V5 BIOS CHIPS - $26.99

We have the V540a bios for the I-Opener. These support IDE hard drives and Sound on all versions of the I-Opener. If your IOPENER boots with a DARK SCREEN that just says IOPENER you need this chip to load your hard drive. This version has the latest USB fixes and K6+ CPU support.

Because of what has happened to the V3 I-O sockets (EPOXY GOO), good contact is not always achieved when replacing the chip in the socket. All chips shipped from BadFlash are checked for operation before they are shipped. Each chip is individually checked to be sure it can be erased, programmed, and contains the correct bios file. Many people report that the need to clean the surface of the I-O contacts by scraping with a flat blade jeweler's screw driver. In some cases people have used a fine tipped needle nose pliers to bend out the legs (very slightly) on the chip to make up good contact. Others have reported that not pushing the chip all the way down helps.

Be sure to insert the bios chip in the correct direction. There is a dot on one shoulder of the chip that indicates the pin 1 direction. Get it backwards and power up the board and the chip is dead. Be sure to remove the plug from the I-O between each attempt at chip seating. The push button does not remove power from the board! Do NOT use an ohm meter to check continuity! this is almost a sure death sentence for your chip!

Reprogramming IOPENER Chips
$21.99 each

I will reprogram your old IOPENER chip for $21.99. I ship next day after I receive the chip.

If you send me your chip be sure to protect it as by padding it inside a 35mm film can, tape it shut, put that in a padded envelope, and DO NOT insure or require a signature. If you insure it, wave the signature requirement.

I-Opener IDE Custom Cables

I will make CUSTOM 2.5" 44 PIN IDE CABLES upon request for those of you who want an external mount or want to add a CDROM. The cost will be $2.50 per connector and $1.50 per foot (or any part there of). The MINIMUM ORDER is $10. You need to include your specs in the text box below and be specific with what you want. These are CUSTOM. These cables use a double connector at the motherboard end to do the wire flipping needed for the I-O IDE connection. This means that a minimum of 3 connectors are needed.

To specify what you want start with the cable running left to right with the red pin 1 stripe at the bottom. State where you want the double connector (left end, right end or someplace in the middle) and if the open (female) end should point up or down. Do this with the other connectors as well and how long the total length should be. As an example, Red Stripe on the bottom, 18" cable with one connection at the left end pointing up and 2 connections at the right end pointing down.

If you want loose cable or connectors I will sell them at the same price as assembled cables ($2.50 per connector and $1.50 per foot, minimum $10 total). Just let me know below.

Number of 44 Pin Connectors: 
($2.50 ea.)
Feet of 44 Conductor Cable:
($1.50 ea.)
 10 pin (2X5) 2mm IDC connectors
For RS-232 or VGA mods
