Transplanted From V1 To 1.6: 3x On/off, Fragging, & Led Flashing

What could be wrong?

The 1.6 mobo needs a different bios. The biosses for the older mobo's aren't compatible anymore.
So, if your modchip doesn't have a buildin flash menu, you will need to flash the new bios on another bank (on a 1.0 - 1.5 xbox) after which you can transfer the modchip to the 1.6, and let it start the bios from the other bank.

I can't seem to get the thing to NOT frag at this point. I was out of solder braid up till a day or so ago, so until now I had just been reflowing the solder at the points of the rebuild pcb. the contacts look good, but I think I'll try just using wires. those little pads/vias are tiny tho.
Tried every combo of desoldering d0, leaving it grounded, bridging BT with that pin (6 or 9, i can't remember, don't have a diagram in front of me), etc. and still couldn't get the thing to do anything else but frag, even with the eject button attempting to get to the MS dash.
if I take the thing all the way out it SHOULD be like normal, but I'm afraid something else is wrong cuz I desoldered d0 and still coulndt get it to boot like normal. Is that the expected behavior?

If the box worked fine before then yes you have almost certainly done some damage during the fitting.
Work on trying to get the box back to standard and running correctly to start with.
You will need a good light and a magnifier to carefully check for breaks in the print runs and for solder shorts across connections.

first, do like chancer said, and get your shit booting retail. if you can't, then you f'd the mobo. you will need to fix it before proceeding.
once you get back to normal, find all the LPC rebuild points on the board, and put a dab of fresh solder on them (tinning). after that, tin the points on the LPC board. now, line up your rebuild board, and start with that tricky point on the inside corner. don't add any solder, just press down with the heat. if you need to re-align, just re-heat the pad and line it up. after that, proceed to the rest of the points on the LPC board without adding any more solder. i also recommend using a good flux to ensure a clean weld.
