Anyone know how to install a LCD?

Postby UnicornMonkey » Fri Apr 21, 2017 12:49 am

Does anyone know how to install a lcd on a tsop flashed Xbox? I am thinking about this LCD (https://www.crystalfontz.com/product/cf ... splay-20x4). I would prefer to do one without a mod chip as it's cheaper and better with a V1.0 board. If no one knows then I am going to use a schematic to see if there is a way for me to do it. If anyone has a schematic that would be useful. Thanks for any help!

Someone correct me if ai am wrong, but I was always led to believe LCD on an Xbox is only possible with certain mod chips like X3, Xenium, etc.

No need to correct you,its as you say a modchip that supports an lcd is required.

what does the modchip do to add the LCD? Is it possible to create a cheaper alternative for a tsop Xbox? Is there documentation?

some modchips have LCD drivers built in that makes this possible. the xbox motherboard does not, even if it is tsop flashed, thus you require a modchip that supports this feature. even if you werent using a chip, you would still need a microcontroller and LCD driver to run the LCD from the LPC. im fairly certain a standalone device like that doesnt exist

Can't comment.The modchip has 2 or more large chips with a few tiny electronic bits,so one can assume the modchip has the compatibility to run the lcd & other shit.The xbox itself was never made for it.If it could be done i'd expect a vid on youtube showing it & i can't find one.
If its any consolation your not missing out on anything imo other than wow,other than perhaps playing music without a tv on

edit: the wheelman has hit the nail on the head & says it better than me

Thanks for the help. Looks like I will have to use a modchip or deal without a LCD. Or hopefully find a LCD modded one fore cheap.

The modchips that support an LCD are Xecuter 3/X3, SmartXX, Aladdin 6064, and the newer chip XBlast from BennyDiamond/ Psychochewbacca in Canada.

Not that I've seen, I've heard there may be a possibility with an LCD XML but I haven't bothered looking into it much.
