more than likely you're just using the wrong version of evtool.. give it a quick read-thru again and double-check which version you need for your bios, i swear i put that in there..

and everyone else, glad i could be of some help!!

Yeah, use 1.0.8 if you're using M8_v1.6...if you're using any other it should work fine with 1.0.9. wink.gif

You're trying to open xecuter bios with Evox tool which is used for evox M8 bioses. Download Xb tool(bios editing too) and it should work for you. wink.gif EVTool is for Evox M8 bioses, Xb Tool is for other bioses(like xecuter).
Or get evox M8 bios like in this guide(just be carefull to get the right one comparing to your xbox version...read the tutorial through precisely). wink.gif

if your box is a 1.6 or 1.6b, then ignore the temp.. it doesn't work right.

as for your hdd, you can create a G: if you want to, but i personally prefer to leave it all on F: .. evtool/xbtool has the option to set it however you want

Excellent post. Definitely helped out a lot. One quick question though, I have a 1.6 and will be ordering a DuoX 2 Cromwell/Flashbios chip. Will the M8_v1.6 bios work properly with this chip? This is the only bios that will work with a 1.6 (as the tutorial stated). The only issue I see is making the M8_v1.6 bios the correct size for the 512 banks. Thanks ahead of time for any replies.

i see no reason why the m8_v1.6 bios wouldn't work on the duox chip.. all the chip does is store the bios for the xbox to use.

as for size, only use 2 banks of the bios manager... one bank 256k m8_v1.6, other bank 256k m8_v1.6.. since there are only 2 256k files, it'll combine to make 1 512k bios file. just make sure to leave the other two spots blank

beerchug.gif good luck and keep me posted on how it's going

I need help with the tutorial....

I have a 1.6 xbox and Im installing a 2.6ce chip. I go to download the appropriate BIOS from the appropriate IRC source, and EVTool 1.0.9 won't read it. Where can I find 1.0.8 to try that out? Thanks!

Are you sure you have M8 Plus 1.6-this one is the best(works on 1.6 and 1.6b versions). If you have M8 1.6 you have to get 1.0.8 EVtool. Download M8 Plus 1.6 bios. wink.gif

not true... i know of many people that have had issues running m8plus_16 on 1.6 boxes. i myself had two that ran buggy on that bios.

like i said earlier..
1.6 .... m8_v1.6
1.6b .. m8plus_v1.6
