I've had an X-chip with the solderless adapter working in my 1.6 xbox for some time using the power from the USB programmer interface. When I first received my X-chip/solderless adapter I had the same problem as many with a lack of power to the chip. I found after many hours that the USB cable would give me power. I recently started having my xbox FRAG and decided it was time to fix the power problem once and for all. I soldered a power cable from the point on the X-box to the X-chips 5v. When I have the x-chip on the board the x-box frags but the red LED on the x-chip is lit indicating the power is there. When I remove the x-chip the box no longer FRAGS so I figured it has to be something to do with the X-chip. I was hoping someone could point me in the right direction in regards to finding a next step, would really like to have my box back.
