I Believe I Had Just Kill My Xbox
Posted 07 October 2004 - 08:24 AM
Well, I am a noob in modding my system, but I already encounter so many problems on my xb after I brought my chip and look through like 100+ posts, and learn all the terms such as FRAG and stuffs....Well, I really hope that someone will have solution on this, maybe KENWOOD you have one, since I see you reply on many topic. I would really appreciate if someone have a way of fixing this, and hopefully no one will have same kind of problems as I did.....Anyway....I felt kinda sad now.....just lost a job and have not much money to replace my xb...
Well, anyway thanks for listening guys......

Which Xbit version do you have? I guess it is v1.0, if the old flash software version works. V1.5 flash software versions are for Xbit v1.5 only and v1.0 flash software version is for Xbit v1.0 only.
If you are not sure how to set the dips, use format 6, format bios bank 6 and set dips 1=on, 2=off, 3=on, 4=off. Check that you have not damaged the black wires and that the connectors are properly attached.
Which bios are you using?

Thanks for reply, well, actually my xb is not flash orange and green, I did check all my connection, about 4~5 times. It does flash red and green like FRAG as everyone have been posting. And that mean I have open my xb and check everything from inside out. But is really weird tho, I don't know why I didn't sold or anything, and the d0 and trace seem fine, except there is a slight mark left on the trace at where the 2nd control pin had been placed. (The first one is d0 pin). Beside that I don't see any other problems. By the way my version is v1.0 and I did use the old version of x-bit but when I force write it, it look fine, and it even give me a done message. But when I verify it, then it say the contect not match. I am using the x2_4983.67 bios, which my friend send it to me through email since I can't find anyway online. He told me he is using the same bios and it work fine on his xb. I am going to bring my xb to his house tonight and see if I can get my chip flash. Hopefully will work with chip at least. But I still don't get it how I have mess up my board. I only position the chip several times and that cause the damage to the board? Or could it be the X-bit software mess up my original Bios (is that possible? ) That's the only two solutions I can come up with after reading most of posting on this forums. Like I say I am still only a newbie, but I still don't see how that would happen tho? But thanks for the reply tho, it really help me to confirm my soultion. And for people who are new to the x-bit modchip pin install might want to avoid what I did. (maybe is better to flash your chip before you even put it in the system)

Btw. You cannot accidentally flash onboard bios as you have to enable flash writing by soldering.

I am not able to tell you where you could buy an old Xbox as I don't live in US.

I have another question. Is there no way that I can transfer my old drive files to the new harddrive, well, since my original xbox is fried, and I heard that you have to unlock the drive with the original motherboard first before you can put on a different xbox to transfer files to PC. I play huge amounts of games and I really would want to have those hours of gameplay back. Thanks!
