Locating the LPC port and d0 point.
The following picture shows the location of the LPC port on the top
side of the motherboard.
The picture below shows the location of the LPC port on the underside
of the motherboard.

Version 1.0 motherboards have solder in the LPC port whereas later
versions do not as shown in the picture below. The pink rectangle in
these pictures indicates the area of the LPC that is used by the Xenium.
You also need to locate the d0 point on your motherboard, there is
a d0 point located on both the top and bottom of the motherboard.
The location of the upper d0 point will differ for motherboard versions
1.0-1.2 and 1.3-1.5. The underside (and slightly larger) d0 point is
the same for all motherboard revisions. Either the upper or underside
d0 is needed for the installation of the Xenium, Team Xodus recommends
the underside d0 point for those who have limited soldering skills.
Upper d0 point on Version 1.0, 1.1, and 1.2 Motherboard.

Upper d0 point on Version 1.3, 1.4, and 1.5 Motherboard
Underside d0 point on all Version Motherboards.

Disclaimer
By purchasing a Xenium you agree that the usage of this product is
strictly your responsibility. Team Xodus is not responsible for any
damage or loss of data caused during the installation or use of the
Xenium.
The Xenium is designed for use as a development tool and is shipped
with blank bios banks so that the end-user can install their own
bios. The developers of the Xenium are aware that various hacked
bios versions are available that contain copyrighted Microsoft code
and can be used for piracy and in no way do we endorse or condone
the use of such biases. Our primary purpose for the development of
this device is to encourage users to exploit the full capabilities of their
console through the use of the legal Linux bios. For further information
regarding Linux on the XBox, we encourage you to visit
For more information please check out our website at
https://www.modchipstore.com/support


Make a copy of the bios file you wish to use and rename
this copy to BIOS.BIN.

Select a CD or DVD media compatible with your XBox’s
DVD-Rom.

Burn the BIOS.BIN file onto a CD, the following screenshots
show how to perform this in Nero Burning ROM.
In the Multisession tab ensure No Multisession is selected.

The Xbox uses a file system called XDFS, and if your disc is not compiled correctly it simply will not boot. The best tool for the job is Qwix v1.01 from Team Avalaunch. It’s the fastest and most compatible homebrew tool we’ve ever used for this job. Here is a quick and simple tutorial on how to create an XDFS iso from a dir of files.

First open Qwix –  Click on Create ISO and select Local Folder.

Xbox Version Detection v1.1.0 *BETA*
At this moment there are 8 main versions of Xbox.
The xbox v1.0 , v1.1, v1.2, v1.3, v1.4, v1.5, v1.6 and v1.6b.
It’s possible to have an idea of the version you have based on the serial# … but these checks are not (yet) 100% accurate.
If you want to know what version you have you will have to open your Xbox. If you want to put a modchip or flash TSOP in your Xbox later you will have to open it anyway.

 XBOX ERROR CODES- What they mean.

Solution XBOX ERROR CODES:

When you attempt to boot, a ‘you need service’ message comes up, and has a LED style number on thetop left hand corner. Here is what they mean.

Code Who sets it – Description

0 – any – No error (duh)

1 – bootldr – Unknown exactly, something to do with checking the motherboard

2 – bootldr – Eeprom check failed

3 – bootldr – ??/not used

4 – bootldr – Ram check failed

5 – kernel – HDD not locked (retail bioses require the hd to be locked)

6 – kernel – Cannot unlock HDD

7 – kernel – HDD timeout

8 – kernel – No HDD found

9 – kernel – HDD parameters (PIO/DMA/or size {debug}, certain size minimum is required for debug)

10 – kernel – DVD timeout

11 – kernel – No DVD Founnd

12 – kernel – DVD parameters (PIO/DMA)

13 – kernel – Dashboard launch fail (due to missing/bad key, or anything else that would prevent it from running) and the dashboard didn’t specify why it failed.

14 – dashboard – Error loading dashboard (dashboard generic error)

15 – – ??/not used

16 – dashboard – Other files to do with dashboard / dashboard settings (specific dashboard error)

17 – – ??/not used

18 – – ??/not used

19 – – ??/not used

20 – kernel – The dashboard was attempted to load and failed; It was a cold boot, and the dashboard didn’t specify why it failed, but it (for some reason) needed to be noted that the dvd passed the challenge/response authentication

21 – anywhere – This error says that the machine was booted to display a error, basically someone told the machine to reboot (or launch a xbe) with this flag, and the error code just means its been rebooted by the flag

How To Use WinRAR

All Bios and other files released by Xecuter are packed in RAR format. We see way too many people who have no idea how to unpack a RAR file so we felt it was best to do a quick tutorial. It is very easy and everyone should know how to use it as most files are the internet are packed in RAR or ZIP format. WinRAR is a powerful archive manager. It can backup data and reduce the size of files considerably, decompress RAR, ZIP, and other files downloaded from the Internet and create new archives in RAR and ZIP file format. You may use WinRAR for free, its trial version is available from this download page.

