Xblast Lite could be damaged

Hi,

 

I recently damaged my xbox while installing MakeMHz HDMI, I shorted the video encoder chip and killed the motherboard.

I swapped the motherboard since then with a 1.4/1.5 (FOCUS), salvaged the xblast lite modchip but the xbox does not boot once D0 is wired. Xbox does auto on/off twice then turns on with fast flashing light. This is the same pattern I usually get when I have a short during 128mb ram install. Also I thoroughly followed the instructions https://bitbucket.org/psyko_chewbacca/lpcmod_os/wiki/xblast_lite_manual/Installation

Long story short, the on board tsop is flashed with xblast OS and I can see the available banks of the modchip when D0 is not connected.

Is there way to test the modchip separately and eventually fix it? it is the best modchip I ever used till now and would hope to make it work again.

 

Thanks,

I suspect the bios banks you are seeing is not the mod chip try again with the Xblast lite chip unplugged and you will proberley still see the banks.

Is the eject button still functioning correctly.?

Have you tried to power on with the chip in recovery mode?

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

I confirm that the bios banks do not show with the Xblast lite chip unplugged, only the on board tsop is seen in Xblast OS.

I have not tried the eject button nor in recovery mod. Will give it a try!

Thanks

      Hi
      Im in the process of upgrading my ram. The mod chip im using is an x2.6 with ind-bios. I have the xblastos xbe installed on my HDD.
      My thinking was that I could boot to my dashboard then launch the xblastos xbe to check each ram chip. However, upon powering on the xbox, it boots three times and the led's flash red and orange.
      My question is do I need the xblast bios flashed to my modchip for the xbox to boot during the upgrade or have I made a mistake during the installation?
      Im quite confident about my soldering. Checking under x60 magnification and lots of light

      Hello all,

      Looking to get a Working Xbox for my nephew's birthday next month.

      I have my original modded xbox(1) that stopped working in storage, it has a little corrosion on the mod chips ground. It does nothing when powered.

      I also picked up 2 xboxes randomly a year or two ago that were thrown out.

      one (2) boots to a need service error, it defiantly sounds like a broken HDD.

      The other (3) does nothing like the first one, and has a short in the power connector. You can actually see light coming form under the connector with the top off.


      I welcome advice and help with where I should focus my efforts and what I should do. I assume that the ground being corroded on the mod chip would probably not produce the no boot? The HDD issue sounds like the easiest fix, can I just swap the HDD from the other non modded box to check if that is the only issue? And then I can just mod that xbox, I have not looked into what that would entail yet. But then the power connector short is probably a pretty simple fix as well. I do have a soldering iron, but was not the person who modded it originally and have little to no experience in that.

      (1) (the serial sticker is gone.)
