--------------------------------[iND-BiOS 5001]-------------------------------

Release info:

We are a group of xbox enthusiasts that just wasnt satisfied in how far BIOS
development has come, and decided to take matters into our own hands.
Basically, we went through the current bioses feature lists, and the requested
bios hacks thread on forums.xbox-scene.com, and implemented all that we could.
We are open to most feature suggestions, especially if you feel that you can
help implement them.  We are aware of 2 of the most requested features that we
have not done; xbox live hack, and embedded ftp.  The former we will not be
touching, sorry.  As for the later, never say never! :)

We know how many people love to customize their bios to fit their exact needs,
and we made an effort to make every option that we could configurable.  All of
the configurable options are controlled by a .cfg file (ini style) on the 
xbox hard drive.  We have included a win32 application that will edit this
file for you, which should eleminate user error for the most part.

Loading the config file from the disk requires a short delay while the IDE is
initialized. If you don't like the delay you can inject your config file into
the BIOS with our ConfigInjector tool. Note that an injected config does have
its disadvantages. Please see the ConfigInjector readme.txt for more info.

Please remember that this is our first public release, and bugs are expected.
Please report all bugs in the bios forum, on forums.xbox-scene.com, or #ind-bios
on EFnet.

Custom "X" Logo - c:\xlogo.x
Custom "XBOX" text - c:\text.x

The .x files we tested from http://xfiles.kernelbase.com/ needed their face
orientation reversed to show as logos, so if yours doesn't show that could be
the problem.

You can download/upload .x models and mslogo.bmp's from www.allxboxskins.com

Paul B's (oz_paul) full lba48 mods are featured, including support for an
on-disk partition table.

.06 uses the "F takes rest of drive" partition scheme
.67 uses the "F takes upto 137, G takes rest of drive" scheme

Please note that both builds are lba48 compatible, if you have a drive smaller
then 137gigs, it does not matter which build you use.

XBOX Live Block
We have included an xbox live patch in this build - it is, however, untested.
All games should be patched with smo's patch to disable Xblive.
All MS dash .xbe's should be patched to block the network completely,
stopping dash updates which the first patch does not.
Thanks to smo for this patch info.

Custom Error Screen
Our error screen will give the standard error number + a brief description of
the error.  Kudos to superfr0 for the first user-friendly error screens done
so long ago.

Thanks and greetz:
Barnabas, Complex, Evolution-X, MODCHIP-SOURCE, OzXodus, Paul B, Smartxx, thc,
Team Avalaunch, Xbins, Xbox-Scene.com, XBMC, Xecuter, and the rest.

NOTE that we are in NO way associated with ind-bios.com. We find Freakware to
be very childish in their recent domain registration.

ps. kl0wn is teh fagg0r!
