Ok what you need to do is this.
Get 2 peices of wire. solder them BOTH to ground.
Solder one to point A18.
Solder the other to point A19.
Then plug everything back in and boot (Remember you need to be able to cut BOTH wires later, so please make sure you have enough slack in them to be able to see them to cut!!)
The XBox will now boot.
Use you favourite method to start the flashing process with a 1 MB Bios file.
After the bios is detected and you get the press (Button) or Y or whatever (Depending on the flashing method) Cut BOTH wires. Then press the appropriate button to start the flashing process.
Now test the reflash. It should work.
Then remove the wires from the board.
1 Xbox saved from the brink of doom

Just flashed a 256k Bios into my ver 1.1 xbox. Frag land. Now can I see a picture of these points? And I hope I can boot my slayers bios flasher cd after this. Thanks.

As much as I would like to say that this worked, it did not with my ver 1.1 xbox with a 256k bios in it's 1mb chip. It blinks green twice then goes to Frag. Any other suggestion? I have not the means to get a mod chip of any sort so hopefully I can get this worked out.

It also assumes the correct Bios file was used.
1: The Flashing process writes the Bootloader last, as in after the Bios file has completed programming, so if you get an error partway through there is a good chance that the bootloader has not been written, which means the TSOP is toast unless you can get it flashed off board.
2: If you flash a 1.0 Box with a 1.1 version specific (or vice-versa) it'll never boot in a million years, no matter what you do, so please be careful of this.
After conversing with lilpee on MSN Messenger this was his problem. 1.0 Xbox flashed with EvoX 3.6 for the 1.1. Sadly it's an off-board flash or LPC / Matrix trick to recover the TSOP in his situation.
