Aladdin Advance Installed But Xbox Reboots
Posted 09 January 2004 - 12:45 AM
The xbox would start up, get to the blob screen and reboot, no frag, no error code, it would keep rebooting.
I checked my solder points over and over, each point has probably been resoldered 2-3 times. I can't get anything to boot except for the Oz-X flash disc (not Slayer's 2.5 or X-Disc 0.93) so I flashed the chip to 4980.06. The flashing went fine, and when the xbox loads I see the Xecuter2 logo at the bottom of the screen, but it still reboots.
I'm stuck, any suggestions?

It was either Bt or L1, I resoldered both and now its working. The fact that one of them controls the mode made me think it had to be one of the two.

if i solder it for mod only, it keeps reloading and trying to get through to the dash. If i use power enable, the led turns orange as it should and then just before the dash would normally load, it switches itself to ms dash and led turns green.

This one worked for the first 24 hours and then the problem started.
I have removed the chip and tried a different one in case that was the problem., but the new chip does exactly the same.
I have triple checked all points to no avail.

Its weird, the only time it will do anything is if it boots to a cd/dvd.
Anyone have a clue?

Looks like it could be an xbox problem rather than a modchip problem unless i am missing something

And if you remove those wires the modchip will be in always on mode...when i do that, the xbox just keeps cycling ..loads to almost dash...then starts again.
Chip is enabled because xecutor2 logo appears etc....just doesnt get past that.
I have an evox boot disc (dvdr, which i have had no probs with in the past) in the drive and it wont even access that.

1. a short somewhere

The chip is definitely working, because if i unplug the hard drive i get the superfro error screen

The xbox will only boot one of my Slayers discs, probably 2.1 but I don't have it marked.
I keep on reading 2-3 posts about video mode being the problem with the rebooting, but the first couple of times I tried to use the ntsc<>pal option it wouldn't let me, it seemed the disc didn't have the program, no way to open it (the evox screen where it would let me choose it displayed everything but the program choice.
Finally after letting the xbox reboot about 15 times (probably had nothing to do with it but I was getting frustrated), I put the slayer's disc in again and I was able to boot the video mode switcher.
I was kinda upset to see that it still read NTSC (I'm in the US), as I was hoping it was accidentally set to PAL. I pushed "B" to switch to NTSC, "A" to switch to PAL, and "B" again to switch back to NTSC....hit the triggers and "black" and it booted to the Evox dashboard that I had previously installed (HD came from a different xbox).
Please try this, if you can't boot anything PM me and we can work something out. I would probably be pulling my hair out still if I didn't have the info you've posted. Thanks
PS If I wake up in the morning and its back to rebooting I will shoot the first person I see.
