Xbit 1.5 W/adapter In 1.6b Xbox
Posted 10 January 2005 - 12:03 AM
1. The green and brown wires are reversed in the picture I used from DMS and the mod wouldn't boot. I swapped the brown and green wires to a final position in the LPC of Green - pin 2 and Brown - Pin 1. After this the mod worked successfully
2. The green LED on the XBIT was always on when the power cord was attached. This was a concern to me for a couple of reasons. I didn't want the XBIT to always be powered up and excessivly stress the chip and I didn't know what affect it would have on the XBOX itself. With the adapter installed, the chip draws its power from the 5v pin on the LPC port. This pin always has 5v apply to it even when the xbox is off. To solve this I used the included DVD power cable that is normally used for XBOX 1.5's and cut the connector from the red and black wires. Next I removed the orange wire that was connected to the LPC port and connected it to the red wire from the DVD cable. The red wire (5v) from the DVD cable is switched on only when the xbox is turned on. This allows the XBIT to only get power when the XBOX is power on. I soldered the wires and put a little heat shrink over the joint to protect it from shorting out. I cut the black wire off because it isn't needed. The chip is grounded using another pin on the LPC port. I tried using the cabled normaly and just connecting it directly to the chip with the orange wire disconnected but the mod wouldn't work correctly.
Here is a link to a picture of the install.

And what about pogo-pins installation of 1.5 on 1.6?

I suppose it's possible if the LPC rebuild is changed a little bit. I have seen a post around here about doing a 1.5 install without the adapter but it still requires you to rebuild the LPC and solder it in. I haven't tried it myself so I don't know if it works or not.
Since you already have to solder to rebuild the LPC, and the adapter is only $5 US or so, you might as well finish off the job and just solder the wires in. Then you don't have to worry about the chip coming loose.

As far as I know the "EVOX M8+ 1.6" is the only bios that will work on a 1.6 xbox. Go to xbins to get it. There is a tut for xbins here if you haven't used it before. When this bios boots you will get a EVOX symbol in the upper left corner of the screen its big you won't miss it.
Otherwise check your LPC rebuild you might have missed a point. Here's a link to the rar file on DMSs web site. This is the one I used to do the rebuild.

so all i need to do is solder in the nine wires, flash the chip and then install the dash with slayers 2.6?
i put the chip in and it just booted normally and says it does not recognize the disc with slayers 2.6 on it.
then i found this forum and changed the two wires around and it still boots normally and will not read the disc but the light on the usb hookup for the chip is now on.
do i have to do the lpc rebiuld?

1. - LPC rebuild like DMS webpage.
2. - Adapter 1.6 solder like DMS page. (without any wire change).
3. - Flash Bios with M8_16.
4. - Boot with i.e. Slayers 2.6 on a CD-RW.
Can anybody confirm this???
Thankx, and happy modding.

1. Rebuild LPC following the DMS instructions.
2. Adapter install following the DMS instructions with the following exceptioins
--a. The Brown wire to LPC Pin 1(square pad) and the Green wire to LPC Pin 2
--b. Using the DVD power cable included with the chip, cut the black wire out completely. The red wire is connected to the orange wire from the adapter. Cover the connection to protect it from shorting out.
3. Flash with M8_16
4. Format and install using your favorite dash/boot CD
Notes: 2b is an option. The mod will work by soldering the orange wire to the LPC as shown on the DMS instructions. The only reason I did this was to prevent the xbit from always being powered up when the Xbox was in standby (Power cord plugged into the outlet). This provides the benifit of no longer need to unplug your Xbox when you change the switch settings on the XBIT.
I also found it easier to do the LPC rebuild after soldering the adapter wires into the LPC port.
You can see an image of my installation by following the link in the first post.
