Frag XBox With Dead Hdd?

Recommended Posts

How would you go about replacing a hdd in a dead xbox? mod chips? I've been looking for a tutorial but I can't find anything. Also, everything on the xbox seems to work, so but the hdd is just freaking out with sound, so I assume its the hdd 1.0 btw.

I would solder a modchip to bypass the need of a locked drive.

Then creating a xbox hdd via xboxhdm.

So just soldering a mod chip will allow me to switch out the hard drive?

Yes, but unless you are proficient in soldering electronic components, I would practice on something first..

ditto.

 

its not an easy install to rebuild lpc. some of us are fortunate to have a ton of mistakes behind us. alot of mistakes can be corrected, some cannot. destroying an xbox is always destroying an xbox. even a 10$ unit.... its one less functional xbox on this chunk of slag spinning around the sun

EEPROM reader to obtain the data needed to lock a new HDD set up with XboxHDM.  PC with IDE if you use XboxHDM v1.9 or 2.2a or USB-to-HDD interface adapter with XboxHDM23USB Beta 2.

Or, install a modchip, Aladdin XT plus 2 (aka XT 4032, etc) boot Hexen 2017 or 2018 to format the new HDD and install the dashboard to it.

      Hi all,
      I just bought an OG Xbox v1.1 with Xbit modchip (Evox 3.6 bios is loaded). I still have to open it up for cleaning and checking if the clock capacitor is still in place.
      Up until now, I had only softmodded my other Xbox.
      So, what should I do to this one? Can I update the modchip's bios with Hexen Tools, or should I use the old updater tool for Xbit?
      I guess I could still update the dashboard using Hexen tools, right?
      I'd really appreciate your help!
