Hi guys. I am looking to buy an xbox 1.6 eeprom. I dont know if it shouldnt be banned from LIVE because I have no intention of using the service. I just bought an old xbox 1.6 with no hdd so there is no way for me to get it running without a 1.6 eeprom. Dont want to bother with an eeprom reader. There may be the case where I wont get it to run even with a proper eeprom but I will have to cross that bridge when I get there. biggrin.gif

Am I going in the right direction here? If one of you guys can sell me a 1.6 eeprom can I use xboxhdm and/or configmagic to get my xbox working?

Please reply, PM or email me. Thanks.

I dont want a chip. I will go with a softmod so I need an EEPROM.

without a hdd you will have to go with a mod chip......the xbox will not boot the original bios without it

I might aswell. But HDD is not included. No cables either. Its just the box.

>>> SELLING XBOX 1.6 FOR S&R:
Contents include:
  • Motherboard
  • PSU
  • DVD (need to be jiggled to open)
  • Doesnt seem to be modded (I assume it has a valid eeprom - LIVE capable)
  • The case is a bit damaged. i dont know if it closes properly but it has all the nuts and bolts.
  • I could provide pics
  • This is how I bought the console. I have never seen it run but the selller assured me all it needed was an HDD and everything else was fine. I do not have the EEPROM.
  • Shipping to UK only.

I would prefer to get a "partial exchange". This is what I am looking for:-

>>> BUYING XBOX
WHAT IT MUST BE:
  • A normal xbox with all interal ORIGINAL components - it would be best if its never been opened (any version; preferably not 1.6)
  • NOT hard-modded (would except soft-mod, although I would like to do it myslef biggrin.gif)
  • 1 controller included (or more)

OPTIONAL:
  • Standart AV cables
  • DVD remote
  • Games/any hdd content
  • USB dongle
  • Works on LIVE
  • RF controller(s)
  • WIFI capable
  • External/internal moddifications (never opened box would be best)

DO NOT NEED:
  • Power lead
  • HD cables
  • Any mod-chips

Feal free to PM/email any offer even if it doesnt fit the above. I will reply to all.

Here is an example of what looks good to me. rolleyes.gif

To be honest I cant be asked to spend >$50 on something which can be done for free. Trying to revive this box with a modchip will set me back ~$50 and not to mention the fact that after modding my wii I realy hate soldiering. I know you are gonna say - get a soldierless install. That pushesh the price to $80 so its a giant NO. Not only that but the box doesnt exactly look like something I want other people to see - the damage on it is quite visible. biggrin.gif

The thing to do now is get an old unopened xbox of ebay from someone who has never heard of a mod (hard or soft) and set it up with a softmod. That way I get it all in 1 go for <$50.

P.S. Where are you from? If you cover the P&P I could still ship. Or maybe you want just the motherboard for the eeprom? Or some other part? Just say what you are after and I will see what I can do. Quid pro quo. wink.gif
