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.
