Really, Really Old Mod Chip
Posted 06 March 2011 - 08:50 AM
Here's a picture of it, I'm currently trying to use the diagram from a similar (looking) modchip to install it, we shall see how it goes.
(sorry for the blurry pic, it was taken with my phone.)
I guess the reason for my post is to see if anybody has every seen this thing before or if anybody has a clue as to how to solder this bad boy.

Got the chip installed, fixed the 05 error, however now it's giving met he christmas light error. I cleaned off the chip and the Xbox MOBO surface before installation, and as far as I could tell there was no problems with either. I checked my connections, all were good. I then took the chip out and tested the Xbox (it gave me error 05 again) so I tried to reinstall the chip once again, and I'm still getting the christmas light error.
Would I be able to buy a new modchip, install it and recieve the eeprom to fix the 05 error that way?

Yes, you can use a modchip to extract the xbox eeprom contents, and with that information, you can calculate the xbox locking password.
I don't see how the install of the chip can give you an error 5. Modchip biosses don't care about the harddisk being locked or not. So, for some reason your xbox is probably still booting it's original bios.
You can also build yourself an eeprom reader to get the eeprom contents. It uses a bunch of easy to get components. Modchips for the xbox 1 are becoming more and more difficult to find these days.

Just to tell you, the one I am trying to mod is a 1.1 version, and the DOA Xbox is a 1.6. It's DOA because the power adapter is fried, and I haven't had the money to buy a replacement.

No, you are getting Error 5 because you are booting a stock BIOS and you haven't locked the disk. To lock the disk you need the eeprom from the motherboard, plus xboxhdm. To get the eeprom, you need a working chip, or an eeprom reader - see the link in my signature.

It seems we are in the exact same situation
I have a chip that looks pretty much the same as that, however it has sst 49lf020 on it
The wiring seems to be the same config i will upload a photo https://mail.google....c...p=inline
But same as you i have a 1.1 and it had the chip installed i had a 250gig hdd in and it would load up the evo dash
then one day i turned it on i got xmas lights, and error 06
I tried my 1.6 standard hdd in it and got error 05
with a closer look, it seem i have a bad connection so i've order a solider tip
let me know how youre going with it
