1. . Looks like your Xbox has a chip or a TSOP flash, but your friend (who "softmodded" it) might have installed PBL to load Evox D6 - but he might just have installed a hacked dash for you. The only way to find out for sure is to open it and have a look, but you'll be doing that anyway.... see later. Use the tables linked from this page
to identify the chip - there are pictures at the bottom of each column of the tables.
2. It sounds as though it already is. If it isn't then you need to know which chip it is to work out how to enable it.
3. Yes, but you need to know which chip you have (or how the Xbox is modded) to work out the best upgrade.
4. No, it's not a software fault. You need to open the Xbox.
5. Yes, as a general purpose dash UnleashX is better IMHO, but you still need Evox for flashing (and taking eeprom backups).
In the meantime, load and run BIOSchecker, and report what it says. The chip type might help narrow down what's going on.
Sorry for the absence i've been quite busy latly, I opened it up and found a modchip (well I think), but it didn't look like any of the the one's I found there... I took some pics incase someone would be able to identify it:
And I couldn't find a recent version of BIOSchecker anywhere, maybe you could point me in the right direction.

A quick check to see whether you have an active hardmod (chip or TSOP flash) is to compare your startup sequence to this
. If it differs in any way, then you're running a hardmod. If it doesn't, then you might just have an inactive modchip, but I'd consider that unlikely...
Another easy check is to take a look at the underside of the system, if the stickers aren't busted (they cover the screws) then likely it was never opened (hence never chipped).http://forums.llamma.com/viewtopic.php?t=12329
Every dash has it's pros and cons. For general use I'd recommend XBMC over anything else.
okay all though I did find what i think is a modchip, I still had that exact same startup animation. This means that it's unactivated? And if so, is it possible to activate it?This post has been edited by nonameatall: May 26 2009, 05:35 PM
