I received an xbox that appears to have a bad TSOP. It's either a v1.2 or v1.3, and all I have on hand is a matrix. First, is there a sure fire way to identify it as a v1.2 or v1.3? I've tried the serial number approach and it turned up "unknown". I've tried the identifier on XS, and it shows that it is either a 1.2 or 1.3, so i'm lost.
Next, I want to know if the TSOP is trashed, will it boot from a modchip? It powers on/off immediately twice, then goes to red/green flashing. If a modchip will boot it, I need recommendations for a good/easy to install chip.
Thanks in advance.
