I need my Xbox to boot without a DVD drive.

I have a softmodded box with XBMC dash. I wan't to get rid of the DVD drive and turn it into a slim box.
It has a 1.4v mb. I have soldered the points ready to flash the Tsop.

Can someone help with instructions on what to do next. I am confused with what I have read in the tutorials and I don't won't to mess this up.

Thanks to anyone that can help me with this.

Quads, I think you must be the only person out there with that version, lol .... I changed it a bit and it now uses the game 007 Agent under fire and now has support for Winbond TSOPs - so, zamfret, if you have 007 AUF get back to me and ill send you the files.

Thanks for your reply.

My box has been soft modded using sid 5.01 (I think) with splinter cell pal version. It has XBMC installed as the dash from AID 4.2 light. I also have Aid 4.5.

Can I use this and what addons would I put on the disc or can I ftp files to my Xbox from the addons and which ones. Then how would I use them?

Right, if you are already softmodded just install EvolutionX as an application

FTP into your xbox and there will be a bios folder within evolutionx (eg : E:/Apps/EvoX/Bios ) put any bios files in there (there are bios files for download in `the usual places` or within the AID download)

Run EvolutionX and (i think) under the `settings` menu it will list Bios, simply pick the one you require and the EvolutionX dashboard will flash it to your TSOP

You need a 256kb bios for your v1.4 xbox, good choices are the x2 4981 or 4983 or the iND-BiOS 5003.

I have installed evolutionx as an application.

No joy. It didn't show up in my programs. I used filemanager to start the default.xbe file. No good, it boots back to XBMC.

Any ideas?

Is there another program I can install to flash?

Also. which of the 256kb x2 4983 bios should I use ( x2 4983.06 or x2 4983 .67)

Please help and thanks

Hmmm, im unsure as to why EvolutionX wont launch .....

you could use the AID iso updater (included in the AID download) to install the "bios pack addon" to your AID iso image, then burn that to disc, that will install an EvolutionX based flash utility to your AID disc.
or, you could download the "EurAsia pro generic flash disc" , burn it to DVD and also burn the bios of your choice to another DVD and use them to flash with.
or, you could use Slayers disc to do the flashing.

as for your bios choice, it depends on the size of your hard drive, the .06 bios gives you an F:/ partition and is usefull on drives upto 137gb, if you use the .67 bios it gives you a G:/ partition on the space above 137gb - its up to you, both will work equally well, the .67 is handy to prevent data corruption if you have a much bigger hard drive.


EDIT : PM me your email address, ill send you a little flash utility.

Thanks user1. You have been very helpfull.

I used your flash utility and I got this in a blue box:

Flash Bios
Manufatures ID da device 1D 8c
Flash Type Windbond - W29f020
Error reading bios file

I also used Slayers and got the same or similar thing.

What am I doing wrong?

Really? No need for me to upgrade to your newest work, this one works great for me, I've used it probably ten times already.

My flasher and SlaYers are both based on the EvolutionX dashboard, EvolutionX cannot flash Winbond TSOPs, in the menu of the flasher it says "Flash Winbond TSOP" if you select that it launches the Eurasia Raincoat flasher and will flash the x2 4981 bios to your TSOP.

When I run the flasher it doesn't have the flash winbond tsop option and in the bios and IP box it has bios unknown.

What can I do?

Thanks user1 for the new flasher.

When I try the flash windbond option, I get a submenu with flash 256kb windbond, but I can't select it. The only controller button that works is (b) which just takes me back the main menu.

Have I done something wrong?
