Some of you may have had problems with modchips like the old Aladdin mods and the cyclone mod, either you couldn't install them (half moon connectors come off really easily) or yours wasn't flashable. Others have broken pins off their Matrix (don't ask). There are many reasons why this guide may come in handy.
Purpose: To use the SST chip from your modchip as a standalone mod, which is flashable via evox
It's pretty simple really, we just take the SST chip from the socket of the old modchip, or desolder it, then do some bridging of the pins and wire it all up
Here is the pin layout digram. All you need to do it connect all the points of the same color on the socket or chip, either by bridging them with solder or connecting wires. Then you connect your mod to the LPC bus on the Xbox motherboard, again to the apropriate colors. Credit goes to Milksop for the original diagrams =)
Here is one of my 2 LPC Mod v2.0's that I had, this one worked:
However the 2nd one was a dud, fortunately it was only the PCB so I simply took the SST chip from the socket, followed my diagram above, and here is the finished product: This post has been edited by rewen: Jan 15 2003, 01:54 AM
