I have done a couple of solderless installs on older Xboxes, but this is my first 1.6. My friend picked up an X-lite and the new solderless adapter available on easybuy2000.com (http://www.easybuy20...6_adapter.shtml). I followed the directions provided on easybuy2000 and everything went smoothly, until I got to the boot up. When I try to boot up the Xbox with the chip active, it starts up, turns off, starts up again, turns off again, starts up a third time and then starts flashing red and green. The Xbox does not put any image on the screen while this is happening - it seems like it is not sending out any video signal at all (no flickers or anything). When I deactivate the chip using Dip 1 on Switch #2 (as per the instructions found on easybuy2000), the Xbox will boot up, but goes to the error screen that one gets when using a new hard drive ("Your Xbox needs service... blah blah...") even though I am using his origional hard drive. When I boot up the Xbox with no power going to the chip, then the Xbox boots up as it did before the chip was ever installed.

I found another thread on this forum of a person having the same problem I am, but for a different reason. They were experiencing the problem mentioned above when trying to mod a 1.6 Xbox using a soldered solution. A response in that thread said that there were three possible solutions: bad solder points, bad bios, bad chip. I am not soldering, so I checked the solderless spring-wire connections several times and they all appear to be properly applied and all the LEDs on the solderless adapter light up. I am trying to boot up into the Cromwell bios that easybuy2000 ships their X-Lite chips with as I will need to boot that up before I can flash it with anything else (HTTP flash), so has anyone ever experienced any problems with easybuy2000's factory flashing? I would like to hear some input on the first to possibilities, otherwise I guess I'll have to assume it's the chip and contact easybuy2000 about a replacement.

The only other thought I had was that on some of the soldered solutions, it seems that it is required to remove a couple of pins from the pin header (#4 and #6 if memory serves...). On the 1.6 solderless adapter, all of the pins are intact, could this possibly be contributing to my woes?

Thanks in advance for any help you can offer.
