ok so it seems I may have a problem then ive read in a few places that the xbox wont boot up!  which is what mine does ill know more once I get the chip just curious if I may have made a mistake installing the breakaway which does happen time to time this is my first xbox so it wouldn't surprise me if I did mess something up  heres the symptoms as of now 

push power lights up yellow orange shuts off repeats that cycle one more time and then turns on a 3rd time and blinks red to green and stays on but nothing load on screen

Ahh, yes, my mistake. 

The Aladdin chip has its own ground points for LFRAME. You cut the LFRAME trace on your board to make sure it doesn't fry your console's MCPX chip over time. So your console is looking for a BIOS, but it can't find one - because you essentially chopped its head off. No big!

You can temporarily fix this with a little bit of wire and tape if you wish to use the console in the meantime, but you should be back up and running when you're able to supply it with a BIOS over the LPC port (aka, installing a modchip)

 

FWIW, this is an optional step from what I understand. But it's certainly not one that hurts as replacing your MCPX chip... not gonna happen.

      QQ, I have what I believe a 1.4 with a bad tsop flash. Going to fit an Aladdin.#
       
      I only have to solder a wire from D0 to Ground right? Unless its a 1.5 then there's 2 more wires?
      Chip will be always on

      Hi there, 
      Noob that just join this community for some solid advice/direction for my upgrade,  
      I have a working 1.6A xbox with a Super Aladdin Live modchip running XBMC on a 80 Gb IDE HDD
      My aim is to upgrade the HDD to a 500 Gb Sata HDD (I know I could go bigger) and also upgrade to Rocky 5 instead.... 
      I currently have:
      - The 80 wire/40 pin IDE cable (ATA 100/133)
      - IDE to Sata converter 
      - 500Gb Sata HDD
      What are my options? Do I have to hot swap the HDD with the disk drive with a program running on the xbox ?  
      Thanks in advance for any help or links for guides/programs to help me !!

      Hi.
      When I try to boot into the dashboard the screen hangs on the xbox logo for a while and then displays the 07 error code 1 out 10 times/tries. Once I'm able to load the dashboard there are no problems. This problem has gotten worse over time and I am wondering if this points to a HDD problem. But the fact that once it has booted properly I can use it for hours with no issues or HDD failures which has me wondering if there are other issues here. The DVD searching sounds are pretty loud when I boot up the xbox.
      I seem to have an Aladdin XT 4032 modchip and a 1.4 or 1.5 xbox with a Focus video encoder chip.

      Any ideas?
      Help appreciated,
      S
