Step 3: Soldering the Cable

Soldering is generally pretty straight forward.  You actually don't need any solder for the motherboard end, as the holes all have solder in them.  So you just need need to heat it up and slide the wire through.  I suggest using at least a 30w iron as a 15w will have trouble getting the lead free solder hot enough.  All resistors on the connector are optional, it's just to prevent damage as some ports are 5v and the motherboard is 3.3v.

Here are some bigger pictures
All others

Recently there has been a new way to wire Xenons that is supposed  to be better, I have never tried it but I have included the diagram on how to wire it.

<p>Two questions related to the LPT requirement: </p><p>First Can the LPT port have to be embedded or can it be done through a USB to LPT interface?</p><p> Second Can the LPT port on the computer's side be switched/substituted for an MCU (Micro Controller Unit like Arduino UNO or MakeBlock Orion) that interfaces between the LPT cable and the computer?</p>
i can't install porn95nt.exe, it says incompatability with x64 bit verson of windows 7 (i did change the compatability to Windows xp service pack 2)
<p>Wait.....Porn? WTF</p>

<p>Is there a way to mod Xbox 360 S without using a devkit? Could you use a jtag? I can't seem to find any tutorials on how to jtag a xbox 360 s. </p>
<p>I just don't want to tear my Xbox apart and figure out it doesn't work I: </p>
<p>Also the last xbox I owned got red ring of death and I took it apart to try to fix it and it broke completely. Yeah, it still worked a little bit even though it had the red ring.</p>
<p>This would be simpler is I still had my old xbox 360 because it was like the one in the instructions I:</p>
<p>This is cheating. FYI you could be banned for this if caught BTW. </p>
<p>and since its cheating you can literally unban yourself so i dont see your point</p>

<p>Can i do it on Dashboard: 2.0.17489.0?</p>
<p>I have Dashboard:2.0.17489.0</p>
My Kernel is higher I think, so does this mean I can't jtag or anything at all?
<p>Okay so this is really complicated... Can anybody do it for me? I'll pay... </p>
<p> I need some clarity here. Obviously this set up does not use an External Nand Reader-just a software program. I like that, however, is it better or more efficient to buy an external nand reader? I don't know if the cheapy Nands are fine with the USB port connections, or if I would need the way more expensive Nand-X? I would like to not spend $60-$90 on a Reader to do this project. Any thoughts here? </p>

<p>How do you put custom maps on games like Cod:WaW because i have been waiting to play with my friend on a custom map.</p>
<p>Hey is this all you need: </p><p>Parts<br>1x 25 pin d-sub connector Digikey # 225FE-ND<br><br>Digikey # AE9863-ND<br><br>3x 330 ohm resistors (only for Xenon motherboards)<br>Digikey # P330BBCT-ND<br><br>1x 1n4148 switching diode</p><p>Or do i need an actual PCB of ozmodchips like another board to stick onto the board? I did not know only a couple of resistors and diods can do the work. Can the console play games on official microsoft live servers then? or will it get a ban of xbox live?</p>

My Xbox is already tagged n it was working fine but the hard drive fell out. Iv put it back in but when its on its only bringing up the standard Xbox menu. Homebrew menu has gone and it's sayin no storage device found. I really want my games back!!! Can anyone help me please??!!
Can someone post the file download as the link has been deleted
So what are the opus CB's? Or are all of them exploitable?
Could somebody please repost the first lot of files as they have been deleted from Mediafire. Thank you.
will 2.0.16203.0 work?
I am selling my NAND-X Xecuter (used once) for best offer. Contact me if you're looking to JTag your Xbox.
I NNNEEEDD help cause when i putted black ops 2 in my jtag it broke it and i dont know what to do ... <br>
Thanks for the tutorial, although jtag'ing is outdated now. Reset glitch hack can work on any console although it is more expensive to pull off. At <a href="www.jtagxbox360.net" rel="nofollow">jtag xbox 360</a> there pritty cheap but still...
does this work for 2.0.15574.0
my computer won't let me use port95 i have 64 bit but i don't know which compatibility to change it to
so um nvrmind figured out the compatibility doesn't work still though <br>
hey how do i change its compatibility
is this undetectable???
no, if you go online with it you will get banned within the first hour, its for offline use and system link only. its worth it if u host cod lobbies
anyone mind telling me how i find out whether my xbox is a zephyr, falcon, jasper etc.
Will this work for K 2.0.15574.0 (BK 2.0.1888.0)?
