I did the ernie and bert (not the reloaded, the original) exploit since I had no intention of buying a modchip, and everything is terrific, save one thing... the cdrom. It resets the xbox when it is ejected.EvoX, Linux, xbmp, everything else works great, it'd just be nice to be able to opena nd close the drive without a reboot. I was told in another forum that I have to flash my bios, and that I'd need to solder some pins together on the top and bottom of the motherboard. Can someone confirm this is what I will have to do? I don't really want to got soldering stuff together if it still won't let me flash my bios.
