External Programming Of Aladdin Advance
Posted 05 February 2004 - 07:53 AM
Does anyone know of an external programmer + program that can be used to flash aladdin advance bios?
ps. Only I've heard of it being reflashed is from a local programmer that makes his own flashing tools.

Just take the SSt out of the aladdin socket and pop it in the cheapmod board and flash no problems.
It WILL NOT work doing it that way obviously if the Aladdin does not have a removable SST49LF020.

You need the programmer, the cheapmod lite board, a serial cable to connect to the pc and a 12v power supply. Optional is a PLCC removal tool I got one for £2.45 (UK). It makes removal of the SST chip a doddle.
basically connect the programmer to the pc via the serial cable and fit your SST chip into the socket on the cheapmod board.
Use Win LPC to flash the chip. All you have to do is click on open and open the 256k bios file you want to flash to the chip, select on the screen the com port you are connected to and click write. About 2 minutes later job is done. This programmer will flash an Aladdin with header socket fitted and also flashes the Terminator mod.
Its very good and it works

The serial cable connects between one of the COM ports on the PC and the programmer

yes my chip is socketed.
so i buy those 2 items i posted and a cable to connect to the pc.
but how do i connect together the programmer and the socket so i can plug the chip in? do i have to solder? or can it just plug straight in.

No soldering required

so we have the following:
socket for plcc> programmer > serial cable > pc
