A Working Alternative To Qwix
Posted 24 November 2004 - 08:44 PM
While looking around the usual places I came across a program called C-XBox Tool 2. The newest version has boost mode which has given me the same speeds I used to get with Qwix when it was working.
The only two features it is missing is the ablity to patch and titles the default.xbe during the ftp process. You can currently ftp the xbe off the Xbox after the transfer is complete and then patch and retitle is before reuploading it to the Xbox. And the Manage Titles abilty that Qwix has is also not present.
I will not post a link for download because the archive contains MXM xbes which I believe may be considered illlegal, but just look in the usual places or your favorite web search engine and I'm sure you'll find it.
So if your having problems with Qwix give C-XBox Tool 2 a try. If you like it email the author the missing features as suggestions and see if they get added in a new version.

But still I found a working alternative and just wanted others to know about it and if someone finds the application useful. Then the post wasn't a waste of my time.

Without the ability to reproduce it, I'm not gonna spend time speculating on the bug.

I've had the unfortunate need to replace two motherboards in the last three years, both due to bad capicitors. One directly, one indirectly.
Every time you replace a motherboard you need to do a repair install of WinXP. If you have a non-OEM copy of WinXP you can call MS to reactivate WinXP, no problems. If you have an OEM copy and your hardware hasn't changed, no problem.
To do a repair install of WinXP, first, make a bootable WinXP with SP2 slipstreamed in. Google it, you'll find out how to do it. Boot off of the CD. If you have any funky hardware that WinXP doesn't recognize, press F6 to specify hardware during install. You will eventually get to a screen that lets you choose between the Recovery Console _R_ or regular setup (I think it's enter for that). Do a regular setup. You will eventually get to a screen that tells you it has found an already installed OS and it asks if you want to Repair _R_. Select Repair, and it will erase all your hardware data and delete all the MS-supplied files but keep everything else intact. It will then merge the existing registry information, including user information, into the new install. Think of it as a spring cleaning.
I have done this every year or year and a half, and I'm on the same basic XP install that I loaded in February of 2002. Keep in mind I don't use my PC for a lot other than websurfing, email, managing the XBOX, etc., but I used to be an avid PC gamer. That changed once I got my XBOX and my 50" Sony HD set :)

What works for me:
Don't use AVA! Ironically enough, Qwix uploads just fine to UnleashX
Don't use Qwix! FlashFXP uploads just fine to AVA..
Qwix + Ava will hang at 0% of the upload.
I will also try C-Xbox too though, because I'm not sure that UnleashX supports boost mode.
