So I bought this xbox from my local pawn shop when i saw it come in for 45 bucks. I know there are better deals out there but this one looked clean and the stickers no the bottom where intact. Knowing the system hadn't been opened the first thing i did when I got home other than test the system (and relive halo 2 for a little while) was pull the case off to prep for the clock capacitor removal. For giggles and farts when I saw the focus chip above the cpu heatsink i tested the resistance on the ground port from the LPC bus and found what i'd like to think is a good condition 1.5v motherboard. Now I am really just looking for someone here with a little more experience to tell me if i found the legendary fable board or if I botched the test somehow. Also if it is real hat are the value of these? Thanks.
The dreaded lights have finally arrived. I recieved my xbox second hand and it was already modded. I'm sure there's guide to this somewhere but I haven't seen it. Any ideas to the common causes and checks I should run? I've already started to take it apart and can't see anything terribly wrong, but I'm no expert...

Just picked up a few xboxes and some extras. Among the extras was an Xbit 1..5 chip. Id like to test it and find out if it works. But im not finding any info on how to install it anywhere. Does anyone have any info on the chip and maybe an install/Flashing guide? would be much appreciated, as this will be my First chip install!!
Hello Folks, I try to intsall a XBIT 1.5 Chip in a 1.6b console. I was having a pretty bad time, since most of the information is gone due to forums and websites are not available in 2018 anymore... But thanks to the wayback machine, I managed to get some information about the installation process of the chip. Well, it looks like that the chip is/was only compatible to v1.0 to 1.5 and the 1.6 revision was not out when this chip was released (I've read somewhere, that there is a 1.6 adaptor board). Anyway, thanks to google, I found out that it should be possible to use that chip in a 1.6 console, but I'm unsure if they used the 1.6 adaptor. After rebuilding the LPC port, I installed the chip as usual (Double checked the pinouts from thechip and the LPC port), left d0 unconnected since I've read, that this is not necessary on 1.6 consoles and performed a LFRAME cut. I flashed evolution-x m8 1.6b bios to the chip with a virutal installation of windows xp (the softwate really sucks and won't work on WIN10...) Well, all I get is the christmas light (Console turning on and off 3 times and flashes red/green) without any video signal. If I bridge the LFRAME signal with tweezeers, the console boots as usual. This either means, that either the connection between the console and the chip is wrong or the chip is broken and I don't know how to find that out. I tried multiple thing, like reconnectnig the LFRAME, soldering in D0, used the 1.5 pinout for soldering, used the 1.6 soldering (but without the adaptor). At the time, I think the chip is broken, because flashing works, but validating the files gives me an error. As said before, I read on a german forum, that you can actually use any not 1.6 compatible chip with a 1.6 console by cutting the LFRAME and not connecting the d0 point. Won't work for me Has anyone some tips, help, suggestion for me? Thanks in advanve!
