Angry I am going to kill myself over this Martrix Chip!!

sponsored links

 
Here is what I have done.

Ordered a Matrix chip from Easybuy2000
Flashed using winlpc and a 256k evox2.5 bios, I don't know if it is a color mod or not
Installed with both dips on, Green light flashing
Moved dip 1 to off, solid green light
Started my Xbox and I still have the green Xbox logo(maybe should, maybe shouldn't, don't really know)
Tried a couple of originals, they all play normal
Tried a backup of Need for Speed Hot pursuit 2 Rip on CDRW, No luck
Tried a backup of Need for Speed Hot Pursuit 2 Rip on DVD-r, No Luck
Removed much hair from my head!!!

I keep getting a disc read error on the backup.
I am using Princo DVD-r and Memorex CDRW.

Can anyone shed any light?
Also does anyone have a colormod evox 2.5 bios they can email me? The site that had hosted these removed their bios downloads.

If not I will be having a Matrix chip for sale very shortly to help offset the price of joing the Hair Club for Men

Can you not use Nero to burn an iso image downloaded from the net to CD-RW? That is what I am trying and I wonder if that is part of my problem.

I reflashed the matrix with a different version of EVOX2.5 someone on the board sent me. I was having trouble like many are with flashing the Matrix plugged directly into the printer port. I hav a cable from OfficeMax that is wired straighthrough, ie no crossover. I used it and was able to flash and verify using WINLPC numerous times. If any one wants the part number from Officemax for this cable, let me know and I will go dig it out of my workbench.

Not sure what cable you're talking about. Is it a parallel cable? Yeah, let me know the part # or a link for that cable. Also, I'm getting my Matrix chip pretty soon and was wondering if you could email me the EVOX2.5 bios that you used in the successful flash. What color is the logo, blue, orange? Thanks dude.
