Hey everyone,

I've just received an Xbox Crystal,

I've got already one, which is v1.6,

for this the Softmod Installer 5.01 said it's an v1.1 (0b),

AID and XBMC says it's v1.4,

but the strange thing is: the BIOS is unknown,
while my other v1.6 has a BIOS 5838 Retail ?!

I also never heard of a v1.4 Crystal Edition (both Xbox's are from 2004)?
(Xbox never been open, untouched)

Quote:
If you have a "Crystal Special Edition" Xbox (translucent white), you either have a version 1.5 or 1.6 which were made in weeks 32 to 34 of 2004.(Which is not on the list below)

http://www.xbox-linux.org/wiki/Xbox_Versions_HOWTO

so is it normal that the BIOS is not recognized?

thanks in advance,

take care,

Regards!

good to know Razz

did some googling and found out that the first Xbox crystals were v1.4, the newer ones v1.6,

someone even claimed that there are no v1.5 Crystal Xboxes, and that in that v1.5's production was quickly discontinued (probably failures/bugs/problems),

the dvd-drive is the same as my newer version, which is good, cause it plays everything, except for DVD-RW and DVD+RW,

cheers Wink
