Re: XBMC hangs at splash screen

It should not have made any difference how old the main dash was, I've used UnleashX v543 (2004) and a variety of old dashboards on both a chipped and numerous softmodded machines for years and never had any trouble launching XBMC. What BIOS are you using? With a modchip all you should need to do is...

Re: XBMC hangs at splash screen

I think Rocky 5's XSMT contains XBMC and there is also his XBMC4Kids available too. Did you try to install XBMC from the HeXEn disc using HeXEn itself to install it? If so that might be the cause of the problem. It is contained, for whatever reason in the folder: " Appz ". Why that would make a diff...

Re: XBMC hangs at splash screen

My suggestion would be just to try a new source for the v3.5.3 download. If you're reinstalling a corrupted download then it would explain why the problem repeats. Install the new download of XBMC in a single level folder, preferably to F:\Apps. Then it will appear as an application in your dash's m...

Re: Xbox unleashed X.. dig into it.

Is it softmodded or chipped? First thing you should do with a 2TB HDD that has been built for you by somebody else is check that has been done correctly. You should use XBPartitioner v1.3 (must be this version) installed in Apps. If it has been done as it should have been your F and G drives should ...

Re: AID doesn't boot

If you burned it to DVD-R with ImgBurn (x4) then it should boot so, unless your disc drive laser lens is just dirty, it suggests a problem with your disc drive or your PC's RW disc drive. The latter is often overlooked but I've come across a number of instances in forums like this where using anothe...

Re: Trouble installing dashboard

As you are using a chipped Xbox there should be no trouble with any disc. Not sure why you want an EvoX main dash - XBMC is obviously the main preference here but as an alternative main dash or installed as app dash: UnleashX with its built in File Explorer and other menu options EvoX doesn't have i...

Re: Original Xbox in Christmas mode

With the description of the smoke and other info it does sound as if the Xbox is genuinely kaput. Red/Green flashing LED is a general Xbox error indication usually damaged hardware, component failure or bridged traces. If it is restarting twice before flashing red/green then it is fragging and AFAIK...

Re: Original Xbox in Christmas mode

Do you have a copy of the eeprom? If you do unlocking it on your PC should be possible but remember the HDD is FATX formatted and however you attach it to the PC (external USB housing) you'll need to use Xplorer360 or equivalent alternative to access the contents. Even then I've had properly unlocke...

Re: Why does this happen? Any help??

Philips is the most picky and, from my own experience, its age can effect compatibility. My Philips drive is in a used Xbox I bought years ago and it had clear evidence of wear and tear. It is the only disc drive I have which when I tested all the drives I own produced inconsistent results and was s...

Re: Why does this happen? Any help??

For those games larger than 4.37GB you'll need to use dual layer media/burning. Never done this myself so can not advise. What disc drive is your Xbox fitted with: found in XBMC (I)Information. It'll either be Thomson, Samsung, Philips or Hitachi? You can also identify it using the tray design:- htt...

Re: Why does this happen? Any help??

Typical disc media incompatibility issue. If you burned them on DVD-R they should all work and I'd think it being some issue with the DVD drive hardware. But if you burned them on different media (even the brand can make a difference) then that is probably the cause. Pickiest disc drives are the Phi...

Re: Softmod - lockable HDD upgrade not recognized as locked

Fingers crossed but if it was Chimp 2.4 you used it is very likely the cause the problem. I'm guessing that there was a good reason why Chimp 2.4 was replaced by Chimp 2.6 and that could be because it was incompatible or had issues with later Xbox versions ie. v1.4. Likewise Chimp 2.6 itself was rep...

Re: Softmod - lockable HDD upgrade not recognized as locked

What Chimp version? You should be using Chimp 261812 - Rocky5 honed this updated version of Chimp 2618 a few years back and it is unarguably the only version anyone should use now. It works with any Xbox version and all (?) of the issues there were with some features of the earlier versions addresse...

If so detach everything but the controller (no memory card) in the first port. Depending what your main dash is and the settings the screen...

If the emulators and roms were on the E:\drive they should have been included with everything else on C:\ and E:\. So I can't explain why they did not. Did you use Chimp261812? That is Rocky5's last Chimp update and should be used in preference to any earlier version if you can find it. With a v1.6 ...

Have to ask: how was the original 1TB HDD Xbox modded? Softmod or chip? Not sure if this is relevant but if both are softmods were they done with the same softmodding tools? There is a way around this and that is to use Chimp261812 to clone the softmodded 8GB HDD to the new 1TB HDD in the normal way...

There's no code for setting maximum fan speed but you can set it to 100% if you want to do that very easily. Just go to Settings > System > General, tick the Fan speed override and raise it to 100% - simple. If you untick that but do not tick the Auto temperature control option XBMC will still use t...
