i have an original xenium chip 2nd gen (the beige one you can add an lcd ) i havent touched my xbox in years and i added a it with a solder less adapter .

when i boot my xbox it blinks 3 times and shuts off , i moved it to my second xbox and it just stays on red ,never turning green . I flipped the switch but i dont remember what it does, but that didnt help either .i hard solder the pins and solder a wire to the d0 on the chip and then tried to plug into the hold but doesnt seem to fit . does anyone have a guide or have any insight what my be wrong ,its been at least 10 years i have actually tired to boot my xbox and im trying to fix it ..i was thinking may i need to re-flash the chip but i dont remember how i even did it the 1st time ..

Remove the chip and chean all the points on the chip and board that are making contact. over the years those points to the main board will have developed bad connections.

Your best to post some pics as well as other problems could have occurred to the Xbox's.

Beige, you mean gold. I've seen blue, white and gold. Post a picture please.

Wayback Machine's capture of the Xenium Pin Header Installation Manual and Troubleshooting guide (PDF format).  Troubleshooting is not for the modchip though but Xbox error number information.

      So, I'm an old man and I can't remember how I flashed this XBox years ago. I have an Aladdin XT Plus2 with Evox +3935 and M8plus_16 fan 40.06 (not sure what size bios that is). I wrote a 2TB image to a drive and get an error telling me to upgrade to LBA48 ver 2. Can someone point me in the right direction. I do have FTP access to the box.

      Hi guys,
      My problem is that i can connect to ftp via filezilla and i can also download games from my hard drive but if i want to upload games it always says connection to  server lost... and then retries. What i have is a Alladin XT plus  and evolution x. Maybe someone knows the problem.

      Good afternoon team,
       
      I recently found my OG XBOX which I can't remember the last time I actually powered it on (possibly up to 10 years). I originally bought it to play emulators on back in the day and after watching some youtube clips on how the emulators have kept being updated, thought I would try to get it working again for the lols.
       
      I didn't have any cables anymore so orders some cheap 3rd party ones and a controller off of eBay.
       
      I held my breath and pressed the power button for the first time in forever... and to my surprise it tried to boot up, but then gave me the reboot x 3 and started to display the FRAG.
       
      From what I can tell the chip is an Xecutor Pro 2.x
      I tried various switch combinations but to no avail. I have also disconnected and reseated all the cables I could see, but to no avail.
      I have no way of determining if the HDD has failed (it is IDE and I no longer have any IDE tools/plugs), but if I remove the drive and try to power the xbox on without it, it still follows the same process (reboot x3, then FRAG), so I do not think that is the problem. I can only assume there is something wrong with the bios or the board itself.
       
      My question is: is this salvagable? Am I able to get it working again? I got a friend to mod the xbox back in the day so my technical skills with it are lacking. From the googling I did, apparently a XeniumICE mod chip might be able to bring it back to life, but I am not sure if that is compatible with the mod chip I already have (could they be swapped out?) and I am a noob at best at soldering (and I recall the Xecuter being difficult to solder).
       
      I have attached some photos of the machine and can give more information if needed. The searching on here seems to mention that the bios might need to be reflashed etc but this was one of the chips that needed a printer cable to connect ot it and reflash, so that might be an obsolete option now.
       
      Thanks in advance.
