Yes, with Smartxx v2 work it does. Built into a 1.6 xbox myself have I. Great it works. Consider the cheaper SmartXX LT OPX you could, perhaps.
(sorry, resist making fun of your nickname I could not ;) )

AFAIK, Xboxes currently in shops are either 1.6, 1.6b or 1.6c. The SmartXX mod chips work with all of them. I'm not sure about the Cromwell BIOS though. It works on my 1.6 xbox without a hitch, but you may want to search the web to make sure before you buy.

Unless I'm misunderstanding you, look for Slayers recovery disk.
