Why no Xenium or SmartXX support?

Post by xboxboy » Wed Jul 28, 2004 2:27 pm

Can someone just please add some detail as to why these chips are not supported? Is it just that the automated installer can't flash them directly?
Does that mean that I cana put the BIOS on myself?

Will there be an option in the intstaller that let's the user just skip the auto flashing of the chip? I think that more people would be able to benefit from the software in that case...myself included ;-)

thank you.

Yeah, its that the installer cannot flash them. In future releases ill make it so the installer doesnt bail out when flashing fails.