For the example in this tutorial we have used X3 Bios 1959 – we assume you have downloaded it already.

This link will give you what you need.  This is not our link, nor our site. Use at your own risk.

http://xbox.makii.pl/pliki/soft/EvolutionX_M8plus_Bios.rar

  • As of now, Microsoft is reportedly checking all system status and functions. This includes hard drive size and chips.  No xbox that has been modded can go online into xbox LIVE at this time. Thanks.  In the USA and Canada, Xbox LIVE is banning any user with larger than stock hard drives!!
     
     
     
    SONY also does not allow any HDD bigger than their 40 gb to go online

If the bios chip became flashed,etc.. and burned out, the easyiest way to fix it is to just swap the small , eprom chip in the aladdin.  See the small chip loacated inside the little sqaure box, that is it, it just pops in and out…so if you take one for a new one, and pop it in, it will be fixed, and you do not have to take the original chip out…. 

 

If you leave your router plugged in at all times, Microsoft has made a anoucement that they conduct random \”Upgrades\” and they ask to be able to access your xbox system.� If you let them, and the mod chip is on and or there, they can see it and ban you from live play. DO NOT leave the router in if you are not actually using the unit online

Yes, The aladdin has preloaded bios, there is no programming nor flashing needed on it.  It is loaded with the newest M8 bios set.

You can use a standard network cable to connect it to your hub.
or to connect it with a crossover cable directly to your computer.

What you need
First, you’ll need a flashcart. Either a standard one with flash memory (EZFA, F2A…), or one with external memory cards such as CF/SD/miniSD… (SuperCard, M3, GBA MP, EZ4…).

You’ll also need:

A PassMe (also known as SuperKey, SuperPass 1&2, Passkey, EZpass, Max Media Launcher…), FlashMe, or WifiMe
A DS
A memory card reader

Downloads and pre-made packages
If you are in a hurry and want to get started quickly, just grab dpgtools (or BatchDPG), one of the pre-made packages below (see the pre-made packages section), and start reading from section 5 of this tutorial

MoonShell 1.41, latest version, for all flashcarts, now with Dpgtools 1.1+1 now included (tool which converts videos to MoonShell’s native format, dpg):
zip

BatchDPG, a great alternative to dpgenc (from dpgtools) that makes much higher quality encodes:
Click here and download the Full version

AviSynth, needed by BatchDPG

.NET Framework 1.1 or higher, need by BatchDPG before running

Guide to using BatchDPG

Pre-made packages

These are for those who are impatient/newbies or just plain lazy, and just want to have a functional MoonShell and a nice skin without having to go through steps 2, 3 and 4 below. Please note that they are still customizable and you can change the skin, settings, etc. anytime:

MoonShell for GBAMP/AdMovie (see notes below)

MoonShell for M3 CF

MoonShell for M3 SD

MoonShell for Max Media CF

MoonShell for EZ-Flash 4 MicroSD (see notes below)

MoonShell for flashcarts (EZFA, F2A, etc): Special instructions: unzip, put media files in files_EXFS folder, run CreateNDSROM_for_EXFS.bat, then flash the newly created .ds.gba or .nds (depends on your flashcart).

The MacLike skin is included. All you need to do is download the correct zip file for your flashcart, unzip it to the root of your CF/SD, and that’s it.

If you use one of these packages, you can ignore section 2, 3, and 4 of this tutorial and hop on to section 5: MoonShell usage.

Notes for certain versions Straight from the Moonshell program.

for GBAMP/AdMovie – When other automatic execution BOOTROM exists, it overwrites.
for EZ-Flash4 – This cannot be written. The resume and bookmark cannot be used.
for Ewin2 – Requests the firmware version 1.90.
for MagicKey2-3 – Because the transfer rate is slow, DPG cannot be performed.
for NinjaDS – Because the transfer rate is slow, DPG cannot be performed.
Note: I do not own any of the noted carts, and will not be able to answer issues with the above noted.

Also visit The Official Website for news, older versions, a SDK, and more.

