My Monster Lives!
Posted 30 November 2004 - 07:26 AM
Well, as some of you know, i bought a broken xbox off ebay, no cables, no controllers, no freaking screws (not a joke) dvd drive was missing the top half, HDD was not the original.
So what do i do, i say F it, pulled my dvd-drive outta my pc, use superfro's tutorial to convert it to use with the xbox, order a Xecuter 3 so i can use any HDD i have laying around (yes i know no XBL, or well). And today when i get home from work my modchip and NAND gate are waiting for me.
So from 6 - 11:12 pm i spent my night soldering this monster together, and it freaking booted up and seems to recognize dvd and hdd. But i still dont have a controller to go any further (please dont laugh). Now all i need to do it get everything shoved back inside the box and i'm good to go...
Also, still have a problem with my dvd drive ejecting when i power the system off, lol.

Seriously though, i'm kinda surprised it all ended up working, lol

good work though! maybe you could also get a controller off ebay, it might not have any buttons but im sure you could get it to work!
EDIT: yes the other person was being sarcastic

I like the idea of buying ebay controllers, i could glue marshmellows in place of the buttons
Oh yea, i might buy one of those third party tops mark mentioned so i do have a real dvd drive
