i have a duox2 flashbios/cromwell version on a 1.6 xbox...i got the chip 4 days ago and i still am having no luck flashing it...i flashed the flashbios and now when i turn the chip on bank 1 the xbox flashes red and green..but when i switch it to cromwell bank 0 side it comes on and asks me to insert a cd and press button A...so i downloaded Eurasia Generic Pro Flash Disc 1.2 and put it on a dvd-r and put it in the xbox and pressed A and it does nothing... i am realy lost and dont know what to do anymore..

I had a DuoX2 or DuoX2 Lite that failed during the flashing process.

You're not gonna like my answer, but in order for me to get the chip back up and running, I had to hotswap the chip with another DuoX2 modded Xbox I had.

keep trying, and if it refuses to flash, then you need to hotswap duox's, or get a new chip like 00g said

This will work for you

You need a hacked bios I would suggest you use M8plus_16.bin
as this bios is 256k, the bios will be too small for your modchip
as the bios for your modchip has to be 512k in size

so download evtool from here
http://www.xbox-scen...s.php?page=bios
install it on you PC, and open evtool.exe
in the bottom left of the screen click open and select the M8plus_16.bin bios
wait for it to open
to the left of the open button is a file size option
click 512k
now click save as and put the file name as bios (Case Sensitive)
check the file size and make sure that it is 512k when saved

Now you have the bios needed

get Eurasia Generic Pro Flash Disc 1.3 from here,

http://www.xbox-scen....php?page=linux

The zip file includes eurasia_pro_generic_flash_disc_1_2.iso, burn the iso using nero, by

selecting file then open from the menu and then selecting the above iso
make sure you tick the box to finalize disc before burning.

open the folder bios_disc and put the bios.bin you created into this folder

Now open nero again and create a DVD iso disc
copy the four files from bios_disc folder to the dvd you are creating, not the folder
so you should have a disc with just the following files:

bios.txt
raincoat.cfg
dummy 50mb
bios.bin


switch your chip to bank 0 and boot to the cromwell bios screen, place the first disc in

that you burned and push the A button on the controller this will now load, when requested

and the xbox dvd drive opens insert the second disc in, this will flash your new hacked bios

to the chip.

do not turn off the xbox manually during this process as you may damage your modchip
allow the xbox to turn itself off.

when the xbox turns itself off the bios has been flashed
now turn the xbox back on

and your finished.

Good Luck biggrin.gif
