for 256k bios to actually still be in devolpment and worked on ! and any of these(in this thread) ideas to come to light !

for the X2 50xx to have an injection system like Ind-bios are, as ind-bios dont have a change to be updated as they lost there source !
and so we we would then have a peoper all in one bios (and not rely on silly ini files on HDD, and that stopid bios loading screens !!

The ability to restart the network without a reboot.
1. reconfig network (static to static/dynamic)
2. want to connect xbox to other xbox
3. switch from network to crossover/pc

oh yeah
forgot to connect network cable before boot up - oops biggrin.gif

Bios that would support a 3TB hard drive? Basically be able to format the F and G partitions with 128 bit clusters? Or maybe make a 3rd partition?

Nobody is developing Xbox 1 BIOSes. I doubt that anyone with access to any BIOS source code even reads these posts any more.

What about customizable skins, personal startup sounds, and core customization of the xbox and how it runs your specified hardware, these days disk space is far from enough to move to running bios from hdd rather than a TSOP or other RAM-like chip. I figured that these BIOS' should already come with support for the hardware once the GUI is loaded since it is built around it with the wrapper of the kernel all on the same partition. So basically what I'm saying is:

A: softmod the x-box just to ftp without screwing things up.
C: FTP to XBOX and copy self extracting BIOS loading app.
D: load up program that incorporates custom bios, intro, and splash screen with wrapper for GUI all in a residentially core-based Kernel through self extracting loading app FTP'd to HDD.

Who needs support for hardware in bios if you run everything like games and apps from a custom Dashboard anywayz? Modchips allow customizing, but not to the level I imagine when I think custom boot screens splash screens or flubber animations.

One other thing, BIOS hacking should be imminent, we should instead look for a way to completely wipe the chip and load our own no matter the circumstance to a custom pre-made bios the way we want it! Take the "grammers" out of programmers and you're left with "pro".

What a fabulously uneducated ramble. If it had been in the Newbie section it might have been excusable, but......

You can already run a BIOS from disk - Google PBL.
The BIOS does come with support for the hardware - what exactly do you think is missing?
If you want different flubber, write your own BIOS.
You can wipe the chip and load your own "custom pre-made BIOS" - that's what TSOP flashing and chip flashing does, and there are loads of BIOSes available, many of which can be customised.

Don't know if this has already been covered but here goes.
I can unpack a evoxm8 bios to an img and view its contents no problem.
Why m8 you may ask, well after disabling a few useless bits (flubber etc) it boots much faster for me than the rest, much faster.
I know i can disable flubber etc with X2 bios but i still have to wait for the damn x2 live config BS whether i switch it on or off blink.gif .
IND has bugs which have been covered on these pages so that rules it out.
Plus m8 doesnt require a boot file on the HDD where as the rest seem to need one for custom configs.
Unless someone can enlighten me to change my thinking !
What i would like to know is it possible to hex edit the m8 bios to recognise 128mb ?
Or does this even matter nowadays as we can patch xbe's with DeLimiter tools.

thanks in advance for any advise or abuse.
