I've been tinkering again.
I needed to strip out an X2.6 from a Vs 1.2 Xbox so i opted to set it up with a TSOP flash after removing the chip.
I have managed to flash the TSOP with the Slayers 2.7 disk. I completed the following process:
1. I built a clean HDD with the latest MS Dash version.
2. Completed the 007 Splinter Cell softmod.
3. Installed EvoX as a dash.
4. Flashed the TSOP using Slayers 2.7 - Option: 7b2) Flash Mod or v1.0-1.5 TSOP w/ EvoX-M8 *FC* F
I then re booted the Xbox minus the Slayers disk. It boots to a Blue Xbox logo with the 'EvoX' notifier in the top left hand corner. It also shows 'Slayers 2.7' below the xbox logo. This tells me that the M8 BIOS TSOP flash was a success.
It does not boot to any dashboard at this point, it simply hangs at the xbox logo.
I then re booted to the Slayers disk and installed XBMC as a dash followed by a re boot. It still hung at the Xbox logo.
Next i FTP'd into the Xbox vie the Slayers disk to check that the xboxdash.xbe and evoxdash.xbe were present on the C:\. Both files are present.
I then installed the 'Using the Team XBMC Shortcut.xbe (Recommended)' as shown here: http://xbmc.org/wiki/?title=XBMC_for_Xbox I amended the .CFG file to redirect it to my XBMC 'Default.xbe' but this does not work either.
Im now stuck. The dash .XBE files are there so why does the M8 BIOS not boot to the .XBE files?
Thanks in advance guys.
