Attempt To Repair Error 16 Box
Posted 21 December 2010 - 05:59 AM
If the pictures don't help, let me know and I'll try to take a better pic. My Droid didn't want to take any clear pics, and I'm doing the best I can with an iPhone.

If the dash (presumably a softmod) was stuffed because of the accidental reformating, as it sounds it must have been, I guess you just need a new clean install as Joes2Silly said.

If it is a known working AID disc which still won't boot and the DVD drive is OK that did suggest to me there might be something wrong with the chip or its installation as originally thought. But rather than a fault the experts here say that the problem (as so often seems to be the case) is likely a BIOS issue.
I'd always believed that was why a chip was used in Error 16 cases but now I learn here that some chips, because of their particular BIOS, might not function even then. That begs the question: why would any chip BIOS be created which didn't work under such circumstances?

I've Googled a bit and found several similar problems discussed and something that may still be relevant if yours is a v.1.6/1.6b Xbox:-
Maybe out of date and completely over my head in any case but the description of the problem and the solution sounds like it matches what has been said here.

Its a v1.6a.
I got that from your pictures.
Check all of your modchip connections with a multimeter/continuity checker to make 100% sure they are all good. If they are, see my above post.
Further reading (spoon feeding): I did some RESEARCH, to refresh my memory, and found that there was/is only one xbox bios (excluding cromwell), that is both 1.6 compatible, AND has the error 16 fix. It is the X2 5035 bios. Go get it and flash it to your chip. It will allow you to boot past the error 16 (A.K.A. clock check) and fix your xbox.
