Ok, from the past 5 Xecuter2.1/2.2 Pro mod chips I have installed. I ALWAYS (this is 99% ALWAYS) get the no audio/video but the xbox doesn't frag (after installing and reassembly). What I hav noticed is that if you turn the XBOX off, and knock the xbox around a bit THEN turn it on it mainly always has the FLASHBios file come up, and after I flash the chip, it doesn't seem to have that problem at all after updating it.

I know my installs are fine, because I have done 5-10 in a row and they have ALL done the same thing, but a couple Xecuter2.2 Lite's I have installed have never given me this problem. Has ANYONE ran into this problem with the Xecuter2.1/2.2 Pro Mod Chips?

Oh, just to add, a person got a mod install by some other person and came to em w/ the same problem, and the installer told them they didn't flash the mod properly, low and behold it had the same problem as when I install them.

please, anyone reading this, dont knock the box around. disaster waiting to happen. would you intentionally knock your computer up to get a program to load right? HELL NO! the fact that you turned it off, makes the difference. the key here is to turn it off and on until you get it. somtimes for me, rebooting with the chip on and then with it off helps. or even turning it on with the eject button (with the modchip on) after it running without the chip on. don't know your box around... dry.gif

My old 486 had problems booting windows, I used to kick the front of the box, and it would proceed to finish booting. Yea, it would stop for 15-20 minutes (just loading), as soon as I kicked it, it worked..

So yes, personally, I would kick my computer if a program wouldnt run tongue.gif

Ubergeek, just post something quick that you know will get pinned...something along the lines of "f'n Cromwell FlashBIOS has f'n problems with motherf'n overheating, you a$$wipes! If it doesn't show video the f'n first time try allowing your f'n XBOX to cool off for 5 f'n minutes, motherf'ers!"

Whatever gets pinned has gotta be done "ubergeek" style... laugh.gif

For the record, I've only done about a half-dozen X2.2 installs, but flashing them could not have gone more smoothly. Power on Xbox, FlashBIOS comes up and tray ejects, insert UDF disc with 1024K BIOS.BIN, watch yellow erase bar, watch green write bar, Xbox powers off. I don't see what the problem is. ::shrug::

i feel ya on that. i think most of the time ppl have problems with burning and media and that just crap out mentally from there. lol. only done a few though, not 12. do you mod for $$$ or just just mess around with em that much to have done half a dozen? i've flashed and reflashed about a dozen times with flashbios, dont know if that counts. lol.

heh, im burning the media fine, and what you mean let it cool down, the solder points, or the xbox itself? I am doing this for $$$ and flashing the mod is fine, its just not the "f'n" first time it happens, it ALWAYS happens @ random times for the flashbios only!
