Trying To Help A Mate
Posted 11 August 2003 - 08:41 AM
A friend had his xbox modded at a store and it is behaving badly.They say he didn't pay for the evox install and are demanding more cash to continue. It has the ALX2+ chip
When he turns it on with the power switch it loads the comwell linux bios. When he holds down the power and eject (P&E) it boots to the std ms dash. C: has an audio folder and in the root about 20+ files with xit extension.
I put evox etc on c: and booted using P&E and up pops evox. Using the power switch it still jumps to the blue cromwell bios screen.
I do not know much about the early stages of modding but have plodded around after making all the changes I need to.
What do I need to do to get this xbox booting to evox via the power switch.
Thanks in advance

I have even tried recreating the iso with the same result. I have success with ISO's prev.

You will have to add a few lines in evox.ini (cant remember what) that enables the flashing.

Flash=0x04B4,"ALX2+ R2 FLASH",0x40000
and rebooted and The cromwell bios still boots off the power switch.
If I use the protected area (Orange) it boots to evox without a hitch. What has this retailer done to disable the boot to evox when using the user programable area?
I have tried using the http://www.xbox-scen...x2-ozxflash.php tutorial but Cromwell will not read the CDRW.
"Just Flash the bios in evox" for me to do this I need to be able to boot of a cdrw to execute the command. Cromwell will not boot off a cd as the user programable area is not reading XBE's.
I can only boot off a CD when I use the protected BIOS. When I try to flash with the file in the c:/bios file and tem "Flash BIOS",@1 in the evox.ini I get a write protect error message. (Expected since it is write protected)
Are there any ideas before I hand it back to my mate and tell him to pay up?

I have had the same chip in my box, and did just that.
Put the bios you want to flash in the c:bios folder so that evox can find it, and then just flash the bios.

Did you flash a cromwell bios in there?
What bios are you trying to flash?
What size bios are trying to flash? ALX2+ has 256kb banks
Im confused, couse i flashed cromwell and xecuter bioses in my chip just like i explained.
The ALX2+ is kinda funny, couse when you are in the protected bios it will flash the unprotected bios.
edit: Fuond an error in the lines in evox you posted: put spaces betveen FLASH and = and 0x04A4 like this FLASH = 0x04A4
