reposition it or, if you or someone you know can solder it then so much the better!
in my opinion pogos should only be used as a last resort!

update: i have scratched the d0 bit lightly and havent seen the red/grn since, which makes me want to agree that i have another problem. i have been checking other wires but have had no changes yet.
what could possibly by loose? there arent any connections hardly other than the controllers. i have the hdd and dvd drives disconnected b/c i am under the impression from other posts that i should still be able to get green without them.

with the Niteman_Xenomorphic_EVOX_Installer
used, should i still get the ms dash with xbit removed? or did that installer move the necessary files? (i am under the impression it did)

Just Curious..... Did you happen to backup your original files before you installed the above mentioned software?

is the hard drive file system readable by windows? can i set it as a slave in my pc and move files around or no?

X-bit in my v1.3 Xbox is still working great... *fingers crossed*
Anyone else having this problem? It's kind of concerning... His X-box hasn't moved since we got the mod installed, and I have a hard time believing any of the settings in XBMP would have such a damaging effect on his hardware, although depending on the quality of the code, I guess it's not impossible.

Sleep while the Xbox in my living room isn't booting? Probably not.
I tried all the bioses on my X-bit to no avail; I formatted the chip and put just Evox M7 on there, which was the bios I always had the best luck with. I physically took the X-bit out of the Xbox and firmly reinstalled it, making sure all my pogopins were springy and I was making good contact. If anything, I did get it on there more firmly than it was before. Still showing same symptoms when trying to boot; with modchip on, I get perpetual reboots (red LED will only show for < 1 sec before rebooting back to green). If I turn the modchip off via the 4th dip switch, I get three reboots and then flashing green/red.
Here's the even shittier part: I completely took the mod out and put his retail hard drive back in, and the Xbox will boot, but we get no video [only the soothing sounds of the M$ dash ='(].
So maybe XBMP did jack his video card up trying to attain impossible resolutions or something similarly awkward. Has anyone heard about this? Now that I think this could be a hardware problem _caused_ by software/xbmp, I have a little bit more forum searching to do.

I found out that the Xbox stores its resolution settings in the EEPROM, and XBMP had somehow junked that up. I used Enigmah's Video Mode switcher with my mod installed, hit the B button after it loaded, and then rebooted, and all is well again. Thanks to uchuff in #xbins-help and DDay in #xbmp!
