I've modded a few boxes, and told a friend, "Sure, I can mod yours np." Didn't realize he was a v1.6 (never done one before, but heard the horror stories). Too late for a long story short, but here's the gist of it:
1.) I used the Xatp3r v1.6 solderless adaptor (my soldering skills make special ed shop kids look like journeymen)
2.) Following the simple online instructions, I now have it set up so that all of the light indicators show it to be installed correctly.
3.) I have placed my Xecuter 3 CE on the pins, making sure that I've set up the 5v and the power/eject adapter correctly ( I think so, anyway).
The box turns on fine if I hold the power button down (to bipass the modchip). However, if I quickly press it (the switchpad's light is blue, so chip should be enabled) the box powers on very briefly, powers off, on again, off again, finally on again with Christmas lights (flashing red/green)...also, in this state, it is inconsistant whether or not the fan will turn on...never seen that one b4.
I've tried reseating & reconnecting everything, now I'm lost...any advice would be great.
