Swith banks and re flash btw M8+ is designed for 1.6 XBOX's not a 1.0 that could be your problem.

no, it won't fix both banks.
you could try creating a 1024 image - 512 of flashbios and 512 of 4983.06 then flash bank 2 and it might fix bank 1, but don't hold me to it.

click on Scaramang's guides in this link :
then go to chapter 3 - flashing the bios
create a 512 image of 4983.06 and save it as bios.bin **
add bios.bin + 100 mb dummy file to a cd-r / rw
switch your chip to bank 2, turn flash protect off
insert the cd when prompted, and it should flash
** if you want to try to reflash bank 1 with flashbios, then download flashbios and make a 1 mb image using that tutorial with flashbios in slots 1 & 2, and 4983.06 is slots 3 & 4. not guaranteeing this will work though.

i.e. you will flash the first 512k (bank1) first and then on to bank2 after.
The real issue was that you only used a 256k bios file.
the M8+ will work on a v1.0 it's just the M8+_16 that only works on a 1.6.
What you need to do is make a 512k bios file and burn that to DVD/CD with the dummy file and then flash the chip with that. It will overwrite the first 256k (the bad flash you put on already) and then then second 256k and not any more.
You will then have M8+ on bank 1 and the flashbios on bank 2.
Edit: didn't mean to contradict or anything KeyMastur, must have been typing at the same time.

As I tried explain (badly) before the chip will ALWAYS flash from bank 1 so a 512k image wiil be flashed to bank 1 and a 1Mb image will be flashed to 1 + 2.
There is no way to flash just bank 2 with the flashbios.

I got a x2.6 for my 1.1 xbox and flashed bank1 with a 256k 4983 so on power up on bank 1, it frags. Bank 2 gives me flashbios so as i understand this, if i go to bank2 and flash with a 512k 4983 it will overwrite the bad 256 and leave bank 2 as is, with flashbios still on it. If this is the case the sweet stuff is going to happen tonight. Please someone stop me if this is not going to be the case.....
Thanks to all if it works
