to light earlier today, so I had to fix them and release a new build. I'll add the new download links to the OP as they go up.

Changelog.:

- Edited the sharp.bin BIOS file (EvoX M8+) to disable the DVD drive check.
- Corrected an error which prevented the sharp.bin BIOS file from being copied to the HDD.

      Hi peeps,
       
      I have just uploaded what i think is a complete pack of OG Xbox dlc and tu's to back-ups.me. It was the only place i could upload to without having to wait ages for an initial upload. Th whole pack is just over 3 gigs rar'd
       
      Hopefully someone can grab it and upload elsewhere so non members can grab it too. Its currently being seeded from my seedbox so speed should be good

      Hello everyone,
      I'm new to the site and figured I would introduce myself and start a help thread for a current problem that has come up. I would normally take my problems to the ISO zone but they have long since been shut down by government bodies and pressure. So in looking for a new help forum i came across this site and figured I'd give it a whirl. 
      I have an original Xbox Halo edition, that was soft modded using the Sid soft modding program (soft mod installer deluxe). I have done the install successfully for the mod about 4 years ago and quite frankly that modding platform was old and out dated and was looking for a newer and updated soft mod for my Xbox. I did some research on the web and found that I could use Rocky5"s program to successfully update my Xbox to a newer and more stable soft mod. I was currently running a very old and outdated version of Xbox on my ogxbox. But since using rocky5's program to update my soft mod via the advanced options and selecting update old Xbox soft mods, my xbox now throws a error 13 code on the screen and I can't get into Rocky5's soft mod dashboard on my Xbox.
      What can I do to fix this problem? Yes my hard drive has been upgraded & I installed a new IDE cable (as the old was damaged).
      I sadly no longer am able to access my eeprom file that I had backed up on my old hard drive since that hard drive failed. The hd suffered a power surge a long time ago and fried the circuit board that runs the writing needles. So I have no way to retrieve the backup of the Xbox. Also in saying that I can't seem to find out which hd that came stock with my ogxbox, as I have about 40 ogxbox hard drives laying around from other soft mods I have done for my friends and family and I really don't want to try each and everyone of them individually. This wouldn't have been a problem to locate which drive is mine as I had a master copy saved on my hd that failed of each and every hard drive that came out of an Xbox I did with a soft mod matched to the person and the s/n of each drive. But like I stated that information has also been lost. 
      I have a  few options I'm going to try from putting in my halo 2 game and trying to do a force Xbox dashboard update on the console to see if that will reset the error 13 code. My second option is to try and see if I can reinstall the old soft mod using splinter cell game save file and see if that will work moving forward.
      I'll keep an update on this post as I would really like to get my Xbox back into running condition.
      Thanks for your guys time reading my introduction and any replies you may have to point me in the right direction.
      Thanks again,
      Moutaindew117
