how!? i have an x-ecuter 2.2 lite plus
you need to make a bios flash cd
if you turn on the xbox with the chip enabled
you should see a black screen with a pinguin
with the message: please insert bios update cd
if you see this
all you need is a bios cd
what you need? :
the bios of your choice
x-cuter X2_4977.bin is good
CD-RW media or DVD-R your xbox can read with no problem
a dummy file ( whatever files zipped) I recommend between 300mb-500mb if you have a thompson)
this is a pretty good guide you can follow
what bout cd-r?
what about the dashboard i know that i can flash the bios like that but what about the dashboard?
unless your xbox has a DVD drive that can read everything
dont know if is the samsung or the philips
better start with CD-RW media
that way you will not waste cd's
cause they are rewritables
first you have to install the bios
after that you can leave it like that or install the new dashboard
new dashboard is not required for back ups
but if you want your dashboard to look cool
then go for it
ok for dashboard
<<---------------- Creation of the Boot Disk -------------------->>
1. extract the files from the version of EvoX you downloaded. You should put your dummy file in the extracted folder.
2. in the new EvoX folder, find the file with the extention (i.e. .bmp, .txt) of .xbe
it is usually names something along the lines of evoxdash.xbe
This is the dashboard file. *YOU MUST* rename this to default.xbe for boot disk purposes
3. make sure you have *at least* these files in your evoX folder
default.xbe (after renaming)
dummy file (nero.zip)
4. open Craxtion. click add. Browse so that it is searching for the folder with the
evoX files in it. Click Next. It will now ask you to point it in the direction of where to save your new .iso you can also rename it in the bottom left Click Next. If it asks you if you want to patch the default.xbe, choose no. Then Finish it up and you got yourself a new xbox .iso
5. open nero. close out of the wizard if it pops up. go to File>Burn Image. Burn the .iso file you made with Craxtion onto your blank cd-rw. Burn as slow as possible to insure a safe burn.
6. after burning the disk, put that disk into your xbox and turn it off then back on.
This Boot Disk has created a temporary FTP server so that you can transfer files to and from your xbox and computer. In order to FTP to your xbox, you HAVE to be at your dashboard, either by boot disk or if it's already installed then just go to it by default.
!!AS SOON!! as you get the boot disk to work and you connect to your xbox for the first time, BACK UP your C: and E: drives. You can do this by using FlashFXP.
o so i dont have to install dashboard and i can still like save games to my harddrive and with what program can i do that?
to play back ups cd games
all you needed was a new bios x2_4977
to save the games and do more stuff on yor xbox
you'll need the dashboard
dashboard is that screen with the green x right? ok well ya i just follow your instructions to make it right??? and which one is the best dashboard to use?
how to u back up your c and e drive also?
without a computer?
evolution X (evox)
is the most used by all people
that's the one im goona use
to back up your xbox drives (incase something goes wrong)
your need a pc with a Network Interface Card (NIC)
well i guess i cant back them up then :-( o well if something goes wrong i buy the programmer
if something goes wrong
you gonna lost probably your xbox
the programmer all it does is reflash the bios
not make your xbox files come alive again
better do a little of hard work
get a NIC for like $10 - $15 if your pc has'nt one
and save your xbox hdd files to your pc before installing evox
emm if you were talking about a bad flash
a programmer is all what you need
but for evox a back up of the xbox hdd is needed
ok ok i have a nit card i need a cable tho correct? and that is all i need and cant i download oringinal xbox c and e drives from Interent Relay Chat Clients?
downloading the original xbox C and E from IRC
probably if you are lucky
but you'll not know if they are messed up
better back up the ones you have and you know are the ones your xbox had and worked perfectly
ok good then how do i connect it and back it up?
to connect xbox and pc on network
you have to have a evolutionX boot cd
or have it already installed on your xbox
if its the first time you are connecting
make sure your evox is set up to static ip (if your are on a HUB or you are connecting thru a crossover cable with your pc, when in this ciscunstances your pc has to be set up to the same ip your xbox has)))
if you are on router (leave the evox settings ip to:dhpc or something like that)
and same with the pc
( router will do all the hard work)<- easiest set up
this is a guide from RustyDog
for setting up a network PC-->XBOX
