Experimenting With Oct 2003 Xbox
Posted 08 January 2004 - 07:48 PM
Now here's the question, is it possible to load PBL as an app, I seem to be getting it, but I want to know if it is worth forging ahead along these lines, to load pbl to try different bioses and load evox (loading from evox first into pbl, to reload evox with different bios.) until it works, then put it back to PBL-evox from audio exploit once it works.
Or can someone tell me why evox doesn't recognise dvd games in drive, and how to fix it.

I've also used FlashFXP to access D: to backup games.
Most of my games seems OK except for FIFA2003 that used to work, now became unreadable, even in MS dash. May be due to damaged disc, but yet to find out.

EDIT still get flickering screen, and just a white line and green line visible, goes thru phoenix splash, some writing flicks up (all flickery obviously due to PBL problem we all know about) and then screen just flickers with green and white line. Using PBL 1.3.5i, X2 4979 BFM (4979 repack, altered with xbtool to set bfm flag) and evox 3935.

If your boot.cfg RC4Key, EEPROMKey1_0, and EEPROMKey1_1 have keys that consist of all 0's (0x00 0x00 ... 0x00), then you need to find the correct keys and place them on the proper line. Another thing you should check is the Romfile line. Make sure the BIOS you're choosing to autoload is either renamed on your HD to the default "xboxrom.bin" or change the boot.cfg to match your BIOS file.
As for your previous question about running PBL (1.3.5i) as an app, it should be possible (I've run PBL on a chipped box as an app). If you have EvoX automatically add APPs from your E:\APPS folder, you would copy all the files to a folder (in this case called PBL) in your APPS folder. For example, you would add these files:
Now depending on which exploit you use, you will have to sign PBL's default.xbe correctly. You mentioned you were using the audio exploit, so in this case you would have to use a tool such as XBEDump to resign PBL's default.xbe with the audio signature. After you restart and refresh your EvoX's menu, under the Apps section you should see a new entry "Phoenix" (for PBL 1.3.5i).

And I'm renaming any bios to xboxrom.bin. It's nice to have a checklist tho, case I miss something
EDIT Using mxcp I can get rc4 (I guess it's right) but all bios tools are saying they're finding an error in the bios (4979BFM) when I try anything else. XBTool won't open it, and logfile says "Extracting compressed KERNEL image... Invalid config params for kernel extract!"
This is WAY too deep for me now

In other words, once you find the right keys for those lines, you're all set

Got rc4 key from mcxp and put it in place in bfm config, and moved bfm config to configs folder. this BIOS stuff is complicated, anyone would think M$ didn't want us to do these hacks

I just wanted to clear up that he should be okay using the bfm.ini (it shouldn't cause an serious problems).
P.S. I want to say thank you for all the work you've done here on X-S, Mordenkainen. I've been following a lot of the topics for a while now, and I learned a great deal from all your insight (not to mention your elaborate MA Audio Exploit packages).

Good to hear a work of thanks every now and then.
