Sorry, but i feel i need to post this...pictures will follow my overview
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.
