All These Bios'es Are Confusing Me!
Posted 21 May 2003 - 09:34 AM
First things first though, I am getting way too much info about BIOS'es! Also the relation between a dashboard and a BIOS confuses me sometimes.
For instance, what is the default BIOS? I know that the M$ dashboard is the default dashboard and that EvoX is a replacement dashboard. But then there's the Linux Cromwell BIOS that comes with my Xecuter 2 Lite, there's also an EvoX BIOS and also an Xecuter 2 BIOS right? I don't know which one to go with!
If I understand correctly the Linux Cromwell BIOS is pre-flashed so you can boot Linux from CD or HD. But which one is right for me? I want to install EvoX, should I then go for the latest EvoX BIOS I can find?

The relationship is that any newer BIOS will allow you to run unsigned code.
The difference between X2/EvoX BIOX and the cromwell is that cromwell is legal, but to be honest I think even the mandrake linux website doesnt recommend running linux on your xbox lol.
The EvoX.D.6 BIOS seems to be pretty basic, I liked it, but it boots "xboxdash.xbe"-meaning you have to rename both M$ xboxdash AND your evoxdash, so every time you want to play Live you have to rename-kinda annoying, I stumbled across my EvoX2.5.colormod.err.noani.ybox BIOS not too long ago, those are cool, they change the color of the X, remove the flubber animation, give you details when you get an error, and loads yboxdash.xbe, so you can leave M$'s named xboxdash.xbe.
In my opinoin BIOS preferance is just a matter of personal customization.
