Help...evox & Ftp Problems!
Posted 21 December 2003 - 04:18 PM
I have read all the tutorials i can find about these problems, but still cannot get them running properly!!!
I have burned the EvoX onto a CD-RW disk using both Nero and Easy CD Creator, but cannot get the Xbox to install it!! It keeps saying that it can't recognoise the disk!! I used the same type of disk for the X2 Bios, which worked ok. I have put on a dummy file of over 250Mb as well as the Evox ISO i made with xboxisotool-1.1.
I also can't FTP to the Xbox. I have used IE, made a network place, FlaseFXP & CuteFTP. None of these work. I have the Xbox running thru a Linksys router, and tried a static IP, then tried using automatic IP. The auto IP is 192.168.1.101, 255.255.255.0 Gateway 192.168.1.1 (the router).
When i connect with FlashFXP it says it's connected, but then just times out!
I have McAfee Virus and firewall installed, and have tried turning these off, but it still doesn't work!

This is what i have in my folder that is made into the ISO file: Bios, Skin & Trainers folders. dummy .zip file, default.xbe, EvolutionX Build 3935.nfo, evox.ini, original-readme.txt, readme.txt, Trainers Source.zip.
would one of those be causing a problem????

I was trying to install EvoX when the Xbox froze, so i restarted it, and now all i get is a blue screen!!!
When i burn the *.iso image am i suppose to double click that file which will open nero or Easy CD creator, or do you open nero first then add the *.iso file to the disk?? I read somewhere that you should not be able to read the disk from explorer, and by doing the first method you can't.
I have tried to reinstall the bios, buts it just stays at a blue screen!!

also the ip changes because you dont have Static Ip checked off in the evox settings

Now as i said i don't get anything on the screen when i start the Xbox.
I now realise that i can't ftp to it until i install EvoX.
I am trying to burn a fresh bios disk. But i also want to know if i should double click the iso file, or just burn it straight onto the disk as is.

-You succesfully flashed your bios using an Evox or Xecuter bios.
-You burnt an Evox boot cd but in the process of getting this disc to read you are now getting a blue screen.
If you're still getting the blue screen, you will not have to re-flash your bios. More than likely this is just a problem with the connetion between your xbox and your tv. What happens when you turn the modchip off and turn on the xbox? Still a blue screen? If so, its a connection problem. If it were a problem with corrupted files or the like then the xbox would display a message telling you that your xbox is in need of service.
Now as far as burning the disc. Make sure you re-name the evoxdash.xbe file to default.xbe otherwise it will not load. Make sure you are burning it as an image using the slowest speed, disc-at-once, no-multi-session. Make sure it is a CD-RW. If this still doesn't work, try different brands of media. I have had good luck with Memorex.

Yes to the second point.
the Xbox seemed to work ok with the chip off, but after a min or so it just freezes. it does that with the chip on too. Quite often it will freeze at the start-up bit too!!...like almost always!!!
i got the EvoX screen up twice now, but both times it freezes after a few seconds, then i have to turn the Xbox off again.

Cheers and thanks for all the advice!!
(Newbies (like ME!!!) Take note.....PUT THE COVER BACK ON!!!!!!)
