I'd suggest watching this youtube video from slot one gamer

. It explains how to check what version xbox you have and what TSOP type you have as well. I'd suggest using conductive paint that psnap777 suggested in another post for v1.4 version motherboards (should work with v1.2-v1.5 as they have similar layouts I think, watch the video to be sure). instead of soldering the bridge points. I did and it was easy.(I'm not so skilled at soldering tiny pads)

Make sure you identify the TSOP type before flashing.

Clarification of why I used conductive paint.

      Just quick intro:
      I bought the OG Xbox on Launch day and played it for years before falling out of the gaming world altogether.  I recently got back into retro gaming mostly using RPi based systems but stumbled across this site and discovered that my beloved Xbox in the attic could be used for such amazing things!  Thanks to all of you contributors that gave me a reason to dust it off and mod the crap out of it!

      I have a sofftmodded ver. 1.6 that was modded with an old flash drive I have with s.i.d. 5 on it. It works great and I don't want to format and lose all the movies,music,games etc. however i would like to null the hard drive to future proof it in case this hard drive dies so I can move to a large 2tb drive at that time .Is that possible?

      Got sent a board from an eBay seller that is FRAGGING out of the box. Many loose capacitors and I fear more underlying problems.
      I need a v1.0 or v1.1 board, as all I have lying around are single ATX power supplies.
      TSOP flashed preferred, but if not, then EEPROM extracted, if possible.
      Please PM.
