Would this apply to 1.6 consoles as well? Sorry if it's obvious, but just wanted to make sure. I'm pretty sure I have a 1.6 and not a 1.6b. Thanks.
The 1.6 works w/ the 3.00 and 3.01, but does not work w/ 3.03.
A 1.6b will only work w/ 3.03.
If you have a 1.6 then either chip (X3 or X3 CE) will be fine right out of the package.
It's the original X3 (purple) that needs to be reflashed for a 1.6b mobo.
Neither boots, sounds like you could have mixed up the chips when putting them back in. That or you loosened some pins when removing them. It doesn't mess anything up doing the flash n' switch, I had to do it for my 1.6b (before CE release).
