like i said earlier..
1.6 .... m8_v1.6
1.6b .. m8plus_v1.6
I don't know. But it's working for me(using M8 Plus 1.6 on 1.6 version....No problems).

when giving people advice/instructions on how to do something, it's better to give a fool-proof version and not a crap shoot. not a lot of 'newbs' want to take that chance when it comes to doing things for the first time. let them experiment once they are more familiar with the system and know how to fix it if something goes wrong

store various bios files on the xbox (f:\bios\whateverbios.bin for example) and the program will flash it for you. pretty damn easy to use. when i had my 2.6 i would have different bios files made for different fan speeds (before i started using xbmc that is.. those were dark days ) and just flash a lower speed when watching a movie, or a higher speed when doing a lot of gaming.
i would only suggest that you get her up and running before you do it, just in case anything happens during the flashing process

actually, there's a hell of a lot of stuff to x3 live config..
and then there's the cool extras.. x3lcd, x3pro switch, x3 control panel
not that the 2.6 wasn't a good chip, it served it's purpose well for me. i just upgraded cuz i wanted the latest & greatest. on the plus side, they are currently working on a config live bios for x2 chips.. might just be a while till it's ready though

one last question i have is when i turn the chip off it is automatically gonna load the default xbox bios and dashboard so i can get on live right?

I got a xbox 1.6, with a 2.6 chip.
i have it on bank 2 runnin all my software (avalaunch and stuff) and wanted to reflash the chip because i had to change a setting in the bios. how do i go about reflashing the chip. if i put it on bank 1 the blue screen comes up , is it safe to flash it from here, or should i make a boot disk and flash it on bank 2....any ideas? I have the bios i used so im just gonna adjust it (simple change of which xbe to boot from).
or should i use somthing like evox to flash the chip?
Thanks in advance...that was a good tutorial, exactly what i did....

1.6B with a 2.6CE.
For some reason flashing from a CDRW appeared to work but would not. Very strange, it worked perfectly the first and put M8Plus1.6 on the 1st bank (before i realized the quirk). Then, when i would try to reflash to anything different (tried 4xflashbios to clean it and the 'proper' flash+M8Plus1.6) but it never changed. The flash protect was set correctly and it showed the yellow and green bar as if everything was ok. No errors, no flash. It was always as if it was unflashed from the first, working one.
Next i decide to attempt to flash from the Hard Drive via EvoX (that i could install without issue with M8Plus1.6, it was simply the loading of games/programs that wouldn't work). This works perfectly, without issue.
Everything is now working and loading without issue. Thus, if you have trouble with a CDRW and can get into the xbox via ftp: use the hard-drive.
Just wanted to share my experience and maybe save someone a night of annoyance...
