Several years ago (maybe 2or3) my friend installed the chameleon chip in my XBox and loaded a cromwell bios. Now the newer games don't play in my machine and he moved half way around the world.

I have no clue what to install or how to do it to get a newer bios. I've read almost every posting on this site and I'm still lost.

Can anyone help, Please?????????????

As far as I know, the Cromwell BIOS will not allow you to play backup copies of your games, so I would image that you are running some other BIOS, be it a version of the X2 or a EvoX BIOS.

If you happen to be running Evolution X (make sure it's the latest version - 3935) then you'll need to read the manual from the Team Xodus website to reflash your Chameleon with a new BIOS. The manual is located here : Chameleon User's Manual v1.3. If not, then you can either install Evolution X as an alternative dashboard to help you in this matter, or you can look for a programmer and use the software from the Team Xodus website to reflash it that way.

You can also create another BIOS CD - you should have a bank on your chameleon with Cromwell on it still.

Read the manual for the DIP settings.

When I had my Chameleon I never had any joy with flashing from Evox....

Stick with the 256k BIOSes for now - although the Chameleon can be configured to 2 x 512k, it's best to leave as is.

Personally, the X2 4983 BIOS works great with the Chameleon...
