Here's the way :

it just uses the LPC bus in order to rip bios of ANY 'lpc modchip'.

cool. i just hope that their bios doesnt have some kind of detection algorithm checking if the bios is on the right board. looks like (imho) openxbox is the way to go since it has an easy upgrade function. x-ecuter's "new add-on" might be a cable similar to openxbox to allow upgrades which means more $$$ for us cheap bastards tongue.gif.

Can you use the CheapLPC cable to reprogram the TSOP XBox bios?

It's the same problem than with others LPC devices :
After booting in LPC mod , there's no known way to access the parallel A/D bus of the TSOP flash . And I don't think tou can directly do this using cheaplpc . Wait and see smile.gif

Concerning that point Xtender FAQ has beed updated ...
it can't flash TSOP onboard ...
