Hey guys, did a search on google and found you guys, hopefully I'm at the right place.

Anyways I just installed a Xecuter 2.3B Lite on my Xbox v1.0 or v1.1 I'm not sure which. I got everything working, mod chip and front controls light up, dvd-rom ejects and asks for what bios to flash. I'm doing a bit of reading but maybe you guys could summarize what I gotta do next.

I know i gotta do a few things here...
1. I'm looking to get an up to date bios...
2. I wanna install my 120GB maxtor hd that I recently swapped from my gaming rig (just installed 2 SATA WD Raptors Raid 0). Its not formatted yet as I have no clue what I have to do to prep it for the xbox.
3. Somehow I wanna backup all my xbox games to that HD so I don't have to be swappin out dvds all the time.

Any comments would be appreciated thanks!

hi arct and welcome to xbox-hq.. Smile

Ok. Sounds like you need to burn a BIOS CD so your xbox modchip can read the disk and then flash your modchip..

When you buy a modchip it is shipped with the 'CROMWELL BIOS' flashed onto it.. This bios is a LEGAL bios and only allows your xbox to boot XBOX LINUX.. Thats why you need to flash your modchip with a BIOS CD..

Heres the link you need mate. Lucky your a VIP straight away so it will save you heaps of time:
http://xbox-hq.com/html/downloadsvip-cat87.html

Heres a tutorial that talks about how to flash a XECUTOR from the beginning in details:
http://xbox-hq.com/html/xbox-tutorials-73.html

Download this iso and burn it to CDRW and boot it in your xbox..

Some Notes:
You may have to try a couple of different brands of CDRW before your xbox will read it.. XBOXES are very touchy when reading burnt cdrw/dvd-r etc..

YOUR XBOX WILL NOT READ A BURNT CDR UNLESS YOU HAVE A SAMSUNG DVDROM DRIVE INSTALLED!

You can find best media for your xbox tutorial here:
http://xbox-hq.com/html/xbox-tutorials-76.html

XBOX-HQ AUTO INSTALLER:
btw.. Once your booting backups etc on your xbox with your modchip working fine use the XBOX-HQ AUTO INSTALLER to install the EVOX DASHBOARD and many apps to your xbox. You just burn the .iso to DVD-R/CDRW and boot it in your xbox with your modchip turned on!

Then just Follow the menus!! Smile

hope weve been some help!

Enjoy the VIP Services!


cheers,

I just modded my XBox with an Xecuter 2.3 Lite. I then made a CDRW of the files at http://www.xbox-hq.com/html/downloadsvip-cat87.html. After I put the CDRW in the XBox, it will eventually give me the CD ROM label and then just sit there. WHAT NEXT???

You need to find a manual on your OS and how your modchip bios is flashed. I always thought that the Xecuter chips had to be flashed from a programmer. I have never installed one of those chips, so maybe there is another way.

Hopefully, one of our Xecuter pro's will jump in and guide you.

good luck

I flashed the excutor 2.3B lite. The bios.bin file was like 256 k. Burned that onto a disc along with a dummy file. The xbox found the bios and was updating, then turned off. I turn the xbox back on, it comes back on the cromwell screen and asks for another cd: flashing mode... I thought I already flashed it... Anyways can't seem to get past this point.

EDIT:

It might be that my bank switch is broke. This explains why I can't get out of the flashing loop. So the question here is I need the actual X2 bios file so I can use the X2 Bios Manager and load it on both banks instead of one. That way It'll boot up no matter what. So anyone have the latest X2 Bios file? or a good bios...

EDIT:

Nevermind, found it... wasn't getting access to it at first ...weird Sad Anyways everything is working now. Thanks for all your help... i guess ;p

Ok, first off for the Xecuter series of chips, the inital bios has to be a 1024Kb one. Try it and see if it flashes correctly
