you bought a modchip without doing any research what-so-ever? all of the questions you just asked can be found in the tutorial section on the front page. also, the
button can help you.
Jul 15 2005, 01:05 AM
check out the makers website, teamxecuter.com they have some good tutorials, you can get the bios from xbins. Yea you should have read up more, i knew every single step before i bought my chip and saved all the info to my computer.
Jul 15 2005, 01:29 AM
i never bought it yet, i am doing my reserch for asking help. i dont know what im looking at when im doing this..idk if what im looking at is the right thing thats why i asked.
Jul 15 2005, 01:32 AM
oh, and whats xbins?

Look up News Bin Pro on Google. Also, you must have an account. Time Warner usually gives one for free with Road Runner. If you have RR, your server name will be news-server.triad.rr.com (sub out triad for where you live, like NYC, etc.) (You might not need to add .com) You wont need a login name or password

is this how to install the solderless modchip?http://www.teamxecuter.com/xapter/
and this says howto flash a new bios right into the harddrive?http://www.teamxecuter.com/flashbios/
my question is this..if those r what i need....the only other thing i would have to buy would be a harddrive drive?
140 160 180 200, whatever i buy, all i gotta do is unplug the xbox harddrive, throw this one in and im done? dont i have to unlock it too?
Jul 15 2005, 01:42 AM
which do i download and burn to dvd?
do i have to make it a special filename....then again, i do have a cross over cable, can i use that? and if so..how?
im sry im oputting u guys threw hell.
Jul 15 2005, 01:55 AM
dont ask what xbins is...if u cant figure it out by yourself like the rest of us *cough*google*cough* then you dont deserve to use it
Jul 15 2005, 02:42 AM
TUTORIALS. you need to read. stop asking us when all the answers are right in front of you and ur just to lazy to go read them. we are here to help when you have read and followed tutorials/faqs and still dont get it or something isnt working. heres a good places to start:http://www.xboxhackz.com/tutorials/beginne...detoxboxmod.htm
Jul 15 2005, 02:55 AM
wow. thanks so much. what i was stuck on is...how the heck do i hack a new bios..i didnt know the bios is on the modchip!!! hahaha..
now prolly another dumb question i have?
with this new 'bios' or 'modchip' installed, does it come with all the software i need to burn dvds and backup my games so to speak.
Jul 15 2005, 02:57 AM
thats what dashboards and apps are for. the bios just lets you run those programs. after you install the modchip you will problably have to flash a new bios onto the chip adn then you can put dashboards adn apps, etc. on ur hard drive. theres lost of info in the tutorials section of xbox-scene.
Jul 15 2005, 03:12 AM
i have my xbox hooked up to my router right now...how do i get into it to copy the drives over yto my computer?
is this what u were talking about? if so, which is the best?
Jul 15 2005, 03:15 AM
i prefer xbox media center but evox (evolution x) is a good one to start with. is your modchip installed yet? if so the first thing you should do is reflash the bios
Jul 15 2005, 03:23 AM
install modchip, flash new bios, then install HDD?
but again, i would like to ftp my bios over, im getting the solderless CE 2.6 and i believe it comes with the flaskbios 3.06, if not, i can download it at teamxuceter.com.
if i used my crossover cable from xbox directly into pc how does that work?..any software i need to download?
even if i have a router... i have cat5 running to my xbox right now, does the crossover need to go from the xbox to my linksys?
Jul 15 2005, 03:25 AM
Jul 15 2005, 03:33 AM
ok your getting there. heres how it works. you need to ftp(sorta) you bios over. therell be instructions on the website which it seems u already found. u can use a crossover cable to directly connect your pc to your xbox or use two straight thru cables and a switch/hub/router to connect. once u get new bios flashed, you then want to make an evox boot disk. Basically that means ur putting a dashboard on a cd. you want to do this because evox lets you ftp into you xbox. You use an ftp program (flashfxp, smartftp, cuteftp, etc.) to connect to your xbox and transfer files. like i said theres TONS of tutorials on ftping and on making an evox boot disk. u should problably read the ftp one first, so you know what ips to assign. after you can ftp and stuff you wanna back up ur hdd, then u wanna find a program to format a new hdd, or IF its supported (i know x3 does) you can have your bios format ur new hdd. either way you need all the files from your stock hdd to put onto ur new hdd. once again theres TONS and TONS of knowledge out there. just search for it.
things you will need for getting files (xbins):
ftp program(listed above)
things you will need to ftp to xbox:
ftp programs(listed above)
straight thru>hub>straight thru OR crossover
things you will need to make a boot disk
compatible media (cd-r/rw or dvd-r/rw)
an xiso making program
good luck. i know it sounds like a lot but if u take it once step at a time its not that bad
edit: heres an explanation of xbins: http://www.xbox-scene.com/articles/xbins.php

