Ok, I'll start at the beginning...I have a 1.6b Xbox. Following a bad experience with xbmp, it is stuck in PAL. I installed a SpiderChip 1.1 to fix it...the website claimed that it was compatible with 1.6B. However, I have learned from reading on the forums that in fact the modified Cromwell BIOS does not boot with 1.6B--I am getting the dreaded red eject button and blank screen, which apparently means that the installation was successful but the BIOS couldn't load?

I am wondering...I read in a post that it might be possible for a 1.6B box to boot? If tried thousands of times? Is this true? If I spend an hour turning my Xbox on and off, is there any chance of a boot? Thanks for the help.

Normally less than 50 boots is required for flashbios to work. If you have tried hundreds of times than it seems doubtfull. Install the chips in a freinds older xbox and flash it with Evox M8 PLus V1.6 and then put it back in yours already flashed and ready to go !

Flash it using my HackDaBox reflash Cd !

I haven't tried that many times yet. I'll probably give it a shot in a few hours. Unfortunately I don't have any friends who can let me flash it. Guess I'm SOL, eh?

Thanks for the quick response btw. Although I cannot act on it, your advice is much appreciated.

Or you need to make some new friends... tongue.gif

You could always check your local second-hand game store for used XBoxes, older models which will boot Cromwell.
