HeXEn: Unable To Flash Bios. Error Reading Bios File.

Recommended Posts

Unable to flash BIOS. Error reading bios file (see pic). To me it sounds like I have a bad DVD burn? Just wanted to confirm. I did burn at the slowest write speed. Will re-burn again.

-v1.1 mobo
-XeXEn 2018
-Using Verbatium DVD+R media
-Attempting to flash iND-BIOS.5004 (F and G) to use 2TB SATA HDD.

Try the X2-5035.67 that will also work with a 2tb hard drive.

Soft modding is like masturbating, It gets the job done but it's nothing like the real thing.

-Thanks for the quick reply. Will search for the HeXEn 2020.

-Q: I noticed that the X2-5035 uses the 512kb BIOS, any advantage to the 256kb BIOS flash?

You have a 1024kb(1meg ) chip so why not use it.

Q: In the TruHeXEn2020 any reason to use X2.5035 F and G Force480p or just stick with the X2.5035 F and G?

Thanks!

-That went well. Seems like I had a bad DVD burn previously. Now is there anything else I need to do (eg. Unlock HDD)?

Never mind, was hesitant to unlock the HDD due to a warning if softmodded and if HDD is unlock your xbox won't boot.

Thanks for all the help!

With the TSOP flashed the Xbox will boot a install disk with a unlocked hard drive. It's only a softmod that need the hard drive locked and I think on the TruHeXEn 2020 disk there is a softmod remove option and if it's not on the TruHeXEn disk then it's on the Rocky5's disks.

I run all my Xboxes with unlocked hard drives ranging from a stock 10gig to 2tb drives.

With a unlocked hard drive you can easily clone a HDD for a 2nd xbox that has a chip/TSOP mod.

      what bios @SS_Dave  do you think i should go with? 1.4v revision
    • By H3is3nb3rg
      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!

      Hi all,
       
      New user here and I am excited to get things going.  As the title states, I am receiving an error when attempting to launch the urldownloader included with v  10/04/2020.  Based on the changelog, it states that URLDownloader was updated to include v 1.0.18, but when launching the downloader, it states it is 1.0.17 in the bottom bar. Note that my internet connection is perfectly fine as I was able to update from the latest stable build to this test build I am currently using.  Google searches have thus far turned up empty so I figured this was a good place to post about it.  Can anyone help me out?  Debug log attached
