  • IGR is causing double reboot
    So my default bios, evox 1.6 m8plus, and any modification of this I make, are causing a double reset when pressing the IGR combination. Xbox resets, logo comes up, hdd led flashes a bit, then a black scree, reset, Xbox logo comes up, hdd flashes and then dashboard loads. Played around with a few settings in Evtool, didn't make much difference. If I set the IGR to "quick", then I don't get the double reset, but I don't get the xbox logo either, just a black screen... doesn't seem like it's resetting twice with this option though. Any reason for this? It's an old (2005)...
  • FS: XBox 1.6 Mod Kit...
    Hello all, I have a spare XBox, chip and HDD selling as a mod "kit" I just don't have the time or need for it now... This is a 1.6 XBox in working condition. The case has 2 very small marks on it - pictures of all this can be provided based on interest. I have an LPC rebuild board, an XBlast Aladdin2 chip originally bought from Retrogamerstuff and a WD 500GB HDD that has been unlocked and was previously used in another modded console - it still has EMUS, APPS and ROMS and stuff already installed. I can include a composite cable too, but no power cord. The consoles seem to sell...
  • Full replacement xbox case
    So my plan is to design an aftermarket original xbox case that keeps all the original components (mainboard with heatsinks, controller ports, dvd rom, psu, hdd, etc) with the possible exception of the rear fan and metal shielding. To achieve this I have been 3d modelling all of the internals to ensure everything fits. I have some ideas on the style I want to go for but have some questions. 1. Should I include a place to mount an lcd/oled? 2. Would you want to keep the xbox jewel? 3. Hdd/lan activity leds? 4. Any other requests Once I have some feedback the most...
  • What does region free mean, anyway?
    Hi all, So I've gotten back into the scene taking a break from my RaspberryPi VirtualMan builds to setup some ogXboxes that I had in the garge taking up space. I now have two Xboxes: One with Rocky5's Softmod with a 2TB HD; the other a 1.4 hardmod with Cerbios latest version and a 3TB drive. I noticed that PAL games (Alien Hominid, Panzer Elite Action, Pool:Shark 2) don't run on the hardmod, but do run on the softmod. So how is region free handled on the original modded Xbox, and why would there be a discrepancy? Inquiring minds want to know. I don't mind getting all...
  • Xbox 1.4 - dead ?
    Hi, I have a problem with starting XBOX. When I press power, nothing happens, only a hissing sound and a "knock" emanating from the console, as if from the power supply, (something like the console board wanted to turn on but could not). No picture and no errors led on the console. Please advise what can cause this, I will add that the 1.4 board is in very good condition, there are no loose capacitors, the paths are intact and in very good condition. The power supply is checked and working. I changed the console TSOP, ver ind-bios 5003 and it worked for 2 weeks without any problems. Please...
  • Getting ScummVM roms to show up in XBMC-Emustation
    So far I've tried folders, zip files, raw/loose files in roms/scummvm and emulators/scummvm/roms, and creating .svm files with shortnames in them, no luck though. I'm wondering if anyone else has this working and can offer some guidance here. Loader.xbe in scummvm sees and loads them fine

  • Modchip Installed but DVD drive broken
    I'm currently attempting to hardmod my OG xbox. I bought it a few years ago with a broken hard drive and am finally getting around to fixing it. Having installed Open xenium mod chip and booted to xenium OS I found that the DVD drive couldn't read my copy of hexan - which I was going to use to format the HDD and install XBMC. I know I can format the drive using XboxHDM but I need to read the eeprom, is this true even for a hard modded xbox? I'm quite new to this so I'm not sure what my options are from here, I can try to repair the drive but so far haven't had any...
  • Spartan Total Warrior - 480p on a 1.6
    So recently hooked up my old xbox to a HDTV - previously I only ever used it via SCART - found a few games that were garbled on my 1.6 and been looking at patching them up. I notice that Spartan Total Warrior is classed as "black screen and freezes"... well on my xbox, years ago I ripped the game from a scene release using dvd2xbox, and I am running this game happily in 480p. I know this because my tv gives a little text box showing the video mode when it switches. How is this working then?
  • V1.0 horizontal line on screen.
    Background. I got hold of a v1.0 (gpu fan model) with the intention of TSOP flashing it, but it wouldn't boot past the logo, and I diagnosed hard drive failure. The clock capacitor hadn't leaked when I removed it, and the Thompson DVD drive works, so I'm guessing the hard drive failed early and the Xbox was put away faulty. Anyway I fitted an Aladdin (breaking a track fitting the rom disable 😭) Having fixed the track, fitted the rom disable to a different place and swapped the hard drive, it works! However, there is a horizontal line (usually pinky coloured) that slowly moves...
  • TSOP V1.1 IND bios not booting, looking for suggestions
    Thanks for your time and any help you fine folks can provide. Here's what I got, and here's some symptoms and our current situation. 2020 bought TSOP'd V1.1 from a nice gent on ebay. It worked fine for the past two years, then recently encountered problems.

