XBox Bios Checker

Recommended Posts

I'm  a noob and I need a little help please. I have softmodded my Xbox with Unleash X and now I want to hard mod it. I have burned Hexen 2018 disc image file to a disc and now I am trying to figure out how to get Xbox Bios Checker either v4 or V5 onto a disc. I burn the files to the DVD R disc but the Xbox won't recognize it.  What Files do I need to burn onto the disc? Should there be a disc image file? What am I doing wrong? Do I have to hardmod it first for this to work? I'm sorry but I have looked at so many videos and searched so many forums that now I'm lost in the forest. Please break out the crayons on this one to show me how to do this. Thank you.

You don't need to check which BIOS it is if it's only been softmodded because you already know it's on a stock BIOS. Also using the Xbox DVD drive is a bad idea because they are old and have a high rate of failure, so you want to avoid wearing out the laser unless it is necessary to do so. So if you really need BIOS Checker for some reason, just FTP it to the HDD and run it from there instead.

But to answer the question, yes. You would have to burn an iso image to the disc. The Xbox isn't gonna see anything otherwise. Not just any iso image either, but an Xbox iso.

Thanks for the help. I crossed my fingers and inserted the hexen 2018 disc. Everything loaded like it was supposed to. I didn't know that I don't need to know the BIOS on a softmod. Man! All that searching and no one said just stick the hexen 2018 disc in and let it go :). They were always using a Xbox BIOS Checker on their videos. Everything was saying "Remember your BIOS version".  Big thank you for the help! Hope this helps others as well who are stuck in the same spot.

You can upload the BIOS Checker app to the HDD.  No need to put it on a disk.

Make a subfolder "BIOS Checker" where other applications are stored on your HDD.  (e.g., F:\Apps, G:\Apps) and upload the files for it to this new folder. Reboot or refresh the menu list.

      Hello i just brought a Crystal Xbox and i need some help.
      I have been speaking to the guy who sold it to me, He knows nothing about modding but has been super helpful, He brought the xbox of his friend before him, But his friends got the xbox of someone else before that.
      What i need help with is distinguishing weather the Xbox that i have brought has a mod chip or not?
      He tells me when he turns on the Xbox an Evo x logo come up in the top left corner. He also says it is region free, and plays DVDs without the dvd add on.
      I asked for more detail and this is what he told me and this is all he knows.
      The seller.
      Ok I’ve checked and you need to hold the power button down to get the evo x logo to show. Holding down the eject button or just simply pressing the power button boots it to the xboxdashboard. So I’m guessing that it has the chip but the bios needs flashing by connecting to a pc. I don’t have a clue how to do that.
      I know nothing about Xbox modding at all.
      If i have brought a modded Xbox then i may need some advice, on stuff like
      How to flash a bios on it, What bios to use?
      I would want to replace the CD rom drive as he says it is sticky and upgrade the HDD so i can install games to the HDD
      My problems is that i know 0 about modding original Xboxes. But i have some technical background and i have modded previous consoles.
      Thank you! Sorry for my lack on knowledge on the subject.
      I also brought a USB Adaptor Cable Cord for Xbox (Original) So i can use a usb on the xbox if needed.
      He says the The manufacture date of console is 18/6/2004 as well.

      Hi all, just found this site and looks like a good resource for original Xbox modding. I started modding Xboxes way back not long after they first came out. I had an original V1.0 box with an Xecuter X3 chip, which I was stupid and eventually sold. I'm back in the game now with another X3 modded box and another one I'm soft modding and going to do a TSOP flash. Looks like some good resources here.
