Yeah, he is talking about UnleashX because you can make video skins for it. I have actually done it, and it works quite well. As for the video playing on bootup, I don't think so. The animation that plays is part of the bios, and to my knowledge, UnleashX has made no bios.

as for editing the bios animation (flubber) itself with a TSOP flash, it is possible but you have to be careful or you might end up with a brick. your best best would be to use IND-BIOS or an X2 bios with X2 config live since those bioses have their settings stored in a config file on the HD. if you need to change a setting, you don't have to edit the bios and reflash. you just ftp and edit the file to your liking. These bioses do take a few more seconds to boot since they need to initialise the hardware/HD first but you get used to it.

the alternative is to modify the bios of your choice in XBtool, EVtool and/or kernel basher and flash it. if you want to change the animation, boot order or anything else, you need to edit the bios again and reflash.

im flashing winbond tsop on a 1.4 or 1.5

im planing on using x2_4981 because nobody has answers to why the newer
x2_4982 and x2_4983 are encrypted????

i'v read ur post
""""""""
4983 is not supported by xbtool since it is encrypted. you will need to unpack the bios with xbtool (you can still do this) and edit the kernel (xboxkrnl.img) with a hex editor.
""""""""
whats the difference's between 4983 and older 4981?

i'v read about "an X2 bios with X2 config live" this but does x2_4981 have a config? no?



theres also a blue version of x2_4981 on xbins which wont open with xbtool sad.gif
i'd be happy with this

4982 and 4983 had new features that team xecuter didn't want other people getting their hands on, so they encrypted the bios.

you can do anything with a TSOP flash that you can do with a gen3 modchip....but i believe you need an X3 bios to actually change the bootup animation to something else.

lordvader's way (delete the flubber animation from startup and make a splash screen loading video via unleashx) would be a decent replacement.

i'm not sure why the blue bios won't work with xbtool....but find another blue bios, open it, save the color configuration, download a regular run of the mill 4981, open it with xbtool, load the color config, and then save it.

i'v had no luck finding another blue bios, so im "thinking" of trying kernalbasher to change the flubber color's from the original x2_4981 (i think it has been done?)

what features did xecuter not want people to have? i cant see the change log with any newer bios files after x2_4981.

thanx

Experimental X3 bios code.

They are the same (in features, not code)

Get a fresh copy of 4981_fixed.rar from xbins, then edit it.

1: its faded because the dvd check is turned off on all x2 bios, there is no need and no point to tunring it back on

2: HD rpm and size really has no bearing on heat produced, i use 24% and it works fine, if you notice your temp getting too hot (155 is about where you should be getting worried) then you might want to turn it up

3: the splash logo is the MS logo that comes in under the X, its also the X2 logo that replaces it in x2 bioses

4: just set whatever xbe you want it to boot in xbtool, thats what i always do

5: if there eeprom is corrupt, it also has development capabilities i believe

6: im not sure kernel basher can open x2 bios, i thought it was just for iNd bioses, but then ive never used either so i woudlnt know
