I was originally thinking of getting the pro but then I learned about on board flashes and many problems that people are having with the pros. I think since I'm still a noob I should get the Lite. Can anyone recomend one over the other? I know they are basically the same chip but which is easier to install w/ less headaches(flashing wise)? Thanks for any help.

They are both going to flash the same way. The only differences in this hardware revision are:
1) Lite allows to switch between 2 BIOS banks, Pro allows you to switch between up to 4.
2) If the Lite has a bad flash, you'll have to remove the chip and repogram it using the X2 Lite programmer or perform a hot swap - both of which require you to open your Xbox. Conversely, the Pro has an external adapter so you can reflash the chip without opening the Xbox.

I understood what both had as options. I'm more or less asking if there have been many problems flashing with pros vs the lites. I have heard many dislike the pros and say they aren't flashing correctly. But thanks for rehashing my memory with the mod chip features. hehe

No offence but get a lite... If you use flashx you should never encounter a bad flash...

Flashx...I know you can flash each bank and shouldn't have a problem. But I was wondering how can I use flashx on the intial flash? I don't want to mess up on that one and on the new 2.2s the Cromwell biosflash only will use a bin file, not load another cd.

i got an x2lite programmer and have been very pleased with results when using x2cable combined with x2liteflasher (a graphical interface)

As I already said, they flash the same way - using Xecuter's FlashBIOS. They can also use hardware flashers, which work approximately the same.
