Hey guys, so after hearing/reading/seeing others do it on X-S and places beyond, I figured I'd give it a shot. Knowing full well it doesn't have many practical applications, I wanted to go ahead and do it anyway because. . .I love doing this kind of stuff.
Long story short, I have access to use a iR reballing station and all other relevant console repair supplies.
Here's what the ram will be going into. A case swap project years in the making. Maybe some might recognize it from way back in the day, if so yes its the same one, unfinished.
So after I got all the ram chips off, cleaned properly, then attached I get 3 restarts and fragging. I fluxed the points first, tacked down two opposing legs then proceeded to reflow the solder to attach each of the four ram chips. After doing all four, I booted up and got 3 restart boots, followed by flashing red and green.
My bios is iND-5003, this should be compatible, correct? I know your bios needs to support higher ram and I've heard this one is compatible, can anyone give insight?
Also, I would think reflowing would be an accurate, controllable way of attaching the ram chips. Would soldering by hand be superior?
Any help would be appreciated. I know the og xbox is outdated now but I hope there's other passionate nerds out there like me to lend a helping hand.
