Addition to my previous post,
Whilst downloading a skin avalaunch froze so i turned off the xbox, now I get instant red flashing led and no video output either through advanced or standard av cable.
I have read other threads in this forum and i dont want to upset anyone in the avalaunch team, what i saw of avalaunch was awesome and big respect goes out but something it did has definately fried my xbox.
I have (had) a Pal v1.3 with a wire-installed xbit (Evox M6 ef bios).
I have done the following to try and fix it
I tried reflashing my bios, doesn't work, Instant flash red no video.
I disconnected the wires to the xbit usb board, as expected on off three times then red/green flashing (that would indicate to me that it isn't a corrupt bios).
I have dismantled the xbox and removed the chip completely, doesn't work, i still get instant flash red no video.
I know that there is no code in avalaunch that flashes bios (the tsop isnt write enabled anyway) but could it be possible that the EEPROM has been corrupted, i know that avalaunch changes that for video settings, could it be flashing red because it cant find any video/region settings or its screwed?
Does ANYONE know if this can be repaired (i.e. some clever electrical techy who can flash the eeprom), if not then anyone in the uk with a f*****g xbox motherboard for sale would be useful.
Sorry to sound like i am accusing here but i am unbelievably f***d off, this is a pretty near brand new xbox, i only tried avalaunch out because i saw the new launch info on xbox-scene and was impressed by the website, i have never had any grief with evox and i have successfully modded about 4 xboxes (i know thats no big whoop but i aint just some stupid annoying noob who doesn't know what they are doing).
Any help/advice would be really cool.
