Any Reason *not* To Flash Onboard Tsop?
Posted 08 November 2002 - 03:39 PM
Now that might sound like a strange thing to ask but I have not really seen any Good/Bad points about flashign the onboard TSOP..
I have a Messiah MX chip installed (11 Wires).. Sadly this doesn't allow me to add a larger Hdd unit.
So I am tempted to reflash the onboard Bios and then add a larger Hdd then removing the Messiah Mx.
Any reason why I shouldn't?
Is there a way of backing up the onboard TSOP before flashing it?
Really loving the Divx and Emu's on this baby at the mo.. Gosh why did I wait so long??

Now very happy and awaiting the arrival of my spanking new hdd 120gb to go in it.
I know lots of people go on and on about doing it for piracy, but to be honest if anyone wants to do that they're going to buy a PS2 (more games etc). Although I understand some people will just pirate anything..
Me I'm happy playing Movies and Emu's on my swanky widescreen telly.
If I want games I'll buy some for X,y,z console.. Not going to tie up nice new baby..
Thanks to everyone that has replied and helped me along the way, All the info is here but you need to read very carefully, as a lot is hidden away.
For those still wondering, yes you can just swicth the power lines to the Messiah-X once t has booted up (A & C).
Cheers once again..
Now where did I put that emu cd.. hubba hubba

Or buy a full BIOS replacement chip and skip all the bullshit and headaches.

Once again thanks to all the people who pass on their information, big thanks to the Xbox-Scene guys and everyone else who puts up with the same questions over and over again.
