i just had this idea and was about to post it:

many peopl change their LED color with avalaunch or other programs, but when you reset the xbox it changes back. So maybe a feature could be implemented in the bios to staart up with a certain color. Like red, green, orane, or off. thx for listening.

Yea...Avalaunch and those other programs only let the color change when the program is running, but once u reset..its back to that boring ol' green! I heard that X-Ecuter2 was making a BIOS like taht...im not 100% sure tho!

It's really easy to switch the wires in the connector that goes to the mb. Mine are now always red.

I saw your post about changing the xbox LED colors and have done the necessary bios hacks.

Coming as soon as tonight or tomorrow these will be included in the newest build of XBTool.

Your choices, as of now, will be to change the CONSTANT xbox LED color to RED, ORANGE, or NONE(meaning the LED isn't lit at all).

Hope you all enjoy wink.gif

Well, SantMat has been hacking away at the kernel and it just so happens he sent me info last night on how to patch for LED colors which I just finished implementing in XBtool 0.8.50. It is NOT fully tested, so heed the warnings. (You can also turn the LED off, if you like.)

[edit]

I just wanted to add that SantMat has put in a lot of work digging in the kernel and deserves kudos for making XBtool a lot better than it would have been without him.

Great feature! Good job.

Back in the earlier versions of this tool you had radio buttons for each of the more common colors like red, blue, purple, etc. How about putting that back in?

Those color radio buttons were when I was using a combination of Superfr0's color patches. That was before I figured out the format of the colors and so you were locked into using a small number of possibilities. Basically it just set the RGB values to full on or full off, which you can do with the color pickers now. I know it's a bit more tedious, but you could make presets for futures use.

I must say also that xbtool is a very good piece of work. And the fact delay between a new X2 bios version and its xbtool integration never exceeds a day is very nice too.

Great job.

Now that the congratulations are done, I have a request.
With the use of xbtool I modify the name of the binary file executed on the dvd drive at startup.
I change it from default.xbe to something else (bootrap.xbe). I use the decoding function, then with a binary editor, I search for the string and modify it, then I encode again the bios.

The purpose is to always boot on the hardrive, even when a dvd is present in the drive. I can still go on the cd with evox if I want afterward.
If my xbox is broken, I can boot with a special cd that has a startup file names bootrap.xbe in order to repair it.

I do this manually with every bios version. It could be very nice to integrate this hack directly within xbtool.
