Im trying to flash my softmodded xbox v1.4 onboard winbond bios in order to try save my coma console problem. I know the soldering points and they are taken care of with kind of macgyver trick. I have evolutionx and xbmc on my box. I transferred evox m8+ bios and tried to flash but it says it is not writeable. Somewhere i read that it cant do it, but i cant find any instructions how to do the flash without original games and gamesaves. So how is it done?

Hi

I cannot remember where i read it, but with a winbound TSOP you need to flash the BIOS onto it through TELNET. I'll have a look to see if i can find it for you!


EDIT: Here you go, its a winbon flashing Tut!! http://forums.xbox-s...howtopic=197389

EDIT2: just remembered you need a softmod exploit with raincoat not a normal one!!

Install the save game on your system, and then browse to it using your dashboard's file manager.

(If you're not sure where it is, load up a save game manager and look for it there. Most dashboards (other then the MS Dash of course) will show you a string of letters and numbers. Go to E:\UDATA and look for a matching foldername within that).

Once you've found it, there should be one or more XBE files in there. Try selecting each, one of them should start the flashing app.

Thanks dudes! Eurasia souns easyer way, so i think i try it. I have two questions about it:
If i understood it correctly, the flash program will show a menu where choises are the ones in the raincoat.cfg?

My bios chip is winbond w49F020T-90B, so i will choice this:

flash = 0xda8c,"Winbond W49F020",0x40000; ? and can delete the other lines in the file?

It seems obvious but must ask anyway..
