Clone X2 Chips ( 1 Maybe Real ) - Flashing Problems

Recommended Posts

Ok guys I've spoke to chaos engineer about this on Reddit a few times now and he guided me the easiest way to fix but it's now troubling me as to WHY it's occuring as it's never before now?

Chip 1 and 2 Ones a 2.3b Lite With markings the other is a 2.3b Without ANY markings. 'Will update with Pics later'. 

Now I can make a 1mb BIOS with x2 5035 and M8Plus and switch between the 2 using the PCBs fine. But when hexen / skaters flashes it only creates 1 BIOS across both banks  my guess here is hexen is creating a 1mb and flashing all 4 banks? I've done everything a normal install would do. 

Boot on bank 1 - Flash Bank 1 with Bios A.

BOOT on bank 1 - Switch while on rhen flash bank 2 with BIOS B..


BOOT on bank 1 - Flash with BIOS A

Boot on Bank 2 - Flash with BIOS B 


Each of these methods BOTH leaves whatever was the last bios flashed as the bios on both banks. Bear in mind the switches work FINE IF I make my own bios and flash within EVOX. 


Also Ind Bios no matter which struggles with these chips with stuttering which can't be changed or helped even with config changes. 


Yet M8Plus boots so fast it's actually shocking. Especially since both are SATA with 2TB hdd's. One using Startechs adapter one using a VBEXY? and yes I've switched adapters. I've switched 80 pin IDE cables. (ASUS one required 0 mods actually happy even though it's only 18 inches. 


What's the best course of action. Flash x2 5035 and M8 Plus 67 manually and leave? Both need f:127 g: Enabled IIRC.

Confused why it's doing this.  But I've only used an X2.0 lite and X2.1 pro, X2.6CE Lite and X3/X3CE skipped the X2.3b(lite) version.

I know with the x2 pro modchip I could set the DIP switches for the bank I wanted to flash and only that particular bank was overwritten using Evoxdash's BIOS flashing option.  Or, with a PC's parallel port and X2 BIOS Manager software flash, the entire chip or IIRC a particular bank could be reflashed with a different BIOS.  But, the X2.x pro is an entirely different Team Xecuter modchip.

I wonder...what Flash= lines are in your evox.ini file?

What flash chip is ID'd when you run Xbox BIOS Checker v5.0? (Did you already post a picture of this in a different thread?)

      Hey everyone! So I have a 1.1 xbox and I know that some of the motherboards are different and you may need to soughter different points as a result of that. Can anyone send me details on how the different boards look and what are the proper points to soughter? Help would be appreciated!

      Softmodded Xbox running Unleash X - 160gb HD (Unsure of model but can retrieve if needed.) 
      Using Startech IDE2SAT2 Converter for cloning process set on Slave
      2TB WD Blue Drive WD20EZRZ
      Once this is cloned successfully I planned on using the Kingwin Model ADP-06 
      I have swapped IDE cables to the converted sata drive with the Startech Adapter and loaded into Chimp successfully
      Don't care about games but would like to get saves if possible (The drive is also failing)
      In Chimp I am cloning out C and E partitions and then selecting "G Occupys Space Beyond 137GB" (New to this so not sure if this is the right option to use.)
      It completes it's process and I power down the system.  But am getting an Error 13 when I plug up the hard drive into the master IDE port with both the startech set as "Master" and the Kingpin on both dip switch settings
      Am I missing something in this process?  Do I need to update my dashboard on my original xbox to make chimp compatible?

      I am using a generic IDE to SATA( I have had it forever- cant find any identifiers) & a WD black 2tb. I am getting super slow boot times & random partition corruptions. I have followed the tutorials as far a using xbpart 1.0 to make a 230mb partition, then 1.1 to make it 927.78 w 64k clusters. I feel that I am doing it all right, but G never shows up & F is never the right size in other apps (eolution x - unleash x - XBMC) Also sometimes C or E will just end up 0mb after a reboot. Just gone. I am also getting super slow boot times & am running Yoshihiro-m8-1.6B-Memory-Fixe-Beta4.bin for a bios flashed into the main bank. Any Ideas?
