Somebody Help Me B4 My Head Explodes
Posted 18 December 2006 - 03:06 AM
My problem is this. As stated in the description, I have a 1.0 board with the xchip pin header install. With the chip off, it boots to the xbox dashboard. With the chip on, I get the old cycle on/off 3 times then stays on with the FRAG. There is no video with the FRAG.
I have checked over the board for solder splashes with a 10x magnifier and didn't see any. I have used a voltmeter to check connections. resistance, and made sure I didn't lift any traces.
Here are the voltage readings that I get with the chip off and box powered on. Votmeter is set to 20V max.
Pin 1 - 0.05V
Pin 2 - 0v
Pin 3 - 3.34V
No pin 4
Pin 5 - 5.14V
Pin 6 thru pin 11 - 3.34V
Pin 12 - 0V
I have checked the chip in another box that is modded and it works fine.
I am enclosing a link to two pictures of the install, if anyone can see an issue, please let me know.
Thanks everyone in advance for your help!!!

when i first put the pin header in pin 7 wasn't soldered correctly and the modchip would only boot up with evoX
single press on turned on off 3 times then frag - no video
press on 2 seconds booted up evox ok
press 5 seconds (for flash chip) fragged.
When i 'fixed' the soldering for the header evox no longer started and frag.
removing the chip causes the xbox to frag (D0 ok)
remove D0 from ground, xbox boots as factory.
I have tryed the alt points but no change.
I think i will desolder the pin header and try it again.

And make sure when you boot in MS dashboard, the time and date are current.

can u take it off and reflash the chip externally
if the box is bootin with the chip turned off and doesnt boot with the chip on
thats a good sign that the bios on the chip might be corrupt
