Hi everyone!

 I have a 1.4 with trace issues, upon plugging in the power it starts automatically and when it's off, will occasionally boot at random.

I managed to repair one trace as a preventative but not the 3 needed to ensure it's not an issue anymore, I found them too hard to work on

I did the equivalent of the white wire and blue, is there another place to solder the other green/purple equivalent connections? It would be on the other side of the board I assume.

If you can solder to the little surface mounted resistors then you can do the holes, If you have the thin kynar wire then the holes arent too bad as you can use the hole for a guide, scratch the surface of the hole a little with a sharp blade and flux the wire and hole, then with the wire poking in the hole put a small amount of solder on the iron and it should flow when you touch the connection.  im not the best at soldering myself but thats how i do these little holes and it works for me (i also invested in a cheap pair of 1.5 reading glasses!).  you can practice on any old circuit board that has those holes.

      Selling this beauty. Only 4 consoles were ever made. I’m looking for offers really. Anything over 1000£ + would be considered. Will ship anywhere in the world, But you pay for that cost. Is usualy 69 £ tracked. Have a great one!

      I got a job lot recently of some consoles - and all of them have buggered Thomson drives 🙃
      I've tried adjusting pots, tried booting multiple burnt copies of HeXen and OGXBOXInstaller etc. but all seem to just hang on the Linux screen.
      Any suggestions for what can be done? Can a HDD be setup outside the console? I have FATXplorer - and I know Eaton was looking at adding more support for the OG Xboxes however I think these are all still in beta.
      Cheers guys
