Xbox Development Bounty
I know there is a thread discussing this just below, but I think that a seperate topic needs to be set up for this.
The Xbox (original) has been neglected in recent years with releases of os' for it being far and few.
It basically is a legacy pc and I feel that a low resource os like Haiku would be perfect for it.
I am willing to start a bounty for this at Haikuware, but I need to know if there is enough interest in it before I go ahead.
The roadmap could look like this (I know its not very technical, but it outlines the basics)
-Tracker must work
-Support for USB mouse and keyboard at least
-Initial support for nvidia chipset
-Use custom bootloader or cromwell
-Fix problems which may prevent bootup (ghost pci ports, no super I/O chip etc.)
-Synch with xbox CPU clock speed
-CD eject must work
-Better graphics support (maybe 480p and 720p)
-Allow install to the F: partition
-Xbox shutdown/restart sequences included
-10 foot user interface
-IR remote support
-FATX read support
-Loopback file install
-New name for distro (Xaiku?) and new theme
Any refinements or additions to this are appreciated.
