After a search I found THIS TOPIC, with a good illustration of the solderless adapter. It looks like this:user posted image
For my question's sake, I'll refer to the top row as "Row 1" and the bottom as "Row 2".

My new adapter, I think, is missing a pin. On Row 1, all the pins are exactly the same on mine as they are on the illustration.
Row 2, however, is slightly different. The illustration shows pins in the 1st, 4th and 5th position (counting left-to-right). My solderless adapter has a pogo-pin coming out of the 1st and 4th positions, but the 5th DOESN'T have a pogo-pin on the motherboard side. On the top, where the chip sits, there IS a pin.

I know it is in good contact when it is installed, but I still get the red chip LED and the 3 reboots and FRAG on the Xbox.

If anyone knows, please let me know via post, PM or e-mail. I have taken a picture, but I dial-up so it would take for ever to post it. It'd be easier for me to email to you. I'm dying here trying to get this 1.0 Xbox working.

Thanks for your help.

Yeah.. 5th position (pin 10) does indeed need a pogo pin. It's the LAD1 connection.

Ahhh, the greatness that is Appleguru comes through once again. I also looked at this picture from the X-S review:user posted image
Modwhiz will be getting a call.

Thanks again! beerchug.gif

Does anybody know if pogo-pins and pinheads can be moved from one location to another on this adapter? I'm in a bit of a rush to get this thing done, and I haven't heard back yet from ModWhiz.

No, not really.. I just tried to remove a pogo pin to see if you could, and I couldn't get it out wink.gif ...you can always solder a temporary jumper wire from the LPC hole to correct quicksolder pad on the xenium.. sort of defaeats the purpose of solderless, but.. tongue.gif

I did think of that, too. Probably wouldn't be that difficult since the LPC is filled (1.0 box). I don't really like soldering on these things, though. Makes me nervous every time, and I usually have pretty good luck with solderless adapters. This new style is very secure. Probably do that to get it to the guy who owns the box. Thanks.
