yes,
we definitely want kaid built in a bios!
that should be possible. i just came across this post on the xlink forum: xlink kai forum post.

if i knew how to do it, i wouldn't ask.
but if anyone was able to, i think this would be the absolute killerapp for xbox (in combination with xbmc).
hope someone's got time...

mod on,
spoone

A virtual DVD drive like the one in Nkpatcher so we can 100% HD compatabilty and without the need for patches/fixes. This would make running games off the HD a breeze and file transfer much quicker with just 1 big file to move.

Here's an idea... an xbox without a hard drive just a dvd player and a dvd burner. The bios would control all actions that you need.

i think there should be a special bios just for those who have media center as their dash
like how the crowmwell one that comes on modchips has its own screen and doesnt have the flubber
you could have a xbmc one

You can already do this more or less: get the ind-bios or some other bios that lets you disable the flubber intro (and as many other boot-time checks and so on as possible), and set the executable it will boot to be XBMC. Cromwell boots very fast because it throws the MS kernel away completely and uses its own routines to access the hardware, which don't take as long to initialise (and don't use half the devices on the xbox anyway) - this isn't an option for booting XBMC which requires a full MS(-compatible) kernel to be running, since it's an xbe.

A really useful bios would have auto-xbe patching for 128memory when an xbe is run.
This 128 upgrade is very useful but tedious with all the ftping and patching xbes for it.

The X3 bios has an FTP server in it. It is 1MB (although you can't flash it to a TSOP).

what i want to see is a patch to the retail bios that allows 128mb ram natively, as well as this.

A bios that can accelerate or decelerate the fan speed to mantein the selected cpu temp (as the fan control of xbmc but build in the bios!)

the x3 bios has a fan speed selector, but i don't think that there is anything for adjusting fan speed to maintain temp.
