I recently installed my aladdin chip.
When u quickly press the on button it powers up as normal. When i hold it in the light goes red then orange and stays orange as long as i hold the button in, When i release it it turns green. I assume that is chip enabled but protected.
When i try to get into unprotected mode it wont work?? I hold the button for over 10 seconds but the light wont flash.
Aslo looking at this website it says the x-box logo should turn orange when the chip is enabled, Is that correct?
One mistake i did make when i installed it is that the copper track for the DO connection lifted off . I still managed to get my wire soldered to the copper track but not to the round hole like in the drawings. Would this cause a problem? I assume that becasue the track broke i have broke a circuit somewhere. My connection is soldered to the wire track that leads to the chip on the top of the board but i assume that track should run to the round hole (proper DO connection) then to another circuit somewhere. Does anybody know where i can pick up that circuit and solder a wire from the aladin DO connection to another point to re-connect the circuit?
P.S - Just to add, the light dosnt flash when the HD is accesed, Well I assume iam using the HD. I have some cd's stored on the HD, when i play them i assume Iam accessing the HD but the light dont flash. I wired the chip as in this Drawing
