go to www.HackDaBox.com click on Spider GX !

Soldering wont really help with the Spider GX , squeeze it in and if you get all 6 leds on ( one led on the SPider GX and 5 on the SpiderWire PCB ) with the chip turned off then the legs are inserted ok make sure the Spider GX is squeezed onto the lpc !

Use the X2 5035 V1.6 bios and put the edited x2config.ini on your E:\ drive you can grab it from here ...

Edited x2config.ini

I tried last night...thats what i got just tried again and same thing sad.gif



also why are all the leds turning on when the chip is disabled..? wouldn't that mean that there is a connection? maybe its something else i need to fiddle around with?

My website does get busy but it is working fine for me ??? Anyway try the mirror site posted above !

Soldering is not really possible with the Spider GX ... i guess you could remove all the pogo pins and solder on a pinheader and then solder wires on the motherboard for a LPC rebuild but it would be easier to buy another cheap chip and solder that in !

Try returning the chip and order a different chip if you can solder like the duox2 !

Is my chip broke? or am i just really bad at installing it.

For the fact that it frags means your d0 is working !

It's the connection to the lpc that is bad , try pushing down firmly on the chip in different spots and turn on the box ( keep away from the power supply - leave the hard drive in the xbox but remove the dvd-rom and flip it so it's facing the wrong way around )

If it boots even once then your problem is poor lpc connection !

OK there are 5 leds on the SpiderWire PCB. With the Spider GX off you should have all 5 leds on. When you turn the chip on only 4 leds will be on. There is also a LED on the Spider GX itself so you will have 5 leds on in total out of 6 !

Dude I have the same freegin problem, I have spent a week on this board trying to find a fix. SpiderGx just sucks plain and simple. I am gunna try and exchange for the reliable Xenium ICE. I know cause I've installed them and they are a walk in the park compared to this piece of shit spiderGx.
