Thanks to Rabid1 for writing this this guide, I'm just reposting for those of us here. Original post here:http://teamxodus.com/modules.php?name=Foru...iewtopic&t=8009
I am sure someone will post a better guide with clearer pic's but i figured enough people have asked about it it might save some redundant questions.
Sorry for the picture quality, I am sure somebody will come up with a better guide in time.
Installing the solderless portion of the new TeamXodus SP solderless solution.
I take no responsibility for a fubar Xbox using this guide. The decision to mod is yours; this is just to help you get there. Never work on your Xbox with the power cord still attached. Never move the chip or adapter with the cord attached and/or the power on.
This is a quick guide and assumes you have read Caps Iceguide or some surely lesser guide, and are familiar with opening the Xbox case and identifying your motherboard version and d0 point. I have used a 1.4 for the examples.
Since the new solderless has not come out separately you will need the following from the SP bundle: the thick smaller washer, black screw, rivets (optional), and the solderless adapter.
Initially the default bend on the d0 hook from the factory looks like this.
I have bent enough of these to do it in my sleep and getting as close to this as you can before you start will help.
Remember the d0 hook is a little fragile so do not use a plier to just torque the wire. Gripping the wire gently near the adapter with a pair of needle nose and using your fingers to shape the wire.
There are two ways to place the adapter. Before you put the adapter in place put the smaller, thick washer into the slot on the screw end of the adapter. The first way to set the adapter is to place the d0 in the via and then carefully pull the adapter to the LPC, and with one finger press the adapter into place and screw down the adapter using the black screw with the other hand. The second is to place the adapter on the LPC, screw it down and gently pull the wire hook to the d0 via. Once it is in place it will look like this.
Once you have placed the chip on the pins with the X of Xenium facing the back of the case, reconnect the HD, DVD, video, controller, and power cord. Power up and if all is well you will see this, along with the Xenium OS menu on your TV.
Congratulations, you’re done. Carefully attach the external LED, if you wish, unplug and put your case back together.
Here are some troubleshooting basics:
Red Xenium LED and boot the MSdash – bad connection on the d0, check the tension and contact with the d0 via on the d0 hook, test the continuity of the d0 hook to pin 4.
Red Xenium LED and FRAG(flashing red and green) – bad contact on the LPC, make sure the adapter is aligned well on the LPC, check to make sure none of the pogo pins are stuck in the compressed position. Use the optional rivets if necessary; make sure to lay them out exactly the way the pins layout on the adapter.
