How To Boot Another Xbe With Tray Open.
« on: August 28, 2004, 01:32:24 AM »


 This is for those that don't use tools that allready have the traystate options in them (ltools,FBL) but do want to be able to boot to another dash with the tray open

Stuff needed:

- dual-habibi.xbe (can be found here)

- hex editor of your choice

- xbedump

- UDE 1/2,UXE exploited xbox along with FTP acces

- two xbe files that you wish to run on bootup (one of them is probably allready installed to run on bootup).


WARNING:

The stuff you're about to do affects the files that the xbox uses to boot correctly. If any mistakes are made you will probably end up with a nice error screen. Therefore I highly recomend to only do this if you have a simple way to recover from that (gamesave exploit).


The Install:

- Okay now first extract the dual-habibi.xbe from the b.64 code from the post. (Complete instructions can be found here at the bottom of the first post).

- Now transfer the font file you used for the UDE/UXE install from the xbox to the pc. (newer font users only need ernie.xtf, older ones bert_ate_ernie.xtf).
Open this font file in the hex-editor. You should see this line somewhere in the text section. (you can use the find/search option)

 Heya,

Just did this but did it a little differently to your method.

I hexed Dual-Habibi.xbe changing default.xbe to pbl.xbe and replacing the other no-longer used bytes with 00 bytes, XBEDump -Habibied msxboxdash.xbe and dual-habibi.xbe, renamed Phoenix Loader from e:\default.xbe to e:\pbl.xbe and uploaded the altered Dual-Habibi.xbe as e:\default.xbe.

Not sure if I preferred it before as I use legit games, but it's easy enough to change back. smile.gif

Thanks to the supporters also, nice code.

 Ok I have the same problem, eject trick wont work on mod chip. I also dont have a mod chip. Im a noob to this and I have no idea how to use a hex editor. Is there a Px HDD loader that just works? Im not looking for the easy way out, I just dont know how to do what you say. P.S. my "mod chip" does allow eject on reset.

 This sounds interesting... would it work with the msdashboard when in DVD-Player mode? I tend to hate it when my xbox reboots while watching a two-parter movie... IE: When I go to take out the first dvd, and put in the second one, it reboots... I use MSdash's dvd player because of the remote dongle... and because xbmc crashes on SOME dvds... let alone the impossibility to open dvd menus on xbmc... ugh.

 The dualboot-habibi is designed to work from bootup. So if your tray open xbe is set to launch msdash and your xbox reboots when openening to take a movie out it will reboot to msdash.

 hey guys, is it possible to boot to a certain xbe depending on the type of media in the drive? as opposed to the tray state.

because i also use the ms dash to watch dvds, and unfortuantely if a dvd is entered after the ms dash has loaded, then the xbox reboots (this doesn't matter in an unmodded as it will boot straight to ms dash again). i also hate having to load the ms dash whenever watching a film.

my current setup is

tray open = ude > ltools menu

tray closed = ude > ltools dual habibi > bios > dash.

could i set it up like this?

dvd video disc in drive = ude > ltools dual habibi > custom habibi > ms dash

ideas please people.
