i put longer cables on my x3 so that i can put the modchip ontop of my hardrive/cdrom drive in the middle below the jewel...

since the x3 has 2 blue led's on it it lights up the jewel and ur good to go, also a good way to show off that u have a legit x3 (for future issues)
*shakes fist at clones*
my jewel isnt cleared... i have the crystal xbox.. but it does leave a shinny blue ring around my jewel smile.gif


1 problem i ran into is the wire hardness for the x3 is too deep...
so i had to just run wires into the sockets instead (tried soldering from below but it got messy)

bad news everyone...
i noticed that the job i did was a lil shaky (feeding wires thought the sockets rather then a harness

so i started modifying the harness (trimming it down)
so that it wouldnt be a 50/50 shot of my xbox turning on correctly
(wires in sockets shook around a bit and had to keep being re-fed)

first i tried soldaring to the bottom of the x3... but that didnt seem to work at all...

then i tried again... re-doing all wires...
didnt work again... thought maybe i fried my xbox...
so i hooked them up through the harness again.. worked fine...

but for some reason no matter what i do i get to the same conclusion...
this wireing harness has magical powers... and if tampered with will not grant your wishes of ultimate xbox power ohmy.gif

anyone else accually do this mod yet that could sujest reasons why my soldaring to the bottom of the x3 would not have worked (it worked but only if i held the power button until the x3 logo came up otherwize it would do the usual boot up 3 times thing and display nothing)

Directly or not it is still lighting the jewel with LEDs.

So now you are mad because I pointed out that the jewel is still being lit up by LEDs? Grow up.

where in the post did i say it wasnt lit up using some led's

to led your jewel is to accually wire in some led's and resistors and do the whole job...
i am not adding a single led when moving the modchips location....

but keep arguing all u want... its irrelevent to the post...

as for your wastes of posts.. thoes are facts....
so before you tell me to grow up.. could you please stop attacking posts for no reason
thank you wink.gif

The fact is still that the jewel is being lit by LEDs. To LED a jewel simple means that the jewel is being lit by LEDs. It does not matter how you do it it, it is still being lit by LEDs.

That is still using LEDs to lit a jewel. So I guess it should read "Why Led Your Jewel? when what this actually is is still leding your jewel!"

Yes this is different. Is is still LEDing a jewel? Yes.
