A Xbox v1.7 doesn't exist...
It's just a v1.6b with filled via's (the holes on the mobo).
It should be possible to flash the chip with 1.6b bios once it is installed in the xbox. You're xbox will not burn or anything like that.
PS : Topic was posted in wrong place. This place is normally for Xbox 360
But I'm sure a mod will move it for you...This post has been edited by Avenger 2.0: Jul 16 2005, 02:12 PM
