So I have not used my xbox in a few years, but now I want to make it a server. I modded the xbox(v1.0) with an xecuter 2 cromwell and a 120gb hd. Everything went well and I put it away still working.
Now I get it out and it can't boot off the modchip. It does the strange power on - off- on then frag. I completely rewired the chip. I have tested every pin with a volt meter. There are no loose connections. The D0 is definitely connected. Yet the xbox cannot get the chip's bios. I can bypass the chip and get the ms dashboard but this is useless.
It is almost 5 am and I am out of things to read or try. Everyone says this issue is caused by either bad connections or bios. I know that the connections are good so now I should try the bios. But I don't know how to go about flashing this thing without the flashbios utility provided by the chip. Please any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.
