Strange Bios Screen / Start Screen - Softmod Not Possible?
Posted 16 December 2008 - 12:48 AM
i have several xbox1 and i softmodded them all with AID.
now i again bought a used one at ebay and i cannot get it to load the hacked gamesave of splinter cell, it just reboots.
when rebooting i noticed that it has a somewhat modded bios screen:
anyone knows what i could do? all i want is to obtain the firmimg.bin somehow so i can fit in a silent new 2.5" hdd + mod the fan..
i bought a xecuter a month ago but unfortunately it seems to be defective.....so the modchip is currently no option.
anyone has an idea what i could try?

Either way, it's already modded, so you don't need to softmod it (and as you've found a softmod won't run anyway!). Work out what version Xbox it is, run BIOS checker to see which BIOS it has, flash a newer BIOS if necessary, then just drop in your new disc and build it with Slayers or AID.

i was just impatient.
aid booted after about 30 seconds....never had a chipped box before
if i backup the eeprom.bin from within aid or config magic - does it backup the one from within flash or is it possible that it backups it from the chip?
because i just backuped it with both (although i probably will never need it) and i am now downloading aid 4.40
thank you for your fast reply!
xbox v1.0 btw..

i also noticed that when i start the box by pressing both reset + power button then there is the normal xbox start screen......it bails out to service screen because the disk is not locked currently (which i will change in the next minutes).
what does this mean? which bios do i run? how can i find out? bios checker did not tell me much i guess.
btw: i already replaced the hdd with the 2.5" replacement (by building it with xboxhdm like i was used to do it on the 2 other softmodded xboxes).....and the box only boots to discs, it does not boot to any dash. i will lock the hdd and check if it boots to any dash then.

You don't need to use xboxhdm to build the disk - just put Slayers in the DVD, reboot, and use Slayers to build the disk.
The BIOS is probably one that has been customised, so BIOS Checker doesn't have a checksum for it and therefore can't recognise it.
Once you have the disk properly rebuilt and booting normally you can then use Evox to flash the Xbox with a recognised BIOS. As you've got a 1 MB chip (M29F080A) you can use any BIOS. I'd suggest X2.5035, but do some reading and make up your own mind.
