Chameleon Won't Flash :(
Posted 27 December 2003 - 04:33 AM
Well I'm kinda n00b with this stuff so Here's the problem, I have a Xbox v1.0 with a Chameleon bought from EB2k (red led). It has the default Cromwell 2.27 bios on it. I want to flash it to something else since Evo-X won't boot from that bios. But I can't get to flash the damn thing. I've been trying for 6 hours and it still says "Waiting for drive...". I burnt the CD with Nero folowing the tutorials and everything. I use memorex CD-RW (it's a thomson drive btw) burnt at 4X with Nero folowing the instructions from a tutorial on this site. I start up the Xbox, then I select the CD thing in the bottom, then it says Waiting for drive, I wait 2 minutes, insert my CD with LINUXBIO.BIN and AAAA.AAA (Windows XP SP1 rared up) on it, then it says waiting for drive...and finaly after some time the cd is ejected and it says "Insert the cd and press the a button blablabla". Tried it with another Memorex CD-RW and it still doensn't work. I really don't know what I am doing wrong... Could you guys help me ?

or if you feel really cool, you can open your thomson and make the voltage mod (you can find it under tutorial on this web site.. look quite hard to do)

after a few weeks i felt like pissing on my thomson... try a philips - as has already been suggested... my cousins worked flawlessly in my xbox...
jon, btw... been wondering if you knew anything about xbox attempting to boot 3 times, then finally staying on and flashing the led around the eject button red and green with no video output whatsoever...
what hapnd was i flashed a chameleon 2.27 with a bad bios i think... and changing banks doesnt effect a thing.. i also flashed my chameleon 1.8 with the same bad bios and was able to switch banks and reflash (successfully with x2 4977) ... but the cromwell 2.27 just wont do it.... (red led on the chip, xbox power led flashs red and green nonstop)
what to do???
currently trying to get evox dash onto my chip to hopefully execute a hotswap with my cousins bad chip and use the reflash option in evox? i know nothing about this first hand because i havent gotten there yet...

i was lucky enough to have a cousin who also wanted to modify his xbox...
try convincing your cousin to modify his becuz its cool and while he's at it, grab his drive for a bit...
or... as has also already been suggested.. get some dvd-r's and a dvd burner and repeat what you've done onto one of those...
any of your neighbors have a dvd burner? ask around, do some research.
sorry thats all i can tell ya
