i think this is what i dident do and this box has all them specks focus chip and stuff. if im wrong please let me know.

That is for mod chips, to give them the power

well if it is hozed your only option is a 29 wire mod or sell it off and cut your losses. I'd buy it if you were going to sell it. Or I have a 29 wire mod I've been dieing to test out if you want me to try to fix it I can.

If your not able to still boot using gamesave then, you are going to have to reboot. Otherwise before trying to deal with 29-wire mod, first unsolder or pick off conductive material and re-bridge the points (solder or conductive) and try again. Make sure you are using the right M7 256 bios as well. I'm not saying desoldering or picking off the material is the answer but, I have found that to work sometimes before spending thte time on the 29 wire trick.
What were you using to flash with and what bios? Were you soldering or using conductive material?

used raincoat to flash conductive pen to solder points
evox m7 the bios
removing those solder points aint guna help it is frgged now after that error msg
i did try to write again before i turned it off and raincoat returned unknown device now when it knew what it was before

sounds like the pen's line broke or gave up at end of first flash.....
(hence it said unknown device on 2nd attempt)
not enough conductive ink or didn't dry properly in time for flashing
what a bitch of a thing to happen - mod-chip for a quick fix
or a 29 wire mod to revive ya hosed tsop
sorry to hear that - I was thinking of trying the conductive pen method but I think I stick to my soldering iron
best of luck

I don't know why anyone uses a conductive pen, when conductive grease
is so much safer and easier to use! Silver conductive grease makes a much better connection then the pen.
I keep a syringe of this at work, and if anyone ever wants their TSOP flashed I can do it in 5 minutes without my soldering iron! I've never had a connection problem with it yet.

The conductive grease also works well for closing the bridges on Athlon CPU's.

that would explain the problem then it broke half way bit sad i say this is xbox number 35 i've done with the pen and this is the first to stuff up it is the first 1.5 ive done so far so im now scared to do another ;-[

while i was there i was able to do a backup of the orig bios but i looked and couldent find where it put it anybody know what dir it gets put into it was not in the raincoat dir it backup thats why i flashed caus all seemed ok
