The big question is if MS actually brought the reset strobe line out from the CPU itself. Given that they didn't want the CPU reset, this is unlikely (but still possible).

The Eject switch seems to work via a maskable interrupt, since a hung processor defeats it.

It wouldn't be too difficult to find this out as the lines are pretty well documented from the CPU (thanks Intel!).

If were were -REALLY- lucky there would be a set of jumper holes on the boards that when bridged force a reset. The actual reset is normally isolated by a debounce circuit of some form.

In turn this could be wired up for a -SAFE- remote reset.

Hmmm... I don't have any Xboxes to mod at the moment but I may check into this on the next one I'm tasked with.

i kno, i mean split the xbox's reset button, but that wouldnt be neat, you'd need a custom cable, or sacrifice a controller for its cable to it looks good. But it would be a nice mod.

I saw that you PM'd me today, I responded and let you know that I am not the one who was selling the switches. Go back through the thread and find out who is the right person ask.

Back off GTac01! I was not the one wanting the switch, I didn't know who was selling them, why should I have to go back through the thread to find out who the right person was? He was the one asking, he can go back through and find the right one! Besides, I didn't tell him to search the "forum", I said search the "thread", big difference.

I'm not sure to laugh or not. I'm repulsed, yet snickering. I'm going to hell.

All I can say is man this mod is sweet. I modded my official xbox mem card (which i never used that came with the package, now finally got a good use of it). I used the switch from a mad catz ps1 mem card. I used the solder to make a small hole on the top similar to Ferrel.

Thanks Gunr for discovering this mod. Now I can sit back relax and do everything on the controller.
