HI,

I don't have access to the flashbios at the moment, but if I don't recall wrongly, to flash the eeprom (which is supposed to be only if you really know what you're doing) is the last menu item.

Can someone help him? Just confirm if flashing eeprom is the last menu item!

Hi,

I've never used that option before. Not sure what it does, so didn't play with it, what with all the warnings and all. smile.gif Hopefully Shepd here can reply to your questions soon.

shepd, wicked work...a few questions:

are 'dummy' EEPROMs embedded in your 3.0.3??

later posts in this thread suggest that you should put in a DVD-R with the desired EEPROM to be installed...BUT I've found that if you simply select one of the "Flash EEPROM 1.x" options with NO DISC in the tray...a msg still comes up saying "EEPROM Flash successful"

I presume that if no disc is in the tray (containing the desired EEPROM to be installed) that it reverts to 'dummy' ones embedded in the BIOS?

best,

Haha

This was going to be my next question....sort of...

Since I cant see becasue of no video....

But thanks to ASTRiDMan I got a screen shot to work with....

When I goto flash Eeprom for a 1.6 nothing happens, which goes with your question, since I cant see but I bet mine is doing the same thing yours is...

Should we just go ahead and have the Eeprom DVDR in before we even goto that option?...

Ill play with it and see what happens....cant get worse than it is now lol

The eeproms are embedded, and are the just public dumps of eeproms. Since MS never bothered bunny about the eeprom dumps he made public, I figured they're fair game. Nobody has given me any trouble about them yet.

This means you don't need to put anything on a DVD-R/CD-R to flash your EEPROM.

AFAIK, they're all NTSC, so PAL users might need to find a multisystem TV to work on until they get a valid PAL EEPROM. I prefer it this way since in NTSC-land (where I live) it's virtually impossible to get a multisystem TV (A 13" model will run you at least $700 - $800 -- an absolute joke -- I use a Chinese TV -> VGA Box instead which handles ANYTHING).

Sorry I didn't get back to you, BaDvs3viL, but I didn't have an answer, since I hadn't done any XBOXes for a little while.

When you select the EEPROM option, it will just flash and leave the XBOX running, nothing else. I should probably have the XBOX turn off, but it's not a big deal.

BTW, BaDvs3vil, generally if you get a black screen on boot the BIOS has crashed your machine, which means you probably won't get too far, sorry. I think the second or third option down is to flash from DVD. If you try those and find the DVD tray doesn't eject, you will need to get the XBOX to boot properly first (usually by using one of my older BIOSes).

HTH!

Well I was able to get a screenshot of the flashbios screen. I knew the xbox was working with flashbios...I just didnt have any video....I used that screen shot and was able to choose the flash eerpom option for a 1.6 and it worked and fixed my xbox even though I couldnt see becasue of no video....

But eitherway it worked and did fix my box....

uhh.gif uhh.gif uhh.gif uhh.gif uhh.gif uhh.gif uhh.gif

I have x2 Pro modchip on my xbox v1.2. I just wonder if l can use any hacked X3 bios on my modchip. I also have some other questions too:

1/ X3 Patcher Beta v1.1 by Yoshihiro and Hyperstar to edit features of the X3 2914 bios so you can flash on any mod chip. Is that right?

2/ X3 2914 BIOS hacked which tested on Smartxx modchip on xbox 1.6. Does anyone use this on any other modchip like X2 and on other xbox version?

3/ Flashbios 3.0.3 "unauthorized" is X3 bios hacked, isn't it? will it work on my x2 pro modchip, xbox v1.2 ?

I am looking for an X3 bios hacked for my x2 modchip, xbox v1.2. Please help.
Thanks.

I've booted it on a prototype CleverMod Sunday chip. I can verify that you can not split that bios and it takes the entire 1mb.


I have questions about adding support for the software locking block registers on the new SST49LF004A/B chips the flashbios source I have for 3.0.1-3 has the Device ID code included. SST makes the A chip and B chip on the same ID, crappy. Also the B version now widely available is software write protected in a method other than the SDP commands. My So-far- nonworking code looks similiar to this:

CODE

#define T_BLOCK_LK     (FLASH_BASE_ADDRESS+0x30002) //0xFFBF0002
#define T_MINUS01_LK    (FLASH_BASE_ADDRESS+0x20002) //0xFFBE0002
#define T_MINUS02_LK    (FLASH_BASE_ADDRESS+65538) //0xFFBD0002
#define T_MINUS03_LK    (FLASH_BASE_ADDRESS+2)  // positive 0xFFBC0002
#define T_MINUS04_LK    (FLASH_BASE_ADDRESS-0xfffe)  //0xFFBB0002
#define T_MINUS05_LK    (FLASH_BASE_ADDRESS-0x1fffe) //0xFFBA0002
#define T_MINUS06_LK    (FLASH_BASE_ADDRESS-0x2fffe) //0xFFB90002
#define T_MINUS07_LK    (FLASH_BASE_ADDRESS-0x3fffe) //0xFFB80002
#define Unlock            0x00


as my defines then later I just tried to write to those locations that by default contain 0x01 and need tobe 0x00 to disable the software lock as per
This Data Sheet pages 21 and 22.

CODE

                               Write(T_BLOCK_LK,0x00);
 Write(T_MINUS01_LK,0x00);
 Write(T_MINUS02_LK,0x00);
 Write(T_MINUS03_LK,0x00);
 Write(T_MINUS04_LK,0x00);
 Write(T_MINUS05_LK,0x00);
 Write(T_MINUS06_LK,0x00);
 Write(T_MINUS07_LK,unlock);
 Write(FLASH_BASE_ADDRESS+65538,0x00);



I've been able to read the values are indeed 0x01 like the datasheet describes after power up so my code is finding the right locations, then I got busy on other things. Obviously these code examples are really experimental. According to SST you don't need to use the SDP here is my email with them. Is there any chance of getting this included in the flashbios source?


The hardware write protection (WP# and TBL# pins) is independent of the
software write protection (block locking register). The previous LPC
devices did not have the block locking registers. All 8 block locking
registers default to write locked (data=0x01) at power-up, they must be
unlocked (data 0x00) before the user can write to the array. These
registers are also reset to the write lock state after driving either
the RST# or INIT# pin to low. Thus, you need to modify your code to
write data 0x00 to each block locking register (total 8 write commands,
the SDP sequence is not required) after every power-down/power-up or
reset.
