Hi i am not completely new to the xbox modding scene but have been away for a while, i have an xecuter 2.6 lite and want to reflash the bios on the chip without having to buy a programmer to do this, as i set the fan speed too low and need to alter the bios file using evtool, i have looked at some obvious threads about flash bios (cromwell) and cannot find anything that explains how to make a flash bios bootdisk, maybe i am looking at the wrong threads i don't know but, i think i really need to alter the fan speed as it seems much faster with the m$ dash, evox is reporting major heat from cpu and mb (not sure if it's lying) nothing is locking up or crashing so i'm not sure but would like to alter the fan speed anywayz, please can somebody point me in the right direction for a flash bios boot disk please ( if there is such a thing) thanks in advance guys.

I don't think you get the just of this thread...what i am looking for is a way to reflash a modchip using a bootdisk as i have flashed a 1024kb bios already to my modchip, so that means the info(link) you gave me is useless, i already know how to flash a modchip using a bios bin file, i think most people with a hacked bios already on their modchip would know how to do the method you so kindly gave me the link for if they had already done that about 30 times...but thanx good try and i am grateful for the effort, and reply, can somebody please tell me how i make my xbox boot to cromwell (flash bios) with a boot cd-rw or do i have to buy a programmer to reflash if i haven't got cromwell(flash bios) on my modchip anymore...thanx again in advance.

Aaahh, misread your post.

Can you not just use FlashX?

Either from CDRW or load on to the XBOX and use from a dashboard.

With Flash-X you can now select which bank you wish to flash
whether its 256k, 512k or 1MB. Gone are the days of a bad flash,
now you simply program 256k or 512k at a time.


Installers who like to hot swap and flash their X2's will be
pleased to hear that the machine does not reboot once you have
flashed - so you can simply flash / hotswap / flash / hotswap
much faster than when the xbox rebooted each time you flashed.

You can select bios's stored on C, D, E & F drives (sub dir \bios)

Compatible with Xecuter2.x Lite / Lite Plus, and Xecuter2.x PRO.

Of course you can also run this from CDR / CDRW / DVDR without
having a custom dash installed and still flash your bios with
no problems - again great for installers in a hurry.

I think we really did fix it this time hehe wink.gif

It's not been a priority - but as we were writing something for X3
that used this code we thought we may as well release an actual
working FlashX smile.gif Tested it a LOT this week - we hope you enjoy
this release.

This is a problem for some

Thanx but thats not a boot disk...anywayz solved the problem by using ozx chip flasher disk, you can also use the aurasia generic flash disk works just as well, i haven't sorted out the ftp on my box yet as i just got another new one, but if anyone is worried about using up both banks and has not got a programmer this method works a treat for the xecuter 2.6 lite...flash 1.2 is for what i gather from the files is for puting on the hard disk...cheers for the replies guys, it's nice to know there are good people out there like yourselves when someone is in bother...thanx again.

If you got flashx from the usual sources the Rar contains 1 folder (media) containing a font and the defualt.xbe . Just create iso, burn cdrw and bobs your aunt.

At least you got it sorted anyway.
