Can Anyone Explain This Install?
Posted 02 June 2008 - 08:16 PM
I'm really confused because the way that it's installed looks nothing like the diagram I found for it.
Here you can see a number of things:
-First, nothing is soldered to the D0 point on the chip. The D0 point on the Xbox board is grounded. That's what the yellow wire leading up to the screw is
-Second, there's another yellow wire that comes up to the chip, but isn't connected to anything. I have another pic of where that goes
-Third, the BT point is jumped to another pin. I'm assuming this is just to turn the X2 BIOS on whether you hit power or eject. Not a big deal
Here's where the mystery wire is soldered onto the board:
Thanks to anyone that can answer any of the above questions

I still have this loose yellow wire, though. I guess I'll just tape it off and let it be

It has been disconnected at the chip end because the chip has been wired to always boot from the chips bios (Always enabled)
To do this with a Duo you connect a link from BT on the chip to Pin 9 on the LPC (point G on the Duo diagrams). The Blue wire in this instance.
The D0 is simply connected from motherboard D0 to a ground point on the motherboard. The other yellow wire.
In this case it is connected to the alternate D0 under the board and the wire has been routed through a spare LPC hole.

Also, after letting it sit for a while it freezes during the animation. It was JUST working

Yes you can flash a bios that skips the DVD check
