Can I Re-Flash a Bad Flash With a Swap?

Recommended Posts

Re-flashing bios on dead aladdin x2 Plus2.

Im not sure what went wrong but i tried to update the aladdin x2 Plus2 to the ind 5003 via Xblast  ( loaded oh hdd )

The flash appears to be successful but after a reboot i got the 3 boots and frag.    Now it appears the chip is dead.?

Thankfully i had another X2 Plus 2 and using that i can boot again 
I thought maybe i could hot-swap the chip and re-flash the bad one.  However when i pull the chip the console appears to freeze and video goes to black.   

Im running off a Hexe 0.99b11-22 heimdalls xbox engineerind disc to try and re-flash

1.6 pal xbox

Any ideas if this is possible?

I have never done this but i think its possible. Just to know,your xbox is fragging because the ind-bios is NOT compatible with 1.6 xboxes

How how Silly of me.  I see that you are correct ( I wanted to change the flubber and forgot about compatibility!! ) 

On a positive note, you can hotswap and reflash...

I just had to do the swap before i started the flash software  ( swapped at dash ) from unleash x

 

thanks

      I've got a v1.1 that I TSOPed with an x2 5035 BIOS and I installed a 2TB sata HDD. I was messing with the x2config file (to remove the stupid "Xecutor Rox my box" thing) and like an idiot, I checked "Disable CD boot". For whatever reason something about the config file results in a frag and I can't get the xbox to boot the hexen disc. Any tips? Xbox boots fine using stock HDD.

      Hi - I softmodded my xbox original five years ago and didn't use it much because of a house move.  I took it out last night and realised that the upgraded 250GB drive is very noisy and sounds like it is dying.  I upgraded before using Chimp.  I am wondering can I use Chimp again with another 250GB hard drive or does the next hard drive have to be bigger than the 250GB drive?  I have looked for an answer on google but all search returns related to upgrading to a larger drive from the stock drive - there doesn't seem to be anything about swapping a drive for another drive that is equal in size.
       
      Kind Regards
