Regarding the soldering, I read some users use conductive ink instead of actually soldering is it a real alternative?

Yeah, some people have used conductive paint to bridge connections for a TSOP flash. I haven't, so I've no experience with it.

It's neat, I guess, but I don't see the point of doing that over some simple soldering that would be more reliable.

Really comes down to alternatives for soldering. Many people don't want to do it or can't trust themselves, I botched many solder jobs which ruined my confidence with it until I soldered in a chip and got it working properly.

I have seen conductive pens used successfully. Perhaps the jankiest/most creative way I've seen has been stripping some wire, cutting a small bit of copper, placing it on top of the two points to bridge, and then taping it on top of them. It was admitted to be a very temporary solution, but hey, it works without having to touch a soldering iron!

MrMario2011,

Already thought of cutting small fine solder over both points perhaps easier solution is yours with a stripped wire or a paper clip, cover it with black tape, run the app "BiosChecker 5.0" to see if detects the TSOP chip,  I have run the app and can't detect nothing it says "Modchiped /Unknow"  so the points are not bridged yet and on successful detection,  flash new bios, no risk of damaging nothing, really only thing that can happen is protection being active, but no warm to the motherboard.

That's worth giving a shot at least, the person I saw do this method used scotch tape. If I were to do this I would personally use one of those conductive pens, seems to be a more reliable and precise method.

Gonna ask someone who has vast experience on soldering to do this to me, or else get a conductive ink.

Really people don't release how good this console is, when I see it on sale on major game shops is always collecting dust, as an underrated system, and people don't know his power to emulate a true arcade machine and dozens of game systems, you can get most of that with the Pandora system that costs three to four times more, or a raspberry pi 3, with all extras will surely reach almost the same price as a Pandora, but none of them gives you a dedicated HDD and the ability to play dozens of emulators and a  list of more 800 original games made for this system, I would say this is a heck of a console.

For sure! If you look around town you can easily find a Xbox with hookups and even a few controllers or games for around the same price as a Raspberry Pi 3 board by itself. Despite it being so old, the homebrew and emulation on it is awesome and in some aspects can be just as good or better than modern single board computer setups.

The appealing part to me is build quality, oddly enough. With other emulation setups you need to mess around a bit with different controllers, dongles, peripherals, mappings, setups, etc. and can be annoying to get it just right. The Xbox has had so much R&D behind it and the hardware is from Microsoft of all places, so no doubt the console itself is sturdy and the controllers hold up well. Setup for controllers is simply plugging them in, since it's a Xbox controller being used on a Xbox console.

      I just came across that PureVPN has opened their Black Friday Deals of 2018 and this year they have come up with some amazing discounts than ever.
      Their 5-year plan is back and now available for only $1.32/M
      Deal: Please login or register to see this link.
      I have bought the subscription but I need a dedicated IP add-on which isn't a part of their deal but it's awesome anyways.
