When You Have Damaged Your Pcb While Trying To Mod It.

Recommended Posts

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.Damaged_PCB.jpg.65ca792edc8ed3cf4d6f8b4b495fc2b8.jpg

1st step Clean off the paint.

I cheated and used a Glass fiber pen to do that but gentley scraping the track is ok you only nead to remove the paint.

3rd Tin the trace

4th Prep the wire you are going to use. I use wirewrap wire for a repair like this one as it's a single strand.

5th Tin and trim the wire. I should have trimed it a bit shorter

6th Lay the wire on the tinned trace and apply heat.

7th Clean up the PCB

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.

      I got a used modded xbox today. As I am stupid, instead of reading much into it, I tried to update from Evox m7 to m8 plus. In the update zip I downloaded, there was not only the M8 bios, but also a file called flashbios_v303.bin. I thought that would be the right file to flash, so I did.
      It seems like the bios is not compatible with my mod chip. While I am able to boot and select a file to flash from the HDD (I tried to flash an old file), it just gives me the error "Unkown flash! Halting".
      Is there anyway to make flashbios write onto my modchip so I have a working bios again?

      Hi All,
      I found many different informations about the CheapLPC MOD (CheapMOD) and I try to install it to v1.4 and v1.6 versions. But I think I made a mistake or something else the problem, that is why I have questions.
      This was the first step. Please login or register to see this link. . I used it to create the PCB. SST 49LF020A in it. Flashed with evox.m8.v16.bin (256KB).
      The question, is there any REAL and usable diagram to soldering and wiring it in any version of xbox?
      Can I use the mentioned bios version?
      I would like to use the PCB version of CheapMOD, not the wired one.
      Thanks for any help!
