I have a xenium os 1.1 and m7 bios.
A weird thing happened today. I got on to play cvs2 and all I had plugged in was my ps2 controller connected to a dreambox converter(my first time using it), and the xenium os screen pops up, then my xbox reboot, then ms dash pops up. I thought this means that the original bios was loaded because the light is green. But alas, it wasn't. Because I tried logging on to live and by luck have it, I get a message, something about cannot connect to xbox live please try later or something. (when you first get this message in the game, are you banned????). and then it goes to the ms dash and ran the trouble shoot. Thats when I know I'm banned for sure because it says "unable to connect because your hardware might have been modified."
Did this occur because the way the xenium boots up with a dreambox converter in it? I thought the os 1.1 fixed it so the os will load even if you dont have a controller plugged in.
And most inportantly, is the epprom method the only way to get back on? Why can I just modify the eppron with a program?
thanks, and sorry if my post is kinda rambling. I feel very bad that I got banned
EDIT: I think the problem is when you turn on you xbox (xenium modded) w/o a controller plugged in, or with a converter(xenium doesn't recognize it), it'll reset and boot the msdash with the hacked bios. Illusion, damn! This post has been edited by Mentok: Jun 19 2004, 07:52 PM
