Fixing A Tsop With Duox2 Gs?
Posted 23 August 2010 - 05:17 AM
So I TSOP'd my Xbox a couple of months ago, and all was going well until I decided I wanted to try to get my Xbox to run without the DVD drive. So I prepared a BIOS to be flashed, booted into EvolutionX, began flashing, but then while flashing the power cord literally fell out of my power strip! (It's mounted behind my desk and it's a very very crappy power strip)
Anyway, I bought a modchip in order to fix it. DealExtreme had the DuoX2 GS for $13.37, and I could NOT pass up a price like that. So I have it installed in the machine. It has Cromwell 2.40 on one bank, and some version of X2 on the other bank. Cromwell works fine, I can boot off Linux machines, unlock the HDD, whatever. However, when I try to boot using X2 it may play the flubber animation, but during the animation it will randomly freeze. Video AND audio. I looked this up and thought I nailed it down to the softmod. So I unlocked my drive (unable to boot into any dashboard or games due to the bad TSOP / freezing modchip), restored the backup of the original dashboard, no luck.
A short summary: Softmodded, did a successful TSOP, did a bad TSOP, cannot boot games/homebrew, put in a DuoX2 GS, only Cromwell works, need to fix the TSOP.
Any help would be greatly appreciated

the doux2 if you could get the X2 bios or what ever to boot Slayers boot disk and maybe you can update the bios on that to a better one. If you cant do that get an You can use cromwell I think to load an eruasia flash disk to flash the bios. I am tired so if this doesnt sound right I am sorry

Tried all three banks, no dice. I'm guessing it's hosed, but would it be possible to start the Xbox with Cromwell, remove the chip, boot Eurasia, and then do a flash? Would it error out or would it flash the TSOP?
That's how I have fixed bricked xboxes, but you mileage may vary... Start in cromwell, unplug your modchip and use raincoat flasher (mini-linux I think).
I have an X2 with "flashbios" on bank 2, and an x2 bios on bank one. Saves time and trouble in reflashing. Been a long time since I un-bricked a box though.
