Okay, I'm not very familiar with Bios's and the whole thing. I have a TSOP mod, but i didn't install it and I'm pretty sure it has an Evox 2 bios flashed onto it.
1) Do you think it is worth upgrading to another bios?
2) If so what Bios do you recommend?
3) If i haven't Flashed a bios before, do you think i would be able to do it myself?

Thanks for your help.

1) Evox 2? Wow... yeah, I think there's value in updating a BIOS from 2003.

2) Xecuter's X2.4981.06

3) Depends on if the contacts needed to flash the TSOP are still soldered...

The X3 bios is only for the X3 chip, no execptions.

The only way to check if the points are still soldered would be to:

1) Open the case and see for yourself, or

2) Try and flash it...? unsure.gif

I see. and what changes can i expect from a newer bios?
And if i stuff it up, whats the worst that can happen?
And one last thing, i'm assuming flashing the Bios won't erase any data, is this correct?
Sorry for so many questions.

1) Support for larger (and even larger) hard drives, editable booting options (color changes, removing the flubber, etc.), better IGR, and increased compatibility with games and apps.

2) You'd have to find a way to reflash it properly if you mess it up (I recommend a good deal of research about TSOP flashing and what brand of TSOP chip you have, etc.)

3) No, not in your case.
