To answer Blackhawk's question..
The trashbin is needed so that I can clear old files that u don't want in the backup dir. Since I still don't know how to make Evo-X delete files, I must move them instead.
this great, all i can say is congrats, i am planning on using this method to mod a friend's xbox, a few questions, i cant seem to get the 2bl stuff so i can edit the bfm bioses
aaand are the two xip files the origonal ones that the xbox has when you buy it from the store?
Find a working boot.cfg file to obtain the correct RC4 and EEPROM keys. It is included with a few other packages if u need it, PBL and Morden's for example.
The 2 xip files should be the exact size as I listed. Most likely the originals from your Xbox should work, those files are the same from the first dash upto 4920. I can't promise that every Xbox isn't shipped with 5659, But I haven't seen or heard of any that come with it. Most seem to be 4920 nowadays
I can't seem to get this save onto a memory card... I've added all the "questionable" files to the original zip... and when I try to put it on the mem card, it almost finishes then it says error copying... which is wierd because if I use the one without the files.. it copies fine...
any idea how to fix this? I'm using the AR software, BTW...
The entire package should only be around 5.5 megs when all files are in place. (with 256k BIOS's)
Even if u made 1 meg BIOS files, it should still fit.
Check to make sure your card is empty and try again.
If it still doesn't work, hold out till my beta-testers get the package uploaded to the usual places, which should be soon after they finish testing it.
damn catfish, this is one hell of an installer, i have been trying it out and so far not a single problem, It installed everything just as it said it would I like the option to intall either the font only, audio only, and the ability to switch between them with ease
Ok, I see someone posted the "fonts" over at x-s.
DO NOT USE THEM!!!
They haven't been decompressed and will not work. If u don't want to or can't use the installer, use the ones below .
After installing them to C:\fonts , rename the original fonts with the extension of "bak".
They will run Habibi-signed xbe's in this order...
1st, Retail game OR D:\default.xbe (habibi-signed from the DVD along side of a copy named "catfish.xbe"
4th E:\Phoenix\default.xbe (default install point)
No, I'm not vain... Because retail DVD's would generate error 21, I had to change the DVD filename the exploit looked for. I am rather happy about this as this lets u habibi-sign most xbe's and burn them to CD or DVD and u never have to launch PBL. U can even power-up with one of these disks in the drive and the fonts still kick in.
No matter what the original Anonymous release said, I have NEVER been able to make these fonts boot Evo-X directly. I may be confused and if so, please tell me how u accomplished this. *edit, thanks to shag, I have been able to load Evo-X, but only from CD, I gave up on Evo-X long before I found the bootable CD thing, so never bothered to try it.* **re-edit: Evo-X will load if the MSDashBoard= option is commented out (# in front) or points to a non-existent xbe**
Oh, and I have made a "bootable" CD that loads PBL 1.3 which in turn runs Evo-X from DVD first. I really suggest EVERYONE who uses these fonts to make their own with their own personal backups on it.
I may release a script and dir structure for everyone to make creating one easier. Everyone is welcome to create an ISO for public release using anything I've posted . I just ask that u at least verify it works before releasing it.
**I also ask that none of my work be posted at xbox-scene, but u can post a link to maxconsole if u wish**
