Xbox Turns Off/on/off/on After Flash
Posted 12 May 2004 - 08:32 PM
I have a Xecuter 2.2 Lite modchip in my v1.5 Xbox, and I was going to install a new hdd. I had the X2 4981.06 installed. I decided to flash with a bios that supported the G partition. I insterted the new hdd, booted with SlaYer's EvoX Auto-Installer v2.5 and went to 7-8 - Flash 256K MOD or v1.2-1.5 TSOP w/X2-4977 +137 G: (I flashed to Bank 1) The flash went well with no error messages and turned off. But when I turned it on again the Xbox turn off/on off/on and the red light kept blinking with no picture. It does the same if I try to boot from bank 2. If I turn the mod-chip off I get an error screen (even with my old hdd).
What can I do to recover? Many thanks in advance!

1.) Your BIOS is not properly flashed (sounds likely in this case).
2.) Your chip is not making proper contact. This means that you should realign the chip (if it is solderless) or go over your solder points to make sure there are no cold solder joints. The most likely problem is the d0 point but it could be another point as well.

Any suggestions on how I'm going to reflash? Softmod, programmer?

Just have the flash bios item enabled in the evox.ini and place your bios.bin in a folder called bios in the same directory as evox.
I think i just made that sound confussing. Don't try this until afew other people say its correct or wrong, because this is just going by memory on something i have never done before.
If you have access to a programmer i think it would be quicker using that instead.

But what is the recommended flashing method for X 2.2 Lite? I don't seem to find any good tuts out there, some says this and another says that. If someone could post an url to a good site, that would be just great

if not then use an Xecuter programmer and X2 BM v2.1
hope this helps
