No cable in Bt point.
No cable in D0 point in the chip.
A bridge from D0 point in the board to GND.
The chip is allways on.
If the other posibility of installation is better i will remake it, of course, but now the mod is working in an allways on insltallation, and the thing that worries me is the bridge between D0 and GND points.
I want to know if its better do the instalation as alladdin indicates me.
Thx a lot

That being said...
If I understand right, and if the resistor puts enough damper on the extra charge lying around, in place of a resistor, would this be a good location to wire in a case LED like this one to use up that extra juice? If I'm out in left field, then please say so...
I just got a new 1.6b and was / am planning on picking up an X3 very soon. I'm just planning the attack and wanted to know if this light thing could work, or I'll just go the resistor route and cut the trace.
Thanks for any help / comments.
michael_j_w: that link was posted a ways back in this thread: Resistor Install.

This is what I have:
- aladdin 2 modchip
- crystal v1.6 xbox
- evox dashboard
If I cut the track will the xbox function just like it douse when I hold the power button down for 2 seconds to start with modchip?
I just woun't be able to tap the botton to start the normal M$
The normal M$ is usless anyways so I doun't even need it, and if i ever do want it, I would just need to get a resistor solderd on?
hopefully you can understand this, thanks

From RS the part number is 348-0566
680R SMD resistor.
A standard carbon 0.125watt 680R also fits in here easily and is very easily obtained all over.
I'm trying to track down this resistor here in the US on RSWWW.com's US site:
Alliedelec.com but I'm not seeing the same part number there on their site.
I'm also not seeing anything with a 0.125watt rating?
Anyone mind pointing out which resistor would be the right choice for this mod add on?
Thanks for any help... Just want to make sure I grab the right one.

If anyone is struggling to get these resistors you can use a 0.25watt or even 0.5watt
Just solder a length of kynar wire on the ends of the resistor and insulate the legs all the way up to the resistor body (Use heatshring tube or some plastic sleeving whatever)
Solder the ends of the wire across the pads and hot glue the resistor(just a dab of glue is enough) somewhere on to the mobo safely out of the way of anything.
The site mentioned above does not seem to have the correct value in a low enough wattage rating. The lowest seems to be 2 watts whcih is really way too big in size.
Sorry can't help with the part numbers in US as I am in the UK.
I do have plaenty of both types in stock and have even sent guys them made up or the SMD ones but sorry the costs to ship outside the UK would be too much.
