Re: Bios Question

Currently I am using my Trusty to format the drives as that has a Sata adapter as well, but ultimately for the 360 cased Xbox to be viable it needs to be able to prepare the 360 drives itself, so I either need a bios that is capable of booting to the memory card or i need to start making a Dvd drive...

Bios Question

Is there a bios that can have a memory card as the primary boot then say the hdd as a fallback? I am going to try and finish off my 360 cased xbox but am not sure if I can be bothered to try and make a dvd drive fit in there as I will need one if i can't find another simple way to format and partiti...

Re: Softmodded XBOX Bios upgrade?

I think you may have more luck over at coin ops forums on this one but if re scanning your database doesn't help then what else could it be? i only have 1 softmod xbox but it is in bits.

Re: Xbox repair/debug?

But they're neither rare or expensive, just get another one and try again, when you get the bug later on you can always dig it out of your loft and have a go at repairing it. I think every xbox modder should mess up at least 1 board, that way the temptation to have a go at adding another 64MB will a...

Re: How I Repaired My Faulty MS Wired Controllers

I always wrap mine around the front too as it seems to do no harm to them. I always chop the white connector apart with side cutters and unsolder all the parts then re-solder the wires into the holes ;) Way more of my pads have cracked circuit boards then broken wires, had a couple with collapsed th...

Re: Modchip Data

swapping a bios will not corrupt your hdd, if another bios has a different hdd table then it will not be able to read your F and G drive, thats why we always say to put your bios flashing apps and bioses on E as it will be able to be read that partition no matter what and you can reflash your backup...

Re: Bricked Xbox following XBMC install errors 9 and 12

Sure you can use that drive in that xbox, if you have a more recent mod chip than the old skool 29 wire jobbie you can update it if you have a 29 wire jobbie with a bit of extra work you can disable it and flash the tsop.
