X2.3b Lite Installs
Posted 25 February 2004 - 03:53 PM
Here is how it goes:
i run a small mod business in my hometown but the last few months i have been doing my installs with cheapmods like the aladdin and the apple ( both good chips btw ) but here recently a few clients requested the new X2.* chip so i said sure its a good chip and ordered 4 of them from mods4less.com
come to find out it took them a damn 2 weeks to ship a whole 4 chips and when they finally came i decided to check them out and found that they chips did'nt even come with the usb power piece, or the 2nd ground piece. but i said ohh well i can just solder a power and ground into the LPC and things will work fine. So with this done (because i've done it a good many times) i installed the chip and fired it up. First time was great so i threw in my DVD with the "new bios" that i wanted to flash the chip with and things went great. So this was a friday night and i decided to do the other 3 boxes on saturday night. So i when saturday night came around i did the same to the next xbox and when the cromwell came up i threw in my DVD again and after the flash, when i went to turn it back on the chip frag'd. I was like .. huh i know my d0 was good so i checked my wires again and things seemed to be ok, but then when i tried bank b on the X2.3b it came up with cromwell again and i attempted to flash again, and when it came back on the cromwell just came up again .. so i soon figured that i was flashing with a 512 bios and decided that obviously the first bank was going to be reflashed over and over but it still fragged so i then did a little experiment and flashed - from bank b - the chip with a 1mb bios and once it flashed and i turned it back on it was just frag'n like the bank a when i did the first flash with the 512 bios. So then i thought well maybe this chip is just bad because the night before the X2.3b lite worked 100%. But i soon found that the other 2 chips i tried that saturday night also did the same thing. I know it cannot be my bios disc because i then flashed my aladdin advance with the same bin file i had been using for the last year. Bottom line here is that I got 3 bad X2.3b Lite chips and i am very upset at the quality here and am not sure what to do with these chips ..

2.3b does not use the usb adapter or the extra ground. they did away with these features as there were too many problems.
