Help With Bios Flash

Recommended Posts

Well if someone has asked this question, I can't find it.  I have a V1.2, non-chipped XBOX. Was wondering if the EVOX M8+ bios found on Hexen 2018 disc will work for  a 2 Terabyte drive? Anybody else got any more suggestions?

Thanks

Yes I am going to flash it. I have always used evox. Was wondering what supported 2 terabyte drives. why do they use the other bios?

I think all the latest BIOSes (not sure exactly at which point they'd be called latest other than the last releases) which support reading a partition table from the HDD to override the BIOS's default LBA48 configurations will work.

X2 4983 (Size: 256KB) Only v1.0-1.5 supported

X2 4981 (Size: 256KB) Only v1.0-1.5 supported

X2 5035 (Size: 512KB so 1.0 or 1.1 to TSOP flash or modchip required with 512KB bank size for other supported Xbox versions)
   - x2_5035_vOld_512k.bin (v1.0-1.5 Xboxes)
   - x2_5035_v16plus_512k.bin (v1.6) A modchip is required no TSOP on 1.6's.

EvoX M8plus.bin (for v1.0-1.5) or M8plus_16.bin (for v1.6/1.6b) (Size: 256KB)

iND-BiOS 5003 (Size 256KB only for v1.0-1.5, not v1.6)

iND-BiOS Feb-11-05 Beta (aka 5004) (Size: 256KB only for v1.0-1.5, not v1.6)

I didn't list them in any particular order however looking back at it first would be last and last would be first I'd use for TSOP - note X2 5035 only for v1.0 or 1.1 TSOP too big for later releases v1.0-1.5 and v1.6 requires a modchip with a 512KB bank as there is no TSOP to reflash.

OK. Cool.. I will go with the iND-BIOS 5004 F&G. Might as well give it a whirl. Long as it supports 2 terabytes.  I have ordered that Bare Electric Conductive Paint. Gonna try that too. Used the "Printed Circuit Pen" but it didn't work to well for me. Sometimes it worked most of the time it didn't and I still found myself soldering.  Thanks Guys

If you are planing on the TSOP,i believe you will not want to flash it with evox dash since its tsop brand is winbond(i believe)because my 1.2 have this type of chip nad wouldnt flash from evox dash

Check which brand of TSOP is installed on your Xbox's motherboard.

Some require an additional wire connection - Sharp and/or software app ResctooX (used by HeXEn 2018) or Please login or register to see this link. XBE version (v0.56 is the latest release) to flash - Winbond and Sharp.  Flashing of all the different brands of TSOP chips is preconfigured and available by selection of the proper menu item in Forlorn Penguin's Please login or register to see this link. .

Well just an update. I flashed with the IND-BIOS 5004. The flash went well but  I did have a problem with the sound on the Unleash-X desktop. Don't know why but I reinstalled it with the Hexen disk and everything is fine. For the record the Bare Electric Paint worked the first time. Put it on and let it dry for 15 minutes and flashed it. Easiest one I ever done.

      I have a version 1.4 xbox that was TSOP modded with X2 4983.67 bios and 750gb IDE hard drive. I have flashed IND-5004.67 bios to it and now it does not see the G partition. I have tried to re-partition the drive to no avail, it will not see the G partition. If I boot the HEXEN 2018 disk it sees the G partition or if I re-flash the X2 bios it will also see the G partition. I am at a loss to what the problem I have is? Has anyone had this problem before. Thanks.

      So i recently bought these two controllers from a man in singapore, he said he used to work for microsoft back in the day and even recieved a launch team edition xbox for working there. I saw he had these two controllers and decided to buy them.
      I would like help in identifying what they are and if they are prototype controllers or rare unreleased versions. I dont believe they are custom controllers though given the stickers on the back.

      Hi all,
      I just bought an OG Xbox v1.1 with Xbit modchip (Evox 3.6 bios is loaded). I still have to open it up for cleaning and checking if the clock capacitor is still in place.
      Up until now, I had only softmodded my other Xbox.
      So, what should I do to this one? Can I update the modchip's bios with Hexen Tools, or should I use the old updater tool for Xbit?
      I guess I could still update the dashboard using Hexen tools, right?
      I'd really appreciate your help!
