I'm going to fit a PC-BioXX mod from Lin-Sang and i'm a bit confused about pin 9/10.
In the "old" fitting docs it says the following.
The jumper affects the function of pin 10. If the jumper is closed, only the BIOS of PC BIOXX will start, in this case the wiring to Pin 10 is not necessary, or it will malfunction.
It doesn't mention wheter you still solder point 9 though.
In the "new" docs it says this
You have to solder the two "pink" points together if you always like to boot from your OpenXbox Bios (and don't want to proceed with step 3)
I was under the impression that you could leave points 9/10 unconnected and short the jumper on the mod. Then the mod will always boot and you can't turn it back to original bios. Which was how I was intending to install it

That is also the way I understand it. There was athread recently talking about this. The dude did not do 9 and 10. He grounded it with a switch (good idea) so he could turn it on and off. Seems easier to put in a switch so you wouldn't have to take the MB out and solder wires on the reverse side. IMHO

What you do is solder one of the wires of the chip to the pink wire point. Then you solder the other wire (black i think) to the reset button point. You can check that point out in the german install guide at lik-sang.com

Why would you not solder 9 and 10? If all the wires are installed and you want to boot off the XBOX BIOS, can't you just unplug the harness?

I was hoping to avoid soldering to point 9 as it's really small (10 is'nt so bad) and this is where almost everybody seems to hit trouble. I don't really need to switch back to the original M$ Bios once the mod is in place anyway. Like you say unplugging the header should disable it.
The alternative point of soldering the pink "e-xcuter" position is just as small and maybe even harder to solder as it is spray covered in protective coating and isn't tinned.
Is anybody running this mod with 9&10 diconnected?

You need to solder the pink point ,no matter what. If it's not connected, then the TSOP won't be disabled. Look at the lik-sang diagrams...

Just take your time with soldering 9 and 10. If you are doubtful in your steady hand, perhaps you should ask someone with a little more experience to hit those two points for you. I didn't have any problem however and I am very much an amateur when it comes to these things. I am running mine with all of the wires connected and the jumper shorted. I have not had any problems.
