Hi guys. Wont bore you with the whole story but if said have struggled with the whole modding thing it would be an understatment.

Brief History
xbox v1.1 Bought with x2.3b lite already installed.
Used AIDeluxe 3.0 to upgrade improve etc.
Installed PBL from AID disk all went tits up Exclamation Exclamation

Where Im up 2
Bought x2 programmer
Made several unsucceesful attempts at flashing bios.
Nearly smacked wife 4 coming out with such classics as "It cant be that hard" & "Do you want me 2 get my dad 2 have a look at it"

Anyway as it stands I've managed to flash bank 1 with x2-4983.06 512k
And bank 2 has flashbios 3.03 on it which flashes ok via web browser.
Ive locked the HDD & when turn off x2 the ms dash boots as should do, which means more often than not my original games work ok.

The Problem
No backup DVD's or bootdisks such as AID 3.0 will work.

Any ideas folks pleassseee Crying or Very sad

Well did you install a dash yet?? It sounds as if you turned your chip off and booted to the ms dash. you need your chip on to read disc like that.

Try going to bank one and put in the AID 3 disc and install all the dashes...I would use evox and then you can just ftp the bios you want and reflash via dash. as for bank two you haven't flashed that yet if its still asking for it

Then you say

Had kinda left that with Flashbios 3.03 on there as its easier to use the http flash than keep pulling apart xbox and attaching chip to programmer.

Basically in the hope that if someone knows another bios which will work, i'll try that. Anyway like said prob me whos got wrong end of stick n cheers for the reply.

Ok, if your using flashbios, lets make sure that your flashing this right:

Did you create a bios that will work for you? Needs to be 256k and be able to boot from media so that it will read the AID3 disk. Have you been able to do this?

I would probably start with thex2 4983.67 bios. Open the bios in xbtool(available from the xbox-hq pc-essentials kit), set the BFM flag on it, and then save the bios.

set the chip to your flashbios bank, boot the xbox. set the chip to the first back, and then use the http flash procedure. Open the tray, drop in AID3, and do a cold boot. It should boot the aid disk and let you install a dask to your E: partition.

Then, use evtool to open the m8plus bios and adjust the boot order to boot from your e: for the appropriate file name(evoxdash.xbe, defualt.xbe, etc).

Reflash bank 1, using the same method as above, and you SHOULD be good to go.

Keep in mind that I've never flashed either the m8 for the 4983 bios before, but that seems the best way to go for me. Someone else may be able to shine some light on this.

[EDIT]

BTW, all these bios come with the AID3 files when you extract the .rar file.
