X3ce Install Frag Help?

Recommended Posts

I have recently just installed a spare x3ce I have to an og xbox however some bits was missing, I dont have a switchboard or the cable to go to hdd/lan/d0 

I have installed the pin header fine and connected the x3 and everything lights up fine i get 5v and 3.3v light ( I have soldered d0 on the back and connected it to the d0 pin on the modchip) however now the console frags. Im pretty confidant my pin header is installed correctly as I have ram upgraded the same board I just cant understand why the console keeps fragging. I have not connected the hdd/ lan but I didnt think that would make any difference? Also the console boots normally without the mod chip on but obviously hangs on the xbox logo due to the 128mb ram.

I have checked and everything is sound with the soldering, pretty sure the x3 is bad, just tried it in another console that has a working x3 and the console fragged, either it is software or the backup is bad? anyway to recover?

I have also just checked and with the eye the modchip is cosmetically perfect no damage at all, however it will not boot in a console and instantly frag any console. Also I have compared it to another x3ce I have and again it looks identical, would this indicate that its a corrupt bios? or would it be because it could have an old bios and doesn't support the 128mb ram? all the consoles I have tried it in have been 128mb upgrades. cheers

This was my thought, Im going to check this out tomorrow/ monday and find the culprit. I have seen a few people have this issue online with no answer so I will report back if i find anything.

      This HDMI mod replaces the AV port completely and offers an HDMI port instead for convenience.
      The Installed HDMI mod does look like this:

      The HDMI mod does offer 5.1 sound through the HDMI port. If you don't need 5.1 (or your TV might not support it) you can simply disable 5.1 audio and get digital stereo audio instead. For those who want to add an optical output to there Xbox the HDMI mod does offer 3 solder points to add a TOTX178 optical transmitter.
      To get the HDMI mod installed you first need to get the AV-port removed.
      To get it removed you could either use a hot-air station or a heat-gun to remove it at once. But that would put a lot of thermal stress on the board!
      The better and recommended alternative is to disassemble the Port and remove it one part at a time.
      First desolder the Metal Tab holding it in place by heating them and prying the metal tab up to pull it out.

      When the metal tab is removed take a sidecutter and clip off all the pins from the video port as they are what keeps the Port in place.
      When they are clipped off you can take the port cover off by simply pulling it upwards.

      Next step is to remove the remaining plastic piece and desolder the rest of the pins and clean up the area a little.
      Position the first Adapter exactly as show in the photo. The red arrow marks the PTH that has to be alligned centered.

      Once Positioned solder all the marked points down and make sure they are properly connected before continuing with the second adapter!

      Next up is the second adapter. Just position it above the first adapter using the 2 big holes to allign them and solder down the marked points. Again check continuity before continuing with the next PCB!

      Last PCB is the HDMI mod itself. You need to position it slightly off centered on the second PCB. The HDMI ports pins will be position it correctly. Just solder down the points that are marked with the red arrows and the install is almos done!

      Last up is setting the Video mode. You need to add 2 small bridges on the bottom side of the PCB. Just solder in the 2 bridges and the video mode is set correctly!

      If you want to use the optical out you can easily add a toslink port to the HDMI mod by simply soldering a Transmitter to the 3 marked pins.

      Selling on ebay to make it fair on UK buyers. I really want this to go to a good home, I am only selling as I am moving house and need the money towards fees otherwise I would have kept it eternally haha. Thanks for taking the time to look.
