|Use the evox to try to flash the bios. Just a thought.|
Use "the evox" to flash the bios?? We're just trying to flash the chip first, the chips aren't even booting a BIOS yet, only Cromwell.

|I just installed my X3... I can flash the M8 bios, but every time I've tried flashing any 1024 bios it hangs with about 25% of the status bar completed.|
All it did was erase the current bank, and did not complete the writing part of the flash process. Read the whole first sentence next time dumbass.

| I just installed my X3... I can flash the M8 bios, but every time I've tried flashing any 1024 bios it hangs with about 25% of the status bar completed. I've tried flashing with banks 1 and 2 on and the rest off. I've also tried flashing with all banks off (2MB flash). I have no idea why it hangs. I can flash the 256 M8 bios to all sections of the chip -- but for some reason I can't flash a larger bios file. Any Ideas?|
are you flashing the chip with the right bios from the rar file? if you have a 1.6 xbox you have to flash it with the 16 bios. if not, flash with the regular 1957. make sure you rename the file to bios.bin. just rename as bios cause window's already knows it a bin file

With regards to the resoldering of the LPC's on pins 13 and 14... I was wondering if a bad solder would prohibit you from flashing a 1024KB bios or if a bad solder would only prohibit you from entering X3 config live (since config live requires LPC's 13 and 14).
I guess it boils down to which LPC's are used to flash the bios -- and if there are different LPC's used to flash different portions of the bios. ie-- 256KB bios vs a 1024KB bios.
If there are indeed different LPC's required to flash a 1024 bios then it is a possibility that my LPC's were bad... but if the flashing requires the same LPC's for both a 256KB flash and a 1024KB flash then my chip was simply defective.
