I just have a few quick questions regarding the cheapmod.
On xbox-scene there is a tut to make a dual 256k bank on a cheapmod but the link is a bad one and takes my no where so i was just wondering if someone actually new how to do this.
Also im getting the impression that you can reflash a cheapmod from evolutionx is this true or can you only flash it once and thats it.
thanks for your help

A real cheapmod is only 256K and thus can;t have a dual image. They are flashable from Evox as many time as you would like (up to about 50K erase/write cycles). The dual bios would either be using a 512K chip and playing around with addressing (not easy on the LPC interface) or uses 2 256K chips and switches between the CS signal. (I believe it's active low)
