i went through about 20 pages of topics, but nothing really answered the specific questions i have (at least i couldnt find them)
the box: v1.4 with softmod...but picked up an xbit
the problem: not reading dashboard
the bios: x2 5035
the bios questions (since i cant find anywhere that lists the all the features):
1: x2configmaker has an config file that came with program...is that just a sample (defaults) for the program, or do i have to have a config file for the bios? (thought everything it needed was in the bios code)...cont'd in question2b.
2a: the xbit has its own flash software via usb...but reading up on the x2, it says it wants to look for a bios.bin file off the dvd..is that specifically for the x2 chip or is it for the bios itself? (thinking its for the chip)
2b: if the bin file flashes to the chip and it needs the config file from q.1...do i need to flash that to the chip as well, or does it have to go on the disc?
3a: does it have a built in ftp so i can access the hdd and replace dashboard with backup from pc?
3b: looking at the x2ool and x2config, it searches for the 5 different dashes...does the orginal bios only search for one or will it look for any xbe file in that drive? (i have/had both evox and avalaunch on the drive and i know the path of the backup m$ as well), so i possibly may not have to ftp a dashboard over.
4: i read the info about setting for large hdd, but which file to needs to be config'd for >137GB drives (future upgrade) bin or config file?(thinking its the bin file)
5: can i do the larger lba setting with a smaller drive or do i HAVE to have the larger drive? meaning, can i just do the one flash and not have reflash when i get the bigger drive. ie...currently have OEM hdd, can i flash for a 137GB+ now?
i think those are my main questions i need answered before i go any farther.
