Ok, i just installed my x-chip with pin header on a 1.6 xbox and when i power it on it frags red/green.

I read that if it frags, it means that the d0 solder is fine. Is that true ?
Also i see the red light of the chip lighting each time it frags: does it also mean that the 5v connexion is ok or not necessarily ?

I am also a bit lost about what to do just after i install the chip. Do i need to flash the bios so it stops fraging ?

Also one last question: i read on the chips table on xbox scene that it needs 1.1 cromwell on 1.6 xbox but i am unable to find anything but 1.0 cromwell on the 2b2k website !

Since i don't have a ohm checking device i can't test my solders and would like to be sure that it is a soldering issue before i redo them all sad.gif

TIA for your help guys wink.gif

you have to download the xchip 1.3 bios from somewhere special and flash the chip... it took me about a week to install one of those b@st@rds.

they can't sell you the chip with the bios because that would be illegal, that is why no one has it for download either, you have to find it or get it from a friend
