Hi, I'm a new memeber and this is my first post.
I've recently dug out my softmodded OG Xbox 1.6. I modded it maybe 10 years ago then didn't really do anything with it. I remember having it connected to a PC via IDE to carry out the mod, other than that not sure about versions etc.
I connected it via component and get a screen that is heavily tinted green after the boot screen. I found some info that this may be due to a poor softmod?
In order to try to repair this/update my softmod I have tried to run JCRock5's Extras disc, but it always gets stuck at the splash screen saying "Retail 5838 BIOS DETECTED". I have tried it from disc and iso, cold boot and launcher, always with the same result.
I have also tried the Quick Updater and Upgrader which run but both come up with the error "Xbox softmodding tool not installed".
A couple of other things I noticed: My G and F drives were not visible. I enabled these in the UnleashX menu which showed the F drive as 0mb but still no G drive. I ran the UnleashX format tool which gave me a 2gb F drive. I tried this for the G drive but it is still not visible.
I have also managed to update UnleashX to the latest build via FTP.
Any help would be much apreciated. Thanks.
Hi guys, i just bought a softmoded xbox with a 250gb HDD in it, works well but it's a PAL Xbox, wich mean that i don't have HD options, and it's just unwatchable on my 4k Sony TV, who by the way doesn't have component ports, only RCA and HDMI, i'm stuck with the unfindable and expensive HD LINK by Pound, but lucky me, i found a similar cable converter on Amazon for 25€, even with bad reviews i have no choices but to order it and test it.
So i solder the points for the TSOP, and also removed the clock capacitor, burned a Hexen DVD (the 2018 one) , launched it, choose the suitable flashing option for my Winbound 1.4 motherboard, and tried to flash the bios, BUT : i have a non official controller! And as i'm sure you know, gentoox is not capable of recognizing no names controller, but only the official one, and of course : i don't have one (but order one on Rakuten), i tried multiple time with every bios that was on the DVD (only the windbounds one of course), but gentoox just don't like cheap controllers no matter how fast i press on the D-Pad
Now that you have the context, here's my question : Is there any way to flash the custom bios without the gentoox tool ?
I know that we can do it with Unleashx (or Evox i don't remember), but i can't find the bios anywhere (just don't know where to look too besides googling it), and even if i find one, i'm not sure where to put it exactly or if it's safe to do anything without Hexen or Xblast.
Thanks in advance
(and i'm french by the way, so i'm sorry for my poor english)
