Use a PLCC extractor or a paper clip straightened slightly to just lever the chip from the socket at the corner.

If you are going to hotswap the aladdin chip there is a guide here http://forums.xbox-s...howtopic=390508
This explains the hotswap to flash procedure in detail. Once you have a chip with a hacked bios on it in the machine you can install and format the HDD in the machine.
To do this I would get hold of a copy of Slayers 2.6 or AID 3. Both of these autoinstallers will prepare and install all the dash files etc with the new HDD already in the Xbox.

You can simply swap over the flashrom then.
If the flashrom you have has flash bios on it then you need to flash that using a bios disc
All you need is a 256k hacked bios suitable for your version of Xbox. Burn this onto a disc make sure the bios file is named as BIOS.BIN and burned as a data disc with an extra dummy file name it aabbcc.dat (around 100 mb)

No you can simply flash the bios first. Anything else to do after can be done with an autoinstaller or via ftp
It will be fine. Just make sure you use a 256k bios. The one you listed will be fine.
the 06 is for if you want a HDD with a large F partition and the .67 is for setting up the HDD with an F +G partition

Chancer,

Thank ypu again for all your help... I flashed via network and everything went well.. Used the .06 for the large F drive... after that I used Evox New HD disk... Got the hdd formatted and a dashboard installed. I then used Slayer and added all the apps and xbmc to it... My god daughter will be happy again... had this thing for over a month....
