|What original bios? Pro's don't come preflashed (for the most part). I think a couple resellers preflash with Cromwell but that only lets you install Linux|
I think he means the original BIOS. Cromwell usually comes flashed on the Lite chips and you can install any BIOS through Cromwell, not just linux.
presh, what exactly are you referring to? You have a pro chip? If so you can flash the different banks with different BIOS versions. You original Xbox BIOS should be fine.

| I didn't know Cromwell allowed you to flash new bioses onto the chip. I never had a chip w/ Cromwell on it.|
I should have specified. The Cromwell FLASH BIOS is a legal BIOS that comes preflashed on Xecuter Lite chips. This simply boots the Xbox and asks for a BIOS CD (to reflash with whatever BIOS you want).
|I flashed all the banks with the same bios. I want to get rid of 2 at least. When I plug in my my xbox with the lpt and to my computer and turn the xbox on, the x2bm doesn't read my chip anymore. So now I can't flash different bios on it. Anyway to get the original cromwell back on it?|
If you have an Xecuter Pro then they don't come with Cromwell on them. They don't have any BIOS.
Basically you can flash all four banks with whatever BIOS versions you want (four different, all the same, etc.) and then select which BIOS you boot by switching the dip switches to load the appropriate BIOS bank.
I hope that helps.

It's so easy to flash xecuters with it.
Use xbtool to resize the bios you want to 512 (so you can have 2 different bios) or 256(so you can have 4 different).
Upload the bios to the xbox and flash.

With x2bm, you can select any bank to flash or any size bios up to 1mb.
Also you want to power up your xbox after x2bm is loaded and the LPC connection is made.

| What!! that can`t be right. |
that depend on where you buy them
what about this site?? cromwell on xecuter pro...
My mistake, I was thinking of the older Xecuter chips.
Presh, how are you connecting to the chip to flash it?

Also, what LED colors does the modchip show when you power the XBOX with the modchip switched on and off? It may just be fried. That happends sometimes.
