Have you tried to hold the power button for longer?

If you have another xbox on hand with an aladdin or LPC2 ect., try to hot flash the 49lf020 in another xbox.

I had a same issue with an 49lf020 (on a LPC2 Mod Chip) and after i hot flashed the chip it works fine now and can be flashed in the other box.

EDIT: Which 49lf020 you have - 49lf020 / 49lf020A / 49lf020B?

That needs to be in the evox.ini in case you want to flash it with evox.ini

Quote

flash = 0xbf52,"SST SST49LF020A",0x40000;


flash = 0xdab0,"SST SST49LF020A",0x40000;
flash = 0xbf57,"SST - 49LF002B",0x40000;

Or you use : SundayFlash v1.2 for SST49LF004B (atteched)

or

Option three you use :

eurasia pro generic flash disc v1.3 ( DL : Please login or register to see this link. )

XFlash & co will not work on A/B chips.

Please login or register to see this attachment.

 

EDIT : You can also disable the write proction by bridging bt with l1 on the chip (But mainly you should not need to do that!).

! -> And if you press to long on power the write poction is ON.

This is usually because the evox.ini file doesn't contain the correct flash information for the flash rom on the chip. 

i used hexen 2017, and checked evox.ini file, it does contain device id.

can't get to flash it. I tried 2 seconds power button hold, no dice. Chip boots bios OK, but cant flash it.

Which version of the Aladdin modchip do you have?  Please post a picture of it.  Need at least one picture showing the entire modchip side with all the chips visible on the PCB.  A picture of the non-component side too if not soldered into the Xbox using the quick solder install method.

i flashed 3 aladdins with hexen 2017, all have same problem. 2 original old skoll, 1 fake. Before flashing it was detected OK. I noticed bios boot animation slows down without dvd rom.

lifted BT pad was already like this, it was previously glued with super glue, after resoldring it poped out again.

I ruined one LPC chip, afraid to use it again. Resurrected by hotswapping them, reflashed with hexen and now i cant flash them, i did xblast again and still ruined chip.

Under flash device it says:

MF ID: BF

DEV ID: 52

Name: SST_49LF020A

Total size: 256KB

which is good, since it can detect my unit.

But in maine menu say :Modchip: unsupported modchip.

Should i try to desolder BT and l1 from the motherboard and shor them together like said previously? To make super shure it's enabled to be flashed.

I always link the BT to ground on the Aladdin chips and the only reason to connect to the power button was for Xbox Live.

The L1 is for the LED to indicate that the chip is active or not and flashable so not needed.

You could still fix it with a hot swap but you will need to load from a board with a modchip that can be removed and preferably a version 1.0 -1.4 with the D0 linked to ground and not to the modchip, The version 1.6 can be a bit finicky with the Lframe(D0) conection.

 

Boot from the good chip then load the bios flash and select the BIOS file then swap the chip and compleat the flash.

I have saved a few Aladdin chips that people have stuffed doing that way.

There's an old thread on the Please login or register to see this link. with a same error message.  Turned out the 3rd party controller they were using caused the flashing problem.

Are you using a 3rd party controller?

Edit: I believe the reason for that error is to indicate that not all functions of the XBlast Lite modchip are supported when the XBlast_OS is used with that modchip, not that the modchip is not flashable.

      Hi,
      I just replaced my Philips VAD6011/21 Disc Laser Lens with a Disc Laser Lens for Xbox SPU-3141 Philips Microsoft original from ZedLabz Please login or register to see this link.
      Unfortunately it is still not reading my xbox games discs.  I have the Rocky5 Softmod and it states a DVD drive status of "unknown".  It seems like I did it correctly and desoldered those two points on the new Disc Laser Lens.  Sometimes I will get the "Empty" status too.  
      I tried Pot tweaks on the old laser and then that helped for a very short time so I bought the new laser after it stopped working.
      Any ideas?
      Thanks!
