|I flashed my bios, using ExoX on my hard drive, but I forgot one small, yet important detail. Like a dumbass, I didn't put my Matrix into mode 4. Is my modchip dead forever now? I can't reflash or erase it anymore. Or, is there some way to fix it.. without buying a new one?|
Have you pulled the Matrix out and used the programmer to reprogram it ?

I have a Matrix chip. It's flashed with an EvoX 2.5 bios with colormod. I then burned EvolutionX 1.8.3285 onto a CD-RW. It worked, so I FTP'd over EvolutionX to replace the M$ dashboard. I added to the menu, and FTP'd things over (such as XBMP, Q2x, and emus). Everything was great and working. But then, while my mod chip is on mode 2 (where the origional BIOS is always overtaken by the chip) I hit 'Flash BIOS' in the EvolutionX program. This is while it was IN my xbox, and NOT through the programmer that came on it. This, apparently, fied my modchip. I could no longer boot up my xbox with my modchip. No dash came up, only a flashing red LED on the eject button.
Because it was not working, I took the Matrix modchip out, and powered on the console. Of course, since I replaced the M$ dashboard with EvolutionX I can't use my X-BOX. With my modchip, now taken out, I plugged it into the Programmer, and started WinLPC. I cannot erase or reflash my modchip now.
What I need to know is, Have I fried my modchip? And if I did, is there any hope of fixing it?

You if you dont have the chip in mode4 the dashboards "Flash Bios" aint suppose to shit to the chip since its write protected.
I tried before to flash the chip while in mode 3 it didnt work.
Another time I had the chip in mode4 tried to flash it again it went halfways or so then it fucked up and my box wouldnt boot.
So I had to take the chip out and manually program it with the programmer.
The programmer is very sensitive so keep trying.
