Flashed by X-Box Last Night
 
woo hoo!!!

flashed my X-Box last night, here is a quick guide as to what i did for those who want to attempt it

i used a UK X-Box with an ST chip in (look on www.xbox-scene.com) for info on how to find which version chip you have got

1) Installed Modchip (Enigmah Beta - 29 Wires)
2) Made wires 15 and 21 very long and they ran outside the case
3) Bridge the 2 sets of T-SOP flash points
4) Boot the X-Box and make sure it loads copied games
5) Burn EvolutionX to DVDR
6) Connect a Cross-over adaptor into the X-Box
7) Connect a Network cable from the Laptop Ethernet Port to the Cross-over adaptor
8) Boot up my Laptop running WindowsXP
9) Install and run FlashFXP on Laptop
10) Boot EvolutionX on the X-Box
11) Select the Network Option from EvolutionX (might be under system utils)
12) Wait for the IP address on EvolutionX to change
13) When the EvolutionX IP has changed, select quick connect from FlashFXP on the Laptop
14) Enter the IP address from EvolutionX into the FlashFXP screen
15) Click Connect
16) FlashFXP should now connect to the X-Box
17) You should see several drives listed (C, D, E, etc.)
18) Select 'C'
19) Rename the file "XBoxDash.xbe" to "zXBoxDash.xbe" (press F2 to rename)
20) Go back to the drive listings (up a folder)
21) Select 'D'
22) Copy the file "default.xbe" to the Laptop Hard Drive
23) Go back to the xbox 'C' drive
24) Copy the file "default.xbe" you just copied to the Laptop Hard Drive to the X-Box 'C' drive
25) rename the "default.xbe" file to "xboxdash.xbe"
26) make a new folder on the X-Box hard drive called "roms"
27 Go back to the X-Box 'D' drive and into the "Bios" folder on the EvolutionX disc
28) Copy all the files in there (should be 4 - all .bin) to the Laptop Hard Drive
29) Copy the 4 ".bin" files on the laptop hard drive to the "Roms" folder on the X-Box 'C' drive
30) Remove the EvolutionX disc
31) Reboot the X-Box
32) When the X-Box has rebooted go into the Flash Bios Option on EvolutionX (might be under system utils)
33) Select the Bios Image (i selected Xtender v1.1.bin")
34) You should know be asked if you are sure you want to flash the Bios (Dont Press anything)
35) Cut both sets of the wires that we left outside the case (wires 15 and 21)
36) Now press "Y" on the X-Box controller
37) A green indicator on the TV screen will go up showing that the bios is flashing
38) When this is done the X-Box should reset itself
39) When the X-Box has reset you should be back to the EvolutionX screen
40) If you are at this screen its worked (because the mods disabled and EvolutionX is un-signed code and should work without a mod)
41) Turn of the X-Box and take out the X-Box modchip
42) Either remove the 2 sets of T-SOP bridge points or leave them (i left mine)
43) Re-assemble the X-Box
44) Turn the X-Box on (it will load back to EvolutionX)
45) Select the Network Option from EvolutionX (might be under system utils)
46) Wait for the IP address on EvolutionX to change
47) When the EvolutionX IP has changed, select quick connect from FlashFXP on the Laptop
48) Enter the IP address from EvolutionX into the FlashFXP screen
49) Click Connect
50) FlashFXP should now connect to the X-Box
51) You should see several drives listed (C, D, E, etc.)
52) Select 'C'
53) Delete the file "XBoxDash.xbe"
54) Rename the file "zXBoxDash.xbe" to "XBoxDash.xbe" (press F2 to rename)
55) Delet the "Roms" folder on the X-Box hard drive
56) Reset the X-Box and it should go back to the original X-Box dashboard

Congratulations you have just flashed the X-Box Bios - no more modchip

if you need me to clarify any points above just leave a reply and i will try to help as best i can

btw: both me and my friend were very pissed when we attempted this and as such were not at our best - if we can do it like this with the crappy instructions on the net then you should be able to do it sobur using our instructions above.

BTW: Number 54 can be skipped if you want to leave the EvolutionX software on the Hard Drive

enjoy,

Well thats nice that someone wrote all that out......that seems to be the first time I saw it written out so well. Only drawback is your subject title which means people might miss reading it.

I'll stick to plumbing, it's soooo much easier:bouncing:

so let me get this straight, once you do all this you wont need the modchip anymore? you will be able to play all backups with no problem, bare with me i am a "newbie" to xbox.

Mystical_2K Aug 25, 2002 06:26 AM

yes m8, the modchip is not needed anymore - i can play every game i want

romeopm Aug 25, 2002 09:43 AM

ok so lets say i have the enigmah installed on my xbox and all of a sudden my friend wants to be able to play backups on his xbox too, does this mean that i can do the process on mine and then install my modchip on his and then do the same process on his and we will be both fine?

let me ask you this what if i wanted to play games off the hardrive and play backups and orginals is that possible?
