Hi all, i bought a smartXX v2 chip, i've been looking arround, but the best instalation guide i found is this is that the only thing needed? i mean, with chip i also get the pinheader and one wire, for D0, what should i do with those? on the pics i don't see no D0. I also have a xbox 1.6.

Does any of you have a better scheme?

hi that guide you found is fine.

I'm going from memory here, so i could be talking shit, but then i'm sure someone will come along and flame me if i am.

The LT OPX in a 1.6 is a solder only (without a solderless adapter). And unless you are confident about your soldering skills you may want to think twice about it.

You unplug the power cord (or you will break the power supply)
open the xbox
remove the drives
remove the mother board
flip it over and solder all the points marked with a yellow arrow.

You must make sure that solder does not bridge any other vias than indicated.

to use the pin header you would need (i'm pretty sure here) to rebuild the LPC bus (LFRAME ), which would require you to solder a a similar sized pcb to the same place and feed the wire though the pcb to the D0 point on the mod chip.

I have a solderless adapter here for a 1.6 box, let me know if you want it. In which case i hope you havent snapped off the pin header from the smartxx, because you need it attached for soldeless.

welcome to the world of smartxx!
