Finally Got My Smartxx Installed On My 1.6b

1. Install Bios
2. Install Dashboard
and I can just burn these onto a cd and put it in the xbox to put them on right?
Is that all I really need to get started? I didn't see a definitive answer for this, plus from what I have read there are different Bios for the 1.6B.

No; you don't need to burn a CD unless you are planning on upgrading your HD. If you just want to flash the bios:
1. Confirm you chip is installed correctly
2. Hook your box up to your router. Assuming it can accept dynamic addresses, you should see your ip on the from SmartXX OS screen.
3. In browser http://XXX.XXX.XX.XX (ip of your box)
4. Choose flash bios. You'll want to use M8 16, either standard or Plus if you plan on upgrading your HD to larger than 137 GB.
Look for the tutorial elsewhere in this forum (post-install tutorial I believe it's called) very easy to follow.

I have a v1.6 box here too with a smartXX chip
The pc flash utility on their site doesn't work.
And i installed the chip.. can't see a bloddy thing on the screen when it boots.
How am i supposed to flash this thing.. i've tried the web method.. and it won't connect either.
Its installed properly as i am getting the flashing leds.. and it also connected properly on my network.
