Re: Hardmoded Xbox Won't Run Games

It's a v1.6 so there is a possibility it is a 480p issue and your TV doesn't support 480i via Component or whatever cable type you're using. Fable is definitely one of the games on the v1.6 480p patch list but not sure about The Lost Chapters version. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PZzFDJrN7W8 Rock...

Re: Previews for XBMC4GAMERS

Do you have any other installed dashboards you can test the original XMVs you have? The UnleashX dash is the main reason the preview files are all XMV format as it can't play MP4s. They, the XMVs, should play from the UnleashX file manager wherever you have them and any games with a "preview.xm...

Re: Previews for XBMC4GAMERS

What type of video file are you trying to convert to MP4 using Rocky5's Resize MP4 to Xbox Size tool? I haven't done extensive testing with multiple file types, just some XMV previews I had already made, using another tool, for use with an UnleashX main dash. All I did is download the tool from the ...

Re: Xbox original aladdin modchip issue

If you have not installed a dashboard then that's your error 13 explained. It can be caused for other reasons but that seems the most likely. The chip allows you to boot an installer disc, like HeXEn, AID or Slayers and install a dash (Chip/TSOP options). Chances are the problem with the HeXEn disc ...

Re: Red and green

Just read/green continuously or red/green with two restarts.

Generally red/green is not good - often hardware or component failure or trace damage often caused by leaking capacitors.

Re: Xbox can't boot into retail kernal

Blank screen but sound could be resolution support issue or regional setting. If you're trying to play a game like PAL Timesplitters 2 and you've region swapped your Xbox to NTSC so you can play it in 480p you get that happening. The game only supports PAL and there are other both PAL and NTSC games...

Re: Hack ndure / xbmc4gamer fatal error

Yes, that's an almost generic XBMC error when the existing installation is corrupted in some way and can. of course, also appear when using an incompatible skin version. Always better to download a full new version to another folder and test that works rather than to try and update a running version...

Re: Help with newly acquired xbox

Oh its: OpenXDK (since corrected in the earlier post) the Open Xbox Development Kit not OpenXDH. Dumb of me not to realise that and might be why I didn't get any hits when Googling.

Thanks for the info

Re: Help with newly acquired xbox

With a TSOP the Xbox is effectively like a chipped machine which means you can pretty much do whatever you want without too much risk. A TSOP in this case is simply a shorthand Xbox modding term for the replacement of the original Xbox BIOS with a new one. That is written to the, previously read onl...

Please share then. Post something useful that may help other Xbox users.

Re: Album Track Order By Number Not Alphabetically

I didn't get answer to this at the time and I'd actually forgotten I'd asked this question here. But recently I've ripped a few more new CD albums to XBMC and again its irked me that there isn't an option to list the tracks in their original number order. Quite frankly the prospect of having to chan...

Re: I need help (a soft modded 2TB HDD)

He has the eeprom already but I'm not sure what can be done with it just on PC when the Xbox is dead and the HDD locked meaning it cannot be hot-swapped. Windows won't recognise/give you access to the locked HDD so even if you use XBHDM USB you can't unlock it. At least that is what I believe is the...

Re: Softmod HELL Error code 6

As indicated I'm not a HeXEn expert or at least not as knowledgeable about it as some of the other guys here. What I'm not getting is how you ran HeXEn (from disc?) to build the new HDD if the HDD installed "had packed up". Some sort of hot swap technique? I think you need to described exa...

Re: Softmod HELL Error code 6

No, HeXEn or any other burned disc won't run on a a retail state HDD even if locked. You can not just put another new HDD in a softmodded Xbox and expect it to work. The softmod files are on the HDD and without them you have no softmod. Even if you copy them to the new HDD its still unlocked and so ...

Re: Replace DVD drive softmodded xbox

You can replace the Xbox DVD drive with a bit of physical/electrical modding but you'll lose all Xbox game playing capabilities. There is/was at least one old IDE DVD drive that, with updated firmware, could replace an original drive but you'll be lucky to find that now. The increasingly common advi...

Re: Modchip over softmod

Yes but I hope you understand that to fit a chip to the v1.6 you need to rebuild the LPC (Low Pin Count). Its a typically unhelpful name for the 16 hole connection mount on the MB which allows additional devices ie. a chip in this case to be attached, usually with a pin-header. With the v1.6 MB MS r...

Re: How to stop MS Dashboard from auto launching game in DVD Drive

AFAIK there is nothing you can do about that MS dash behaviour at least not with a softmod. I'm not sure about a TSOP though as you're replacing the MS Retail dash BIOS with a custom BIOS and it may be possible to edit the autoplay function on/off. It may be possible with a chip too. I'm also wonder...

Definitely yes. The FATX formatting only supports up to 1024GB using 64K clusters. If you don't reformat for equal F & G partitions of that maximum size the moment the content on your single F drive exceed that it will corrupt. Its practically guaranteed. Use XBPartioner v1.3 or Chimp to reforma...
