No Flash Bios?

Recommended Posts

Sorry, guys. I tried to flashare the bios of an xbox 1.0 with Hexen's dvd. I wanted to put the M8 F&G on but when I press Y nothing happens. I wanted to make a way n to remove the DVD control to be able to put double hd with switch, but nothing, does not erase me the old and does not make me flashare the new. I mount an Aladdin xt chip.

The version 1.0 needs a 1024kb(1meg) BIOS. If you want a M8 1meg BIOS I can sent you one.

Thank you, I'd appreciate it. I don't understand why he doesn't want to delete the old Bios and install the new one. My goal is to exclude the DVD to be able to insert a second hard drive, not touching anything, but just unplugging the yellow power cable of the dvd.

I dont think what you are planning is as simple as you expect. In fact im pretty sure of it, save yourself the bother and get a 2tb. Using 2 hdd's needs some form of switch to be wired in as the xbox will only ever recognize one at a time regardless of what bios you use.

Hi Shaokhann

here is the same BIOS a 256k version for the Aladdin chip and a 1meg for the version 1.0/1.1 Xbox and I have included the MD5 hash in case you want it.

I Have tested the 256k version in a DouX2 chip.

I use XBlast to flash to the chip with out any problems and just in case you don't have it here is a copy.

Thank you so much. I'll try it as soon as I can.
to have 2 hdd I read somewhere that just insert a bios hack that disables the boot dvd (flash m8 hexen 2019, ind bios, etc), and a switch to switch the primary power supply.
my interest is obviously to use only one hdd at a time.
Question: can I use XBlast flash even if I only have the aladdin xt chip?

Sorry again, but I'm a noob :P
where should I put the downloaded files?
then should I flashare ill bios via xblast?

The XBlast needs do be on the C drive of the modded Xbox. Use a FTP program to transfer to the Xbox.

The (Xblast OS.xbe) file in the root directory of C drive and the folder XBlast on the root of C drive.

Then Make a folder on the C drive called bios

Now copy the BIOS files I sent to you to that folder (c:\bios).

If you are flashing the Aladdin chip that you fitted use the 256kb file.

Boot the Xbox and open a file explorer app on the Xbox and look for XBlast in the C drive then  run that prg.

If your no sure of any thing don't change or do any thing with out asking 1st or you could make a door stop out of the Xbox (Stuff it big time in other words) it's better to ask stupid questions that stuff it we all had to start somewhere.

I take it you have fitted a mod-chip ?

If your tiring to flash the onboard BIOS (TSOP) have you put the flash enable links on the board.?

 

Cheers

Yes yes, the chip works well. When installing a new hdd I had put the bios m8-137fc via dvd xwizard 3.1. But now with both xwizard and hexen it freezes already at the beginning of the flash

      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 would like to flash a 1mb bios to my 1.1 xbox. I downloaded truhexen disc and it only allows the option for xecuter modchips. 
      The modchip i have is unknown. Could someone please assist?

      Hi guys, i just bought a softmoded xbox with a 250gb HDD in it, works well but it's a PAL Xbox, wich mean that i don't have HD options, and it's just unwatchable on my 4k Sony TV, who by the way doesn't have component ports, only RCA and HDMI, i'm stuck with the unfindable and expensive HD LINK by Pound, but lucky me, i found a similar cable converter on Amazon for 25€, even with bad reviews i have no choices but to order it and test it.
      So i solder the points for the TSOP, and also removed the clock capacitor, burned a Hexen DVD (the 2018 one) , launched it, choose the suitable flashing option for my Winbound 1.4 motherboard, and tried to flash the bios, BUT : i have a non official controller! And as i'm sure you know, gentoox is not capable of recognizing no names controller, but only the official one, and of course : i don't have one  (but order one on Rakuten), i tried multiple time with every bios that was on the DVD (only the windbounds one of course), but gentoox just don't like cheap controllers no matter how fast i press on the D-Pad
      Now that you have the context, here's my question : Is there any way to flash the custom bios without the gentoox tool ?
      I know that we can do it with Unleashx (or Evox i don't remember), but i can't find the bios anywhere (just don't know where to look too besides googling it), and even if i find one, i'm not sure where to put it exactly or if it's safe to do anything without Hexen or Xblast.
      Thanks in advance 
      (and i'm french by the way, so i'm sorry for my poor english)
      Regards
      Nabil
