This is the 3rd time some one has asked the same question in 2 days

If you link the BT point on the mod chip to GND the chip will be always on.

That means you only have to solder the D0 point on the chip to D0 point on the mother board.

That's ok. 

You can just ground the D0 from the mother board as well.

D0 on the main board to ground and not to the chip

BT on the chip to ground and not to the main board.

the way i understood it, solder D0 to D0 on chip=modchip on but if it fails it boots tsop.

solder D0 to ground= chip on but if it fails it frags.

the stuff i read said D0 to ground but which D0 chip or board.

but i have got it now,

thanks to dave, and cottonmouth.

You solder the d0 point to a ground on the back of the Xbox motherboard.  If memory serves, you can use the screw holes on the back of the board.  Then you solder a small wire on the alladin so thats it's always on.  The BT i think.  You COULD solder the d0 point to the modchip, but I've never tried it.

If you do that it won't activate the chip as the BT on the chip will not get pulled to ground  to activate the chip

Do you have it the right way around? The writing on the back of the chip should be the correct way to read when looking from the front of the Xbox.

yes mikey, its due to where the caps are on 1.4, its definately the right way round i'm going to sand a "cats knacker" off the bottom edge.

while your here what is your opinion on the D0, on a 1.4 would you ground it or connect it to D0 on the chip, i like the idea of booting the stock bios if the chip fails, but i'm not convinced thats intended for xboxes other than 1.6.

i know it sounds like i'm pussyfooting around but i dont want to get it wrong.

Not sure what you meen about it won't fit because of a cap in the way can you post a pic?

Why are you fitting a mod chip in a version 1.4 instead of reflashing the BIOS?

The only time I have seen a mod chip fail is when installed incorrectly or when a reflash fails.

The only reason for making it boot to the MS BIOS was for Xbox Live and in that case the BT point on the chip was wired to the power button. Then powering on with the eject would boot the MS BIOS and using the power button would boot the modded BIOS.

right on my 1.4 these 2 caps below the lpc are 2 huge silver solid electrolytics  

though i have fitted it now, it was a real tight fit its obviously been recapped, i didn't tsop for 2 reasons i have a tsop the 1.1 i wanted to chipmod this one.

after the caper with the 1.1 i didn't fancy it besides its a 256 winbond..

I only fit mod chip's in version 1.6 Xbox's so have never had the clearance problem.

It could be the Chinese clone version of the chip is a slightly bigger as well.

I see what you mean now. This it a Version 1.2 MB

It would work mounted like the pic but it looks dodgy.

You could mount it this way.

Yes I know it's not a Aladdin plus2 it's one I pulled from a $10 nonworking version 1.1 box because the person that fitted it used to much heat when soldering and lifted traces.

that's it Dave, that one in the pic looks even worse than mine, if i had noticed it before putting the pin-header in i would have used the quick solder pads.

well its in now, it still booted after the header was fitted, though i have not tried the chip yet doing that tomorrow, if it boots then i will build the hdd with hexen 19, if it works should i reflash first or build the drive, i cant use its stock drive as its got softmod files on it.

      Hi all.
      Came across my old original modded Xbox in loft the other day and had a play and realised I’d missed it.
      Decided to get back into the scene and do some updates on it. Increase hard drive from 160gb to 2tb and a few other bits and pieces..
      i have the old Aladdin Advanced mod chip which boots to evox on long power press and stock on short. Now as Xbox live is no longer a thing on original Xbox, I’ve no further need to keep booting to stock as default.
      Whats the best way to alter it to have it boot with the chip active all the time? Or is there still a benefit to dual boot? If so can I switch the long and short presses around?
      Been a long long time since I messed with these things.
       
      All help appreciated.

      So here's my situation,
       
      My 1.6 burned out about two months ago now. Trusty system, but now it's doing the on/off three times frag thing.
       
      For 10 bucks I bought a 1.0 Xbox. It however, didn't have a hard drive in it. Error 7. The man gave me back my money and let me keep the Xbox because he didn't know it was lacking a hard drive.
       
      So, I have these two boxes. My 1.6 has an 80 gig drive.
       
      I received in the mail an Aladdin XT Plus 2.
       
      What can I use this chip for to get either of these boxes running?
      Can I simply plug the Aladdin chip onto the 1.0 board?
       
      Modding the 1.6 is a bit ridiculous, and I am not sure if the chip will repair the system anyway.
       
      I can't find any info on using the Aladdin chip on a 1.0 board, but with that unit NOT having a hard drive I cannot tsop flash it, so if I can boot it via the Aladdin chip and the then set it up I am PERFECTLY FINE with that as a solution.
       
      Looking for as little hogwash as possible.
       
       
      Thanks for your thoughts.
