Should the Aladdin Red Led Stay On Even When the Console Is Turned Off?

In a 1.6 yes, either pull pin 6 or cut the trace to the led.

will the led still turn on when the xbox is running if i pull pin 6? and which one is pin 6?

No, here’s info on the pin layout. You could find out the led voltage and change the resistor and run a wire from one of the 3.3v supplies as they are only powered when the Xbox is on.

This is how I prep the Aladdin modchip this way the led is switched in all version.

Cut the trace on the yellow line and add 2 links like the black lines

You don’t have to but it is supposed to help with the lifespan of the Xbox and you also then don’t need to solder the D0.

will it hurt anything if i do solder the d0 point anyway?

will that make the led come on when the chip is powered from the xbox being turned on?

Yes the led will be on if the Xbox is on and turn off with the Xbox's power button

i just want to be 100% certain i see this correctly, i should cut the trace in front of that black resistor, correct?

You don't have to cut the trace if you are connecting the D0 to the modchip

There 2 reasons for why people are  cutting the trace at the Xyclops chip

1st is some modchips can not pull the D0 point on a version 1.6 to 0 volt and that causes the modchip to not function.

2nd is the current required to activate the D0 point on a version 1.6 is about 10 times that of a version 1.0-1.4 D0 point and there is some concern that if it's permanently held low it may damage the Xbox..

My preference is to cut the trace on a 1.6 and not worry about the D0 and on the version 1.0-1.4 to ground the D0 if it's getting a modchip as I can see no reason to ever use the on board BIOS but each to their own.

is the concern that it may damage the xbox a valid concern?

I am on the fence on that.

I would lean on the side of caution and cut the trace but that's my opinion.

With Modchips like the X3,Xenium,Open Xenium I believe that the D0 point is only grounded when it's needed and at all other times it is left to float(meaning the pin can be anything from high to low voltage).

      My Xbox is not modded in any way. It has composite cables as well. My Xbox will occasionally boot up games normally but most of the time it boots up every game with only the audio. I saw a post on a forum a while ago about how to easily fix this, but I can no longer seem to find it.

      So I have sometime on my hands and Ive been playing around with some cheap aladdins I have kicking around. I've managed to get urjtag to read my jtag programmer(HW-USBN-2A) but when I run the 'detect' command it tells me my that TDO is stuck at 0 or 1. I originally tried with a cheap USB blaster but it just would not work.  Ive tried changing the wire, reconnecting the wires, powering the chip with the programmer, powering the chip with a xbox and powering the chip with a bench power supply.

      I finally got the parts for internal mounting of the OGx360, but i am not sure what to do with the reciever. Anyone got good ideas for where to put it internally, and in that case, how to get to the sync button easily?
       
      Is external mount best?
