I made the big mistake of trying to install an X2.3B Lite very late at night when I was dead tired, and think I screwed up really bad. After I got the chip in, I started the xbox, it restarted twice then went to the cromwell flash screen. Figured it was working, so I shut off the xbox and got the bios disc ready. When I turned on the xbox, it restarted twice, then the eject button just sat there flashing, no video or anything.
I troubleshot for awhile (and now disconnected the chip completely, still fraged), and decided to resolder my connections, and eventually lifted out the D0 pad (top), now there is just an empty hole. I decided to try to solder a small piece of wire from inside the D0 hole to the trace. By this time I could barely focus and was getting very aggravated. Anyways, I destroyed to top D0 and a small piece of the trace, up to where it makes its first turn (v 1.0).
I have decent soldering skills when my dumbass is awake I think I screwed up the D0 in the beginning by "preparing" it a little too much with an xacto knife. Basically, has anyone had any luck fixing or bypassing this top D0 point. I was wondering if I could solder a thin piece of wire from the trace going to the top D0 and connect it to the bottom D0 ? Or is there another way? Any help would be greatly appreciated! Thanks.
