Default Old Brick Now A New Brick! :) - 02-15-2011, 05:55 PM

Hi guys, this is my first post here. I have been reading stuff here for quite some time and enjoying very much. There is literally tons of really interesting stuff here!
I have had my Mini 9 for a couple of years now. I had flashed it with the new AO5 BIOS and my big battery would now not work. So I tried to revert back to AO4 and it bricked. Same old light on and nobody home. I was really bummed because I love this little box. It went everywhere with me. I need a computer so I went and bought another while fiddling with this one. I had ordered a new BIOS chip and was going to try to solder it onto the MB but then I remembered reading something here about the BIOS BRICK.....
Well I would like to thank you guys in the utmost way because a simple download to a flash drive saved my little computer!
What I am wondering is if anyone has been successful in reverting back to the AO4 BIOS?
Another BIG thanx in advance!
