I just got a xbox that has a softmod I think it boots up with a red x and a little green guy and it has a evox.ini file on the C Drive. The drive was flakey so I made a boot disk with xboxhdm 1.9 and made a new drive. Then I copied the contents of C and E and then stuck it back in the box and all is well it works great I install XBMC and have booting up to the media center. Here lies the problem::


Problem when I take one of my sons games and use DVD2XBOX and them go and try and run the game it freezes I tried BattleFront 2 and the Unreal Champion 2 and both with the same result Battlefront freezes at the Dolby screen and Unreal freezes in about the same spot.

If I try and run the games on the DVD drive they freeze in the same spot. I'm thinking I need to redo the bois but I and clueless on this issue. If I go into XBMC it says MOD CHIP SmartXX I don't think that is right but heck I'm new to the MOD Scene I do know when I total messed up the dashboard it booted to a red FTP screen and I could get back in and reload the files. I tried dvd2xbox 0.7.5 but it just sits there so I installed 0.7.3 and it works I redid battlefront II but it still dies in the same spot.

So I need some pointers in the right direction. I also have the Evoltion remote boot cd that is working if that matters. Below is what I get from system info:

Bios V1.0
ModChip ST M29F080 series Winbound W49F020T
Detected BIOS: Unkown! Add. MD5 from log to BiosIDs.int!
40 gig drive to start

Please help

First try and clear out you cash partitions (x,y,z).

If you're not sure of what type of mod you have, you can alway open up your box to see if there is a chip inside.

Those are cashe partitions that all xboxes have. You can access them with AID and I think UnleashX also.

How do I upgrade my bios? It looks like I have M5 in there how do I install M7 or M8

I have a boot disk that has the option to flash bios but when I select it no file appears.

delete all files in

E:\CACH\
X:\
Y:\
Z:\

and to flash new bios you must know what size of bios you are using, and if your TSOP still have the bridge points for it to be write enable, cause do to the xbox info you gave us, it's a flashed TSOP mod.

Hint: Windbond is mostly a 1mb, but don't count on my info, please refer to manuals that specify hardware of your xbox to determine the correct size and adjustments.

It is a TSOP from what I can tell. It have the Con Video Chip the GPU has a fan on it and from what I can tell R7D3 is bridged together as for the bottom I did not take it out that far I assuming the jumers are on the bottom as well.

Then it boots it boots with a big red X and and little green guy and it says xbox-secno or something like that.

How can I upgrade the TSOP? And what version do I need to do it or how can I tell the size of it?

I believe AID has this option, but i'm not too certain, the other thing you can is this.

run Evox on your xbox, and make backups.
see what size is your bios.bin backup evox made.
than you know what size of bios you'll need.
take evox and make sure you have the option to flash bios, or download
the fixed INI, and put your bios in \bios\ folder, name doesn't matter.

if Evox is installed on C as C:\evoxdash.xbe, than your bios folder will be in C:\bios\ bios name.bin

and run evox again, and select to flash bios, select your new bios, and let it run, and it should work like a charm, I do this my self.

I did just as you said and BAM I'm running evox M8 now. What bios is better? It was a 1MB bios file.

Before I would run Battlefront II and it would hang on the intro screen.

I erased it and installed DVD2XBOX 0.7.5 that would not run before and it worked right away. Ripping my sons Battlefront II again and I will see what happens.
