Duo X2 On 1.6
Posted 05 January 2005 - 03:52 AM
Just installed my first Duo X2 on a 1.6 box. Booting with the eject button works fine, loads original dash, but when I try the power button, the red led flashes normally, but the box starts then stops a couple times, then stays on, but no dashboard. Any idea?
Got the bank switch to 1 to work with v1.6, right? What if I try bank 0?
Also, the diagrams on duomodchip.com for 1.0 to 1.5 have all the pad letters shown on the box board, but not the 1.6. Pad A on 1.5 goes to ground, what about on 1.6? Just install the pin header as explained?
Full of questions, I know, but that`s what forums are all about, right?
Thanks in advance

your d0 connection must be working fine since pressing eject will load the normal ms bios !

When you say no dash loads, you mean you have a blank screen?
If so flick the bios switch a few times and yes it must be on bank 1 for a 1.6 box.

Update: Resolder everything. Yesterday it used to frag when I tried the power button, but today, doesn`t frag. Must have had a bad solder point.
Yes, all I get is a blank screen. Works fine when I boot with the eject.

I looked over all the solder points and they looked ok. However I did notice that the switch looked like it was soldered on by hand and not by a machine as there was rosin all over the chip. And I also noticed that it seemed that the chip fragged more when the chip was switched to bank 1. Oh yeah and the the xbox was a 1.6. I hope that helps.

1.6 with duox2
on/off and frag
boots fine now after a modchip swap
duox2 seem to be very unreliable chips

lets see how many installs are you basing that comment on.
I have used coming up for 200 Duo X2 not one faulty one at all yet so I would say that compares very favourably with other chips of the same price bracket.
Of the faulty ones reported also no body knows if the installation procedure damaged the chip (Same for any chip that) and yes I know everyones install is always perfect.
Fact is with electronic components some are going to be faulty, but don't base an opinion on the odd few chips and weigh that up against the costs.
