Modchip Installed, Now What Next

Recommended Posts

hi,

i have got my xbit 1.5 to work after 5 days messing with it :) i have loaded the iND-BiOS.Beta.Feb-11-05.67.bin (256k) and when i start the xbox i see a screen saying ind bios. but then it load to the standart dashboard with no new options. do i need now a hexen dvd and make a softmod to unlock everything? i thought when you dissable the modchip the xbox will start up in stock config, but when i softmod it this will still be active.

 

what should i do next after booting the new bios: make a softmod or get another dashboard? i think it goes only like this: softmod and then the installation of a dashboard.

thanks for your advice

HeXEn can install a dashboard, yes. Or alternatively, you can download whichever dashboard you want from the internet and just boot HeXEn in order to grant FTP access, and FTP your downloaded dashboard to the Xbox's HDD.

How did you flash the xbit? I've got an old Xbox I modded in the early 2000s that I used a win 98 pc to flash with USB. Still have the chip, don't have an old pc. We're you able to flash the chip with hexen?

You can flash TSOPs or modchips with HeXEn, yes. Or better yet, XBlast OS.

I tried earlier with the xbit modchip and hexen 2018 and got an error. Can't recall the error now but it failed. The xbit modchip has six banks for various sized bios'. I'm assuming you keep that bank selected to flash it but no such luck. First time around nearly a decade and a half ago I only flashed only one bank but I need a bigger bios for a bigger harddrive.

      I was trying to transfer games through FTP using FileZilla in Linux Mint 19.3 to my Soft Modded Xbox which has a 1TB WD SATA HDD (model: WD10JPVX). I configured the Xbox Network settings to a maximmum of 5 users and FileZilla to 4. Every time I tried to tranffer a file, the user counter on the Xbox went up to 5 and FileZilla started showing errors. 
      So I booted Windows 10 with FileZilla. Still, had the same problem. Anyway, I deleted a Game Folder (4gb) from the "G" partition. Suddenly the Message Log window started showing a list of errors. When it finish, I went to the "Games" section on the Xbox and there where no games and the "G" partition which is about 800GB (I believe), had only 4GB free. So I though the the partition was corrupted. I decided to go to the format menu on UnleashX and format the "G" partition.
      After formating, the "G" partition sowed its true size. So I used "WinSCP" instead of FileZilla to transfer the files. Everyhting was good. It did transfer a lot of games, till I got an error: "Copying files to remote side failed. /G/Games/filename* Directory not found. At this point I had 560 GB free in the "G" partition.
      Someone suggested to do a clean install and wipe the disk. So I followed a youtube tutorial by Mr. Mario. Put the stock HDD back, Hot Swap the 1TB HDD as slave, started Chimp 261812 and it said that the slave hdd (1TB softmodded) was lock. So I tried to unlock the HDD with all the options given by Chimp and it remain lock. The options were: 
      Unlock...
      From Motherboard
      From /tmp/eeprom.bin
      From Master password: XBOXSCENE
      From Master Password: TEAMASSEMBLY
      From /tmp/hddkey.txt
      So I retrieve the Stock HDD and put the 1TB Back in and... now the xbox wont boot. It says: Service required. Call Customer Service.
      I don't know if the HDD is faulty... I tried to run a test by putting the HDD into my laptop but it ask for a HDD Master Password and tried XBOXSCENE and TEAMASSEMBLY but they were invalid.
      I don't know what elese to do. Don't know how to unlock it or if its Faulty at this point. Should I buy a 2TB at this point? I don't know which 2TB model would work...

      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?

      So I have a v1.6 softmodded system currently. Do I need to uninstall my softmod if I want to install an Please login or register to see this link. ? I want to upgrade my system to a 2TB SATA drive. I'm convinced this would be safer for the Xbox's longevity. After I get the Aladdin installed, can I just swap to the 2TB drive, and use Hexen to format the drive as a fresh system?
