    Aladdin Mod Chip

    Hi Halo_2 Sound more like a bios problem. What version Xbox is it ? When you are booting the Hexen disk your are putting the disk in the DVD drive 1st then powering off the Xbox then powering on with the chip enabled and Hexen can take around 60 seconds or more some times. Are you sure that you used a M8 BIOS? not that should make too much difference unless you tried putting a 512/1024 size in the chip and it crashed during the reflash. SS Dave Those that can Hard-Mod.

    So it did not work after you flashed the BIOS? I suspect that the Xbox when booting from the Mod-Chip is now looking for the dash in a different location. Can you try booting from the DVD Drive with the Mod-Chip enabled. SS Dave Those that can Hard-Mod. Those that can't Soft-Mod.
  3. Hi xboxkid If you planing on reusing the current drive you will need to remove the soft mod for it to work with the mod-chip as the hard mod and the soft mod won't work together. Once you have the mod-chip fitted and working you can use your install disk to remove the soft mod and while your at it unlock the drive as well. Fitting the 2tb drive is not to hard just use a good quality IDE to SATA adapter and a 80 way cable then boot your install disk to set up the new drive. SS Dave Those that can Hard-Mod.

    Upload some pic's of the solder work Some time must be wrong to have 2 chips doing the same as I have said before I have not had a new Aladdin chip not work. SS Dave Those that can Hard-Mod. Those that can't Soft-Mod.

    Good to hear it's working for you. I have not had a new chip not work but I have a Aladdin Advance chip that I pulled from a non working Xbox that would only boot when I used the power button then hit the eject button. If i did not hit the eject the box would boot but no video out to the screen but I was able to ftp files to and from it. I had swapped the eeprom chip from a known working chip and the same problem in the end I reprogrammed the CPLD(Lattice) chip and it's all good. Here is 3 different types of Aladdin chip.

  6. You have tried different component leads and updated the BIOS. What Dash are you using Is it rebooting when playing games and if so what game? Also when it plays up is it at the same time like after 5 minutes of use every time? When you say rebooting it starting with the flubber screen as if you had just turned the Xbox on? What make and model of hard drive and sata to ide adapter? Have you had a good look at the mother board capacitors for any sign of failing and inspect the solder connections for the AVIP connector for dry joints. SS Dave Those that can Hard-Mod.

  7. If you can try a different component lead as it may have a bad connection in the plug telling the Xbox to revert a different video output mode. SS Dave Those that can Hard-Mod. Those that can't Soft-Mod.

    Hdd Lock

    If you are tying to keep the contents of the drive then no unless you can get the Hard Drive Key from the old mother board's eeprom. It may have some default unlock key depending on what software it was locked with some hard drives have a master unlock key and will wipe the drive in the process of unlocking it. That is 1 of the reasons I am a advocate for Hard-Mod's and not locking the hard disk. SS Dave Those that can Hard-Mod. Those that can't Soft-Mod.

    Dead Board?

    Test the 5 volt at the power connector and if it's not a steady 5 volt (pulsing on and off) then the part I posted is more likely a DUD transistor if you remove the transistor and supply 5 volt via a 500 ohm resistor to the collector and it is able to be turned on then you need to replace the transistor.

    Dead Board?

    You are correct PNP and the 1 I used was a 2SC640.

    Dead Board?

    On a Xbox I have here that transistor had a short between Base and Emitter. As it was late at night I grabbed the 1st PNP transistor (2SC640) with a bit of bending of the leads it works. Plus I did not want to pay 5 cents for 1 and 10 dollars post The collector has to go high for the Xbox to send a signal to the power supply and turn on the 5 volt out-put.

  13. What has been said before. FTP the files just set it up before you go to bed and it should be ready by the time you get home from work. SS Dave Those that can Hard-Mod. Those that can't Soft-Mod.
