Hi all,

I've had my Xenium chip for about six months now (a friend of mine soldered it in), and never had any troubles. I recently flashed it with the 2.0 beta, and today I changed some settings in order to play an import copy of Ninja Gaiden (PAL->NTSC).

After playing and rebooting, my XeniumOS no longer shows up, and I get a service request (n 5). Now, I no longer remember whether I unlocked the HD in order to play Ninja Gaiden (as error #5 seems to mean unlocked HD). The frsutrating thing however is that my XeniumOS no longer shows up. The standard MS flubber animantion shows, and then the service request screen pops up.

Anyone?

try turning it on with the open tray button, instead of the power button.

I tried that, but to no effect. Also tried the recovery switch, and no change either.

I do see a short flash of red (from the chip's LED) when starting up. Could this mean something?

Well, apparently it's not the D0 point, as we have re-soldered and re-soldered it, with no change at all. Any other ideas?

Not sure if it will help you as I am using the solderless adapter, anyway, I had the same problem too after I changed some setting, reason is that the hard disk is not locked, so what I did was to re-install the chip and it works, I was able to get into Xenium menu and lock the hard disk.

It's a genuine chip, thanks for the hint. We'll look into de-soldering it, but I think that will be a bit difficult though. Thanks for the replies already.

trust me, its the D0 (those symptoms you are describing are lack of D0 contact), those things can be a bitch and a half to get right EVEN with solder. Are you soldering to the topside D0 or the bottom side one? If its the topside I recommend giving the bottom one a try, it should be a LOT easier.

Hi!

I have exactly the same problem!

First it showed also the error 05, and it didnt run xenium OS neither any CD/DVD.

so I install an aladdin advance and it worked perfectly, and I was able to lock the HDD.

after that i re-installed the xenium again, and now my xbox always goes to the original xbox dashboard. I tried putting on the xbox with the power and the eject buttom.

Im completely sure that my D0 point is perfectly soldered (i tested it with an aladdin advance), so I do not know what the hell can be the problem.


PD: i do not know if xenium needs, lets say...'more contact' with the D0 than aladdin advance, but I guess not.

I think this problem is realated with the solder-mode, If i remember well my friend told me that his console was working fine with the solderless adapator, but he had always to readjust it. and anyone know whyyy there is no tutorial about xenium ICE in ozxodus site??? its amazing!!

Im becoming crazy.. :S


finally I used the bottom D0, and its the same. and I also used both the bottom and the upper at the same time to 'get more contact', but it's always the same...

Im really tired and bored of this fucking xenium ice.

you said you saw a short flash of red on the chip? Does that mean after that it goes off? And when you say led you mean on the chip right not the eject button? Just wanna clear this up.

I'm getting a similar problem - think I've screwed it up good and proper.

I have a 1.3 Xbox, Xenium ICE solderless install. I was in the process of sorting out the dashboard install and had copied a new bios to the chip when the machine had a kernel panic on the XeniumOS screen and rebooted, since then I just get a red light on the chip and it reboots 3 times and then frags. Also get the same thing without the chip installed -reboots and frag and thats it.

I have tried the recovery switch and get a red led on the chip, whereas with the switch the other way I get no light at all.

ANy ideas or do I have to chuck the whole thing in the bin/trash which is the way I am feeling right now.

Any help would be greatly appreciated!
