I got the Xecuter3 CE chip and installed it on a 1.6b xbox last night. when I was done I powered it on and the FRAG light came on. I looked at the mobo again only to find out that I had left one soldering point out on the PCB bridge. After soldering that point I tried to power my xbox again and this time nothing happend. It just went dead nada, not even the fan would turn on. Its like there was no power coming from the wall.
Any sugestion anybody? Please help!!!

It looks like you may have burned out a collector on your board, this is a known problem that can occur after chip installs on 1.6 consoles. It's a shame thay never tell you this beforehand.http://www.llamma.com/xbox/Repairs/1.6_Xbox_no_power.htm

or you could have soldered at the wrong points or maby solder got on your motherboard somewere that can also damage your xbox, but most likly you fried something on you motherboard.

Ok guys, I went back and looked over the last solder point I had done yesterday, and cleaned it up a little, and guess what? it's alive, it's alive!
The thing is that now I boots up as if now modchip was installed, go directly to the MS dashboard.
any ideas of where I screwed up?

Maby the x3 chip was already set to boot up like that in its presents, when its at the ms dash try holding Left trigger Right trigger back and black. if that does not work at leased you got you xbox working.

Thanks, I will do the controll thing tonight when I get back home.
One thing I noticed yesterday was that when I turn my xbox on, I only get one led to light up on the chip. It's the one closest to the front of the console, the other one the one closest to the back of the xbox wont light up.
If anyting, what does this mean?
Also, I wanted to hear what you all think about tyring to take out the PCB bridge out and unsolder the pins and try to install the Xapt3r solderless adapter. Is this even possible at this point? Will it be an easy task to unsolder the pins and clean everything out? Please take into account that I've never solder before (the main reason why my chip doesn't work in the first place) or should I just suck it up and keep palying with the chip until with the help of you guys make it work?
and you're right, at least it's working now!
