X-chip/evox/avalaunch Keeps Booting Into Ms Dash
Posted 27 November 2005 - 08:00 PM
Everything worked like gangbusters, I had XBMC running, and then I moved. I left my Xbox in a closet for a few months, and when I went to pull it out and boot it up it now drops directly into the MS Dashboard. The Evox/X-Chip splash screens no longer display, and I can't interrupt the boot cycle (I've tried key combos on the controller and holding down the power or eject button...).
At first I thought maybe the chip had become unseated, so I checked it and it was snug on the motherboard, eminating a red light. I believe that's normal, right?
If anyone can help me troubleshoot this, I'd be extremely appreciative. I haven't modified any of the files on the Xbox since it was in a known "good" configuration, so I'm not sure what exactly is going on (probably something really simple).
Thanks for saving Christmas, guys!

Did you check the DO wire... that is usually the cause of much grief... sometimes you have to move it round in the hole to make sure it makes contact with the sides...

then i did it again, removing and re-inserting the D0 wire, and again it worked once, and then stopped. This time I didn't even reassemble it between the boots (literally turn on, work, turn off, turn on, disabled).
If it's a dead chip battery, why would it work at all? Granted, the two times it worked I only saw the splash screen before I turned the box off. Maybe that has something to do with it?

I had similar problems with one particualr box. I also noted that first I put the adapter just outside of the sodder. Once I knew my chip was placed correctly I figured out I paced the chip on the wrong prongs or I mis-aligned them. Try that... I know its tedious to keep taking the box apart all the time. Leave your case apart and make sure the power light on the chip its self comes on. Once you get your problem fixed, If you do alot of moving and have no intention of ever removing your chip, I suggest using a little hot glue to set your chip so as to not run into this problem again. Hope any of this helps. I would suggest calling eb2k but I see on the board sombody is having problems contacting. good luck

you should try putting all your evox and x-chip files on C: and F:, by going to Xbox file explorer which should be on your settings because I have an X-chip as well.
You want to use the "All on F" option to keep M$ from looking in and being nosy! Install only the original M$ Dash on "C".
