Hi, I have installed a duox2 modchip on a 1.6 xbox, triple checked every connection and everything is connected fine.

I noticed that the duox2 chip has an option to disable the modchip by pressing the eject button, and I noticed the BT wire solders to the point right behind the eject button, so I assume that the BT wire is an optional wire?

Problem is, when I boot up the xbox, the xbox boots up to it's normal bios and not the modchips bios. (yes I changed the switch to boot to the m8 1.6 bios)...

The DO point is soldered on perfect, I even soldered the optional do point to the modchip as well. Any advice would be appreciated. Thanks

The BT connection is not optional. If you want to be able to turn the chip On/Off then you need to connect the BT to the connection behind the eject/power button as shown on the diagram

If you want your chip always On the connect BT on the chip to pin 9 on the chip (pin 9 is 2 down from the D0 connection, its labled as "G" on the Duo diagrams). Also for the always On method if you have 1.0-1.5 xbox then you have to ground D0 from the motherboard, if its a 1.6 xbox then don't ground D0 but cut the trace shown in this guide http://ca.geocities....aysenabled.html (its in Step 4)
