Error 11 And Dvd Issues
Posted 21 October 2008 - 02:41 AM
What I have
- softmodded (font exploit) Xbox with XBMC on it
- it successfully boots to XBMC dash about 1/10 of the time I turn it on. Other attempts end up at Error 11. When it does load, it takes very long (say 60-90 seconds) to get to XBMC.
What I tried
- opened up the box, took out all cables connecting to DVD drive and reconnected, and even tried new IDE cable. No use.
My current guess is that there's a problem with the DVD drive itself and the machine refuses to boot without it. Is there any way that I'll be able to somehow bypass DVD drive check because I can still use Xbox for million things without DVD drive. If the procedure will let me use nothing but Linux, I guess that's better than nothing.
I have the ability to transfer files via FTP and run them. I wanna be able to do it without modchip and if possible, no soldering.
Any help would be appreciated. Thanks!

However .... notice that further on someone reckons that it fails, so you might have to do some fiddling to make it work.
Edit: But this one reckons that connecting pins 2 and 7 works.

I'll definitely be giving this a try and if it doesn't work out, I'll have to get a replacement drive like steveo1978 said, or look for a used box on the market
Any other suggestions would be great too. Thanks for the help.

But make sure you double check the connector orientation first.....!!

I was sorta randomly messing around plugging it here and there and ended up having burning smell and Xbox shutting off.
It still boots though (to error 11) so I'm hoping I can recover it
Could someone help me find out which ones I should connect based on this picture? Thanks.
Same question posted in that other thread.

If you continue trying to short the dvd drive you run the risk of trashing the pic16 chip and if that happens you will never get another dvd drive to work in the xbox if you are lucky.The worst case scenerio is the chip burns out completely and the xbox wont even boot to an error screen it will be in a coma.The pic16 controls all kinds of stuff outside the dvd drive including turning the mobo and psu on and off.It controls the fans some video selectors among other things.It is basically like a brain to it all.This was the part as well as the tsop that was replaced on the 1.6v version xbox.You can check the forums on the sickmods site to find more about the chip.

That said, I plan on picking up another Xbox used from a local store sometime. My question: will I need to softmod the new one I'll be getting again or will replacing the hard drive with the one I took from the dead one do the trick? (assuming it didn't die from electric shock as well)
If that doesn't work, is there a way to transfer whatever the softmod works on to the new machine? Obviously my knowledge on this stuff is pretty shallow.
Thanks for all your help.

It didn't work. Still showing error 12.........
Im obviously trying to avoid having to TSOP or flash my X2 BIOS as im not too confident about flashing.
Any updates chaps?
