XEcuter Chip Skinny Gray Wire

Recommended Posts

This machine boots and runs. I've been trying to find a wiring diagram to find out where this gray wire is supposed to be. I'm not 100% but I believe this is an old 2 piece execute chip. Any help would be appreciated

It's the D0 wire

I would suggest using the D0 in the bottom of the board as it's a bigger spot to solder to

Agreed on the solder job. I certainly cant take credit for it. 

I don't think anyone would put up there hand and say I did that soldering.

This was my first time soldering. I'm a welder by trade and now have nothing but respect for whoever does this all day. That little gray wire was a bitch. Thanks again for the help. I'm sure I'll have more questions now that I'm up and running.

It is something you get better at with practice

My 1st ever welds (stick welder) looked like pigeon droppings

If it works ...  Next time just pre-tin the pad and push the wire onto it with the iron tip.

i tried that. thats how i did all the others. The hole wasnt big enough to fit a staple threw let alone the gray wire. Im not saying it cant happen im just sayin i struggled with it

What he is saying is you add fresh solder to the pad and fresh solder on the wire then lay the wire on the pad and apply heat from the iron and the wire will sink to the solder on the pad.

Using leaded solder and flux paste helps as well.

      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.

      Hello all,
      Old friend just dug up his OG Xbox. It has an xecuter 2 mod chip. What would I need to do to use a 2TB SATA HDD besides the IDE to SATA adapter?
      Thanks in advance.

      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.
