I have heard you can flash the onboard BIOS with Messiah-X installed, but I cant find which wires that should be cuted to disable the chip while flashing, do anyone know?

And one more thing, if something goes wrong while flashing, can I just install the Messiah-X chip again and then my xbox boots up normaly from the chip, with other words, do Messiah-X fully replace the onboard BIOS?

Thats quite an interesting question i wouldn't mind knowing... If the x-box's flash chip is dead/broken for any reason, would installing an openXbox or other type of mod get over the fact it wasn't there/working properly?? they do state that "the chip bypasses the on-board bios"....?????
