  1. I have 4 Original Xboxs, 2 have K4D263238F-QC50 ram chips and 2 have K4D263238M-QC50. I can get better deal on the "F" ram..Are they interchangeable? meaning can I install the "F" chips on the xbox's with the "M" ram?
  2. Im having no luck installing addons in to xbmc4xbox 3.5.3 is it even possible? All the tuts I found say to go to system then addons which doesnt exist. I did install this on a pc and it was there but not on the xbox version...any advise?
  3. Is it possible to mount a second hdd in a tsop xbox removing the dvd? Dont need permanent replacement want to copy my f partition to put on other xboxs and xplorer360 sucks and the xbrowser with xboxhdm i cant mount a 2nd drive of format.
  4. Ok Bad new for me....the XBOX that I deleted the hdd accidentally is a ver 1.6 by the chart http://www.informit.com/articles/article.aspx?p=367210&seqNum=2on Table 3.4...my video chip is an Xcalibur...so I guess the only thing I can do with this one is put ion a mod chip and build a new hdd...
  5. I am going to try a few of your suggesions..especially the TSOP flash., I am actually about to make a eeprom reader I found on saturday here http://www.instructables.com/id/XBox-EEPROM-ReaderWriter/ I bout the diodes and resister yesterday so I can extract the info from the board.
  6. None are 1.6. I accidently wiped the original hard drive to one of these. My problem is i have not been successful using xboxhdmv1.9 to lock the drives so the will boot. They lock fine but not with a password that the xboxes can open. While chimp2.6.8 locks and unlocks perfectly bur again neither of these will run chimp properly. One of them will boot chimp with no video making it useless and the other will boot chimp with fatx missing from the selections. I have made paperweights out of 5 hdds using xboxhdm to lock them.
  7. I have 3 Original XBoxs. All of which I was able to softmod. The first one flawless, added a SATA HDD using an adapter(after reading that a 80 wire IDE cable was needed). They way I did was: 1 - Copy Splinter Cell game same to hdd 2 - Copy SID 5.12 game save to hdd 3 - Launch Splinter Cell 4 - Create Backups 5 - Load the dash 6 - FTP to my PC 7 - Copy CHIMP 2.6.8 to hdd 8 - Copy C, E, X, Y, Z drives to PC 9 - Run Xboxhdmv1.9, putting files where they need to be 10 - Run the linux.iso, option 1 11 - Run Xboxhd 12 - Generate Eeprom (opt. 6) 13 - Create Dos Floppy w/Locking tools (opt. 7) 14 - Build New Xbox HD (option 1) 15 - Start Xbox (original Softmodded hdd) 16 - Attach new hdd as slave removing the DVD 17 - Run Chimp 18 - Lock Slave Drive from eeprom.bin 19 - Reboot with new drive as master..Works like a champ Now for #2 and #3 same steps followed but with both of these I could not get chimp to run, was able to lock the disks with xboxhdm but the xboxes would not unlock them. (ERROR 06) And yes I used the eeprom.bin files from the appropriate xboxs. I went through the same process each time. I am able to unlock the drives using xboxhdm. Also, tried 4 different versions of CHIMP no different. Any advise, besides buy a modchip?
  8. Another question...will a softmod xbox play original media with a non xbox dvd rom. Since it can play backups should this work?
  9. I was able to do the softmod..found an old digital camera which worked for the splinter cell exploit. Now my question is with the modchip how do you load new dashboards software etc..is it built in on chip.
  10. Hey..I have 4 Original Xbox Consoles that I acquired from a yard sale. They all power up and play games nicely. I could care less about Xbox games, I want to make these in to Emulation/Media Boxes. I read dozens of posts and instructions and it all seems fairly straight forward for the softmod with the exception that I do not have a memory card and in October of 2016 you can find a usb stick (off the shelf) that can be read in the console or formatted FATx. So before I spend more money and run into road blocks I had a few questions: 1. Softmod or Mod Chip, do the both do the same thing? Again I don't care Xbox games/backups/Imports, just emulation and a larger hd 2. Which Softmod technique 3. Which Mod Chip Thanks for reading...I always get the best answers here..
  11. Another couple questions... 1. Is there a wire pinout for the controllers available not what wire to what pin but what function each trigger 2. Can a new flex circuit and side buttons be purchased 3. Facing the machine which controller is player 1, the left like Atari or right What i got so far is if I remove the left controller and plug the right into the left i can start and play games. I opened the left and the flex circuit looks burned at a few places. I think this is coming from the side triggers not springing back keeping the power flowing which caused the burns...any advise would be awesome.
  12. Never opened before..i just looked at rhe board..looks like its still 1979 in there. Controller connection look good. But while hot plugging player 1 controller the game started couldnt get ot to do much after that so im thinking about disassembling the controllers to clean and corrosion or to see if anything is shorting
  13. I bought out someones collection of retro games and this was with it. I want to repair it so I can trade or sell it. But being a computer/network tech I need to fix it rather then an as is sale.
