Flashed Cromwell. How To Go Back?
Posted 13 December 2009 - 01:05 PM
Not cool at all. Cannot get into xbmc. Cannot boot from anything but my dvd drive. During bootup there are greyed out images of two hdds and a dvd drive and some sort of chip. Only the dvd drive can be selected... Very rudimentary.
I'm having problems booting into linux (dvd drive problems). But that's another story.
What I want to know is how to flash my bios with the original bios.bin (which I have a back up of) once I get linux to boot? I dont have a usb keyboard. I also got raincoat 10 from their sourceforge site.
I have a ST chip. Someone help me out here with this... I need the idiot's guide. I'm SCARED!

again. What you need to get is something called the eurasia flash disc. I think it is the only thing that can save you now without buying a chip. Google should help you find it. Burn it to a CD-RW very slow.
I am a little fuzzy as to whether the disc booted or not, I can't remember. If it doesn't boot, then you will need to try option 2.
You can extract the eurasia flash disc ISO and put those files on your xbox HD (on the root of E Drive) so when your cromwell starts up you can select the FATX icon and boot eurasia.
Hope this helps

You guys gave me the idea that I need to do a frugal install to my hdd and then boot from there. I didn't use the eurasia flash disk that you suggested. I used xdsl because it was at hand. Once booted into the gui I used raincoat from the command line to reflash the TSOP with the original bios.bin file.
Its all up and at it again. Next week I'll flash my 1.0 with ST TSOP again. This time hopefully with something that'll enhance my xbox/xbmc experience rather than almost brick my box!
