Newbie Chat / Hole In Top Of Xbox, Under Jewel
« on: March 07, 2006, 05:49:00 PM »
I have just successfully de-painted my jewel and now I gotta put the jewel back in. What is the best way to cut through? I only have a dremel and cutting through the metal will be a problem, so can I just take the metal sheeting right off? Sorry for n00bness, but i'm learning!  smile.gif

Xbox Case/Hardware modding / My Canada-themed Xbox
« on: March 10, 2006, 10:04:00 AM »
Well, it's underway! MY Canada-themed Xbox is in it's first stages. I'm waiting to softmod it with Krayzie's Ndure Installer hack, but I need to wait till I get my Xbox to USB connector. In the meantime, I've polished the jewel, and made an Xbox to USB dongle (pics at bottom) to use my controller on the PC.

I'm basically just doing things to teach myself different techniques, and I'm uber bored till I can softmod. So I will start with aesthetics while I wait.

By the way, it isn't a PC mod but an Xbox is very similar to a PC, does it still count? Cool

I haven't taken too many "in the works" pictures because I'm lazy, but after the want list I'll post pics of what I've done so far, nothing too drastic with school taking up all my time.

Red and White paintscheme (given)
Window Mod in top of Xbox
Lighted Jewel, Red of course Smile (LEDs or cathode, still deciding)
4 Controllers painted to color scheme (over time)
Painted Harddrive and DVD-ROM ???
LEDs in all controller ports
Red and White Underglow
Two 80mm fans with red and white cathodes.
DVD + HDD Window ???

Now for the internals:

Replace hdd with new 250 GB hdd
Softmod w/ Krayzie's Ndure Installer (Waiting for Xbox -> USB dongle.
New Dash (reccomendations?)
Hide IDE cable

I hope you guys will help me through, I'm fairly new although reading all sorts of topics and shit on Xbox Scene has really taught me a lot!

Now for pictures:

1) Here is the top of the Xbox when I first started cutting it out.

6) A mod my dad helped me with, he's really good at soldering stuff! That is a USB coming out the top, picture got cut off. It is fully functioning on my computer!

I have a few more little projects to do while waiting for my modified dongle to arrive. Here's the top of a controller I painted red. That hole lights up, but it isn't the actual X. I have an Xbox "X" logo i cut out of cardboard that goes between that hole and the jewel, it just isn't on there.

I have a full day off school today and nothing to do. What do you guys reccomend i do on my xbox today?
