I recieved a motherboard with a bad TSOP. Apparently, the board works with an LCP modchip, but the only one I have around to spare is my old X2.3b Lite. But, this motherboard also has a pinheader. I can install the chip, but not make a good connection to the d0 and ground. I was reading a tutorial, and it mentioned that the D0, when grounded, is what forces the Xbox to boot from the LCP.

So, could I just solder the D0 to the Ground with a wire, not solder anything else, plug the chip into the pinheader, and be good to go? smile.gif

Also, if I did this.. could I have the modchip on without needing to ever use the external switches? (Unless I wanted to flash or switch banks)

you need to bend one of the pins on the lpc, go look at the x3/2.6 install guide and scroll to the pin head part and bend or pull that pin out because that is a 5v power source lolz

Yeah, before making this post, I did that and the pin touched my chip and burnt one of the traces on the chip, eheh! However, it was nothing major and I was very easily able to repair it.

I did it and all works fine. :> Thank you, all.
