Team Xecuter asked me to make a thread so you people can post your reports on bugs or other stuff about this new release.

Team Xecuter presents FLASH-X v1.1

----------------------------------------------------------------------------------

With Flash-X you can now select which bank you wish to flash whether its 256k,
512k or 1MB. Gone are the days of a bad flash, now you simply program 256k or
512k at a time.

Installers who like to hot swap and flash their X2's will be pleased to hear that
the machine does not reboot once you have flashed - so you can simply flash /
hotswap / flash / hotswap much faster than when the xbox rebooted each time you
flashed.

You can select bios's stored on C, D, E & F drives (sub dir bios)

Compatible with Xecuter2.x Lite, Xecuter2.x Lite + and Xecuter2.x PRO.


Of course you can also run this from CDR / CDRW / DVDR without having a custom dash
installed and still flash your bios with no problems - again great for installers
in a hurry.


Features Summary
----------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Select which bank to flash your bios too (1, 2, 3, 4, 1+2, 3+4, 1234)

Load bios from c: d: e: f: (sub dir bios)

Fast program / verify routine

No reboot on programme (perfect for mass flashers)

Detect if mod is flash protected

Works on all models (v1.0, v1.1, v1.2, v1.3)

XECUTER2.x Lite and XECUTER2.x Pro Compatible

----------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Changelog

Flash-X v1.1:
- Not working on v1.1 v1.2 or v1.3 - Fixed
- Added error message if mod is flash protected
- Crashed when selecting bios on any drive other than C - fixed
- Faster program / verify routines



Flash-X v1.0:
- First Release

DISCLAIMER

This piece of software will most likely destroy your XBOX if you don't now what you
are doing! We will not be held responsible for any damage or screw ups.

Thanks to #xbins / #xboxhacker and xbox-scene.com for their support

Special thanks to The Joker of Team Avalaunch and also to MomDad.

NOTES
----------------------------------------------------------------------------------
We actually found time to finish this (finally).

Due to a couple of members retiring from the group and real life stuff happening with the rest of us
we're finding it quite difficult to dedicate time to scene stuff and juggling our lives / jobs at the same time.

The X3 mod is being developed by another group so that is not affected, however our scene work (i.e. all the free stuff)
will not be worked on as much as it used to be. We still have some ideas for new bios's and apps, so as and when we get time we will release to you.

Props to Evox, XBMP, Avalaunch, MXM, Xbox-Linux, XboxOpenSource, Team Xodus, Xbox-Scene.com, Xboxhacker.net.

Greets to all the sceners and freinds we've made over the past 18 months - there's way too many to mention but you know who you are.

F**k you to those intent on causing trouble in this fine scene. Suggestion - get a life / job / girl and/or boy


Source Code:

We are currently offering the sources for inclusion in their software to: EvoX, Avalaunch, MXM, XBMP.

You will know who to ask to get the files.

Just downloaded and installed it. Now i try to flash bank 1 with the Xecuter 4977 bios (256kb) but it goes slow as hell (couple of minutes untill it's finished flashing). Also tried to flash bank 2 (with Evox bios) but that was also slow.

After it's done flashing it does work/boot luckely. But version 1.0 flashed real fast (but had problems with bank 4)

Some specs:
- Xbox 1.1
- Xecuter 2.2 Pro modchip
- Dipswitch 4 ON, other 3 are OFF

This is a program which resides on your xbox and allows you to flash your X2Pro without the use of the parrallel cable connected to the computer? Am I correct in thinking this? Or am I just a moron who doesnt understand what this is used for :-p

Both EvoX and FlashX will allow you to flash your X2 Pro without the external adapter. However, only FlashX allows you to flash individual banks and leave the others alone.

I would only use the cable as a last resort as it's certainly less convenient for most people.

I should clarify. Although it's inconvient in most cases, if you experience a situation where all 4 banks have a bad flash (perhaps via EvoX), using the external adapter to flash the chip is MUCH more convenient than disassembling the Xbox to recover it.

BTW, my office's firewall has become really tight these days, and I'm unable to check my home email. I'll get back to you later this afternoon.

Just tried to flash bank 4 and the xbox locks up during erasing sad.gif (same problem as i had with version 1.0)

Already posted the xbox specs in my previous reply.

Really hope this problem can be fixed, because it's a great program!

My v1.1 XBOX locked up on bank 4 again. I thought this problem was going to be resolved with this newer version. I'm using an X2Pro 2.0.

My Xbox v1.1 also locks up during erasing of the chip.
I have a X2.1 Lite. (I tried to erase and program bank 3,4).

It took Team Xecuter a long time to come up with this new release and it still has problems flashing bank 4 on v1.1 and possibly later xbox's.

Don't get me wrong I love this program, and have been using v1.0 to flash bank 1 with great results.

I just think that Team Xecuter has run into some real problems with this bank 4 issue that they have yet to resolve.

If you don't have a X2. pro I would stay away from trying to flash bank 4 sad.gif
