Xb360 Samsung Drive - Whered That One Trace Wire Go?
Posted 03 March 2007 - 01:59 AM
working on installing a globe360 and im fortunate enough to have a samsung drive that had the bios chip completely covered in glue. (has anybody seen this yet?)
im an experienced modder and dont need help otherwise, my only problem is that i messed up one of the traces and i dont know where it originally led to.
its the 5v pin on the underside of the samsung drive board, pictured below. i know where it is, but with the edited "installation diagram" i have (a piece of it shown below), i cant see where the trace leads.
does somebody have a high res scan of the samsung board?
i never got the firmware key from the drive before starting, assuming i wouldnt need it, as this modchip is a piggyback, not a flash. so with that trace broken and me not knowing where it went, i have a feeling theres no way id be able to GET the key to replace the drive.
so could i have just made my whole console useless by messing up a single pin?

now my other dilemma still stands... where did the trace go from that one point? did it go left and over to the pin of the sst chip? or did it connect to the capacitor just to the right of it? or both? also, are all of the small holes on this board used as connections from one side of the board to the other? it doesnt come out on the other side, and this board doesnt appear to be multi layered, besides the front and back.
any help would be great, so i can repair this one trace and continue with the installation.
thanks for the input.

is this what the board used to look like, underneath the installation guide's white and green circle?