i found this, but a few questions about it.
...someone posted this:
"You don't want to delete flashbios especially if you have no programmer.
I think you should have use Flashbios 3.0.1 for a 1.4 ver Xbox
Anyway check that all is working with backup games before proceeding just in case. Get a copy of Slayers ver2.6
Extract and burn the ISO.
Place slayers ISO in your Xbox drive and reboot system.
Slayers will spin up so just follow the onscreen instructions and all will be insalled automatically.
You will then have Evox, Ava, and XBMC dashboards on your HD plus many other utils.
A very good package and simple to use!"is slayers the way to go?
also, in that thread people are talking about banks? what are banks? and r they important? i see people r installing numorius bios'es... why? dont i just need the 3.01? they are talking about a 512 and other stuff.
Jul 15 2005, 03:51 AM
when looking for a harddrive..what interface do i look for? ata 100? or ata 133? or doesnt it matter?
Jul 15 2005, 03:55 AM
i dont personally have expierence with slayers but it seems to be teh easiest way to go. slayers is basically everything i explained in a nutshell. it has some dashboards on and (i think) automatically puts the dashboards on ur hdd. u can get slayers at xbins. as for the banks, the modchip comes with x amount of memory. this memory is usually split up into different sizes, like 256K, 512K, or 1mb( which would be 1024k). these different sizes make up the banks. the bios file you download will be one of those sizes, im guessing 512k. the bios that comes with it will also be one of those sizes, however the bios will not fill up all teh memory. you want to keep teh flashbios because it makes it easier to reflash your bios in the future if you ever need to. i kept my flash bios in its original bank and put my new bios in a different bank. when xecuter comes out with a new build all i have to do is switch banks and i can use the flash bios to update/flash my other bios. thats why you would want to switch banks. as far as switching banks goes on teh x2 i dont know, but the x3 has an external switch. you can probalbly find something at xecuters website
as for slayers, you would want to burn the xiso using nero, put it in ur xbox, follow the instructions, and then ftp with one of the programs.
edit: ata 133 is faster but you can only take advantage of the added speed if you put in a new ide cable? just make sure you dont get sata or serial ata
Jul 15 2005, 04:10 AM
ok so the guy said to
"Flash a 512k X2 4983 Bios if you have a v1.0 - v1.5"
so i need to look for a 512k x2 4983 Bios and put that into a bank?
he says bank 1 has the flashbios 301...and bank 2 has 303
so does x24983 go into bank 3? or do i overright bank 1 or 2?
another thing i plugged in my crossover cable from xbox to pc..am i forgetting something....a ftp program right?
Jul 15 2005, 04:14 AM
if bank 3 is a 512k bank. you could just overwrite bank 1 or 2. yes you need a ftp program but you cant ftp ur xbox until u have a new dashboard or have flashed a new bios onto ur chip(if the bios has built in ftp, if not use a dashboard)
Jul 15 2005, 02:09 PM
i would download that new bios put it on a dvd-r pop it in my xbox and it should install automatticly?
Jul 15 2005, 05:45 PM
run the bios that comes on the chip. it will prompt for the dvd if thats the way you want to go. i think its easier to use a crossover cable all you need is internet explorer.
Jul 15 2005, 11:23 PM
see this is where im confused. do i have to install the new bios?
whats flashbios 3.01?
is that the new bios?
or is that x2 5683 whatever the bios i have to download and cross over?
u got me confused now....
Jul 18 2005, 10:45 PM
after re reading what u wrote i think i undertand it now..
the flash bios is basicalle what u sed to install the new bios. when i run that i can chooce the new bios i download. ... am i right or wrong?
Jul 19 2005, 08:00 PM
