I tried to install an Aladdin modchip on my TSOP'ed 1.0 xbox. I overestimated my soldering ability and managed to seriously botch the installation. It looks like I damaged the pads near D0. When I try to boot the xbox, it FRAGs. I'd like to get it back to a working state. Do I have any options for repair or am I SOL?
Well, I softmodded then tsopped and tried flashing a winbond bios Evox 8 which was all going well until it turned off after flashing then wouldn't turn back on except doing the triple on then off crap. Assuming I have done it right and it was a bad flash? What now?
Hi all, I've recently decided to get back into the Xbox scene again after quite a few years. I'd seen that the OpenXenium modchip was one of the easiest and most up to date chips so I bought one to fit into my 1.6 crystal. I decided on using an LPC board instead of choosing a wired install but I found it really clunky, and was having trouble getting it to boot. I decided, after numerous attempts to get things running, to remove the board and wire up instead. I have checked the joints and checked the board for spatter, removing what I can as and when I come across it. I'm now sitting without any modchip, checking to see if it works as stock again, only to be greeted with a frag. No matter what I've done from here has been the same result Could any of you direct me here and let me know of any possible fix. I've taken pictures of the board. Please let me know if you need any more info. I had to upload them to some image uoad site as the files were too large, so here they are as URLs below.

I have an Xbox 1.0. I have an Xecuter 2.3B Lite+ mod chip (solderless with the pogo pins). It was working fine both with or without the mod chip, however I was keen on changing this to a TSOP as the d0 pogo pin can sometimes move out of position causing 3 boots then FRAG (Christmas Lights). Through a combination of bad skill, a bad iron, and bad solder; I managed to lift all of the solder pads in question (R7D3 and R7R3), plus one of the alternate solder points to R7D3. See the attached images of the board with the lifted pads highlighted. Now without a mod chip, it Christmas Lights. I wasn't expecting this as I thought lifting the solder pads wouldn't actually cause any issues (since they are all at the end of a trace rather than in the middle), just prevent me from performing a TSOP. With the mod chip it still works fine. Also strangely if the mod chip is switched to Disabled, it now boots the mod chip. My understanding is that this indicates there is something so screwed with the TSOP that it's booting from LPC even without d0 being grounded. I'm wondering if there is anything that can be done to repair the TSOP here? I have checked every trace I can in the vicinity with a multimeter and they all seem to have continuity. The R7D2 resistor seems to still be connected just fine. There are a few traces I can't really check as they go under the Nvidia chip. Or am I best to give up on the TSOP and get an Aladdin XT-4032?
