Regarding the soldering, I read some users use conductive ink instead of actually soldering is it a real alternative?

Yeah, some people have used conductive paint to bridge connections for a TSOP flash. I haven't, so I've no experience with it.

It's neat, I guess, but I don't see the point of doing that over some simple soldering that would be more reliable.

Really comes down to alternatives for soldering. Many people don't want to do it or can't trust themselves, I botched many solder jobs which ruined my confidence with it until I soldered in a chip and got it working properly.

I have seen conductive pens used successfully. Perhaps the jankiest/most creative way I've seen has been stripping some wire, cutting a small bit of copper, placing it on top of the two points to bridge, and then taping it on top of them. It was admitted to be a very temporary solution, but hey, it works without having to touch a soldering iron!

MrMario2011,

Already thought of cutting small fine solder over both points perhaps easier solution is yours with a stripped wire or a paper clip, cover it with black tape, run the app "BiosChecker 5.0" to see if detects the TSOP chip,  I have run the app and can't detect nothing it says "Modchiped /Unknow"  so the points are not bridged yet and on successful detection,  flash new bios, no risk of damaging nothing, really only thing that can happen is protection being active, but no warm to the motherboard.

That's worth giving a shot at least, the person I saw do this method used scotch tape. If I were to do this I would personally use one of those conductive pens, seems to be a more reliable and precise method.

Gonna ask someone who has vast experience on soldering to do this to me, or else get a conductive ink.

Really people don't release how good this console is, when I see it on sale on major game shops is always collecting dust, as an underrated system, and people don't know his power to emulate a true arcade machine and dozens of game systems, you can get most of that with the Pandora system that costs three to four times more, or a raspberry pi 3, with all extras will surely reach almost the same price as a Pandora, but none of them gives you a dedicated HDD and the ability to play dozens of emulators and a  list of more 800 original games made for this system, I would say this is a heck of a console.

For sure! If you look around town you can easily find a Xbox with hookups and even a few controllers or games for around the same price as a Raspberry Pi 3 board by itself. Despite it being so old, the homebrew and emulation on it is awesome and in some aspects can be just as good or better than modern single board computer setups.

The appealing part to me is build quality, oddly enough. With other emulation setups you need to mess around a bit with different controllers, dongles, peripherals, mappings, setups, etc. and can be annoying to get it just right. The Xbox has had so much R&D behind it and the hardware is from Microsoft of all places, so no doubt the console itself is sturdy and the controllers hold up well. Setup for controllers is simply plugging them in, since it's a Xbox controller being used on a Xbox console.

On evox m8 bios there's no way to go back to dashboard when booting a game?

M8 and the latest Evolution-X BIOS M8plus have IGR - In-Game Reset. ( Left Trigger + Right Trigger + Back + Black )

If your version does not, use EVTool to add the patch to it, save the new dot bin file and reflash your TSOP/modchip. The older M8 BIOS requires an older version of EVTool - v1.0.7. While M8plus can be patched with the latest release of EVTool v1.0.9.

Already tsop, really my advice is to put this work on someone experienced flashed m8+ bios, for a one terabyte HDD which size should I adress for F and G, can I put everything on a F partition?

Don't know if this is normal but I have some glitch on Evo logo?

Can anyone help, before I could ftp to my Xbox now is always refused does anyone knows why? Applied same settings than before

What IP address does your dashboard show?  Make sure you are connecting to the correct IP address.

What FTP client are you using?  How connecting?

Filezilla's Quick Connect boxes may not work as some updated releases required a secure login which the Xbox does NOT support - only plain FTP (insecure login) - sending a cleartext user id and password.

UserID/Password combo xbox/xbox.

What's the glitch? I don't see it.

P.S. Create new topics in the correct subforum as this question doesn't directly pertain to the subject here:

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.

I'm using the ip from the dashboard ip 192.168.0.2 static using a crossover cable before tsop could ftp, had problems but when I enabled auto-detect it started working. Now can't ftp refused by the server however, with ping there's no lost of communication, can't find the problem here

Nice work, I always wondered why the M8+ insisted on the DVD. I have removed the DVD on two builds, this is great.
Sorry for changing topics, after removing the DVD how did you cover the opening left by the bay, or left it open for more air flow?

Just hunted out 2 original xbox's from my loft, been there 10 years or so. One is soft modded with Evox +3935 and the orther not sof tmodded. Look forward to soft modding the on that is not and updating the Evox +3935 if that is even possible. Want to eventually upgrade the HDD of both.

      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
