I enstalled the phoenix bios a while back and my Xbox worked perfect for a long time. But I didnt use it for a long time and just recently I hooked it back up and it dosent boot. It keeps looping and looping for about 6 hours and finally brings up a blank screen and the light is flashing red and green. It also wont boot regular xbox games. I used the 007 hack when mooding it and I have a v1.1 xbox. Can someone please help or is my xbox fried?

After using the 007 gamesave hack, what exploit did you install? Fonts or Audio? If fonts, what fonts did you use?

I used the Bert and Ernie reloaded exploit with phoenix bios, and yes I did have it unplugged for the time but ever since I have installed the phoenix bios it hasnt looped on me till now, and before when it looped it would finally boot up evox now it just boots a blank screen and i cant ftp from the blank screen Ive already tried.

We should put this in the faq page or something because I found a solution to my problem, and I have saw like 5 other posts on it none with a solution. I did three things I dont know which one fixed it and it could be a combonation of all of them but anyway heres what I did: First I plugged my ethernet cable from the Xbox into my hub which is connected to my dsl modem, second I unplugged my Xbox from the surge protector and plugged it directly into the wall, and finally I put a dvd in the disk drive. It ran for about 6 hours and finally came out of the loop into evox and not a blank screen!!!! Ever since it has booted on first try and believe me I will never leave it unplugged again. Thanks to all of you who tried to help.

P.S. I know its not just the dvd in the drive or just the ethernet cause I tried them each by themselves with no sucess.