  • [FIXED] How did I do this... now a dead Philips DVD drive
    Hi all, I was putting the Xbox Softmod disc into the drive of my Xbox and then I hit the close button before I noticed it wasn't seated properly in the drive tray. Several unpleasant sounds later I hate to take apart the DVD drive to get the disc out. Now, the drive is recognized by the Xbox but when I insert a disc and close the drawer the motor stutter spins, then nothing and it shows as 'busy' to the xbox. How up Schitz Creek am I? Russellb
  • Is there a good and SIMPLE soccer game for Xbox?
    I mean, played FIFA and it's like... ultra-complex campaign mode... very limited number of national teams (lots of useless clubs)... NO EDITOR (really? that's the funniest part, to build your own team!)... complex commands (some sort of mix between PES and older FIFA titles... switching player makes my mind stun...)... isn't there something really simple like older ISS games or even Virtua Striker series? Asking here instead of usual "top 10 soccer games" pages because those pages only talk about PES and FIFA. Of course, I'm not looking for excellent games... even "decent" are ok to me.
  • v1.6 Mod - Booting to original xbox dashboard
    I purchased an original xbox with a v1.6 mod, a 1TB SATA HDD, and it booted into XBMC4Gamers and was working fine. Unfortunately my daughter managed to get the controller, press some buttons (saw it scanning for dashboards), and then cancelled it. I wasn't sure what she had done so I turned the console off/on and now it boots back to the original Xbox dashboard. How can I get it to boot back in to XBMC4Gamers? It apparently also has XBMC Origins, MS dash, EvoX and UnleashedX installed too. I've searched various forums and found different solutions (either FTP) or using TruHeXEn? I...
  • Bad EEPROM
    So I have this 1.1 that I replaced the EEPROM chip on at some point, years ago. I remember I did this because it was flashing red only. I don't know why I didn't try to just program the EEPROM, but I guess it doesn't matter, what's done is done. Anyways, years later I've dug it out and it still flashes red for bad EEPROM. I've built myself an EEPROM reader cable and tested it on some of my working units without issue. I can write and write the the EEPROM on this unit, and I've written a good EEPROM dump from another working 1.1 unit, but I still get the bad EEPROM flashing red led etc....

  • Case led problems
    Hi, I'm currently try to install strip led lights in my OG crystal case, it need a 12v source. IV tryed the 12v direct from the power supply board and also from a hard drive power splitter. The problems I'm have is it keeps blowing MOSFETs on the motherboard? Is there a limit to how many LEDs can be installed? Thanks

  • Green LED Flashing After 128 MB RAM Upgrade
    I have a 1.0 and I flashed XBlast to the TSOP then tested each chip as I went. Once all 4 were passing I reinstalled OpenXenium and attempted to boot iND-BIOS-5003. Only, the LED flashes green and it doesn't boot. I tested several homebrew BIOS loaded from OpenXenium and they all have the same problem. I'm considering triple-checking for shorts (or reflowing with hot air) yet I'm surprised because XBlast boots and says all 4 RAM passes. I found a couple of Reddit posts with the exact problem:...
  • So what not Xbox thing have you done with your today.
    Just thought I would start this thread as a kinda fun thing. Given most of us have modded Xboxes, got me wondering what people are doing thats technically not modding, or using it in a way the thing supposed to be. To this end I bring you The OGXbox door stop This is a limited edition, they only made one in clear as far as I know. Seriously when we have the doors and windows open in the house in the summer the near constant breeze always finds the doors and slams them shut. Doorstops are not great in our house as between pets and children they just...
  • Weird persistent error 21
    Hi all. I posted this question in the X-S Discord a day or two ago and haven't made any headway in resolving the issue, so I'll post here and see if anyone may be able to help. A few days ago, I acquired a "non-working" 1.2/1.3 that had never been opened but externally was very clean. When I received it, I immediately opened it up to pull the clock capacitor and clean it up. Aside from the clock cap, the polymer caps were all leaking, as well as the caps near the CPU/GPU. I cleaned and recapped the entire board before ever attempting to power it up. After the initial...
  • Nice Jewel Backlight... the Electroluminescent panel
    I found this and thought it would potentially make a nice jewel backlight. They are paper thin, 10cm x 10cm EL panels. They are cheap and simple. https://www.aliexpress.com/item/4000511081220.html?spm=a2g0o.productlist.0.0.3cc67ef9BTKbRB&algo_pvid=70858ccc-5276-4812-92bf-166bf11b0c47&algo_exp_id=70858ccc-5276-4812-92bf-166bf11b0c47-8&pdp_ext_f={"sku_id"%3A"12000019280130651"}&pdp_npi=2%40dis!CAD!!12.2!!!!!%402101d91e16555800182977430ed7b3!12000019280130651!sea There is a little inverter for the panel, but its small enough to fit behind the harddrive....
