Hi all, I just got an xbox and cracked it open. It's got a focus video chip making it either a 1.4 or a 1.5 therefore making it TSOP-able. Mu friend didn't have his meter with him so we couldn't check the voltage on the LPC to see wether it was a 1.4 or a 1.5. There's also further bad news; It's got a Winbond chip.

We've assassinated the write points on the motherboard for the chip but what has to be done to flash the TSOP?

Its a winbond so it's not normally flashable with the usual tools (EvoX). I've did a bit reading and found there is a method called raincoat 0.7? It looks horrible to do. The HeXEn Disk has a Winbond section right? Would that do it without bricking the TSOP? That's got a nice GUI.

So how do I flash the Winbond TSOP of a 1.4/1.5 software wise. I have a softmod and everything in place. All I'm asking is how to flash the stupid Winbond TSOP.

Any help would be appreciated.
Many Thanks, Myhew. biggrin.gif

HeXEn will sort it for you.

Alternatively, any of the Raincoat flashers will work, but (as you say) they require a bit more work.

From memory, if it's a Winbond it will be a 1.4. It's highly unlikely that you have a 1.5 - there are very few of them around.

So what BIOS would you recommend?

iND, X2 or Evo M8+? I'm going to choose a F+G bios anyways as i plan to upgrade from the little 8gb hard disk the thing shipped with. Also with it being a 1.4 / 1.5 isnt there a minimum BIOS it can support?

Evox M8+ or ind-BIOS.5003, because both support on-disk partition tables. That means you can have any of the allowed hard drive configurations (all F, 137F, 50:50, or any other split you like) without having to reflash - you just have to format the F/G partitions with XBPartitioner 1.1 and the BIOS reads the partition table from the disk.

Sorry to double post but does anyone have anyone have a link to the bridge points for a winbond on a 1.4 or 1.5 diagrams? Every link Ive found is either dead or ultra low-res cached crud from Google.

Cheers, Myhew
