Hello All

I bought a faulty chipped 1.6 off of ebay.

I removed the LPC rebuild board and I notice a pulled contact. I think I've managed to retrace it, I checked continuity and it was OK and it booted! See attached picture.

I don't want to use the rebuild board but I am going to do a wire rebuild.

There are lots of pcitures around with various wire rebuilds. Some use slightly different wiring and state a rebuild for Aladdin or Xenium. Are all rebuilds all the same for every modchip, so I can follow any of them?

Also, I am quite nervous of trying this as it took a lot of patience to do the retrace. Should I use a glue gun or polyimide film tape to make sure the retrace doesn't come loose or am I tempting fate and should just leave it alone?

Are there any points I could use instead? 

Thanks in advance

The fact it is booting with the MS bios is a good sign.

This is how I do my version 1.6 LPC rebuilds 

This is one I did close to 15 years ago that came back for a hard drive upgrade (120gb to 2tb)


I also don't use the D0 point and cut the Lframe link on the top.


The only reason for the D0 wire is to allow Xbox Live.

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

Thanks @SS_Dave I have the Xecuter 2.6 working :) I did solder to the d0 pad.

Rather than try to wire in the pin header to the trace I fixed, I followed the trace to another location, carefully used a fibre glass pen to expose the round pad and soldered there.

Thanks for your help as always

      So i have a 1.6 or 1.6b xbox and i ordered a mod chip to try modding it. i see every time someone mods an xbox that have this board that they use with it.
      I don't have that board and want to ask if its possible to  mod it without it.

      Attempting a OpenXenium 1.6 mod and there appears to be an issue with the LPC board. I had it all completed and OpenXenium screen came up but after about 1-2 minutes (sometimes less) the fan will speed up, orange light flashes and Xbox powers down which appears to be either a overheating issue or there maybe some solder splatter I cannot see. I'm more than likely going to remove the board and wire it instead, or at least this is what I would like to do. 
      Is there a diagram out there that shows where the header pins should be wired? I have looked and have not seen anything. I do have another board but would rather wire it if this is possible.
      Thank you!

      i had ordered a lpc rebuild board and it got here today. turns out the one i ordered is too small to fit a pin header in so i'd have to solder the chip directly to the board for this rebuild board to work. i don't want to order another one so i am strongly considering just using the wire method to rebuild the lpc. problem is that i really dislike the kind of fine soldering that i'd have to do if i use this method. any tips on how to do the wire method the easiest way?
