Still looking for a good answer here - I know it's possible to reflash a good tsop with chameleon, just reboot to tsop in evox and flash ( a15 connected, and both jumpers grounded) - But what about a bad tsop, or even a stock one - what is the proceedure for gaining access to the tsop after booting to the lpc with this chip?
Please don't respond with "I guess" or "I think", There's been a ton of that here, and We need a good answer. I'd rather hear from team Xodus the real proceedure or "stick a fork in it"...

I wasn't flaming you guys - I just wanted to know if it was possible and I was missing something ( since it's inferred that it is possible in the manual, but no proceedure is given). This has been a recurring question on this forum, and it's never been answered by you until now. Now we know the answer, until you say otherwise, it's not possible to fix a fried tsop ( or flash a stock one) with a chameleon.
Sticking a fork in it...

Hi , i have the same problem , fried tsop with D6 tsop bios , no av / cd won't eject . So i bought a chameleon, now I'm trying to re-flash the tsop , but how... it's on a 1.3 , it always states it's write protected. Anyone knows something about the new tsop bios is coming out soon ??? I noticed a lot of guys are waiting for this.

It depends just how bad your tssop is ..
The recent release of Evo-X dash contains a unique bios file for accesing the tssop through LPC .. this file also automaticaly makes use of the a15 line on the Chameleon ..
However in order for this bios to work your tssop must have a partialy valid bios, if for example you flashed a v1.0 bios into a v1.2 machine .. this bios will more than likely not work. If halfway through a flash of your tssop you have a power failure .. there is a good chance this bios can fix that ..
The current limitations are technical, the only other way to repair a damaged bios is by using a homebrew 29 wire .. this method should fix any bad flash to tssop ..
But I guess most people want the tssop flash for other reasons

TEAM XODUS , you rae saying , that i have to boot my xbox , chameleon enabled , choose flash bios in evox dashboard , and choose d6 tsop bios , keeping chameleon still enabled .
And it will re-flash my tsop ? Because when i choose flash bios with my chameleon enabled , i get the chip id is AMD.... , and my tsop chip is a Winbond - W49F020 , so i don't accidently flash the chameleon ...
Can you clear this up for me ?
Because i flashed the tsop the first time with the d6 tsop bios , and it fucked it all up... so i am not to picky on this d6 tsop bios anymore...

bump this one , really need help XODUS team

the correct way to use the "d6 tsop bios" is by flashing one of your chameleon banks with it .. then changing to that bank ( preferably by hard switch .. so that you boot using that bank ) if everythign is set up correct and and there is enough correct data in your tssop your xbox should boot into evo-x dash as normal .. when u go to flash you should now get the Winbond - W49F020 .. you now choose the bios u want to put into the tssop and flash it .. making sure that the bios will work !!!!
THERE IS VERY LITTLE REASON TO PLAY WITH YOUR TSSOP BIOS ... As many have already experianced it is very easy to damage the tssop image and get "locked out" .. PLEASE DO NOT USE THIS UNLESS YOU KNOW WHAT U ARE DOING !!
