check for continuity from pin 2 of the LPC to a screw hole on the xbox.. if you have continuity then its a 1.4.. if you have no continuity its a 1.5 and you would need to ground pin 2 and you may also need to supply 3.3v to pin 9 (you can get that from pin 15.)
Hello there, firstly thank you for all your replies, just got back from holiday and had a go at solving this last night. I did as you suggested and wired pin 2 to screw hole etc. now when I have the Modchip unplugged from the header pin I get flubber and boot to original bios which is an improvement.
The proble is that when the modchip is plugged into the header pin the xbox powers up the led on the fron goes green and stays green but no flubber, sound, nothing just a blank screen.
Would this mean that there is no bios on installed on the chip. It is meant to be preflashed with Evox M8plus BIOS 'M8plus_16.bin' but might not be.
Would the M8plus 1.6 bios not work with a v1.5?
If so how can I flash a new bios without a modded xbox?
Hope there is an answer to this
Oh also when the modchip is plugged in the dvd tray will not eject, but it will when it is not and it boots to original bios.This post has been edited by tym2liv3: Sep 6 2012, 09:20 AM