[edit]
Customize and install MoonShell
Start by inserting your CF/SD in your card reader and hooking it up to your computer (you don’t have to, but it does make things a bit easier). Then go where you extracted the MoonShell zip file, and launch Setup.exe:

Choose between Japanese and English here (and check the box to save the setting so it doesn’t ask you again next time), and press OK


Then choose the letter corresponding to your CF/SD, and press OK. You can also choose one of your hard disks (C:, D: etc.), and once Setup is done, copy the newly appeared files (BOOT_MP*.nds and the “shell” folder) on your CF/SD. Choose “EXFS for FlashCart” if you own an ordinary flashcart.

After pressing OK, you’ll have this:


This is the main interface. Let’s check it out part by part:


Start by checking these 6 boxes. It’s useful, and if you change your mind later you can just delete the extra files from the “shell” folder).


Check the box if you want to activate the clock plugin. It’s a clock that appears on the top screen when the DS in inactive (just like a screen saver). Use the drop-down list to choose the type and style of the clock.

This drop-down list determines the type of character encoding MoonShell uses. Especially useful if you listen to music with tags in other languages, such as Japanese, Korean, Chinese… Leave the default setting if you don’t know what this is for.


Here, check the box corresponding to your linker in the “Rom image” section, and uncheck the others. This should be straightforward.

When you’re done, click the Setup button.

An nds file and a “shell” folder will appear on your CF/SD. Before closing itself, setup will ask you if you want to edit the global.ini file. See below for more details on this file.

– shell: This folder contains a file called global.ini. This file is used to pass configuration options to MoonShell, and you should have a look at it. The file is self-explanatory, just open it up in a text editor, and everything is explained inside.

In the directory where you extracted the MoonShell zip, there is a folder called misc, which contains another folder called “skins”.

– skins: As you might have guessed, this folder contains skins for MoonShell. Each folder corresponds to a different skin. Look at the preview.png file (which is in each skin’s folder) to see what the skin looks like. Once you chose one, copy everything that’s in the folder and paste in the “shell” folder of your CF/SD. If you did things correctly, you should get a message asking you if you want to overwrite some files. Say Yes.

If you downloaded a skin from the Internet, the procedure is the same. Copy all the .bmp and skin.ini to the shell folder.


Now, let’s feed some media to MoonShell.

You own an ordinary flashcart (EZFA, F2A…)
With this kind of flashcart, you are limited to 30Mb of data (mp3/dpg/jpg…). Once MoonShell is extracted and customized ( see 2- ) put your media files in the files_EXFS folder (if you can’t find it, it means you haven’t run Setup.exe yet), then run CreateNDSROM_for_EXFS.bat. This batch file will create a _BOOT_MP_EXFS.ds.gba. Just flash it and use it.

[edit]
You own a GBA MP, an M3 CF/SD, a SuperCard CF/SD, an EZ4…
Once MoonShell is extracted and customized ( see 2- ), just copy your mp3, dpg, jpg and other files to your CF/SD, and run MoonShell on your DS. As opposed to an ordinary flashcart, there is no limit to the total size of the media (except the size of your CF/SD).

 

[edit]MoonShell usage

(BlueMoon skin)


In the current version 1.41 (at least on the SuperCard) it is normal to see an error screen, but don’t worry it goes away.

Once MoonShell is launched, on the bottom screen you’ll see the date and time (or even more, depending on your skin and global.ini), and on the top screen, there will be a file navigator. Using MoonShell is pretty straightforward: choose the file you want to read with the D-pad, press A to read it, and B to stop/go upwards in the folder tree.

X raises the volume, Y lowers it (0% to 400%), L pauses the video/song, and R is used to play the next song/video/picture. The D-Pad and stylus are used for the rest.

If you touch the bottom screen, it will exit full screen and switch to the touch screen and play the scene with a menu in which you can seek the frame to watch.

 

[edit]Converting videos with BatchDPG
BatchDPG is a much better alternative to dpgenc. Among other enhancements, we have the possibility to create a list of videos to convert, significantly better video and audio quality, and the ability to add external subtitles to the video.

See this guide for how to use it.

 

[edit]Converting videos with dpgenc
BatchDPG is a good alternative to dpgenc. See section 7 for more information.

Note: I currently use BatchDPG, and do not have many answers for dpgenc (dpgtools).

Run the dpgenc.exe executable from where you extracted dpgenc. You’ll have this:


The first thing you will want to do is change to the desire language (In this photo, I have already done this step). Click on the Language tab.

Next you will want to adjust your Options to your desired settings. Click on the Option tab.


Let’s see this part by part:


– Drop-down menu: Method of video detection. Three choices here, auto detect. If that doesn’t work, try the other two.


– Sampling rate: Sound quality. The higher the better, but only one setting is available: 32000.

