    I just got my chip in today...but before I proceed installing it into my Xbox (v1.5), I just wanted to ask any Xbox guru out there if there is a prefered BIOS amongst the Xbox guru community. What are the advantages and disadvantages between such BIOSes. Plus, I want to know what the best Dashboard is, or should I say most popular.

    x2_4983

    you will need to use biosmanager to create a 512k size...x2.6 chips only work with a 512k bios.

    just get biosmanager from xecuter's site, and then put the x2_4983 bios into banks 1 and 2 and then save your new bios.

    use X2 4983.06 , make a 1mb file or a 512kb file.

    if using 512, use the other 512 to put the cromwell flashbios, on just incase :)

    cromwell as the first, xecuter2 as the second

    Apologies for being slightly OT.

    Spyman: Which BIOSes do you use on your 1.6 Xbox with Xenium Ice? I tried evox but I want something that supports In Game Reset.

    Is there an X2 BIOS which works on Xenium on a 1.6 Xbox?
