    i order the xecuter2.3B lite + from system-mods.com. i dont know if this was a mistake but, i trusted them, and hopefully i get my chip soon.anyways, now that i got that out of the way, other than worrying on when will the chip come, what else comes next after i get the chip?, i heard i had to flash the bios or something like that, what exactly is that, and how do i do that

    ok so after you install the mod chip you have to :

    1. Flash the modchip bios. This is done by making a bios cd-rw or dvd. To do this go to the link and follow the steps. (You need to find a working bios someware, thats the illegal part so i can not tell ya. But the name of a good bios is "Evox M7" try to find that on the net.)

    http://www.teamxecuter.com/cromwell.htm

    2. You then need to install evox or some sort of dashboard. An easy way to do this is to download the Slayers Auto Install Disk v2.5 . Then burn that to another dvd or cd-rw and your xbox with it's new bios should be able to read the Slayer disk you created. Search these fourm/google to find a location of the file.

    3. Once you install slayers your pretty much done, unless you want to do some other mods.

    ok, like i said, im getting the xecuter2.3Blite+, and so far i found the bios for it. its called x2.4983BIOS, i heard its the latest bios for the chip that im intrested. how do i burn this BIOS.BIN file? in my signature you can see the burning programs that i have, tell me wich one should work. ive also got the dashboard called evox3935, ive also heard its the latest one, now this is where im stuck, i dont know if this should be burned on cd-r/cd-rw/dvd+r/dvd+rw, my burner doesnt support dvd-r/dvd-rw. ok this is what came in my evox3935 package. a folder with "trainers". another folder called "skins", and another one called "bios" than i have a "trainers source.zip" file, followed by readme.txt...than original-readme.txt, evoxdash.xbe...the infamous "evox.ini" and the last file is -evolutionx build 3935.nfo..... is this the order that the "evoluitonx" disc should be burned? again, what media should i use cd-r/cd-rw/dvd+r/dvd+rw? thanks for the help guys.

    follow these instructions to make the bis disc and go to http://www.geocities.com/seamonkeyguides/ fo info on evox
    ======================
    How to use FlashBIOS
    ======================

    Step 1 - Creating the Bios CD

    - Get the bios you need from EFNET #xbins (we recommend X2 4981.06). Make it 512k with X2 Bios Manager naming the file BIOS.BIN (case sensitive)

    - Select a CDRW or DVDR media compatible with your XBox's DVD-Rom.
    (Most CDRW will work and most DVD-R will work. If you have a Samsung Drive then some CD-R will work)

    - Burn the BIOS.BIN file onto a CD using NERO - (select the following settings, No Multisession, ISO Level 1, Format Mode 1, ISO 9660,
    Deselect Joliet, Finalize CD, Disc-At-Once)

    - You should add a dummy file to the CD (anything between 100MB and 500MB will do) to ensure it is read properly by the XBOX.

    Step 2 - Flashing with FlashBIOS (Cromwell)

    - Turn your XBox console ON, when the DVD-Rom tray ejects please insert your BIOS.BIN CD and close the tray.

    - When the flashing procedure is complete the Xbox will shut down.

    - If your modchip is write protected or the programming fails you will be informed by error messages on screen (It will say Unknown Flash! Halting)

    I got my modchip from system-mods.com as well, and it came pretty quickly. You shouldn't have to worry too much, if it hasn't arrived yet.

    I've also purchased from them. Never a problem and good service. They have a live chat for tech support, but you usually can get answers.