– Bitrate: As above, sound quality. The higher the better. 128kbps or 96kbps seem to be a good setting.

– Volume: Lets you add some sound volume.

– Drop-down menu: Method used to extract the sound track of the video. Many methods are available: mencoder, ffmpeg, extractwave or emuxed file. Use mencoder or ffmpeg.

 


– Pixel format: Four choices. RGB18 default, RGB15 for speed, RGB21 for quality, and RGB24 old version default.

– Video width: Self-explanatory. The maximum setting is 256 (horizontal resolution of the DS screen). The lower the setting, the smaller the video, and the uglier the video when stretched out to fill the whole screen. Use 256!

– Video Aspect ratio: Self-explanatory: 16/9 (movie), 4/3 (TV), 1:2.35(CinemaScope) or auto detect.

– Video Bitrate: Self-explanatory. The higher the setting, the better the quality, and the larger the video. Avoid using high settings, or else the video won’t be smooth (with a sort of black fuzz when a character is moving) and the video might even stop for a few seconds if there is too much action on the screen.

– Video Framerate: Same advice as above. 18fps seems to be a good setting for some anime or a TV show (4/3). You can use higher settings for a movie (16/9), with 24 or 25fps (keep in mind that it’s useless to put a higher framerate than the original video). If you get some black blur when there is lots of action on the video, lower this setting.

– Video Brightness: Self-explanatory. The higher the brighter. Only use if your videos are too dark or bright on your DS.

– Blur: The more the cursor is on the left, the blurrier the video. 95% is a good setting, as it removes most visible image compression.

– Flip video: What’s this for? I don’t really know. Maybe it’s useful if you have a matrox G400, or if you want to watch movies with the DS upside-down

– The last line: Lets you customize mencoder’s commands and switches. You shouldn’t modify this, unless you want to add some filters or switches. If you’re interested in this, first read mencoder’s manual.

Once you’re done adjusting your settings, press Apply.

 

Next you will want to adjust the output path.

ow you are ready to drop in videos to convert. Once you drop in the videos, the conversion process starts.

 

 

Here are TheSticks suggestions on settings for Dpgtools:

– Anime (4:3) ~23min, AVI (Xvid+MP3): The conversion speed is about 23fps on my Pentium M 1.3GHz. I get a 55Mb dpg with good quality (sound and video), no black blur when there’s motion. However, when there’s lots of action on the screen, the video freezes for 1 or 2 seconds.

– Movie (16:9), live action, ~2h, AVI (Xvid+AC3): The conversion speed is about 35fps on my Pentium M 1.3GHz. I get a 266Mb dpg with good quality (sound and video), no black blur when there’s motion. No video freezing here.

 

[edit]Image Thumbnails
Version 1.3 introduced a thumbnails system:


To use this, first put the images you want to see on your DS (and that you want thumbnails for) in an empty folder. Then go to the folder where you extracted MoonShell, and you’ll find an executable called CreateThumbnail.exe. Run it, choose an image from the folder you just created, and press OK. The program will create thumbnails for all the images in the folder in a _THUMBNL.MSL file. Just copy the folder on your CF/SD, and you’re done.

You may also modify the options in CreateThumbnail.ini (which appears after the first time you run the CreateThumbnail program) and global.ini to tweak the color depth and miniature sizes.

(I personally have not tried this thumbnail feature yet)

 

Solution
converting videos to .DPG format with BatchDPG for view using Moonshell. The parts input and buttons are based on the documentation part of LS5’s BatchDPG site. I just simply made it simpler for those that did not get it in the first place.
What is needed:

AviSynth
.NET Framework 1.1
BatchDPG 1.2
Any sort of video
You can download BatchDPG 1.2 (an improved version made by Firon) at http://utorrent.com/BatchDPG_v1.2.7z

If you used an old BatchDPG version, make sure that you delete BatchDPG.ini before running!


Download it, extract it to any folder (WinRAR can open 7-zip files), and run BatchDPG_v1.2.exe. You’ll be greeted by a nice and simple menu.

 

Input

Media file: Where you pick the file to convert to watch.
Subtitle file: If your video has an external subtitle file, BatchDPG can also incorporate it. But at the moment, it only takes SRT, SSA and ASS files (No, not that type of ass).
Helpful tip: If you have embedded subtitles in an MKV or OGM, you’ll need to extract them by using VirtualDubMod, opening a video in it, clicking on Streams -> Streams List, clicking the text stream, and hitting Demux. Save it somewhere.

