>> 4983 Bug Fix We were testing some X3 code in the 4982 bios and there was a part of our loader sequence that was not fully compatible with the X2 Lite mod. Therefore 4982 only worked on X2 Lite if you used it as a 1MB bios or on the second 512k bank of the mod. Users could not load XBE's from their hacked dashboard due to this bug - it's now been fixed. If you had this problem simply boot from disc with FlashX or EvoX to flash again - it WILL boot the disc even tho XBE from dash crashed beforehand. Thanks to those who informed us of this error. >> Release Information Hello again from Team Xecuter. Here is yet another release of the scene's most advanced feature packed Xbox Bios. I know we said there would be no more so I guess we should apologize for that statement, no doubt the usual haters will jump on it no doubt :) There was a few bugs with 4980 that simply shouldn't have been missed. It was hacked a little by members of the scene and 4981 became an "unofficial" release. Looking at this we decided to build an official release with a few adjustments and fixes. First of all we seem to have many support issues with users of our bios that are in fact using one that has been edited or not the actual release that was tested working, so we have now included a new Bios checker that will confirm that the bios you have downloaded or acquired is indeed the correct and official version. It's a simple dos app that can be run from the command line. This new release checker is included with this release.

Other features we have added due to requests from reading posts on our forums, xbox-scene.com and worldxbox.co.uk - Added ability to disable the No Reset On Eject Hack Reason: Most Requested Feature - Added ability to disable the XBL Live Check Hack Reason: Some people report issues when they have an older dash version - Added ability to disable the Clock Error Check Hack Reason: Some people report issues with clock constantly resetting All of these features including the "Disable IGR Hack" can now be enabled / disabled by a simple XBE app which is included with this release. If anyone wishes to use the XBL Check Feature we STRONGLY recommend you update to the latest dash version (Live 2.0 5659.03) as the patch does not block a game accessing the live service to upgrade if you have an older version. Games like Sega GTO have the file Dashupdate.xbe You can either disconnect your mod and update or rip the file from the game and run manually after FTP'ing to your box.

Enjoy yet another fine X2 Bios release.

>> Notes

You should be made aware of some issues that we discovered and has probably had some of you tearing your hair out. If you have games like GTA, GTA Vice City and Fifa 2004 etc and they are crashing during the game then you will find they operate and AUTOSAVE check which uses your system clock. Now if your system clock is corrupt then it will crash a number of titles which use AUTOSAVE. One clock we found corrupt had a date/time setting of 15/11/8097. The second the clock was fixed in the MS Dash all the

games that crashed worked just fine with no problems whatsoever. You should also be aware that some apps especially FlashX v1.2 are also crashing - this is down to the EVOX IGR. You should disable all EVOX IGR and this will get things moving nicely. If you have any questions / bug reports / success reports please post in this thread: http://www.teamxecuter.com/modules.php?name=Forums&file=viewtopic&t=11788 Also in case you didn't know X2 Bios Manager v2.1 was also released. It's now extremely reliable and supports flashing both the Lite and Pro X2 mods. It even has a new Internet Updatable MD5 bios listing. Another extra is to be able to flash the X2 pro using a lite programmer if you ever needed to. Get it from here: (Need to be registered) http://www.teamxecuter.com/modules.php?name=Downloads&d_op=getit&lid=10 We also encourage you to use the lastest Avalaunch Dashboard along with the fantastic Qwix Windows App. We won't explain what Qwix is just try it out for yourself. We've seen whats coming in the new Avalaunch, it will most definatley be the dash of choice this year.
