|Is it so hard to do a IGR and then select shutdown from the dashboard you are using ?|
Actually, YES! I use the MS$ Dash. I haven't ever seen a "Shutdown" option
I only use other dashes off of disc, when I need them. (My preference)

One feature that i would love to see, is being able to boot an xbe from a memory card. Slap your dash on a card, no worries about xbox live checking the hard drive. Would also be nice for those who have trouble getting evox installed due to crappy dvd drives. They could get a friend with a modded xbox to load evox on a card for them.

Or those who have an X-key device would be one step closer to getting EvoX to boot if none of their CD-RWs and CD-Rs will boot in their Thomson. ::shrug::

|possibly make an original ms bios, so if we accidently select live it doesnt ban, but contains the features of a modified bios, dont no if possible, just suggesting as the forum suggests, btw, i have evox on my box booting from hdd, and my cousin has a box with the same xec2 lit chip, y3t his igr doesnt work, but mine does, he boots nexgen from cd, but i put evox on to test and no working, y does it work on mine and not on his, exact same chip, diff hdds, same bios y|
I dont think it would be possible, or in the interest of the bois makers to make a bios that lets you get on live. As for your IGR questions, i would start a new thread and ask, and keep this one on topic.

Have it so that if you hold down a certain button while powering the unit on it will disable the IGR feature in the bios. (Much better than creating/deleting a file on e: all the time...)

Well, we know it is possible to detect a button press during bootup (with the release of x24978).
|Since the BIOS settings can't be easily changed when the BIOS is on the mod chip, it would be nice if there could be an optional XML file that could be placed on a specific partition|
That is a good idea as well, but I think they can change the bios once it is on the chip, at least that is how it seems now that x24978 has been released with an xbe embedded in it.
That reminds me, why not embed shutdown.xbe so we can shutdown from the controller now without a hardware mod
