    Okay, I have an Xbox v1.0 modded with the Xecuter v2.2 Pro and I had the Xecuter2 v4977 bios install along with Evolution X v3921 dashboard installed. I want to update my bios to Xecuter v4979 and I flashed my bios via Evox with Cromwell v2.27 first. I wish I hadn't did this because now I am stuck at the Cromwell boot up screen. I have made several bios discs using Fugi-Film DVD+R (which my Thomson does read because it took my evox format disc on this media) and also Memorex CD-RW (which my original bios flash, with v4977 was made with this media). I have created the Xecuter v4979 1MB bios.bin file with Xecuter 2 Bios Manager v1.1 and coupled it with dummy files of various sizes (I have tried 160MB, 500MB, and 675MB dummy files) and made xISOs in both Simple xISO and xISO; none of these attempts has turned up anything besides it ejecting the media because it won't read it or it says no update bios information found. Am I doing something wrong? It has been several months since I originally installed my first bios and did all this before. Any information would be much appreciated.__X_X_X_X_X_[small]"The brain is designed to design reality. If you operate your own brain skillfully you can design your own reality.

    what do you mean burn bios.bin first? I have dummy file named as dummy.bin so shouldn't bios.bin come first? How did you burn your bios.bin first?

    Are there any steps that I am missing up there that someone could point out to me?

    so you didn't make an iso file first? you just took bios.bin and dummy file and burnt it straight to disc and booted in your xbox? also, what was the name of your dummy file? I have Nero and Prassi Primo DVD._X_X_X_X_X_[small]"The brain is designed to design reality. If you operate your own brain skillfully you can design your own reality.

    Oh man! I don't know what the hell happened but I tried what you did, I didn't make an xISO but just burned it as data files, bios.bin first(I used EvoX M7 1024kb bootable from media file that I got from xbins)and it started to flash. I got excited as I have been attempting this for about 5 hours now. To my surprise I turn on the Xbox with chip enabled and it just makes this noise and turns on/off 3 times and the light on front flashes orange (or red) and green and all I see is blue screen. If I disable the chip it will start but it has error code 5 and a bunch of foriegn language. Can someone please help or direct to help on what might have happened and how to fix this?!?
