Enter X3 Config Live (Hold White Button while booting the banks that hold the X3 BIOS)  either banks 1-4 or 5-8 (1MB in size).  Select BIOS Tools:

the list of BIOSes stored in all the banks is displayed.  Select one and press A to boot that BIOS bank.  Note, the X3 BIOS shows 1/4, 2/4, 3/4 and 4/4 next to each 256KB bank.  It is a 4*256KB BIOS (1MB).  To boot it, you need to go back and select the proper bank size to switch to 1mb, not 256k.  The BIOSes in banks 5-8 shown are all 256KB in size. They have no 1/4...4/4 or 1/2...2/2 next to the name that a 1MB or 512KB BIOS name would have displayed next to it.

Press B repeatedly to go back to the Main Menu.

      i've made a few posts in here about my og original xbox and how it has sentimental value to me. i know the hdd will eventually fail on it as all hdd's eventually do. i was thinking of using the softmod exploit just to enable ftp so that i can copy the entire hdd and the eeprom key to my pc. my question is, is there any possible danger in doing this? is it possible that the exploit can mess up my xbox? after i'm finished backing everything up, i want the xbox to be in the same condition it was before i did this. btw, it is a v1.6 and has no mod on it.

      Hello all and sorry for the "newb" question. I have just purchased 2 OG Xbox's, one is a 1.0(shown in picture) and the other is a 1.6. I currently have the 1.0 with a openXenium, upgraded to 2tb and just recently painted / led'd it up!  I have it booting to the openXenium screen, I can FTP to this machine and see all folders.
      What I'm looking for is, what bios and dashboard do I need for these two? Its been years since I did this stuff and originally had the X3ce but sold it long ago......
      Any help would be greatly appreciated!
