Could be that my Xbox is running v5004, not sure. Have to check that. I can only tell that it's certainly in there, as one of the first things I did was to replace the HDD from the previous owner with no backup whatsoever. Just put a new HDD in, booted from CD and installed it. RTC cap was flat with no valid date/time.
That list is also odd in that it says the IND-BIOS does not work on a 1.6 Xbox. But my Xbox is 1.6...
Looks like the general consensus is that IND-BIOS only works on 1.0-1.5. For example:
iND-BiOS 5003 (Size 256KB only for v1.0-1.5, not v1.6)
iND-BiOS Feb-11-05 Beta (aka 5004) (Size: 256KB only for v1.0-1.5, not v1.6)
..from a recent source.
Actually can't find a single instance implying it'll work on 1.6 boxes too.
You can't possibly have misidentified your box? 😀
Also found conflicting info on M8, according to some sources it actually can boot past the clock check.
