Hi, I recently damaged my xbox while installing MakeMHz HDMI, I shorted the video encoder chip and killed the motherboard. I swapped the motherboard since then with a 1.4/1.5 (FOCUS), salvaged the xblast lite modchip but the xbox does not boot once D0 is wired. Xbox does auto on/off twice then turns on with fast flashing light. This is the same pattern I usually get when I have a short during 128mb ram install. Also I thoroughly followed the instructions https://bitbucket.org/psyko_chewbacca/lpcmod_os/wiki/xblast_lite_manual/Installation Long story short, the on board tsop is flashed with xblast OS and I can see the available banks of the modchip when D0 is not connected. Is there way to test the modchip separately and eventually fix it? it is the best modchip I ever used till now and would hope to make it work again. Thanks,
Hi, I am trying to download art for my games on my Xbox. The problem is when I start it it gives an error when I start the process with Magic Config. It says it is corrupted or damaged. The process stops afterwards. My console is hard modded with OpenXenuim and the OGXBOX installer 2021. What I am thinking it is that all my games are in subfolder either by category or by letter. I am thinking that is what is causing the problem. I just want to know if that is the case before I start reorganizing and... reorganizing. If it ain't that, put me in the right direction. Many thanks.
When your tring to solder to a circuit board and you damage it don't despair most stuff up's can be fixed If you have ripped the trace off the Xbox circuit board you need to STOP and try to relax, Walk away from the job for a minute or ten or more if neaded This is the trace that is damaged and need's to be repaired. This is a pic of a undamaged PCB same location. The red wire is what was suposed to happen 1st step Clean off the paint. I cheated and used a Glass fiber pen to do that but gentley scraping the track is ok you only nead to remove the paint. 2nd Step Add flux to the board 3rd Tin the trace 4th Prep the wire you are going to use. I use wirewrap wire for a repair like this one as it's a single strand. 5th Tin and trim the wire. I should have trimed it a bit shorter 6th Lay the wire on the tinned trace and apply heat. 7th Clean up the PCB Now rince and repeat for the other end. Once you have tested it and your happy a small dob of hot melt glue or even a dob(pin head sise) of super glue to stop the wire moving. Not on the solder joint say 5 to 10mm(1/4 inch) from the solder joint.
I think I damaged the X3 CE chip programmatically. I wanted to upgrade. I found the X3 Flash program. Cleaning, programming and suspension. I've restarted xbox and now I can not flash any bank. I have a backup for luck. But I do not know what to do next...
