"so you dont need to read my post + edits, what I think now from my search is if you have a aladin 64 or aladin + you should be able to power on by holding the power button down till the xbox led is red and then you can flash it. if that wont let you boot the hexen disk then probably no help at all."
here is what my post looked like 1st of all:
Im pretty sure my aladin booted hexen for me to flash it.
having said that It was not new, could have been previously flashed and has a spot to solder a tsop on to it. I dont know wether the tsop would be flashed from the chip (seems to be the more logical explanation because if your de soldering your tsop you must have messed it up) Or if the tsop can be solderd on to it to provide a 1st boot from the lpc.
this is what mine looks like at any rate.
I think its an aladin advance+
I should experiment with it one day but I dont think i will bother any time soon.
Decided to do some research to see what the tsop flash pad was for, but all i found was this. Image, Do you need to power on in a special way like this picture says?This post has been edited by shambles1980: Jan 13 2012, 05:51 PM
