Help Flashing Matrix
Posted 04 February 2004 - 10:03 PM
I have a chameleon installed on my xbox. I don't know how the Matrix works, but can I just replace my chameleon with the matrix and flash it via cd-rw? Or is there a way I can boot up with my chameleon, then put in the matrix and flash via EvoX?
Any help would be great! thanks.

I have installed a couple of Matrix chips and the programing it does give a bit of trouble.
The things i check are below:
1. Make sure you have the latest software from Xodus Website
2. Make sure you have a new battery in the programmer.
3. Make sure you have no printer apps running ( look in the task bar near the time)
I have a HP printer and the printer software installs a print monitor in taskbar and until i shutdown that monitor it wont detect the Matrix programer.
Swithes dont make a difference with a programmer ( the chip detects the programer and automatically switches into the right mode).
Hope that helps...

You can flash it with a CD-RW, using Evox.
Xodus recomend the first flash be done via the parallel port (thats why its supplied with a programmer).
After the first flash you can then install run evox and reflash with evox.
But if something get corrupt during flash via CD-RW, you will have to remove chip and flash via parrallel port.
As for for hot-swapping chips, i dont think many people if any have done it.
