Howdy everybody, I am running evox on my V1.0 with a Matrix and a BIOS I flashed from LPT about 2 months ago. I want to update to this new BIOS so I don't have to worry about game patching. Last time, my last xbox I fried my eeprom by using the wrong tool to flash the BIOS. My understanding is it is very easy to flash a BIOS with evox. Can somebody give me BIOS flashing 101? I want to make sure I don't fuck up this BOX too!
Thanks tongue.gif

FTP the bios you want to your box, to the bios folder on C. then on evox, go to settings --> flash bios. you select the bios you want, and press flash. Make sure you have a 256k bios if you have a matrix or other 256k chip, and a 1 meg bios if you have a 1 meg chip like PCbioxx, X2L or Pro or any other 1 meg chip. the end.

Hmm, don't see this option in settings? Am I blind? Could it somehow be removed from the evox.ini sad.gif

the reason you dont see the option is because you must have used the slayers install CD.

Yup, you guessed it! And is there a work-around?

When i had a matrix I had problem flashing using evox. So I used the matrix bios flash tool. Can't rember if that the real name of it but I have it at home.

I found it worked fine with no problems for me. Also do you have to change the dip switches on the matrix to flash it? Can't rember been a long time since i used one, look in manual to make sure.

The matrix has to be in Mode 4 to be flashed. Both dip switches should be off.
