Dead 1.6 Motherboard... 80gb Drive Locked...
Posted 08 September 2005 - 03:54 AM
So I removed the chip and installed it on a 1.1 mother board and It is up and running fine. I have tried every method of unlocking the 80gb drive from the 1.6 system that I could find… including
1. Running dos utilities and trying password TEAMASSMBLY and XBOXSCENE
2. Booting to windows and using Team assembles app “Live info Betat2” to get the password… Did not work
3. Xbox swap trick (this one sounded real funky, lol… but I tried it anyways) no go.
4. Attempted to locate the EEPROM chip on the 1.6 to remove and resolder on my 1.1. ( I could find no info on this… but I suspect it would not work anyways) I do however find myself tempted to try it.
Anyways.. If someone has ANY info for me on how the hell I can unlock a drive that was locked on a 1.6 please let me know… I’m out of ideas
Thanks in advance!

I heard somthing about not bieng able to unlock 1.6 motherboards without the original eeprom. Is there any truth to that?

Failing that, the eeprom is just right of the LPC header on a 1.6. It has 8 legs and will have "24C02" or "C02" printed somewhere on it. It can be desoldered and soldered onto another 1.6 motherboard only - it will not work on your 1.1
You could also use a programmer to read the eeprom contents if you do not have another 1.6 xbox.

A shame i can not install the 1.6 EPROM on my 1.1... but i don’t have an extra 1.6 motherboard laying around... at least you saved me from the extra time it would have take to try... Thank you!
AS for the programmer... what kind of programmer do you mean?
