    All old xboxes are supposed to keep track of the time (stock dash) for ~3 hours.
    360's don't have a clock cap since MS initially thought everybody would be connected to the Net anyway.
    Seeing how both the Xbox and the 360 sync time upon first connection, battery backed time or cap backed time is becoming pointless ;p
    This is also true for other consoles.
    Wii/PS3 where also connected to the Internet for most of the times.
    XBone/PS4/Wii U, same story.

    How's this? I had two old broken DS Lite's. On the white one, the plastic supporting the hinge had crumbled to junk. On the black one (so used the serial number is worn completely off), the top screen was dead. Now I have one DS Lite. It works perfectly, even though it's still cosmetically rough and I did pretty badly mangle the little rubber squares that cover the top screen screws.

    Not modding but, i tried to get an arcade stick plug out of a Wiimote. Long story short, the arcade stick is permanently plugged in the Wiimote and the Wiimote is broken as well.

    Oh I assure you it not just Toshiba. Lately I have even taken to extending wires out of the case and replacing the ends with some nice heavy duty connectors.

    This is one of those threads that is going to blow up overnight. Neat.

    I posted about it a while ago, there was a bit of a hiccup with it but everything is FINALLY back together properly and works great. PSP 3001 USB Charge mod

    Gotta go run to AutoZone and pick up a new left-rear break caliper for my car and install it.

    Removed 10 of the large 6.3v 2200uF caps from around the CPU of a Xenon 360 and replaced them, almost all of them were bulging. No pics unfortunately.

    Recently got a slim 360 + kinect for $20, Red dotted. Reflowed 2x and all is well, also X clamp replaced. Did a kamikaze but sadly botched it so the drive doesn't want to open properly but still reads games.

    scored another xbox slim based on a buddy that owed me $$$ for $25 + settled the debt. i already modded that one about a year ago.

    modded my cable remote to have a rechargeable battery with USB charging port. ;)

    Just fixed the bent CPU pins on my brother's $400 motherboard :D Now he has 2 functioning PCs (both of which are at least 2x more powerful than my current setup), and he's thinking about passing the weaker of the two to me (still an i7 950). Finally going to get that upgrade I've been waiting for!

    Not me but a friend of mine got the arcade stick plug that was stuck in one of my Wiimotes recently. He even took the lock clip out of the arcade stick cable, no risk of it ever getting stuck again

    On my school theres every year a sort of show off from what we do on the diferent courses so me and a couple of friends fixed a LED Cube that was on my school, there were some led's missing and we placed another program on the arduino. On the video you can also see some rhythm lights that are going to be also used on that day.

    It definitely isn't me on the video :ph34r:

    Nice work. I'm hoping to never have to do it though. I called up Nintendo about 10-11 years ago and asked them if there was anything I could do to fix the worn out stick in one of my N64 controllers. They sent me 5 of these, for free (one of them is in the controller, still going strong).
