WHAT YOU NEED
Modded Xbox - doesnt matter which mod really.
CD burner (and CDRW's that your Xbox can read)
PC with a network card
Network Cable (ideally Crossover)
Evox dashboard downloaded (pref lastest version)
NOTE ON CABLES -
PATCH CABLE OR CROSSOVER CABLE WFT ?
There are 2 types of network cable and both have RJ45 connectors at both ends.
(see the socket on the back of your Xbox to understand what a RJ45 looks like)
Patch cable is pin to pin - and is used with Hubs and switches etc.
Crossover cable has some pins crossed (hence the name) and is from attaching 2 PC's (or PC to Xbox) directly together.
You can check what you have by looking at the ends of the cable, hold the two ends up and compare them are they identical
- if so its patch cable and you will not be able to plug you PC directly to your Xbox (you will need 2 cabled and ahub)-
if some of the cables are moved its Crossover and you can.
Other than this they look idenitcal. In summary get a crossover cable if you can.
EVOX BOOT DISK
Download and burn the EvoX ISO disk - dont ask me where to get it- all the normal places.
Boot your xbox with this disk and check out the settings area - this is were you can set the static ip you want (note ensure you have STATIC IP -set to yes
And so with a Xbox booted with the Evox Boot disk, connected to your PC with the correct cable you are ready for...
*Welcome to the wonderful world of Xbox networking - class 101*
To understand Xbox/PC networking you need to think about PC networking a bit even if you know nothing about it - its
An IP address is execalty what it sounds like -its an address expressed as numbers - it identifies a device on a network
and allows you to contact it - there more to it that this but its this concept you need to understand.
There are 2 ways to get an IP address - Dynamically (DHCP) or statically,
This First option is called dynamic or DHCP because your IP may be different every time you switch the device on as it
gets the IP at that time from a selection of possible ones availible on the PC giving them out.
To get an IP you need a device that can assign them - makes sense you say - Xbox cannot assign IP's - it doesnt have the
ability as its not got the correct software. PC's can do it but they need to be setup correctly for this (- its easy).
Personally I dont use dynamic IP's on my Xbox as I like to know what IP it has everytime and I find it easy to setup so I suggest you stick to static by setting it on you Evox Dashboard and on your PC to be the same all the time.
WHAT IP ADDRESS TO USE ?
No two devices can have the same IP on the same network - if they did how would you know which was which - they have to
be different But they have to be able to "see" each other and to do this you need to have the same subnet - WTF is a
Basically - (v basically- please forgive me networking gurus out there) just make sure the first 3 numbers (called
octets) are the same but the last number is different.
e.g These are good example of 2 IP's on the same subnet - I use this at home. I wont go into why this is a good IP
address but you can use anything as long as its under 255.
Your Xbox has 3 setting on it on Evox so in this case
Xbox- IP - use 192.168.0.2
Default gateway - us the PC's IP so 192.168.0.1
Subnet - 255.255.255.0 - dont ask just do it
The PC needs have the IP set on the network setting (in control panel) on the TCP/IP setting.
PC - IP 192.168.0.1
subnet 255.255.255.0 - same as Xbox (always)
Once this is done the PC and the Xbox are "on the same Network" if you like and should be able to see each other.
(((You may need to reboot both PC and Xbox)))
Using a FTP program (flashFXP or CuteFTP etc) connect to the Xbox using its IP (192.168.0.2) and the username xbox and
password xbox and there you go. you can see the drives on the Xbox - now you have to figure out what you want to do and
not mess your xbox up. Award yourself a MCSE in networking and smoke a fat one.
just incase any1 wants it
pin colour voltage/function
1 yellow +12v 1.2A
2 red +5v 13.2A (total)
3 red +5v
4 red +5v
5 orange +3.3V 4.8A
6 purple 3V SB (standby voltage)
7 black gnd
8 black gnd
9 black gnd
10 black gnd
11 green power on
12 grey power ok
pretty much same as appears on a standard atx connector (but different shape) APART from purple wire is usually 5V SV, not 3V
any1 shed any light on this ?
i couldnt find a ready made bootable floppy image that included the hdd unlock tools in a quick search so I made one and here it is
use in conjunction with the xbox scene tutorial
you can write this to disc with the shareware winimage program
I just wanted to note that I have updated this article with an Advanced section, that has some useful off-beat help and suggestions that everyone can benefit from. Hope this helps out.
X2 Lite with Cromwell v1.8 Flashing Procedure
Follow these instructions on how to flash an X2 Lite thats preloaded with Cromwell v1.8 bios.
-First of all you will need two CDRW's that your Xbox can recognize. I recommend using verbatim 650mb CDRW or Sony 650mb CDRW both of these have worked fine for me.
-Second you will need the OZX Flash software. Download off of our site.
-Third you will need X2 Bios Manager and the 256kb bios you want to flash onto the X2 Lite.
Open X2 Bios manager and import the same 256kb bios image you want to the 4 banks (256, 512, 768, 1024) You can add 2 different bios to X2 Lite also by adding the first 256kb bios to the first 2 banks (256, 512) and then adding the second 256kb bios to the last 2 banks (768, 1024). Once you have imported the bios images to the banks select the SAVE icon on top to save the image as "bios.bin". This will save the 1mb bios image you need to flash the X2 Lite.
Burn the ozxflashcd.iso to the first CDRW with Nero by "creating cd from an image file". Burn the bios.bin onto second CDRW with Nero as a "Data CD".
Install your X2 Lite and pull the flash protection jumper off.
Boot the Xbox console up. You will see the Cromwell v1.08 screen and your DVD tray will open.
Insert the first CDRW that contains ozxflash. The Xbox will read the CD and load ozxflash software.
Wait a minute and let it load the Linux software from the ozxflash. Follow the directions on the screen, at one point it will eject the tray and ask you to insert the cd containing the bios.bin, insert the CDRW with the bios.bin and let the Xbox close the tray on its own.
Linux will find the bios.bin on the CDRW and start to initialize the flashing procedure. "DO NOT TURN OFF OR EJECT THE DVD TRAY" You will see the erasing procedure start and then the flashing procedure. Linux will then eject your DVD tray so you can remove the CDRW and shut down your Xbox console.
Reboot the Xbox console with the new bios on the X2 Lite.
