    Info Original first ever xbox - help

    ok i recently bought one of the very first xboxes very cheap (£2) but it did not come with any controllers or video cable etc.

    once i get all them what is available to me regarding either flashing or chipping, does anyone have any chips still? I used to have a flash kit on disc and memory card but lost them years ago when moving.

    basically I am going to set up a gaming station and would like to get this up and running, any help appreciated as the last timew i flashed or chipped these would probably be in the year 2000!!!

    Try here matey. [Only registered and activated users can see links. ]
    I threw out a clear cased Xbox a few months back with a xecuter 2.6ce installed with the lcd and around 500 games too
    i did try to flog it on eBay but not even a £5 bid on it.

    You could soft mod it it to save the hassle.
    Loads of guides about on how to softmod.

    Yeah soft modding is by far the easiest.
    Number of methods.
    I remember doing one method where you needed a lego or indiana jones game , forget which. Also was one using Splinter Cell.

    You just load a game save onto a mem cart from your pc and load it using one of the certain games.

    I did love the Classic Xbox. If you get it working, make sure to pick up Oddworld -Strangers Wrath, best game on the classic by far and imho is still one of the best games made.
    It got a HD update on PC, Playstation but a falling out between MS and the Devs (Just add water) meant no Xbox Live release :-(

    I have a couple xboxes here soft modded you can have both for price of postage if you want - save you the hassle of sorting yourself?
    One crystal and a black one.
    Probs a pad or so and cables would need to check.
