The dayyum thing is still booting to to the old bios. I have tried setting the bios to 4977, 4978, and D6. I have done the D0 scrape... What am I missing? Something really stupid probably.

Ver: 1.1
X-b.i.t. chip pogo installed
led light on dip switch dealio is on.
chip has been flashed with several bios.

How do you know it is booting to the old bios? Have you altered the new bios in a way that will make them different from the bios that comes with the x-box?

Maybe I should say when I power up the Xbox No matter what bios I select I get the big X with MS under it. From what I have read in here when you use the 4977 or 4978 bios on your mod chip you should see something else under the big x when it boots. Is that information wrong?

Not sure but I always change the color of my bios so there is no doubt. Seems like everything is right. Make sure you have D0 aligned correctly and that the bios are set to the right bank on your modchip.

Good Luck,

Ripklawe

P.S.

Where did you see the D0 scrapping for n00bs guide??

No guide per say but parts of info here and there. There was one really good post and a site with pics I found in here. Anyway I have not been able to re-locate them so here is what I do have.

"D0 - so much smaller than you see blown on up the site. I used a pin to GENTLY scrape around the contact point - not sure if i did anything, some posts indicate a white flaky coating may come off - i may not have had that coating."

Now as to how you find the d0 it depends on your version. If you are sure that your version is 1-1.3 then what I was told to do is simply put the xbox in place and shine a flashlight in where the chip pogo pins connect. Not the ones that are in a row but the two that are on the side by themselves. From what I can tell only one of these pogos has a home. Since my xbox is version 1.1 it was the inside pogo yours may be different. When you find where the d0 is then remove the chip and with a pin gently scrape on the intended connection area.

I will try to find the site I used with pictures. The information I have provided here was learned from some of the people on this forum and tried by myself now. I have not mentioned names so that they won't get flooded with requests.

Edit: I found the pictures I used to locate the d0 for my version 1.1. They only show 1.0/1.1 and 1.2 as examples. Scroll down on the page and look for d0 compare.

  • Xbox Version:v1.0

Posted 17 October 2003 - 08:01 PM

I dont know if this will help but it worked for me.
I had no problem installing the xbit in my 1.0 but when I tried my 1.1 I couldnt get it right. First I colored my bios, then scraped the d0 still nothing. So I took the drives out of their trays and hooked them up laying behind the xbox. Then I put the chip in again heard the d0 click so I new that was lined up and then I just loosened the screw a little then retightened just so it would shift a little at a time. Each time checking the bios color finally after about the fifth time it lined up. So its not only the d0 that you have to worry about just keep trying.

you need to set proper switch to boot from the selected banks. Only switch 1 to 3 is used. switch 4 is for disable/enable.

Well... If you did not solder for the eject fix solution, and you are using the dip switch... MAKE SURE THAT YOU DO NOT USE THE "eject fix" bios!!! Use the other bios without the eject fix. If you did solder for the eject fix, then and only then do you use the eject fix bios!

the extra wire is soldered onto the power button, it has nothin whatsoever to do with eject, so ejectfix bioses are totally irrelevant! dry.gif
