X2.3b Flash Problem
Posted 19 February 2004 - 04:27 PM
Hate to sound like a newb / noob, but I'm baffled..
I got my mod chip in the Xbox earlier (v1.0 box if it matters) , and downloaded several Xecuter BIOS's from xbins, followed all the guides - make it 512k, get a dummy file, burn with Nero .... done all that, and the chip still won't flash!
On my screen, it looks likes this:
FlashBIOS (Cromwell 2.28 dev)
© (blah blah...)
Cusstomized by Team (and so forth..)
ATA 28-bit LBA Support Only
hda: WDC WD80EB-28CGH1 24.84G24 &4GB Lck - FATX - No MBR
1: detect FAILED, error=04
Please insert CD - Flashing Mode
Tray pops out..
So I insert the Flash CD, the "Please inset CD - Flashing Mode" pauses ... pauses .... ejects the CD and starts blinking again...
I've also tried making the bios 1mb, still no luck.. I've also tried another CD-RW .. nope
Any ideas anyone? Greatly appreciated. If it matters, I used to Pin Head installation.
Thanks in advanced!
[Edit: I've noticed the Xbox doesn't work with the chip disabled...

"hdb: Samsung 605..."
"1: detect FAILED, error=04"
Is your IDE cable plugged in properly. This would explain why it doesn't work with the chip disabled....

IDE cable is in fine, no problem there...
I have a Thompson DVD Drive in the box ... thats the problem I spose?

What error do you get when you boot with the chip disabled?

The error guide says:
12 - kernel - DVD parameters (PIO/DMA)
No idea what that means, but I assume it means the DVD Drive isn't plugged in correctly?

I'll check the Ide cable at the same time ...
Thanks for the help everyone, specially Juggler

IDE Cable was put in at an angle - that was the whole problem. Chip has flashed no problem, just about to boot disk it
Thanks alot for everyones help, greatly appreciated - time to get at Halo!
