Xbox Can't Boot From Mod Chip
Posted 25 July 2011 - 10:30 AM
Now I get it out and it can't boot off the modchip. It does the strange power on - off- on then frag. I completely rewired the chip. I have tested every pin with a volt meter. There are no loose connections. The D0 is definitely connected. Yet the xbox cannot get the chip's bios. I can bypass the chip and get the ms dashboard but this is useless.
It is almost 5 am and I am out of things to read or try. Everyone says this issue is caused by either bad connections or bios. I know that the connections are good so now I should try the bios. But I don't know how to go about flashing this thing without the flashbios utility provided by the chip. Please any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

So I got my new chip and voila.. Turns out this chip does die from not be operated for extended periods of time. That is the only thing I can think of. Hope this saves someone else time.
I'm sure there is a more "logical" explanation but I have had a similar thing happen to me. I had a DuoX2 GS chip that was sitting in the package for a couple years, and I dunno what happened to it but it never boot right. Maybe it was my soldering, I dunno.....
