1 You flashed a 256k bios instead of a 512K
2 Your bios is not a 1.6 bios even though you think it is (incorrectly named or something)
3 The chip is Clone as these hate the new X2 bios. even some of the genuine ones have issues sometimes when using the new X2 bios.

2. see #1 never had to lfash one before.
3. got it from apple so i know their genuine plus ive flashed a bunch of these with x2 5035.
wheni switch banks i get regular start without video/audio and after a lil it goes to solid red. apple said hes used the flashbios on cromwell edition n theyve workd on the 2nd bank. any other ideas. i got one more chip but if it dont work im screwed.

The best suggestion I have is don't flash the one you have left with the same bios use M8+.16.
If you don't believe this bios gives trouble when flashing the whites then have a look in the Cheapmod section. this problem comes up multiple times a week
The ordinary flashbios on bank 1 does boot blank for sometimes 20 reboots on certain 1.6 boxes and is a known glitch.
By the way this is nothing to do with Pin 4 on the LPC the problem is definetely the flash.

You can use this mathod to hotswap and flash the bad ones as well.

also downloaded this M8plus_16.bin
btw when it doesnt boot on bank 1 is it ok that the eject led turns red?
