What you need to do now is install a dashboard, such as EvolutionX (Evox), UnleashX, or Avalaunch, on your Xbox. Each dashboard has it's own ups and downs, but most people seem to start out with Evox, even though it's a old dashboard.
An auto-installer disc, such as Slayer's Evox Auto-Installer
, make installing Evox and other applications easy. All you do is download the disc image, and burn it to a CD/DVD that your Xbox can read.
For further instructions, look over the manual included with the installer, or at the Slayer website.
I have tried to install a dashboard on my Xbox using the USB mini cable that comes with the X-BIT; I use the program X-BIT v1.0 (I know I should use v1.5 but it won't connect when I try to use it, all the connect button does is depress and thats all, no matter how many times I press it) it says error alot but it does connect to the mod chip. I have installed Evox and X2 each once in the 6 section (Bios 5 256K) of the flash memory and then I disconnect and I restart my Xbox. But nothing changes, the M$ logo and the normal dashboard comes up. I also have burned Slayers Evox Auto-Installer's ISO to a DVD but I put it into the Xbox and it says its not a game, DVD, or CD and it says to remove it; no matter how many times I try (20+) it does the same thing.
My real question is how do I know the X-BIT solderless mod chip I put in is even installed correctly? At first after I put it on my motherboard my Xbox wouldn't even start up (it would restart three times and the green light on the front of the system flashed red and green). Now after I removed the solder from the LPC port with a thumb tac and the mod chip is sitting more into the holes and the Xbox actually will start up normally. But how do I know the mod is even working correctly? Is something supposed to show up on the main menu, or is the menu not supposed to show up at all? What did I do wrong? Or what do I have to do?
