Chapter 12: The Advanced Options / Tools Section

Installing SID to HDD or Memory Card

This option can be used either to set up an Xbox HDD for an unmodded Xbox, or to install it directly to your memory card or USB device (such as a Mega X-Key).

The Gameshark version is included in the package; however it’s not on the installer.

BIOS Checker

This tool can be used to check what BIOS is running from either your Modchip or TSOP. It can report back on the size of the chip, the bios, and what kind of chip it is (not the Modchip brand like Xecuter etc, the actual brand of the flashable chip).

The data that the MD5 check uses is the same as what’s in EvoX and Media X Menu for this release, and up to date including the X2 5032 BIOS.

BIOS Flasher

This is an option which will boot to the EvoX system, in order for you to flash a TSOP or BIOS.


This is a Linux tool that allows you to upgrade your Xbox HD in place by hotplug a second HD after you have booted Xbox.


This tool is used to backup and restore your Xbox’s Eeprom, and can also be used to view information such as your Xbox Region, HDD Key / Brand, DVD Drive information etc. It’s mainly used for changing Eeproms if you've been banned from Xbox Live. It will pull your Eeprom from your Xbox, or another Xbox, so that you can transfer it to another Xbox.

There is a SWF tutorial included in the AID 4 package which shows you how to use it in order to change Eeproms.

Enigmah NTSC-PAL Video Switcher

This program can be used to change the Video Setting on your Xbox to either PAL or NTSC. This does not damage your Eeprom or anything and is completely safe to use.

Some good examples on when this should be used are when you’re playing a game from a different region (for example, PAL users wanting to play a NTSC game). However, this is not needed to view different region DVDs, as the DVD players have built in multi-region capabilities.


This program can be used to repartition your Xbox. There is documentation included in the package on how to use it (you can find this in Docs\Applications), but honestly should only be used at a last resort I feel, as normal formatting and partitioning are fine for most users.
