Flashed My Modded X-box And Now It Doesn't Work
Posted 19 March 2004 - 01:10 AM
I tested it.. the lights came on blah blah. all systems go.
I tested it with DVD and HDD, looked good. dvd tray ejected fine.
I turn it off again..... power back on.. tray ejects.. stick in my BIOS cd "4981.67_bfm_fixed" - I did make it into a 1024 bios btw. it flashes fine.. i watch the bar get to 100% ... then it did it again to 100% ... then it shut off on it's own. I press the power button and it Turns On.. then Off... turns On... then Off... Turns On and stays on.. but the Eject light is flashing Green and Red.
I've tried re-flashing it via LTP port but I still get the same problem.
If I turn off the mod chip (switch in the front) the x-box works fine.
What can I do to fix this? Do I need to re-program it with a different bios?
I can still use it as a normal x-box but I'd really like to know where to go from here.
Please any help would be wonderful.
shouldn't I be able to re-flash it via LPT and be cool? I've tried 3 different bios' with the same problem.
Could it be a problem with the way I soldered it in? It looks clean. I've checked it twice.

Obviously I missed that detail upon my researches, but I'm aware of this now.
Thank you for pointing me in the right direction.

I have a chameleon and no programmer so I'm kinda stuck. Absolutely nothing works since the xbox won't even "come alive".
1) Why didn't the flash work?
2) I should be able to change to another bank and start the xbox from there right?
I really really need help...

Yes... well.. I thought I did...
Is the xbox just trying to find an .xbe? It's not even displaying the big green X anymore. The screen is absolutely dead. The xbox winds up, down, up, down and then the eject button flashes red/green...
The FC option makes the bios first boot from F then C. I had installed an xbe on F and there is the old one on C so neither should be a problem.
I Flashed the bank 0 with this flash, but even when i try to change bank it doesn't start. Same error that is.
When I asked why the flash didn't work I really meant why didn't the bios work on my xbox.
Thank you for answering btw!
