I recently installed v1.1 and have a black screen and red light on the eject button with the chip engaged. I read elsewhere in the site that this is due to the fact that the bios will not work with my version (1.6b). I am wondering if I now purchase the programmer will I be able to flash the chip and get it to work?

Hell No ! The USB programmer is worse than a spider !

Spiders do work to some extent in some cases but the USB programmer does not work at all !

Do not buy one !

remove the spider chip, and get another one (different brand alltogether)

As mentioned in numerous other threads, I followed HackDaBox's tut on soldering in the chip and it worked fine. That is about the only way I know of to make a spiderchip work properly on a 1.6.

As I just mentioned in the thread I started - my SpiderChip is working fine now in my 1.6b with the "wedge with LEGO pieces" method, after I flashed it with the right BIOS using another UNMODIFIED Xbox. My install even survived the 100km car trip back home - I was expecting that one of the wires would pop out of the vias from vibration, but they didn't.
