Lpc Rebuild Boards, Your Experience.

Recommended Posts

Just a quick question to throw out to the community. I just did my first 1.6 LPC rebuild using a rebuild PCB. I`ve done many LPC rebuilds the old school way, just running wires to the appropriate points, but I saw these boards, so I grabbed a few to try out.  I have mixed feelings about them. Yes, it was as simple as soldering the connections on the board to the point right next to them, and yes, they do look more professional, but did they save me any time, not really. With all the fiddling around trying to make sure all the points were exactly where they needed to be before tacking them in was a pain, and took way longer than if I had just run wires to where they needed to go.

 

What is everyone elses  opinion and experiences with these LPC rebuild boards.

When these were released the scene was full of people new to modding.

Many a Xbox was damaged due to lack of skill / care.

If you can handle a soldering iron and make a tidy job then i say why bother.

I've never used a rebuild header and most likely wont bother in the future.

Up to the individual user i say.

All the rebuild boards are the same and will do the same job, I just do it like the pic I posted.

If your using one of the boards clean the location 1st with Isopropyl and a brush and when soldering use Flux it's your best friend when soldering

What about this board??? Any reviews

That's the exact one I used, only with green solder mask. It did work, and was easy enough to install, but only after about 15 minutes of fiddling around trying to get all the points to line up. After a while I gave up trying to line them all up, and just went with a "good enough" install. I guess it's either spend time running wires, or spend time aligning everything best you can.

      Ok I one of my xboxes just stopped working. I started desolder the pin header and my vellman vacuum pump ruined a few traces. So now I wonder where to solder the new wires.

      And should I cut the traces close to the solder points where it looks a little bit sketchy.
      I want to repair the visa for pin header and put some wires where it seems like I may have ruined the traces or what you call them.
       
      And also another question what is required for being able to download files in file section?

      Just passing this information on: I've just got word that FatXplorer 3.0 beta 1 has just been released for testing!

      This contains the long-awaited support of OGXbox disks!
      This means no more being restricted to FTP transfer speeds to fill your disks- you can drag and drop using the ordinary Windows interface. Some features are not yet supported such as: formatting. This means you would still need to format your disk first via your XBox using XBPartitioner, then connect it to your laptop/PC.
      I have noted that it does appear to support opening raw backup images, although NOT compressed ones (notably the XBMCOrigins torrent, as that comes in a custom .imgc compressed format due to being backed up by HDDRawCopyTool.). Also note that the final version will be pay-for software, although in my opinion well worth it. I've been using the 2.5 version for years for managing my 360 disks and love it.

      So after I pieced together some old XDK units I have become excited about the original xbox again.
      This got me to thinking what would the "Ultimate Xbox" include for you? If you had a custom case to include it all what would you include?
