Hi there,

Some guy softmodded my xbox (v1.1) 7 years ago, and then I got into messing with it, but I dunno much about what he did. Right now I've got PBL-Metoo installed that kicks an X2 4980 (I think!) bin that's in the E:Systeme folder. I'm trying to update the bios to the latest X2 5035 (with F taking all the space of 160 gig drive) and change the main dash to XBMC from UnleashX. I'd also like to update PBL-Metoo if that makes any difference, though I've only been able to find a PBL 1.41 at the usual place and no PBL-Metoo anywhere, maybe I'm just not looking in the right place.

I don't want to risk having nothing work, so I've changed the config file for PBL to boot a different bios when dvd tray is open. The bios is X2.5035.137.bin from the AID DVD, with the x2config.ini in F looking for XBMC in e:apps/xbmc/default.xbe (and unleashx as a backup second dash). When the xbox boots with the dvd tray open, it just hangs at the Xbox bootup screen. DVD tray closed works normally and launches UnleashX 0.37.

I can't find any tutorials for PBL specifically with softmods and have searched a lot. I figured the bios may not be BFM (what's that mean anyway?) but I can't get any bios to open with xbtool, just gives me this error:
Extracting FBL image...
Extracting 2BL image...
Decrypting 2BL image...
Extracting compressed KERNEL image... Invalid config params for kernel extract!

I've downloaded the config.rar from the usual place and replaced the config files that came with xbtool 1.0.23a and entered the RC4 key that I got from the PBL-Metoo config.

Anyhoo, I'm thoroughly confused, any help would be appreciated!

Thanks in advance!

A lot has happened in the 7yrs since your xbox got modded, I think the best thing to do is install an up to date softmod like SID or Krayzies these softmods use NKPatcher to alter the bios in memory rather than replacing it with a hacked bios like the Pheonix Bios Loader does.

If you are sticking with things the way they are, try renaming the default.xbe file for XBMC to evoxdash.xbe - thats what the x2 5035 bios will be looking for ..... I think you should also rename the bios to xboxrom.bin and stick it in the same directory as PBL.

sorry i couldnt of been more helpful

BFM = Boot From Media
