i got the modchip the other day, installed it. and could get to flashbios, tried to flash the bios, but nothing happens. it shut off the first time, and when i turned it back on, it shut right off without fragging. every other bank i tried to flash the bios on, it would start, and freeze halfway through the second pass. is it anyway possible to reset the chip and get back to being able to flash the bios without having to buy a new chip???? someone help me.
btw, i was trying to flash the bios via cd.

What chip do you have, X3 or X2.6? If you have an X3 it has a backup bank with Flashbios that can be accessed by pressing Eject and Power at the same time. If you have a 2.6 you're pretty much limited to either a programmer or hotswap...

i have an x3 and i tried that already, and i tried to flash that too. but it does the same thing now. what do you mean by a hotswap??

The backup bank cannot be flashed over, so it's still there to be used. The only way to flash your backup bank with something else is in X3CL. I suggest you flash via network, its's easier.

i cant do that with my computer, so in order to do that with another computer, should i just bring the bios with me to my friends house on a disk and do it that way?

Yea, you can do that or jus DL it from xbins on his PC and connect a crossover cable from your xbox to his PC or if he has a network connect the xbox to the network. Easy stuff...

what is the difference between a crossover cable and a regular ethernet cable? and what if i cant get to flashbios, would i still be able to do it?

A crossover cable is used to connect one thing str8 to another without having a hub. Ex: Xbox to Xbox, PC to Xbox. A normal ethernet cable is used for normal networking, to connect a PC or Xbox to a hub (network). And like I said before your bankup bank cannot be flashed over, unless it is done in X3CL. You should sill have Flashbios on it...
