Still getting error:
Testing LPT device address:0378
Testing LPT device address:0278
Testing LPT device address:03BC
Could not detect a flash controller!
Can not continue
I resoldered the LPT connection to the mobo and double checked soldering again and again. Changed LPT settings in mobo bios to EPP, ECR, and other options. Tried with and without the resistors and diode with no change. Was going to try a different gauge wire and the older method with 330 ohm resistors connected to J1FI but wanted to make sure system still booted. So I removed all wires, resistors, diodes and now am getting a 0020 error.
This error code sucks. The comments on the following site are all over the place with what worked and what didn't.http://xbox-experts.com/errorcode/E08/0020/
Would this error code affected my attempt at reading the nand if I caused error during process?
If any of the points I soldered to don't have solder in them now could they need it put back in place? Or the opposite and need the solder removed?
The dvd drive was the only thing flaky on this 360. I had to cause the error somehow.
Any advice appreciated.
