You should be able to do the flash over again. Rehook up your modchip, boot into evox. Then cut the wires. Then flash. This time make your bios into a 1meg bios by going into dos and using this command. "copy file.bin+file.bin+file.bin+file.bin newfilename.bin" Put in the name of the 256 bios in for "file" and put the name that you want to save to in "newfilename.bin" It will make ti into a 1meg bios then and work. I did this with the x-ecutor2 bios.

Right now your XBOX can not be started. The Enigmah is a nice chip but it is dangerous. If you have a problem during flashing the TSOP you can not use it to recover.

You have a couple options at this point. You can go with a home brew or a Xtender. You can use these to fix the onboard bios. I have not seen any Xtenders for sale for quite some time. I had a bad flash on a friends board a good while ago thank goodness I had a old motherboard with 256K socketed flash ROM. I was really lucky with that one.


The other option is you can use a LPC mod. They will by pass the onboard bios then you can boot from them.

Sevik the enigmah does not work that way it is not a bios replacment. It still needs the OEM bios in order to work.

You think if I solder again the Enigma mod chip and start the Xbox, I will be able to boot on a CD? uhh.gif

Because when I flashed the bios I just use a CD with flasher and the bios ONlY on the CD.

Because when I start the Xbox I have a black screen 'no logo animation' and the light green & red blink.

How much the LPC mod cost ?
How doesn't it work?

As I stated eairler the Engimah can not be used after a bad TSOP flash. It does not have a built in BIOS it is only a modifier. It does not matter were you flashed from. You still need a bios to tell the system how to start. As I said you can NOT use the enigmah for this.

LCP mod prices are in the ranges of $35 - $60 +/- 5%.

i have ordered for http://www.extreme-mods.com before and had no problems.

No problem you are not irritating don't worry about it. biggrin.gif

Anyway a LPC mod describes a class of mod chip designed to connect to the LCP Bus on the XBOX motherboard. There are quite a few of these out.

From seeing you have installed a Enigmah it is safe to asume soldering is not a problem. If I had to make a chioce today on what mod chip I wanted I would go for the X2 Lite since the pro is not out. It is preloaded with the newest bios and packs a good bit of funtionality. You can flash it if you need to.

So I may buy the X-ecutor 2 (Lite version), so I can't play until I receive the mod chip.

Is there other mod chip that I can get quickly than X-ecutor 2 (Lite version), I live in France.

In fact, I will buy a mod chip to flash the bios, I will use it 5 minutes (flash the bios) and remove it.

Thanks

If you have a old PC motherboard or a local PC shop you may be able to make a home brew. You need to reflash the bios on the board and remove the chip. There is a nice turorial on it here:
http://www.xbox-scen...homemademod.php

That may be the quickest way. Since parts are readily available.

This will let you fix the onboard bios. The LPC mods will not.

Hye, I order a X-ecutor 2 (Lite version).

When I will receive it, I just have to install the X-ecutor 2 in the Xbox and it will work well. (because as you say the X-ecutor 2 has a bios included).

But do you know how I can flash the xboxboard bios.
I know how to do it with the enigma modchip, I installed it boot the xbox with flash CD, cut the two wire and launch the flash.

But I don't know how to do the same type of manipulation with the X-ecutor 2.

Thanks for your help.

The X2 Lite can be flashed through the EVOX dashbaord. You can not flash the onboard bios with this mod. I though I had stated that earlier.

Then I will never be able to recover the onboard bios?
For recorcer it I have to make a home brew.

After install the X2 Lite, I must let the modchip in the xbox.

But I will never allow to use the xbox live, no?

This is your only option if you want to fix your onboard tsop:
Get a homebrew
install it (29 wires)
flash your xbox tsop
take the homebrew out

Your all done and xbox is back to normall.

If you want to have an original bios so you can play live and also a mod chip so you can have a larger hard driveand ect your best bet would be to have a switch so you can use the homebrew for moded purposes and then flip the switch to go back to the xbox bios.
I think this would be the best option for you since you want to fix you tsop.
