We don't want to ask for much but to be credited for our work & the work OzXodus has put into developing the Xenium.
I know they didn't mean it like that, but anyways...

|Xenium Supoort (reboot to Xenium-OS & hopefully more features to come|
would it not boot to the xeniums os with reboot.xbe?
i dont want to put this down but the main reason for the xeniums os is it's based on cromwell and loads before your custom bios to allow you to fix a blank EEprom and so on.
so i cant see any reason other then flashing the chip or playing around with the EEprom on the fly like configmagic and because the xeniums os would boot before your custom dash would it not be easer to use that?
anyway i hope they find some cool reason for this

just my 2 cents

|I think that they should have a way of disabling the OS, and have two pads you can solder together or something if the wanted to stay dipswitch less, that would allow you to boot Xenium OS so you could fix EEPROM, or reflash the bios, etc.|
just my 2 cents
i see what you mean but the main reason for the Xenium is the os. if it was turned off how would you change bios banks and if it had two pads to solder you would need to solder them before you could flash the chip but then again i think it has a recovery switch with cromwell that could do it
also a on/off switch would be nice but then it would not be dipswitch less like you said
off topic but i had a v1.4 m/b with a blank EEPROM and looking at how the xeniums os will work i would need to put the xenium into a working xbox to backup the EEPROM then put the xenium into my xbox to fix it so it would be nice to see the xeniums os flash the EEPROM from the dvd drive to save swaping the chip around.
ps. i think you should team up with smartXX aswell and do some mp3 shit

|the work OzXodus has put into developing the Xenium|
ozXodus never "developped" anything.
They took old Sources from the broken partnership with smartXX team, and "finished" (err...kind of) "their" product
at last xenium will loose,
all xenium needs is people writing code for the chip,
as they theirselves are not really able to make the features they announced on their own.
its pretty much crap, what you people read on XS mainpage
read the true story on www.smartxx.com

but hey, who cares....
at the end xecuter4 beats them all, right?
just kidding - i dont know WHY the partnership broke,
but it is confirmed, that the xenium-on screen display is 1:1 the same except the background image
and...i do not have a reason to lie...
ask ozXodus for a reason

i am "kind of" familiar with the smartXX team...
they made a good piece of hardware with their PC-BioXX
they made a good piece of Hardware with their PC-NitroXX
they made a good piece of Hardware with their IR-Mod (2 free configurable lines)
ok, you make differences between ozXchip II and the Xenium.
but listen between the lines, and with which statements ozXodus is going into market...
they told smartXX team took "Their" (ozxodus') features and went on with the dev' of smartXX...
and thats in fact is a lie.
it turns out, that is exactly the other way...they took (in fact old and buggy) sources from
their co-op with smartXX team.
so for me personally it doesnt matter, if its called xenium or ozX II
hope you understand my pint of view.
and furthermore this isnt exactly the right place for discussing that
its a nexGen thread
horney, i will contact you on irc, lets have some smalltalk
Posted 21 January 2004 - 04:35 PM
when they split into two groups they both used the same sources to make the os only the smartxx team has worked a bit harder to get more harware and os features so to tell you the truth i'm starting to look at the Xenium as just a beta version of the smartxx so ill wait and see before i make my order.

Isn't this a 'power cycle'?

Rodent can i ask u something if smartx or what ever created the chip then why the fuck call it an ozxchip 2? This is going 2 lead into 1 big battle u might know the smartxx people but i personaly know the ozxchip team so i know the truth but seriously i dont give a shit any more.
