Default xbox bios binary file always 256k?

sponsored links

 
Are the bios binary files always 256k in size? I heard some bios files are 1M, or 512k? My friend is considering buying the matrix chip but is afraid that future bios releases will be larger than 256k in size.

Thank you for your replies.

go here: ***********.xbox-scene.com/articles/split-bios.php for a tutorial, its easy. The only question I ask is how do you flash the matrix chip exactly, I have downloaded the milksop programme but as soon as you execute the icon it runs for about a second in a black box and then stops and shuts the box down. What do you have to do?

Meerdorf, you have to run it in PURE DOS to get it to work right, which you cannot do in XP (Not sure about ME), so you will need a DOS bootdisk.

Don't need dos bootdisk. Just hit start - run - type command and hit enter.
