  1. Had a similar prob trying to get in to a PC BIOS setup and could not use a USB key board and had to use a PS2 style as no USB drivers loaded until the OS kicks in. You could try a wired USB and not wireless Cheers SS Dave Those who can hard-mod, Those who can’t soft-mod.
  2. If the OP has a MuppetX chip he is flashing the wrong size BIOS it has 2 banks of 512kb and he has flashed the chip(49LF020A) with a external programmer with a 1meg (4X256kb). I also don't think he is trying to boot the OE BIOS he just trying to get the mod-chip working The OP also states the mod chip has a 49LF020A where I am sure the Muppet has a 49LF080A chip so to me that sounds like a Aladdin chip.

  3. So it look the same as this. Post a pic of the chip you have. SS Dave Those who can hard-mod, Those who can’t soft-mod.
  4. Hi ALY I am glad you have got it sorted. They say there is horses for courses and we probably have all asked for help at some time so some patience with noobs should be the norm If I sounded like I saw getting short with you it's nothing personal after having my own electronics repair shop for 28 Years and dealing with what seemed like a high percentage of 1d10t customers (it's just a blown fuse well if it's just a blown fuse then fix it your self because I have a minimum workshop charge and you will think I am ripping you off for just changing a fuse) has given me the grumpy old man syndrome. I guess you also would know the feeling of banging your head against the wall trying to help some people Some times it looks like the way I go about sorting out online problems seems to be the long way around but I get there in the end and it's because I don't have the job in front of me and getting people to use the same software/procedure,and description of the fault that I know can make it easy for me to understand whats happening. As for the power /eject button issue check for dry joint's and corrosion around the front edge of the main board that can come from a leaking clock cap. Any way you have a great day. Cheers Dave
  5. Try this XBtool_1.0.23a.rar SS Dave Those who can hard-mod, Those who can’t soft-mod.
  6. Has the chip been reflashed? The Evox M8 bios looks at c drive by default. The M8_16 is normally the supplied BIOS. SS Dave Those who can hard-mod, Those who can’t soft-mod.
  7. For that price it's not a bad buy' I would replace the cap's and re-solder the 2 pin power connector before putting in to use as those caps could explode at worst at best they just fizz the smoke out( and that smoke stinks) and are more than likely not doing there job.

  8. Hi Steo1024 Looking at the pic you posted the Caps near the input connector look as if they maybe on there way out . I might be worth giving it a work over. Other than that good score now you need a 1.4 to 1.6 adaptor and you have a good test supply. SS Dave Those who can hard-mod, Those who can’t soft-mod.
  9. That's pretty much the same as what I said in post 6. SS Dave Those who can hard-mod, Those who can’t soft-mod.
  10. That's pretty much what I said in post 34 SS Dave Those who can hard-mod, Those who can’t soft-mod.
  11. Defiantly cheaper than a Pi. I have some minor changes to do then I will draw a diagram. that looks bad but it's really simple . it can be as simple as a 9 pin serial plug 2 resistors and 2 zener diodes with a total of 3 wire plus the 3.3 volt power. So all up it's 4 wires Power pin 15, Ground pin 2, SDA pin 14, SCL pin 13 on the LPC port. Simples eh. As I haven't used a Pi for reading a eeprom,When you read a version 1.6 that powered up on it own power supply is there any problems. When I tried to read a 1.6 that was running if I was to slow reading the eeprom after connecting the device the fan would run full speed then the box would shut down shorty after and not sure if that happens with a Pi? If I read the eeprom not having the Xbox running and powered via the 3.3 volt pin on the LPC it was no probs and as I said the 1.2 board has no ram and dud cap's and was able to read and get the HDD lock code. SS Dave Those who can hard-mod, Those who can’t soft-mod.
  12. Yep This is about $3 in parts most of which I had laying around and a USB to serial converter or a PC with a serial port. The reg is a 3 volt out to power the eeprom via the LPC port. That way the main board need not be power up by the power supply. This is version 1.2 A program called ponyprog read/writes the eeprom then liveinfo beta edits it. I used the same device to repair a WRX cluster before as well as other eeprom reflashes. I have read 3 version 1.6 boards 2 version 1.0 and a version 1.2 with that. The version 1.2 main board has the CPU caps bulging and no RAM on board as it was pinched for a version 1.1 upgrade so it's dead I have a little bit more refining to go but I am 75% happy then I will build a neater looking one.

  13. Just curious as to why you use a raspberry Pi to read the eeprom? SS Dave Those who can hard-mod, Those who can’t soft-mod.
  14. This is how I set most of my BIOS as it gives a quick boot Play with the colors. Just make sure the it's set to 256k SS Dave Those who can hard-mod, Those who can’t soft-mod.
  15. So I take it you got it working? EV Tool.rar There you go. SS Dave Those who can hard-mod, Those who can’t soft-mod.
