Damaged X3 Ce Chip?

Recommended Posts

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...

Well the back up bios is working which is a good start. Have you definitely erased banks 1-8? Try loading X3 config live by holding the white button on boot up, try it with 1,2 on 3,4 off then 1,3,4 off 2 on.

what methods of loading bios from flashbios have you tried? Try the write protect in both directions.

try installing an earlier version of the X3 bios and make sure it is the right version for your box.

unknown flash, halting! means the flash memory chip is write protected.  It cannot be reflashed while write protected.

The first two bytes the flashing software obtains when reading the chip id - manufacturer ID and product ID are 0x09 and 0x00 (the first two bytes of the BIOS) not the chip's ID bytes.

Before I made this unfortunate flash upgrade, everything worked without a problem before. The chip will act as if it was blocked, and all protections are off.
I tried flash hdd and http, unfortunately blocking.

When you posted you had a backup did you mean a backup chip or that you could load the backup bios? If you have a 2nd chip you can do a hotswap and boot the X3 erase.xbe once you have ftp’d to your hdd.

Sorry I misunderstood when you mentioned about flashbios on the backup chip. Do you have xecuter 2.6 or  another modchip or any other way to boot up a bios?

Where can I download the X3 erase.xbe file?

      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.Please login or register to see this attachment.

      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.
