I was wondering if anyone has had any luck mixing a debug bios with a Focus based motherboard. I tried recently doing a retail to debug xbox conversion and the unit that I tried it on has the Focus video encoder and I ran into video issues as soon as I used PBL to switch to a debug bios. I have tried with both the complex 4627 BFM and also with the 5388 stock one that comes with the dev files and they produced the same result, scrambled video.. I have tried this with an xbox that has the Conexant video encoder and it seems to work though unfortunately due to some screw ups with some DVD drive testing, I have fried the DVD control/power from the PIC meaning I have to power the drive from another xbox for it to work (leave it for another topic as to what I was doing). Anyways , I was wondering if anyone knows of any workarounds for getting the debug bios to work on the Focus video encoder. I have a feeling since there arent any since all debug units to my knowledge had the Conexant video encoder, but nonetheless worth a try.

Thanks

I initially also tried that but only set the launch debug .xbx option which didn't launch the files. Is there anything else I need to set like the first dashboard to launch?

DISABLEDM=1 at line 10 has to be 0. Otherwise it's still running retail.

Okay thanks. I tried that and now it is finally working. While I know it is off topic, does anyone know how to get the IND bios running under PBL? I cant get it to work under either the Metoo edition or latest 1.41 release. It would be nice to have it so the system boots to unleash first and then I can go to the debug dash as appose to booting to the debug dash then going to unleash.

Thanks

You need to use the .bfm.bin version of any BIOS file with PBL, not the plain .bin file. BFM.bin's are Boot From Media versions of the BIOS while the .bin alone versions are to be  flashed to a either a modchip or TSOP.

Ahh okay. I totally forgot about the whole boot from media thing. Thanks I'll give it a try.

Use ind-bios 5003 with the debug mode enabled.

how is it done? just spent some time on google and nothing.

 

update:
in the ind-bios.cfg had to replace USEXBX=0 by USEXBX=1

also this line should look like this:

DASH1=\Device\Harddisk0\Partition1\dashboard.xbx

 

SOLVED

      Re-flashing bios on dead aladdin x2 Plus2.
      Im not sure what went wrong but i tried to update the aladdin x2 Plus2 to the ind 5003 via Xblast  ( loaded oh hdd )
      The flash appears to be successful but after a reboot i got the 3 boots and frag.    Now it appears the chip is dead.?
      Thankfully i had another X2 Plus 2 and using that i can boot again 
      I thought maybe i could hot-swap the chip and re-flash the bad one.  However when i pull the chip the console appears to freeze and video goes to black.   
      Im running off a Hexe 0.99b11-22 heimdalls xbox engineerind disc to try and re-flash
      1.6 pal xbox
      Any ideas if this is possible?

      Hi,
      I upgraded my xbox to a 1TB sata drive but I can only see 123gb. I understand I need to update the bios on the modchip I have which I believe is an Xecuter 2.3 lite.
      I tried using Hexen to upgrade to x2.4981 but I get the message !!Flash Not Writeable!!
      This happens if I have the switch set to protect or unprotect, Bank 1 or Bank 2.
      I downloaded a copy of x2.5035 so I could go with that version outside of Hexen, but I don't know how to do that.
      Please could someone assist me. Thank you.

      Hello everyone. I have a question. Can i use only F partition on a 67 Bios? I am asking this because i am using ind-5004 bios and it was fine as far as i had F and G. Recently i decided to make just 1 F partition. I loaded xbpartitioner 1.1 and create a single 290 GB partition for F(it was 120 F and 170 G before) and after that i started loading stuff in it. The problem is that after the free space went to 32-35 GB(dont remember excactly)no new files would be writen on the F partition. The other partitions would get files normally. If i delete something on the F,then it would accept files again until it reaches the free space limit.... Am i doing anything wrong or is the bios supposed to work only with G too?
