OK I got a v1.5 probably the late version as it looks a bit different and has a white 12 pin connector in the middle that I don't see on any guides at all...

I can get it to connect in the flash software and be recognised by the PC via USB. I click format and it sits there saying Format Started and does nothing else. I can select a radio button, I can write a bios, I can read a bios, if I try to Verify the bios it says "Error at 0x000000" If I install it it FRAGs (no bios probably right?)

I'm testing it on a v1.0 with a dead TSOP and the D0 grounded.
I've tried it with the USB connected or disconnected it still does nothing and FRAGs.
Should there be some lights on it to indicate it's working? As there aren't any coming on.
I fitted a pinheader adapter so it would go on a normal pinheader and tried hot swapping it and flashing it but it said "Flash is Not Writeable".

I've tried all this on my main PC and also on a Pentium 2 both XP Pro. All the dip switches are OFF, I've tried other banks and with switch 4 On or OFF it is the same.

Suggestions?

Cheers,

What's the Modchip / DVD Power harness for on page 5 of this guide http://www.mod-chip.....0-1.5_Lite.pdf anyone know? I don't have one and I'm now guessing I need it or is that just for v 1.5s or something? LOL.

OK it's fuxxored I'd say as I get near 0v on two of the normally 3.3v LPC pins so something has blown on the chip it seems to me so it doesn't get any juice when on the LPC sad.gif
