I had a friend install my X2.2Lite a while back, and he put two different BIOSes on it.

I wanted to change the boot order to start at XBMC, so I modified one of the BIOSes using XBTool. I put the switch to Bank2 (which I hadn't really used), and I flashed that one with my rebuilt BIOS to be safe. THe flash worked, and my box now boots into XBMC, however, I switched the chip back to Bank1, and that boots into XBMC! So I must've flashed both banks somehow.

Could this have something to do with the BIOS size? I flashed a 256k BIOS into Bank2, and I think the whole chip holds 1 meg. Should I have resized it to 512k? Thanks!

the chip always flashes from the beginning, no matter what the switch is set to.

Interesting...I'm done messing with it now since it does what I want, but how would I flash two different bioses? DO I have to patch them together or something?

yes. this can be done at the dos prompt very easily with this command :

assuming they are all 256 images :

copy /b bios1.bin+bios1.bin+bios2.bin+bios2.bin bios.bin

bios1.bin - 256 image of whatever bios
bios2.bin - "........"
bios.bin - the 1 MB output file

of course if they were both 512 images :

copy /b bios1.bin+bios2.bin bios.bin

and you get the point.....
