Great tutorial! Going to use it today...but
I have a question on the order of which I do things...
I have Xecuter 2.6CE and a 250gb Hard drive that just came in.
Do I leave my stock xbox hdd and flash my Evox M8 bios, or put in the new 250gb and flash with LBA48 support? I'm thinking I leave the stock Xbox hdd in, flash, and then afterwards put in my 250gb, make an EVOX boot cd, FTP, and format the hard drive from there?
Does the EVOX M8 bios already have LBA48 support in it?
Also, I'm thinking of doing the HTTP method, but if the network cable slips out...is the Xbox a goner?
Thank you very much for your time.
i've flashed with a new hdd before.. just use slayers to format and prep the new hdd.
and your network cable has a clip on it to prevent it from "just slipping out"

IS THE M8PLUS 256 BIN FILE THE EVOX DASHBOARD THAT I CAN FLASH TO MY XECUTER CHIP
ALSO, I HAVE A V1.4 XBOX W/ XECUTER2.6CE...I HTTP FLASHED
Metoo-M8plus_16-06 TO ONE OF THE TWO BANKS AND NOW IT DOES THAT ORANGE/GREEN FLASHING AND NOTHING BOOTS ON THE BANK. THE OTHER BANK BOOTS FLAWLESSLY WITH THE FLASHBIOS V3.0.3 AND I WANT TO GET THE EVOX DASHBOARD. DO I NEED TO INSTALL IT TO THE BANK THAT STILL BOOTS OR DID I HAVE TO DO IT ONE THE OTHER BANK AND CAN I GET IT TO BOOT AGAIN?
first off, turn off your caps lock.. nothing more annoying that having to read a blur of big letters. there's no need to yell
now on to your problems..
1. evox dash is a program, not a bios. they are completely seperate. you load the bios onto the chip, which in turn allows you to put the program onto the hdd.
2. m8plus_16 is only for 1.6/1.6b boxes.. if you had actually read thru the tut you would have caught that. also you should really use a clean version, not a modified one. save custom bioses for when you are more experienced and know how to fix any mistakes you might make.
3. you really need to spend some more time in the newbie chat forum reading the pinned topics.. anyone that doesn't know the difference between dashes and bios' doesn't need to be attempting any mods. i don't mean that in a shitty way, i'd just rather have you get a better idea of what you're doing instead of possibly screwing up something major by just diving headfirst into it.
