Is the X-ecuter chip flash upgradable? IF not, then it would be obsolete the moment a new EVOX bios gets released or M$ changes their protection, right?

At least with the 29 wire mods, you can reflash the internal bios with the newest EVOX. With the X-ecuter mod, you can't use EVOX to flash the internal bios, can you? They should really make it flashable - preferably via EVOX

Question: The x-ecutor cannot be flashed, so that means if new games come out and developed with knowledge of the mod, you would need a new mod? correct?


Answer: No! You don't even need a new mod now if you are modded; you can flash your onboard BIOS with the Evo-X BIOS or a new one later!

you can flash the internal BIOS with any mod.

You just need to solder 2x2points together to enabled onboard flashing. And you need a modchip installed so you can boot the flashtool.

Once intrenal BIOS is flashed you can remove the modchip.

Flashing the onboard bios is a solution, yes. Until, of course, software developers start specifically checking such things. Then you'll be wishing you had a way to switch between bioses. My solution to this possibility was simple. I ordered a BioXX. And I won't be touching the onboard bios.
