OK, I throw myself at the mercy of those intellects here greater than mine.
Just done a new install on a 1.4 xbox (either that or it is the mythical 1.5, but reading here consensus seems to be it probably isn't).
Anyway, I have performed the pinheader install with no visible solder splashes or problems etc, yet when I boot the box, I am greeted with a blank screen and the eject button simply flashing green. The actual xenium chip color cycles breifly at startup but then immediately goes dark. It's possible to press the eject button after boot, whereapon I get an amber eject light and a xenium graphic replaces the blankness on the tv, yet shutting down and restarting after this has no effect. Still blank with green flashing eject. On next boot.
This seems pretty unorthodox, and I cant find jack about it with a search.
WTF can I do? Help!
All assistance greatly appreciated.
