|At the end of the day *any* xbox can run an X2 bios via TSOP if you want. Yes I know you can't then use live. If you want live, upgrade your chip so you can have an X2 & M$ bios at the same time. For the cost of a game, get an x2.3 and be done with it. I don't think it is worth development time when there are other alternatives out there.|
XBoxGeek has the right idea, but for a less permanent, easier, and safer alternative... why not just use the Phoneix Bios Loader:
1. Use XBTool to edit your favorite X2 BFM bios (presumibly a version with IGR)
You want to make sure that whatever your current modchip boots to is not in the list of dashes to boot. Write down whatever you set the first dash to.
2. Write down the name of your currently booting dash. Rename the dash you want to boot to the name you wrote down in step 1.
3. Rename the Phoneix Bios Loader xbe to the name you wrote down in step 2.
Or, those of you with older modchips COULD use your Christmas/birthday/piggy-bank money to get yourselves NEW MODCHIPS
It is my firm believe that IGR should not reside in the Dashboard, but in the bios itself. Team Xecuter has done a lot of hard work to give us IGR and while it may not be 100% perfect it still beats getting up off the couch 95% of the time.
If you don't want IGR you can always disable it with a specially named file. In fact, with some basic scripting features you could do this automatically for games that don't work with IGR? (Not sure if you need a reboot or not to disable/enable IGR with a file?)
I should mention that I haven't gotten around to trying unleashx, but so far I like what I've seen and heard.
In closing... Don't drive @unleashx crazy with requests for features that nobody needs (like in-dash IGR). There are better (in-bios) solutions available. Besides, the dash shouldn't even have IGR to begin with.
