so I have chipped around 160 xboxs, but it has been a few years. well a month ago my x2 chip just stopped working and while trying to trouble shoot it it burnt the traces of the switch card, and finally decided to flash it instead, luckily I keep a copy of all epproms of every xbox I work on, so It was no biggy to make a retail hdd for it. So I flashed it, only took me like 8min start to finish, which was way easier that the tutorials make it sound. now the only question I have is it ok to leave it in "writable mode", or should I remove the solder?
given no tut says to remove the solder that I have read, and Is nice to have just in "writable mode" to freely change the bios whenever, but will it be harmful or make it more likely to get corrupted? just lookin to the people that would know. thanx
