did you visit my page? then look for Download Xbox files. I have 3 addresses there. I will find it.
hmm it is hard to find.
Contact me in other way.
you have the same type of xbox i do. i use TDK DVD-R's and they always work for me. since the thompson drive understands very few media formats , have verbatim always worked on your drive? i dont think mine does.
if you have AID 3.0 look in the "bios cds" folder and find the file "512k.x2.5035.137" extract the iso, !but do not edit it or else it may corrupt! load that onto a dvd with a 500mb dummy file. put that into your drive, switch to bank 2. on the flashbios screen pick "get bios from cd" and it should load.
hopefully that works, then insert the AID 3.0 DVD and mod from there.
you can also cheat like me, since i hate playing online bc of all the noobs. i softmodded my xbox first then i was able to use the ftp functions w/the mod chip turned off. send the new bios into the C:/bios/ folder and turn the chip back on and load it up in flash bios bank 2. that way i didn't have to worry about what media was compatible and what wasn't (the majority wasn't compatible)
@redmarker i thought it has to be in .bin format to be able to load as a BIOS on the xbox?
i should've clarified more. when you open the .rar file, there's an iso inside, open the iso and it'll have your bios.bin file and a dummy file the fill up the disk.
you can also use dvd decrypter to burn the iso, and it should include the dummy file in the space the data takes up. double check that on the menu on the right. it'll say "disk data: ________bytes" it'll probably be around 300mb. i've noticed most of the dummy files sit around that.
just make sure you use the bios i mentioned earlier, it works on mine so it'll also work on yours. I'm not as familiar with the M8 bios' but i think they want to load avalaunch or something odd instead of evox.
I just gave him the X2 bios in rar archive.
ok i flashed the chip with the x2 bios i got through email and it did the routine then shut off when i turned back on it did the same as before minus the flashing red and green lights and beeping... but still nothing so i tried the wuto installer disk, the slayers disk, and the EvoX 1.8.458 and none of them booted... what do i try now?
So you dont see the "X2 Live Config" after you flash x2 bios. This mean you flashed unsuccessfully the X2 bios.
Did you try what redmarker stated above?
get a 5 pack of TDK disks, i think either it's just your not using compatible media, or your not burning the XISO correctly. find Craxtion and use it to make an XISO then burn with dvd decrypter. you'll want craxtion later anyways for extracting games or backing them up.
well im trying to flash the chip through the programmer but the tut is down it says xecuter did not pay for domain name. so does anyone know where there is another tut?
Domain is change for teamxecuter. goto xbox-scene.com to get the right address.
what do i do if i have one red and one green light on the programmer... i bought the db25 cable at best buy the brand is dynex... im about to just buy a xecuter 3
I have not used the progammer. So I dont know. Did you read the instruction from teamxecuter?
Once you flash it successfully, your job is done 90%.
yes i read the instruction but it will not read my chip... i only get one red light not 2... and i have not seen the xecuter logo below the x box symbol so i dont think i have flashed the bios correctly
weird problem. You install modchip right but can't flash bios. That is really funny. I dont what to say now.
i'm stuck as well, i don't know what you guys mean by having two red lights when flashing the bios. i only have one red light on the chip when it's off or flashing. i think you should try contacting whoever you bought the chip from and see if they can get you a new one. or contact team xecuter and maybe they can do it.
WELL i think i shall lay the x 2.6 to sleep.. anyways thank you for your help and patience with me people like TheReturn and RedMarker is why afterdawn is one of the best forums on the web right now
Do you think i should just chunk it and get a x 3?
i would see if you can find a place with Xenium XP Gold in stock. it's preflashed, solderless, pretty much plug and play kinda chip. the only problem is that most places can't keep them in stock. i guess that speaks for it as well.
but if you want to use an lcd screen, you'd want the X3 chip. i find the lcd kinda obnoxious, that's why i went with the step down.
