Sorry for the double post, I put this in the cheap/alternative modchips section
I will be forever indebted if someone could help me out here.
I have a version 1.1 xbox and I've installed the duox2gs white chip in it. I didn't use the pin headers because I was having a heck of a time desoldering the LPC. At first the chip wouldn't run at all and the xbox would boot like normal with everything connected. I shorted the BT pad as suggested by dynatron's tutorial who I bought the chip from. When I connected d0 to a ground on the board I would get a flashing ring and 3 reboots. When d0 was completely disconnected with modchip in the chip would flash but obviously wasn't doing anything. Finally I did both, I connected the d0 pad on the chip to the d0 and grounded them both to the motherboard. That worked, got me into Flashbios 3.03 and Cromwell on either bank.
Got the EvolutionX M8plus Bios from xbins, used EVTools to change the filesize from 256 to 512 and didn't change any other settings, renamed to bios.bin.
Burned the .bin file along with a 300 mb dummy.txt file that I created using Nero 7.0 and the teamexecuter guide.
Used Bank 1 (Flashbios 3.0.3) to try and flash to the evox bios and I got this error:
programming failed: Program failed for byte at +0x0; wrote 0x09, read 0xFF
The yellow line never moved and I turned off the box after about 10 minutes.
Now Bank 1 is corrupted and I am hoping I can use cromwell to flash either of the banks, I would like to flash over bank 1 so that I don't accidentally ruin both banks, is this possible? I read that I need the Eurasia disc, I'm wondering if the Evox m8+ bios did it to me or what is going on, this is actually the second time that this has happened to me using this chip the duox2gs so I must be doing something wrong.
Any help the community can give would be awesome, I'm not going to do anything until I am certain I know what is going on with it because I don't want to mess it up.
Thanks for looking
