Okay thank you for all the help guys, it turns out my Tsop wasn't bad. There was solder splash, a very minute amount mind you that I couldn't see without the aid of a magnifying glass, between pins 4 and 5 of the tsop. I was uninformed and did the w1-w2 connection instead of the back jumper. I desoldered and it worked, thank god as it was a family member's (cousin) xbox, and those type of things can cause poor internal relations. So I have now installed a switch so it will never be truly scewed, and flashed one half with the 4977.
Once again thanks for all the help.
