    Hi.
    My xbox has just recently started acting up and I can't seem to figure out how to get it starting again.
    Apparently, I've got F.R.A.G. (Flashing Red and Green)

    What F.R.A.G. does is it powers up the xbox and shuts off three times, then flashes red and green around the eject button.

    I do have a matrix modchip and I understand that I need to reflash it, but I cannot comprehend the instructions people are giving me.

    So, I am asking around if anyone has the experience and knowledge to repair my xbox, or if there's a shop that I can send my box to. Of course there will have to be some agreement so that you don't take off with my box, but we can work that out.

    I'll reward the one who fixes it;-)

    Where do you live? I'd be glad to fix it FOC- pay shipping...

    That's my way of giving back to the ones that helped me..

    Good for you dude:)
    so Do I:)

    regarding the reflash
    have you tried a hotswap?
    boot up with a flashed modchip, then whilst its on, change the chip for the one that needs flashing
    and flash it from evox

    You know what, I tried for 17 hours, downloading everything to reflash this chip and it's driving me nuts. I'm posting my xbox on ebay. Hopefully I'll get enough money out of it to cut the cost for a new xbox.
