Tsop Flashing An Already Softmodded Xbox
Posted 21 September 2009 - 03:37 AM
Except for two things. The only volume control I have is within XBMC itself. The sound effects on the flubber startup animation are far too loud, and hurt my ears every time I turn on the car. Also, the orginal dashboard comes up asking for the time every time I start it up. I want to remove the flubber animation entirely, or at least take away the sound. I also want it to stop asking me for the time, and just boot straight to XBMC. It looks like I need to do a bios flash. I also don't want to spend any money, if possible. So it looks like TSOP flashing with EvoX is the way to go.
I'm reading on the forums as much as I can, and it looks like once I flash the bios, my softmod will stop working. Will TSOP flashing brick a softmodded Xbox? Are there other ways to accomplish what I want?

I soldered the points on the motherboard, then FTP'd EvoX and the Xecuter2 5035 bios to EvoX's bios folder
I ran EvoX through the xbox, and flashed the bios
make sure you have a shortcut to your dashboard or your dashboard at C:\evoxdash.xbe, i didn't and I had to use a disc to fix it (auto installer deluxe in my case)

I recommend iND-BIOS 5003. Its worked great with all boxes I've used it on. I used to have a dual-boot softmod and then I did a TSOP flash on top of that. I didn't have to mess with my softmod when I did it. The new hacked bios will scan for your preferred dashboard instead of the default dashboard so it will supersede your softmod entirely. You can delete your softmod files after you flash your bios. I even deleted all my official dashboard files on my C drive and replaced them with XBMC.
yes, tsop flashing will get rid of the clock set loop caused by old/defective softmods
And iND-BIOS is very customizable and even comes with a configuration app that lets you tweak everything about it. You could disable the flubber and intro screens so you wouldn't have to worry about the loud boot up sound because all that would happen is you see a screen saying "LOADING IND-BIOS" then XBMC would boot up right after that with the volume turned to whatever it was last set at.
