I seated the Xapt3r in, got 5 multicolored lights all lit up nicely, placed the chip in and got it all good to go. Now when I power on the xbox, it powers up, dies, powers up, dies, and then powers up with a flashing green/red light, but nothing comes on the TV and no LEDs light up on the chip's toggle board thingy. I did some research on the forums which turned up a post stating that this "Christmas Light" phenomena is usually related to an improper installation or broken traces. I tried disabling the chip and the xbox works fine, so I was sure it had to do with the solder that was left behind from the botched pin header install, but further research on the forums says that the solder left in the lpc holes shouldn't be a problem.
Is it more likely that I damaged the mobo or that I should try reseating the xapt3r? Or maybe it's just jacked altogether?

my guess is your chip isnt seated correctly or you are trying the wrong d0 point
did you even try flashing the chip yet?

So, forgive my newbishness, but doesn't that mean it should pop up with a bios flashing screen when I power on the xbox?

That's what my duo had, and that saved me.

Ive never used solderless adapters but do you have the lpc rebuild part for it?
