Rf Remote On Question
Posted 25 December 2003 - 10:47 PM
I decided to use the bottom pin on the column of nine pins. But when I tested the pin to see if grounding it gave me power I got nothing. Curious, I started testing some other pins to see what would give me power. If we consider this bottom pin pin1 and count up so the top is pin9, I found grounding pin2 or pin4 gave my xbox power. Also I tested the top box of four pins (the four pins above the box that contains the second possible grounding location show in the picture) and I found that if either of the top two pins are grounded, my xbox powed on.
My question is if using any of the four pins that seem to work is any worse than using the two given in the tutorial? If so, why? Also, does anyone know why the bottom pin does not turn the xbox on when grounded?
Thanks for any replies and I suggest this mod for everyone. It is simple, useful, and cheap. And for the lazy, a combination of this, a mod chip, a new HD, and turning on 'in game reset' and you'll never again have to leave the comforts of your couch to play/change xbox games.

I already clipped the wire off the pin but niether grounding that pin or pressing the eject button will eject the disk. I'm not sure how soldering this pin screwed it up. Anyway it looks like the pin is lacking solder now so I am going to go back and touch up that solder joint later (I am at my parents for xmas and don't have a good soldering iron here) and hopefully my eject button will work again.
I'm not sure how simply soldering the joint screwed it up. I tested the pin by holding the lead of the wire on the pin before i soldered it and it worked like a charm. Anyone ever heard of this or have any ideas??
I guess the only game I'll be playing for a while is top spin.
