LPC Rebuild Aladdin XT Plus2 vs OpenXenium

Recommended Posts

I have like 6 1.6 boards that I was going through and was pre-emptively rebuilding for OpenXenium chips last year.  Fast Froward to this year and OpenXenium doubled in price and are usually sold out anyway. Decided that I'll just grab some of those cheap Aladdin XT Plus2 knock offs from aliExpress and buy one of those re-programmers for the chip. 

I have only installed OpenXeniums so this is my first experience with these Aladdin Chips.

Was looking this guide here on the forums and instead of wiring the D0 to a point on the pin header like with OpenXenium it says to ground it to something on the board while the comments say to ground it to the D0 point on the chip. Just wondering what would be the best practice for these chips. Also in the steps it does not mention cutting the trace on the L-Frame which I always heard was a must with these Aladdin chips.
