So I'm TSOPing a v1.0 xbox with a switch. Having installed the switch, i flip it to connect the a19 to vcc and run raincoat. I flash a 512k x2.4981.06.bin bios and restart, and everything is okay. But when I disabled the switch, I get the 2 green flash and frag problem -- no original msdash.
What's the point of a multibios if only one bios works and the original bios is hosed? So to remedy, I do what any other xbox modder does -- search xbscene forums. I find a post that describes the 'cat bios.512 bios.512 > bios.1024.bin' linux command to join files, so i first get my 4034 kernel original bios and size it to 512 using xbtool.
Then I use the cat command in raincoat to join my evox 512 and my original bios 512 in that order and then flash the bios with the new 1meg bios. This is done with power being applied to a19 thru the switch.
Next thing I know I'm 2 green flashes then fragging on both switch settings.
Where did I go wrong, and is there anything I can do now? Maybe the 3 wire trick? Help?
BTW hi all first post =p
