My chip came flashed with Xecuter 4979. That's what i was told and im sure it's right.

Anyway I installed my chip etc.

When i turn on my xbox with bank 1, i get a blue X Logo with Xecuter 2 underneath.

When i turn on with bank 2, i get a green X logo with Xecuter 2 underneath.

I used slayers to test bios and it said unknown (it does this with the 4979 i think).

How can I upgrade my bios (all the steps involved lol?) to 4981, as im going to install a 120gb hard drive as soon as i get my stuff for FTPing.

I want to play on live, and if i locked the hard drive could i do so with a chipped box, because i could turn it off and boot the MS dash?

If i was to upgrade could i FTP a new bios and use slayers to flash my chip?

Thankyou.

Best Way : Ftp The Bio 4981 To The Bios Folder In The C:\Bios\4981.bin And Flash Your Mod With EvoX. And yes You Can Turn Off The Mod And Lock The Hdd To Play On Live.

slayers is just an auto installer of other software.
you can either create a boot disk to flash your chip or just ftp the 4981 to your xbox then use the flash bios setting in evox. You could also use FlashX if you have a different dash you'd rather boot to.

if you go to teamxecutor.com, they have excellent tutorials on how to flash almost any of there chips using almost any method. you can also check the tutorials on xbox-scene.com, they should have something.

because thats hat whoever flashed your chip decided to do, either to give you an option of which you prefer or to simply distinguish the 2 banks