 

Output

Temp dir: This is where all the temporary files during converting are placed. I recommend making a folder called “temp” in your BatchDPG installation path and selecting that. If nothing is input, the source folder will be the temp folder by default.
Output file: Where the converted .DPG file sits in wait once it is done converting.


Video

FPS: The framerate of the video. You can only use whole numbers meaning no decimels are allowed. By default, it is set to “auto.” Auto picks bad framerates for some content, so I suggest manually changing the FPS depending on the Width and Height.
Suggested FPS settings:
256×192: 15
256×144: 18
256×112: 20
256×96: 22
Profile: If you pick VeryHigh, it will give you the absolute highest quality, and significantly smaller filesizes than all the other profile. If you pick the Low, it will give roughly the same quality as DPGTools.
Width & Height: Basically, you can set the width and height of the outputted video in pixels. BatchDPG automatically finds these numbers, except in a few cases where it doesn’t and asks for a manual input.
Bitrate & Max Bitrate: A higher number results in a better quality video at the cost of size. The bitrate is variable so you will often the encoder will use more or less bits for scenes that need it to improve overall quality. I recommend setting the bitrate to 256 if using the VeryHigh profile for all types of encodes, since you will typically end up with actual average bitrates much lower than that (160-180). Set max bitrate to 384. Try not to set Max bitrate higher than 384, since higher than that may cause skipping and won’t really improve quality.
Passes: This option lets you use multiple encoding passes to potentially improve video quality. However, this typically does not improve quality and simply makes encoding take longer, and make the video somewhat larger. This CAN help to improve quality (and possibly reduce skipping) in videos that have extremely high amounts of motion and skip in Moonshell. It may also help in very low-bitrate encodes.
KVCD Matrix: This option will reduce filesizes and improve quality slightly with little to no cost in encoding time. This should always be checked.

Audio

Bitrate: Everything about video bitrate applies here in audio as well except for the fact that the bitrate you choose for audio is constant, not variable.
Samplerate: The DS can only take on 48000Hz in Mono, so use 48000Hz for Mono and 32000Hz for Stereo.
Mono: It helps to lower filesize by letting you use a smaller audio bitrate without sacrificing much quality.
Joint Stereo: Improves quality significantly for stereo mode, allowing you to keep the bitrate low without sacrifing quality. This is preferred over Mono.
Normalize: Normalizing raises the volume of the audio to the highest possible level without losing quality. I recommend using this option.
Helpful tip: If your file has multiple audio tracks, install Haali Media Splitter with MKV, OGM and MP4 support, open Haali’s properties (Start -> Haali Media Splitter, Media Splitter settings), click Options -> Languages -> Audio language priority, and input the preferred language in the box: eng for English and jpn for Japanese.

 

Other

After encoding: Self-explanatory
Process priority: It only affects Mencoder if you decide to use it. Basically, if you set it to low, it will use less of the computer resources so other programs do not lag as much, and vice-versa. Note that this option will not work if using multi-pass encoding.

Steps to Watch Video With Moonshell

1. Convert video
2. Place anywhere in your SD card. ( I made a folder called Media )
3. Open up Moonshell and browse to the folder you made with the video.


Helpful Moonshell Video Buttons

1. Pressing Y will lower the volume, pressing X will raise it. Volume ranges from 0% to 400%. Raising this too high beyond 100% may make it sound bad.
2. Pressing R will skip to the next video, or if you have just one video, reset it to the start.
3. Pressing L will pause the video.
4. Holding Pause will give you a debug menu.
5. If you touch the bottom screen, it will exit full screen and switch to the touch screen and play the scene with a menu in which you can seek the frame to watch.


FAQ

Conversion errors:

If you ever have any conversion errors, I would recommend getting a few extra codecs for both the audio and video. I recommend getting the K-Lite Full Codec pack and picking the default settings as that seems to fix most of the conversion problems.

 

Video skips slightly:

Open your “global.ini” in the Shell folder of MoonShell with Notepad and edit the following – Dithering=1 / GOPSkip=1 and replace the 1’s with 0’s. Also, if the video bitrate and frame rate is too high, it may cause more in-video skips. You can also play around with the AdaptiveDelayControl. What it does if set to 1 is focus mainly on video and sound sync and if set to 0, focus solely on video. I recommend setting it to 0 if you watch animation and 1 if you watch normal shows.

