Okay, I'm quietly having a heart attack about this one.
I was having a huge amount of trouble with a Duo X2, wasn't booting at all (FRAGing). So I removed the chip from header, disconnected D0 and BT. Xbox booted normally with original MS BIOS, thank god.
After resoldering all my wires, and trying to resolder the pins in the LPC header (the side on the board, not the chip), and not getting any better result with the FRAGing, it all went wrong.
I decided to remove the entire LPC header for the chip, and start all over again. My solder wick wasn't removing the solder, and getting the $hits, I grabbed my pointy-nosed pliers and gave the pin a pull.
It came out, but so did the little metal ring!!! OMG
So I didn't panic, tried to fill the hole with solder, stuck a different pin into point A and attempted to solder it back in as if nothing had happened.
Here's where I am up to...
- With normal boot, the chip turns on (Red LED flashing)
- With boot by eject, the Xbox boots into original MS.
This is my problem...
- Normal boot gives no Video or Audio. This console is NOT, i repeat NOT, FRAGing anymore.
Anybody know of an alternative for point A? Here's a diagram of the mod chip install for those interested.
