I really could use some help. I have a V 1.0 Xbox with a Xenium ICE chip installed with the solderless adapter. It's worked fine for about a year with no problems. However, today I booted it up by pressing the eject button, but instead of booting to the Xenium BIOS menu like it normally does, it boots to the standard M$ Dash. I checked the LED for the chip and it's booting up red. I went to the Team Xodus Web site and the only thing I could find was that it possibly had a bad d0 wire connection. However, I checked the solderless adapter and the d0 wire, and everything still seems to be firmly installed.

had a situation like this not long ago when I messing around trying to fix a DVD-ROM that wouldn't eject.
The box has a Xenium GOLD solderless installed and was working perfectly and aside from a DVD-ROM catching occassionally after pressing eject. Anyways I messed around with the DVD-ROM and when I next tried to boot it, the chip lit u as per usual but the box was unable to get past the initial hardware check (where you here the DVD-ROM moving). As a result the chip basically shut itself off .
After that everytime I tried to boot the box whether by eject or power button the box booted the retail bios as if the chip wasn't even there. I didn't accidently hit the adapter dislodging the d0 hook or anything like that either.
Anyways the fix was simple enough, I removed the chip and adapter completely, powered up the box in the non-modded state, powered back down, re-fitted the adapter and chip, attached a different DVD-ROM and everything was back to normal.
So my advice is remove and reinstall the adapter. Since the install is a year old, it would be a good idea to get yourself some isopropyl alcohol (rubbing alcohol) and some cotton tips and clean all the LPC sites that the adapter sits on as well as the d0 via. Give the pogopins on the underside of the adapter a clean too whilst your there.

Yeah remove it and before you re-install make sure you clean all the connections... I have heard a fiberglass pen works good but I just use Rubbing Alcohol on a cuetip.
