Ok, we bought my grandpa one of those christmas xbox bundles that comes with top spin and ncaa. Well, now i just bought a x2.6 modchip for him and i'm going to install it for him, i have no problem with installing it, that is easy. but i'm worried about the bios.
From what i have read i have to download the M8+ bios, whats the difference from this bios and the old M8 bios?
Why do i have to make a 1meg bios image using X2 bios editor and put the flashbios in banks 1&2 and M8+ in banks 3&4? Ive read because the M8(+?) bios only works in the last banks. is this still true?
Also, i have not opened up his xbox (he lives 3 hours away, i'm going to do it when i go visit them for christmas) so i dont know if it is a 1.6 or 1.6b. And i ordered the chip from system-mod and i dont know what flashbios version it comes with. Is it true that the 3.03 flashbios only works with 1.0-1.5 and 1.6b still?
If that it is true, then could i put the 2.6 in my 1.1 xbox, and flash the first 2 banks with 3.01 and the last two banks with 3.03 just so that i can load up the proper bios according to which version 1.6 xbox he has?
Sorry for all the questions but i couldnt find all my answers with the search button, thanks for the help anyone gives.
