My v1.2 mobo died last week, so in replacement i got a new xbox. its a v1.6. when moving the x3 chip to the new one the eject button now turns it on with chip on. power button turns it on with chip off.
In the old v1.2, mobo power button held in turned it on with chip off, and a quick press of the power turned it on with chip on.
Everything works fine in the v1.6, i just dont understand why i have to use the eject now to turn it on.
I have reconnected the eject adapter part to no avail. Cant see anything else up with the wiring/connections.

Mine works the same way (X3 chip on 1.6 box). Works fine that way as best I can tell.

Mine works the same way. It also ejects the drive... I do not like that. I wish to have the eject to turn box on with the chip off and power to turn box on with chip on.
Not sure why it is set up the way it is. Anyone know why?

Ahh, its bloody simple. Ive found out why it turns on with eject and off with power. Its because on the 1.6 xbox's the power switch is really sensative. If you just quickly tap the power it works as it should. Just have to press it lightly

Pressing the power button boots the box with modchip disabled, but pressing the eject button boots the box with modchip enabled. This is a feature of the X3 modchip.
Seems backward to me.
Remember, your X2 chips work differently folks.

I have the original X3 chip... and a 1.6 xbox. Quick press of the power button turns the chip on for me... Very rarely use the eject button to turn the xbox on.

I have a 1.1 and I have to be pretty quick when tapping the power button.

Its all about the speed you press that power.
Lightly touch it, like you would a fine woman

I guess I am just a heavy handed brute.
