I just tried to mod my xbox with an Xecuter 2.3b lite. The first time I turned it on, it wouldn't boot Cromwell. I disabled the chip and the regular BIOS loaded fine. So I redid some of the soldering work and tried again. Cromwell booted and asked for my BIOS disc. I put in my disc with X2 4983 and that appeared to install properly and the xbox powered itself down.
Now when I turn it on it powers off immediately. Then turns itself back on. The eject light flashes back and forth between red and green for several seconds then it turns orange, then finally powers off. The same thing happens if I try to boot with the chip turned off (switch light is red). I can still boot Cromwell from bank 2. I tried booting EvoX from a boot disc, but nothing happened.
I tried unplugging and replugging all the cords I could find in case it was a loose connection, but have the same problem. I can see the light on the chip is glowing blue. Is my xbox fried?
