Need pre v1.6 R5N1 resistor value

I have a BGA rework station and decided to upgrade the CPU in my v1.0 xbox because why not. The operation went fine, except when removing the awful plastic clips for the heatsink attachments, my screwdriver slipped and knocked off 2 components. I did not notice this until after the operation.

One component knocked off was the RP5N1 100 Ohm terminator block for the RAM. This was easy to replace. The other component knocked off was the R5N1 resistor.

None of the resistors around it report any consistent value, so I can't just guess at it. A 128MB RAM upgrade guide here https://quade.co/2018/xbox-128mb-ram-upgrade/ actually has a picture of this resistor with the value printed on it, but the image is too blurry to read. On v1.0 this resistor is just blue with no value, but it looks like some version between 1.1 and 1.5 actually has the value printed on the resistor. If I could get that value, then I can fix the FRAG. I would hate to buy a 1.0 board just to get this resistor value.

I would really appreciate it if someone could get me images of the resistor value. It cannot be measured with a multimeter as one end has a really big cap on it, but maybe getting that reading would still be useful to me to narrow guessing at values (resistance will be something higher than what is read).

Also lesson learned: When removing the heatsink bracket screw clips, just chop them off and replace them with screws/nuts. It's way safer for your board.

On 2 different 1.0 boards R5N1 tests as 172.5 ohm

That's a big slip.

There is nothing had about removing the clips that hold the bracket on the PCB, Pull the pin out of the center 1st then the body of the clip almost falls out.

Soft modding is like masturbating, It gets the job done but it's nothing like the real thing.

I tried 200 Ohms and I got a bit of a buzzing sound, which seems incorrect. I have resistors to work out 180 Ohms and will try that next.

This R5N1 resistor connects to a voltage regulator with transistor U5B1 that outputs 9V. The equivalent on a v1.6 outputs 5V. This is concerning, however in general v1.6 voltages run lower than other revisions, particularly v1.0. (v1.0 northbridge/gpu and southbridge voltage is 1.66V, while on v1.6 these are just 1.32V). The presence or absence of R5N1 does not have an effect.

@Benur75 What do you mean a mobile P3 won't work? I have read that it works without mods, but runs at the lowest multiplier due to GHI# not being set. It's hard to get specifics from people though.

The next plan is to just put the original CPU back on. These old boards are easy to work with compared to modern crap with .4mm solder balls so it's not that hard to do to see if the board is ok.

      Hello everyone,
      I want to store my game collection in the most authentic way possible (matching Redump) but that takes a lot of storage. So, I did a little bit of research and now I have few questions (and few requests) that I hope someone could help me with.
      It seems to me that there are three main formats for storing a retail OG Xbox disc: (1) Redump ISO   (2) XISO  (3) Extracted files/Game Folder
      I did some testing with:
      Halo - Combat Evolved (USA) (Rev 2) {crc="013986d0"}
      JSRF - Jet Set Radio Future (USA) {crc="b2a882df"}
      Mortal Kombat - Deception (USA) {crc="007bcbcc"}
       
      A
      -----------------
      In the Xemu documentation it is mentioned that you can create an emulator-compatible .iso file by using either of the commands:

      -with dd:
      dd.exe if={redump_game_name}.iso of={output_game_name}.iso skip=387 bs=1M

      -with extract-xiso:
      extract-xiso.exe -r {redump_game_name}.iso

      But these two methods produce different .iso files. The one created with dd.exe is much bigger.
      A1- Are these two different forms of XISO or is the .iso file created with dd.exe just a trimming hack and not a proper XISO?
      A2- Is what is trimmed with dd.exe the same for every retail disc (meaning we can just keep one copy to rebuild every disc with it)?
      A3- What is the effect of using the two commands together?
      A4- In this post JayFoxRox says that we can separate the video and game partitions and recombine them later. Also he says that the video partition is the same for most retail games. Is that true? What games have special video partition? How to separate the two partitions and recombine them to give the original Redump CRC?
      If the video partition is the same for all/most games, that would mean that we can keep one copy of that partition to recreate the Redump ISO from any XISO file (saving a lot of space). The exception being the random padding that we need to find a way to recreate.

      -----------------

      Extracting the files from a Redump ISO with with extract-xiso
      extract-xiso.exe -x {redump_game_name}.iso
      then generating a .iso with them
      extract-xiso.exe -c {Folder_with_all_the_files}

      gives a .iso file with a different CRC32 to the .iso file that is created from
      extract-xiso.exe -r {redump_game_name}.iso
       
      I tried to use IsoBuster 4.8 (free) on a Redump ISO. It worked for listing the LBA for the files and for extracting the game files.

      IsoBuster always showed 4 partitions for the Redump ISOs:
      SEP13011042
      SEP13011042072
      VIDEO
      XBOX

      and two partitions for the XISO created with extract-xiso:
      -        {it's just a dash}
      XBOX

      The files didn't change (I extracted again and compared) but I noticed that the some LBA for the files is different. Maybe there is something else that is different as well?
      B1- Is there a program that can create/edit ISO files based on LBA information (maybe like PS3 ISO Rebuilder with IRD files)?
      B2- Does this mean that we need to create files like IRD files for the PS3 (Layout files?) to be able to recreate an XISO file from extracted files?
      B3- Anyone knows a program that can do that for XISO files? For Redump ISO files? (similar to Redump2IRD)

      Note: I tried IsoBuster 4.7 and didn't work for me. In their release notes for 4.8 they mention {better XISO support}.

      General Questions:
      1- Do you think we should start a database for the random blocks seeds using the tools in HERE? (even though we can't do it for all discs right now)
      2- Can anyone provide the attachments from this thread?
      3- Can anyone provide a compiled version of this program?

      I have noticed that there are still a few sealed consoles on ebay and they can get quite expensive.
      With all these consoles being sealed and in storage for over 15 years is it likely that the caps (apart from the usual problem caps) will need to be reformed or replaced before powered?

      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.
