hi.....!


hope this is the right place to post this ,, im joan23 from the philippines and i am very much interested in reviving an old xbox i just stumbled upon a few weeks ago and when i turned it on it is still working ie. the xbox logo with the evox logo on the left side appears then a message "16 please call customer assistance" and i thought of opening the console i noticed an alladin xt plus2 mod chip with a red light on, i also noticed that there is no hdd on it, so i looked and found 1, for the meantime a western digital 80 gig hdd,, the problem is - i dunno anything about this, on how to install this hdd.. im thinking of putting up a movie or mtv videos on it and a friend of mine gave me two original cd games.. my dilemma is how can i put this altogether .....

thanks in advance and hope someone could help me in this project....


best regards,,,

Hello,

If you already have a modchip installed the rest of what you want to do should be easy.
simply connect up the hard drive you have, then download Auto Installer Deluxe v4.50 , burn it to DVD-R then boot your xbox with it in the DVD Drive, use the `Hardmod` section to install a dashboard to your C/ partition then pick whatever applications and emulators you fancy.

Post back with your progress.

hi again,,,,


sorry for the late reply took me quite sometime on getting to boot up my console on the auto installer deluxe thanks for the tip eg. "cdrw" hehehe now im in the process of putting up media onto it i guess there are specific players for an specific media for this console any pointers on how or where can i find these? also how is it then installed?

thanks!!! guess an old xbox can be of some use after all.... also how can this be all be installed in a child safe environment if and when i get this playing so that kids wont accidentally erase files i saw all commands in the dashbords eg. erase button can these be deleted or disabled?...


thanks and best wishes..........

What dashboard are you currently running ? ...... XBMC turns your xbox into capable media player playing most formats, its on the AID disc, Either install it as your main dashboard or as an application you can launch from within whatever dash you use at the moment.

hi again....!!!


im still at the process of getting to know the dashboards well im guessing that i would,, for now prefer the unleash x v0.38 (or if there is a newer version ? ) and i would wish to put also the media players and the medias itself but still dunno how,, im still trying to understand the tutorials and its quite challenging to a total newbie like me,, most i still do not understand how to do but one thing i have done as advised in an article i have read ... i bought a 320gig hdd to have all games and media installed into it... one article says i have to softmod it to be able to properly work but to date i still have no idea what is that ,,, ill still be looking for the answears and another article says i have to do some flash bios whatever that it means,,, guess ill have do more research on that,,,, i would appreciate it if somebody would link me to an easily understandable step by step procedure on how these things works as all the forums i read so far makes me confused more... the more i read the more i get confused hehehehe....


thanks and best wishes ,,,

joan23


btw. sorry for my not very good english hehehehe.....

Hi,
Forget about the softmod for now, its just an alternative method of making your xbox do what you want, you have a chip installed, so no need for a softmod .. You are in a better position.

If you connect up your 320gb hard drive, then boot your xbox with the Auto Installer Deluxe disc it will detect the new drive and format it for you.
Use the disc to install a dashboard to the C/ partition.
Everything should be working ok, if your xbox only reports 120gb or so, then its time to update your bios.

Post back if anythings unclear or if you need a couple of pointers.

what softmod installer? is it all already included in most of auto installers like auto installer deluxe and xbmc auto installers? in my case i cannot access all of it, whenever i put a new hdd on a unmodded xbox but however can access it, when i put back its 320g hdd (wondering what is it in this 320 hdd that makes the unmodded xbox read or boot from the dvd rom first?), is there a stand alone softmod installer which will run on unmodded xbox with a new hdd? ... i guess the right question is - how to revive an unmodded xbox with new hdd?


thanks.....


best wishes ,,,

Hi,
For your unmodded box to read the Auto Installer Disc it needs to be modded.
Without installing a modchip your easiest option is to soft mod it.
you need a memory card and a copy of either splinter cell, 007 agent under fire or mechassault.
Insert the memory card in your modded xbox and use the AID disc to install the softmod files to the memory card.
Insert the memory card in your unmodded xbox and copy the files from the memory card to the xboxes hard drive.
Run the corresponding game ie: splinter cell, mechassault or 007 AUF and click on the `Linux` profile, follow the onscreen prompts to install the softmod.
Reboot and you now have a modded console without the use of a mod chip.

If you want your 320gb hdd to work with your softmodded xbox you need to run an application called `Chimp` on the softmodded xbox and use it to clone the standard 8gb hdd to the 320gb one.
