I've got an xecuter2.3b chip and am about to flash it. I think after reading lots of tuts, I think I have to make a 1mb bios image (using x2bmv2).

In the tuts it says to fill all four banks with the same bios version. Does that mean I lose the preinstalled Cromwell bios (so if it goes pear shaped im stuffed?).

And if I put 1 bios in two banks in x2bm and a different one in the other two, will the 1mg image flash two different bios's to my chip so I can use the chip switch to choose between them?

Thanks

yes you need to fill all 4 banks, and you will lose cromwell

and yes to the second question about switching banks

it's also not a good idea to post the same question twice, especialy on the same day

Does it matter whether i put a 512k bios in the first two banks or the last two?
Do I leave the other two empty?

you can fill it in at all 4, you will lose your cromwell and in that case it`s nice to have a backup.
