Got it to work with soldering to the pinheader on a 1.6. It's been working perfectly for over 8+ months. Before I soldered I actually just taped all my connections in to verify it working.
Ok, here's the deal... I have an XBox 1.6b and recently ordered the x-chip combo from EB2K. All I got in the package was the X-Chip w/ USB and the solderless adapter. No pin header was included but since the *new* solderless adapter says it works with all units (including 1.6) I went ahead with the install.
Got the solderless adapter in place and all 5 blue lights come on when I power it up. Great, I thought until I install the X-Chip.
1) There are 16 pins on the solderless adapter but only 12 on the X-Chip and no clear instructions anywhere in the manuals as to which way to align the X-Chip onto the adapter, so I follow the logical choice based upon what I saw in the X-Lite install manual. (note: I've tried as many different ways as I could get it to fit since then).
2) I flashed the Evo-X 1.3-1.6only.bin BIOS onto the X-Chip using X-Control. No problems with that.
3) No matter how I align the X-Chip on the adapter, I either get the standard MS dashboard boot or I get the power-on-power-off-power-on-FRAG error. I have yet to get a successful Evo-X boot.
After reading many of the posts on these forums I feel a sense of being mislead and my thoughts of actually getting this thing working has dwindled to near hoplessness.Since they didn't include the pin-header, I have no way to try a soldered install and I have emailed EB2K with no response.
Unless some kind soul on these forums has had this problem and wouldn't mind posting the steps they took to fix the problem here, I'm afraid I'm just screwed out of $70 bucks and will have to find a different mod chip to install.
