Title: Dual Boot Vga
Post by: rablack97 on May 24, 2012, 03:53:26 PM

Hello I am running Frosty's dual boot VGA to display on a monitor.

No real complaints, just was wondering if there was a way to switch the mode buttons.

The power button if for normal or HDTV and the Eject button is used to initiate VGA, does anybody know of a way to switch the power button to initiate the VGA mode.

Try providing some basic information that might help......

What version of Xbox?
How is your Xbox modded?
If softmodded, which softmod?
If chipped, which chip?
If chipped or flashed, which BIOS?
What is your primary booting dashboard?

Not sure what you mean by how am  booting to the dashboard.....softmods normally boot to unleash or evidence unless custom...after I installed frostys softmod when I turn on my xbox it goes directly to his custom dashboard.

I used the splinter cell xploit

ok well the frosty mod is simply a softmod and wont work with a hacked bios.
It seems to be based on the M8+ bios.

of course this would be the dvd that was released. but i figure if most of the work was done with this bios then any continuation to enable vga would have been done to that one too.

and that has exhausted my entire knowlage of this particular mod.. Which is well not much lol.

It's not M8+ based, it's a standard UDE2 + nkpatcher 10 softmod.

Swap C:\fonts\default\open.xbe and C:\fonts\default\closed.xbe and your button operation will be reversed.

Make sure you have a backup copy of your eeprom, and can boot a rescue/install disc from DVD-R, before you make any changes.

Can you be a little more clear on swapping.

Are we talking on the shadowC or the real C drive where i loaded the VGA softmod?
