Fragged Xbox? Smartchip On The Way
Posted 06 August 2004 - 08:52 PM
So I figure either the eeprom and/or HD are dead (I think the HD fine, it's a seagate and is quiet but it spins up, the DVD is a samsung and it spins too). I got a smartchip so I could boot off that and/or replace the HD but it's still in the mail .
One question is (this is my 1st xbox/modchip) 'is there any reason to worry about having the original bios since the smartchip has it's own?'. I was not planning to play xbox live. Since this is my only xbox is there any way of getting a copy of the bios on a CD and flash the smartchip from there (ftp/web??) and where would I get a version of that bios (sorry for the n00b question but I'm still reading the forums)?
Well my biggest problem is getting the xbox to work so I'll wait before asking anymore questions.

solid green no vid & aud usually means there's a problem with your audio setting. maybe try to boot the xbox with a standard a/v pack?
also check your soldering job
no, unless you want XBL *wich u don't * & it's not a bios that SmartXX has it's called an OS
for the bios get it @ 'the usual places'

checked the solder points (will check again after some sleep), all good. shouldn't they turn off if I do a direct boot?
we check all the voltages on the LPC board, they all check out (except for the LClk, it was cycling voltages and not even close to the 0.2Vs), hmm...

Oh yeah, if I boot to retail using eject all the lights go out.
