I have a question I was hoping never to have to come across
I have an XBOX (v1.4 I believe) that has a xenium ice chip. It's been running for for a few years, and just a few days ago it FRAG'd.
I tried starting it up from both the power switch and the eject button, but same result. Xenium chip is steady glowing red, and the eject button is fragging.
I took it apart, and looked at the mod chip (it's soldered on, it's been working for 2-3 years so I'm pretty confident the solder job is good).
When I flick the switch on the xenium chip, which from what I understand is the recovery switch, and then turned it back on, it booted right up into the original xbox menu. I thought with the recovery switch in place it should show you the xenium boot screen?
I'm also not understanding the process I guess.. I need to flick the switch, insert the recovery cd, then start it back up?
The directions I saw weren't clear.. if someone could list out the steps necessary, and explain what the recovery switch is supposed to do (and am I supposed to be seeing the normal M$ boot up screen)?
Thanks very much... I appreciate the help!!!
