If you have a Spider GX and it wont boot to the spider menu EVER then try adding this wire link !

Fit a wire link as shown in this pic and report if your Spider GX now boots to the Spider GX menu !

You can solder the wire or hold it in place with your fingers , once the menu appears you can let go but it wont boot again if you power off without the link made again !

Yes leave wire connected. Leave switches all on ( default ).

Other people have confirmed it worked for them and yes on V1.6 !

Hi everybody !

I tried all methods Internet users talked about to get the Spidergx working on my V1.0 XBOX.
No way...
Then i fell on this post.
And after few tries i can finally acces the spidergx menu!!!

Explanation:

I saved and printed the Gfix.jpeg Hackdabox made available above.
after understanding every word and the main idea of hackdabox's concept, i used the 5v cable from the spidergx bundle.

I put the plastic part of the cable (i decided the red wire would go on the second pin) in the pin location on the spidergx switch (programmer location)
I put the other side of the red cable on the pogopin HackDabox showed on his photo.
No matter, 3 frags...

So i decided to try another Pogopin.
Just see hackdabox's photo posted above.
The pogopin i used is the one just above HackDaBox's one (so it's the second from the Top of the photo)

I left the memory bank to factory's default (all switches ON DIP).
As explained in the Spidegx manual i cut all legs but the D0 one that i put at the right place.
I verified 6 leds were blue when spidergx switch was set to OFF and the XBOX powered ON
Then i put the SWITCH to ON...and powered ON my XBOX

And Miracle...
1 frag...
AND It went well! Finally i have acces to spidergx menu.

I tried this way a few time this morning...
Always 1 frag and SPIDERGX menu!!!

I shall consider soldering the red cable on the pogopin, because when the red cable isn't on the pogopin at boot sequence, i get 3 frags...

I think i will also solder the spider D0 leg in the hole of the motherboard to prevent it from going away.

So Thanks a lot to HackDaBox

E x c e l l e n t ! ! !

I love this idea !!! you simply plug the red and black cable into the programmer port and then you dont need to solder that end at all !

Thanks very much for this post !!!

HackDaBox, you have helped me so much with my cursed SpiderGX (Never again). I thought it was dead. I tried your technique for connecting the two wires, and sure enough, back in business. Bios is loading/flashing again.

On my v1.0 Just like Pipo78, I had to connect the pogo pin just above the one you listed (so it's the second from the Top of the photo)

you rock man!!
