I have a 1.0 xbox with a Xecutrer 1.2 solderless chip in it. Always worked great though the modchip comes loose sometimes. What do you think the following problem is? I put my friends samsung in my xbox(traded my thomson for it) and everything worked. I have a solderless mod chip and it comes loose every once in awhile when I travel. I'll frag and I have to open it up. However, recently I have been something wierd has been happening. Maybe someone bumped my xbox I don't know. It's like the modchip is almost out of place but not quite. This is what happens:
I'll wake up the next morning or after I have let my xbox cool down for a bit. The xbox will boot to my dashboard. I will then try and play a game and it will freeze during the load.
Then when I turn it back on the xbox may do one of the following things. Load to the Dashboard(games may now start to load or not), frag, or freeze at the MS screen where it says Xecuter 2. I can reset it a number of times and it may do this. It will always load correctly if I disable the modchip.
I think the modchip may be getting loose because sometimes it frags and sometimes it doesn't and because it always will load when the chip is disabled. Do you agree? Just want to make sure nothing really bad is wrong with it. I'm lazy and don't feel like realigning my chip Heh.
That reminds me. My friend whenver his modchip comes loose he just hits the side of the xbox. Not too hard but just enough you know. And that realigns his chip . Do you think that is safe? Heh.
