Im in the process of upgrading my ram. The mod chip im using is an x2.6 with ind-bios. I have the xblastos xbe installed on my HDD.
My thinking was that I could boot to my dashboard then launch the xblastos xbe to check each ram chip. However, upon powering on the xbox, it boots three times and the led's flash red and orange.
My question is do I need the xblast bios flashed to my modchip for the xbox to boot during the upgrade or have I made a mistake during the installation?
Im quite confident about my soldering. Checking under x60 magnification and lots of light
I have Xbox original v1.0. component cable
I made Tsop and it work greate.
I hope to make ram upgreade, but first i write XBlast OS on my bios. after rebut I donot see start console.
XBlast OS in ThuHexen 2021 256kb
Maybe it work only with composite cable?
can i flash the bios with programmer ? it is posible ?
Looking to get a Working Xbox for my nephew's birthday next month.
I have my original modded xbox(1) that stopped working in storage, it has a little corrosion on the mod chips ground. It does nothing when powered.
I also picked up 2 xboxes randomly a year or two ago that were thrown out.
one (2) boots to a need service error, it defiantly sounds like a broken HDD.
The other (3) does nothing like the first one, and has a short in the power connector. You can actually see light coming form under the connector with the top off.
I welcome advice and help with where I should focus my efforts and what I should do. I assume that the ground being corroded on the mod chip would probably not produce the no boot? The HDD issue sounds like the easiest fix, can I just swap the HDD from the other non modded box to check if that is the only issue? And then I can just mod that xbox, I have not looked into what that would entail yet. But then the power connector short is probably a pretty simple fix as well. I do have a soldering iron, but was not the person who modded it originally and have little to no experience in that.
