Bios With Auto Clock Set + Vga + Configurable?
Posted 04 October 2012 - 07:13 AM
Is there a Bios like this?
I could manage a 512k size if necessary.

I have a few more questions if you don't mind.
Last time I tried a bios with the a config file I was stuck with "loading config" or something like that on the screen and there wasn't any way to get rid of it. Is this still the case? I just want a black screen.
Does X2 5035 set the clock if I remove the aerogel capacitor that hold the clock time (and often fails). The release notes mention that it will ignore a bad clock but it seems that to have to go set the time manually. The iND has this overtly defined as a feature in their release notes.

Neither bios will actually set the clock to the correct time if that's what you're asking, but yes, X2 5035 does set the time. Both bioses will set the clock to an arbitrary time if it detects that the clock's not already set on bootup. It'll still be up to you to set it to the correct time. If the Xbox is connected to the internet, then you can use XBMC to automatically sync with a time server on bootup.

The ind bios release notes list this:
--Reset to Game/Reset to Dash
I assumed that quick was the no triggers and complete was with the triggers + face buttons. Am I wrong?
Posted 04 October 2012 - 09:36 PM
--Reset to Game/Reset to Dash (Triggers + Black + Back) OR (Triggers + Back + Start)
--Shutdown (Triggers + Back + White)
--Tray Eject (Triggers + Right Thumb + Dpad UP)
--Tray Close (Triggers + Right Thumb + Dpad DOWN)
--Power Cycle (Triggers + Back + X + Black) [hint: hit X before black]
Quick vs complete doesn't have to do with how you trigger the IGR, but rather how the system handles the IGR. From what I understand, quick IGR is faster to reboot the system but doesn't work sometimes, while complete IGR is a bit slower to reboot the system but works 99.9% of the time. Whichever one you choose (you can choose with the config file), you're supposed to still need to pull the triggers, but iND bios will reset if you just press Black + Back or Back + Start even though the release notes state otherwise. I'm not sure how the other commands (like Shutdown) handle the triggers.

Good to know, this is a deal breaker.
Thank You for pointing me to the correct release notes too.
I guess for VGA I can just use a 1.0 TSOP and evox to flash a VGA modified X2 5035 on there and deal with the rest via config file. Hopefully the initializing text will not show up since the 480i stuff doesn't seem to render.
One more random question, can the X2 5035 boot a .xbe on the F partition?
I really appreciate your time AZImmortal. I was expecting crickets chirping as a response.

I think I'm going to try messing around with the M8+ "Evox M8plus VGA Patcher (Based on VGA Patcher v0.8)" and make the visual changes in the EVtool_1.0.9 tool as I'm doing the VGA patching.
Any idea if M8+ does a clock set (arbitrary date but new enough to not cause problems)?
Thanks again for all the help. I feel like I'm ~5 years late for this discussion.
Where is Frosty when you need him?

I rolled a nice customized m8+ that works well except it does not work at 256k when patched for VGA. I guess this means I'm going to have to use 1.0-1.1's for tsop vga and put a 512k chip like a Duox2 on 1.2-1.5's with VGA.
Thanks again for all the help!
