Ugh. alright i got the chip installed corrctly , http flashed the chip with a 256k bios now it frags, i switched the switch on the chip which i was told it is to turn it on and off but i think it was a bank switch becouse now it loads to the cromwell bios again, my question is what size/ or bios should use with this chip befor i flash it again?

1. Why would anyone buy such a lame product (made by the same idiots who made the spider chip).
2. Why didn't you research what size BIOS file to use BEFORE you tried to flash it?
3. What programmer?
HyperX is nothing but a rip off (just like it's predecessor).
Next time use a 1MB BIOS (like it says on their website).

Hyper X REFLASH
To re-flash DO NOT FLASH THE SECOND BIOS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Boot your xbox with onboard chip switch in the opposite position from the original flash, you should see the flash screen. Just move the switch back to the original position WITHOUT TURNING THE XBOX OFF and re-flash the chip. You can use this technique if you just want to change your bios as well. This chip is not as versatile as the Xecuter line or the Xenium and I did have to use a longer screw than provided on both installs and on one install I had to use a longer screw and a thinner washer but the chips seems stable once installed and it is cheap! I modded two boxes just to use XBMC and for that it was a bargain.
