Stupid Mod Chip
Posted 26 November 2006 - 05:32 AM
When the xbox gets warm the mod chip stops working next time its turned off and back on.
Its really pissin me off. is there an easy way to just flash the xbox bios with a hacked bios so i can get rid of the stupid mod chip.
The xbox boots to the standard bios perfectly whether the xbox is hot or not.

I dont think its due to the xbox over heating. The factory bios boots up and works perfectly even when the other one stops

2nd thing, if ya believe its not workin correctly due to heat, get some extra coolin cuz if its not bootin the chip from heat then the xbox is too hot.
3rd, i'd say check ya installions, tap all the points with soldering iron so all the solder melts n then take it off(like only a sec or 2 on each point) incase ya got a cold join.
Edit. would do 3rd thing i said b4 lookin at extra cooling

I also assume you're using XBMC as the player of choice. If so, I'd first try with your current setup bumping up the fan settings in XBMC to 100%. I think the default setting is 20%. Your XBOX might be a little louder, but since you have it in your car there's plenty of other noise to mask your XBOX fan running at 100%. That might get you the extra cooling. Another idea would be to consider routing a dedicated A/C duct to your XBOX.
Otherwise, I'd go the softmod method. If your XBOX still boots to the Original Dash with the modchip disabled then you're good to go for softmod. If not, then you've got to play with the files on your C: drive.