Introduction
There are many FAQs regarding the adjustment of PS2 Laserunits (LU), as Sony seems to adjust ´em
too careful, so the LU has a greater life expectance, but the PS has difficulties reading some DVDs or
gamediscs (backups ?).
Most of the answers give advice to screw a little bit on the laserpots, but that´s a real nerve wrecking
way of getting your PS to work.
This reworked and rewritten tutorial gives explanation to properly adjusting the LU.
There also seems to be a problem with some batches of PS2 – the LU dies and the PS2 can´t read DVDs

and/or CDs anymore. Fortunately there are some vendors selling refurbished or new laserunits – the
problem is that in most cases you have to replace the unit yourself. The explanations and aproaches
given in this tutorial are meant as a help performing this task.
2. Tools of the trade
For plain adjustments:
1. Oscilloscope (at least 20 Mhz bandwidth!)
2. 10:1 Scope testprobe with clamp
3. a set of presicion screwdrivers (like the ones for repairing clocks)
4. Philips screwdriver (for removing the PS2 cover)
5. your PS2 utility disc (Jap model) / demo disc (Eur model) or any other PS1 gamedisc and a
DVD movie
6. knowledge on how to use that stuff … (esp. the oscilloscope !)
optional:
small piece of thin, isolated wire, solder wick and a solder iron

Fig. 1: Oscilloscope

Fig. 2: probe with ground-clamp

For replacing the laserunit:
1. precision height gauge (German: ,,Schieblehre” or ,,Mikrometerschraube”)
2. TORX T06X40 screwdriver
3. precision screwdriver size 1
4. screw securing lacquer (Loctide screwfastener)
5. solder iron and desolder wick or desolder pump

optional:
some insulation tape
Fig. 3: tools for laserunit replacement
If you don´t have one of the tools above (esp. the scope and probes ) ask somebody who can lend it to you (TV repair shops ..), if you lack of [6 knowledge] then ask somebody who´s familiar with this
(again TV repair shops…) ;)!
3.
Disassembling the console (Bringing the console into service position)
Note:
If you disassemble and modify your PS2 you will lose warranty.
The following procedures should only be done by skilled persons with the console unplugged from
the mains. If you aren´t sure if you can do this ask somebody who´s familiar with this kind of
work !!!
Furthermore be extremely careful while doing the adjustments as there are no spare parts !!! 🙁
a) SCPH 10000
1. Remove the bottom and top cover by removing the screws under the small plastic/rubber pads.
2. Remove the metal rfi-shielding at the bottom (pcb) side.
3. Unplug the flat wire band from the drive connector by lifting off the clamping bridge (carefully!!!)
4. Turn the machine around and dismount the drive by removing the two screws holding it.
5. Turn the machine back to the bottom side and plug the wire band back to the connector.
6. Place the drive that you can access the drawer, without bending the flat wire band (I put it on the
pcb, isolated with a sheet of paper and ,,up-side-down” to get access to the adjustable resistors).

b) SCPH 30004
1. Remove the EXPANSION BAY cover and the warranty-void-sticker (don´ t need it any more 😉 )
Fig. 4: Expansion Bay
2. Remove the bottom and top cover by removing the screws under the small plastic/rubber
pads.(Sorry no pictures, yet)
3. Remove the screws holding the rfi-shield and the metal base plate first, then the shield and plate
Fig. 5: Cover sheets

4. Unplug the silver ribbon cable (drive unit connector) and the Expansion Bay connector (Be very
careful !!!). Lift off the metalsheet on it´ s left side.
Fig. 6: disconnecting the drive
5. Turn the machine around (to top side) and dismount the drive by removing the two screws holding it.
Get the drive unit out of the console (make sure you´ ve disconnected it in step 4 !!!)
Fig. 7: cd/dvd drive top side

6. Turn the console again upside down. Lock the black isolation sheet in position with a small strip of
power-strip (Tesa) – this is important as the silver ribbon cable is conductive on its surface! Place the
drive upsidedown on the Expansion Bay spacers and the mainboard´ s left side. Reconnect the silver
ribbon cable.
Fig. 8: service mode setup

4.
Adjustment
Adjustment´s basically the same for all model types, only the the testpoints differ.
Connect your probe to the TP and GND. I soldered a small piece of wire to the pad and connected the
probe via the clamp, this is safe and replaces the ,,third hand” you would need to hold the probe while
adjusting the laser and holding the drive. Set your oscilloscope to 20mV/Sect. and 0.2us/Sect.
SCPH 10000
Fig. 9: SCPH-10000 (Jap) test pin

Fig. 10: SCPH-30004 (Eur) test pin
SCPH 30004
Performing the adjustments
Power up the PS2 and insert the PS2 utility disc.
You should now see the ,,eye-pattern” signal (as below) on your scope. Wait until the disc is
completely booted to get a stable picture on your scope.
Fig. 11: perfect test signal

