I have an Aladdin chip in my 1.03 box and I want to be DAMN sure its off from now on. I got banned by accident because there isnt a physical switch. So, can I just take unplug it from the pin header and let it just sit in there? Will it be alright considering all the other wire still soldered on including D0 point?
Since you have all the wires connected to the chip (BT,D0 etc..) then if you lift the chip from the LPC pins then it will simply act like there is no chip and the xbox will boot normally. Of course its not the best thing to do since you have to open the xbox everytime and the chip will be resting on top of other chips on the motherboard...The Aladdin can be enabled/disabled via the power button so you don't need a physical switch...
If you just want to install a switch becuase you think you won't forget to disable the chip with a switch as apposed to using the power button then do this: Get a switch and connect D0 from the motherboard to one of the legs in the switch and then connecte ground to another leg on the switch (ground is any screhole or metal shielding)
