Remove the screw and try pushing down on the chip and see if it boots !

Now I'm trying to put the GX in a 1.0. It will test fine (all 6 leds), but frag with switch on and 5 leds on. I can't load GX_OS. Nor the test bios (bank 2) and my flashed bioses (1&3) are 1.6bios.
I want to know if perhaps my chip is indeed dead, or not making proper contact (which i've checked 50 times).
In general this chip is quite dissapointing. I may as well buy a different chip by the time I end up getting this crap to work.

SpiderGX solderless chip
I got one for a friend because it was suppose to be so good, I normally use execute chips
1- it was it was 1 1/2 weeks to arrive after payment, then it was another month before my friend brought
his X-Box back over for me to install the chip so at this time its been about 2 months from the intial
2 - there was a solder bridge on the flash chip (SMT part) so its not ussable for the adverage person
I removed the solder bridge
3 - the board the chip is on is cut poorly causing it to bind on the IDE drive connector
4 - Seating the pogos was a no go do to #3
I removed the pogo pins and soldered it in with a pin head just like the executer chips
SO MUCH for SOLDERLESS INSTALLATION
5 - if I wanted to use the little spider wire legg things to make the D0 connection I couldnt because the wire
is to thick to go in the holes
6 - the install PDF file SUCKS
After wasting 2 1/2 hours trying to install it as a solderless chip like it says it is I finally corrected all the above and got it working, ONLY after I SOLDERED everything in thus defeating the purpose of their claim to a solder free install on any X-Box
Stay away from this chip, EVERYONE
get a Executor lite chip and be happy with less hassles and less stress
This Xbox was a V1.1 xbox also so it wasnt like it was really hard
If you have a SpiderGX chip and it wornt work check for solder bridges if one of the SMT (Surface mount) chips has a bridge , UNLESS you are great with a soldering iron DO NOT try to REMOVE it yourself
