Usenet - 2tb Origins – Original Xbox Fully Loaded Front End

Tip for all of you trying to download it on usenet.

I did the same, and like you had the errors on a few of the rar files so it would not unpack without errors.

I unrar'ed it and put a checkmark at keep broken files otherwise it would not save the corrupt image file.

Then I downloaded the torrent, and told it not to start. I then made sure the file was in the correct directory (where my torrent client was looking) and did a recheck of the file(s). I was 99.9% complete, only had to download 88mb and have a fully working image now!

hello

 

Downloaded it with the newsgroups but get many errors while extracting it.|
New i want some parts again seperate download but i cant find the nzb on search stites.

The problem is that there are no repair parts if there was everybody has no problem also the files 900mb are big better is 250 mb or something.

 

But i hope i can get it and have fun with it.

This is exactly what I did.  I now have the image and am about to write it to my 2TB drive.  I'll post back here with results.

 

UPDATE:  It worked!  After letting the torrent "fix" my image file from the usenet download, I was successfully able to write the image to a 2TB hard drive, and plopped it into my TSOP'd box.  What an image!  Hours of fun to be had.  Thanks for the suggestion @patzik

Okay so I got the Usenet download. Payed just to use it, no problem. So I'm here to say the Usenet download is 186 Files short of being complete. I've wasted hours on this. I'm letting it extract and I'm also having the part.574 issue where its corrupt. I know, let the torrent fix it right? well I can't. The torrent is giving me a 1kbps down speed. I'm attempting to extract it, but I don't think I can extract this file. Wont Winrar just cut me off with no file output if its missing all those parts? Another question is... Why is this active as an NZB still if its got 186 missing files, and has know file corruption issues at the source? I've seen a lot of complaints in the comments about part.574, then it was re-uploaded and even that file suffers from the same issues... This build looks awesome can't wait to try it, if we can get this sorted.

Edit*

If someone can help me out of this jam I will be forever grateful.

I went to binsearch and created an NZB file with the remainder of the files that were missing from the NZB posted here.  That's likely what you'll have to do as well.  There were still 3 corrupt files, but it was 99.9% complete when I uncompressed the RAR files and got torrent to try and continue the download.  Even with a slow torrent download, it wouldn't take long as I only had to download 11.8MB to "complete" the download.  The pain here is that we're talking about a BIG image.  I don't have a powerhouse of a computer, so each "try" in my trial and error took hours.

I can say however, that it's WELL worth the effort to get it going!!  Once the image was written to a spare 2TB drive, it booted up flawlessly and is absolutely AMAZING!!

So what I'm doing right now is I got what I did have extracted and then pointed the torrent to the same directory. it checked it and is finishing the missing pieces, I think it also "probably" fixed my damaged section from the part.574 I think, don't quote me. I am running all this on a VPN though so I only get like 1mb or less a second. It will take a few days but I'm gonna let it run and see what I get as far as a working file when I finish. I've only got to get 10% of my download from the torrent. Yeah, I heard 3 pieces were diffidently broken in the NZB usenet download. It sucks the torrent isn't seeding very fast. If my download took off at like 2-3mb I'd be ecstatic. Some people on the torrent have it seeding and they're 100% finished downloading it, so that's good I guess.

I don't think the rest of those files are available on binsearch anymore bud. I'm only returning with part.1549 and thats it. mine stops at part.1540. Maybe you got lucky and the files have since been taken down. anyways, I'm riding the slow road.

UPDATE:

I had some issues while downloading this, if you are too I'm here to help:

What you Need:
-A TSOP Mod or chip with your Bios image set to have an F and G Drive
-(!IMPORTANT!) Xbox Ready 2TB HDD With Drives F and G set to 927.78 GB using 64k clusters and the drive set to unlocked
-A 80-Wire Ultra ATA 2-Drive Ribbon Cable pre installed in your Xbox
-A way to connect your drive to your computer

1. Start by grabbing the NZB and downloading whats there (1640 RAR file in parts)
TIP: Add extra connections in your usenet client to achive higher speeds until your speeds are hitting the limit
2. When you finish go to part one and right click "Extract Files..." set where you want it and under "Miscellaneous" section check "Keep Broken Files" (this is for WinRAR do the equivilent for your choice of decompresion software)
TIP: Dont worry about the corupt file warnings! just wait for it to finish!
3. When finished, start the torrent (on Arcade Punks same place as the NZB) and tell it to download in the same location as the file you got from extracting the parts we got from the NZB.
4. Your torrent Client should check and complete the file. This will take much longer for the remaining 162GB of data.
5. When it finishes you should have a complete working writable image file.
6. Download and install HDD Raw, Copy Tool make sure, your drive is connected, Select the complete image we just obtained as the source, select the Xbox drive as the Target.
TIP: MAKE SURE YOU SELECT THE CORRECT DRIVE AS YOUR TARGET You'll risk computer imparement or data loss... or both.
7. Wait for the drive to write.
8. Put the drive in your Xbox and Test the image.
9. Assuming all went well, Profit.

I stepped away for a while and just saw your reply.  I just searched binsearch again and found the files to create the nzb.  Try searching "2tboripunk" and it should come up.

Anyway, you have probably gotten the rest via torrent now anyway, but just in case someone else here needs to search them out. 🙂

I've been using this image on my xbox for a while now, and all I can say is that it is amazing!  It was so very well worth the time and effort to have it downloaded completely, repaired, and extracted.

Hello,

First post :). I have tried the arcadepunks' NZB file for this image and it doesn't complete. I tried looking for other NZB on binsearch and nzbindex, and all articles are missing. I am using newgroupdirect with a 2gbit pipe.

My first attempt was taking over a week to verify. I moved the files to a different server with bigger specs (16GB DL380 GEN8 HDD) and it seems to run faster but still fails.

Can someone direct me to healthy NZB file?

Possibly dying out now .. gone are the days of 3 year retention on huge archives....
