If you are flash Xellous first it only uses the first 50 blocks so that will be fine. When you flash the full FreeBOOT.bin to your box if you flash it with USB/LPT you have to remap the blocks, if you flash it using Xellous it will automatically remap the bad block.
So if you didn't remap and flash it thru LPT / USB the box would do unpredictable things.
It should be said that Xellous flash can be a bit buggy, so I wouldn't rely 100% on Xellous to remap bad blocks correctly. The 100% foolproof method would still be to remap them manually using NandPro.
Anyways, thnx for the great tutorial boxxdr, I already wired 4 consoles this way & zero problems. However, it is a bit more time consuming than the diode method & I definitely wouldn't recommend it to soldering noobs...
Btw, is there a way to get the cpu key with the aud_clamp connected? By this I mean the first time you boot into Xell/Xellous, before hacking & flashing the smc? I always connect to ROL before the first boot, get the cpu key, then move that wire to aud_clamp later, when I already flashed the freeboot w/ modded smc. It won't boot at all if i don't do this, i think you get a standard E79.This post has been edited by Blargharg: Sep 28 2010, 02:58 PM
