Check this post out Neighbor was under clocking with NV Overclock. I played around with it on a lot BIOS versions and had no issue.

This is not about my problem. My problem is that i already overclocked my xbox and with the overclock,there is a lot of lag over online play(since others have stock xboxes). So i want a way to get back at stock speeds whenever i want without reflashing the bios. Thats why i want a BFM solution,so that whenever i want stock speeds,i will load the stock BFM bios

I'm going to honest what does BFM BIOS do vs the more widely used ones ? I have a set of them but never used any. 

Any reason why not to have a dual BIOS setup on a mod chip of your choice ready just for this situation ? Am I missing something ?

I cant have dual bios,since i use a TSOP and not a modchip

In short no. Without a mod chip the TSOP EEPROP will have to be flashed to return to stock speeds every time.

Of the chips I have used in order of my preference XblastLite Xxecuter 3 and then Open Xenium.

Long and shot power switch press or direct stored BIOS selection on startup makes this very easy.

If you can TSOP, a mod chips in my opinion is actually easier to do.

In the attached post above Neighbor explains a down clock he also has a overclock post. I attached some failures when attempting to use the program the first time. Note you may break compatibility as this post shows.

Time to get one of these modchip with multiple banks

Also, can you upload the bios file so i can test on my xbox?

I dont like modchips so i am gonna keep using the TSOP. The solution i found for myself is overclock only the gpu and leave cpu and ram stock. I did it and the games play at normal speed and no lag online. I hope someone will find a way for a BFM bios to actual set the clocks too

If you have a version 1.0-1.1 you can split the TSOP with a singe switch to have 2 BIOS's or a simple Aladdin chip, You have one BIOS on the TSOP and a different BIOS on the chip, If you power on with the eject button is loads the TSOP and power button loads the chip BIOS file.

You can't use a BFM BIOS to reconfigure the base hardware setup of the CPU, GPU and RAM.  A BFM BIOS does not have the startup code that allows for overclocking.  You have to boot a different non-BFM BIOS to go between different hardware startup configurations - overclocked or not overclocked.

Thus, you need a modchip that supports booting multiple BIOSes - OpenXenium is one; there are others.

Thats what i wanted to do before even posting here for help,but the problems are that i have 3 xboxes so i dont wanna buy a chip for every console and also all of them have single bank tsops

Thats what i see.... i really hope that someone someday will make BFM bioses do that too,it would be really helpfull

OpenXeniums are pretty cheap to either build yourself or buy from someone, you should find them for ~$20. Or for about the same price you could build 5 yourself. 😄

It won't happen because it needs to be done via Xcodes meaning it happens before BFM bios/kernel initialization. You can read some more about the Xbox boot process here https://mborgerson.com/deconstructing-the-xbox-boot-rom/

You don't overclock a PC on the fly either.  You go into the BIOS change the settings and reboot the PC, run it through stress testing to make sure it doesn't crash.  If so, you boot back into the BIOS which uses standard operating settings (the Xbox's BIOS doesn't have a configuration page to do these overclocking changes) then make overclocking settings changes that are less stressful.  Repeat until it doesn't crash.

There are cpu that do it automatically on the fly. Also you can overclock a gpu on the fly without reboot

No one has written such an app to overclock the Xbox's CPU or GPU on the fly.  Permanent changes are made to the modified Xbox BIOS to configure the hardware during startup before the kernel is extracted/decrypted from ROM then loaded into RAM and executed - hardware is configured by the 2BL (second boot loader) code, not the kernel.

I got it,so i overclocked the gpu only and the game run at normal speed,so i guess i am gonna leave it like that. Thanks everyone for the help

      Hello everyone,just a simple question here. Can i have always the flash-enable points bridged so that i can flash a Bios at any time,or will that damage anything? Thanks
    • By Brainpinker
      Hello friends
      I opened my Xbox today to see which mod chip is installed because I bought the device used. It turned out to be a Super Aladdin live chip. I would like to install a larger hard drive with 2TB. I've already ordered the adapter and cables. Now I am wondering if I have to flash my BIOS and which one I should use on this chip.
      Since I almost never flash, I have to rely on external help. I have already figured out how to format the hard drive with Hexen.
      It looks like I have Evolution X as an app on the device, only the sign is not displayed to me when booting. My Xbox says OPENXDK at the bottom.
      Thank you in advance for your help.

      As I've been TSOPing and chipping recently using customised BIOS I thought it would be a good idea to add the MD5 hash info to all the programs that can make use it: XBMC, EvoX and, of course, BIOS Checker. All three have slightly different syntax requirements apparently but whatever I did I couldn't get BIOS Checker to recognise the custom BIOS I'd added.
      The cause and solution turned out to be very simple: I was pasting in the MD5 code from EVTool, which has an option to copy it to the clipboard. Sensibly it uses lower case letters in the ID string and after half a day wasted, thinking I'd made some syntax mistake, that was the problem.
      BIOS Checker does not recognise lower case letters. It will report the correct MD5 hash but say the BIOS is unknown until you change them all to upper case.
      I'm sure somebody must have noticed this 'quirk' before but I couldn't find anything about it so I thought it worth posting about it here.
