I tried doing my install with the pogo-pins but I could never get d0 to align properly so I decided to do a wire install instead. I thought the soldering went well but I got x-mas lights when I turned my xbox on. I double/triple checked my soldering -- everything looked OK but I was still getting x-mas lights.

I've since disconnected all the wires and cleaned up most of the solder but now my xbox powers on, then off, then gives me x-mas lights. I realize I probably killed my board but I am wondering if you guys have any suggestions on things to check before I write this all off as a "learning experience"?

check the entire area around the lpc port with magnifying glasses for tiny solder drops between chip pins and the lpc points, check if the d0 point was damaged, or if any parts near the lpc port got removed by accident (the small surface mount capacitors in particular).
