Hey all.  Sorry if this has been posted, but I searched and couldn't really find anything.  I have a 1.0 Xbox that was handed to me by a friend.  He said he couldn't remember much about it, but that him and his kid tried to mod it a long time ago, and now it isn't working.  Upon opening it, I found a pin header, no modchip, tsop points soldered, and the underside D0 pad ripped off.  When I try to start the xbox, it cycles power 3 times then frags out.  I'm assuming this is due mainly to the ripped D0 trace.  I've tried repairing the trace, and bridging the two pads connected by the green line, but I can't seem to get the solder to stick.  Is there any other way to repair this, or is this the only way?  Relatively new to xbox modding so any tips would be appreciated.  Thank you!

Yes linking that trace should fix it 

It looks like you had the iron to hot and keep the heat there to long.

This is the wire I use.

You can also use wire from a Cat5 cable, it's a bit thicker but you probably have a old patch lead you can cut up.

This is good to clean the masking/paint from the trace to expose the copper underneath

I also recommend you use 60/40 solder with a maximum size of 1.0mm preferably 0.8mm with extra flux paste, Lead free solder i harder to work with nd needs a higher iron temp.

 

Practice soldering on a old non working computer main board or a PC video card.

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

Thanks for both the replies gentlemen, it's greatly appreciated!  Now the pad was already ripped off when I got it, but you can see at the via that I was burning the board also, so I will certainly turn the iron down... what temps do y'all usually run your irons at?  I also have awg30 wire, flux, and 60/40 solder.  Only thing I'm missing is a fiberglass pen, which I now have on order.  It'll probably get here on the 2nd, so I'll check in sometime after that and let y'all know how it went.  Thanks guys!

      Hello,
      I know PAL games can display 480p if a PAL Xbox is softmodded NTSC.
      But do those « forced » 480p PAL games are as good as native 480p NTSC games ?
      I explain my point : on a region free PAL Gamecube, you can force 480p on PAL games with Swiss. But some games aren’t as good as their NTSC equivalent in 480p, because they are optimized for 480i/576i mode, not for 480i/480p mode, and so they can have some issues with their pictures.
      So, my question is : do PAL Xbox games have this kind of optimization for PAL region, as Gamecube games, or are they strictly identical to NTSC ones ?
      Thanks for your answers.

      Hi all! I'm having some trouble with installing an OpenXenium purchased from MakeMHZ into an Xbox 1.0. I'm relatively new to this, and have surely made some mistakes. When I start it up, it does this: https://imgur.com/a/HTHYrU2
      Here's what I know: 
      Stupidly, I soldered the D0 pad on the modchip to the 1.6 pad - that has been fixed. I don't think this is the issue, because I have a second chip that I did not make this mistake with, and it still does not work.  I didn't scrape the solder mask off LPC ports, and really had trouble flowing the joints. The one I'm most concerned with is the bottom right joint of the first photo. Can I run a jump wire from that to one of the nearby test pads?  I'm fairly confident the D0 pad on the modchip is correctly connected to D0 on the board - I tested the continuity from the chip to the both points on the board, and was good.  I have photos available here: https://imgur.com/a/FX7R43B 
      Thanks for any info in advance!!

      Im looking for some ideas to try before I look for a replacement xbox. Im not sure if i can do anything else at this point.
      My xbox was soft modded for some time, but I wanted to do a tsop to unlock the drive and then put in a 2.5 inch 500 gb sata drive. I did the tsop (i have a v1.5) soldered the 2 point and flashed the tsop with hexen 2021 disc. Put in my sata driver with adpater and 80 pin cable and everything was great. I started uploaded the library that i have. I also removed the supercap.
      I was down to my really scrached discs and was trying to see i could get good copies from them, but gave up. I picked up some new titles and went to install them and the xbox wouldnt boot. I get the evo/xbox splash screen to a blank screen with the orange led. Tried booting hexen or soft mod or game disc and nothing.
      I tried cleaning out the dvd drive, that didnt help. The last thing i did with the drive was watch it with the cover off. It doesnt appear to be trying to focus nor does it appear to be emitting a laser. It does move the laser head unit on the rails. But i dont think this should stop a boot to harddrive?
      I went back to the ide drive and the 40 pin cable and no change. I tried combinations of hooking up pc cdrom to the ide and dvd on the power. Thought maybe the dvd drive was corrupting the ide bus.
      Ive checked my caps and board multiple times. The only thing i was suspicious of was a pin point spot on the nvidia chip, i hope it didnt melt itself inside.
      So thats where im at, i think my dvd is toast and maybe the ide on the motherboard is broken.
