Faq

F.A.Q.

Do I need a mod chip to play copied game or modify the xbox?
Yes, unless you do an exploit which are faulty.

Can I play online with a modchip?
Yes and no. You can go on XBox Live as long as your modchip is truned off.
You can however use Xbox Connect (XBConnect), or Game Spy with your modchip turned on, and you can play with your copies.

What is EvoX?
EvoX is the software you run on your XBox that allows you to FTP in and copy all the files off the game DVD. It also allows you to run back ups and other software from your XBox hard drive. Look at the sticky to learn how to set that up.

What kind of media can the XBox read?
All XBoxes can read DVD-R/RW DVD+R/RW. And most can read CD-RWs. The newer ones can read CD-Rs.

What kind of cable do I need to connect my XBox to my computer?
If you are going right from your XBox to your PC, you will need a crossover cable.
Or you can use two straight cables in with the use of a Hub, Switch, or Router.

What is the best modchip?
X2.x Lite is the most favored for those who can solder. XBIT is most favored for those who can't or would rather not, it fits without any problem in 1.0-1.6. Other chips are recommended by other people as well.

Can I use my Xbox HD on my PC after replacing it with a larger one:
Yes - but you need to have unlocked it first whilst it is installed in the xbox it came in - use the slayer CD

Note: - xbox HD's are only 8 to 10GB so most people would not bother using them when most PC sytsems are now sold with 40, 80 and 120GB drives.

How do I set up a larger HD for use in my Xbox:
1) Install the desired chip
2) Boot using the chip active and the slayer CD inserted
3) Unlock the original HDD (if you want to use it later in a PC)
4) FTP to the xbox to back up any saved games (skip this if it is a new xbox)
5) Remove HDD
6) Insert new HDD with its pins set to cable select
7) Boot using the slayer CD - format the HDD and install applications
8) Lock the HDD (if you would like to play via XBlive)

Can I just do a 1:1 copy with the dvd-rw drive in my PC?
No - Xbox games cannot be read in a PC. They are encrypted and burned in a different format. You must FTP the game files.

What must I do to backup my disks?
Well, it involves connecting to your xbox via ftp, and copying the game files directly off your xbox's DVD drive. Then either creating an xbox iso image to burn, or do a normal data burn (record now max is recommended). That is the only way to copy a disk.

Are there alternatives to using evox?
Yes - You can use other applications such as Media-x-Menu, Avalaunch, Unleash-X, Xbmp, or any other network supported dashboards. Most (if not all) of the above are skinable and some supported video/animated skins.

What is a dashboard?
It is the startup application that the xbox boots to when there is no disk present.


I've seen people with colored original ms dashboards, can I do that?

Yes - there is a group called tHc that managed to add skin support and hack the original dashboard. They have released their own versions. Great for modders. (does not/will never support FTP)

the only way to burn games is to ftp them over to a pc. Then burn them on a dvd disc. FTP means file transfer protocol, and it uses a crossover ethernet cable to do that. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/File_Transfer_Protocol this will inform you about ftp and how it works. since the xbox is basically an old x86 or something, its pretty simpl. It has IDE cables, built in ram, and the game controller ports are actually only usb ports, but in a different form. There is an easy way to do ftp with your xbox w/ out flashfxp or a program like that. Here is the link, http://www.xbox-scene.com/articles/ftp-ie.php

Another great site about xbox mods, game burning, etc.

http://xbox-scene.com/xbox-tutorials.php?p=0|#0

choose the first light green link, a beginners guide blah blah blah

if the link doesn't work, go to xbox-scene.com/xbox-tutorials.php

then choose Beginners/General Guides
then From Start to Finish: A Handguide to Successfully Running a Modded Xbox

the file will download a word file with a lot of useful information.
