I'm a fairly non technical person. I have modded 2 boxes in the past successfullly using a solderless adaptor. Unfortunately for Xmas, I promised my cousin I would mod his box for him. He purhcased an X-Chip. I started the mod last night, much to my dismay I found out it was a v1.6 - which requires some soldering. So I soldered all of the wires to the pin header and the motherboard, rebuilding the LPC Port, as instructed by the manual for the X-Chip. Please note I am horrible at soldering. The points that needed to be soldered were so small! I think I may have even damaged the board because I tried so many times to make the wire stick to the board, perhaps I burned the board. I reconnected everything and booted up the box. The box boots briefly for 3 secs then dies, starts up again for 3 secs and dies, and finally boots up with the red/green flashing LED and stays on. THE ENTIRE TIME THE TV SCREEN IS BLANK. The LED on the X-Chip however is lit. I was nervous cause I though I broke the xbox. So I removed all of the wires I soldered to see if the Xbox would reboot with the original Xbox bios. The pin-header was stuck in the motherboard from the solder so I did not remove it and kept it in. I reconnected everything and the box did not even reboot! So I figured I had nothing to lose and resoldered the wires again. Again I had a lot of trouble with the soldering. The good news is that the Xbox did boot again. The bad news is that it was the same problem as before. I thought this may a BIOS issue. So I moved on to Flash the X-Chip. I used EvoX_X-CHIP_BIOS_V1.3. I connected the USB cable and installed the software and drivers. I believe I have flashed the chip correctly. I watched the program write to the chip from my computer and it even verified it. I think the flashing went smoothly. I reboot and the same thing happens. I've tried to reboot numerous times. With the same outcome. Boots up twice and dies and finally boots up with the Red/Green Leds flashing. There have been a few times where the led flahses yellow/red with the first two boot ups and it ultimately ends with the flashing red/green. So what do you think guys? Did I blow this or is there hope. Your help is much appreciated!!! Happy Holidays.
