Aladdins from Deal Extreme aren't pre-flashed.
You have to flash BIOS on another chip, or use hotflash method.
Well that would explain a lot! Someone left a review on one of them saying that it does come flashed:
-You have to updrage the bios flashed in this modchip ( it comes with xevo, and you should upgrade to xecuter2 bios )
It doesn't say that it's flashed anywhere in the product description, so after what you said, I'm going to assume that it isn't flashed. I looked over my job and everything looks properly soldered.
I have a chip installed by pinheader on another Xbox --- once that Xbox is booted w/ it's chip, the d0 doesn't have to be connected to the Aladdin to do a hotswap flash, right?
I appreciate your help.
