If you like chips then drop Psycho_Chewbacca a line. He accepts bitcoin and actually released a new chip and BIOS. The XBLAST OS. Hes based in Quebec Canada and a good guy, had a number of dealings with him. Otherwise I would suggest going Babylon softmod and HDD build, its the continuation of the SID/AID line. Some fixes over the 5.11 and 5.12 releases but overall still the same as always, rock solid and retard resistant

well i dont have bitcoin lol i was thinking of getting a bunch of aladdin chips plus2 ones but want a very reliable one does he have install instructions for his chips. I just picked up one with 800 xbox games on it but noticed it was a 1.6 and no modchip or even a presence of a modchip installed i thought you needed modchips for the 1.6 but again been a very long long time ha.


whats the best method to unlock the hard drive or best method to back up all the games just in case this hard drive goes i notice it was a 2tb hitachi and i dont like the hitachi line lol so if any advice on this would be awesome.

My bud brought his xbox over i sold to him a long time ago and has the x3 ce chip installed it needs new caps so im going to put those in and maybe if this works put the hard drive in there and unlock it then i should be able to see it on my windows computer right?

No XBOX version requires a modchip, in fact I personally advise against going that route. The issue with the 1.6 was the dash but we sorted that out years ago Very Happy I rock a 250GB 1.6B past 7 or so years, runs like a champ using SID 5 Babylon.

For unlocking the drive there are a few methods. You can boot up the XBOX with a game then unhook the HDD when the game loads, use an app like configmagic and pull the HDD while the XBOX is still on, or dump the eeprom and FTP it to a PC and use XBOXHDM to unlock it with your PC..

As for backup the only way is FTP. The best method is with a PC that has 2 ethernet ports or a PC on wireless running shared connection with the XBOX. That way you will get 10+MB/s transfer speed. Classic via router/modem connection youre looking closer to 2-5MB/s speed.

And whatever you do dont replace the HDD with a WD drive. POS all around. Good platters bad mechanics and crap out after a few years where as Seagate will last you a decade or so. WD aint what it used to be. Just lost a few weeks ago my third WD and all my most recent source code for KIxxx, Zsnex and SMSPlusX

when you did the softmod on the 1.6 was there anything different or is a guide pretty straight forward for it in the softmod package?

Does anyone know a fast way to transfer 2tb of games to another xbox hard drive im doing ftp right now but just trying to see if there was a faster way like cloning the f and g partitions only? or is ftp the best method.

There's also Rocky5's Xbox Softmodding Tool Build v1.1.3.

Last update made in 2017 about a month ago.

Installation (exploit) game saves available for:
  • 007: Agent Under Fire
  • Splinter Cell [PAL or NTSC]
  • MechAssualt
  • Tony Hawk's Pro Skater 4 [region free, NTSC and PAL]
Replacement dashboard installed is UnleashX 0.39.0528A Build 584 Patched to solve FTP client root directory listing error for some clients (e.g., FileZilla and WinSCP). Patch sets timestamp to a fixed value. Thus, all files downloaded will have the patch's fixed date/time and not the current value if the client is set to retain source's, the Xbox FTP server, timestamp.

FTP is the only way. Drive cloning takes at least 4 times as long most likely more. And the softmod Kaos_enger linked is legit. Rocky5 took my GlueSniffers mod and fed it steroids. Man does great work, little finniky on his batch files but hey we all are a little tempremental now and then lol. If its just gonna be you or other XBOX friendly people using it stick with SID/Babylon, if there is gonna be kids and unknowns screwing with it go Babylon Beta GlueSniffer Mod or Rocky5

As you are XBOX efficient but just coming back to the game I would suggest Babylon simply because at any time you can type in "tut" (minus quotations) and it will load up the Babylon training vids (1080P start to finish hand hold guidance vids) and also will load up the text tuts for every included app.

thanks for all the info guys i have done 3 so far fine now im going to tsop some and drive cloning is the way to go for tsop ones anyways the 1.6s im going to have to get chips (prefer chips for those) you was saying about a chip and some guy but it be nice to see pics of what they look like or more info on them if you have any links.

heard cloning is fastest with a cloner not chimp so i bought one and will try it soon as i get it. going to do some paint jobs on a couple here soon to.

An Xbox HDD will not be accessible directly with Windows. FATX format is an unknown filesystem to Windows.

Xbox HDD Cloning: FTP or ...

Clone HDD on Xbox running Chimp261812. Individual partitions to be cloned can be selected (e.g., F and G) or the entire HDD if the same size (brand and model number) destination drive is attached as a SLAVE device -- connected to the DVD drive's IDE connector.

Or, a dual port SATA dock/duplicator. (Needs to be the same size HDD, thus a larger 2TB HDD needs to have the files added by a different method prior to using a hardware duplicator to another 2TB HDD.) The additional space will NOT be accessible if cloning a smaller HDD to a larger HDD.

Plus to use a USB 2-port SATA duplicator, the duplication method must be 1-to-1 sector dupping. Some USB2.0/3.0 2-drive SATA dock/duplicators do not use this method. Make sure the one you purchase does 1-to-1 duplication and not the 30%+ faster filesystem-style duplication.

Either of these methods should be much faster than FTPing files.

Normally a byte to byte dupe will take forever and a day. I know the old Norton Ghost we used to use back in the day to clone XBOX HDDs would take 4 or 5 hours to clone the stock 8GB drives. On my 1.6b Chimp takes about 35-40 minutes to do a Stock drive copy to a larger drive (I use IDE no SATA)

As for FATX and Windows there are work arounds such as using XDK and a factory reco disc. If I have time this weekend I'll do a vid showing how to use XDK to build an HDD (requires quasi- hotswap or using another app to lock the HDD if going in a softmod XBOX) Its also very easy to tweak Action Replay and Gameshark to use for building HDDs, just again you need another app to lock the HDD. And you could always try to bug LegendaryFire into expanding FatxFormater to supporting USB HDDs. I tried back in the day but he was always worried about people nuking HDDs by mistake
