Team Xecuter presents XECUTER2 BIOS Build 4978

22nd August 2003


So what's new ?

Well we've been saying it for a long time - that Bios's would 1 day breal the 1MB barrier and beyond.

Team Xecuter are proud to give you a glimpse into to the future of Xbox Bios's and Modification hardware.

We have acheived another world first by embedding an entire FTP server into the BIOS - so as soon as you
install the mod you are able to FTP into your XBOX with no hacked dashboard installed - or you may have evox,
avalaunch, mxm or another installed but you messed up the settings. Those worries are now a thing of the past
with X2 4978. Now bear in mind this is a glimpse at some of the ideas we're working very hard on with X3 - it's
taking a long time to produce so we thought you at least deserved to get a glimpse of what to expect.

XBOX is set to a Static IP:, Subnet Mask:, Login/Pass: x3 / x3

Simply setup your NIC to a similar IP (e.g. with a subnet mask of and NO GATEWAY or DNS)

The mod acts as normal in default mode - you won't even notice anything is different. EvoX FTP settings are not
affected and you have your perfectly normal (if you can call it normal) X2 dashboard.

To activate the FTP Server - simply press and hold the "A" button on bootup and then connect to your XBOX :)

Speeds are not as fast as can be (dont forget this is Alpha) but you will still get a respectable 2000KB/Sec
I recorded an average: Transferred 1 file totaling 19,302,690 bytes in 10.23 (1,867.47 KB/Sec)

I'd also like to point out that we have changed the dashboard boot sequence:

1) evoXdash.xbe
2) avadash.xbe
3) mxmdash.xbe
4) xboxdash.xbe

Enjoy this latest release - trust is when we say we have SO MUCH MORE in the pipeline :)



Changes 4977->4978:
- Added FTP server, IP:, Mask:, login/password: x3/x3
- FTP server starts up if you keep the 'A' button pressed on bootup, otherwise the dashes are run
- Dashboard sequence changed to: evoXdash.xbe, avadash.xbe, mxmdash.xbe, xboxdash.xbe

Changes 4976.02->4977:
- Permanent No Reset On Eject - Finally got around to adding this - HATED to have it reset in xbox media player :-)

Changes 4976->4976.02:
- Unfortunately the 4976 hangs if people have a "debug" xbox and the default dash is set to launcher (xbsetcfg /l),
  this release fixes this problem

Changes 4975->4976:
- Disable IGR Feature
- Removed No AV Cable Check (for Lan whores etc - Requested Feature)
- Superfr0 Nice Error Screens (Credits to Superfr0 - should have added this as default a long time ago)

Changes 4974->4975:
- Auto Patcher for new media flag on new games - no need for patching !
- No DVD Drive Check - no longer throws Error 11 (Credits to SantMat)

Changes 4973->4974:

- ROM is now compatible to v1.0 and v1.1 Xboxes in one 256K image

Changes 4972->4973:
- Fixed "Non-Boot" Problem (tested on Silent Hill 2)

Please report bugs / new feature suggestions on the Xbox Forums -



This piece of software will most likely destroy your XBOX if you don't now what you are doing!

You can do EVERYTHING with the Xecuter2 bios - its 100% compatible with all features of EvoX Dash and more.


Thanks to all ops and staff in #xbins, #xboxhacker and for their support

Props to Xodus guys for informing us that LFRAME was possibly disconnected on the new v1.3 LPC

Props to Ravencry for spending a good 12 hours racking each others brains to find that the MCPX was no 
different to the v1.2 - it ended up being a lot easier than we anticipated.

We would also like to acknowledge Team Assembly who we have collaborated with to release TATX Debug Bios's and
many new apps / features to come very soon. Info and support can be found at

Due to a couple of members retiring from the group and real life stuff happening with the rest of us
we're finding it quite difficult to dedicate time to scene stuff and juggling our lives / jobs at the same time.

Shouts to the comrades who have left the group recently for personal reasons - you will be sorely missed !

The X3 mod is being developed by another group so that is not affected, however our scene work (i.e. all the free stuff)
will not be worked on as much as it used to be. We still have some ideas for new bios's and apps, so as and when we get time we will release to you.

Props to Evox, XBMP, Avalaunch, MXM, Xbox-Linux, XboxOpenSource, Team Xodus,,

Greets to all the sceners and freinds we've made over the past 18 months - there's way too many to mention but you know who you are.

F**k you to those intent on causing trouble in this fine scene. Suggestion - get a life / job / girl and/or boy
