Fragging My Chameleon
Posted 04 July 2003 - 07:48 PM
I just installed my Chameleon using the pinheader method on a 1.0 Xbox, the only wire I soldered was d0. When I turn on my xbox it beeps, flashes green, pauses for a second or so, flashes green multiple times, beeps again, pauses again, then flashes red and green. I get no video during this procedure (I'm using SVideo).
I've taken the chip out and booted the Xbox and got the normal MS boot screen w/ video and audio.
I'm fairly new at soldering so I suspect that is probably the case. But I've read everything from twisting your Chameleon to using a multimeter to check the pins to the fact that some Chameleons seem to ship unflashed.
Now my total newbie opinion goes as follows: If my XBOX is FRAGing it is probably because it is trying to load a BIOS from the Chameleon but is failing, leading me to believe that my chip came unflashed. But again, total newbie .
So where would you begin troubleshooting this?
Thanks in advance!

Oh one further thing I left out of my original post - my Chameleon's blue LED doesn't light that I can see.

Sounds like your D0 is fine, because of the FRAGing (Flashing Red And Green), which means that the onboard TSOP bios is disabled, and the LPC interface is enabled. At this point the Cham's bios should take over, if all of the following are meet.
1. It has a good flash.
2. The LPC soldering points are good and working.
