I have just recenty decided to chip my xbox and after much reading of the tutorials and forum posts of xbox scene i decided to go with the X3CE chip.
I installed the chip as per the guide and made a cd with the X3 3294 Bios and flashed the bios as per the guide and i think that it all went in fine? as it went throgh ok and when i re booted i got a new screen of stuff come up with new options.
At this point i tried making a boot disk for EvolutionX i made a folder called EvoX added the default.xbe, the ini, fluff file and skins folder to it i then made these file into and iso With Craxation and burned with nero ( all as per the guide.
Here is where my problems begin. none of the disks i have made have managed to do anything when when put in the xbox and rebooted, it just always goes to the screen i get after i flashed the bio's.
I have tried several disk types dvd+r, cd-r (few diffent types), cd-rw (tdk) - (could not even get the iso to burn on the cd-rw) ( yes i know some of these are no no's but i was clutching at straws and thought may as well try um)
The second problem i have is that now that i have flashed the bio's i can no longer play any original disks if i try and boot with the chip off i get a contact customer services message in several languages.
I am at the moment at a loss on what to do next i would really apreciated it if some one could look at this and let me know if i have gone wrong at any point on what i have done so far, if so what i should have done and how to fix, what to do from this point on and any help to get my xbox fully chiped and working.
I did think about getting one of the soft mod game and memory card kits to get a dashboard on but thought with not being able to play original games at present this would not work am i correct in thinking this?
Any Help anyone can give would be much apreciated.
Noob = yes, Learning all i can = yes, hoping to be all clued up on xbox mods = yes
