I recently updated XBMC4XBOX on it and now it plays the same play list but now it is not random it plays the same file order every time. I have selected shuffle when saving the playlist but it doe...

Re: unknown chip not booting

that is an xecuter 2.6 modchip you could try to hard wire it to boot a bank below is the info I believe on the functions of the pins of the bank switch. Pins 1 & 4 - On if bank switch is set to 1, off if set to 2. Pins 2 & 4 - On if chip is enabled, off if disabled. Pins 3 & 4 - On if flash is prote...

Re: Smartxx LCD does not work

your soldering is not really that good, turn the temp down as it is melting the insulation and retracting from the solder pad leaving a lot of exposed wire and possibly wicking the solder up the wire which will leave it brittle. i'd double check your connections are in the correct spots, does it wor...

Re: Need Help! G Drive Disappeared and F Shows Wrong Size and No Content.

Some times with sata adaptors they add delay when they init and the partitions/ drive may not be fully online before the kernel needs it and it boots up with partitions missing usually f/g. try an alternate sata adaptor (one from the recommended list) and see if it rectifies the problem it most like...

Re: "Reboot" Freezes Xbox

being it is a 1.1 I would suggest the fix would be to tsop flash it.

if you are reluctant to solder a conductive paint would be an idea.

Re: ram chips,where to buy?

I believe going above 128 is not going to happen any time soon. For starters you cant buy ram chips in the same package as the current ones in bigger sizes they really only come in BGA form above 128 and would require an adaptor to the convert it to fit the motherboard. The design of this adaptor is...

Re: How does the d0 point work on the Aladdin xt plus2?

Lframe is an LPC Bus signal that signifies the start of an LPCBus transaction, in the case with the Xbox it is the trigger for the xbox to talk to device connected to the Xbox LPC Headder by telling the cyclops the bus is busy so the modchip has free rain to access the LCP port. Yip that is the trac...

Re: How does the d0 point work on the Aladdin xt plus2?

The D0 point is what causes the Xbox to boot from the LPC bus instead of the onboard bios. the 1.6 is a bit different as you control LFrame but for all intent purposes the same result and often labeled D0 in install manuals and references on the net. If you permanently ground the D0/ LFrame it will ...

Re: xboxhdm 23

Your Xbox cant find the files in the dash to set the clock and because of this it refuses to boot (files on C: are corrupt or missing). Just put the stock files on the hdd boot up set the clock then go through the modding process again but dont unplug the console from the power or the clock will bec...

Re: [Help] Formatting my 500GB HDD

You need to update your bios to get lba48 support.

if it says xecuter on boot likely it is an old version and you could update to evox m8+ or indbios

Re: Kodi (XBMC) Released For Xbox One

I believe there is no bit streaming and no samba and no tv tuner support those are the main issues, other than that it seems to work well for me.

Has any one herd about the meltdown and spectre exploits that have popped up recently ? looks like it is quite serious bug that effects generations of intel, arm and possibly amd processors enabling access to other apps memory pools.

Re: Kodi (XBMC) Released For Xbox One

The thing is Microsoft bent over backwards to get kodi onto the app store, they approached the team and helped convert it to a uwp application for cross platform support. You cant deny the user base of xbmc/kodi and it really promoted sales of andriod tv boxes even though it may be related to piracy...