Turn the resistor marked `CD` clockwise until you get the maximum undistorted ,,eye-pattern”
(if you want more safety and a longer life of your laser then turn back a bit so the laser doesn´t
run at full power).
SCPH 10000
SCPH 30004

If you get a distorted signal just turn back a bit until it becomes stable and clear !
Fig. 12: distortet test signal (see the flattened top !)
Ok, now the CD section is adjusted so replace the utility/demo CD with the DVD and reset the console.
Now do the same adjustments as above but use the variable resistor marked ` DVD` this time.
Safe values (tested on Jap model only!) :
Mode
DVD
CD
Oscilloscope setting
20mV / 0.2us
20mV / 0.2us
per Section
per Section
,,Eye-Pattern” signals´ amplitude (A) set to
800mV Vpp
640 mV Vpp
5.
Replacing the Laserunit
1. Disassemble the PS2 as described above.
2. Disconnect the silver ribbon cable from the drive (at the mainboard´ s connector),
dismount the driveunit by removing the 2 screws holding it
3. Remove the cover of the drive (4 screws) using the precision screwdriver
4. Turn the drive-unit upside-down
5. Disconnect the laser-unit connector (be careful – the ribbon cable is very sensitive !!)
Fig. 13: laserunit connectors
6. Push the white slider to the left in order to release the drawer
Fig. 14: tray lock slider

7. Pull out the drawer / tray completely
Fig. 15: drawer / tray bottom side
8. Turn around the drive again

9. Now´ s the tricky part:
Measure the height of the laserunit at the marked point using the precision height gauge.
Write down the measured value, this will be important later on !!!


10.Remove the marked screws, use the TORX screwdriver for the small screw adjusting the lu´ s height
11.Remove the laserunit by (carefully) pulling out the slider bars
12.Mount the white, plastic steering plate and the TORX screw to your new laserunit (sorry no picture,
yet!)
13.Reassemble the drive the reverse way.
14.Adjust the height of the laserunit to the drive you measured in (9)
15.Desolder the anti-statics protection pins (just remove the solder) on the lu´ s pcb
16.Remount the drive unit and reconnect it to the mainboard.
17.Adjust the laserunit electrically according to the adjustments-section
18.Reassemble your PS2 and have fun !!!

Nintendo Wii

You will only need two tools to take apart the Wii. The first is a small Phillips screw driver, which should be easy to locate. The second tool you will need is a Triwing driver. This type of driver is not very common and might take some phone calls or internet searches to locate. Ours was purchased off of Ebay several months ago to repair a broken Gameboy.

To disassemble:

  1. Flip the device upside down and remove the small silver Phillips screw. Once out, remove the battery tray from the console.
  2. Next remove the rubber foot directly above this battery tray. Also remove the three square white stickers from the bottom of the Wii. The rubber foot and the sticker are covering hidden screws. Figure 3 provides a shot of where these screws are located.

NOTE

Hiding screws under stickers and rubber pads is a common method used by electronics manufactures to help increase the aesthetics of their devices, as well as prevent people from easily locating screws and taking apart their products.

3. Unscrew the two Triwing screws and three Phillips screws from the bottom of the Wii.

Figure 3

4. Bottom Screws

5. Flip the Wii over onto its right side. Locate and remove the two rear rubber feet and the two rectangle stickers near the faceplate.
6. Remove the two silver Triwing screws in the holes and remove the two black Triwing screws on the faceplate (Figure 4)

Figure 4

Left side screw locations

7. Flip the Wii upright and carefully remove the two socket covers. They come right out with a little wiggling.
8. Remove the three black Phillips screws from the black plate (Figure 5). Note the one closest to the faceplate is the longest and will need to go back into that hole when putting the Wii back together.

Figure 5

Top black plate screw locations

9. With the screws removed, carefully pull off the faceplate of the front of the Wii. You will need to disconnect the red/black wire plug from the Wii to remove the faceplate completely. Figure 6 shows what is hiding under the faceplate.

Figure 6

Under the Wii faceplate

10. Remove black plate from memory/controller socket area.
11. Remove two silver Phillips and two silver Triwing screws from memory/controller socket area (Figure 7).

Figure 7

Topside screw locations

g
12. Lay the Wii on left side (with the ATI and Nintendo logo facing you) and slowly work the right side cover of the console off the device. This will take a little bit of force. If something appears to be stuck, double check to ensure you removed all the screws.
13. Locate and remove four screws holding DVD reader in place. Two are located in plain site in the middle of the unit. Two are located near the front of the Wii inside the DVD unit (Figure 8).

