About Modchip Hotswapping
Posted 29 September 2004 - 03:54 AM
So here is my main question. Reading the hotswap tutorial it said you needed a modchip that is exactly the same as the one you have. Is this true? Do i have to have another Chameleon to hotswap? I installed a 2.3bLite into one of my friends xbox's could i hotswap with that one and use evox to flash?
Kind of a sidequestion I have a 2.3b Pro that won't boot and i can't flash with LPT port (don't ask) could hotwap with the 2.3bLite with this one?
Also about flashing the TSOP with the chameleon. After i get this baby working i plan to resurrect some dead TSOPed motherboards. Problem is, they have winbond TSOP which cannot be flashed with Evox correct? Is it possible to flash a Winbond with a Chameleon? Also where can i find a good guide for flashing tsop with chameleon.
Thanks for your help!

also the TSOP flash thingy really only works if you have a 1.0 or 1.1 with a partial flash, ive never heard of any success with higher versions (like yours with a winbond) or completely hosed TSOPs

|Couldn't you boot the bad TSOP'd mobo with a chip and boot into raincoat. Then remove the chip and TSOP flash via telnet from raincoat? Raincoat is what I use to flash Winbond chips.|
no, after booting from the LPC its only possible to see, read from and write to the LPC, you cant flash the TSOP

|i wouldnt recommend hotswapping a x2 lite with a chameleon unless you have a pinheader installed (in which case its hella easy, just boot, swap chips and flash, simple as that)|
Ya it's installed with a pinheader. I just thought that there was a reason (hardware incombatibility) other than install method.
Also I know about the not being able to access the TSOP if booted from LPC and vice versa. Sounds like i might have a problem. Maybe i will try the socketed TSOP mod. That would be pretty cool!
Thanks for the help.
