New Bios On Softmodded Xbox With Evox?
Posted 06 April 2009 - 06:40 AM
My current BIOS: Original 5101 256k
Wanting: and X2 BIOS that allows the disabling of IGR
Is there a way without having to do any soldering?
If there isn't then I guess I could try but I'm afraid of bricking my xbox... again.

There are three ways to get a different BIOS - TSOP flash, install a chip, or use PBL (Phoenix BIOS Loader) to load a new BIOS after the Xbox has booted. PBL doesn't require opening your Xbox.
Why do you want to get rid of IGR?

It's relatively easy to use. Edit the BFM BIOS to launch your preferred dash as you would if you were flashing the BIOS. Put your BIOS in the same folder as the PBL files. Edit boot.cfg to point to your BIOS, e.g.
Then run default.xbe. The screen will flicker, and your dash will load. First time I tried it i wasn't sure it worked, so I edited the BIOS to cycle the LED so I got a visual indication that I was running the BFM BIOS.
You can use it, for example, to load a VGA BFM BIOS if you want to occasionally connect to a VGA monitor. There's a pack of VGA BIOSes available in the usual places as well - look for Frostys_BFM_VGA_BIOS_Pack.rar.
