Am I Hosed?

Guess what?? Xbox still frags.
I've checked all over the board for traces lifting and solder splashes, but can't find any. Is a lifted trace easy to detect, or is it a subtle thing? Is there any other reason for my xbox to frag? it is a 1.0, and before i put the chip in yesterday, everything was working.

|is there any other reason for fragging???|
There are only a few possiblilites if you get a FRAG:
1. Mod has no/bad BIOS on it.
2. Hard drive has no xboxdash.xbe or evoxdash.xbe (depending on bios)
3. Motherboard is fu@ked.
Of course there are other reasons like your hard drive is unlocked with M$ bios, things like that. However with a mod installed (and in your case then removed) it is one of these.

1. mod is disabled and still fragging, so this isn't it.
2. i never changed the dash since i couldn't get the chip to work in the first place.
3. i hope not, but it looks likely.
if you can think of anything else, let me know.

black knight, in yor situation if you dont have a mod or D0 wire in you must have a solder splash or similar.
the only other thing could be the TSOP is bad somehow, i would usually say this was impossible if you hadnt tryed to flash it but i had one just die on me, after that iy displayed continuity across alot of the bios points whre it should not, it ended up in my spare parts bin

i had some splash yesterday that i cleaned up, but in the process, i burnt a capacitor
i was implying that i currently don't have any solder splashes. now are you here just for shits and giggles, or are you going to help people out.
