anybody know whats causing this? I'm trying to switch over to ybox and i don't want to mess up my current alignment since the matrix is so sensitive to alignment... and besides i wouldn't like having to take out and flash via programmer every time i want to flash... anybody else have this problem? I've tried about 3 different bios's.

Is this after you have flashed it a few times prior? The reason I say that is because the other day, I was just flashing my Matrix through evox just for the crack, simply because I could, trying out various different bios'.
After about 5 or 6 flashes I found that it would no longer flash through evox. The alarm bells began to ring and I thought I'd be stuck with a crap blue mod version that I had tried which was not to my liking in terms of features. Now when I tried to flash it said Device ID xx and Manufaturer ID xx, the x's indicate numbers that I can't remember.
I had to rip my beautiful install apart, to try and reflash it. It flashed ok, so the heart returned to normal speed, and the Matrix went back in. I booted up and was once again allowed to flash via evox.
So in summary, I have no idea why I was suddenly not allowed to flash through evox, but I can now, so thats sweet. I just wondered if my problem may have been similar to yours?
Good Luck, TeMpTeD

well I wish that was the although I've never been able to flash through EvoX... So I'm not sure what the real problem was but now that i've got ybox setup hopefully i won't have to flash all the time anymore. But I would still like to flash from EvoX. and yes I did get the same errors you did. the error read:
Manufactures ID bf Device ID 61
!! Unknown Flash Type !!

add this to the evox.ini
Flash = 0xbf61,"SST - 49LF020",0x40000

the ini file must be updated...
it seems that when installing the new dash the ini wont get updated
