Where Is My Loose Wire Supposed To Be Soldered?
Posted 02 August 2005 - 01:26 AM
I did not do the original mod for my box.
I knocked the loose red wire off of something. It looks as though it used to be soldered on to the top of the chameleon chip onto the D0 part. Right now I frag everytime I try to boot. Does anyone know where I should solder it? Does that wire probably attach directly to the D0 point on the board?
Thanks for your help.

I'd pull the board out, check to make sure that red wire routes back toward the pinheader and the underside d0, if so, all you should need to do is resolder the wire onto the d0 pad of the chameleon.
You can look at a pic of the topside and underside d0 points in This teamxodus iceguide. Yes its a guide for the xenium, but it shows the d0 points on page 14 & 15 (underside is on 15)

Thanks Bullwinkle, I was going to PM you if no one answered because I saw some of your other posts and you seem knowledgeable.
PS what is the advantage to having a short D0 wire?

If youre fraggin without the chip in place, you've got more issues than the modchip not working, possibly a cut trace or lifted pad (if the tug on the wire was hard enough, you may have lifted the trace or pad of the d0 on the underside, which will cause a frag.
hopefully the modder catches that...good luck
