Okay, just installed the xbit modchip about a few weeks ago and it worked like a charm. Once in a while when I turn on the xbox it would boot as if the modchip is disabled. Then I turned it off and turn it back on again, and it booted up with the modchip enabled.
Some other time, it would boot up where I see the green light blink 2 times, and it would frag without any display in the screen. Turn it off and on a few times and it would be fine.
Somehow what I got the consensus here is that this modchip sucks and I am thinking of just getting a cheap duox2 soldered instead. Oh I got an xbox 1.0 and I didn't solder the chip... Thanks.

Thats definately a loose connection at the d0 point. Just re-install, and screw the chip down tightly and hope it stays like that. A wider screw might help aswell.
If that doesnt work for you, a DuoX2 is about £14, and would cost you around £20 to get installed - probably worth it if the xbit just wont stay put.

The thing is that I also had a matrix solderless modchip and I never have any issues with that chip.
Thanks, I might have to resort to that. There's a local installer who is willing to install the duox2 chip for $35 with the chip. I might as well go for that...
