A friend brought me his X3 chip and wanted me to test it for him(he had another guy "try" to mod his 1.6 box). I have a working 1.0 xbox with an X2.6 w/ xapt3r. I put the X3 chip in my box and it just FRAG's. I can take the X3 chip out and put in my 2.6 and everything works fine. I tried booting to the backup (pressing eject and power button) but to no avail. I'm not real familiar with X3 chips so what does this sound like to you?
I know I have the xapt3r correctly installed because it works fine with my 2.6 chip. The only thing I don't have hooked up on the X3 are the HD and LAN wires.
Does this sound like the other guy flashed the chip and f#*@ed it up? Or am I just missing some error testing I should be looking at?
