I've noticed a many questions recently regarding FlashBIOS on the Xecuter 2.2's or 2.3's, most of them being along the same lines. In an effort to resolve some of the issues, I've created a tutorial for flashing your brand new Xecuter 2.2 pr 2.3 (preflashed with FlashBIOS which is based on the Cromwell Linux BIOS) and installing EvolutionX. Hopefully this will answer many of the new questions we are receiving in the forums. biggrin.gif

FlashBIOS in a sense oliminated the need for ozflash. It's so easy to just use FlashBIOS instead.

Read the tutorial for the steps in creating the bios disc.

- Console shuts down after the flash, yes.
- You don't have to install evox yet, but you'll only have the standard MSdashboard on there.
- The mod allows to play unsigned code so as long as your dvd drive can read the backed up cd then yes, you should be able to play the backed up games.

make sure the file is called bios.bin and that there is a 50mb dummy file called abc.dat on the cd. i am assuming it recognizes the cd and just cant find the bios by your post.

you need to download the original 256k bios off of xbins. that could be the source of your problem since you may have a modified bios.

it does find the bios file, it says

CD-ROM Label: New
Found Bios Update: /BIOS.BIN (1024K)
Unknown flash! Halting

i put two files on that cd, the bios.bin and abc.dat(it was a 78mb.zip)

i have a samsung dvd
i have also tried with 3 dif types of media, a verbatim and memorex cd-r and a tdk cd-rw
i also tried disk at once and track at once @4x(slowest option)
