hey thanx for all the advice guys 'preiate it!?!
But I got it to work anyway...
HOW??? ,,,, The solderless chip had to be solder'd!!!
The POGO-PINS are shit,,, Try'd for 3 hrs. to get those legs to line up & make contact to no avail!!!
The POGO-PINS were desolder'd & Discarded,,,(Boycott Pogo-Pins)
I rigged up a 7 pin-head connector from the back of an old CD-ROM,,,(Crafty)
Solder'd it in from the back of the xbox motherboard,,, then very carefully solder'd the Pin-header
to the GX in the place (where the pogo-pins use to be)..... not very easy as the pins are smaller then the holes on the gx,,,,
I Also removed the PCB Spider leg thing from the basic installation,,,figuring it was a hinderance???
I directly solder'd a wire to the "D0" point on the spidergx chip,,,
I then took one those thin spider legs and solder'd it "carefully" into the "D0" point on
an xbox v1.4-1.5,,, made a little loop on it as to hold the wire,,, then solder'd the the wire from GX to it!!!
Booted up the box,,,, and the SPIDER GX OS magically and finally appeared!!!
Also>>>I scraped out that blob of solder that was connecting the 2 prongs on one of the black microchips!
though i dont know if that had anything to do w/ anything????
What worked for me might not work for you,,, This was my first mod-chip install!!!.....MDemonz
