Glue On Xbox 1.6 Mainboard
Posted 12 July 2005 - 08:37 PM
I hope that some of you can help me, let me explain the situation first:
A while ago one of my friends wanted a modchip in his xbox. It was a 1.6 and as I cannot solder we decided to put in a Spiderchip, as it seemed to be the cheapest solution.
Ok, we bought that one and I have put it in. As you know the Spiderchip has those legs which have to go into those small holes on the xbox mainboard. I have put them in and the chip was working, everything was fine. Now those legs were a bit loose, so my friend decided to use glue to make those legs stay in their holes. I told him that I do not like that idea, but it seemed ok and the chip was still working.
But the chip was not very stable, every few days the xbox was fragging, we had to open it and to bend those legs a bit to make it work again. We have done that for a while, but of course thats not a very good solution. Now we decided to get a better chip, maybe a SmartXX with solderless adapter, so I took the xbox apart and removed the Spiderchip.
My HUGE problem now is the glue on the mainboard which makes it impossible for me to put a solderless adapter onto the mainboard again.
Do you guys have any idea what I could do? Any idea how I could remove the glue without damaging the board? It's a bad situation right now, as I would like to avoid buying a new board.
Thanks a lot.
(I'm not sure if I have put this thread into the correct category, sorry)

as for removing it, I'd just sell it on ebay and buy a new mobo.
