Before I start this post, I do wish to congratulate Slayer on releasing another version of his installer, as I know that he wasn't exactly planning on making this to begin with. However, I do have some issues to bring up.
I warn people NOT
to do any flashing with this installer, unless you are 100% sure that your BIOS or TSOP is a 256k bank. Why? Because this Auto-Installer has not taken into consideration that BIOS banks and TSOPs are different sizes. So, if you try and use this to flash your BIOS and TSOP, and it isnt a 256k bank, you're screwed. And there's no other options for different sized banks. The only exclusion is ofcourse the X3 BIOS, but this can only go on X3 chips.
Also, it's very strange how there is no softmod support, considering Slayer did write a softmod system at one stage (only written for 007AUF if I remember correctly), and a lot more people are using softmods now. For those people saying it "cluuters up the CD" that couldn't be further from the truth. It takes next to hardly any more space to add softmodding support in an Auto-Installer, and I know this from experience.
I also found a bug in the actual scripting for the installer too:
# The 2 lines below will copy the "installed" version of the "XboxMediaCenter.xml" file to root of C:
# Tries 1st E: then F: drive
copy "E:\Apps\XBMC\XboxMediaCenter.xml" "c:\XboxMediaCenter.xml"
copy "F:\Apps\XBMC\XboxMediaCenter.xml" "c:\XboxMediaCenter.xml"
I didn't think this file was uesd anymore by XBMC 2.0.
Just my two cents...This post has been edited by DJB: Nov 1 2006, 10:53 PM
