Your chip has to be in Mode 4 to be able to flash from Evox.

Mode 4 (Dip switch 1 OFF & 2 OFF) (LED: Orange flashing) Write enable
In this mode the Matrix is always active but has the ability to be flash updated via
DVD Rom. We do not recommend you leave this mode on permanently, a bad update
of the flash will mean you will have to reprogram the Matrix via the programmer.

Tutorial written by : XanTium / Prodigal

What you need :

*A modchip that can be flashed via EvolutionX. Only Xodus/Matrix and X-ecuter2 can be flashed via xbox software. All other LPC mods (X-ecuter , OpenXbox/PC-BioXX , Pandora2) can NOT be flashed directly via evox.

*EvolutionX v1.8.2812 or later installed on your xbox HD

1/ Upload bios
Connect to your xbox (ftp) and go to drive "C".
Make a directory called "bios" (without the quotes) in the root. (c:/bios/)
Upload 1 or more bios/kernel versions into this directory. (max 256kb for Xodus/Matrix & 512k for Xecutor2 (per bank))

2/ Check mode
If you have a Matrix/Xodus , make sure your modchip is in mode 4 (write enabled).
If you have a Xecutor2, make sure the the Flash jumper is Off (Flash enable).

3/ Check EvolutionX .ini file
Make sure that the following line is inserted in the .ini file under [BIOS] section:

"Flash = 0xbf61,"SST - 49LF020",0x40000" for Matrix/Xodus
"Flash = 0x01d5,"XECUTER2",0x100000" for Xecutor2

If you don't, you will have the following error "Unknown Flash Type"

3/ Flash modchip
Restart your Xxbox.
In EvoX go to "System Utils" > "Flash BIOS" (standard location if you didn't change this in the evox.ini).
All bios versions uploaded in step1 will now be listed.
Select the bios you want and press "A" and then confirm your action by pressing "Y".
It will flash to your new bios/kernel in less then 5secs, and you Xbox will switch off.

4/ Put mode back
Xodus/Matrix: put mod back to mode1/2/3 , so it's write protected (modchip can't be flashed without you know it)
Xecutor2: put flash jumper back ON , so it's write protected (modchip can't be flashed without you know it)
