Hey all. So I recently installed an Xecuter 2.6CE modchip on my version 1.1 xbox. It was installed correctly and booted to the Cromwell FlashBios screen. I put the bios (EvoX_M8_06_official_256) on a disc and put it in the xbox. I thought everything was working perfectly, it went through all the correct screens and turned off afterwards. However, when I went to turn it back on it fragged. Being inexperienced in the modchip scene, I immediately looked for a fix online, and found the 3 wire method. I did not realize that I could possibly just switch to Bank 2 and flash again.
Anyway, while doing the 3 wire method, I used wires that were too big and ended up pulling up some of the trace on the circuit board. My xbox will now not even turn on.
So my questions are:
1. Is there any way to repair the circuit board or do I just need to get a new motherboard?
2. What went wrong with the bios flash? (Did I need to make the Bios 1mb instead of 256kb?- My chip has two 512kb banks)
3. If I do get another motherboard, do I need to get the Xecuter programmer so that I can reflash my chip? (The xbox will only frag when the chip is in)
4. Am I using the correct Bios?
Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks!
