Guys, i have a problem.
i accidently flashed a 1.5 tsop with the 1.6 m8 bios..
everthing works ok.. Well,
I can boot to evox but i can`t run any games, apps it freezes after the loading screen
i only can run the slayers installer cd.
i even can`t play origininals.
So i wanted to reflash the tsop with 1.5 bios with the slayers cd but it gives the Manufacturer ID but then it saids flash not writable !!
i`m sure thatt its write enabled. (re-checked solder points)
is it not possible to downgrade or reflash after 1.6 m8 bios?

i wouldnt know of any way because if you cant flash the bios
have you tried any other bios flashing utilities?

You might have a winbond tsop, which can't be flashed by evolutionX. What util did you flash it with originally?

If I were in the same boat I'd fit a mod and leave it there. Treat this machine as though it had a bad flash and was FRAG. Mod it and leave it, or 29-wire it and recover it.
There is ONE other possibility though. I believe the 007 save with raincoat can be booted by other means than just 007:AUF, like launching the .xbe from within EvolutionX, XMBC, Avalaunch or whatever. I have't managed this myself, but then again I haven't really tried that hard. If you can get this to fire up, you can reflash. As long as Slayer's (or whatever EvolutionX install CD you prefer) boots you'll be able to FTP the save across and take it from there.

Wow Exobex, you updated the program and you can't get it running from EvolutionX!?! I can confirm it does work, but obviously it has to be run from the correct UDATA folder.

Cant the line of code for the winbond chip be manually added to slayers evox.ini file then recompiled and reburned?

No, winbond chips require a different method of erasing (Chip erase, not block erase [or is that the other way round?!?]) which evolutionx simply can't do. By adding a winbond flash ID to your evox.ini, you risk breaking your xbox.
