I got a used modded xbox today. As I am stupid, instead of reading much into it, I tried to update from Evox m7 to m8 plus. In the update zip I downloaded, there was not only the M8 bios, but also a file called flashbios_v303.bin. I thought that would be the right file to flash, so I did.
It seems like the bios is not compatible with my mod chip. While I am able to boot and select a file to flash from the HDD (I tried to flash an old file), it just gives me the error "Unkown flash! Halting".
Is there anyway to make flashbios write onto my modchip so I have a working bios again?
Hi, I'm a new memeber and this is my first post.
I've recently dug out my softmodded OG Xbox 1.6. I modded it maybe 10 years ago then didn't really do anything with it. I remember having it connected to a PC via IDE to carry out the mod, other than that not sure about versions etc.
I connected it via component and get a screen that is heavily tinted green after the boot screen. I found some info that this may be due to a poor softmod?
In order to try to repair this/update my softmod I have tried to run JCRock5's Extras disc, but it always gets stuck at the splash screen saying "Retail 5838 BIOS DETECTED". I have tried it from disc and iso, cold boot and launcher, always with the same result.
I have also tried the Quick Updater and Upgrader which run but both come up with the error "Xbox softmodding tool not installed".
A couple of other things I noticed: My G and F drives were not visible. I enabled these in the UnleashX menu which showed the F drive as 0mb but still no G drive. I ran the UnleashX format tool which gave me a 2gb F drive. I tried this for the G drive but it is still not visible.
I have also managed to update UnleashX to the latest build via FTP.
Any help would be much apreciated. Thanks.