Figure 8

The insides of the Wii

14. Slowly tilt the DVD player upward toward top of Wii. There are two wires that need to be disconnected before you can safely remove the DVD unit. One is a plug type of connector that only requires a little tug. The other is a circuit strip connector that requires you to lift the brown catch, which will release the pressure holding the strip in place (Figure 9). Do not break this!

15. You can then access the Installation Canvas and proceed with your Wii Modification

Xbox 360 Disassembly for DVD drive removal

 

 

The first step to disassembling your Xbox 360 is to take off the Hard Drive by pressing the button and lifting it off the system.

 

 

Following that, set the system upside down and place your thumb in the memory slot holes and your fingers along the base of the system. You then pull the faceplate off with slow steady force. The piece should snap off without any problems.

 

 

 

Next, you will remove the Microsoft Seal and void your warranty.

 

Following the removal of the seal you will now need to place your system on its side and look closely at the holes on each side of the system. Certain whole are “filled in” and these filled holes keep the top and bottom pieces connected to the system.

 

Now, to remove the pieces you will need a small pointed object such as a very thin torque screw or a small screwdriver. You will now need to locate the plastic tabs within the wholes and push them in with your pointed object. Each piece has three tabs per side totaling 6 tabs for each piece. On the piece that holds the Harddrive, it can be easier to get the two tabs by going inside and pulling them out. (shown below) To remove the last top grey piece, you will need to remove the rubber pad covering the hole. Also, use a spare screwdriver or other object to hold up the popped tabs The process if fairly quick, but stay patient.

 

 

 

 

 

 

Next, after the pieces have been removed, look closely and you will see small notches on the left and right sides of the system. Once again, you will need a very narrow pointed object or screw driver to successfully complete this step. Now, starting on the side closest to the power input, push the screwdriver into the narrow space until you hear a click sound. After you have heard the click we suggest using another screwdriver or small object to keep the top and bottom of the system apart. After you have completed the clicks on the left side, (this may take a few tries) start on the other side and repeat the process.

 

 

 

Now that you have successfully finished this step, you should now easily be able to separate the bottom portion of the system. Keep this part separated and you can easily remove the 4 snap hooks on the other side of the system. After removing all the hooks you can lift away the cover of your system and begin the unscrewing process.

 

 

 

Now, using your size 8 torque screwdriver unscrew all the silver larger screws to be able to remove the cover. Next, flip over the system and remove the DVD arm and remove the top cover. Following this, disconnect the SATA connection and Power for the DVD to lift it out of the case.

 

 

 

 

 

You have now successfully removed your DVD drive from your Xbox and can now continue your disassembly or make the changes you need to to your DVD drive.

Reassembly is easy, just follow the steps in reverse.

PSP Products Help

How to detect if your PSP motherboard is TA-082 without voiding your warranty. Simply by looking inside your UMD Drive you can make sure that the U.P. is compatible with your PSP console.  The Undiluted Platinum PSP Mod Chip is not compatible with Motherboard TA-082 as of yet. If you check your PSP, and it has Matches the image below, then you have version TA-082. If that is the case, then please wait for a future release of the chip that will be compatible with your PSP, or installation diagrams compatible with that motherboard version.

 

Steps to install the Undiluted Platinum on your PSP


The Undiluted Platinum is available here.
The Undiluted Platinum installation packages are available here.
The Undiluted Platinum Premodified PSP is available here.


Precautions
1. Installation of the Undiluted Platinum is ONLY for skilled professionals. Attempting to install this product without thorough knowledge could damage the system, chip, and possibly the installer.

This is done by first fixing the stencil in place (as shown by the installation diagrams) and then scratching the solder mask off the PCB with a sharp tool using the edge of the stencil as a guide. This is the most hazardous part of the installation since it is possible to cause permanent damage to the PCB traces during this procedure. Great care must be taken not to apply too much pressure whilst removing the solder mask, otherwise, the traces can be damaged or even severed. Secure the stencil in place with hot glue. First position the stencil, then apply hot glue to hold it in place temporarily. Take care not to place glue over any surface mount components otherwise they may be damaged when the glue is removed.
2. Using a sharp tool such as a utility knife and the stencil as a guide, cut the PCB trace as indicated by the yellow spot on the installation diagram. Take care not to damage any of the adjacent traces! To verify that the trace has been severed perform a continuity test between points P and J as shown in the installation diagram. If the PCB trace has been severed the continuity test should fail.
3. Once the solder mask has been removed and the trace cut carefully removes the hot glue and then the stencil.
4. Affix the FPC cable in place (as shown by the installation diagrams) using glue or double-sided tape.
