Hot-Swapping an X2.6 With an Aladdin?

Recommended Posts

Hi all, Just discovered the forum. Exited to be here! Hoping someone might have some wisdom to share with me. I recently had a bad flash on my x2.6 chip, both banks (running on a 1.6 Xbox) and so I'm hoping to hot swap it with a working Aladdin chip, which I ordered. Since everything is wired for the X2.6, would it be possible to hot swap from the Aladdin? Would I need to change anything to make it work with the Aladdin, or do anything special hardware-installation-wise? Would there be any complications with the flash? I was thinking of using Hexen 2019. Any insight appreciated. Thanks!

Hi KaosEngineer. Thanks for the reply. Sorry I'm still a little confused. I just compared instructions for the LPC rebuild on a 1.6 for Aladdin and Xecuter 2.6 chips and I noticed that there was one difference for 1 pin (Please See my comparison image below). 

What is this pin? Looking at instructions for another chip it was identified as "VCC 3.3", but that just had this pin shorting to another pin (so not exactly the same.)  Do I really need to solder this in for an Aladdin chip to work, and when I hot swap to the Xecuter 2.6, Do I risk frying the chip? Thanks in advance!

      Hi guys,
       
      Does anyone has any idea if a skin exist with cover support? I mean, but on a size specifically for CRT TV's? 4:3?
       
      The problem I am having is that most dashboards with cover support are made specifically for widescreen HD TV's, I am fine with that, but I use my Xbox exclusively on my Sony Wega CRT. It looks amazing because it has component inputs (I am about to build my component cable though).
       
      To me, this consoles are made to play on 4:3 on a good CRT, so ideally I would want a skin or a dashboard where I could see what I am doing! I don't think I am the only one! On a CRT Xbox4gamers looks tiny and is terrible to use. UnleashX is the perfect size for CRT's but I haven't found a skin that supports covers!
       
      Anyone knows of such a thing?
       
      Thank you guys, thank you all for your time and patience.
       
      Hector.

      I have a dvd drive that reads disks but crashes because the board is faulty - can I take a working board from a dvd drive with a laser that doesn't read disks?  And If so is it pretty easy to do - any guides?  Thanks

      Hello, i recently downloaded a pack with a list of hdd ready games for xbox. So far they have all worked, but for some reason when i try to play Conker, it sends me a text box in spanish that reads '' The disc might be corrupted or damaged'' and i can't get it to boot. Any suggestions? I already deleted save data and cache to no avail.
