regarding flashing my bios.

i edited the 4981.06-fixed bios in XBTool to up the fan speed and change the colors.

I then made it 512k in X2 Bios Manager.

I am going to burn it on a cdrw named BIOS with nero and add the dummy.bin file as well.

Was this the correct procedure?

fyi the chip is an xecuter 2.3b lite

Also, in the usual place we look for things there is an info file saying there was an md5 fix and gives the numbers. Do I use those instaed of the md5 that xbtool gives me the option of using "copy to clipboard"

Thanks for your time

As far as I know you did everything right. If that doesn't work try making an xiso of the bios and then burn to the cdrw. I'm not sure about the md5 thingy though. Maybe it's just some kind of bug. Why don't you just get the new xecuter 4983's? Then you wont have to worry about that md5 shit.

because 4983.xx doesnt work w/ xbtool...

what exactly is the problem? or is there one? everything sounds fine to me, you dont need to make an xiso.

EDIT: forgot to say, you just put the md5 sum for the fixed bios in evox.ini so a label will show up instead of "unkown bios". if you arent using evox or dont care about the label, you dont have to worry about it.

rename dummy.bin to abc.bin, just so it gets burned before bios.bin (in alphabetical order)

Thanks guys, no there is no problem so far. just wanted to make sure I did it correctly.

Now about the md5 thing.

When I open the fixed 4981 bios I get this md5 from xbtool:

After I edit in xbtool and then change the size in X2 Bios Manager I get this if I check it in XBTool:

from fixed text file I found in the usual place:

Just wondering which one I should put in evox.ini

Thanks all

note reburning dummy as abc.bin

Just wondering which one I should put in evox.ini

After you edit a bios in XBTool the MD5 is changed - use the one from XBTool for the 256kb version.

You would probably want to give it a different description in Evox.ini anyway:
eg. X24981 Fan 40% Blue (or whatever changes you made).

Ok thanks...

so I am understanding that in my evox.ini I will use the one I get after it is edited in xbtool and then x2 bios manager and then re-opened in XBTool to get the md5.

Rom = "X2 4981.06 - Fixed Fan 50% Blue",0x36208a4ccde7a374f2644b8f7e90258d

Yeah it's blue... ha guess everyone makes it blue.
