I've already tried searching...
Im installing a duox2 modchip. I've done about 8 modchip installs before. I've always used the bottom d0 point on the xbox mobo's. Someone used my soldering iron, and turned up the wattage on it. When I went to use it, I didnt notice it, and I melted away the bottom d0 point with the hot iron No problem I thought, I will just use the top d0. I brought the wattage back down on the iron, and everything went smoothly on the top d0. The connections look good, nice and shiny, and nothing moves at all. But when I plug in the xbox, its still f.r.a.g'n.
My question is, if the bottom d0 is gone, will it still cause the xbox to f.r.a.g even though the top d0 has a good connection? Or will I have to fix that bottom trace somehow?
Thanks in advance

I would connect top D0 to bottom anyway and get the M$ bios working then go from there troubleshooting the install.

Im doing a quicksolder install for this duox2. I filled all the holes on the lpc bus bus before I put the chip on, the I lined the chip up with the lpc bus and solderd the chip on from there. Was that wrong?
This is a 1.4 xbox. I have no m$ bios becuase Im recovering this xbox from a bad tsop flash...

Unless you are very good at quicksolder yes that was not the easiest way to install it. You should have used the pinheader that comes with these chips.
If the M$ bios is shot, then you may as well connect BT on the chip to Pin 9 (point G) on the chip. this makes the chip always on. The RED LED should be blinking on the chip.
If the machine still FRAGs then the LPC connections are the problem

Dunno what going on now though.. the red light on the chip is flashing fine. When I turn the xbox on, it flashes amber for a second, red once, then it holds green. but no video. Is this normal, I have a focus chip BTW?

I just checkd the whole mobo, no solder splashes. LPC looks fine. I plugged the xbox in, and took my multimeter and followed hackdabox's tutorial. The LPC bus appears to be fine, as I'm getting the correct voltages in all areas. BT is connected to "G" so the modchip will be "always on".
Still, when I turn on the xbox, it flashes amber twice, red once, and flashes green a few times then stays solid green. Also at this time I hear the DVD spinning up and down 3 times. HD spins right up, but I still get no video?

It was my video wires. They work fine for my xbox (1.1), but not for a newer one. Used the wires that were supplied with the xbox im currently modding and, BAM! VIDEO!
Just gotta flash it, install Ava and I'm done!
Thanks Chancer and Deakfreak for all your help!
