first sorry for the bad english unsure.gif blink.gif sad.gif

take a vigin box(read new!!)

cut both power cables of your hard disc cut your cable of d0

you need a 3 port ide cable en extra power plugs.

put in a extra hard disc (leave the hd case out and place plasic between xbox en both hd's remove the metal upper case(the one in the top of the xbox) fixe both hd's( so yhat they stil can cool(like a stair)

take a switch for 3 switches.

switch up power to normal hd end NO d0

switch down power the extra hd with all thing like evox games etc. and switch on D0

Tried with 4 boxen with duo-x2 and all still running, this is only for 1 day(so what is 1 day sad.gif sad.gif )

Yes, this will work. It is one solution. But it introduces the hassle of having to swap you game profiles from one HDD to another. Not a huge hassle, but a hassle nonetheless.

Sry but can someone "translate" this for me? this could be the solution of the XBL banning problem. Use one unmodified stock hdd for xbl, one modded(XBL not installed) for homebrew. If there is nothing to find on that HDD, MS can do NOTHING.

i have try this and it looks to works fine, i have played a few games from original disc and large hd the switch turns the chip down because the d0 is gone so you can't go on live with large hd en the virgin disc is only for live. the theorie of te marriage and also the LPC (because i think that the chip can't be seen without d0)theorie are both in this hack, i dont know witch one save XBL but ik looks it works like a charm.. the 2 disc fith is verry close...But with some pressure its fits.

specs

1.6 xbox
duo-x2 chip
retail disc
200 gb maxtor disc
ide cable with for 3 ide
switch for 3

played: online and offline:
halo2
ninja gaiden
burnout3
gp2

so far no problems.

Tnx sjefke

ps. also no good english because i'am dutch

i've just take my "old" xbox with a new eeprom and a new hd (retail) it works fine, put the chip back (duo-x2) with a large hd and put in a switch(hd power and d0) same as above, it stil looks like that this is solving the problem, i don't know if its the easyst way but it seems to work (for now) played all games again from retail hd and large hd and i have no problem.

anyone can confirm this way if are there problems with this "hack" (the jenz hack)??

I can't reply all the complains from all the people witch xboxes that i have modded and want to be save..

specs

1.2 xbox
duo-x2 chip
retail disc

if i'm reading this right, this is the same idea i had on the 9th. not trying to take credit because i dont believe its the "cure all" and its just combining 2 mods together. here is the link plus i have a diagram.

if he is talking the same thing that i am, then you would take a 3 pole double throw switch. on one side you would wire the d0 point from the chip, as well as the red and yellow wire from the modded drive. the center post would have the d0 point to the motherboard and the red and yellow wires to the psu. on the last pin you would just have the red and yellow wire going to the stock drive.

when you switch one way, you enable the d0 and mod drive. switch the other way you disable the d0 and enable the stock drive. this would work under the "marriage" theory.

although if dzv is on with the lpc scan idea, then it wont. but remember, you have to start with a virgin box, or one that doesnt have a modded drive yet and isnt banned.

here is the link to the thread i had.

Is the "Jenz/Mrjkwik Hack" the same... if so, i'm assuming this alleviates the lpc port which i have definitely concluded from a anti-marriage theory test, is the culprit.

I think I understand Mrjkwik's post much better than Jenz, so if this is correct, is the term for the part technically called the "three pole double throw switch"

This looks hot, i'm betting in combinations with a marriage theory = new eeprom, new gt, new hdd, it will work. I'm definittely about to try it. I'd absolutely post results.

Please update frequently on your status

edit: damn sure looks like a cure all based upon lpc problems, least till they start scanning hard drives for space definitely for files maybe.. think that makes sense

edit2: forgot to give my specs
v1.0
160 gb drive
slayer stealth 2.6
xenium ice solderless - lpc port adapter
banned originally, with some dirt on E:
eeprom with cleaner but still dirty E: accident
banned 8 hours or less early (slept a bit)_
gave up, bought used blockbuster console

I'm so excite if this hack fixes it, even for just a few months

by the way I would just run the second external if possible, or both, no more cutting on my poor case you know

no prob.

yes, i believe my explanation and jenz is essentially the same. just as he stated, "bad english". no offense.

there has been nothing to support whether this truly safeguards or not, but is just an extra step of precaution if you are gonna have a dual drive set up.

i've had other ideas, just not sure how they all work. if i get some of them ironed out and think they'll work, i'll add them in. for now, i dont wanna state 1/2 truths and "unknown facts".
