Xenium Gold Soderless Install Issues
Posted 16 May 2007 - 06:37 AM
I have a problem with the solderless install on my 1.6b. I have a xenium gold chip with the S.P. Ice solderless adaptor installed which is working fine most of the time. The issues that I get is that if the xbox is moved at all the chip stops working by giving me a orange and green flashing power button.
If I then take off the chip and undo the screw to the solderless adaptor and fiddle arround with the orientation and location of the pogo pins I can get it to come back to life BUT if I tighten the screw too much, or not enough, the LPC connection does not seem to be good. Eventually I can find a position that lets the chip boot but the slightess knock to the xbox causes the orange and green flash again i.e. the adaptor is not tightened down enough I assume.
I have tried cleaning the LPC and using the rivets but they do not seem to resolve the problem. Any ideas?
sorry if this doesn't make sense.
Cheers guys and keep up the good work.

If for some reason the chip never really gets a good grip in there and you constantly have to adjust it you could just do a softmod and use the chip incase you screw something up and need to ftp, or need some of the tools on the chip. That's what i just did because my chips OS keeps becomming corrupted for some reason (my guess is bad connection, poor thing has lasted years)
