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

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.

      So that is my question,
       
      If I have MS dash 5960 from Rocky5 DVD (installed as an application) Do I still need to delete dashupdate.xbe? (from games) I have Rocky5 latest softmod and no hardmod on a 1.6.
       
      I have also heard that some games don't run if you delete dashupdate.xbe or downloader.xbe, is this true?
       
      Thank you so much, and I am sorry for so many questions, I guess it could be useful for people in the future.
       
      My regards and thanks to all,
      Hector.

      Hi everyone.
      What Xecuter MOD Chip is this?  I tried browsing the stickies but couldn't find a matching picture.  The only thing I remember is that this was solderless.
      Also, is there a diagram somewhere that I can solder it into the XBOX instead? 
      Thanks in advance.
